I also agree with the question why they have to kill off each new black guy like that

My theory on why they keep killing people is because in the books, Rick's group at this point isn't too big or strong - they are almost always outnumbered, so on the TV series they don't let the group seem dominant either.

The producers may also want to have a representation of other races on the show and are trying to represent the population of the state of Georgia to a degree (about 30% of that state is black), as that's where the location is set right now, while at the same time introducing new characters that are not in the books.

In today's politically sensitive society, maybe they're damned if they don't, damned if they do when it comes to race. When a white person is killed off, it's not talked about in terms of race (just like it really shouldn't be).  There's really not too many black people in the comics anyway, and T-Dog never was even part of it.  I liked his character though and didn't want to see him or Oscar die, but it's a show about death.  A lot of people are going to die.  Very few are safe regardless of their race.

True dat!!!  I think the only person safe on the show is Rick.

It'll be back Feb 10, and they announced the Talking Dead show will now immediately follow it and is going to be an hour long.

So many little things are coming to mind and I walked the finale again.

Axel - Has anyone bothered to ask what he was in the pen for? I mean come on, he could quite possibly be a pedophile.

The Governor lost six guns that night including Merle. How big is their little army? This is really moving too for me, as I hate them moving past the prison so quick? He is off his rocker now. Darryl needs to escape and get his signature crossbow back.

Just how much ammo do they have? This is getting crazy the amount of lead flying. And why wasn't the woods full of walkers after that firefight?

Have you read the books at all?  Just curious.

On Axel and being in the prison, I thought he said being in for drugs?  And the Oscar didn't seem to dispute that.

Guys in prison typically do not know what other guys are in there for, so Oscar probably had no clue one way or the other. Axel did say he was incarcerated for drugs, but take the word of a con for what it is.

There was definitely some creepiness to Axel when he was talking to Beth but then after Carol pulled him aside he made the comment about thinking she was gay.  When she said she wasn’t, he seemed a little more interested in her before she shut him down.  So I think there was a moment there where it could have gone one way then didn’t.  I think it wasn’t so much he’s a pedophile as, like he said, he hadn’t seen a woman in a long time and started with the one he thought the most available.

But here’s a fun tidbit; the chick that plays Beth?  She’s about 27.

That's like that Sabrina the Teenage Witch chick...  forget her name, but just saw her in a dismal Lifetime movie the other day.

Anyway, way older than a teenager IIRC, during the filming of her TV show.  Weirded me out she was that old.

AMC renewed the series for season 4, no surprise, but....Executive producer Glen Mazzara to leave zombie drama after Season 3


Amicable or not, it's not great news to lose executive producers two seasons in a row.  What is Kirkman or AMC's vision for the show?
