    Yeah really like Abraham in the comics. One of my favourite characters :)

    It's back ! And it's back to a dawdling- sorry, more thoughtful and reflective pace.

    No, I thought that episode was great. The show can have a few episodes that are slower without it becoming a problem. Nothing much happened in the Clear episode from a season or so ago, and that was basically the best the show has ever been.

    It's only when people start talking that the problems arise. :p

    I also thought it was a really good episode. I like it when it's a smaller group and focused on what I assume a normal day in a post zombicalyptic world would be like.

    I hope they keep the characters separated for a much longer time than after the farm fight. Keep juggling small groups / individual characters for years and years please.

    @huh_what:
    Probably because it had been recently eaten...

    And they possibly didn't show her checking the three empty houses before that...

    The new episode seemed to write Carl like an annoying asshole again when he was gradually moving away from that...

    Still not convinced Judith's dead...

    She's not dead. We've seen nothing to show that she is.
    In TV land if you don't see a death/body then = not dead.

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    In the "Next time on The Walking Dead.." bit afterwards it had a bit of a spoiler showing who actually is alive.

    Cracking Episode though - I don't think Carl is going back to be annoying, he's still a kid and it showed him learning how to survive. He's still going to be a bit cocky or end up in situations that he loses control of, and yes he won't always think straight, like checking the door first, like an adult would do but he is learning.

    @Scurrminator:
    No sign of her in the "next week"...
    And nothing to show isn't true, unless they habitually paint the baby seat with blood...

    Anyway, a bit odd what they're doing...They had a rendezvous set in case things went bad and now it's just everyone for themselves...

    Yeah, an equally plausible reason for not showing her dead body is that the producers didn't want to show a dead baby onscreen. Instead preferring to strongly hint that the baby is dead, through, say, a baby seat covered in blood.

    That baby Judith is not dead. The fact that the kids struggled to carry her in the baby seat, yet still got away only logically means they took her out of it. I doubt they just dropped her and went off.

    Great episode imo. That Michone flashback was really harrowing. I never thought they would go back to her origins, especially in regards to the origin of her first zombie pets.

    The episode is in, and the wee baby Judith is... alive. I knew I should have stuck with my original assumption that it was too confronting for TV.

    Bit annoying how they teased it with the bloody car seat, though. Feels like a cheap way to have a cliffhanger.

    In the last episode before the break if you look hard enough you can see that Tyrese is carrying her when they flee

    I also find it weird that they didn't appear to have any plan for an emergency. Apart from "everyone run away in different directions!"

    Usually you would have a designated meeting point or something. But I guess it wouldn't be as dramatic if everyone knew where everyone else was.

    Leadership structure seemed to have basically fallen apart in fairness. Not massively surprised that they wouldn't be speaking strategically.

    On an interesting note, I don't recall Terminus in the comics, so maybe they're completely split from this point on? I wouldn't lose any sleep if we never see Negan.

    It's not really a matter of leadership at that point. Just a matter of getting people together on a quiet day and saying "ok, here is where we meet up if something goes wrong". They had a lot of other safety precautions!

    Anyway, as far as Terminus goes, no, it's not in the comics. Could be just a different name for a similar sort of place, though. It sounds a lot cooler than 'Alexandria Safe Zone'.

    (very minor, non-plot details from the comic above)

    Pretty amusing closing shot of Abraham, Rosita and Eugene from the comics, framed just so. It was almost like TWD the show was doing a parody of the comics. People are already bitching about TV Abraham looking like an overweight slob.

    Good episode. Bit of a let down that EVERYONE made it.

    I'm not too happy to see them hole up in another haven. Hopefully it'll just be some pipe dream.

    Nice to know who the rat catcher is. Although it was told in a very comic book fashion.

    Yep another episode of WTF decisions...

    So here's my theory about Judith then, Tyreese grabbed her from the seat and cut himself whilst doing it, thus bleeding all over it...

    Makes sense...

    The "releasing zombies one by one from the bus" was a good plan if zombies were known for their calm behaviour...
    Why not have someone make a lot of noise at the front of the bus and then quietly opening the back?

    Glenn running into a pack of zombies "because riot gear", also made no sense...Surely there are other ways out of the prison? Maybe the huge hole Tyreese came through?

    Also what's with the whole Tyreese bleeding bit? Is it to make us worry about a possible bite? Then why two scenes later has the bandage disappeared and is there no real damage to his arm anyway?

    EDIT:

    Oh yeah, and the bus...Did they stop to pick up a hitchhiking zombie? Did they have a dead person aboard and just thought "fuck it"?

    If they had had Glenn aboard they might've had a chance of surviving, but nooooo...Love...

    Decent episode. Obvious Judith wasn't dead.

    Focusing on Tyrese bleeding was probably to connect the blood in the car seat carrier.

    How do you have a safe meeting point outside the prison? Just because it's safe one day doesn't mean that spot will be safe the next. It's why they're in the prison to begin with.

    That little girl though. First time I wanna see a child get killed.

    Well, generally having a place to meet is surely preferable to everyone running off by themselves like headless chickens, even if it's not 100% safe.

    It's not a huge deal or anything, though. I still liked most of the episode, even though I liked the first one more.

    As for Judith, I am glad she's alive (although I still think the bloody car seat thing was awfully cheap).

    I do hope that they don't go overboard on "OH NO THE BABY IS IN TROUBLE" device, though. That would also be cheap.

    An interesting episode I guess with too many flaws to mention. The problem with episodes like these where the camera isn't focusing on large groups, is that people that can't act are being asked to act and show human emotions which a lot of them can't do convincingly.

    Was Lizzie trying to kill Judith? Probably the only interesting part of that entire episode.

    What was Glenn thinking just walking into a horde of Walkers? And he miraculously makes it out too. Just too stupid for me.


    The writing is terrible and the only thing they seem to care about is minimizing expenses which is ridiculous considering how many people are watching this show. They'll spend the rest of the season wandering around the woods, occasionally skirmishing with a few walkers and then they'll reach somewhere they can hunker down and bicker for a season or two.

    I don't know that Lizzie is a complete psycho just yet. It's possible that she just took Carol's talk of getting rid of "weakness" the wrong way.

    Or the right way, considering how ruthless Carol seems to be now.

    I'd say she'x a full blown sado-spycho-killer.

    The rats. The rabbit and the joy when she realized that a dead baby can't scream.
