    I think they'll keep the last two prisoners around for a while. You knew that something was going to come to a head with that "lead" prisoner trying to act all macho around Rick. On another note, it was really dumb of Rick to run through the prison for that other prisoner. There was no guarantee that the cell block was clear. He easily could have ran into 10 walkers.

    Wow. The 2nd epidosde was just as good, if not better than the first. Did they do a writer overhaul again?

    Also, I feel like I've missed something concerning zombie virus works. If someone dies, no matter who they are, they are coming back as a zombie, whether they were bitten or not (like in Shane's case.) If someone gets bitten by a zombie, then they succumb to the virus even quicker, die and then turn?

    Yes, a bite or a scratch will turn them.

    I'm glad that they didn't.

    Rick started out with making the right decision (killing the prisoner that tried to get him killed) and then probably the wrong decision (trusting the word of the two surviving prisoners when they claimed they weren't in on that plan). I mean, is there anyone who has a shred of doubt the group won't live to regret allowing those two to stay alive?

    I think we extensively covered the fact that the pathology makes absolutely no sense over the course of last season. ;)

    I know it's gone away from the comics a little but in the comics the guy lives a bit longer, but with the way Rick has been early this season it makes sense as well. Just thought it coulda been built up longer. I can't complain too much though.

    Gosh, I didn't care for this episode at all. Seems like the plot dies when the crew gets stuck. Why would Rick go charging off after the prisoner who ran, only to leave him to the zombies?

    Maybe my biggest beef of the show this time around has been the previews. We're on the third round of previews that have highlighted a crashing helicopter, the Commissioner (as I think he's referred to) and his safe city, and Michonne. And with the exception of three minutes of screen time for Michonne, they have been nowhere to be seen. I'm guessing that we won't see Merle until the season 3.1 cliffhanger...

    I was thinking that myself, I would have just been like f-that, let him go he won't make it on his own. And how convenient was it that they ran that entire way and not one walker. The rest of the place is packed with them, but there nada.

    The Governor, that is unless the show changes his name.

    I'm thinking that it was Merle that was watching the prison, when Carol decided to practice on the dead walker.

    The group already has zombies to worry about, so why add a vengeful guy who already plotted your destruction to your worries? Rick was going to make sure one way or another that the threat was neatralized. Rick seems to have come to a conclusion within the last 10 months that showing mercy and/or taking half-measures doesn't work real well in this new world.

    Some of the old Rick slipped back in though when he spared the other guys.

    I'm sorry but the whole scene with Hershel "waking up" was a little over the top for me lol

    I know why Rick chased that guy, he didnt want a loose cannon running around the prison. On top of the group, he has a pregnant wife and kid to worry about. They dont know why those guys are in there. If you have read the comics, you know they have plenty to worry about.

    I worry about the white guy left saying he is only in for pharmaceuticals.

    The scene with Maggie and her father alone in the cell was totally pointless.

    Maybe Lori whored around with one of the zombies. Kidding aside, I think the writers want us to believe some stuff went down during the months they skipped. Michonne and, her name escapes me, seemed to have developed a commraderie during that time as well.

    Well, I was only off by 3+ episodes on the return of Merle.

    So, the Governor wants to keep babe women in the compound but not semi-trained soldiers, should be fun for the next couple of episodes...

    Overall I really didn't care for the episode, was kind of slow at times. Next weeks looks good.

    Since they don't know about the prison I'm wondering who it was watching Carol outside. Maybe that's the person that causes next weeks havoc.

    So let me get this straight. A civilian militia is able to sneak up on a group of trained soldiers (who are probably constantly on the look-out for any approaching walkers) and take all seven of them out before one of them has the chance to even get one shot off? :rolleyes:

    It almost looks like it was the two living prisoners who opened the gates, but I may be reading too much into it.

    Yeah, that annoyed me, too. Of course, these are National Guardsmen, so their training may have been spotty, but still. It's not like they were caught unaware and completely standing in the open...

    National guardsmen will still have had a lot more training than any of the civilians. I just find it very hard to believe they could have been snuck up on so easily, especially considering they would have been on high alert for any attack by Walkers.
    If we assume that the Walking Dead universe correlates with a real world, wouldn't there be a good chance those soldiers had actual combat experience overseas? I believe like a quarter of the men and women deployed in Iraq are/were National Guardsmen.

    They are grossly exaggerating the skill level of regular folks.
    I had to chuckle at Andy Greenwald's quip about the apparent survival rate of Olympic grade archers. The amount of master marksmen with the bow and arrow does appear to be absurdly high and is somehow even more ridiculous than all the dead eye shooters with (hand)guns.

    They didnt really sneak up on them. They were pretty far back. How could they have heard them from that far back? Being in the military doesnt give you super hearing. They were several hundred yards back it appeared.

    It's a TV show, everything is grossly exaggerated. If they didnt grossly exaggerate the skills of everyone, everyone would be dead and the show would have ended like the third episode.
