    To use Glen as live bait was one of the stupidest things I have ever seen in a TV show! Even if they had a mechanical winch it would have been incredibly reckless but an old rope across a bar and an old sprinkler or faucet? They are in a farm surrounded by woods, they couldn't have used a chicken, bird, squirrel, ANYTHING ELSE??

    What's funny is that they didn't decide to use a horse to help until after the rope was on the well zombie.

    I thought I also had seen gills on the well zombie ... I'll have to take another look to confirm ...

    ETA: the group was looking down the well and one asked "How long do you think it's been down there?" and the blonde or the Sheriff's wife said "Long enough to grow gills!" But that was more as a joke, because when the zombie came up, it was just bloated. It's pants were also dry, which was an oversight. [Gov. Rick Perry] OOPS! [/Perry]

    Also, the last shot of a panicky Glenn in the well just before he emerged, clearly showed the zombie to NOT have the rope around it. Yet in the next seconds, with a screaming Glenn safely out, it seems that he managed to maneuver the rope around the zombie at the last second.

    Oh well. If I can accept the whole zombie apocalypse premise, then I can accept that. ;)


    "Old sprinkler or faucet"? :confused: Are you referring to the pump? We used to have two of those water pumps to get water from the earth below our garden of our 100-year-old property where I grew up. The first bucket was always dirty, but after one or two buckets the water was not bad (for not being treated by a water treatment plant). I would imagine that any zombie cooties would be naturally filtered by the earth before it came up the pump.

    A suggestion was floated here that Maggie (farmer's daughter) may have known the well was poisoned and intentionally directed them to use that specific well. I disagree, as she was asked about the "water situation" and simply responded that there were five wells, which she pointed out, and the closest one was that particular one, which they used for the cows, but also said that the water would be just as pure. If she knew that there was a zombie in the well, then you would expect her or her family to have covered up the obviously broken boards where the zombie had fallen through.

    Let's try to remember that all these references to articles and material outside the show must be spoiler tagged.

    Thanks!

    If you are talking about his post from EW, that didn't have a single SHOW spoiler. If it had said, "Due to budget concerns we had to kill off Shane...", that would be a spoiler. But that blurb johncv posted only talked about the change in showrunners, and did not have a single word related to plot or story. It talked about budget (without ANY reference as to how it might affect the show), and the challenge of taking a comic to the screen. Again, without any reference to plot.

    I vote no spoilers in that blurb. I do agree erring on the side of safety is a good thing, but common sense can rule too.

    Right, and I've seen that article. But that doesn't even come close to saying that they had a designed and finite season arc as you previously asserted.

    And Robert Kirkman said that when they were writing, they knew the structure of the season (complete with mid-season break). So what we're seeing is what they planned AFTER they knew it would be 13 episodes with a break after #7.

    Just thought I'd add that someone needs inspect the rest of the wells if they are the open type. Make sure no other walkers have managed to fall in. I'd also recommend something more substantial than the thin wood they used to cap that well.

    They showed a 'making of the well walker' segment on Talking Dead. Pretty cool! They also mentioned gills on the show, but not in the 'making of' bit.
