    I really like the stories for Michonne and Carl in this episode. Both started out feeling like they could do fine on their own but realizing throughout the episode that they needed the others.

    I was pretty powerful to see Michonne break down a little when she saw Rick and Carl. Probably the first emotion other than anger we have seen from her.

    I'm struck by how beautiful Danai Gurira is and it's always fun seeing Aldis Hodge in stuff.

    Did we know before this that Michonne had a child? or was that just a fantasy dream type thing.

    I did love seeing her create her Walking dead dogs and using them again. It really is a good way to not get eaten.

    I don't think we knew for sure, but didn't she have a strong reaction when she held baby Judith that led us to think she might have had a baby at one time?

    I'm confused about the two men we see in the dream sequence. One is her boyfriend....who was the other? And did they go on to be her two original pets? Is that what we are to assume from the severed arms?

    Don't think so but I figured it with her emotional breakdown holding Judith.


    Yep. Also, I think she alluded to it once.

    That all seems reasonable, but we'll just have to see when and if they reveal more.

    I know I say this a lot, but Talking Dead is great with Nicetero (spelling?) on it...otherwise it is a complete waste of time.

    Glad Carl got a taste of what life would be like without his dad!

    She did have a strong reaction holding Judith. One of the few/only ones we had seen so far. I remembered that but wasn't sure if she actually stated anything.

    The two men - I figured either one or both her brothers. Maybe one a brother and one a friend.

    I wonder how she figured out to make the "pets" in the first place I also wonder thru the last couple seasons why the group doesn't use the trick Rick used with Glenn in season one. Smearing the blood of a walker all over themselves to get past them.

    Back to the original two walker pets....didn't she at one time tell Andrea something like "They were barely human when they were alive"......or something similar?

    For some reason I thought they were maybe her brothers.

    I hope they aren't both her brothers, didn't one of them call her his lover?

    Well those guys could be brothers and one was dating Michonne

    Something like that is the vibe I got. Maybe all 3 were friends (no relation for any of them) and Michonne started dating one of them.

    Yeah...I certainly remember her saying that. At the time, I took it as they had done something very terrible to her. Interesting that we know now it was a lover and a friend.

    Carl is getting a little less annoying but I have to admit I was kinda hoping that those 3 Zs would kill him.

    Really glad to see that they've decided to make Michonne a real human being. She's always been one of my favorites, but I hated that she was soo one dimensional. I really enjoyed the dream/flashback.

    Looks like another good season ahead.

    So from the one guys speech are we to assume he gave up on life and didn't want to see his kid grow up in this world? and he ended him then Michonne ended them?

    Man eating 112 oz of chocolate pudding after not eating any type of dairy in forever must wreak havoc on your digestive system, moments like that must make you miss indoor plumbing.

    Also I didn't get the "it's for you" line. Was it just a joke or was there more subtext to it?
