You mean like virtually every other character injured in a tv show or movie? Yep, that's conclusive evidence.
No, it's not conclusive evidence, but considering the severity of the wound and the impromptu surgery by a veterinarian, it does seem notable. I can't think of any other examples of such severe wounds healing so quickly and completely.
Randall (the guy whose leg was impaled that they voted to execute) was hobbled that episode, and Daryl even used the wound to torture him, but as soon as the next episode doesn't seem to be suffering any lingering effects when Rick and Shane have their all-out throwdown. Which wasn't as serious as Carl's injuries but it was still pretty rapid.
Good point. I don't really remember the details of that very clearly, so you may be right. Although he did have a lot of adrenaline pumping.

There had also been the passage of a week between the two episodes, based on a Rick comment when he first stops the car at an intersection early in that second episode.

The addition of David Morrissey as The Governor was interesting. He is one of those excellent but underrated British actors that not many Americans are familiar with.

I have to say that making the Governor batshit insane seemed like the laziest route to go (I'm aware he was like that in the comics, too). It'd be much more interesting if he was ruthless but sane and had the right intentions.
Yeah I do like this character. It's pretty obvious that he's kind of set up as the opposite coin of Rick - like Rick, this week he killed a rival group and took their stuff.

Sure, Rick killed a group of prisoners, which audiences will find less sympathetic than a group of the national guard, and the Governor did it instantly while Rick waited to be provoked... but in the end it's the same kind of result. You may call Rick's call good and the Governor's as bad, but then, that's what distinguishes them innit (that and his obviously psychotic - if masked behind gentility - urges. A man does not keep fishtanks full of severed heads because they look decorative.)

The episode may have even had a bit of subtelty which for WD surprises me: Standing guard on the walls is repeatedly identified as men's work, including by a woman; every courtesy is extended to two women captured in the wild while the male guardsman are all murdered. Possibly they want to keep women in various nuturing roles (the one job we got defined here for a woman was the doctor) and in particular sources of fresh babies and child-rearing.

^??? Are you assuming that all children will be born undead?
You know if that's the case that'd be easily the most depressing thing WD has ever done as it would make the human race functionally extinct. No amount of heroic speeches from Rick could cloud the fact that in under a century there will be no more humans left alive.

I mean becoming zombies is bad enough but unable to create new life is kinda it, what are you really fighting for then besides food and shelter?

Thanks. Those are the details I seldom remember.

Oh, I definitely think the governor is on "Woodbury needs women" thing. His whole "take back the planet" speech signals a plan that requires a large amount of breeding stock.

OMG! OMG! OMG!

I cannot believe that they did that!

Damn seriously, as someone who has read the comics I can say conclusively that I have no idea where they are going...

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

As someone who has read the comics I'm not sure beyond one major plot point where they're going.

I'm... not quite sure how I feel about this last episode to be honest, the resolution in particular. Daring or just cheap and ugly?

Not especially pleased with Andrea getting suckered in by the Governor either considering she was finally turning into somebody worth rooting for.

I really thought Lori would have sacrificed herself and it turned out to be a zombie baby as an even bigger hammer blow to the head.
