    For some reason, I want to hate Noah.

    When Dawn was dissing Beth, did she seriously not realize that for the past...how many years has it been now?...while Dawn was hiding in the hospital, Beth was OUT IN THE WORLD. Surviving.

    As people in that hospital are starting to realize, people who underestimate that kind of person can expect to have a dramatically reduced lifespan...

    I suspect soon that Rick will be asking 3 questions of Dawn.

    Man I did not like this episode. I found it confusing and disjointed, all the things happening to Beth but she asks almost no questions. The scenario seem inplausible and even the acting seemed off.

    Just when I was hoping for the, now standard, fast resolution they catch Beth.

    My assumption is this all happened before the end of last weeks episode, Carol has faked her way in and Daryl and her will rescue Beth and end up in the woods near the church.

    The Morgan reveal has gone nowhere fast.

    I found this one to be most boring and slow episode ever.

    It was.

    Dawn and Noah looked so familiar to me. FYI: Dawn was Stephen Merchant's roomie in 'Hello Ladies'. And Noah played the young Chris in 'Everybody Hates Chris'.

    Didn't care much for this episode since we don't know who came out of the woods with Daryl.

    I still don't like Beth but I'm shipping Beth and Noah -- totally age appropriate.

    Yes. I was thinking this same thing.

    And yet, when Beth finally went to escape, she didn't take any tools with her for walker killing like a big stick or such. Just a gun that only has so many bullets, and she had already been shown earlier how many walkers were in the area.

    Too bad she didn't do the walker blood all over her thing.

    Yes. I stopped it at like 40 minutes going "it's not over yet?" and laughed. Some episodes whilz thru, this one crawled.

    I thought it was just terrible - poorly written, poorly directed, poorly acted. It played like a bad episode from some second-rate 50's sci-fi series. The actress playing Dawn wasn't even of soap-opera quality. And Beth is a sweetheart, but neither the character nor the actress is dynamic enough to carry a complete episode.

    The whole ep was a disaster.

    Not Beth, but Noah, perhaps?

    It pretty much has to be Noah, Beth, or Morgan, I think.

    At one point I forgot that I was even watching "The Walking Dead." I actually clicked the info button to see what it was.

    I think Carol is in the hospital with Beth, and Daryl is taking Noah back to camp to get everyone else and come rescue them.

    I didn't think this episode was so bad. It wasn't wham bam like the previous few have been but it was still interesting. However, for some reason Tivo didn't record the first few minutes (we started in the middle of the intro credits) so I missed the entire thing with Beth waking up and was confused for a while about the payment system worked. Maybe that confusion worked to keep things from getting boring :p

    I didn't find it boring or slow at all. It's always interesting to me to see different types of communities that develop in the face of what's going on. And why they break down.

    I actually like Beth, but this episode was confusing throughout.

    I still have no idea what's going on in the hospital, or how they ended up in the current situation. It seemed like every explanation used a lot of pronouns ("him") that weren't clear to me who was being referenced.

    Since Beth only just woke at the beginning, surely this has to be in the past compared to the church scenes.

    FYI: AMC and the Satellite providers are going to be having a dispute, in case you somehow missed the way over the top warnings.

    This reminds me of the Hershel Farm episodes when every week people were say "it's so boring, it's so boring, it's so boring"

    THIS is actually The Walking Dead.

    I thought it was great.

    Same here.

    And I didn't find it confusing, or at least any more confusing than they meant it to be. They doled out the information slowly, but they did dole it out.

    As Rick famously said in the comic book, "We ARE the walking dead!"
