    The guy on the floor was just knocked out, I think they even made a point to show him snoring.

    I thought the guy that turned was the guy that Rick killed in the bathroom, and the timing of the turn/distraction was a little TOO perfect.

    Did anyone else think Rosita looked like Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider ?

    Who was the actor on the porch ? I've seen him in other stuff. I wonder if we will see more of him and his group ?

    The actor on the porch was Jeff Kober who plays Hale on Sons of Anarchy.

    Yeah, and he's a high-enough profile guy that I doubt they hired him just for that scene.

    See, that's what I mean. Not only do we have the prison group all split up, now we have two NEW groups (the army guy et al, and the nasties in the house). Maybe they'll both be short lived plots, but seriously, there is so much more they could do with the existing cast without spreading the plots so thin there's no more plot, just "situation" drama.


    "I am Legend" spoiler:
    Didn't "I am Legend" also end with everyone (non-zombie) meeting up at a walled "Sanctuary" type place? Couldn't TWD writers do better than just copy that story line? Guess not.

    Who said they are ending the show at a walled Sanctuary??
    And isn't that basically a part of EVERY zombie movie? 28 days later? Seems pretty standard and fine with me, and who knows what it will be like when they where they are going soon.

    I'm 99.9% certain that his eyes were closed, because it stood out to me since I thought the guy was dead, but I was confused at how he just shut his eyes all of the sudden and I was thinking to myself that people don't always die with their eyes closed.

    It did not really cross my mind that he was just knocked out until I read it in this thread. I kept wondering why he didn't turn...guess that was the reason. :eek:

    I didn't mean to imply they're ending the show there.. it's just an extremely similar and familiar plot device.... just seems lazy to me.

    Un-spoilering.

    I'll just say that it's the heart of every zombie movie/story to have different "Sanctuary" places. Like Woodbury for example.

    So 0 problem if they are heading towards what they THINK is another one.

    I agree the one guy was just knocked out and it was the bathroom guy who turned...which is why Rick made sure and opened the bathroom door so he could get out.

    Thats my biggest problem with this show, the complete lack of common sense in the decision making of the characters.

    That being said, I thought this was an excellent episode with the tension in the house with Rick hiding under the bed. More of this and less of the brooding episodes would be welcomed.

    That scene really choked me up-- in particular because the kid's name on the wall (Mae Mae) was the nickname we call our daughter and the letters were EXACTLY the same ones we have on her wall. Creepy indeed.

    True, they fit that mold. Still, I can't imagine they'd still be alive this long after the ZA if that behavior persisted. At the very least they'd just go ahead and put an ice pick in his ear once he hit the ground.

    As long as it's not Woodbury II. Mild comics spoiler:
    One nice thing about the comics series is that over its 120 and counting issues, they have stumbled across a number of survivor communities, and each has had its own strengths and weaknesses.

    "I think I'll hide under the bed because......NO ONE EVER LOOKS THERE" -- Really?! You're searching a house and you don't think to look under a bed? Geez....

    Other than that I liked this ep...definitely the reveal that, apparently, someone knows how to "fix" the ZA....

    Well if you are looking for zombies to clear a room, I wouldn't look under the bed most likely But every closet and behind every door, yup!

    But they clearly stated they knew some girl/woman had been there because of the shirt they found. They obviously knew other survivors had been/were there...
