From all the trailers I wonder if they will pull something crazy.

Like they arrive and the prison is empty. They are just all gone.

Maybe they set somesort of trap up for them too. Like the giant prison break alarm on the generator will go off again and call all the zombies in a 5 mile radius at them now that the gate is driven through.

i'm thinking the prison will have some sort of trap in it, but they will be gone.

Also after watching the new episode again I'm convinced that Merle planned it all along. Well outside of the dying part.

Talking dead had some great parts to it and a deeper look into the characters. The sneak peek to next episode showed a good trap set up it looks like.

Maybe I just pay real close attention but I knew it as soon as Merle clipped him when he walked in front of the Governor. Let's be honest though. He wasn't really that important of a character. He was just kind of being used to fuel the tension between his dad and T-Dawg 3.0 - kind of like Tiny from the beginning of the season. Just for Tomas and Rick.

Sucks those spoiler pics were true.... Fuck

Ending made up for the other 55 mins of garbage.

-Welcome back the dodge ram with its wax job again

-Couldn't stop laughing at the chevy on 20's, then an extra laugh was had when i realize the original owner could only afford 2

-wtf is with having such a tense scene with merle and the governor troops shootout etc only to have the very next scene be a goddamn marriage proposal? way to kill that tension.

-Sad that Merle's genius plan had to get buried by Mazzaras shitty writing with the surprise ninja zombie out of nowhere routine. Then suddenly everyone knows where Merle is even though nobody knew he was even there in the first place. Let me also get this straight, Michonne whooped the Govs ass all around his place leaving him with only 1 eye, yet Merle who has Military training gets his ass beat by that same 1 eyed governor :roll:

-that shootout scene seemed to highlight the problem Soodmeg was pointing out a couple of episodes ago. They set up this whole impending war with the Governor and every time you saw the town it seemed like there was only about 5-6 people that would be going to war against the prison which would seem like they have even numbers. Now fast forward to this episode and now there seems to be 10+ of these bastards at the rendezvous that Merle went after. where the hell these fools come from?

-If Martinez is sporting a damn grenade launcher im gonna love how they somehow write this war to be somewhat even.


All you talk about is the s****y writing, yet you failed to realize Merle basically got jumped by two guys before fighting the governor.

[spoiler]Point 1, agreed. Point 2, typical dirty south. Point 3, meh. Point 4, already addressed that you missed details. Point 5, there have been lots of scenes where you saw lots of people in the town whether it was when Andrea and Michone got there and saw people going about their daily lives like everything was normal to the pitfighting scene and the BBQ, etc. His army isn't going to follow him around everywhere he goes like a little puppy dog. They have daily lives to lead with chores to do in the town and assemble as necessary, report for sentry duty as needed etc.

Just to show you how shitty the character development was i had no idea Merle was eating Ben LOL

I thought this was clear when he shot Ben while trying to shoot the governor and then clear when he was eating Ben. Between this and the point 4 above were you just tired when you were watching this and thus not focused on watching the show?

I think this episode is the reason the new game was rushed out to store. I had a feeling it was getting rushed to be out before one of the brothers died (I figured Merle, but you never know). I can picture Activision execs saying that the game wouldn't do well if it came out and one of the characters was already dead on the show so they had to release it before that happened.

I imagine that was pretty close to what it was.

"Okay, we are making a game starring the fan favorite character and his hard-ass mysterious brother who hasn't been seen for a while but is returning! I want action, drama, adventure. I want a deep story with many different characters, some tactical team elements, and stealth gameplay to make Hitman cry!"

Right before the season starts they get info on the plot and something like the pic that was leaked for this weeks episode.

"Okay people we have 12 more weeks to get this piece of crap out onto the shelves before the end of the season and we are screwed. I want zombie slap fights, toss some sweat drops on the screen and *boom* call it a day. Double time. Cut all corners. I want no corners, everything is round! Rounded! And bring me pictures of Spider-man!"

