    The episodes needed a change of pace other than another shoot-out or losing a cast member. Now and then, an episode goes into "quiet and reflective" mode, with themes from foraging to team drama. I agree that it wasn't exciting, but if you're looking for constant action, you would think you would find it in a zombie apocalyptic soap opera. If you subtract the zombies, what do you really get in the end?

    My favorite scene in last episode was when the group kept walking down the road ignoring the zombies a few yards behind them. Tired and exhausted, you didn't know which group is really the walking dead, the zombies or survivors. Later when they reached the barn, Rick pointed out a war story, symbolic of the previous scene, that in order to survive, you have to put it in your head that you've been long dead before you truly die. This is the first time in the show any character phrased "the walking dead" as part of a sentence.

    Last night (S5E11?): Interesting episode. It establishes Aaron's character a bit more.

    Again, another episode where you're on edge much of the time wondering if something is going to go down. Also, Rick's responses might seem a bit over the top, except if you're a long-time watcher you can recall that inevitably EVERY ONE of these opprtunities has gone bad. In that sense, his response seems entirely natural.... and Carol backs him up on that.

    Also good to see some members of the group speaking up more with their opinions.

    I found the episode a bit confusing. I think they stretched out the attempt to build tension a bit too much. I didn't like how the RV just disappeared when they hit the zombie pack (so they just cut and ran?). And then the writers completely gloss over how the RV troupe found the guys partner and how they all reconvened in that warehouse place.

    Finally, they play the sounds of laughing children outside the gates, but the "next week's episode" trailer shows no sign of any community members. The place looks empty in all the clips. WTF? Was everybody hearing things?

    Add the fact that none of the photographs showed any either, and the one that was supposed to be a group photo just happened to not come out right...

    I predict the episodic death forecast based on the proximity of black males surrounding each other; As soon as I saw Tyreese and Noah sitting next to each other in the car, I knew this wasn't going to end well.

    Also, how come T-Dog didn't get some pretentious, overly drawn-out death montage prior to him officially biting the bullet.

    He may of been a minor, throwaway character on the stage, but he was always number one in our hearts...

    my prediction for this new development: after everyone gets acclimated to the community, someone from the group is going to be exiled which will force the remainder of the group to decide if they're going to stay or leave with their "family."

    speaking of race, i get the subtle impression there may be a white supremacist undertone in this community. i haven't seen any non-white citizens in their little town and they supposedly exiled people who didn't fit in. i wouldn't be surprised if they try to get rid of glenn, michone, noah and any other non-white members. the leader said that she is amazed people in rick's family who come from so many different backgrounds are able to get along.

    This is exactly what I thought. He was brought up to face horror, not shy away from it and not take the easy path. That's why he had such trouble getting to the point of being able to let go, and that's why his decision to stop listening at the end is so important.
