    Good Valentines Day fun !!!!

    I like the show and I enjoyed the episode. Very shocking early, especially when the boy died. Sad to see Alexandra Breckenridge go. Kind of, Glenn like, annoyed a the Carl "Fake out"

    This episode was like one of those movies where unlikely things happen and everyone is saved at the last minute.

    Carl really needs to stop getting shot.

    At first I thought that weapon that they recovered was a rocket propelled grenade (RPG) launcher.

    But now I see that it is a magic ray explosion gun.

    Firepower saves the day. Twice.

    The first save was fun. Glenn's... I'm no expert, but it seemed kind of dark and far away for nailing all the walkers around Glenn (but not Glenn).

    So they stood next to the pond in broad daylight having a conversation about their plans. Then started walking to the wall. Then it is pitch black night and they are no closer to getting to the wall than they were before?

    Lots of running into the middle of throngs of walkers.

    I think this show may finally have passed me by.

    Kinda risky launching an RPG in to open water but what the heck. Either way both special effects with it were nicely done.

    If by nicely, you mean worst RPG special effect ever, then I agree completely.

    Carl's gonna look great with an eye-patch, it'll go nicely with his long hair and cowboy hat.

    Overall I liked the episode. At least a lot happened and we weren't left with cliffhangers. Well, except for Carl but it seemed likely he would recover, which is kinda dumb. I just can't see how you survive a gunshot going right into your eye from just a few feet away. But of course, it's a show about zombies so sometimes you just have to roll your eyes and move on.

    I thought it was an interesting way to kill the zombies near the end whenever they could have pretty much done the same thing when they were all contained in the quarry. :confused:

    For a second there I thought here comes the sadistic irony I expect from this show - bring Glenn back to life only to immediately kill him again. This show has developed a comical parody twin of itself within the show. After being desensitized to all the zombie stuff there's a certain sport to tuning in just to see how outrageously pulp the creators will get with the path of the story.

    Were they far away? I thought they were at the top of the wall right above him, which would give them a pretty good angle to shoot zombies walking towards him.

    While watching it - I thought that entire sequence with Jesse and the kids and Carl getting shot in the eye was a dream sequence or Rick hallucinating.

    Mostly because I found it hard to believe that Michonne, Rick and Carl would have just stood there while the others were getting attacked.

    Also... Really? You are going to trust Judith to THAT guy?

    That was silly, to me. I mean, why not just throw a match? Even assuming it would work now you've used up one third of your ammunition.

    I think the idea is that the angle of the shot was such that it ruined the eye but the bullet didn't actually enter the skull, it ricocheted off the eye socket and out.

    Greg Nicotero was on Talking Dead and he said
    that it was bone fragments that destroyed the eye itself
    That seems weird to me but whatever. They did show a super-creepy/realistic Carl dummy on TD. It must be so fun to work on Walking Dead if you're a SFX nut.

    And no one mentions the excellent way they had us all going about Negan to off him like that in the first few minutes?

    Negan wasn't there. Those were his underlings.

    Herndon,...
    Glad to see that Morgan (seems to be) coming around to Carol's way of thinking.

    On the other hand, the 'doctor' was possibly going to convert that Wolf until Carol made it a moot point.
