I can now take this moment to go neener neener neener, I was right about Judith.
I was glad when she turned up, and it was a cool reveal I thought. Well done.
Darryl and Beth were less interesting... Darryl going into moody mode gets old. I know girls like him, and I like his badassery, but the attempts to make him the brooding heartthrob need to stop. Stick with the badassery more. A guy like that isn't gonna sit staring at the fire all down about life while Beth, friggin' BETH, wants to go track down their friends? Darryl would be the one taking the tracking seriously and looking.
Loved showing how Tyrese's strength with the hammer just disintegrates walker heads... It's awesome and plays into what I said all along that if you were a weaker person that's sticking in a skull. If you're a big dude like Tyrese you're just exploding heads like you're Gallagher and Walkers are watermelons!
Glenn's predicament was awesome and unexpected... A major surprise. He got conked out by a shell I guess, and he's just stuck there. I dug how they paired him with Tara, and she actually nutted up a little there at the end too. I felt like he rebounded pretty quick from the Herschel news, but you can only do so much in a short time frame.
Carol, great way to explain her character away... I can easily see her having to off Lizzie. That it gets out of hand in some capacity and she recognizes it and makes the hard decision ultimately. Now she's back, and with the last person she should've been with but with the person who probably needed her the most ironically.
Next week looks... odd...
Was this new stronghold in the comics? Just curious. I'd not heard anyone say anything about this place before is all.
The new characters at the end weren't expected quite so soon. Since I've not read the comics all I know is they're important. Curious to see how they'll jive with the existing characters though, and where they came from. I'm guessing they were coming because of the cannon fire and the smoke?
One thing I didn't like about this episode, and probably the only thing I didn't care for, was the bus... it's closed up, but there's tons of zombies on it. Why is the bus just stopped there? Nothing SEEMED to stop it. Only a few people seemed completely devoured. Nothing seemed to happen to anything except like everyone just fell asleep and got eaten or turned. That just doesn't seem logical and was just a tension builder without much thought put into it.
Nice to see Bob/Maggie/Sasha going along but basically doing nothing major. I feel more than ever that Maggie/Glenn's relationship is nearing an endpoint. They're my guess on upcoming mains to get offed. Lizzie isn't a main really, but she'd be my next bet.
Other than the bus puzzle, I thought it was great... Lots of suspense, lots of logic and detail. I liked it a lot. One of my favs this entire season.
Talking dead was good but the girl who plays Tara is... chatty.
Whoever that guy was with the squawkbox show was really interesting though. I liked his points of view on things.
