At the same time, I also think this has to do with Rick's ego. Carol was taking the lead and making numerous decisions that either went directly against what he wanted to do, or just without involving him in the first place.



That's an excellent point. He was bent out of shape about some of her decisions, and could have more to do with removing a threat to leadership than anything.

Seems next episode will deal a bit with the decision to boot her without the group having a say.

I thought last night's episode was pretty good.

Seems Rick realizes that Carl can handle himself
And seems him as a man now all grown up

Missed a lot of last season. Why is everyone getting sick and turning into zombies? Did they figure that's how the outbreak started?

Pretty good episode. The Governor popped up right at the end. I was just wondering about him and figured it was just a matter of time before we saw him again.

I'm a little disappointed he popped back up so soon. I would've preferred a season in between the Governor storyline to build up anticipation for his return.

This season isn't doing it for me at all!!!

I am starting to get bored with this show. I was a big fan of previous seasons,. This whole season so far, is trying to get you to feel bad for people we have no history really at all with. Most of the people they want you to feel for, are people we barely know. They just bring them into the end of last seasons episode, and they focus on them dying off all this season. We are to care?

But on top of all this, the show is acting as if the ppl watching are morons.

Rick and his son shooting 15-20 feet away at around 100 zombies coming at them. Rick is shooting as if he is casually at target practice. His son has never used a rifle and seems to be perfectly fine using it. Give me a bleeping break!
For someone who used a rifle in the Army, those rifles jam up quite a bit!
On top of it, why is Rick risking his sons life? They couldn't just run inside where it is safe, or try to get some help?

That fence was about to break episodes ago and all a sudden pieces of wood is going to hold it up? Where was the plan if it breaks, considering they were aware? But then they have a woman by herself trying to kill off hundreds that are pushing up against the fence?

Well at least the governor is on his way back, and finally save this season, cause IMO its been slow and boring!

This show is not the same.

Carl has used a rifle in previous episodes. Just never an M-4.

There are a bunch of zombies creeping on the fence.... let's put some logs here and wait til' they break so we can waste a bunch of useful ammo. It's not like we never use spears and other sharp objects through the fence to control them.

Are molotovs illegal in the post-pandemic world?


Let's use a whole hour to let the viewers know that things got fucked up in the quarantine block, that the fence got broken and that Rick feels good about his son, and put the governor in for 3 seconds so people get excited and think this was a good episode.

Yeah, the fence this is silly. Anytime they show the survivors, they're killing a zombie every three seconds. There's maybe fifty at the fence. Wouldn't that take you a solid five minutes to kill every one? They can't climb so eventually you'll just have a rotting zombie barricade around the whole damn place.

Hopefully the Governer can spice things up. The show has been pretty weak since Merle died.

Just suprised a main character hasn't died yet.
With that being said.

There is only 3 episodes left till mid season is done
Won't be back till mid Feb.

Some one will probably be killed off during mid season finale

I absolutely love the character of The Governor and loved him even more after this episode. He definitely has the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde feel to him. Now we just wait for another mental breakdown.

But as much as I love him as a villain.. How badass would it be to see a Rick/Governor duo happen?

It's gonna be interesting to see how this plays out. In a previous episode it shows the Governor looking in at the prison. And this episode shows him with his old crew. It leaves one wondering if another prison attack is gonna happen or what.

Also the women that hit it off with the Governor, I thought she looked a lot like Maggie.

Excellent episode, not what I was expecting at all.


Long shot prediction: The Governor promised the little girl that he would never let anything happen to her. I think they will run around without his old group, they will have a disagreement, the Governor will actually have to protect the women from his old group and he decides the only safe place for them is at the prison and that is why we see him outside the gates in the last episode.
