    Yeah, this pretty much describes most experiences I've seen with someone firing a machine gun not knowing what they are doing: the treetops got trimmed.

    Good point but I wouldn't do something stupid and then state that I'm smarter than someone else. I'd be too embarrassed.

    How long since the outbreak started? This could be house number 20,000 they have occupied and they stopped checking under beds at house 5,000. ;)

    My first thought was that Eugene shot up the truck on purpose because he really didn't want to go to DC.

    Gotta give the producers credit for not having the truck go up in a giant ball of fire when the fuel tank was shot.

    1. Glenn should have shot the scientist in the head the moment he uttered the words "it's classified".

    2. Glenn should have also mentioned that the CDC didn't know the cure, so why would he (Glenn) believe him?

    seriously...it's the middle of zombie world and someone says "it's classified"?!

    Unless he had the gun laid on it's side trying to figure out how to work it, find a safety, load a magazine, etc.

    Love how Michael Cudlitz character is the MAN, till Glenn comes along and cuts him off at the cojones!

    That house has the best sound proofing EVER! My wife watched the scene where Rick fights the guy on the toilet and asked "why was the lid down?".

    As for the search for sanctuary? What else are you going to do with a show like this? Wandering around ending zombies will get boring quick, you need some hope on the horizon...which will fail miserably again and again till the show either wraps up or is canceled.

    Somewhat on topic fun read if you haven't already seen it-

    That was my second thought because I think he is full of ish. If this is the case, he has figured out a way to get commando protection during the ZA.

    I don't think he did at the time he fired. Not going to go back and check but that's how I remember it.

    Even so, if that's what did happen then Beryl's point is even more appropriate. Had the truck not been exactly where it was he would have likely shot one of living. Stupid is as stupid does. There's no shame in running from Zs.

    He had plenty of time to jump in the truck and let the others fend for themselves or alert them after he was in the truck.

    Yes, they are very good points. Especially since they're all 100% true and accurate. :p

    Right. And that's why he was stupid for standing there and putzing with a weapon he didn't know how to use and then ended up disabling the truck.

    (Perhaps he really didn't want to go to DC, but I can't imagine he'd (him specifically) would rather be walking.)

    Exactly what Tyrese told that little girl.

    My 2 thoughts when Abraham claimed that Eugene is the one guy who could save the world were --

    "He has watched and believed too many SyFy movies"
    and
    "That guy is no Brad Pitt."

    I'm assuming it's not a simple thing that Eugene just KNOWS, but rather a method of "healing" it. At least I hope, otherwise just tell everyone and anyone the secret!

    Oh really. That would just shorten the series by about 3 seasons! :)

    Yeah, that's why I'm saying it's more of an internal knowledge vs "everyone at a lot of lemons and you be cured" sort of thing.

    Give him time in a lab with stuff and he might be able to do it.

    Or he is just a crazy guy and convinced Abraham that he is really smart so he will keep him alive?
