Walking dead tv show. (Spoilers)

yes, i will agree.

Looks like the dewdz acquire something living, bullet-proof, and zombie-proof for the rest of the season, wooooooooo! oooo, oo. o.o.o

Sadly, the possibility of T-dog taking over the group's leadership became a little less likely in this episode.

I'm still holding out hope...

Other things in that episode happened, and I may have emotions about them. I'll probably take them up in the other thread, though.

Ok, so season 3 has redeemed this show in my eyes. Great acting, love the action, tons of momentum.. Carry on.

Only caught the last 10 minutes, but yay! Was still hoping they'd have the guts to follow the comic version, as Rick has had no trouble shooting two young girls. Rick needs to lose everything he loves, with the exception of his immortal son, in order to totally lose his sh*t. And his hand.

I want my magic phone!

Any thoughts on where Carol ran off to? I didn't see a corpse that could have been hers, just T-Dog's mostly eaten body and her scarf.

When she turns up alive I don't think it will be much of a surprise.

Probably the most intense episode of the series yet...

I just have to say I'm so glad Lori is finally dead. I had my fingers crossed for a zombie fetus clawing its way through her belly, but my wife thought that would be a bit too much even for AMC. Guess the wife won this round.

My opinion of Lori was never very good, but her final scene was fantastic. If she had shown more of that style of thinking before her final moments I would have liked her more.

My favorite part of the last episode was Lauren Cohan's (Maggie) performance from the point of delivering the baby to the end of the episode.

I was blown away by this episode. I couldn't imagine that inmate surviving being thrown in the yard with all those zombies. He was definitely a suspect for the gates/alarms, but one of the least.

Lori's death bothered me a lot more than I thought it would. But I think it has more to do with what Gimpy said, she suddenly showed some actual character, and my heart went out to the child she was saying goodbye to, the baby she was birthing (zombaby ... maybe?) and Maggie. All I could think was "what a f@cking hell they're in". Quite unsettling.

Carol just had to get away. The one thing I don't get though, is that when she runs past T-Dogg, she still has her scarf on her head. How did it end up at the scene with T-Dogg?

And what happened to handle-bar-mustache dude? I didn't see him at the end, but don't recall him being eaten or anything.

Andrea (with her duckface) wants to be the First Lady of Woodbury. Will Michonne intervene?

Good thing they had a spare Token Black Guy to fill in once poor T-Bone finished doing God's will or whatever. Maybe this one won't be quite so token-y and will actually get some character development.

More has already happened this season than in all of Season 2. They're definitely heading in the right direction, and I'm glad I gave it another chance.

My wife and I agree with you here. We're really enjoying the turn this season is taking. It was really emotional. T-Dog being the hero(one of the last threads of humanity left in the group) with the honorable sacrifice was pretty moving. Also that whole delivery scene. Had us at the edge of our seats.

Also, I can't wait to see how they handle that 'event' that needs to be postponed.

Maybe I'll add it to my wish list.

What, no comment on the last two episodes?

Most of the conversation has been in the spoiler-phobic thread. I don't think the Governor is done showing us how evil he can be. He's keeping Andrea from knowing that they've kidnapped Glenn & Maggie. He was quite bummed about not having Michonne's head to add to his collection as well. He didn't just want her dead, he wanted a trophy from someone who defied him.

What, no comment on the last two episodes?

We just caught up (we're watching two episodes in a row every other week - I feel like that's kind of nice for pacing) and I continue to be overall happy with how the series is unfolding.

Rick went maybe a little too crazy for maybe a little too long, but it's OK - I forgive him. The phone call was kind of cornball, but I'll give it a pass.

I continue to find the Governor not-quite-as-evil as I suspect I'm supposed to. Yeah, he's a dick and a liar, but he's getting the job done when nobody else can seem to. I mean, he's got a whole city full of safe people, while Rick's got a small group that's barely treading water. Maybe the Gov's the hero we need right now.

I'm a little confused about why they dug (and filled in, seemingly) three graves when they didn't have Carol's body. Digging graves by hand would be a lot of work to go through for a purely symbolic gesture.

I loved the scene with Carl and Daryl together. Daryl is probably my favorite character in the show and I think they've done a really good job with him.

Thought the setup for him going crazy was too rushed in "Say the Word", but in this past week's episode ("Hounded") he was great.

I like the phone a lot, and suspect that fans of the comic appreciate that one as well. (I thought it was even better in the show than the comic, in fact).

That was my thought. It serves a better purpose on TV than in the comic, even. It's a way to get inside his brain and detail what is actually transforming him and how it's happening without narration.

Only thing for me is, it's pretty obvious what's bringing Rick down - so the call-from-beyond-the-grave bit seemed unnecessary (and a bit out of character with the rest of the show).

That's a minor quibble, though. I like the direction the show has taken and I think it's firing on all cylinders. It's rare to see a series flag like this one did in S2, only to make such a big comeback.

Well, it's more about seeing how the events are playing out in his mind. Yeah, we know that in general Rick is conflicted with being the leader of the group while knowing how many have died on his watch. But as the blood piles up, and more uninfected have to be "dealt with" there is a huge toll on the one that has to be the leader.

They are setting up a pretty nice compare and contrast situation with rick and The Governor. How do you deal with this kind of new reality?

Somewhat predictable spoiler about the phone:

Spoiler:

The phone sticks around and continues to help narrate Rick's story, so to speak.

Don't know. I feel like it's completed it's purpose. Once Rick realizes he's "talking to himself" through Lori's voice and embraces the newborn, I think he's ready to move on.

Spoiler:

just because it stuck around in the comic doesn't mean it will here too. Once Rick gets control of himself(if he hasn't already) the phone thing will be gone. I think its use in the show was simply to easily show Rick recognizing his own broken mental state and regaining control.

Spoiler:

The phone became therapeutic to Rick over time. Just because it served its purpose here doesn't mean he won't need to talk things out with Lori more. Obviously they may drop it, but it serves as a the key element in a couple scenes from the comic that I suppose we will see. He and Michonne explored their need to talk with the ones they lost, and Carl goes from being sympathetic to his father's need to condemning him for it later.

I don't see any reason for the show to drop it, but they might. But I don't think the purpose it served was nearly enough to include it in the show.

I would agree if this was season 2, where EVERYONE needed to drag out long monologues about their feelings.
A call or two could succeed at pulling some heart strings, but it would become annoying very, very quickly.

I think writers learned a lot from Season 1 and 2; season 3 is so far, the best season. Mostly, because of the good balance between conversations, a few action sequences, and actual stuff happening.

I'd hate for the show to go back to the much slower paced formula of the past season.

I'd like to see the phone stick around, but rarely shown. Maybe have him use it once or twice more before the end of the season, and have it be something he grabs (if he can) when they leave the prison.

This exactly. It definitely should not be a weekly schtick.

Yes. I liked what they tried to do with it; but it ended up feeling like Doogie Howser computer diary.

Spoiler:

But not as cool.
