I'm still hoping they bring Morgan back, I also like that actor.


Same here. I miss him from Jericho.

that bosnian sniper: Hebalo: I'm a bit sad that Rick has returned to normal so quickly. It seems like they could have played the phone thing out longer, had him conserving with the other people on the line for a scene or two for a few episodes...

...and just because we saw a scene in which Rick was lucid means he's back to normal?


Well, good point. I'll be happy if they do continue it. It was a great conceit from the comic books, and it would be a really effective way to see Rick's mental state, struggle etc. Might have been more effective if they had drawn out the possibility that it was someone real on the other end for a while.

*****SPOILER ALERT*****


In the comics, they do come across the character again, when Rick visits his hometown on an errand and checks on Morgan. If the show follows suit, I'd guess it would happen around the beginning of season 5? Season 4 is possible, seeing how much ground they've covered already this season.

The Banana Thug: Great episode. But don't think I can stomach the next one. We'll see.

And Michonne following the zombies to the prison after masking her human smell was an excellent resolution to what could've been a glaring plothole.


To me, that in itself is a plothole. We humans don't really have a great sense of smell to begin with when compared to other members of the animal kingdom. And these zombies are constantly decaying. Why would a decaying zombie have a great sense of smell? Seems like they wouldn't be smell anything other than their own stench.

I liked the way Shawn of the Dead handled it better. Just shamble around everywhere and don't speak, because zombies are stupid creatures.

Was doing a little research and they said he's on the cast list for Season 3, so maybe near the end of the season he'll show up

NeoCortex42: Big Beef Burrito: The Banana Thug: My thoughts:

1) I'm disturbed by how seamlessly they replaced T-Dog with that black prisoner. He's even doing that loitering-in-background-saying-nothing thing too. It's taking that "token black guy" to a level of ridiculousness.


What? Oscar is a totally different character. This black guy is bald. He digs holes. He opens and closes gates. He stands in the back of the group. He has few lines.

Aw, Hell....he's O-Dog now.

Well, when you put it like that: He's a ditch-digger and doorman who rides the back of the bus. I guess post-apocalypse Georgia isn't exactly progressive, is it.


Hey, AMC can only tackle so many social predjudices in one show.

I mean, they already expect us to believe the black guy was in prison. Any more groundbreaking characterizations like that and they might as well have him shoot lasers out of his eyes.

I didn't see any spoilers about Glenn and Maggie in the article.

So I will just post this instead.

I get the feeling it'll be a recurring, but not typical, thing. I suspect they'll leave it for times of extreme stress for Rick, as a coping mechanism. I doubt it'll be a "once per episode" thing, maybe more like once or twice a season.

Now, spoiler stuff.

If the show follows suit, I'd guess it would happen around the beginning of season 5? Season 4 is possible, seeing how much ground they've covered already this season.


Considering the way they diverge and come back to the comics' story line, I suspect after the Woodbury conflict is over the entire group will head north for some reason...maybe to get away from the herd. When Rick and Carl head to Kentucky in the comics, the herd becomes a pretty major plot point for a while. The show's creators have already foreshadowed it, showed it at one point (the end of season 2) and alluded to it throughout season 3 thus far.

I can't see the group not being on their way to the Alexandria safe zone by the end of season 4, so I'd tag Morgan's return in early season 4 personally. Which, as a corollary, means New T-Dog's life span is six, maybe eight, more episodes.

I don't think those zombies shambled to the prison because they could smell the humans in Rick's group. I think they were just following other, earlier zombies, who were initially attracted to the prison because of all the noises there. That's how a horde is formed, and this was explained well in the comics but can't remember if this was sufficiently addressed in the show.

I think each zombie show/movie is allowed an artistic license in setting up their own parameters for what a zombie can and cannot do. TWD's take has been the most unusual so far. Everyone's already infected, and zombie blood won't affect you but a seemingly non-lethal zombie bite does. It will be interesting to see how Kirkman will reconcile these facts in the end, particularly why everyone's already infected. That's the greatest mystery of the series.

PsyLord: Cletus C.: They've succeeded in making Michonne an incredibly unlikeable character. I know, I know. Comic book blah, blah. But what exactly is her redeeming quality? That she took in Andrea and nursed her back to health? That relationship seems like Lenny and the mouse.

She's not a great conversationalist. Her brooding, grunting hyper paranoid shiat doesn't make her the ideal dinner party guest. Now, we'll probably have half an episode of her deciding if she can trust Rick and gang. Ugh. The governor is far more interesting. Tapping Andrea was nice work.

Michonne's got to go. Throw her in a biter pit with a dinner fork for a weapon. Great fun.

I can see her and Daryl as being the ultimate bad-ass zombie hunter group.


