Let me just say that it was my favorite episode so far this season. It was nice not to see Woodbury for once. That storyline is getting old & I can't wait until the final showdown.
With regards to the hitchhiker, perhaps if everyone in the vehicle was heavily armed they could've entertained the idea of picking up the hitchiker. But they weren't, and what if the hitchhiker was? That was the whole point of going on a run, to get supplies and more weapons, because they're weak, right? If I'm down to my last bullet, the last thing I want to do is pick up a complete stranger. Also, it's been how long since the zombie apocalypse? At this point, if you see someone alive, it's safe to assume that they're pretty bad ass or at the very least, tough and/or great at surviving, which probably means they're well armed. The last thing I'd want to do in a weakend state is pick up a complete stranger who could be a potential threat. Fear the living...
I have to wonder how well the group would've fared if Shane was the leader and Rick was dead instead.
