What a great ep, plenty of tension and I certainly didnt expect that to happen at the end

Great episode last night.  I was waiting for Rick's pair to drop and I certainly think they did.  I was thinking he'd swing in Shane's direction, while at the same time, I think we also saw Shane come back towards Rick a little bit.

One person that drives me crazy is freakin' Dale.  That dude is like a middle school girl who wants to start drama.  It's like being at work when I'm watching him on TV.  I grant that he's a voice of reason, but seriously dude....

Great show!  Nice to see some new twists that they'll be having to deal with if/when they leave the farm.  Ya Lori's car ride decision was a bit...dumb.  Skinny as a twig she is.  Actress used to look kinda hot on Prison Break. 

Talking dead was great as well after the show.  Dave Navarro kept egging on the director dude to put in more zombies in each episode.

I agree with Laurie's dumb**** move to go after Rick - it made no sense.  And did it even occur to anyone to check Herchel's daughter for scratches?  My first thought when they were at the barn and they pulled her mom off of her was "Check the bitch for scratches!"

I have always been team Rick.  As a woman - he is definitely the type of man I would want looking out for me and my children.  Laurie needs to be more decisive is supporting Rick and distancing herself from Shane.  I always felt like Rick had a set, unlike Shane who keeps them out and swings them around all of the time and tries to make everyone sniff them, Rick knows when to tuck them in his drawers and when to whip them out.  Rick was more of a man for putting Sophia down than Shane could ever hope to be.

I think this is key.  For the sake of the group, and Rick as their "leader," it was probably best that he was the one to pull the trigger on Sophia.

Trying to remember if the bar thugs were killed by head shots. If not could they come back as walkers? I am sort of the belief that the walker stratch or bite might kill you, it is death that turns one into a walker, which I think was the way it was in the graphic novel.

The fatter one was shot three times I believe, twice in the chest and Rick did a finishing shot to the head. I only remember him shooting skinny dude once.

I think it's been established that only a bite from a zombie will make you turn into a zombie...as opposed to being scratched.

I do know the comicestablished that all recently dead with intact brains will become zombies.

Great episode...  Great series...  I swear, this show keeps your heart pounding.

Loved the tension in the bar with the Phillyphucknuts.

Don't think I want anyone that fat in my group though unless we're keeping him along as bait at some point.  It's like driving a Humvee around...  It costs too much to fuel it, so leave it behind and find something more economical.  And he's got sex on his mind?  Seriously this guy wasn't getting laid before the zombie apocalypse, now that it's here he thinks he's Don Juan?  Huh?

Thank you Tracy, for the testical swinging comment.  Kind of disturbing but gave me a laugh and I'll never see Shane in one of his tantrums quite the same again.

That's the only reason to keep a fat guy in your survivor group....or a low caliber pistol (so you can shoot someone in the leg to ensure you are faster than they are).

Maybe he thinks his odds are a little better than before.  After all, there isn't a lot of competition left...  ;)

My only bitch about Sunday's episode was Lori.  It was the Kim Bauer vs the Mountain Lion moment of the series.  Completely unnecessary.  She's one of my least favorite characters on the show on a normal day but when she makes a dumb**** move like that?  I can't even be concerned for her.

I agree with you there.  The only concern/interest I have in Lori is what position/risks will she put Rick (and therefore Carl and the rest of the group in).  The main reason Rick went in to town was because he knew he was going to need Herschel to delivery Lori's baby.  Speaking of that - why hasn't Rick gotten pissed at Shane about being with his wife?  Is he trying to keep the peace or just keeping it in his back pocket for now?

I thought Rick said something about Lori and Shane and kind of burried it.  Like, he understood because they thought he was dead after being left in the hospital.  Didn't he even thank Shane for taking care of Lori and Carl?

I have a feeling that's something that's going to pop back up in the future, though.  Like, just when the gang doesn't need any more drama, Shane will turn into a jealous bitch and screw someone over.

I do remember him having the conversation w/Lori about it - and how he understood.  I don't recall Rick talking to Shane about him being cool with it - Shane is still too hot-headed and hot-to-trot for Lori - and the baby.  I certainly don't think Shane is cool with any of it. I do recall Rick thanking Shane for taking care of his family - but I thought that came well before the confession of the affair - but I certainly could be wrong.
