    My question is: Would Rick have done the same thing if Caroll hadn't pushed him on the subject?

    That smile of hers was the biggest (and maybe the ONLY) smile I've seen on her...:D

    It's...
    I thought the whole trip was his way of getting her alone for an extended period of time so that he could gauge her mental state and reasoning.

    I don't read the comic book, so I don't know who Tyreese is in that world.
    When he first showed up, people were excited to see him and I assumed it was because he was a bad-ass walker killer or maybe just a helluva great guy, or even both. I don't see him as being likable in any way at all and any scene he is in I just can't enjoy simply because of his presence. I just don't like him.

    If I were Carol, I'd just drive right straight back to the prison.
    I kind of wanted Daryl to toss the bottle of booze into the crowd of walkers below and then push the guy off the roof.

    Yeah, I was pretty sure he was going to be chest-bumped off the roof by Daryl. Feinting for his weapon should have sealed his fate.

    Totally agree about Tyreese! (I don't read the comics either).

    Of course I felt the same way about Michone for a long time.

    That's my take also, especially after re-watching the opening scene.

    Yes, I think that he did not bring up the subject with her because his mind already was made up. The whole point of the expedition was (1) to get her far from the prison; and (2) to find and furnish a "to-go" car for her. She just incorrectly assumed that the car was going to be driven back to the prison, but that was never Rick's plan.

    I didn't really understand what they were pulling at when the walkers appeared. Was that to get the minivan that they finally used out of the undergrowth? Not sure the battery would have been the only problem with a vehicle that was overgrown like that.

    The surviving kid they found (male) seemed sketchy to me.

    I was excited to see the actor who plays Tyrese due to the role he played on The Wire. I have to agree that his character on this show is tiring.

    We know the girl is dead, but did we ever see that kid being gone, or just assuming?

    That was pretty hoky -- it's like that was the only door into the gas station?


    On the Talking Dead, they said it's about 18 months into the timeline, so a car sitting for 18 months with kudzu growing on it -- totally believable that only the battery went dead. Maybe the tires would need some air. But I've started cars sitting for years with nothing but a jumpstart.

    Carol would be nuts to come back to the prison after seeing what Tyrese did to Rick just talking about finding out who did it.

    Summed it all up for me.

    Carol should have involved the council before acting -- in vain. She did too many things in secret -- teaching children knifing skills -- a good thing but shouldn't have done it in secret.

    Rick did the SAME thing. Banishing her is something the GROUP could have decided. Ty would have been mad but I don't think Ty would have killed her. He isn't about killing women -- just protecting them. Rick used Ty as an excuse to get rid of Carol who is a loose cannon (like Ty) and a threat to his authority. Rick should have brought her back and locked her in a cell. I think Ty would have accepted the punishment offered by the group.

    I hope she hooks up with the hippie dude and starts a new group. She has skills.

    Daryl is going to freak out because I think he picked up that rock to present to Carol.

    The alcoholic medic and Ty are both working my nerves.

    Glad to see Michonne smiling instead of grimacing throughout the episode. The actress is actually very pretty.

    I meant surviving the walkers up to the point they were found in the house, not by the end of this episode. :)

    I don't even know what kudzu is. Looked sort of like the running ivy I have on the side of my house. You know, the stuff that I can easily trim with my battery powered hedge trimmer. :D

    Yeah 18 months is not a big deal (maybe it is for a circa 1990s Chrysler product minivan), but given the labor to get into the garage, I was assuming it was covered for much longer than that. I stopped watching Talking Dead after I realized it was a waste of a half hour.

    So what happened to the thousands of walkers they saw last time? They didn't even seem to be watchful at all, that they could be around every corner.

    Did they say that none of the sick had died yet? But the first guy died within a few hours of showing symptoms. Now they're living for days, which makes what Carol did seem worse since they seem to have a chance of surviving.

    I didn't either and I thought it was a pretty amazing turn of events - the idea that they might banish one of the group who have been there since the beginning is pretty major - since this is a show where we have lost so so many to zombie deaths.

    I don't agree with the decision myself but it will be interesting to see how this plays out.
