I liked the episode except for Super Fun Bonding Hour with Carl and Michonne. You both lost family, we get it.

The other stuff was cool though. It was intense when Rick was sneaking around the house, strangles the poor guy taking a poop. Be interesting to see how this scientist thing plays out with Abraham and whether he really can develop a cure or something. He sure as hell shoots like he is a real scientist.

That guy wasn't pooping. Pretty sure he was rubbing one out, as his pants were up and was sitting on the toilet seat.

Also, I was kind of mad Michonne didn't take the gun that lady offed herself and her girls with. I know it was emotional, but dudes have like four bullets between them at this point.

I've been thinking about with this scientist guy, and I'm pretty sure he's going to turn out to be a fraud.

My favorite part of the survival horror/post-apocalyptic genre is the concept of instant change, where everything is flipped on its head. Suddenly a kitchen knife is worth more than diamonds; clean water worth more than fine wine; folks with archaic skills worth more modern skills.

It's a concept that hasn't been explored yet and this would be a cool way of exploring that kind of desperation and juxtaposition. They already pointed out Michonne was valuable because she learned to use a sword before shit hit the fan, but what about the flipside of that equation?

I'm thinking the Scientist is going to be a systems analyst/software engineer/hacker that finds his life skills reduced to worthlessness overnight, and he hooks up with this military dude with a bullshit story. Military dude already made it clear he was looking for useful people, which is why he stopped the truck while Glen and Teresa were killing walkers.

Not sure if this will come out when they get to some destination, or if someone will die protecting him and he'll spill the beans, or he himself will confess on his deathbed, but either way I think he'll turn out to be no scientist at all.

Weak episode. Rick having to escape some rough dudes was awesome but I don't like how Michone is a big softy now. She's a completely different character then last season. Always spilling her emo guts to stupid ass Carl.
& I don't really give a shit about these new people. What's up with GI Jane & her belly top? Was she stripper before this zombie shit? & that dude cannot be a scientist with a mullet like that! Looks like Mike Pyles cousin or something!
Next weeks episode should be legit with Darrel merking mad walkers BUT if that blonde girl cries one more fuckin time iama shoot myself with a crossbow

Holy fuck this show is getting boring again. I miss Game of Thrones.

And another thing, Beth and Daryl slammin moonshine like its coca cola and we're supposed to believe this is her first time drinking? She'd be pukin her brains out

Writers clearly didn't do their research.

First time I drank moonshine, I was so hammered I couldn't even sit on the ground. And I'm 230lbs.

Really liked tonight's episode. Just when you think things are coming together, people end up getting pulled apart. Very interested to see what happens with Daryl and what this Terminus place is. Assuming it's a train station, given all the intersecting routes, and Terminus could just be a play on Terminal.

These episodes are acting as a set-up to move further into the storyline while also adding character depth to the group. The weight of the season rests on the strength of the final outcome. The thing is if it ends up being a weak finale then it will all have felt in vein. But I believe in the writers and I don't think they would waste all this time on build-up just to let us down.

I feel like they could condense all the character development though. Its too much.

I did enjoy last night's episode more. Seems like everyones headed for Terminus now so we'll hopefully see it soon. Also be interesting to see where Daryl goes from here and who took Beth?!

The city of Atlanta originated as a train terminal of sorts and it's original name was Terminus. I agree with you tho

It was called Terminus because it was the end of the rail line at the time.

I avoided this thread entirely until I could get caught up because I remembered in previous seasons that those who have read the comics are always dropping spoilers or hints of things to come.

I found the same thing any time Game of Thrones comes up in discussion, those that read the Books can't help but spoil whats to come.

There really should be a no comics talk rule in the thread and a separate thread for them to discuss them with those that don't mind the spoilers.

So far this season has been the best since the 1st season although I don't think any single episode has lived up to the fantastic 1st episode of the series.

Agreed.

I love the character development.

I just read that in the comics it was two twin boys with the group and one turned out to be a psychopath and slaughters his brother. The group locks him in a van until they can decide what to do with him and Carl ends up sneaking to van that night and executes him to keep the group safe.

I don't have too many moments of, wtf just happened, when I watch shows, but tonight was definitely one of them.
