I imagine the group finally getting to the town (can't remember the name) will be the season finale.

Am I the only one that gets the feeling that that community is going to prove to be false hope?  That Terminus is terminated, and now the signage is just bringing fresh meat to a walker buffet?

I've also wondered why nobody in the comic or show has ever tried this:

Pick out a nice tall building.
rig a series of noisemaking sounds that attract walkers from a wide area to the building, guides them into the building, and up the stairs to the roof.
rig an attractant (sound, animal in a cage hung from a crane, what have you) that takes them up a shallow ramp and off the edge, where they plummet to their head-smashing finish.

Voila. Zombie problem solved.

Seriously.  Can I be the only one to think of Head-Smashed-in Zombie Jump?

There is no easy zombie answer allowed. That's the entire point of the genre.

They will probably get there and reunite the prison survivors but if Terminus still exists it will be abandoned or will be a focus next season. I haven't read much of the comic after they got there.

There wasn't a Terminus in the comics (at least it wasn't called Terminus). I'm thinking Terminus will be just a stand in for the Hilltop which was that town they got to in the comics.

Oh, there are several easy answers.  That's the failure of the genre.

The easiest of the answers is 'keep moving north'.  For all the other things zombies are, they're still made of meat, and they'll still freeze.   The answer to disabling zombies would be as simple as 'open the doors, let them out, and then send the children out to play and whack the heads off of the zombie statues'.  Even the ones you miss will be massively freezer burnt come spring zombie thaw.  But then of course, the bigger challenge becomes surviving that winter yourself.

It's been a while, but I recall a settlement in the comics that preceded Hilltop.  It was a 'gated community' just outside of Washington that was like the community that the zombies forgot on the inside, more absurdly normal than Woodbury.  Hilltop was where they went after that place went all to sh*t, as every community in TWD eventually does.

Yep. You're right. There was a town before the hilltop. Alexandria! (I actually had to look it up, it's been a while since I read the comics).

OK, I didn't get past Alexandria in the comics. I wonder if the cannibals will appear in the show, IIRC they showed up before Alexandria but I thought they ate Hershel's leg so probably not.

And that points out another advantage of the living.  A survival instinct.  I know how to take shelter and build a fire, zombies not so much.  If it were a winter like we had around here, with regular stretches of -30C weather, the zombie outbreak in a world without heat would last all of about 20 minutes.

My guess is that Terminus is home to the bad guys Rick encountered week before last. You just KNOW we're going to see this guy again:

I don't think they would have picked a recognizable actor otherwise.

You're probably right about seeing him again, but being a recognizable actor is hardly a reliable meter of longevity for this show.  It's actually one of its more charming qualities.

Yeah. They had that kid from Rescue Me who played Randal (I think) the kid Shane killed. Also Brad or Zack (the kid Mad Dog 20/20 got killed going after that sweet sweet booze) has been in a bunch of horror movies. I figured they'd last longer and boom. Gone. Good way to keep the audience on their toes.

Yeah, but he wasn't talking about longevity.  He was talking about the probability that we'd see him again.  He didn't die in the last episode, so I'd say it's damn near certain that they didn't bring him in just to wander onto the porch and then back into the house.

I don't doubt it. Still, the way they played Michael Rooker, of all people, kinda keeps me in play.  They've done a good job of keeping the cast expectations pliable.

Actually, they just left Alexandria in the comics. They encountered Hilltop, and in the process got the attention of Negan, which leads to the war between Negan's group and Alexandria, Hilltop, and The Kingdom. The fighting damages Alexandria to the point where they have to abandon it.

The comic actually does seem to be slowly building to something hopeful, though. Rick is finally accepting that he is the leader for the new world, and the war is forcing Hilltop, Alexandria, and The Kingdom together into a larger, stronger community. Once they deal with The local warlord Negan, they will likely come out stronger and more united. Right now, it seems like a post-zombie civilization is in the making if Rick can get the upper hand with Negan.

I think I'll go back and play through both episodes and make different choices this time around. Episode 1 really did have some cringe-worthy moments. It's rough waiting between episodes. I purchased Season 1 in its entirety from Steam.

For some reason, Terminus is giving me the same vibe as the settlement in the city at the end of the first season of the Walking Dead video game.
