Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

Loved that episode. It almost feels like a different show compared to the first half of the season. So much seems to have happened!

I thought this was the best-looking episode as well. I liked the shot of Rick and Carl sat on top of the barn, but the field scene was just gorgeous. The silhouettes under the moonlight was so beautiful.

Hopefully Daryl will get promoted to second in command now, he's my favourite character and reminds me of Sayeed from Lost.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

Rick was so distraught about killing Shane that he forgot Shane would re-animate?
You ever had to put a knife in your life long best friend's stomach and then had your son show up out of the blue to witness it? Yes, it's conceivable he would get distracted enough to forget for a few moments.

And his son was holding a gun to his head. Or do you have a better explanation?

On your other points, totally agree.

He turned his back to Shane first, I think.

Aye, I do have a better explanation; "everyone is infected, and you'll all reanimate no matter how you die" wasn't what the CDC guy told Rick. That's why Rick turned his back on Shane, because he wasn't expecting him to come back. Nothing to do with being distraught or Carl being there. He simply didn't know it was going to happen.

^ That's certainly possible. I wish the writers would have shed some light on what the CDC guy really did say to Rick.

In the bar fight a few episodes back, did Rick shoot both of the bad guys in the head or elsewhere? I need to go back and re-watch that episode. If he shot them in the chest and called it a day, there's a good chance that Rick doesn't know that everyone's infected.

He shot the one at the bar in the head outright, and then shot fat guy in the chest but them deliberatly walked up to him and shot him in the head, that would indicate that he knows the fat guy could have come back a zombie

He shot the skinny guy in the head and the fat man twice in the chest and once in the head.

Of course though that is just how police are trained to shoot assailants.

I'm pretty sure Rick shot the fat guy in the head to put him out of his misery. I'd have to watch the scene again to be 100%, but I'm quite sure he was moaning or gargling on the floor, and Rick walked over and finished him off with a headshot.

Last night's score was very reminiscent of BSG's score. I enjoyed it greatly.
I thought the same thing. That orchestra with lots of percussion is signature.
Of course they sound similar, Bear McCreary composed both shows.

Check his site to learn more, he already has his behind the scenes video out for the past episode, would love to get the WD soundtrack when ever he releases it.

Um, duh! I'm pretty sure WeAreTheBorg knew it too.

btw, I've rewatched the episode and I've noticed Carl was wearing the same T-shirt as in the comics when he shot Shane.

Wow, someone in wardrobe or even the director has a flair for an attention to details.

But what if it's a higher power at play here?
Could the Walking Dead actually be angels trying to deliver a message from God?
Has all of this happened before and will it happen again?

-Jamman
Unless God's message is "Grr...arg", Zombies really aren't the best way to deliver it. Nothing so far in the series has indicated the supernatural exists, beyond the zombies, so ascribing it to a deity doesn't seem that logical.
Admittedly, I was being facetious, but what if zombies are basically God's way of raising the middle finger to mankind and telling them it's time for some house cleaning.

At the same time, he's tried to have hope for things like the winter putting a stop to the existing zombies. It doesn't really matter if winter kills the zombies if come spring new ones will just be created, especially in your own group. Who knows, at some point Hershel could die in his sleep, and with everybody in the house now he could pretty much take the whole place down. Or if Beth actually did go through with slitting her wrists completely, she could have taken out everyone in the house at the time.

If the CDC guy really told Rick this, he's a dick for not telling the others. Sure, he might be trying to protect them from hopelessness, but they're going to find out eventually, possibly with worse consequences.

A lethal airborne virus/bacteria/fungus would accomplish the same thing, no zombies...everyone just dies.

And if god wanted the worthy survive...well, the bigger jerks and predators would survive...not the meek.
