    Why nitpick over this? She was injured and fighting to stay conscious. She could have forgotten or not been thinking about that she had zombie guts all over her at that moment, and was therefore surprised that the walkers didn't immediately sniff her out.

    And again, with her pet zombies she never needed to experiment with smearing herself in zombie intestines. Maybe she just never had reason to find out that zombies didn't have to be "live" to mask living human scent from other zombies.

    She was clearly surprised, so for whatever reason, she didn't know.

    I was pretty sure she has had a walker with her since everything started until she killed the two before they were picked up at the helicopter crash site.

    Why would they waste time letting the audience know about the blood "scent" again? We already know this so I don't see the benefit of having Michonne find out this way. What is the big deal about her learning this? I think she is immune.

    If she is immune, why was the zombie whose guts she spilled trying to attack her?

    What way was she supposed to find out? From the zombie survival guide at the local library?

    After the group of walkers passed by her, she clearly looked down at her clothes and all of the blood & guts on them. It was obviously an "ah huh!" moment for her. Her learning this allows her to travel freely again just like she could when she had the two walkers on the chains.

    So now she'll be the chick with zombie guts on her all the time instead of pet walkers.

    I am still on team governor. Sure he runs a tight ship but in a Zombie Apocalypse it's the survival of the fittest. Ayn Rand would be proud. The governor is sipping wine and making sweet love while the bleeding heart Rick is talking to dead people on a dead phone.

    At this point the governor's system is working best.

    LOL - "waste time"? The whole scene was like twenty seconds long. It's not like the spent an entire episode on it... Such a crazy thing to nitpick about, but we all have our things I guess.

    That's true, but now that Team Governor kidnapped Glen and Maggie, I'm guessing they're about to crossover into "villain" territory any minute now. I've been wondering how the groups would connect and I have to say, I love the way it happened. Michonne escaping Merl and stumbling upon Glen and Maggie, then Merl stumbling on them and taking them hostage while Michonne makes her way to the prison. I alsmot don't even want to watch the next few episodes out of fear of what's gonna happen once these groups go head to head. I think it's cool the way they used Glen and Maggie as the starting off point instead of something overly obvious, like Merl tracking Michonne to the prison and seeing Daryl or something.

    I think it was weird that he brought them back to Woodbury instead of just making them take him to Daryl, though... but this way's a lot more dramatic so I'll take it.

    I was agreeing with you. :) In either Herschel or the governor's situation I might try to keep my zombie family around as long as possible. I don't think the daughter in a straight jacket is a bad thing. It shows me he has hope someone he loves can someday be back to normal again.

    My biggest question from this episode was why Merle stabbed the decapitated head in the eye. Even if it comes back, how much damage can a disembodied head do?

    Right, because murdering National Guard units in cold blood is so heroic.

    That, and you just don't want to leave an animate zombie head lying around in the weeds. Ankle bites.

    Maggie and Glen refused to take him to Darryl and they would have laid down their lives before sacrificing the safety and resources of their group by allowing Merle to know where they were located. So Merle's only choices were kill them and have nothing to take to the Gov. or keep them alive as a present for the Gov. and torture them for info.

    The live Walkers she was using as pack animals never did keep mask her human scent and keep other Walkers away. It is only the guts of dead Walkers that is now disguising her.

    Don't agree at all. Walkers are already dead. And the slaves did help her move about walkers without being detected, so it did work.

    Sorry, was that a spoiler?
