Can someone explain why the younger girl's shoe was at the scene of the walker attack when Daryl got there, but she was still wearing them as they walked down the train tracks?

Thanks, I was wondering that too and never could figure it out.

RE: the bus - maybe it just ran out of gas? Esp if the bullets hit the gas tank...just thinking out loud.

I figured Glenn had just passed out from exertion back at the prison, he is still in pretty rough shape getting over that virus.

Inconsistent writing.

The shoe was obviously foreshadowing that girl's death.  I mean, blatantly.  Could they have filmed it and decided later that she wasn't going to die?  The only other explanation is that the writers just gave the audience a big old middle finger for no good reason.

They were showing different segments out of sequence.  It illustrates that the survivors are all somewhat near each other and their paths keep crossing, but they have yet to link up.

I still find the bus confusing...  Even if it ran out of gas or a zombie cropped up in the back, someone would've gotten out.  There were too many people.  For me it was a sign of they wanted that tension for Maggie but didn't think the scenario out.  At times they do that stuff well, at other times they do this.  I find the good outweighs the bad in that regard, but when little stuff like that happens it does annoy me. 

I could buy the tank getting hit and it running out of gas for sure, but a zombie outbreak on the bus, and with as many exits as a bus has NOBODY got off it?  Even sick, those people got on the bus under their own power...  That's just not believable to me.

Glenn's all cut up, so that's why I figure the shell that took out the walkway probably put him down...  I thought it was awesome that, this whole time, he's back at the prison and everyone left him.  I thought that was the twist of the night really. :) 

The shoe thing, I figured it was from another kid.

Speaking of, what happened to all the other kids ultimately?  Probably never get answered.

So big middle finger to the audience, then.

You don't show a close-up of a kid's shoe, then in the very next scene show the exact same shoe close up on a living kid.  That's just dishonest.

Re:  the bus - who says somebody didn't get out?  There were only like 8 or 10 walkers in there.  The bus was fuller than that when it drove off.  Maybe half a dozen people got out the front before closing the door behind them.

True I suppose they could've closed the back up perhaps and nobody says anything since they're only looking for Glenn.  I don't think there were a ton of people on the bus though...  I don't think there were a ton of people left at the prison outside of the core people.  They mention numbers periodically but I don't recall if they ever say before the attack how many are left...  Makes me wonder if there's a way to do a headcount on how many should've been on the bus?  Some died on their way there too IIRC.

I like that they're having different characters team up so to speak, I think it makes for interesting stories and character arcs. I just hope they don't rush bringing the group back together because we all know in real life we can miss meeting up with people my just a few minutes etc...

I'd have to rewatch to be sure, but maybe their timelines haven't synced up yet.  If I remember, we left the psycho kid just a bit up the tracks from the zombie bitten, but not yet converted, stranger.  They were staring at the sign for Terminus. 

There's still the possibility of the kid going back down tracks and getting eaten by the bitten stranger, or the bitten stranger coming up track and then carrying her shoe back down before Beth and Daryl arrive on the scene.

Pretty cool episode...tense scenes with Rick, some fun with Professor Mullet and Big Red, and Crazy Cheese!

Rosita reminds me of the female deputy from Planet Terror, she rocks.

Loved Rick leaving the door cracked for the dead guy to turn and wreak havoc in the house...

Half the group on the way to Terminus now, the other half still roaming around. Guessing they will all get there by season's end?

Next week: more fun with Daryll and Beth...still worried for her

Definitely a good episode, I'm glad to see Abraham, Eugene and Rosita are pretty true to form from the comic.

Thought it was pretty lame myself. Would have been much cooler if the pointless invaders had all been a dream for Rick. Would have gotten the same point across.
