I don't have a lot of complaints about this episode, as it was pretty much wall-to-wall action. I think it's the best episode of this season, but then again zombie killing is always fun, so...

Having never fired a machine gun, Carl proved pretty adept. That was kind of a cool scene, actually, with Carl tossing Rick new rounds as the systematically took down the Walker swarm that compromised the outer fences.

The illness still proves to be the Achilles' heel of the camp, as nearly everyone save for Herschel was too sick to really fight back when people started dropping (save for the guy with the gun who was DUMB DUMB DUMB). But just when Herschel looks like he's on his last leg (HEYOO), he some how survives to save Glenn.

So I guess my prediction that The Governor would not return this season was wrong, 'cause man...

You know, I liked the episode, especially the parts dealing with the plague, but if it was that easy for two people to gun down like 100 walkers:

1) Why didn't they just do that weeks ago, before they overran the fences?

and

2) Why did the US Army suck so bad during the initial outbreak? I mean, shouldn't thousands of trained, professional soldiers have been able to deal with this if a beaten-down sheriff and his 13(?)-year-old son could manage it?


Other than that plot hole(which really isn't the least believable thing about this show), I thought we got some really strong performances out of all the actors, and next week with Phillip ought to be interesting, even though I'm not sure exactly what kind of threat a single man presents to an armed community.

I don't think he's a single man. I think he's been gathering an army.

Good episode. But the blood surely has to start flowing next week, right?

I thought this too. Best logic I can muster is that walkers are infinite, bullets are not. As long as they could keep them out of the fence and the fence holds, bullets are meant to be conserved for other threats, like evil people. The preferred means of killing Walkers is always sharp edged weapon through head. Guns waste ammo and are loud, which brings other Walkers, so they're not the best option.

Also, after roughly 2 years of fighting Walkers, they're just tired of having to do it unless they're under immediate attack. Walkers are just a part of life now, so like when Hershel and Carl ran into Crazy Lady Walker and Hershel said, "Don't." and they left, they just don't kill every Walker they run across just for the sake of it anymore.

In the case of the Walkers storming the fence, it'd would be impossible for Rick and Carl to take them all on by hand, so the machine guns was the best option.

To answer your other question: If the world military was able to quell the walker apocalypse before it occurred, there would be no TV show called The Walking Dead.

I don't think it was well known that everyone was infected until it was too late. At least, that's what I take from the military's inability to deal with the situation. They very easily could have been attempting to care for people who later died and then overran the bases from the inside.

Not to mention that, in this reality, everyone is a little stupid. Or, given the benefit of the doubt, one mistake can cost you big time.

Well, that's obviously the correct answer, but I think my larger point may have been that I don't like it when the show invites me to ask questions like this.

You mean like why Rick didn't just pull up the whole tomato plant and bring it back to the jail and re-plant it, much like all the rest of the fruit/veggie plants?

Or also: why is Lizzie wearing cowboy boots that tend to catch her hell when walking backwards baiting a Walker?

I could go on and on, but it's a show that I watch and enjoy. There really aren't that many times stuff screams out at me.

Also, haven't they established that the sound of gun fire attracts walkers, or did I imagine that?

Pretty much any sound attracts them, gunshots just happen to be loud.

I watch the show despite of all the plot holes. Which is weird from me because I usually give up shows because of them. But this show is a "popcorn movie" show for me whereas I grab my Diet Coke and my popcorn and turn my brain off for one hour on Sunday and just enjoy the ride.

If I thought about it too much, I would have given up on this show in Season 1.

And I really thought Glenn was going to die. In fact, I was a little surprised he didn't. This show always throws a curve ball once in a while and I thought it was time for one.



Life is hilariously cruel.

Not everybody in the Army is a marksman with a weapon, you have admin guys, medics, supply guys, etc.

Plus, as pointed out, they had no idea what they were dealing with. A rampant virus coupled with what looks like rabies, which then leads to the dead rising in triage units and everyone being overrun in a matter of days.

Are they now out of faceless nobodies that die every week?

I am not a huge Herschel fan, but he's fine in small does. A whole episode based on his plight is a but much for me though.

I like last week better, but I like it when they go on location.

I have an easier time buying stupid actions or non-actions when they're committed by a child and an exhausted man with one leg. Still, The Lovely Mrs. Tracker has been screaming "LOCK THE CELLS" every time we see sick bay.

I like Maggie stepping up. I like Carl stepping up. Rick regarding his son anew will make the big reveal (still clinging to that notion) that much more painful.

I'm liking the recurring garden theme.

I look forward to next week's episode something fierce.

This was the best episode of the season, IMO. I admitit, I am getting tired of gore for the sake of gore. This episode was truly suspenseful and nerve racking, which is what I think the show does best. Sometimes it seems like the over the top gore is just there to shock, and it desensitizes the audience after a while. But making you think beloved characters are about to die never gets old.

I would so totally see this just to see Robert Patrick. He stole the trailer right there. "Would somebody please shoot this guy?" "What does it look like we're doing?" "Missing!"
