Will Herschel hop right back up get a job at IHOP?

I don't get why everyone's so down on Lori.
 
2012-10-28 04:42:18 PM  
Has anyone seen Carl? He's not in the house.

I predict Herschel will meet Glenn's friend, Irene.

Yeah, I just started a week ago and caught up to the new episode tonight. I just don't get it. What's everyone's problem with her?

Can't say without ruining two season. Suffice it to say, don't put a ring on it.

Lori is the last person you want to ride out the zombie apocalypse with.

Come on, she thought Rick was dead. I wouldn't want my wife to endlessly grieve me in the apocalypse.

I missed the last episode. Did Anakin hit that blond girl action? Did Short Round get with Maggie in the prison cell?
 
2012-10-28 08:09:40 PM  
Question about last week's show: did they really have to kill Big Tiny? I didn't see him get bit. The walker just clawed his back with its wrist stump.

Or did I miss something?

Lori is a selfish, incompetent biatch on roller skates. That's why.
 
2012-10-28 08:13:18 PM  
It's not just the fact she apparently can't control that kid in the most important of times, it's not just that she needlessly provoked and then ignored a situation between two main characters to let it fester into something bigger, she also routinely makes dumb decisions like driving off alone to deliver a piece of news to her husband even though she knew he already knew about it. The writing for her character is just... unsatisfactory.

Also, the whole deal with "The men are handling it" is irksome too. I'm not suggesting political correctness need be applied, but at least a little realism where the gender roles aren't so obviously mashed in the viewer's face. A little appreciation for the intelligence of the viewer would be welcome indeed.

There is so much unrealistic and foolish behavior in the series that the only character I actually root for anymore is the guy with the crossbow. All the other survivors will do nothing but endanger his life.

I don't really think that was the point. I think hiding the infidelity, then turning the 2 friends against each other and then rejecting Rick after he admitted he killed Shane, all while never keeping an eye on her kid were the biatch moves that made us not like her.

No, something happened over the winter that caused a huge rift between her and carl/rick. They've alluded to it several times. Hopefully this week we'll have a flashback
 
2012-10-28 08:21:57 PM  
Also, I'm rewatching last week's episode and it looks like Lori has a flipping balloon shoved under her shirt. Maybe she's faking her pregnancy
 
2012-10-28 08:31:52 PM  
alright, maybe it's just me but leaving the two guys alive with all that food seems like a terrible idea. Either coerce them into "joining" you and take all the food or off them.... and take all the food.

There needs to be two threads. this one and one for those of us who are reading the comics.

Actually I would not be at all surprised if this episode took place entirely in Woodbury, completely ignoring the prison crew.

After all, the last episode was prison-only, and ended with the "someone's spying on Carol" scene. They need to catch Andrea and Michonne up to where the rest of the group is chronologically, and here's my prediction on how they're going to do it...

SPOILERS IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE SNEAK PEEKS

1.) Start with Andrea and Michonne wandering, chronologically same time as beginning of last episode
2.) They investigate the chopper crash, get picked up/captured by Merle & the Woodbury crew
3.) The Woodbury folks question them about the other group, initially friendly but later with torture
4.) Michonne and Andrea try to escape Woodbury
5.) The scene where Carol is being watched
6.) the last 2 minutes will be whatever happens after that (hopefully a reveal of the watcher)

I'll be surprised if we see the inside of the prison.

As for who is watching Carol... I'm thinking it's Michonne, who escaped Woodbury but had to leave Andrea behind. It could be the other way around, but I think Andrea would have a harder time trying to convince Rick to rescue Michonne. She could try the "but she saved me" line, and it might work depending on how far down Rick has fallen (mentally).

That and the whining about stupid shiat when it's the goddamn worst apocalypse scenario possible going on. "There are hordes of the undead who want to shred and eat our bodies while we are still breathing but the biggest thing on my mind is I think you're acting emotionally distant towards me..."

Plus I think she's an idiot for deciding the end of the world was a good time to start ignoring birth control methods.

Why is T still bald? In fact, one of the inmates was bald as well with a nice shiny head. With walkers all around, are they really taking the time to shave their heads? Everyone else looks to be in need of some personal grooming, why not these guys?

If you got a concentrated dose of Lori and still don't understand why everyone hates her, then I would suggest you don't go out in the woods alone with Rick.

Popcorn Johnny: Benevolent Misanthrope: Has anyone seen Carl? He's not in the house.

That's what I keep hearing. Since I only get it on Netflix, I'll have to wait to see that, I guess. But god DAMN that kid has annoyed me so far.

Brick-House: Why is T still bald? In fact, one of the inmates was bald as well with a nice shiny head. With walkers all around, are they really taking the time to shave their heads? Everyone else looks to be in need of some personal grooming, why not these guys?


That kind of thing bothers me too. I keep asking how crewcut lady has her hair short. Lori and Rick actually look like they've been starving and living in a ditch.

Another show I watch pissed me off because they had a coma victim with very apparent perfectly applied makeup. Who the hell is in a coma for days with untouched eyeshadow and lipstick?
 
2012-10-28 08:56:19 PM  
I can forgive her most of the time for Carl. Without Nick being broadcast anymore, he's just a bored kid with a big wide world to explore.

Why you should hate Lori:

She gives an impassioned sheech to Rick that he really needs to kill Shane, otherwise the group is going to be torn apart.

Rick kills Shane. In self-defense. After doing all that he can to NOT kill Shane.

Lori is then mortified that Rick would kill Shane.

Someday, the writers will see that Lori is played by one actress, and is, in fact, one character.

Okay so since they're all infected anyway, why does it make sense that amputation would prevent zombification? Is it that the excesses of bacteria/viruses/whatever from the bite won't spread any more? I'm confused.

Yeah, for a show that does some amazing things with makeup, the whole "Every man has access to an unlimited amount of razors and shaving cream" thing is just annoying.

Pretty much this. I think the idea is that a bit only kills you because a zombie's mouth is a hellish place filled with nightmare bacteria; you die from the infection and THEN become a zombie because you died.

What I assumed is the bite is similar to the bite of a monitor lizard (I.E. so full of nasty bacteria it acts as a sort of venom). The bite just kills people, but still takes time to travel into the bloodstream. Once they're dead, of course, the zombie virus takes over.

I'm a bit torn, actually. We all know the only reason he's back is that the fans loved him, not for narrative reasons.

Hey TF Walking dead folks!

I wonder if the chopper was a leftover group of military/survivors from Atlanta, or if they were traveling somewhere else.

I have to tell you the saddest thing ever. Monitor lizards are venomous :-( it was recently discovered. I loved the idea of their prey dying of sepsis, but alas, it's not true