Daryl will find out how much of a badass she is, and get the hots for her. This will make Carol mad, and we will have three episodes of Carol pouting about it. Daryl and M will hook up, just before he reunites with Merle, who as we know is a virulent racist. This will lead to three more episodes of Daryl and Merle fighting over her.

Done.

Is it horde or herd? The reference to a "red zone" last night definitely got my attention, so you might be right. If season 4 consists entirely of the group constantly on the run from a menacing and unrelenting zombie horde (think Terminator 1 or 2), that would be pure awesome. No prison, no Woodbury, no farm - just constantly on the run to stay a step ahead.

...the article that's linked actually goes into that, in Kirkman's own words. You know, if the ambient discussion on the topic every time it comes up isn't enough.

Zombies' mouths and nails are toxic, poisonous, pathogen-laden death-holes. Hell, a skin-breaking bite from a human that practices decent oral hygiene is laden with bacteria and virii enough to cause a potentially-lethal case of sepsis without medical attention. How much more toxic do you think a zombie's mouth would be? Secondary infection is what kills you.

Humans may not have a great olfactory sense, but we can smell very strong odors, such as rotting, decaying flesh and viscera.

Walkers obviously have some degree of brain function, and since living things do not smell like themselves, its not unreasonable that they have learned to use their sense of smell to help distinguish targets.

A better question I've yet to see a satisfactory answer to (in anything from the zombie genre) is why simple-minded creatures are compelled to act cooperatively, and don't try to eat each other.

/aside from the fact that it would be the shortest zombie uprising ever.

How about we just designate T-Dog 2.0 as Two-Dog. Then when he's gone by the end of the season, his replacement will be Three-Dog Night.

Well, a kid only counts as half, right? So we get 3/5 + (3/5)/2. So that's like one if we use old-timey math, right?

Saiga410: Sadly you are probably right. Though what does Morgan's son do to the only one black male secondary level character rule?


Yeah, about that...if it follows the comics, I wouldn't suspect that rule being broken.

Though, apparently reading more into it, apparently Morgan was on a leaked, or released as part of PR, call sheet for season 3 (it was the same one that revealed Axel's and New T-Dog's names). So, it looks like he might be coming back earlier than I'd figured.

Pffft that's easy. 1. They are not acting cooperatively, it might just seem that way. They are all out for the same thing, which is warm living flesh and blood. Kinda like maggots only eat dead tissue, zombies prefer live tissue. In some zombie movies, it might be anything alive, in others, they only go after people.

"Cooperative" was a poor choice of wording by me, just meant they want to eat living things, but then these versions of the undead have already been shown to drawn to dead animal carcasses.

Hope so! That actor is great. Love his character on Jericho. I just hope he'll be more badass (a la Jericho) and less broken than he was in the comic version.

Their sole drive is the consumption of living flesh, or a fresh kill, even though they derive no nutritional benefit from it. They continue to rot and decompose. Not sure how all of that is handled in TWD. Looks like the one zombie gorged himself on Lori's remains and could barely move. And I think the scientist dude said they are still rotting no?

I've like the actor ever since I saw him in Snatch. His southern accent was really good, too. Morgan was such a tortured character, and I'd like to see that revisited briefly if they return to his story arc.
 
2012-11-19 01:51:29 PM
What I got from the "red zone" was that Merle and his gang had just fired off a bunch of gunshots, which would attract nearby walkers. If they stood around too long, walkers would be at their location, so Merle was wanting to move and get out of the "red zone/ danger zone."

Agreed. That scene from season 1, where Morgan was holed up in his house and his zombified wife sauntered up to his front door and tried to turn the doorknob, and Morgan looked through the peephole into his wife's dead eyes... Absolutely sent chill up my spine. So well done. The show needs to do more of these quietly terrifying scenes.

And yet Walkers have been able to sneak up on living humans on multiple occasions. Seems to me that by now, the aura of stench around them would be quite profound and far reaching

There was a guy who used to work at my current company who bathed in cologne. You could be sitting 40 feet from the entrance to the break room and as soon as he walked in the door, everybody knew he was there.

Now imagine that instead of whatever cologne he used, it was rotting / decaying flesh. No walkers are gonna sneak up on me unless it's the middle of allergy season.

But, if everybody is wearing said guy's cologne, won't it become an omnipresent scent, and therefore be more difficult to pick out or discern in a wide open area with any semblance of wind? I would imagine that the scent of decaying flesh is rather prevalent if every dead person is up and moving, decaying all the while.

Correct. It would explain why that zombie ate Lori, after Carl shot her in the head. She was still fresh. Very disturbing scene, where Rick came upon that overstuffed zombie.

