Dissociater: SacriliciousBeerSwiller: The scene is a familiar one to readers of the comics who recall that Rick clung to Lori's memory by continuing to talk to her through phone calls that he staged with her in his mind.

God I hope they don't do this. The best thing about this show was the willingness thus far to avoid being too faithful to what is pretty mediocre source material.

Has it? This is frankly why I haven't given the show much of a chance. I thought the source material was pretty damn weak, with Kirkman basically being a terrible writer with next to no plot who constantly writes himself into corners. But if it's avoiding the source material maybe I'll give it a chance, since I do love zombie flicks, and it looks like WWZ is going to be turrible.


Yeah WWZ should just dump the name and call itself something else. I did just see a preview for a movie called Cold Body Warm Heart looks like a zombie comedy where a zombie falls for a potential victim of his. May have to give that a shot

I hope the person calling on the phone is Shane, and he goes on about how Rick failed to protect Lori and the rest of the group, just like he had always said he would.

Then Rick goes even more insane and maybe even becomes more shane-like.

As much as I like Rick as a character, I think that would be the most interesting way to go about it.

itsdan: someonelse: On the other hand, the clear focus on everybody (including Andrea but not Michonne) raising a glass to toast, plus the tea last week, makes me almost suspect that the Gov is drugging people a bit to keep them in line.

I think that's just more symbolic of the tacit agreement to not ask questions in exchange for perceived safety. I don't think he would NEED to drug them as long as they felt safe. And don't forget he seems not not like groups, especially strong groups, so there may not be super-strong ties between people to oppose him, the biggest gang in town is in own psychopath guards.


No, there's definitely something up with it, I think it was about two episodes ago when the gov said he needed the scientist guy to keep making his "tea" for everybody...

The phone is actually just piece of medical equipment next to Rick's bed, this has all been a dream he had in his coma after being shot.

It was in the article and the headline clearly states the article has spoilers so why would you expect the discussion about a spoiler riddled article to be spoiler free?

As I said in a previous thread, Lori hasn't been eaten so throughly since Shane in the first season.

You sir, are a genius. They should totally Newheart the finale of this show. Give it six seasons and a movie, then in the final minutes Rick wakes up, the world is fine, and every character we know and love was the product of fevered coma dreams.

Sort of a huge F U to the audience, like the ending of Lost.

groppet: I just think the phone ringing was freaky. For a second I just figured it was Rick having a breakdown of some sort.


When Rick shot the Lori-eating zombie in the mouth his ear was pretty damn close to the gun. A .357 at that range would make anyone's ears ring.

I love that movie so hard. I had a hell of a time finding the DVD and I ended up finding it for forty bucks and didn't bat an eye paying for it.

The sad part is I actually made it through wedding crashers. I turned zombieland off after half an hour. The way the "rules" were cut were irritating. Eisenberg is irritating.
