Actually, I think she's redeeming herself so far this season...

Sort of like in the Navy, only days to go until enlistment is up.

Found the post from a S2 thread where the timeline blogs were linked:

I just googled: amc walking dead timeline

I found these sites and several others. Beware of spoilers.

According to two timelines I have read, it has been 5-6 days from the CDC explosion until Barnageddon!

Weird. I guess it's because when I quoted the post, it didn't bring the actual URLs, but instead only included the actual text with the ... in the middle of the link.

Try them again, they're fixed now.

I wondered where the prisoners got water for 260 odd days.

That's definitely a good question. The only logical answer is that the running water still works. Maybe the prison gets its water from an on-site well and there's been nothing that shut it down or otherwise compromised it.

Don't wells require electricity for the pump? Maybe they had a LOT of bottled water...

But at some point during that time, the outbreak hit the prison (maybe a guard got bit on the way to work or something, and then transformed in the infirmary), so we can probably assume that by the time Rick awoke from his coma to find the world had gone to hell, the prison was already in full throes of the outbreak.
Alternatively, since everyone is already infected, all it would take is a prisoner or guard to die and the domino effect would happen. Lets say the prison went on lock down and no infected got in, eventually the prisoners would eventually unruly and riot started, killing a guard and/or rival gang member. Or a guard got bit and brought it in, I guess it doesn't matter either way.

Maybe the prison has its own power generation as well.

Those two spoilers took me all of 3 seconds.
I was coming here to suggest this exact thing. Good idea!

It would be fun if Charlie got eaten.

I wouldn't find it far fetched if the prison had it's own water tower. Not sure how big would be typical, but with only a handful of guys drawing from it, I'd find it a completely plausible explanation.

I think "we" rather than "I" is really important phrasing. He might have been softening to her as a member of the group, but it was very cold and hard for someone who is her husband.

I thought as he squeezed her shoulder and straightened his arm, he actually pushed her slightly further away (literally).

On the AMC website, there's a behind-the-scenes segment for this episode, where this particular scene is discussed by both Andrew Lincoln and also the actress who plays Laurie. I thought their statements on the scene were interesting to hear. I disagree with them, though...

Re-watching this episode. I counted five strikes against Tomas.
  1. Kills the Walker behind Tiny with Rick's back to him.
  2. Kills "his friend" Tiny violently.
  3. Opens both doors instead of one.
  4. Swing his machete too close to Rick.
  5. Pushes the Walker onto Rick.
Rick obviously had seen enough.

Then like two episodes later, she was telling Shane how confused she was about things and it might be his baby. Talk about mixed signals! Then Rick does kill Shane to protect himself and his family - and Lori freaks out about it? They either did a terrible job writing her or purposefully wrote her as a moron.
I remember an episode where she pretty much suggested killing Shane, he did then she freaked out and he pretty much said it was her idea. Maybe I'm remembering it wrong, but with that in mind I think they are writing her as a manipulative b*tch not a moron.

edit: maybe she suggested "getting rid of him" and not meaning death. not sure, I guess I should re watch those episodes.

That was the scene where Rick was explaining how he killed those men in the bar. Lori said that he was doing everything he had to do to defend his own. Then she drew a very clear parallel saying how Shane considered her and Carl as his own. She was basically saying that Shane would do anything, including killing Rick.

She did come clean, though, in E01 when she was talking with Hershel.
