    Isn't he surrounded by empty houses? You get one flush in each one, so you can use each bathroom twice :)

    We actually saw her smile a few times in the first half of this season, so she's shown more emotion (outside anger) this season than ever before...

    Regarding who the original "pets" are...I usually don't watch Talking Dead, but I did last night and
    I believe they confirmed that Michonne's two original "pets" were her lover and his friend...
    And I think a boy's plumbing can better handle 100+ oz of pudding that an older man...

    I think Michonne has bonded with Carl more than most of the others. There was an earlier episode where the two of them and Rick went into a town to check something out. Michonne went into a building crawling with walkers to get Carl something he wanted (was it the family picture Rick, Lori and Carl?)

    My thought was just who HAS a 112 oz can of pudding in their house? That seems the kind of thing you see at a school or church.

    Actually those wouldn't be a bad place to scavenge.

    Were they coming into a town? The houses looked like the suburbs of a small town with Main street and such further up the road.

    Whoever it was they didn't' want anyone else to have it because they put it way up on top of the kitchen cabinets. That would be interesting to see if sales of giant cans of pudding increase at Costco in the next few days.

    True. Maybe the previous occupants of the house had scavenged the pudding from some such place and brought it back to the house. They never got a chance to eat it before they.......?

    That is what made me think she knew the two guys. I didn't think they were her brothers though.

    Yes, it was the "Clear" episode when Carl shot Morgan.

    I'm honestly not sure why I thought that. :confused: After seeing this episode, my assumption was clearly wrong.

    Now I'm very interested in hearing the rest of the story. This was her boyfriend and father of her child. What in the world did he do that would cause her to say that he deserved what he got? Did it have something to do with the child?

    I'm sure they will explore that story line farther into the season and I will be looking forward to getting the answers. She has become my favorite character and I'll be glad to get a little of her backstory.

    I don't know, you all seem to be rather forgiving of this episode and the continuation of the horrible Carl story line and stupidity. Where was he leading the two Walkers? Why didn't he look behind him?

    Essentially all that for Rick to admit Carl is now a man? They could have made that leap in 10 minutes, and then spent the rest of the time exploring Michonne's story line, which was far more interesting. But no, just more Carl ineptitude.

    What a sad way to limp back into the 2nd part of the season.

    I was yelling at the TV when Carl was leading the walkers, while walking backwards, not watching where he was going. Common Carl, you know the walkers are there, they are going to chase after you while you are in their sight until they get you and you can move faster than them by walking quickly or jogging. They aren't going to try and flank you or go some other route. Turn the heck around and watch where you're going.....

    I've been a big Carl supporter all along but I hope there's not another 30 minute Carlcentric segment any time soon. I ffwd through a good bit of Michonne and Carl's Excellent Adventures when they were just wandering.

    Carl must have gotten the "watch where you're going" gene from Lori.

    He WAS continually looking back as often as he could while leading the walkers (have you ever tried walking backwards for a long time?); I specifically noted how often he WAS checking behind him. However, how a walker could "sneak" up on him without him seeing it during one of his periodic "backward checks" is beyond me...

    Yeah, he was looking behind pretty constantly, so I'm not sure what you guys were watching. He probably should have turned around and walked forward while occasionally looking backward to make sure they were following him, but either way he's going to be walking/not looking for at least a bit.

    They made it "plausible" (barely) that a walker could still sneak up on him by having him change direction and head into the wooded area, and have the walker come out of some brush.

    Right. That was an improvement over many of the "walker magically appears" scenes they have done in the past.

    But I agree with others that Carl was unbelievably stupid. He should have been jogging away from them quickly, then occasionally stopping and looking back to let them catch up. And certainly not approached any blind corners, risking getting surrounded.

    He was having too much fun taunting the Walkers. :D

    In the world he lives in, though, it really doesn't matter how much he looks around. Time and time again, we've seen zombies appear out of nowhere to attack Our Heroes, even when a long shot a moment earlier showed nothing around. If it's time for them to be attacked, no amount of vigilance will protect them. ;)

    If I were on this show and they suddenly went from a long shot of me in the middle of an empty field to a close-up, I'd be terrified of teleporting zombies.
