That wasn't heaven calling; that was Rick having a breakdown. He made it pretty clear that he felt guilty about the people he couldn't save, the people he'd had to kill, what his son was going through. I thought that was all fairly obvious. He needed to be forgiven, so he invented this conversation in his psychotic break.
Yes, thank you, We/I get that, just playing what if here, what if the writers are in fact messing with our minds?

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

At first, I did think the first two phone calls were from Woodbury, which made me believe at first that they were messing with Rick's mind with the Laurie phone call, or that maybe only the Laurie phone call was in head. Because it seem like the phone rang before he noticed it (or maybe I just remembred wrong). But, then when Amy and Jim and were mentioned (I didn't catch Jacquie), I realized it was all delusion.

For those who don't watch The Talking Dead, you should give it a try. It's great fun: Interviews with cast and crew (and other guests), a recap reel of the deaths that week, sneak peek at the following episode, that is different than the regular prevews and some pretty funny insights. I don't watch the show live, I watch it on On Demand, and watch the episode of The Walking Dead, back to back iwth the episode o The Talking Dead.

IMO, the only way Lori is returning is as a walker because Carl was too chicken shit to shoot his mother in the head.

Other observations:

*Why was that chick on the wall so upset about Lori jumping down and killing the walker? If anything that should illustrate how proficient she is at handling herself in those types of situations?

*Glenn is an idiot for falling into Merle's trap. He should have shot him on site because Merle was a huge risk back in Atlanta and his behavior then should have shown why he could not be trusted.

*I'm glad Carol is coming back. Darryl is going to IMO be a more stable leader than Rick is now.

*Regarding Michone, I'm wondering if it's only that she had zombie guts on her that the walkers were ignoring her or as others have suggested has been infected and how isn't a target for the walkers? [indientally the zombie guts worked in season one as a way to throw them off until it rained]

*I cannot figure out the Governor - are they trying to position him as still bat shit crazy or just disturbed over his daughter's death and that Lori has entered his life has become more sane?

The Governor runs a really, really tight ship. The whole town is frightened of pissing him off. The Governor has dictated, no one goes the wall unnecessarily, so, Andrea jumping over made the other chick paranoid The Governor was flip his lid

Yea, Glenn should have shot Merle immediately, but, that's an awfully tough decision to make, to kill someone you know, in cold blood like that. He reasonably thought with the two of them, he and Maggie had the situation in hand, very bad decision, but, you can't really blae him and call him an idiot for it

I'm sure the Governor is still batshit crazy, nothing has suggested he's become sane all of a sudden. He's lways been portrayed as being able to keep up an in control sane appearance in public.

Well she claimed to be an Olympian level shot with a bow. Which Olympics would that be - the special Olympics?

She missed twice until Andrea jumped down and killed the walker.

Yea, that was pretty jolting after watching what a crack shot everyone else has become, Daryl with his bow, or anyone else in Rick's group could hit a mosquito at 1000 yards now, LOL. Goes to show Andrea had a point about getting out of practice

It's the zombie gut thing again. Surrounding yourself with zombie odor keeps them from noticing you. That was why Michonne kept her two pet walkers around in the past. I'm surprised it took her so long to catch on this time, but I guess she was distracted.

I don't think Michone realized that she was covered in walker gore until the zombies walked past her. She looked down at herself and noticed she was covered in blood and goo...then it dawned on her. She also walked up to the fence at the prison covered in the same goo. Pretty bold I'd say.

Haley didn't claim to be that good. Her mention of the Olympics was in reference to her father's hopes for her.

Maybe I misunderstood that. But I took it she was at least a decent shot, after all she was going to train Andrea on the use of the bow at a later time. That she missed the shot 2x from such close range at least leads me to believe she's no expert with a bow.

That was what I meant. She already knew how the walker gore thing works and really should have been able to move among them with impunity... but she overlooked it until that moment. It was a fake-out for the sake of the audience.

Afterward, she probably didn't consider walking up to the fence to be all that bold or risky. (Except for the possibility of getting shot. )

Well, I did quibble over phrasing. Haley claimed to be good (just not Olympic-level good)... and she failed miserably twice in a row.
