    Perhaps it will be an expedient way to end the "whose kid is it" storyline. The show needs screaming zombies, not screaming babies.

    Easily the most interesting character at the moment.

    I liked the actors playing the sleazeballs in the bar, and I liked Rick realizing that he can't be Jimmy Stewart during the Zombie Apocalypse. He has to kill or be killed, and no one gets the benefit of the doubt where supplies and safety are concerned. I like Rick so much more as a badass.

    Yes, pretty much all of this. I doubt Lori will die, even though the dude on Talking Dead outright said she dies. Then the host (I can't remember anyone's name) said, "He's just kidding". We'll have to wait and see.

    Watching now...whoa, this is actually a really solid episode so far! Supposedly this is the first episode of the series that is completely the work of the new showrunners and writing team. It's promising.

    Now that's what I'm talking about! Well worth watching last night! Lori was even tolerable, though irl I doubt she'd have made it out alive. Any thoughts on what they should have done with the impaled dude?

    Don't know if it makes me a horrible person or not, but in the scene with the impaled dude, I was thinking they should have just put a bullet in his brain. Safer than sticking around while zombies are swarming the place to attempt to saw his leg off (and even if it worked, sawing his leg off leaves him dead meat in the future. Hello, zombie apocalypse?) and kinder than leaving him to get torn to pieces.
    In other news, the writers have now taken it upon themselves to drive Glenn and Daryl, the only characters that I liked, off a cliff. Goddamn. It was such a promising first half hour of the episode, too!

    It would have been hard for me to put a bullet in his brain, but then, it'd have been hard for me to yank his leg off the iron fence, too! I'm surprised Herschel didn't shoot the guy whose face was getting eaten off, to spare him further pain. I guess he didn't want to make himself a target.

    Lori was much better last night! I hope Carol and Daryl are just forging a friendship and not a romance.

    They are totally making Glenn suck. I don't like Maggie anymore.

    Good episode! Plenty of zombies, plenty of non-zombie action, and another moral dilemma. All the stuff the show does best. My take on the guy stuck on the fence is that I'd have put a bullet in his head. They risked their lives and used up a LOT of ammunition to take a chance on saving him, and in their situation, a guy with one leg doesn't have a very long life expectancy anyway. I think in the bleak zombie apocalypse world, the sanctity of life would probably take a hit based on the miserable quality of life. I think scenarios like this would be treated similarly to keeping the elderly alive only to lay in hospital beds. The value of life also comes into play in this episode with the argument Glenn and Maggie had. Glenn thinks that being in love is making him soft, but in this world, what do you have to live for but love? It's not like you can have a fulfilling career or material wealth or anything else besides love that people strive for. It's like refusing to eat because it will make you sleepy and unable to guard your food.

    It looks like the new writers have a totally different take on Lori. Which is good, since she was pretty insufferable. They seem to have injected a bit of Lady Macbeth into her - that last scene where she's talking to Rick was great.

    Yep, overall that was a really great episode. Good job Walking Dead writing staff, keep it up.

    However, there were several things that bothered me; the scene with Carl inquiring whether the baby is a boy or girl and then wanted it named Sphia if it is a girl, dear god was that cheesy and probably unnecesary; they made Glen a coward, which overall worsens his character a bit, but hopefully he'll make up for it and eventually build up his courage as well as actually cementing his relationship with the farm chick.

    There were at least a few other annoying aspects, but I'm not going to gripe about all of them given that the episode was enjoyable.

    Presumably you watched this week's episode and loved that Andrea called out Lori for being a selfish, bossy cow?


    I didn't really start watching the show until a couple weeks ago, when I bought the first season Blu-rays and watched the first half of the second season in a Sunday marathon on AMC. I think if you watch them back-to-back-to-back you get a very different sense of how the narrative works, vs. watching one episode every week. They all flow quite well. There's always a new predicament, a new motivation, a new revelation, etc. to keep the story advancing.

    A lot of you seem to have been very annoyed at the first half of the second season ("The Walking Dead II: The Search for Sophia") because of a lack of "zombie apocalypse action". I don't get it! That's what separates The Walking Dead from the rest of the zombie productions ever done before! A zombie TV show has the freedom to explore characters to a depth and length you couldn't possibly do in a movie. The point of the show IS the human interactions and the shifts in motivations and alliances and petty politics and arguments and all that crap. It's exploring what people would do in that situation. The zombies are the backdrop, not the point.
