So I am assuming that they are now about 49 miles from the prison. I'm pretty sure they said that place they were going was about 50 miles and they looked to be about 1 mile from it. That's going to be a long/dangerous hump back to the prison!

Well, first they have to go to the school and get the meds. And I assume they'll find transportation there.

Finding transportation should be the easiest thing in the Walking Dead world. Abandoned cars everywhere.

now that you say that, you are probably right but for some reason I thougt they ran away in the opposite direction. It makes sense that they would go to the school because they still need the meds.

They ran off into the woods, which isn't the direction they came from (down the road) and also isn't directly towards the school (down the road the other way where four billion zombies are congregating). I assume their plan is to circle around the school-horde and try to find a way in.

I wonder what "attracted" all of those walkers there? BTW Nicetero (spelling) said that was 7500 walkers in last week's Talking Bad.

I would love to see some World War Z-style fast zombies on The Walking Dead.

I figured they were further out than just one mile. How did you get that figure? And wouldn't that many walkers be seen by Michonne or anyone else going out earlier?

I was wondering why there were so many also.

Favorite line was when the black medical guy comes over and asks if they really want him to go on the run. Daryl lifts a piece of paper to his face and asks, "what's this word?" Bob replies, "(some word I can't pronounce or spell)" Daryl replies "Yup, we need you." Made me lol.

Well the school could be seen from the car just down the hill. I was just estimating it was about a mile away from the car.

Sounds about right. If anything, closer.

FYI, the closed captioning of the message they got on the radio is...
"...find sanctuary."
"...determined to survive..."
"...Keep alive."

hmmm...so that could easily just be an automated recording setup after the outbreak but before it really hit the fan.

Of course I fully expect somebody to chime in about what would still be powering it

It sure looked like Hershel had two good legs last night. Maybe a very slight limp, but two full legs.

They found him a prosthetic remember? (I'm sure the actor was thrilled when that little plot contrivance was created - he gets to stop using crutches).

Well, it could have been a large-handed child.

Or a small-handed man.

Or a shape-shifting alien.

came here to post exactly that...

of course, the missing words could be "we need (to find sanctuary)..."

and "we will kill you to (keep alive) our zombie family and friends..."

I don't think it provided any useful information at all.



The only thing the scene says to me is that Rick was investigating the murders. Then when he asked Carol if she did it, he did so with no real evidence that it was her.

He placed his hand on the smear and saw that it was smaller than his hand. So yes he did get information from his "investigation".

So, the information was that he did not do it? I'd say he already had that information.

I thought the same. Although I did expect that it might inspire him to look for bloody fingerprints. Instead, he just deduced it was Carol from the way she was acting.

The size of the print made him think about the women. The murder took a certain kind of strength and determination, which Carol has been showing.

I was blindsided. He first complemented her on how much she's been doing and asked her if she would do anything for the group. I thought he was going to tell her that she should be leading the group!

Huh? Are you saying he never considered that a woman could have committed the murders until he saw a small bloody handprint?

It's pulled directly from a radio transmission in the comics. Though in the comics, the Sanctuary referenced is later in the series

So then what's scarier than all those walkers attacking the car, is that they are going to over run the prison real soon.

What is attracting all those walkers gather like that and then to be moving down the road (slowly) towards the prison eventually.

I am surprised they had not been spotted earlier in the rides out. That's a LOT of walkers.

Carl Jr. is still short, but Herschel grew another FOOT!
So, when did Herschel grow his leg back?

In the garden scene in S4E01, you could see that he's got a prosthetic leg.

They never rode out to the school because it's 50 miles away. I doubt walkers will huff it 50 miles. They have no idea what's at the prison or even which direction it is. I'd imagine Herschel knew about the school because he was a veterinarian and they had a veterinary department at the school, not because they had scoped out the area.

No way Carol is dragging 140+ lb bodies from a cell to outside the prison. It would be hard enough for her to drag the bodies in a wheelbarrow.

As for FOUR people in a car not seeing thousands of walkers up ahead on the road. Pretty ridiculous. I could maybe buy one person alone in the car trying to adjust the radio but the other 3 only need to listen and not look at the radio. Wouldn't anyone living in fear of walkers daily have a heightened sense of what is around them?

Where is this taking place again? Couldn't they catch rain water in all the barrels lying around the prison? I guess hindsight and all that but if you have become conservative and grown your own food you would probably want to conserve water too and catch rainwater if possible.
