That scene where we see Rick's group leave then it stays on the church sign for a bit and then the Termites come into the frame was awesome.

I liked the scene, but they never outright say that's what happened...  Like I say, I want to believe that's the mode of thinking.  Rick did it on purpose.  Rick's the smarter guy, etc.  But Rick's group doesn't ever discuss "Hey, we'll leave, leave these guys here as bait, and come back and trap the termites" either...  It's such a quick turn-around I tend to think that lends itself to the "Rick did it on purpose" theory, but again they don't outright say that's the plan...  Actually Rick talks about catching them at the school, no?

I'm still going with the idea Rick used Carl & Co. to lure in the Termites and corner them, regardless, but it's a topic I'd have liked to have seen brought up on TD or something...  wasn't a good group to bring it up with either though.  Only Garreth would know I suppose.  Slash was kind of a dickhole.

Someone did say it was a risky plan.

Fourth-worst episode of Grey's Anatomy ever.

Raised by Hershel...trained by Daryl.  ;D Can we get a Beth Greene action figure already?

I enjoyed this, definitely a departure from the norm, but always interesting to get a glimpse into other survivors and the twisted worlds they create for themselves.

Dawn/Don - (no idea what they were saying all episode) what kind of an appalingly soulless human do you have to be to facilitate the institutionalized rape of your fellow women? What a loathsome POS, hope she gets the end she desevres.

Seemed kinda weird that she would be the one still in charge, and exempted from any of the other brutality. But I guess that was sort of the point, that they had this bizarre "system" that everyone observed, although the whole thing was seemingly starting to veer out of control.

I sort of wanted to like the doctor at first but by the end it seemed like he was just as complicit as the rest, and certainly motivated by his own self interest.

Was the kid from Richmond the same actor who played the young Chris Rock on that show a few years back? He seemed really familiar, as did Dawn/Don, but I could not place her either.

That was indeed Everybody Hates Chris.  Kinda pulled me out of the episode.

It was weird to see everything so perfectly clean, and all the equipment up and running.  And it didn't seem like a system that'd hold together very well.  Not with so few jailers.  Class warfare among a dozen people - not very stable.

Heck of a twist at the end, though!

I must be in the minority because I really enjoyed that episode. There was just something about seeing these ******** who think they know what's best for everyone and claim that they're protecting everyone, and then watching Beth tear their stuff up with relative ease because she actually HAS been through things. I enjoyed the flashback to that random episode where she was a cutter too.

I'm honestly kinda bummed it looks like we won't have a conclusion for a few weeks. Great cliffhanger ending there, although really the whole season has been really good with them. Has me wondering what happened there, and how it all ties back to Daryl in the woods with Michonne. I'm thinking Carol and Daryl run across Lil Chris Rock at some point and send Carol in to infiltrate and bring him back...

Was I the only one hoping to see the Vatos from Season 1 again since we were back in Atlanta?

That sounds about right.  Remember the second half of last season we jumped around a lot and that mixed the timeline up quite a bit.

I don't know of I buy that the group was only in the train car for one day.  They basically are saying there was no time lapse between the end of last season and the beginning of this season. I assumed they were there for a little while at least.

No food no water - they weren't in the train car for more than 2 days.

Who's to say they weren't given food/water?  Unless they stated that and I just don't recall it of course. 

I agree, I debate that timeline some.

I would think they're a hike from Atlanta too...  I mean, it seemed like the Prison wasn't just next door to there.  It wasn't next door to Terminus either...  I dunno.

It wasn't my favorite episode either.  I agree about Beth wrecking things and the twist at the end...  and I assume the "You can come out now" line was meant for Everyone Hates Chris now, since the twist is back at the hospital with Beth & Co.

I agree on the cleanliness of the place...  The car batteries gave it a little more believability but the reality is after 3 years, that few people, middle of Atlanta...  Stuff not jiving as much.  We'll see though.  How do the fuzz get in/out of that building too?  They seem to do so freely, and get to their little hoard of cars, but yet the outside is overrun...  weird.

Looks like the 2nd Group is going to run into stuff and have to go back to Rick & Co.

They split up, it's slowing down...  Hopefully it gets ugly again.  This wasn't a great episode.  OK parts, but not great.

There were some bowls and some food/drink type item near the entrance of the train car in the season 4 finale, so I think they were feeding Glenn and friends something (ensure or powdered milk maybe). It makes sense that the Termites would give their captives something to keep a bit of meat on their bones. I doubt they rushed to feed them again after the gunfight with Rick though.
