There are entirely to many commercials this show. Commercial break every 10 minutes? Its getting really annoying


Good opening, boring as hell middle, great ending.

So is lori the worst mother of the zombie apocalypse, or just the worst mother of all time?

Nice to see her being consistent though I guess, letting carl go wandering off in the dark when the house is on lockdown, after letting him go wandering off during the execution.

No doubt.

Great episode. Can't wait for next week.

Wow, that was fantastic. Loved the shot of Rick & Shane with the moonlit backdrop.

On the flip side what the fuck was up with the piano piece under the scene with Rick & Carl? One thing I love about the show is the sparse use of music, or at least very understated and this was the opposite of that.

Wow, Shane will be missed.

Was this the first time it was explicit that you don't have to be bitten to turn into a walker?

No. Didn't they come across someone who hung himself who was a zombie while hanging from the rope?

Also they pointed out that a couple dead zombies had no bite marks on them about 3 weeks ago.

So is it safe to go back through the last few weeks' threads and read the spoilers in them? Or was there anything about the season finale.

Also, John Bernthal is supposed to be on the David Letterman show tomorrow.

Shame becoming a zombie was the spoiler.

why would you read the spoilers now if you've already seen them?

Curiosity. Sort of a post-mortem so I can see exactly what would have been spoiled for me had I looked at them.

So did Rick know Shane would turn? If so, why didn't he knife him in the brain?

I feel like this show may have the balls to kill half its cast next week. Not based on anything I know, just guessing.

Well, maybe if good ol' Carl hadn't interrupted him, he would have done it.

Carl is a ninja or Lori is literally the worst mother in the world. Moments after locking down the house because Randall "escaped," Carl is free to wander around in the dark. This is after Sophia and Dale mind you.
great episode though.

No love for the shot at the end of all the zombies coming out of the forest? That was awesome.

But on the other hand she's also a terrible wife.
