    I was disappointed that neither Herschel, nor Maggie seemed even remotely upset about losing someone who has been with them since almost the beginning. Carol is one of the few remaining originals and her character deserved more acknowledgement. Which does suggest IMO that she will be back. Or just lazy writing. I'm hoping the former!

    Well, duh she's going to be back! :D

    As for their lack of being upset, I think the point the writers are trying to make (and not doing a very good job) is that Carol murdered two of their own. By Carol's standards, Glenn, Herschel, Creepy Child, and everybody else in the sick ward would now be dead. Because that's what we do with sick people when we're Carol.

    Carol really has turned into something of a monster. The mystery, given that the writers have clearly set her up for that, is that everybody isn't more upset with what she did.

    Neither Herschel nor Maggie were originals.

    Agreed.

    As long as the walkers are on the outside of the fence, there's no reason to waste all of your ammo shooting at them. As others have said, ammo has to be a somewhat scarce resource at this point.

    But really, they should have done a better job of shoring up the fence. And they should have been able to spread out the herd somewhat using noise and other distractions, to where they could take them out more readily. They let the horde build up far too much.

    I was totally bored by the governor last season and wasn't happy he is being brought back so soon - :thumbsdown:

    On an did anybody else see that? moment
    - anyone else notice that in the "previously on" footage they showed Carol dragging the body out -
    they showed that moment before after she turned the corner without revealing who was doing the dragging.

    I would think that they could have looted more ammo from Woodbury than they could ever need.

    Good point. They had a lot of supplies there. I'd think they'd have antibiotics and such as well. They even had a female doctor that must've gotten killed since I've not seen her.

    Regarding Carol - I find her fascinating and agree that she has become a monster. I'm glad they added this to her otherwise boring (but endearing) character. I'm interested in how she and Daryl will play out. I think he was affected by the empathy she once showed him which, given his upbringing, must have been refreshing.

    I would imagine that if Woodbury had ammo or any other supplies they could take, they most certainly would have taken it.

    Yeah, the guns and ammo out in the open seemed like a real weird storage situation, and as we've said in other episode threads, I don't know why they haven't simply circled the wagons around the perimeter, driving dragging or otherwise parking vehicles around the fence and setting up a perimeter system like the one used at Woodbury.

    I can see this for the most part, in normal walker times, but these walkers weren't just all around the perimeter like they used to be, they were up against the fence in one spot and in an already weakened spot. It was an oddity that should have been handled differently. like with a lot of ammo.

    Whoever built the prison should have dug the fence post holes much deeper than the apparent 6 inches.

    If you want a 12 foot tall fence, the depth for the fence posts need to go 1/3 of the height, or 4 feet deep.

    If your fence is 20 feet high, then the posts need to go to a depth of about 7 feet.

    The only parts breaking in the zombie world would be, literally, the "weak link in the chain" link where it attaches to the fence posts.

    That's why I said "almost since the beginning." I only said Carol was an original

    That's why I did not say that you said they were originals. I only said that Herschel and Maggie were not originals. ;)

    Not to mention they'd be set in concrete.

    I'd imagine a prison fence has much different depth requirements so prisoners can't tunnel their way out like every prison movie ever.

    My money's still on the crazy child for feeding the rats to the walkers.

    Love Herschel's "put down the Bible, pick up the shotgun" moment. :)

    I disagree! I think the intent is to show us how desensitized everyone has become to the loss of a close friend/loved one. Pragmatism rules supreme and emotions are really kept in check "for the sake of the tribe".

    I'm hoping the sickness is done. Their "lockdown" procedures still frustrate me. That just could have been handled so much better.

    Well, since Hersh was the one who kept holding out hope that it'll all be ok and a lot of the "procedure" was his doing. This should be an eye opener.

    But Hersh is an idiot at times, so..

    In the cell, door shut, unless you NEED to be out.

    If you can't get up, you get tied down.

    Does anyone remember that Herschel also kept a load of Walkers in his barn? for months?

    He is not the brightest bulb when it comes to some things, but he is very good with medical.
