    Glad it's back, but this show is really difficult to watch live.
    The freaking commercials during this show are killing me. I can barely tolerate the Walking Dead. The commercials are way scarier. Make them stop!!!

    Ok, this is one of these rare shows where it's still good even if nothing happens. Few shows can say that.

    I wouldn't exactly label the whole supermarket battle as nothing happening.

    1. Did we see Harry Potter boy get bitten or injured at some point?

    2. The "naming the walkers at the gate" scene has me worried that child actors may have a more prominent role this season. I hope not - unless they are good actors. Those kids were not.

    3. So now there are two The Wire alumni on board. Nice! This is the first thing I think I've seen D'Angelo in, since.

    4. The whole time Rick was with the woman, I wasn't sure whether she was really a walker and that he was hallucinating a conversation with her. I'm not sure if that uncertainty was intended, though.

    5. I liked the raining walkers. That was nice.

    6. Not sure what was up with violet the dead pig.

    Related maybe?
    Swine Flu?

    Probably related to the dead boar in the woods as well (or was it a deer? I couldn't tell).

    There was also the dying pig/boar in the woods. Pigs are pretty close to humans genetically, almost at organ transplant levels...perhaps the Zombie Virus is jumping species?

    But the Zombie virus does not kill, so if you are correct, what killed the pig and the boar?

    Maybe it was Daryl's saliva that killed the glasses boy. :D

    But seriously, more likely it was that deer he mentioned Daryl bringing back. If so, I guess more people are likely to get sick.

    I had to suspend belief when the zombies were falling through the roof. The zombies had been walking on the roof for months or years. Then multiple holes in the roof open up just when they are in the store. Unbelievable.

    The first few minutes with the woman in the woods I had that thought that she was a new hybrid zombie - some sort of dead that could still function like a human but was slowly turning zombie. Her face and eyes made me feel like that.

    There must be something going on with the kid getting sick, violet the pig getting sick and the dead boar in the woods. New strain of the virus I guess.

    I liked Carol using story time to teach the kids about the knives. I wonder why it must be kept a secret.

    The kids at the fence in the scene with Carl didn't seem to be giving him much respect for his seniority there.

    Yeah I was thinking the same thing with the woman in the woods at one point then also thought she might be bringing him back to her people who are now cannibals with her talk about not being able to come back from some things.

    I think the thing with Carol and the kids is you heard Rick talk about doing normal kid things like reading and hanging with the other kids, I don't think he wants them learning to fight right now.

    Swine flu seems a good guess on the pigs but you would think Rick would be sick first since he has the most contact with the pigs.

    They did make a big deal of showing Darryl licking his fingers.

    Solid start to the season. I could have done with less blood and guts in the supermarket, but I guess that's the only reason some people tune in.

    How would cannibalism even work, now? You'd be eating walkers.

    I thought about the woefully lack of sanitation and the potential for diseases when Rich splashed his face with the standing water. The figure licking thing gave me pause but not as much.

    Just to be clear, the smiley meant I was joking. If that really turns out to be the case, it would be ridiculous, even by the standards of this show.

    The show also seemed to draw attention to the one fence zombie with bloody eyes - he was shown several times. I didn't think much of it while watching, but looking back I bet that wasn't just an arbitrary thing. I bet we're supposed to conclude that he died of the same thing that we saw killed the Harry Potter kid - some sort of viral hemorrhagic fever.

    Man, if they have to deal with an Ebola outbreak on top of the zombie apocalypse, that would suck for them pretty hard.

    The roof was weakened by the huge helicopter that crashed upon it. So, it happened to cave in at the right time.:D

    Just as long as you did not have to suspend your disbelief. If you had to do that, then there would be real trouble. You might believe anything! (would you believe flammable and inflammable mean the same thing?) :D

    They were pretty dispersed, initially. Once they started hearing the noise from below, they all moved onto the rotted area en masse (which would explain the roof caving in overall, but not them falling through individual holes. Yeah, I've got nothing). It was a cool scene, though.

    The kid did make a point of thanking Daryl for the deer he killed the previous day. Perhaps the deer meat was infected somehow? Maybe something in the food chain nearby the prison?