There has been a few comments that make me think that the walkers might not stink that bad when still "alive". One that pops to mind was after clearing one of the cell blocks. Someone said that (para) "We need to clear these bodies out before they start stinking"

So...really...what is the deal with not calling them zombies in the show? I think I'd rather call them the undead, or ghouls or something besides walkers and biters.

Frankly I don't really look at it as a true herd, they don't even really see a true herd until they hook up with Abrahams if I recall.

You Are All Sheep: So...really...what is the deal with not calling them zombies in the show? I think I'd rather call them the undead, or ghouls or something besides walkers and biters.


If I recall, I think the concept of "zombies" and zombie films do not exist within the TWD universe. No "28 Days Later", no "Dawn of the Dead", no nothing. So the word "zombie" doesn't even exist. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

KellyX: Frankly I don't really look at it as a true herd, they don't even really see a true herd until they hook up with Abrahams if I recall.


You are correct. I think it was Abraham who was explaining to the group what a REAL zombie horde looks like, and how it is formed. The smaller hordes at the beginning of season 2 on the highway and the one that overran the farm are nothing in comparison to a real horde, which I hope is what season 4 will be about.

SirDigbyChickenCaesar: One that pops to mind was after clearing one of the cell blocks. Someone said that (para) "We need to clear these bodies out before they start stinking"


That bothered me in that after that amount of time and in a hot cell block the bodies would be well past the stinking phase. Ever have a mouse die under something and you cannot find it. It stinks to high heaven for a week and then subsides as the flesh desiccates.

EyeballKid: Did anybody else listen to Rick's dialogue in this episode and think that maybe this season Rick yells the signature line? (No, not "Shut the fark up, Lori.")


He could still yell that...but i was thinking the same last night.

The Banana Thug: kumanoki: The Banana Thug: that bosnian sniper: Though, apparently reading more into it, apparently Morgan was on a leaked, or released as part of PR, call sheet for season 3 (it was the same one that revealed Axel's and New T-Dog's names). So, it looks like he might be coming back earlier than I'd figured.

Hope so! That actor is great. Love his character on Jericho. I just hope he'll be more badass (a la Jericho) and less broken than he was in the comic version.I've like the actor ever since I saw him in Snatch. His southern accent was really good, too. Morgan was such a tortured character, and I'd like to see that revisited briefly if they return to his story arc.

Agreed. That scene from season 1, where Morgan was holed up in his house and his zombified wife sauntered up to his front door and tried to turn the doorknob, and Morgan looked through the peephole into his wife's dead eyes... Absolutely sent chill up my spine. So well done. The show needs to do more of these quietly terrifying scenes.


That was actually Rick. Morgan was busy keeping his very distraught son quiet. Maybe you're thinking of him viewing her through the scope of the rifle?

Oh, I know! I think what made Season 1 so good was the emptiness. there was a stark emptiness to the scenes that conveyed that sense that everyone was gone, everyone had fled or turned. It was a powerful scene when Rick finds Morgan and his son because it's his first contact with anyone alive..and to be greeted in such a way, to be handled at arms reach until they were sure, to squat in a neighbors house with the windows boarded and dead loved ones out in the street...it was shocking and powerful- this was going to be life post-coma for Rick. And Morgan's sadness and grief and anger would play out over and over and over again for Rick in everything he did from that point forward. That was powerful. I think that's why so many poeple want to see Morgan again.

But I don't know if we can go back to those quiet scenes, you know? The cat is out of the bag. People are forming groups, groups are forming societies, and the zombie threat is understood, at least in a rudimentary way. Rick isn't going to say something for the fallen undead anymore. He's moved way beyond that, to the point that the half-zombie in the park seems like a quaint scene now.

The Banana Thug: You Are All Sheep: So...really...what is the deal with not calling them zombies in the show? I think I'd rather call them the undead, or ghouls or something besides walkers and biters.

If I recall, I think the concept of "zombies" and zombie films do not exist within the TWD universe. No "28 Days Later", no "Dawn of the Dead", no nothing. So the word "zombie" doesn't even exist. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.



Right, while the z-word does exist in universe, zombies don't exist a pop culture phenomenon. It's unlikely someone would use the term unless they had read up on Vodou religious practices. I guess that might be what they'd call them in Haiti and parts of West Africa.

It's from the comic book. I'm trying not to ruin for anybody who may not have read it yet.

I'm still hoping they bring Morgan back, I also like that actor.

*****SPOILER ALERT*****


In the comics, they do come across the character again, when Rick visits his hometown on an errand and checks on Morgan. If the show follows suit, I'd guess it would happen around the beginning of season 5? Season 4 is possible, seeing how much ground they've covered already this season.


I may be way off, but I could have sworn during a season preview clip they showed a reunion of Rick and Morgan. Or maybe I completely made that up in my head. Damn, the phone is ringing now...
