I think that's how Michonne used her chained walkers. What other purpose would they serve--or possess some advantage she lacks?
I interpretted it as being the same as smearing zombie guts on yourself, she was using them to mask her savory-ness from other Zombies.

Though it is true as Borgminister and Sojourner have stated that she never did clearly answer why she had her "pets", they could just be her family members she couldn't bare to be parted from, could be why she understand the Governor so well. (I'm leaning towards masking though)
In the Comic one is her brother and the other was her BF, she kept them for three reasons

1. To mask her scent
2. They where loved ones
3. They kept her from having the same crazy visions Rick is currently having.

In the comic both her and Rick carried guilt and saw/conversed with friends and family that were killed.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

So I watched the newest episode last night and I enjoyed it

1. I hope the look on Rick's face at the end of the episode somehow correlates that he is done with his delusions of lost family and friend because they ran that crap into the ground int the comic and it got old fast.

2. Where was Tyrese and crew?
Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't the room Glen was drawing on the floor in the same room they were holding them in?

3. How did the Woodbury guy get up on the tower without anyone seeing him?
If he was so ninja like how come he didn't just run around and slit everyone's throats?

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

1. Doubt it.

2. They're gone. It wasn't firmly established in this week's episode, but last week Rick told them to leave before going all Ghost Lori on them. After his tirade, I wouldn't want to stick around either. "Talking Dead" afterwards confirms that they left, but hinted that it may not be the last we see of them.

3. Pair of tree shears and a little stealth. The only people outside were Axel and Carol gettin' all pre-lovey-dovey, and Herschel going to counsel Rick. Michonne was in the bus. There would've been a big blind spot the tower guy could have gotten through, and the Gove has used this tactic before to position his guys before striking.

1. shame.
2. what a lost opportunity, Tyrese is a great character in the comics and they seem to have really gotten his character right in the show.

3. umm ok.

I suspect we'll be seeing more of Tyrese and his group before the season ends. No reason to bring on a Comics Fan Favorite just for the little screen time and impact he's had so far.

Look what they did to Michonne and unlike Tyrese she's part of the main cast.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

One thing is confusing. I'm not getting Glenn's over-the-top anger and frustration at everything. Maggie wasn't raped and even told him so but Glenn is still acting like a fool on a rampage.

Right, she's part of the main cast. True, they haen't really given her any lines, but, she's been around the whole season and part of everything. Tyrese, pretty much spent 2 or 3 episodes in a cell, and dug a grave.

I think it's a "Macho" thing. He should've been able to protect her, it happened on his watch, etc, etc. From personal experience, it seems to me that actually is quite a common type of reaction from certain personality types, when something bad happens to their lover or child, it becomes all about them, and their guilt, rather than about the actual victim.

I'd agree, but both of their reactions seem out of proportion to what really happened.

I think this is it exactly. Maggie was humiliated and Glenn couldn't save her. It might even be worse because Maggie was humiliated in order to save Glenn. She rescued him and he really can't deal with it.

That whole interaction between those two seems odd to me, I would have thought it would have brought them closer, not alienating each other.

Exactly. I mean shit, a woman showing her tits in order to save her boyfriend doesn't seem like that big a deal to me.

especially after all they've been through.

And you gotta think nudity isn't such a big deal after they've been camping out for all those months.

The Governor is creepy and I'm sure she wasn't thrilled to take off her shirt for him but come on - it was to save Glenn's life.

They've been camping out for months and have had to kill walkers [the undead] and she and Glenn are having a breakdown over taking off her shirt and showing her tits?

Maybe I'm missing something but the reaction doesn't seem realistic to the circumstances and the other crap they've gone through on both her and Glenn's part.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

^It's not the nudity; it's the helplessness. Both were helpless to do anything for each other. Glenn was ready to die to keep the prison a secret but Maggie told the Governor to save Glenn. They were both victimized by other people, so it's natural for them to feel depressed and angry, but Glenn is having a much hard time than Maggie. I agree with others upthread that it is mostly his male ego that was harmed; he couldn't protect her OR himself and that's where all the anger is coming from.
