The Walking Dead "Them" 2/15/15 | Talking Dead 2/15/15

My first thought when the dogs showed up - "There's dinner"

"We are the Walking Dead."

Is Aaron a good guy or bad guy?

If they're following the comics in this instance...

Spoiler:

Good guy. He's an advance scout for the Alexandria safe zone, a place where the group finds a home for quite some time. Aaron's job is to follow groups of survivors, gathering enough information about them to determine if they're a threat or not. If they're not, he approaches them unarmed and offers them a home in Alexandria.

I was wondering how they were going to get out alive after being trapped in the barn with the walkers beating down the door. The tornado was a nice touch! Though I thought it was odd that they would feel safe and comfortable enough to sleep after such a rough night.

I have no idea who this Aaron character is, but do they finally catch a break? Or is this yet another psycho? How did he know Rick's name? Is he in cahoots with Morgan? Where has Morgan been - it's been over 3 weeks now since they buried Tyrese (I'm glad they gave us a time frame for that).

Enjoyed this episode more than last week's.

It is good to see a new character introduced. He is so clean shaven though. He must have been holed up comfortably before emerging.

The fact that Aaron was way too clean in this world makes me think he's nothing but trouble.

<scoff> You're so cynical! Maybe he's just a really nice guy, who takes pride in his appearance!

Why do you always have to assume the worst about people?

I think you need to stop watching the show.

I thought the zombies at the door was imagined.

I did too until they went outside.

It was a weird cut - all of a sudden they were all sleeping peacefully - I thought it was just a dream sequence for a few moments.

As someone who has lived his entire life in either Northern Virginia or Richmond, I am very curious about this extremely rural route they are taking between the two.

Did the barn door have a bar, or was it just our survivors holding the walkers at bay? If there was no bar, I wonder how the survivors didn't burst out the door when the tornado sucked away all the walker resistance on the other side?

I'm hopeful that Aaron is a good guy. After the guys in the bar, the Governor, Pete/Mitch/Martinez's group, the "claimers," the Termites, the Hospital group...I'm starting to get "everyone else alive is a villain" exhaustion.

I did, too! Plus, he knows their names - or at least Rick's. How? Why?
Morgan's friend? Maybe. My first thought was totally Bad News.

I did, too! Actually, at first I thought it was the storm trying to get in - like a tornado - but then there were arms and too many to fend them off... then they show everyone sleeping. Weird.

Seems awfully special that the tornado went right around them. How likely is that, in reality?

Entirely plausible. I grew up in Kansas and have seen tornadoes do the damndest things. The broken trees outside the barn looked realistic enough, but the walker's bodies would have been scattered far and wide by the wind.

Glad I'm not the only one lost on the zombnado (feel free to use that! LOL). I thought it was real, then I thought it was Maggie's dream, then back to real again with the tornado. I have no idea what we were supposed to get out of that.

I'll watch TD tonight and see if they discuss that.

I didn't get this until reading this thread. :blush:

I thought they had laid some clever trap around the cabin prior to settling in.

That is what I get for multitasking through that segment.

Happens all the time - there are hundreds of pictures of one house being completely destroyed and the house right next to it not more than 20 feet away totally untouched.

It didn't have a bar, but it was chained shut. However the chain didn't look too sturdy.

When I was little, my Dad drove past a house on his way to work. During the day a tornado came through. When Dad passed the house on his way home, it was on it's foundation, but it was turned 180 degrees so the front door was now facing the back yard.

The path of destruction looked a bit too narrow to me. I live in the Midwest, so I've seen many a news report on tornado damage. Not saying it couldn't happen that way, but still not a very realistic portrayal in my opinion...but, then, this isn't a "realistic" program.

Did someone actually mention "tornado" in the episode? I just thought it was a bad thunderstorm.

They showed a glimpse of the dogs last week in a preview and I thought it was a pack of wolves and related to that spray painted sign that referenced wolves and that town that Noah grew up was attacked by wolves.

I am 100% sure that the walker's in the barn was a dream (or let's say I was until I read here. There is no way they could hold them off , have no damage to the door and be comfortably asleep a few hours later (with no idea what happened). I hate all forms of dream sequences, especially those presented as real.

Decent show, Rick's ever growing beard is reminding me of someone.

No one said it, but the broken trees outside the barn and a clear trail of damage leading away were pretty clearly tornado damage.

They are avoiding any major metro areas because those areas have higher concentrations of walkers.

I think every group has evil tendencies. Just varying degrees from slightly evil to dark lord evil. I think any attempt to be purely good in this world results in death.

But that doesn't explain all the dead and dying (or the zombie equivalent) walkers outside the barn in the morning...

My take on the storm is the group was exhausted/broken and after holding the door as a group they collapsed when the wind/zombies stopped.


Spoiler warning. There are some big events coming up. We're talking Game of Thrones level spoilers. Don't look at the spoilers hoping they might only be little ones.

I have a hard time believing that, especially since Darrell was awake.

Also...I found it strange that not 1 person yelled for help to the group. They just staggardly woke up and each came over without warning from anybody.

Here's a thought: why don't we just not post big spoilers (whether tagged or not)? Then there's no risk to anyone. What's the point of posting big spoilers here anyway? If people want to discuss the comics vs. the TV series I suggest a new thread for comic readers, similar to how it's done in GoT.

I agree that was odd... the entire thing was a bit odd, but it definitely happened (not a dream).

Showrunner/writers/actors all quoted as saying the story is a tornado came through and nailed the walkers. No dreams, etc....but, as I mentioned above, the outside damage, specifically the narrow damage area through the trees, did not look "realistic"...
