That's because you're evil though.  I guess one of my rifle scopes is technically a long distance monocle.

"You look like you been on the road a while.  Let's get fix you a plate"  Cannibals - fatten them up a bit.  Maybe all of the food at the mortuary was a trap/way to fatten them up before dining on them.  Just floating a theory.........

Fattening people up to eat them would be stupid.  If you have food it'd be far more efficient to eat it.

I'm with you.  It's not like you have a few candy bars and some soda and boom, instant fat anyway.  The cannibals wouldn't benefit from this in such a short period of time. I'm still not convinced the black car was Terminus.  Their game seems to be wait for survivors, not go kidnap them.  Maybe they had to resort to this because pickings have been slim?  I still can't get over the lack of security.  A rival group or pack of zombies could walk right in on that place.  And where the hell is everyone? Maggie and company need to be way more on guard.

Looking at us being at the end, my 3 most likely to die characters are:

-Carol
-Beth
-Bob

I have a different reasoning on each one...  I'll probably be wrong because other than Herschel I haven't guessed much right.

I'll give you Bob (he seems pretty expendable), and maybe even Beth (although I think she's probably safe), but you really think they'd kill off Carol in the finale? After that last episode she was in, and with whatever issues between her and Rick, and her and Daryl? She's become a fairly-interesting character, and I think they have more stuff for her to do in the future.

You're right.  Only George R.R. Martin kills off characters just when they're getting interesting.

If it makes you feel any better Jesse, I have a monocle packed in my bug-out bag.

I laughed for 5 full minutes at this one...thanks!  :D

I was thinking more along the line of ritualistic/psychotic as opposed to Plane-Crash-in-the-Andes-type-situation.......

I was thinking about this earlier...I wonder if cannibals would/could survive in the zombie apocalypse.  They've complicated things by saying everyone's already infected.  Obviously if you eat someone who was bitten, the virus is in accelerated mode and could turn you into a zombie via digestion.  But if the virus automatically accelerates once someone is dead, would it also accelerate within the body parts that are chopped off?  At the very least I think you would need to keep the host alive for as long as possible to prevent an acceleration in any of the pieces you eat.  And I certainly wouldn't trust cooking the meat to kill off the virus.  Seems like a very risky and unlikely way to survive - rituals or not.

That's actually WHY I find the concept of offing Carol to be interesting, Matt...  She's just getting interesting, her main issue (Tyrese) is wrapped up now...  She has some Rick/Darryl ties too of course, but I could see them dumping Carol, maybe at the hands of the bikers?  Another reason for Darryl to turn on them.

Bob I hate saying him because he's boring, but he just seems likely.|

Beth, I kind of have the same rationale as Carol, where she just got interesting and boom, she's dead.  Kind of similar impact on Darryl mentally.  I dunno.

Not sure who else...  I keep thinking Maggie or Glenn, more to the Maggie side, but I picked my three and I'm sticking with them.  I'm sure I'm wrong though, yeah.

I've got a gut feeling that Carol and Tyreese will be the deus ex machina of this episode. They'll show up out of the blue to save someone's ass.

And I wouldn't be all that surprised if Michonne bites it. The way they've been playing up the bond between her and Carl this season, it seems like maybe they're setting her up for a really shocking death to get people talking.

Eh, I don't really care who dies as long as Maggie isn't one of them. Which means she's probably good as gone.

I've felt like Michonne's not been played up much as the grand character she's supposed to be.  So that's the only thing that keeps me from picking her.

I could see the Carol/Tyrese saving someone angle though because by my estimation they're behind EVERYONE else at this point. (Maggie/Glen group at Terminus, Rick/Michonne/Carl behind them, Bikers/Darryl behind them, Carol/Tyrese behind them).

Wonder what happened to those other kids at the prison that were with Lizzie and her sister?  They ran back into the prison iirc?  That's something nobody really has acknowledged at all.  Just assume they're toast.

It could be the ultimate Shipper moment.  Daryl and the d'bag gang head into Terminus, Daryl spots Carol and yells "Claimed!"   ;D

I don't want to do this, and I won't even say it out loud, but.......

N----!

Or at least something related to him.

I know it's way too early and I'm not right, but I have my reasons for thinking it.

Beth and Daryl were getting too chummy. I think she bites it.

Tasha Yar screams cult to me. My guess is the Terminus group rounds up wandering walkers as food. Also explains why there aren't zombies and why the gates aren't securely closed or guarded.

Are you thinking this is the Hilltop?  I don't think they've caught that far up yet.