I don't know why you would not be watching at that moment. Merle has the gun on the governor and this is a moment where the showdown could possibly have been averted. When he took the shot, he had to have hit something right? You must have blinked (but I didn't notice it was also the corpse).

However, don't bullets sometimes pass through people...

I think Rick is going to die and turn into a walker.... either that or Carl finally gets knocked off!

I think the group set a trap by having most of the Governor's forces die in some explosion in the prison. Setting off the alarms won't do much when all they have to do is get into the cars and drive away.

I don't think they are going to kill Rick. I really don't see Rick, Glenn, Carl, Daryl, Carol, Maggie, Hershel, or Michonne being killed off till middle to end of next season if they are killed off at all. I that really just leaves Beth and Andrea. Andrea who knows about right now. I don't see her being killed. I really think she will take over the town. I just think they put to much into building her character to kill her off this early. Beth I really haven't seen much done with her other than taking care of the baby. I can see her being killed off in the next episode. I don't even expect The Governor to be killed. I think most of his gang will be however we may see him later on as a walker and at the end of this season they will hint that he may still be alive. That is what I'm thinking. I really think that they are mostly going to kill off new cast members for the next season or two.

And the baby dies....No way this will happen but would be awesome if they had the balls to kill the baby and stay true to the book. Lori gets shot in raid and crushes the baby when falls.

I do like the differences in the story arc though as it keeps things fresh. Can't wait for season 4 tease..

I thought the rule on TV is that kids can't get killed on screen? Zombie kids really are pushing it for me. The reason for theory about Rick is that he is loosing his mind and seeing things. It's gotta be one of the symptoms to becoming a zombie. Carl.....I don't know what they can do with Carl...........The show needs to give us an update on how really fucked up the world is.

Just saw the last episode. Whole lot of meh, I never really gave a crap about merle so I dont really care that he is dead now. Although it was nice to see them try to at least flesh him out a little before killing him in the same episode. That one quick arc. Dont get it...he basically just stood around for 4 episode and they they try to cram all of this char depth into 30 min.

Piggy backing on renique I have always been confused at just how many people are at the town. One episode they have so little people they have to take old people and asthmatic johnny the next episode they have 50....10 people die...yet get replaced in the very next scene.

I looked at a picture of ben for about 5 min and still didnt know who the hell he was it me looking it up to find out.....if this was star trek he would have been wearing a red shirt with a sign saying...I am only here to get killed later.


Nothing much to add....episode was flat because they tried to cram merle whole redemption into 30 min. With them saying that over 20 people are going to die next episode I hope they get to it early and not wait until the last 20 min and just off everyone from a grenade or something stupid.

I think Merle and even T-Dog were just a waste. They didn't even use T-Dog and Merle they held off to long. I think they could have done more with Merle and would have liked to see more from him. I think his ending was great, but it just seemed like they finally realized how they could use him. Almost like they gave the excuse for his character when him and Rick were talking. Not sure how the dialog was, but I know it was along the lines of Rick asking if Merle plans the things he does or not.

Still just two. Just Kirkman said that It's not the same Lilly from the comic.

Upon the release of the Road to Woodbury novel, which features a different back-story for Lilly than the video game, the developer Telltale Games removed from the official website all references to Lilly being the same character from the comic series. Also, the in-game achievement that displays when Lilly leaves the group was changed from "Woodbury bound" to "What now?" This indicates that Telltale Games changed the game Lilly to be a different Lilly from the comics and novels after all, in an effort to keep all three mediums (excluding the TV series, naturally) in the same canon. This indication was confirmed when Robert Kirkman himself stated that the Lilly from the games is a different Lilly and not the one from the novels and comics

Anyone surprised that someone in the Governor's posse has access to an M32?

They took out that national guard unit early in the season, but why would the national guard have an M32 Grenade Launcher?

I think Merle and even T-Dog were just a waste. They didn't even use T-Dog and Merle they held off to long. I think they could have done more with Merle and would have liked to see more from him.

Agreed. T-Dog was my favorite character on the show. They wasted him.
