Now THERE'S an idea for a new Z show....
I still keep waiting for them to make a break for the GA coast and find a boat to sail/row/motor them out to an island where they could quickly eradicate all of the walkers and then live in peace.
But then they would find a hatch...
Not a chance. Rick is too important of a character to go out in such a stupid way. Therefore, there was no tension in any of those scenes for me because I knew Rick was going to be just fine.
I realize everyone is saying that it's been confirmed that the two original "pets" were these two guys we saw in this episode, but I don't remember her original pets being black. Am I just not remembering right?
Edit: I can't find a good still from the actual show, but here is a EW cover that seems to indicate I am wrong:
I remember that her original pets were definitely black. I'm certain they weren't the same actors as were shown last night, but you wouldn't expect them to do that.
My family got those big cans periodically.
He was leading them away from his passed out father and their "secure" housing, knowing when he shot them that the noise would draw any others near by. You'll recall when he came out from where he killed the 3 he looked up and down the street to see if any more were attracted to the shots he fired.
It was actually decent strategic forethought on his part to do so.
My mother had big cans.
Good strategy, but terrible tactics.
Yeah, Carl was often dumb in this episode but so was I at his age and so was everybody else.
I enjoyed the short scene of him sitting on the roof eating from the big can o' puddin' while the walker's arm groped for him out the window.
I've never seen a 112oz can of pudding before this! I found some of the Carl, and even some of the Rick, stuff rather annoying. But more so, Rick for some reason. Also loved the direction with the pudding-eating on the roof scene.
some of the Carl stuff was actually pretty good. I enjoyed how he had just had enough of Rick and said straight out that he would be fine if Rick was dead. Then his adventures led him to realize he was wrong. Then, almost thinking Rick had died and turned and almost killing him. But when he stopped, exposed his neck, and said he couldn't, was rather brilliantly done.
I especially loved the Michonne flashback. I'm hoping we learn more and more. Love this character and love the actor who plays her. Enjoyed all the insight she provided on TD this week.
I too, wonder what exactly Carl was trying to do with the walkers. If it was just to get them away from the house....then he should have just smashed their skulls in. I thought he was up to something else.
I'm thinking Carl is not strong enough for that yet -- made clear during his pre-pudding rumble. He is good with a noisy gun though. I was glad to see him pick up that lawn lighting but he needed something a tad longer -- a short spear maybe. Is it too soon for him to learn to use a katana?
So... in the world of The Walking Dead, are bones brittle or soft? That sword cutting through so many heads so easily was kind of a head scratcher for me.
Was the axe that Rick used in the store too short or he not strong enough?
I think I was also surprised that once that walker was killed they didn't just hole up there for a day or so to get strength back. I know the house was nicer, but Rick was barely moving then.
I'm no sword expert, but I suspect if they are as sharp as a razor, they could cut through most anything?
Zombies are decaying, which is why some of them seem much worse off than others, because they've been dead longer (in theory)
What I didn't understand is why Carl didn't pick up the solar light "stake" and stab the zombie after his gun ran out of bullets. Didn't he have it with him when he went upstairs?
They've learned that they have to fear people just as much, if not more, than walkers. That store was too exposed. Holding up in a house, which was more concealed, is a better idea.
There was a show on Fox(I think) years ago titled "Herman's Head". They could have started a WD spinoff "Herschel's Head"..
