    I think that is it exactly. He was either:

    A) A crazy person. Nothing else to add to that. He would have to have been crazy to not recognize the threat outside his door

    B) Someone so cut off from society he had no idea the **** had hit the fan in the rest of the world so he was unaware of the greater danger, therefore so the only threat was Rick and Crew

    This is what I thought. I was surprised they didn't want to explore that a little more. Should we assume there are others like him? He threatened to call the police. He obviously had no idea what the world had become.

    I like Carl a lot more this season. It might have a little to do with the fact that he put a bullet in Lori.

    I don't think Michonne wants to be alone. She knows she can't make it on her own. She almost died this time around. She needs to find a group that she can trust.

    Are they going to give Oscar (is that his name?) any lines? They are treating him just like T-Dog!

    Totally agree. Of course she knows who they are and where Andrea is. She's acting very foolish to alienate herself from this group. Pretty stupid. Where does she expect to get to on her own?

    And Oscar and T-dog? Looks like they replaced the token non-speaking huge black guy with an identical non-speaking huge black guy.

    Maybe huge black guys just don't talk in that universe.

    Did he have a dead dog in that cabin? If so, I vote crazy.

    This doesn't bother me too much. Getting bit by something is not the same thing at all as eating it, or even ingesting its blood. There are LOTS AND LOTS of bacteria and germs that live in the mouth and teeth that you would not necessarily come into contact with by eating something. Plus, has been mentioned, ingesting through the stomach is not the same at all as getting bit/injection directly into the blood stream and tissue. I'm not saying I would be so cavalier but, for a TV show, there's enough plausible deniability there for me to give them a pass on this.

    Yes, a dead dog. Crazy for sure. However, it beggars belief that even a crazy person could survive by himself that long without some clue about zombies and what to do and not to do around them.

    Also, they were supposed to be just a mile away from Woodbury: are we to believe he could be living so close to the Governor and none of the Governor's folks have ever come across him? Weird.

    However, I suspect that's the last we'll hear about that guy.

    If everyone who had a speck of zombie splatter on them died and turned, there wouldn't be any people left, and hence, no show.

    I wonder how much Andrea told her about them, and if she thinks that they left her behind the same as Merle?

    If a week or 2 had passed, he might be sane, but no way he was that close to the city with all the lights and noise and hadn't seen any zombies. Maybe he
    was someone they threw out just lately cause he's crazy and no use to them? Or they're giving him supplies and watching over him because he is of some use to them, although I can't think for what. There was a big lake there--maybe he stays on the water most of the time. Have we established if these zombies can swim or walk through water?

    Didn't she specifically talk about being abandoned, in somewhat bitter terms, in her early conversations with Michonne?

    Much more than a mile away. The Gov/Mirle said that the prison was "deep in the red zone" and Rik, etc al had to drive there, and they stopped a mile away as per Michoone's recommendation.

    I have no basis in fact, but I'd guess between 7 and 10 miles away.

    edit: Nevermind. you're talking about the cabin.

    I was really hoping for some Michonne backstory with her passing out, but no joy.

    Our family has taken to just calling Oscar "Two-Dog"; not sure why the bothered. It would be funny for them to do a Beerfest "Landfill"/"Landfill 2" reference.

    I think Merle made a comment about them leaving her behind. I'm not sure Andrea really feels that way though.

    I never really understood why they pick and choose who they search for. They easily could have gone back the next day to see if Andrea was still alive. The quest to save Merle was MUCH more dangerous. Even the mission to save Maggie and Glen is more dangerous than it would have been to save Andrea. Damn, these people suck.

    I just realized I'm still on the governor's side. :)

    Pretty sure they consider her dead, just because it was highly unlikely she would make it out of that scenario (kind of like they did with Carol). Merle was chained up on a "secured" roof, more likely to be there when they got back...plus his brother really pushed for it. Maggie and Glenn, they know where they are and that living people took them, chances are they are alive and I'm sure her father had some say in it.

    So I guess, just make sure you have a relative still in the group. Then they'll never give up.

    I guess I really should have specified "disemboweled zombie guts spilling all over someone with a fresh bullet wound" instead of just saying splattered.

    I didn't get the guy in the cabin. There were walkers EVERYWHERE yet he has no clue? That was just odd. I'm wondering if they cut part of that scene to make time or what...

    Carl is going to be a problem. Kids grow up..remember Walt on Lost? He got killed off because he hit a nice growth spurt. I was wondering last night if Carl is wearing a novelty Sheriff's hat now to try and hide his growth.

    And yes..my wife made the same comment about the KFC commercial. Funny.

    I think the walkers followed our people to the cabin.

    I also think the guy in the cabin would have no clue about anything, even if he had a full set of the Clue Encyclopedia on hand. He was pretty clearly insane and delusional. I think he was just lucky that the walkers hadn't found him yet.

    You do what you have to in this world of The Walking Dead................but geez, you break into a guys house, try and gain his trust, run him through with a sword, the push him out the front door a zombie snack so you can sneak out the back way.......I thought that was the worst thing anyone has done on the show so far.

    That bothered me until I re-watched that scene. He needed to SHUT UP and didn't. Then, he was opening the door which would have let in the walkers and killed everyone. Yes, knocking in the head would have been better. It was a sad unavoidable situation which resulted in a walker feast.

    Plus Michonne was on point (cough), which resulted in a kinder, gentler solution not being contemplated.

    I can't even describe how annoyed I was that she didn't tell them about Andrea, or that Daryl's brother is the guy that took Glen and Maggie. After the way last week ended, I was sure she would go in there and lay everything out for them. I thought this episode was *excellent* but that type of "characters not sharing incredibly critical information" is one of my biggest TV writing pet peeves. Some of the best shows have done it and those were always some of the weakest links of those shows.

    The only way it's possible that she doesn't know who they are is if Andrea didn't tell her about them in the EIGHT MONTHS they were on the road together, which I just can't believe. But that's the only way her not telling them about Andrea and Merle makes sense. To me the only reason they did it was to make it more dramatic once they do get into the town, but that's weak, and especially weak for this show which is consistently above and beyond what other shows try to get away with. So we'll see!

    I don't think that's true--the farm was *completely* overrun by walkers when they fled. I think saying they could have just popped back over the next day is a little judgmental, lol. I do think they should have gone back at SOME point, but I also see their logic which at that point was that Andrea was by herself on a farm overloaded with zombies, so risking to go back (and fight the hundreds of zombies?) for someone most likely dead wasn't smart at that time. of course none of this matters if you're Andrea.

    lol... I think the difference now is that the group has been on the run together for eight months--they're WAY more solid than they were previously. seasons 1 and 2 took place over a few weeks (maybe a month or two?) and even then the group was still forming. But the group that ended up in the prison was a solid unit after that amount of time together. So related or not, they're all a unit. You could see how relieved Rick was when he found out Carol was alive...

    Yeah it was dark for sure but they had absolutely no choice. It was "kill this guy or he's gonna let them in" and then "well this guy's already dead so let's use him as a diversion while we get away with our lives". If you look at the situation, it's pure "kill or be killed", there's no other way around it.


    The show did an awesome job with the Glen and Maggie scenes--both making your skin crawl for two completely different reasons. The actors did a great job because I was genuinely afraid for their safety and watching their ordeal just made me hate Merle and the Guv even more. Wondering if one of them would be killed be the end of the episode made me realize that I love the core cast now and don't want anyone else to die, lol. Except Beth and the two prison guys because seriously who cares.... but everyone else needs to live.

    I 100% want Merle to die though, and I hope Glen gets to do it.
