I agree that I used to think the 30 minute format was too short but now think the 1 hour format is too long.

Maybe they just didn't show all of it?
There were at least 3 bags that they loaded up into the car.

Exactly. I couldn't stand TTD when it was 30 mins, and I dang sure couldn't stand it being an hour. I tried it several times last season, but it sucked so bad....

Yes. I actually went back to re-watch just to read things on the walls and to look at the booby traps. I agree that. They need booby traps at the jail. They were brilliant.

Rick from season 1 or 2 would have at least given him a fair shake. What they did to that him was only better than what someone like the governor would have done to that guy.
Rick was even willing to put a non-threatening walker out of her misery in S1E1.

I still think they could have tied him up and put him in the trunk or the back of the car until they finished their mission. It wouldn't have been that difficult. I understand why they did it but it was really sad (and funny).

TD was really good this week (it helped that WD was such a strong fan episode). Aisha was a better guest than Kevin Smith, Steven Yeun or even Kirkman. In fact, Kirkman might be the worst guest of all. He doesn't add anything IMO.

The problem with the "insiders" at least this half-season is that they get asked good questions then bend themselves into a pretzel trying to avoid spoilers because they know what happens in subsequent episodes, and wind up wasting 2 minutes of an already too-long show with a non-answer.

I just FF through the useless bits, such as live fan questions (actually all of the fan questions). I like to watch the In Memoriam segment, as well as the behind the scenes.

Plus Aisha Tyler is awesome.

I thought it was a strong episode, and I really liked the fact that they showed other "survivors" and how rare it is to actually survive. The hitchhiker was the obvious reference, but the "Erin" character was much more subtle and powerful in her own way. I'm surprised no one's mentioned her yet.

Agree that the bar door knob scene w/ Michione going back for the photo seemed a bit disjointed. Something got cut (for time maybe) and it was obvious.

What was "KCC" on the map? Was that the restaurant/bar?

Where are they getting all those rats? If the walkers eat them, seems to me they'd be extinct by now.

I'd imagine it would be next to impossible for walkers to actually CATCH any small creatures.

I actually just read something that the Neanderthals could have gone extinct because they didn't change their hunting behavior from deer/large animals to small animals for food when the large animals died out.

Walkers gotta adapt!!

And rats are both fast and tricky. THEY have adapted and survived thru many things humanity has thrown at them.

OK, but then how did he get all of the rats for his traps? Going out to hunt rats with walkers around... not my first choice.

I am sure that there are a lot of rats living in the buildings inside his protected zone. He catches them in safe trap and uses them to lure the walkers into the unsafe traps.

In fact, that's where they'd be most likely to be. The ones who wander free-range in a zombie-rich environment don't pass on their free-range genes.

Rats in a building, even outside the safe zone, would be pretty much zombie-proof, since they live out of sight, only come out to forage, and would have no problem slipping into a wall, drain, etc. at the first sign of trouble.

Whereas Morgan can set traps.

OK... I feel much better educated about the rat situation now. Thanks

No comment on the "Erin" character/story? I thought that was such a nice subtle little thing to throw in there. It really added to the whole "this is how other people are surviving (or not)" subtext to this episode. But no comments by anyone... :/

There was a walker that had a bracelet that said "Erin" I think I remember - is that the girl you're referring to? Am I forgetting her from somewhere?

Yeah, I assumed "Erin" was killed in the car accident they came across and therefore died and turned just miles before she would have found the sign that was left for her. Sad.

So there was a sign for Erin? I missed that originally or didn't connect them and forgot.

This.

First they showed the car passing the sign that said (something like) "Erin, heading to Stone Mountain", and then later they're attacked by zombie Erin. If only her friends had waited for her... or if only she had found them... it's the untold story that fascinates me.

Oh - I wonder if her friends have a leader that is holding up the group because he's convinced she's alive and they will find her, when the reality is he's wasting half the season because he feels responsible for letting her alone in the woods and doesn't want to confront the uncomfortable reality.

King County Cafe.

If you like Lennie James (Morgan), I would thoroughly recommend you check out Line of Duty. Not available for streaming, but there are ways.
