    The geography sure seems off. The hospital crew is in Atlanta, but the church we last saw Rick & Co at is near Terminus which appeared to be in the neighborhood of Macon. That's 80-ish miles, a long way in the land of the zombie apocalypse.

    My new theory about who is behind Daryl coming out of the woods is Beth, Carol, and Noah.

    The creepy officer told Beth that they were out that far because they had a lead on supplies or something like that. My guess it was just bad luck on Beth's part that they found her at that time.

    Remember the boy said that it was both him and his father but the hospital crew said they could only save one and chose the boy because the father was strong. It's fairly obvious that they were going for the weak ones to keep them under their thumb.

    That is why I assume, if it was intentional, Carol allowed herself to be caught instead of Daryl.

    I assumed suicide.

    Yes, bad luck. Both that they stumbled across her, and that they stumbled across her when they had a new opening for Female Companion (after the Whale Rider's suicide attempt).

    Ditto. The pacing was off and there seemed too few people in the hospital for it to be viable. It wasn't so much what was there as what wasn't. It just seemed like it was written and directed very differently than most of the series, certainly the episodes this season. Not so much "bad" as it was "off".

    I don't have any problem with the idea or concept of this episode, just the execution.

    Exactly. It was just poorly done, all around.

    Exactly, I like Beth well enough, I don't mind a diversion, but the tone and execution was so out of sync with the excitement and quality that came before. There's introducing new characters and there's completely dropping all the characters you, basically, watch the show for. I also don't expect many/any of these to be around for long.

    This episode almost felt like a spinoff introduction.
    I hated it.

    The house Beth and Darryl found was well stocked and laid out like a trap. My theory is that Dawn and her crew have traps like this set up around the city. They check it out every once in a while, flush out the people, and capture the girls for their rapey pleasure.

    Wasn't that house like some cabin in the middle of the woods? Seems awful random and very risky to be laying traps that far out.

    Yep, I'd be shocked if that wasn't the case, cause it seemed obvious (to me) that that's what will happen.

    I didn't mind the episode, I like viewing how others survive. I was also pretty sure after last weeks ending that it would be a flashback episode regarding Beth and last weeks wouldn't continue for another week or two.

    I'm liking Beth's character. When she tried escaping with gun a-blazin', that was an evolution in her character (learned from Daryl and now perfected with practice). Now she even wields a forceps and is ready to kill humans! :eek:

    I thought they were at a funeral home when Beth got taken.

    It is amazing how Carol has gone from battered wife and doting Mom in season 1 to a badass we all think will hand Dawn her ass.

    How did the patrollers get out of the hospital to their cross patrol cars? Was it stated clearly? It would have to be either the stairs, a fire escape, or a rope, right?

    Why didn't Beth take the same route that the patrollers take (why would they need to tie towels together?), and why did she not take a car?

    I disagree that Gorman would take over, he's basically lazy. WHy be responsible if he gets what he wants? He may be thinking of taking Dawn out, but as long as he has a toy and doesn't have to make decisions, why would he?
