The Walking Dead "Slabtown" 11/2/14 | Talking Dead 11/2/14

For some reason, I want to hate Noah.

When Dawn was dissing Beth, did she seriously not realize that for the past...how many years has it been now?...while Dawn was hiding in the hospital, Beth was OUT IN THE WORLD. Surviving.

As people in that hospital are starting to realize, people who underestimate that kind of person can expect to have a dramatically reduced lifespan...

I suspect soon that Rick will be asking 3 questions of Dawn.

Man I did not like this episode. I found it confusing and disjointed, all the things happening to Beth but she asks almost no questions. The scenario seem inplausible and even the acting seemed off.

Just when I was hoping for the, now standard, fast resolution they catch Beth.

My assumption is this all happened before the end of last weeks episode, Carol has faked her way in and Daryl and her will rescue Beth and end up in the woods near the church.

The Morgan reveal has gone nowhere fast.

Dawn and Noah looked so familiar to me. FYI: Dawn was Stephen Merchant's roomie in 'Hello Ladies'. And Noah played the young Chris in 'Everybody Hates Chris'.

Didn't care much for this episode since we don't know who came out of the woods with Daryl.

I still don't like Beth but I'm shipping Beth and Noah -- totally age appropriate.

Yes. I was thinking this same thing.

And yet, when Beth finally went to escape, she didn't take any tools with her for walker killing like a big stick or such. Just a gun that only has so many bullets, and she had already been shown earlier how many walkers were in the area.

Too bad she didn't do the walker blood all over her thing.

Yes. I stopped it at like 40 minutes going "it's not over yet?" and laughed. Some episodes whilz thru, this one crawled.

I thought it was just terrible - poorly written, poorly directed, poorly acted. It played like a bad episode from some second-rate 50's sci-fi series. The actress playing Dawn wasn't even of soap-opera quality. And Beth is a sweetheart, but neither the character nor the actress is dynamic enough to carry a complete episode.

The whole ep was a disaster.

Not Beth, but Noah, perhaps?

It pretty much has to be Noah, Beth, or Morgan, I think.

At one point I forgot that I was even watching "The Walking Dead." I actually clicked the info button to see what it was.

I think Carol is in the hospital with Beth, and Daryl is taking Noah back to camp to get everyone else and come rescue them.

I didn't think this episode was so bad. It wasn't wham bam like the previous few have been but it was still interesting. However, for some reason Tivo didn't record the first few minutes (we started in the middle of the intro credits) so I missed the entire thing with Beth waking up and was confused for a while about the payment system worked. Maybe that confusion worked to keep things from getting boring

I didn't find it boring or slow at all. It's always interesting to me to see different types of communities that develop in the face of what's going on. And why they break down.

I actually like Beth, but this episode was confusing throughout.

I still have no idea what's going on in the hospital, or how they ended up in the current situation. It seemed like every explanation used a lot of pronouns ("him") that weren't clear to me who was being referenced.

Since Beth only just woke at the beginning, surely this has to be in the past compared to the church scenes.

+1

This reminds me of the Hershel Farm episodes when every week people were say "it's so boring, it's so boring, it's so boring"

THIS is actually The Walking Dead.

I thought it was great.

Same here.

And I didn't find it confusing, or at least any more confusing than they meant it to be. They doled out the information slowly, but they did dole it out.

As Rick famously said in the comic book, "We ARE the walking dead!"

They clearly established an endentured servant system where you never can work your way out of the debt of food and shelter. It seems odd that Beth wouldn't ask for the details of the debt/payment situation.

I also think it's Noah coming out of the woods with Darryl.

Who was in the picture with Dawn? the creepy rapist cop?

Nope, that was Hansen: Dawn's previous boss and the guy who meant well but got a bunch of people killed, and Dawn "took care of him" (according to the doctor).

They deliberately left it pretty ambiguous as to how long Beth is there. Her cheek is healing, but then gets broken open again, etc. It could have been a few weeks. This is definitely contemporaneous with the whole Terminus story line: we know for a fact that when she sees Carol, this is after Darryl broke the taillights and they took off after the hearse.

One thing that didn't make sense was that, in the "real" world, Rapey cop would have made himself in charge a long time ago and Dawn would've been just another victim.

I agree. I think we will see that Daryl and Carol follow the hearse to the area of the hospital and somehow find Noah. He tells them what's going on in the hospital and they come up with a plan to go get Beth. Carols goes in "undercover" while Daryl and Noah go back to get the others. It is Noah who is with Daryl coming out of the woods.

At least that is my conjecture. I'm hoping we find out next week but I'm not holding my breath. I'm guessing maybe next week we get a full episode of the scientist and his crew.

I could have sworn Dawn said they rescued people "for them." There seemed to be more woman than men there. From how Gorman was, I want to believe that all of the cops there were the dirty, rape their prisoners type behind the scenes. It's not like Gorman became that way once he saw Beth.

I actually wanted to compare their bunch to Terminus. Initially they meant well, then something happened (Dawns former boss going nutso) which changed them to be like they are now. The brutish, indentured servitude type with a side of rape.

Also, there seems to always be a backlash from fans when new characters are introduced. I assume because it stops/slows the storyline for the main crew and the only familiar character was Beth.

It's not that he went nutso, it's that he DIDN'T go nutso...he was a nice guy, and people died as a result. So Dawn took him out, and everybody else went nutso under her command.

So yes, exactly like Terminus (well, without the cannibalism).

Yeah that was friggin' annoying.

I liked the episode, as long as they get the heck out of that hospital in the next half episode max.

Where do I remember that actress who played Dawn from? She looks familiar.

FlashForward is the obvious suspect, but YMMV.
