Lennie James was never under contract. He was simply a guest star.

Just because he wasn't pointing the barrel at Carl doesn't mean he was giving up his gun. How many times have we seen in movies where the bad guy puts his hands up but continues to move toward the cop with the gun, and eventually gets close enough that with some quick movements he disarms the person that was pointing the gun.

I was just getting the facts straight. I wasn't arguing one way or another whether Carl did the right thing.

or the guy puts one palm/hand up and then quickly points and shoots with the other hand (holding the gun)?

oh wait...that happened IN THIS EPISODE!

This. This bit of silliness where the good guy lets the bad guy continue to close in on him happens in EVERY tv show. I'm glad Carl was having none of that nonsense. Carl had obviously been watching 24 where Jack Bauer doesn't mess around. "Drop your weapon!" means exactly that or die.

What the heck is on the end of Carl's gun, a silencer? If so, why is he the only one with a silencer and does a silencer affect shot accuracy?

The Governor's STILL alive? Jeez, Louise. He's overstayed his welcome by half a season already.

I'm not a gun expert, but I believe I recall reading that it is an aluminum baseball bat, which apparently can actually work as a silencer in real life.



Carl's not the only one with a silencer - Rick has one, too. His is a MagLite flashlight. Supposedly that can be rigged to work in real life, too.

Those were great.

Okay, #3 - the Gov looking through the scope - it looks like it would be through the injured eye but it really could also be through the good eye and just held away - and a bad camera angle for that.

#30 - sleeveless and puts on a vest made me laugh out loud!

On the commercial for the Talking Dead, it looked like Norman Reedus really does have a stupid looking hairdo something like his character's. I didn't watch the actual TD show.

The Woodbury gang had blood lust on their minds. They came, shot up the home of their enemy, blew stuff up, then got ran out while being shot at.. The situation only called for 1 warning, he failed to comply.

I don't get Herschel's reasoning for tattling on Carl like that. I get he's kind of a pacifist, but Herschel just set a thing into motion that will probably make Carl act out. By treating Carl like a cold blooded killer, just after we saw him feel bad for having to shoot Morgan a couple of episodes back in "Clear". Or the writers are badly lazy, make Carl feel sympathetic for having to shoot someone one second, make him a cold blooded killer the next.
If you recall, when he was apologizing to Morgan for shooting him Morgan told him to never be sorry.

I wonder how Carl will interact and play with the new group of kids that Rick brought back. Will he play well with others or will it be some "Give you your ball back? Where's my gun? I'll teach you to ask for your ball back" situations.

LMAO

I don't see Carl interracting with other kids at this point - at all. I think he left that far far behind him. He totally fancies himself one of the protectors-in-charge of the group.

Of course I could be wrong. It's been quite a while since I've been in a zombie apocalypse and my memory doesn't serve me very well anymore.

In Morgan's defense, he was trying to kill Rick, Carl, Michonne.. I think his point was to never be sorry about killing someone who is trying to kill you.

I predict (like somebody else mentioned already) that there will quickly be a "clearing" of these new people in the next season to get back to a core group.

Will they be able to get Carl to go to the school they set up? I doubt it. I think he will be arguing that he is grown up and done with all that.

I saw Carol walking right over to the newbies to almost embrace them.

And what have they got now, a bunch of women and children and only a few that could be trained for defense.

And they have to feed them all, and deal with all their "waste".

I say the smaller the group, the better. In a Zombie Apocalypse. I think Morgan had the right idea. Find a house, fortify it, and just be by yourself. None of this other crap to put up with.

If I'm in a small house, I totally agree that I'd want a small number of people.....but in a place like the prison or the town, I'd want more people to divide labor. That being said....I would't want a bus load of woman and children (well maybe )

Perfectly done...As much as I like to analyse TV shows, story-wise, I rarely pay attention or notice the stuff they're point out, but it's definitely hysterical when you lay it out like that.

#12 is great... I wonder the same thing...
#28 made me actually laugh out loud. hysterical.
#25 makes a great point. Andrea's whole arc this season was that she was trying to "save everyone" and Laurie Holden mentioned that Andrea was a human rights lawyer before so she's very sensitive to that stuff... but yet when the group had Randall last season she was all for killing him. No consistency.
#32 made me laugh too... I wasn't finding it that funny and then scrolled down to the picture of Lori with no commentary. hilarious.

I saw it more as him shooting them in the head out of habit (it was "Woodbury Policy") and then just deciding "---- it, let 'em turn."

I thought it was pretty clear that he ran out of ammo.

Except that he had another gun slung over his shoulder, so if he was really interested in finishing the job, he definitely could have. So I think it was more of the, "oh well" attitude than it was the running out of ammo.
