The Walking Dead "Crossed" 11/23/14 | Talking Dead 11/23/14 NO preview spoilers

Why did they bother to take Tyreese on the rescue mission? He can't even hurt a walker unless he's pushed. They should just assign him as Judith's permanent nanny and find a dress for him.

But they needed someone who would actually defend Judith if the church was attacked!

How obvious that Sasha (her name right?) was going to get knocked out like that and he'll run away!

And WTF is up with the priest?!?! Getting weirder and weirder!

Rick has to justify his decision making process to the group now. Yet Sasha gets
to untie the cop from the post and move him out of the area without any discussion or backup ( Of course no one notices).

Not to mention --"taking a shot" that will alert the Dawn group to their location.

Why is she guarding prisoners with a sniper rifle. Makes no sense. It's a security-risk
(Same reason prison guards do not carry).

Well it sets up the mid-season finale of a big battle.

That's a terrible thing to say.
Just because a man prefers not to kill things and instead is good with kids is no reflection on his manhood or masculinity.

And even if it was "find a dress for him" is still hateful and unnecessary- your point would have been better made had you not stooped to this type of insult.

You could rewrite that sentence "They should just assign him as Judith's permanent nanny and let him stay back at the camp." and it says the same thing yet without being so grossly insulting .

I thought that when he pushed her (and it was so obvious what his plan was), she would fall out through the window.

I wouldn't call that a sniper rifle. Plus as you should know they use whatever they have.

My recording cut off right as Sasha and the cop were walking up to the window. Can someone recap what happened?

They all referenced the dead or dead rising. I froze the screen and googled them. I thought it was kind of cool.

The cop ran up behind her, slammed her head into the window, and ran away.

That whole section of the show this week was so boring. Yeah I get, Rositta (or whatever her name is) was needed then and now, and Abraham is having a breakdown, but come on!

I think they were waiting to see if Eugene woke up dead or alive.

LOL

The writers needed him to go on the mission so his sister would have someone to vent and cry to about Bob 1.

They are having a camping trip while the others go to battle. Fishing, yoyos, hiking... I think next they will start a campfire.

Yeah, if I were Maggie and Glen I'm gone.

I didn't really get that pastor guy pulling out the floorboards and escaping the church through the floor. Why couldn't he just walk out the door and be like 'see ya - wouldn't wanna be ya'.

I get why Tyreese is the way he is but I'm afraid that, at some point, he's going to have to get tough to survive. I think it's pretty clear that, in a world like that, sometimes you have to do stuff you might not have otherwise done in order to survive. It's either - choose survival, or say adios.

What I liked most about the episode was having all the storylines playing out instead of a whole episode about one of them.

As to Bob2 - Gee, what a shocker. NOT

I want some strawberries!

I thought the police officer that escaped was still tied up. Looked like he just slammed into her to make her hit her head and ran out the door with his hands still behind his back. I was thinking "Man.. with all those walkers, how far can he make it with no hands?"

Taking your prisoner to a secluded place, turning your back on them. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. It's like when the one guy got his hands on Judith's neck. Why did they not tie him to something? Of yeah, the writers needed to create conflict. They were planning on releasing them. She should've said "well when this is all over you should go back and end your friends suffering" or something like that.

I liked the episode, though it was a bit of a slow burn.

Knocking her out with that bang against the window seemed odd.

What was the point of Michone's intense stare earlier in the episode, at the preacher I think.

Why is the preacher running away ? Why didn't the people trying to get into the church in the past crawl in under the building.

These are my questions

That rewrite doesn't say the same thing at all especially considering the insult is the whole point of the statement.
Speaking of points. What's the point of getting your panties in a wad over a fictional character being insulted for being nearly useless?

and as long as we're suggesting rewrites:
You could just rewrite your statement as "I disagree" and it says the same thing without the holier than thou attitude.

Probably because you insulted every woman in the world along the way.

I could not speak for her but, as another female, I'd say that the statement not only says he is worthless, but that he is so worthless that he's a girl - so he should wear a dress.

In case that doesn't spell it out, females are worthless.

I really doubt if that is what you were trying to say, of course, but that is exactly how it reads. No offense intended, just another POV.
