    Of course there is information that it is stagnant. I just explained.

    I'm not sure why you are so confused. Let me spell it out for you. It is a very bad idea to drink water from a low lying, flat area that has decaying bodies in it or near it.

    I don't think people forget that. It is rather obvious, wouldn't you say?

    The problem is that the show is inconsistent. Having a supply of clean drinking water is essential. But that has not been discussed or shown, unless you count that ridiculous scene of Carol playing with a hose going to some bad water.

    The horde wasn't immediately viewable. The first walkers:

    Then they came around the bend:

    That is when they saw the horde and stopped:

    And it looks like they are catching water. The downspout above the water barrel:

    You posed the question about drinking roof water.
    My response was that if it were a choice to die or drink roof water, I'd drink the water. You neglected the fact that I said I would if I have to, which implies no other options. So where I got the idea that there were no other options was from my response to you where I gave the conditions under which I would drink the roof water. And by the way, your original question did not include other options being available so there's another source for the idea that there were no other options.

    You said it's certainly not fast flowing.
    FYI not fast flowing does not mean stagnant.

    I didn't say or even imply that it was a good idea to drink the water, I simply questioned you calling it stagnant when you have no actual facts to back it up.

    You mean like how they have not discussed or shown the water to be stagnant or not?

    On the Talking Dead, they said that Scott Wilson's actual leg was buried in the ground for the filming of that scene.

    I wonder why Carol would burn the bodies.

    I'm surprised they haven't stockpiled SUVs. You don't need a super fast 0-60 speed. You just need speed, size and elbow room and some type of ram on the front end to bust through zombies.

    All the bickering made reading this thread was a chore.

    I agree. When they do **** like this, it's like they don't RESPECT US, the viewers. Makes me angry

    This episode further underscored how stupid a crossbow is as Daryl's choice of zombie-killing weapon. He can get off one shot and then it's useless in close quarters. And either he has to go back and retrieve his bolts, or he quickly runs out. The only advantage it has over a gun is the lack of noise, but that's about it. I would think a pistol with a couple extra magazines, a katana sword, and a good-sized knife would be the best complement of weapons to carry in their situation.

    Except that eventually bullets will be in short supply. Knives and katanas require shorter distance. As long as you have the proper bow for your strength you can draw another arrow quickly.

    Yes, everything would be in short supply in this type of situation. But I'll bet that finding bullets will be much easier than finding crossbow bolts. And you don't have to go retrieve your bullets from a dead walker's head after shooting it. Unless you have an unlimited supply of bolts or you can always go to the target area and retrieve your bolts, and you're not doing any kind of close quarter fighting, then a crossbow just doesn't make any sense.

    Watching that battle there, the katana was by far the best weapon. No reloading, and the way she wields the thing it's like a part of her.

    This question is unrelated to this episode, but I just remembered something from last season (I think) that I'm really confused about. Remember right after Lori died, Rick was receiving phone calls in the prison. He heard Lori's voice on the line, and also someone else's? Did they ever explain that??? I figured he was hallucinating when he SAW her, but the phone calls seemed to be more than hallucinations... :confused:

    As far as we know, just hallucinations, which seemed to stop when he got better.

    If he really wanted arrows, he should go with a regular bow, which he could probably fire at more than twice the rate of that crossbow.

    But I agree that a sword is the best choice of primary weapon (maybe a spear would be better for someone who is clumsy and untrained with a sword, or perhaps a rifle with a bayonet). I'd go with a sawed off shotgun instead of a "pistol" (especially if I could make my own ammo, which should be feasible if there is a supply of gunpowder). And probably some sort of mace with long (at least 2 inch) spikes instead of a knife.

    But it would not be a bad idea when going out as a team (and you should always go with a team) to have one person with a bow (not crossbow) who knows how to use it. Occasionally it comes in handy to quietly shoot at a distance.

    I'm guessing In her mind to decontaminate the bodies so the flu or whatever the bus is would not spread.

    But I've been saying the same thing about the vehicles used. Why use a small SUV like the Tuscon? Why not get a bunch of Toyota Land Cruisers, or Range Rovers, etc... Put snow plow blades on them and use them to mow down walkers that are in your path.

    Granted your gas mileage won't be as good, but there's plenty of gas to siphon out of abandoned cars.

    The prison is located near Nunez, Georgia. Average snowfall is less than an inch per year. Not likely to find too much snow removal equipment nearby.

    Should be enough front-loaders though. Or redneck 4X4s. Just run over them and squash them. If you can squash a skull with a foot....
