    I liked this episode even though it was relatively thoughtful. Couldn't believe the change in Rick after his shave and haircut.

    Lots of setup, still not really clear where this is going.

    Who played the congress woman? - wasn't on IMDB when I looked.

    How about the blond woman who cut Rick's hair ?

    I was confused whether Rick walking alone at night were dreams or real at times.

    I LOVED Carol's video. Absolutely awesome! She put herself right into the middle of the community and made herself seem helpless, when she's probably one of the most perceptive and dangerous of the entire group. Outstanding!

    I hope Daryl can keep his sh*t together long enough for whatever disaster is coming (no spoilers, I'm just assuming...) to arrive.

    I don't know what sort of architectural college Deeanna's husband taught at, but the construction of those walls seemed really odd to me: why are the reinforcements on the OUTSIDE? If you're worried about people (or walkers) breaching from the outside why wouldn't you avoid giving them an easy way to climb the walls, and wouldn't having the braces on the inside make it harder to push the walls down from the outside? Weird.

    I agree with the dream thing. So, when Rick was talking to Jessie's husband was that real? That had a weird vibe to it then Rick wakes up, but I think it was real. Do you think Jessie and her husband are estranged/divorced and that's why that was an odd interaction? Or is her husband just the jealous type?

    Who took Rick's gun? Hm...

    Man this confused me but eventually I realized you meant Carol :)

    Why are there no Zs near the town? There were thousands on the road not too far away.

    I'm waiting for the baddies that attacked the gated community where Noah's family lived.
    The outcasts will lead them to Alexandria.

    Agree about the wall. Not up to code: support posts should never be visible from streetview.

    Rick's hairsytlist is played by Alexandra Breckenridge ( She played the young Moria
    dressed in the French maid's outfit in S1 of American Horror Story. Frances Conroy played old Moira. Breckenridge returned for S3 of AHS as Kaylee).

    Same thought as you about the walls.

    Enjoyed this episode a lot... moved things along into a new direction.

    What did Congresswoman Deanna say? That she exiled three people because they weren't a fit? Perhaps that is to be Daryl's fate and Rick's group will have a big problem with it. That could be why they are setting him up as an outsider type.

    Yeah, Darryl presumably was an outsider before the apocalypse. He also wasn't too thrilled with Rick's uniform and Carols soccer mom outfit.

    But he off all people should have appreciated the total con-job she was playing! I think of all of them, she's handling this situation the best...suspicious, but not letting on.

    Then again, she is a...hmmm. Is there a word for somebody who does sociopathic/psychopathic things for the sake of others? ;)

    I think Deanna is setting up Rick to be on her side when the coup comes. Seems she is having a hard time controlling her son and his friend and there might be a growing rift in the community.

    Deanna is right they do need people who have been out there to protect them.

    I'm starting to get a bit of a Magnificent Seven vibe from this plot line.

    I thought that was extremely odd too, I can't think of any way that makes sense in a construction/reinforcement way. The only thing that comes to mind is a production issue with the location. They wanted to use a place that already had those wall but needed to use the houses on the outside of the walls for some reason and figured that few people would notice or care.

    According to Talking Dead
    everything that is being done must be up to local code as it is a living community. Even if a resident is coming home from work they must clear the streets so he/she can reach their home.
    So some things probably would not make sense from our post-zombie apocalypse mind sets.

    Loved this episode.

    Maggie was so proud of her man knocking the idiot down after his failed attempt at reason.

    I'm wondering if that girl found the gun. Don't know -- no spoiling -- she was wandering around out there so...

    It must have felt good getting clean after so long. I can't see how Daryl could resist taking a shower. Michonne was flashing a Pepsodent smile after her 20 minute brush. (I'm old enough to remember those commercials.)

    Carol is a mess. Den mother? Bytch please.

    She's not a mess, she's playing them. She's pretending to be all sweet and innocent so they won't keep a watchful eye on her.

    I mean, she's a mess in the sense that she's a stone-cold killer, but here she's just being smart. (Smarter than Rick and Dar-L, who aren't smart enough to hide their suspicions...)

    I was thinking that as well. Also, just guessing, does she have someone out there she's working for?

    Good episode but that place gives me a bad feeling.

    What's up with the young girl climbing the fence? Apparently she wasn't escaping because she showed back up with Rick/Carl when glen and the other guy got into it.

    Not to pick nits but they really should have clarified that part. It almost seemed like a scene was missing.

    And I also couldn't tell if Rick was dreaming when the guy on the porch was talking to him.

    What was missing? Glenn was pissed at those guys for being so careless, they know what it's really like, and messing around w/ a walker like that will get you killed.

    I dunno... I think they're all playing their roles. There's no way that anyone in charge is going to trust Daryl, and Rick is positioning himself as "the law". Between the three of them they have someone who can get "in" with all the different parts of the community: Carol with the PTA clan, Rick with the power structure, and Daryl with whatever opposition group might be lurking in the background.

    I don't think it would work, at all, if they all tried to pull Carol's trick. Deanna, at least, would be highly suspicious.

    They said she just joined them recently. I think she's a bit like Carl: she doesn't want to get weak and be too dependent, so she goes outside the walls by herself a lot. Remember when they first arrived at the gate, Carl saw her in the window of the burned out house just outside the walls by the gate.
