I thought the Preacher guy was going to kill himself with his machete but he used it to remove the wooden boards and escaped the church after the group sealed everyone in. Thought for sure he was going to die but he survived a zombie attack.

Guess Glenn's group isn't going back to Rick. Eugene thought Rosita how to filter water. They saw some fish so they used the net lining of jump suits to catch them. Tara finds a yoyo.

Sasha was so dumb. Mr. Smooth Cop guy was just too nice and friendly and cooperative. Using the most obvious reverse psychology to trick Sasha. I was laughing at Rick's plan to go in and murder everyone just to rescue Beth and Carol. I don't know what Dawn's deal is. First she is a hard ass, then she helps Beth. Next week is the fall finale.

I'm not sure what the preacher is up to. My first reaction was going to get some walker killing practice with the new machete. He's up to something, he's gonna lead walkers to the church.

I was thinking that Rick's group could be captured next week by Dawn and then you'd have Glenn's group come to the rescue. Or would that be too similar to what happened at Terminus? People get captured and need to be rescued a lot in this show.

The splatted walkers on the sidewalk looked awesome I thought. I was sure that Daryl was going to use the walker's head to bite the cop.

Daryl having to talk Rick down after Rick had gone into BEAST MODE was a really nice touch. They're giving Daryl a whole lot more depth and humanity - it's interesting to see him become a bit more of a the moral compass (even if being the moral compass on this show means you die a horrible death).

I often feel that that people are way too hard on these characters living in the zombie apocalypse, but yeah... Sasha's move was really, really dumb - like, I'd easily call it one of the dumbest moves made by any character on the show.

Way too much, frankly. For a season that really started off with a bang, things have grinded down pretty quickly. I hope this episode sets up for something big, because I'm not really sure what we learned in this one. We've had some pretty big heavies; I just don't see the hospital being all that challenging.

It would have seemed more beastly had the cop not stood up. He was staring down Rick, and Rick kept him at bay. I get what they were going for, but the cop was not backing down. On a related note, I liked Rick being reminded he was a cop, and what that meant to him. And what he's become since.

I hate Eugene even when he has no lines and does nothing. I do not appreciate the parallel of Eugene and Carol in this episode because how dare he even indirectly sully the standing of Our Lord and Savior? I hate the preacher. I loved Micchone reaching out to him.

Where's Morgan? There has to be a reason we saw him at the end of the season premiere.

I was rewatching the Daryl and Carol episode and the Talking Dead with CM Punk and Shirley, and Daryl moved Carol's hand when she tried to "shoot Noah in the leg"... I am sure, too, that Carol was going to take him out after he stole their weapons ("If he dies from that, he dies," she said after). So yeah, Daryl is becoming the moral compass.

I read it differently. I thought they were drawing a parallel to Carl shooting that kid who was surrendering back at the prison.

Yeah, I'd say right at the top of the list of people you cannot trust is anyone you've just captured at gunpoint and tied up.
