    Michonne was just diffusing the situation so that it could be discussed in a more rational manner at a later time after cooler heads had prevailed. If Rick had been allowed to continue like that, there's no question that Deanna was going to banish him, and that wouldn't be a good thing for Rick's crew, because then they'd be forced to decide between staying in Alexandria without Rick, or abandoning the safety of Alexandria to go with Rick. And we already know from multiple people in this episode that they desperately want to stay in Alexandria.

    Imagine both. Gosh what a way to go. Sending a fax to Cleveland (reference from last ep) and smoking a cigg. :thumbsdown:

    And that still might happen, but at least nobody got shot.

    At this point, I'm not sure who would go with Rick if he was banished.

    Just a few minutes before, Michonne had been in the woods and had flashbacks to what she used to be like, the constant anger and fear and need to fight. And I think she realized that she much prefers the version of herself that is comfortable leaving the sword hanging above the fireplace. She doesn't want to be unhinged like Sasha. She wants to be civilized, and Rick was on the verge of causing them all to lose their shot at civilization.

    That was exactly what I told my daughter when I saw the fire in the distance. Morgan.

    Are we supposed to believe that she didn't also take a similar statement from Glenn? I can't imagine that Deanna wouldn't be interested in hearing his version of the story, and I also can't think of any reason why Glenn wouldn't agree to tell her his side of the story.

    Hmm, interesting. Would he be forced to leave the baby ? I could see Carl being able to make up his own mind and staying (b/c of the girl).

    Didn't we see Deanna interviewing Glenn on camera also?

    Not that I can recall. We saw her interviewing Nicholas, and that was intercut with Glenn telling his story to someone offscreen, who later turned out to be Rick.

    I would still assume that she interviewed Glenn as well. And Eugene.

    Add me to the camp that thought Michonne's knocking out Rick was going too far and out of character for her and their relationship.

    She could have just stood between him and the crowd and yelled at him to get his attention.

    If Deanna is as good at reading people as she says, then she must know that nearly every word out of Nicholas' mouth was a lie.

    I agree that she surely listened to Glen's version. Also that she has known the liar guy for a long time, and should have already built in suspicion of him. Unfortunately she hasn't known Glen very long.....

    In a lot of apocalypse stories, they don't have enough food to feed prisoners. This town seems to have enough food, so maybe prison would be doable. Also, since the doctor is drunk every time we see him, how valuable is he really? If they put him in jail and dried him out that would take care of both problems. Unless he's enough of a jerk to refuse to work if he can't be with his family. Then kill him.

    I can't imagine them taking his baby from him. Carl could possibly want to stay with Carol and Michonne, but I can't imagine them letting Rick leave with the baby and not going along. And Daryl would go with him no matter what. And, as Rick pointed out, it would be a mistake to let even a few of them go after they know the whole layout of the town and all the weaknesses.

    Yes, but does she want to believe it's a lie. Nicholas paints her son as a hero who was left for dead by the evil new people, while Glenn paints her son as an idiot who panicked. An idiot who confessed to causing the deaths of others due to his cowardice.

    It's easier for a mother to believe the lie.

    We saw Glenn telling his story intercut with Nicholas telling his story. And I think we were meant to think that both of them were the filmed versions of their debriefing with Deanna. But then as the scene played out, only the Nicholas version was being filmed, while the Glenn version was him sitting on the porch telling Rick his version of the story.

    Does anyone else find it curious that Austin Nichols was in this episode but didn't really do anything?

    No idea who that is. What part did he play?

    He was the other son standing behind Deanna in the house. He is a pretty well known character actor who I don't think you have around unless his role gets bigger down the road.

    I just got around to watching Talking Dead. I just started watching this at the end of last season--it always seemed like it would be lame--but it's actually pretty good. I was amazed at how articulate and cool Carl was and I love the girl from Odd Couple as a super fan. She's amazing. :up:

    Funny, I thought the exact opposite. Seems to me He and Carol are the only sane ones!

    Pissed me off when Rick got knocked out while the others just looked on.
