    And yet she seems to have been able to figure out pretty quickly in both cases who the good guys and the bad guys are.

    The actor playing the Governor is doing a fabulous job portraying a sociopath. When he degraded Maggie, I wanted to jump through the screen with a katana. That is the result of an effective performance. The guy playing Merle (Murl, Mürl, Meryl) is also doing well but I'm happy to see someone else take him out eventually -- or not. I agree that he can hang around and make lives miserable -- kind of like Shane.

    But I think this is mainly done for the audience, as we can see here on TCF, some people mistake superficial good and comfort for something to look for in a post-apocalyptic world.

    I think it's "little ass-kicker".

    What is this thing called a "commercial" to which you refer?

    Now I know that Michonne does not talk much but after spending 6 months with Andrea she had to realize who these people were (how many groups would have a Rick, Carl, Glen , Maggie, etc) so why wouldn't she let them know that she knew Andrea and that Andrea was in the town?

    Rick is too reluctant to add people to his group. While you have to be careful about who you let in and they have to earn trust, automatically turning people away is not the right approach. They're losing too many people to just turn everyone away. The fewer people you have, the harder it is to defend yourselves.

    Hopefully this can put to rest the immunity/invisibility/camouflage argument. Zombie slaves and walker guts both act as camouflage.

    It's been well established that walkers don't see very well. They are mostly drawn to sound and smell. (The extras' contact lenses even make it hard to see, to enhance the poor vision effect). This is why hiding quietly among dead bodies works.

    So if you have two docile walkers chained to you, chances are that (from a safe enough distance) you look like three blurry walkers to other walkers. Two dead slaves to one living human can mask the smell (again, from a distance) and you're only shuffling along at walker-pace.

    Walker guts do the same thing if you shuffle along and don't act "living." That's why Rick & Glenn shuffled in Atlanta. Again, like camouflage, it bought them time but it wasn't perfect invisibility. Eventually the walkers figured out they were living, just like they did with Michonne at the fence.

    The nitpick I struggle with is how a bite gives you an infection then fatal fever, but zombie-splatter doesn't.

    I'm not getting the Carl hate. I think he's an amazing character this season. That actor has done a terrific job.

    I'm sure of you swallowed the splatter, it would do something, but maybe the flavor would make you regurgitate it before it would do anything. And maybe stomach acids would take care of things, where a bite gets right into the bloodstream.

    Like when Daryl put the knife used to kill a zombie in a prior scene in his mouth when he went after Carol. Yes, he looked dead sexy doing it but the move gave me pause.

    I don't really get the hate either. He has been way better this year than last year. I'm not sure I would say amazing and terrific, but I'd say "much better" and "good". He's an entirely different character this year. No whining. Holding his own. An asset to the group. I'm ok with Carl.

    Could not disagree more. He's a child actor with very limited range....he's obviously the weakest link in an otherwise outstanding cast on a show that's hitting its stride this season.

    No he's not. He's done emotional acting this season that many adult actors can't do. And he's not OVER-acting either. My weak link pick would be T-Dog. Not only can't he act very well, they didn't ever give him much to do (maybe because of that). It was a relief when they killed him off.

    Once again....agree to disagree. There are plenty of folks who agree with me (see "why the Carl hate" comments....)

    I see very little (if any) emotion in his acting. It's been the same expressionless face on him for two years now...

    Good or bad...he's four orders of magnitude better than that little kid on Once Upon a Time. Man, that kid is terrible.

    OK, so what was up with the hermit in the cabin? I can't believe no one has mentioned that yet. Are we to believe he has just been chilling all by himself this whole time? That was weird. :confused:
