    My guess is it will be "Later," and be about a candy that nobody likes.

    My guess is that it will be called "and again" and that Glenn was killed, and the U.S. government covertly makes him an offer he can't refuse; they "keep his brain alive" and place it into a new, genetically bio-engineered body. (Non zombified of course)

    I'm still trying to figure out what it is we saw on the wall (blood, a crack, etc.). I'm thinking the obvious, that whatever it is, it's an indication that the wall is going to give. For one thing, Rick said the wall was sturdy, will last, and they should be safe. That guarantees that it's going to fail in some way.

    I really wish they would up their game a little. They have a huge herd of walkers trying to get in and nobody patrolling? If something happens and they start coming in during the night, they can overrun the town and nobody would know. You need people stationed on high points where the entire perimeter could be watched, a way to notify everyone if there's a breach, and a plan of action everyone follows.

    Some thoughts would be that in the houses, you can take out staircases. Walkers can't climb. A ladder to get to the 2nd floor of houses makes it much safer. Connecting the upper floors of the houses with catwalks or rope bridges so people can move from one to another would be helpful. Storing supplies on the second floors, keeping water up there.... They have a wall and are just leaving it at that. After all this time, they're still not being very intelligent about their survival.

    I thought it was blood or something dripping down from the guard/watch post where we last saw Deanna's son eating chips (I think?).

    I thought it was coming through the fence. Otherwise, why would it suddenly appear that low, on a seam (actually, two different seams IIRC)? If it were coming from above, it should have run down the length of the fence...

    The fence is leaning outwards?
    The position of those outside braces would support that.

    Then why is the (blood? goo?) coming from the seams?

    (And as has been discussed repeatedly, the position of the braces has nothing to do with reality, or else the zombies would have easily pushed the fence over shortly after they arrived! It's apparently all about making the neighborhood association happy.)

    I have a hard time hearing and understanding quite a bit of the dialog in this show so I usually watch with the captions turned on. I started watching this episode without them and after a few minutes I realized it so I started it over with them on. I completely missed the exchange that Michonne had with Maggie the first time around. Without the captions I would have had no idea what they were saying to eachother. Is it just my audio setup or are others having problems as well?

    Are we sure that it is?
    I have virtually no short term memory, so sorry of this is a smeeky question, but one would think they would have staggered any seams- even I would know to do that.

    A theory, totally in my own head, about the goo. Spoilered not because I have any real confidence it's true, but it may be true and ruin a later surprise.:
    Glenn's alive (boo!) and is pretending to be a zombie as he gets closer to the town. He's occasionally killing zombies up close with a knife or something, and that time he killed one right up against the fence, causing zombie goo to flow through the fence cracks. He's making his way over to the gate and going slow, trying not to get spotted as zombie food.

    I also watched it with captioning and was surprised that Maggie and Michonne's conversation was captioned at all, because from the audio mix and the camera work, it didn't seem like the director intended for us to hear that conversation. I wonder if it's one of those things where the conversation was scripted, but then in editing they decided to cut it and just show the two talking from a distance, but the captioners had access to the script, so they were able to put the dialogue in there that had actually been intentionally removed from the episode.

    Right, you weren't supposed to be able to hear that conversation clearly, you were seeing it from the mayor's perspective and she was just barely hearing it as background and not really paying attention to it. I only caught a few words.

    To me, it looked like blood was probably running down the outside of the wall, and then found a little crevice/hole and started running down the inside of the wall.

    Well, the conversation could be understood from the audio if you turned the volume way up and listened carefully. So it would need to be in the captioning. But the captioning could have used a note like "quietly speaking in background".

    Could someone recap that conversation? I'm not sure I got it all, and I don't have this episode saved.
