Rick had the horse idea first, but then got his horse killed, of course.

Oh and yeah I'll reiterate the Bob thing...  Darryl/Bob talked about his demons and Darryl pats him on the back, only to have Darryl, Tyrese, and Michone have to save Bob because he's hanging onto a half-drunk bottle of Old Crow like he's Elsa and it's the Holy Grail about to cross the seal (Matt will hate that reference).

Maybe she comes into contact with our good friend Phillip?

Or ends up with a role in the spinoff series.

I hadn't thought about that!  Could be the long term plan.

So far they've said the spin-off is a whole new thing...  or so sayeth Nicotero...  He's excited to explore new characters.  Maybe down the road, but at this stage I wouldn't expect any interaction with the TWD crew at all.

I was thinking the Governor angle too...  She may harbor a bit of resentment too, though I agree, Rick was sparing her.

Check out a movie called Choke, where she plays a stripper and takes various clothing off

And yeah I thought I read the spinoff was supposed to take place somewhere else in the country, like California or something.

You speak of gas and batteries, I could see tires dry rotting and being worthless in a few years.

I look for Carol to be right at the point of death by walkers and the Guv rescuing her. Hey and guess what he does not know who she is because they never met and she learns of his plans for the people in the prison. She would not betray Rick I think, but mainly for those girls.

Absolutely on the tires...  And hoses and belts...  Cars let sit for years rarely just pop back to life.  The older a car the better in this world.  And two modern mopar muscle cars in the show despite in one instance it being a clearly bad choice is suspect. ;) Musta paid for the cgi those weeks.

Don't forget that in the time since the outbreak...it's only been about a year and a half...two years tops.

Absolutely agree with this, especially about the old cars.  When I deployed in 2002, I left my truck at my mom's house.  I told my step dad to take it out and drive it to work about once a week just to allow the tires to roll over, belts to flex, and so the gas wouldn't just sit in the tank and turn to gunk.

However, I'll give TWD a pass on the dynamics of the cars just because I love the show and don't want to nitpick too much.  I appreciate that they have no electricity and that was one of the first things to go.  Once people stop working at the power plants, the power goes out.  The History Channel did a show a few years ago called "Life after People." Really good show and I think they said the lights might stay out 2-4 weeks if people weren't around before the fuel would run out and the automated systems would shut down.  Nuclear power would be a little different and might actually end with a nuclear meltdown because nobody was around to manage the cooling system for the fuel rods.

Good real world discussion, my friends at work and I discussed some of this recently. Whether it was an EMP that totally knocked out all electronics, the huge loss of people to run the power plants, service the grid etc. most things we take for granted would cease to work. I know they can't dwell too much on the details of why there's no electricity, where do they get gas from - and how is it still good; wouldn't part of it evaporate enough that it wouldn't have the chemical potency to work? And how after all this time, why aren't more walkers decomposing faster due to less 'fresh meat' for them to feast on?

At the end of the second season they of course showed the prison in the background. After that it was pictured like they roamed for months around it. I still can't get past that a deputy sheriff in the same state didnt know where the prison was, let alone no signs were seen or that it was only accessible by a dirt road. When Tyresse and Sasha came in they came in through a breach in high brick walls. Given that I would looking for ways to live there, but it is a show, with a bad set.

Just how long could wildlife that dont live in the ground on in the ground survive. Animals would need rest but these walkers never have to stop

In the comics Grimes was a deputy from Cynthiana, Kentucky, they are currently in Georgia.  On the show he's from King County, GA (which does not exist?). States have more than one prison, so I can give Rick a pass on that. The gravel road never made sense, though, nor does having a tree line so close.
