    And then later they show how they prison actually has running water (the shower). I wonder if the standing water had really been standing for very long.

    Okay so the very FIRST thing that ran thru my head when looking at poor sick Violet was isn't it GREAT they have a farm veterinarian there!!!! The old guy. The guy that didn't know much about humans but saved Carl (and who else). I was surprised that he didn't say something about the pig being sick and it could be this or that or the other thing.

    Huh? Does a barrel full of water connected by a pump and hose to a shower head count as running water? :confused:

    Better than it just sitting outside collecting germs and mold and such. I figured the water was coming from rain barrels outside and into the barrels inside. Okay maybe we didn't see that setup, but it would make sense. :confused:

    And WHY keep teaching the kids a secret? If they have a "council" that can tell Rick to carry a gun, why can't the "council" tell him they want to teach the children basic survival that they will need as they grow up.

    And Daryl licked his hands, shook the sick kids hand and then went on. Maybe Daryl is going to get sick next.

    It was slightly amusing to watch the crew out there punching holes in the walkers heads. Like slaughtering lambs - except not edible. Maybe if they had longer poles they could get a couple in one stick.

    They did a good job of showing us what had become of all the characters over the year and I was impressed with the garden and farm that they were able to build.

    Well Rick isn't a walker yet as he is still living so if she was bringing him back to her group so they could eat him that would make them cannibals and that is what I was thinking might have been happening.

    Very good observation and I totally missed that but looking back it does look like a connection. I can't wait for next week!

    I don't know where they are getting their water, unless there is a well nearby that they use to haul water to the barrels. Obviously it is not just rainwater that happens to fall into the barrels -- most places only get 30 - 50 inches of rainfall per year. I suppose if the roof has gutters, they could collect all of the rain that hits the roof into barrels.

    They also showed the woman that was killing them with blood over her neck, apron and gloves and then she hugged the guy that didn't want to do that work - I was waiting to see a smear on his clean white shirt (well not white exactly but light colored). Another way it could spread.

    stuff happened, but the story didn't really move along very much. That's what I meant by that.


    I was thinking this last night - they really need a buddy system. Rick going off on his own was stupid. Harry Potter going off on his own wasn't good either.

    If it's just from a barrel or two they can't be showering all that much. Hauling water in there every couple days would be a pain in the butt. Wonder if they ran into a water truck or got water from the water heaters in houses or the prison.

    Not much happened, but it did do some much needed set up of what had happened in the past with the two groups merging.

    For those saying that not much happened to move the story I am confused at what you want. A conclusion to this show or a continuing awesome journey with great side stories and nice, but paced, revelations in the overall story arc. For me I like the latter. I would like this show to have twenty seasons. This isn't like some shows were you want to know what is going on and be fed a conclusion, this is a show about people surviving in a horrible situation and how society would handle a zombie outbreak.

    I would love some flashbacks showing the character pre-outbreak ala Lost and Revolution.

    It seems most likely that it's some kind of pig-to-human thing. After Poindexter died and came back his eyes looked like that, too.

    The whole 'woman in the woods' thing WAS kind of strange. I think I need to watch some of it again, as I feel like I might have missed something.

    Amazing how all those walkers AND an entire helicopter managed to be on that, thin as paper, roof all that time until the people were inside.

    Can't believe they killed Phineas. Hope Ferb comes to avenge his brother's death!

    Why would you watch it live? i start watching around 20 or 3 minutes after it starts so I can skip over the commercials. Otherwise I've wasted over twenty minutes watching commercials.

    I do wish it had been a two hour premiere, especially after the last scene.

    Come on. As soon as they showed the helicopter on the roof with the walkers, you had to know that it was going to collapse while they were scavanging in the store.

    I don't see what the big deal. Helicopter crash lands destroying seal in roof.
    Roof rots after a couple of seasons. Walkers are in somewhat frozen position until they are stimulated by some noise and then they all move to the noise and the roof starts to go.

    The question I am beginning to wonder is do the walkers no longer decay. How long are they viable?

    I know you were joking, but I don't think the show did that for no reason. It was too deliberate. Obviously there's some kind of disease and they gave us a bunch of clues and possible ways it was transmitted and some things that were possibly misdirection and that was just one of them.

    Did I imagine it or wasn't there a hose coming out the ride side of the barrel in the scene outside with Rick?
