He has already proven he would be a great zombie, he likes gnawing on people when they are still alive.

Good episode.

The parallels between the show and the comic are pretty close at times just in a different order and different people.

For instance I predict the same fate will befall Beth and Judith the same way it did with Lori and Judith in the comic with next week's events.

I hope the season finale ends the Governor's story line as to me it's dragging on too long.

I think Woodbury with be the Comic's Alexandria.
Please Use spoiler code for Spoilers, many of us haven't read the comics.

Just because an event happened in the comic doesn't mean it will happen on the show.

For instance the whole Morgan story was barley even the same as what happened in the comic.

AND if you haven't read the comic then how can you be spoiled if you have no idea what happened in them?

I was disappointed in Rick for deciding to give up Michonne, but at least he ultimately made the right decision and did it on his own.
Yeah, I would have thought he'd realized already from his face-to-face with the Governor that giving up Michonne would change nothing.

Terminate with the most extreme prejudice imaginable! Shane was considered too dangerous to live.... and he hadn't committed anywhere close to the kinds of atrocities that the Governor has without even blinking. As long as the Governor lives, even if he is in captivity there is always the threat of his escaping and causing more harm to other people. This isn't like chasing Saddam Hussein out of town and then, out of sheer dumb luck, finding him hiding in a foxhole out in the middle of nowhere some weeks later.

I'm talking about capturing and disarming him (literally, with Michonne's kitana) and then feeding him to the walkers. Don't even bother putting a bullet in his head. That's far too merciful for him. Just stand back and let him scream as the walkers tear the flesh off his bones. Then maybe, if there's enough of his brains left to trigger reanimation, you let Glenn or Daryl turn on their hardcore mode and smash the Governor's skull in.

You just spit out that Lori and baby died together in the comics, with no warning whatsoever, that's a spoiler.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Interview with Gale Anne Hurd.

Some interesting stuff. David Morrissey was recommended to them by Andrew Lincoln. They planned to bring Morgan back earlier but couldn't because of the actor's availability. There aren't any spoilers for the finale.

Psst... just so ya know, Lori is already dead and the baby didn't die with her.


AND I never said they died, for all you know their fate was to fall in a big pile of cow shit.

Thanks for spoiling it for us all that they die together in the comic, can you use a spoiler tag next time?

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

so in all that discussion about the gas going bad and becoming unusable, did anyone bring up that all the batteries in these abandoned cars are going to be dead?

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Presumably not all the cars were abandoned at the same time. It's just that our characters always stumble upon a vehicle that's still usable because it was only recently abandoned.

For instance, some of the walkers at the motel where Merle hot-wired the car may have been recently using that car, when they succumbed to something or other.

or not. Every vehicle they try has a live battery in it. You would think once in a while they would get in one that has a dead one.

They would only stumble over a dead battery if it were a plot point, or to put the characters in jeopardy.
