Great episode too!
Great episode too!
I don't recall them being watched by someone in the comic besides woodbury, I know somethings are different in the TV show compared to the comic and I'm really interested in seeing who stalking Carol is.
Rick, on the other hand, is falling further and further away from humanity. Killing the prisoners or locking them out to let them die is a big step in character development for him. Lorrie was right in saying that Rick is not a killer. Not yet anyway. As things progress, Rick will start to believe that killing opposition is the easier path to take. And it will get easier for him to do each time, but it will still leave a mark on him. The last scene may have seemed 'weak', but in reality, it's a great forshadowing device. We get to see Rick starting to recognize the monster he's becoming, and how much he has to keep that hidden from those around him.
Sadly, what the survivors are missing right now is the Dale voice of reason character. Maybe that will be Andrea when she gets back to the team, but given how she's turned out lately, and is likely to respond when she finds out that Shane is dead and that Rick did it, I don't imagine her being the calm, rational one. They've somewhat steered Herchel away from that role lately, so I don't think it will be him either.
Ah what a great show, and what a great comic to build it from!
This episode was amazing, a lot better than the first one, I think.
I was not expecting Rick to do the things he did, specially kill the that white and black guy, hell, the white guy I think that was kinda obvious, but I wasn't expecting him to kill the skinny black guy. Once he killed those two, I actually thought he was going to kill the other black guy, the one who said that he never pledged for his life and will never do so. Overall, this episode was some serious, good, shit.
Now, about that part where we see someone snicking on Carol, is it okay to assume that that person might be from that city that has no zombies? That city that will appear next episode, it's possible no?
I think i just burst a gut laughing at the prisoners beating up walkers.

I don't think so. Only because in one of the previews we see the head guy of that safe city ask where the rest of Andrea's "group" went. If you watched The Talking Dead episode last night you saw an extra preview of the next episode, and it showed Merl in the car with Andrea when they were going to that safe city. So maybe it's Merl, and he is planning for revenge on rick. He won't tell the safe city people because those people with rescue rick and his group, so he is doing this recon all of this all on his own.
I did see the preview for the next episode when watching episode 2, but I didn't notice Merle, I noticed the head guy of that city, but he didn't see like Merle to me.
Also, that makes sense, if the people in the city, or the "boss" of the city, are/is looking for Rick and his group, the person who was watching Carol doesn't belong to that city. I wonder who that person might be...
Im living how Rick is changing just like the comics. So bad ass.
Only use spoiler tags if you are discussing things that havent aired either from somehow finding things ahead or reading from the comic books imo. I like to come here to talk about the show and the show only, it is called [TV] The Walking Dead afterall. But if anyone insists on spoiling things that are coming ahead from what happened in the comic use spoiler tags there
Rick surprised me in not letting the skinny black guy back inside, he seemed kinda harmless. He did come at Rick with a bat I guess but it was more of a shock of Rick slicing his friends head open, which was justified with how he was acting like its a joke and putting other people in harms way. I think Rick and the others shouldve tried to be a little nicer to the remaining prisoners, not saying they should allow them to move in with their block but at least leave on nicer terms. So you arent worried of these people ever getting upset at coming at you when you dont expect it, its bad enough worrying about the walkers no need to add humans to that list.
Sometimes I wonder how so many people got wiped out when you see the ease at which Ricks group can take out hordes of them at once. Its not like all of them are hand to hand combat trained.
With Shane and Dale dying in season 2 it symbolizes doing whatever it takes to survive (Shane) and keeping onto humanity (Dale) these two conflicting opinions have changed the group, they are now willing to do what ever it takes to survive while keeping onto their humanity within the group.
Everyone is seeming to change and become dark to those outside of the group and at times to eachother after realizing that zombies aren't the only threat.
