New season? Half season continuation? I've lost track. Anyway, Feb 9th, which is this Sunday if I somehow messed up the date. So as a minor recap, we have broken jail, dead Herschel and Governor, I'm saying dead baby but some people disagree, Carol is banished but I bet innocent, psycho kids, and the group thrown to the wind and separated. On side note, Andrea and Lori still dead so all is right in the world. Except the zombies.

Why do you think Carol is innocent? She admitted to killing the infected to Rick.

Thanks for the reminder. Can't wait for it. Smiley: smile

I think she was too quick to admit it and showed no remorse for it, and that isn't her personality. What would be in line with her personality would be to cover for the two little girls, though. And Rick's investigation was sloppy as **** since he didn't even think twice to ask about the incident with the rats and the fence almost toppling. I think its the girls because they don't seem to quite get the grasp that the walkers are zombies, but they certainly didn't have much problem shooting the living people who, admittedly weren't good guys either. I think they were feeding the zombies, and the two sick people questioned them about it, or just a psycho sense of priorities or something. Something is definitely off with them, though. They make more sense as the culprits to me than Carol.

Of course this is all speculation, even considering these characters (kind of) aren't in the books so take it with a grain of salt or two.

"Carl is a ****" only lasted one episode, which I think we can all agree is for the best. Great background for Michonne, maybe a little more than even the books. Been a while for me on that front admittedly. Next week's episode looks exciting, even if they smash all over the "Asians can't drive" cliche.

Overall, welcome back Kotter Walking Dead.

Oh, and zombie Herschel head. That was sad.

Liked the episode but some details slightly threw me off. The 'coma' Rick was in did not make much sense to me. I have virtually no medical experience/knowledge but is this really how this works?
Also, Michonnes camouflage tactic... really? Two walkers on a leash and somehow the ones behind here, with nothing between them and her, can't sense her? (I know she did this before, but still.)

I think Rick just passed out for a day. He had been shot, beaten up, almost choked to death, then had to limp around a few miles & scrounge for food. He was also emotionally drained, so his body probably just said ********** it" & went to sleep for a bit. Thank Christ he didn't start talking to dead Lori on the phone again (which he does at this point in the comic, again).

It was also established quite early on that Zombies will mostly ignore you if you smell like zombie. It was neat to see Michonne "shut down" again, & even neater to see a glimpse as to why she did. Nice of her to decide not to be part of the Walking Dead again.

I know we're going to play catchup with the rest of team Rick next week, but since that'll probably touch on everyone else besides Rick, Carl, & Michonne I expect it to jump around quite a bit.

I predict we'll see the return of it once things settle down. Lori will tell him how she and the baby are in a better place and such.

Passing out at this point is quite understandable. I just found it curious how he didn't wake up when being shaken by his son. He had been sleeping for 8-12 hours by then. Depending on how long Carl slept and how long he ate/read.

Ugh yeah, surely can do without more ghostphoning.

I got that. But it made sense when they smeared themselves in zombie-guts in the first season. Walking in the vicinity of some zombies makes less sense (to me) since then you would be invisible to them as soon as you stand in the midst of their group. At least the walkers behind her and to her sides should have smelled Michonne since she didn't block them with her 'bodyguards'.

Kind of disappointed being wrong about the baby, but if there was any doubts about the little girl's mental state should be cleared. So no one of any significance is gone. Nice of them to bring back Carol so quickly.

Also ************* yeah Abraham! That means it's almost baseball season. Smiley: sly[/spoiler]

Much better episode than the mid-season premier. Answers were to be had, no one really did anything out of character, & I audibly exclaimed "YAY!" on at least two occasions. Terminus does not sound like it will be a good time, though.

Abraham and Eugene Smiley: thumbsup

That was one sad, and pink, room. Think those were Negan's men? The man himself isn't supposed to show up in season 4, but that doesn't mean his crew can't make an appearance or two.

So, there's a good chance they botch this up, too, and he'll become a fan favourite? Smiley: lol

More on topic: While I didn't mind it for the 3 episodes after the prison, I'd like it if it won't take long before what's left of the group unites again.

So, those guys that met up with Daryl were the same dudes that stormed Rick's "house". Also, Daryl in the mortuary was awesome. Sasha played Andrea this episode, I hope that doesn't continue.

Apparently she's like... 28 years old..

Pretty white girls, gotta be a valuable commodity in the apocalypse.

But really, she keeps her skin smooth and clean throughout most of the series. Without her handbag filled with lotions and soap, how is she going to survive?

So, something similar happens in the comics. While I know I shouldn't have been surprised, I totally was. I think the Talking Dead was WAY more somber tonight than even than after the Herschel dieing episode.

****.

Just watched it. The first half I wasn't too thrilled about it. It did not bore me or strike me as bad. It just reminded me a bit about the slower episodes of season 2. But then...

No one's allowed to be happy TWD. If they just happen to be, something terrible will happen to them.

I didn't expect this week's episode to be better than last week's and it wasn't. Almost fell asleep. I kind of wonder if they're going to skip Jesus all together at this point. One episode left of the season.

Negan gonna show up is my bet.

I'm thinking Terminus is full of cannibals. I also think the season finale is going to be brutal, since this was a "happy" episode.

I kinda agree. But it just shows how much we are acclimatized to close-ups of decayed faces getting smashed, stabbed and shot. Smiley: lol

So ... cannibals. Kind of a weak season ender. Nothing really unpredictable, and not much of a cliff hanger either. Watching Rick lose his **** was probably the high point of the episode.

It feels like this should have been the 2nd to last episode of the season, but other than that I liked this episode. Rick basically becomes a zombie in order to save his son, gets the band together, & is now ready to take down terminus.

Yes, felt more like a build-up episode than a finale.

Overall the season was pretty good. It had many highpoints and apart from a bit much Govenor prior to the midseason finale I can't remember any particular weak episodes.

So I just read the comics and re-watched the first few episodes... and something occurred to me.

None of this is actually happening. Rick is still in his coma laying in bed at the hospital. The last episode he will wake up and Shane, Lorie and everyone will be alive. The screen will go back to being black and white and Dorothy will excitedly tell everyone about how they were all there in the wonderful land of Oz and the whole thing will be forgotten about the next day save for those few precious remnants of memory that will haunt Rick's dreams for the rest of his life.

Um...no. Especially since they're working on a 2nd spin-off show of TWD that won't use characters from the comics at all.

I don't know, it'd be a pretty good way to end the TV series if anything.

As far as the books, they lost steam about two arcs ago and I find myself continue reading it simply because I used to read them. The whole Negan thing was basically a rehash of the whole Governor thing, except Negan felt much less menacing. Which wouldn't be so bad but it was like they were trying to make him detestable, but it just didn't work.

I'm only buying the trades now, so I'm not done with All Out War yet.

But Nagen's first appearance was pretty bad ***, as was the line he says to Rick after his first visit to Rick Town.

And I'm ****** about the Tiger.
