That was one of my least favorite episodes yet. Great for Carl to get schooled and mature a little by the end, and I liked the suspense of what has happened to Rick up to the end. But the Michonne part of the story was ridiculous. How does she just walk along, bare armed with hoardes of zombies and they can't sense her? I assumed she did that before at some distance - it's not like zombies following someone makes other zombies uninterested. Case in point, in the exact same episode there's a third zombie coming for Carl. If she had some zombie guts on her or was a little further away I could see it, but they way overplayed the zombie-pet card.
And how are the two zombies she's walking so domesticated already? I thought her first two eventually settled down after a long period of time, but these guys just automatically stop going after her because they have no teeth or arms? Hunh? Do the zombies "realize" they can't hurt her and are therefore thinking at some level? The two actors playing those zombies were ridiculously bad as well. They just stroll along like they're walking through the mall. Almost every other zombie is staggering, limping...at least some hint of disablement and base instinct. These two guys looked like they were just out for a nice walk around the neighborhood.
Super sloppy writing and acting, and unacceptable give it's a mid-season premiere. I'm going to be hugely disappointed if they continue to half-ass this going forward.
