Whereas Morgan can set traps.
Exactly.

Believe me, living in Baltimore I know rats. There are ways to trap a rat, but you need to have a brain to do it. Zombies wouldn't, Morgan would. In fact, like the squirrels, they could also be a food source for him if they were plentiful. Maybe not tasty, but better than starving.

That's very true. But if you are proposing that this particular show meant to leave an open question as to whether this is the same Erin, I disagree. For my money, it was a bit of clever open-and-shut storytelling. There's not meant to be any confusion here...

True and we'll probably get a back story in some kind of webisode

I remembered seeing the bracelet. I also saw the sign, but I don't think I saw the part that said "Erin", so I didn't put the two together.

I liked how calm and matter-of-fact the trio were. I thought Walkers were strong enough to break through car window glass, but they didn't seem the least bit concerned. Rick just casually rolls down his window and says "cover your ears."

That was me as well. I saw the sign but didn't see the Erin part. I assumed it marking a spot where a group, on their way to Stone Mountain, got stuck and overrun by walkers. Kind of like a group headstone.

Then later I saw the bracelet and thought it was odd they zoomed in it enough to read it when we didn't know anyone named Erin.

That's why a katana is perfect. Light, well balanced, fast, and long enough that you don't have to get too close like for a knife.

The Zombie Survival Guide agrees, FWIW.

Quote:
The sword is the ideal edged weapon, but not every kind will suffice. Foils, rapiers, and similar fencing weapons are not suited for slicing. Their only possible use would be a direct stab through the eye socket followed by a quick swirling action through the brain. This motion, however, has been accomplished only once, by a trained swordsman, and is therefore not recommended.

Single-handed long swords allow you a free hand for other tasks such as opening a door or defending your body with a shield. Their only drawback is the lack of swinging power. One arm may not have the strength to slice through the thick cartilage between bones. Another drawback is its user's notorious lack of accuracy. Scoring a flesh wound anywhere on the body of a living opponent is one thing. Making an exact, clean chop through the neck is something else altogether.

Double-handed swords could be considered the best in their class, providing the strength and accuracy for perfect decapitation. Of this type, the Japanese Samurai Katana ranks first. Its weight (three to five pounds) is perfect for long-term conflicts, and its blade can sever the toughest organic fiber.

In tight quarters, shorter blades hold the advantage. The Roman Gladius is one choice, although combat-ready replicas are hard to find. The Japanese Ninjite boats a two-handed grip and, in genuine models, renowned tempered steel. Both factors make it a superior weapon. The common machete, because of its size, weight, and availability, is probably your best choice. If possible, find the military type usually sold at Army surplus stores. Its steel tends to be of a higher quality, and its blackened blade helps concealment at night.

I saw one of the Season One webisodes about the origin of the crawling zombie. That's it though.

I wasn't concerned with the car windows but I was concerned with that old glass door that Carl was casually standing up against with the horde right on the other side.

That notion occurred to me, also. That type of bracelet is the type of bracelet they put on newborns in the hospital back when I was born. Then the mother usually kept it as a keepsake (probably not mine, as she didn't like me..but that's another Jerry Springer show). I don't get around much anymore, but I've never seen that type of bracelet in any other scenario than with the newborn thing.

But he did appear to be holding the swam back behind the crickety door with his foot and muscular 80 lb frame.

I've seen those bracelets before with the person's name on them (necklaces too) even though I don't get around too much either. I immediately thought "that must be Erin... the one mentioned in the sign". I couldn't imagine the directors of the show wanting us to make any other assumption.

I think they want you to believe that since walkers can't turn a doorknob (or open cages), they will remain in that cafe until someone lets them out. The cafe door is apparently the strongest door of the ZA.

I think the walkers in this world are attracted by what they can see, hear, or maybe smell. With the door closed and Carl being quiet, it stands to reason that the walkers on the other side of the door would quickly lose interest and stop pushing on the door since they couldn't see or hear anything on the other side of the door.

That's what we were told, but most military bases have chain link fences. Get a big enough herd of walkers pushing on that fencing and the chain link is not going to hold. I predict that will eventually happen at the prison as well.

On a semi-related note, why were there walkers in the cafe? Was there some event that made people just die immediately right where they were sitting, and then they turned into walkers? Or did someone lead them into that building and then shut the door and they couldn't get out? Seems odd to me that a bunch of people would just die mid-meal at a diner like that. And all the bodies in the cars they find seems odd, too. Most of the wrecks don't look serious enough to have killed all the passengers immediately, but yet the cars seem to all have dead, decaying bodies in them as if the passengers died before they had a chance to get out.

No reason they couldn't overrun military bases from the inside.
