This week's just seemed badly written to me. The melodrama over "do we trust him or not" was strained. I did like Michonne kinda taking over.
I don't know how you "clear" Route 16. I didn't see any sign of walls or guards or anything else. Given that they drove down days ago, prior to the tornado, I don't know how they'd have any clue of the number of walkers there now.
The whole thing with the car plowing through dozens of walkers I think was meant to be cool, but came across as stupid. Brakes, maybe? How do you not wreck when the glass is covered in blood and guts? Arrow-straight road? In Virginia? Have they never driven through Virginia?
And then they drove by hundreds of walkers, leave the car, and have to kill maybe 15 or 20? Glenn machine-guns down about 8 of them and they're safe? The other two hundred walkers aren't attracted to the noise?
The flare was dude's partner, I guess it was meant to signal trouble or something. I don't know how Rick & Co found the others based off the flare. I'd guess it was a rendezvous point set by the two guys, but the one with Rick sure didn't seem to know exactly where he was going.
Just sloppy all around, IMO.
The flare gun in the face was pretty awesome, though.
