Carl's growing on me this season. He used to be kind of a waste of screen time, but I think he's been taking acting lessons. Or maybe just hanging out with these people has been good for him.

I had to laugh at the Herschel and Guv "yes they're really really REALLY dead" cameos.

I agree about Carl; I used to be one of the biggest Carl-bashers in earlier seasons, but he's gotten better all the way around...

So who's been trimming the hedges in the chocolate pudding house?

(I thought it must be an indication that somebody was living there, but I guess it was just lazy set dressing.)

I suppose if you're going to have Michonne-level anger issues, it's helpful to live in a world with a ready outlet for all that pent-up aggression.

Excellent ending. I was so hoping Michonne would find Carl. They need to know if Judith is alive and all will be well in Z-land.

I was kind of hoping that Michonne would find Carl's shoe. And give it to him when she found him at the end.

These people need to learn how to talk. Was Rick trying to get killed? If his throat was too dry to talk, why not just lay where he was instead of lurching towards Carl like a walker while Carl points a gun at him? And why couldn't Michonne whisper that it was her instead of knocking and standing there quietly?

Carl figured he'd try diabetes, maybe it doesn't attract walkers!

Because she could see there was a peephole on the door.

Heck, why didn't she just talk to them thru the window that she looked in. Knocking was more fun!

I think that might be exactly it. Zombies don't knock, and she would have checked the street for zombies that might have been attracted by the (relatively small) noise. So I'll forgive it. It was a fun moment.

I loved that moment when Michonne realized she is really can't become dead inside, because she was the same as the walkers. She was just part of the herd at that point.

Seeing her "Walker-Twin" sealed the fate of the rest.

(I'm now craving some pudding.)

I had a small glimmer of hope that they were going to really mix things up and have Carl off his dad mistakenly thinking he was a walker.

Yeah, speaking of people doing incredibly stupid things...next time, Dad, lead with "Carl."

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.

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.
