Where are they coming from? It's like Halloween in the suburbs. They're out there and you don't notice their actual numbers until you start giving away candy.

By the way, anyone know what happened to the female doctor from Woodbury? She was not part of the misguided attack party in the season 3 finale, so she had to be at Woodbury when Rick's gang liberated the survivors....

Well to be fair to them, the fences had been doing a perfectly fine job for awhile of keeping the zombies out. And there was a double layer of them. So they probably didn't see any urgent need to construct something else.
I'm pretty sure they mentioned concerns a few times last season about walker build up at the fences so this isn't something that is taking them by surprise.

Also didn't episode one mention they have had this community for six months now and very little if anything has been done in that time to beef up the parameter around the prison.

We saw a small garden, a pig pen and some traps set in the woods but that is about it, as many people as they brought back that little bit of stuff could have been set up and started in a few days.

Now that I think about it - didn't the Governor and his group blow up the towers when they tried to overtake the prison? Amazing they got rebuilt so quickly without the benefit of a welding torch.
I thought they only blew up one.

How about pulling back some of those old cars a creating another barrier away from the fence?
I'm thinking they should park a line of trucks behind the fence and leave them there permanently to shore it up. Even an intermittent line of vehicles would provide enough reinforcement that zombies could never knock the fence over (although the fencing material itself could corrode or break eventually).
A continuous line of vehicles would practically suffice as a fence of its own when the fencing material showed signs of wear.

Sounds like a LOT of vehicles if you mean the entire fence.

They have gone through cars like socks on this show, so there's plenty around. Almost every scene on some deserted highway reveals many abandoned cars.

Maybe they should find a train yard or something and haul shipping containers to the prison using big rigs. Unload them along the entire fence. Maybe even do two rows of them, and build a chute for the dead to follow that leads to a pit where they can burn the walkers to ash once they get several in.

Again, you think way outside of the time and resources they have. Big rigs, train yards, cranes, bulldozers? That's all outside of the scope of the time and resources they have at their disposal.

I watched the rat feeding scene again. I lean towards the adult theory. The height matches up better, both with the actual feeding and the flash light.

Thing is, if it's an adult then it'd have to be someone we already know and I can't see any of them doing it. Aside from one of the two young girls I think the only realistic suspects are Beth (she always was a bit twitchy) and Carl (also twitchy.) I suppose it could be one of the new people, but we haven't spent enough time with any of them to make it an interesting twist.

I watched it again last night too, they went out of their way to not show a hand so we couldn't tell if it was man, woman or child, black or white.

IMO They also never showed how tall or short the person was because you couldn't tell if the zombie was leaning over or not.

Did you see the teaser for next week with like 7500 walkers? They come from urban Georgia. As food in metro areas is depleted, they would begin moving to outer regions, along major roadways, because they're more easily traversable. Plus, that little tribal world war between Woodbury & the prison 6 months earlier likely alerted any walker in a 20 mile radius. All suggestions indicate that the prison is near Senoia GA, just 20 or 30 miles down Rte 85 from Atlanta, right in a triangle of Macon, Columbus & Atlanta. If you started slugging along in a herd of thousands it could take that long maybe, following sounds like cars, helicopters, gun fire & anything else these people have had going on there in the last 3 seasons. You have to admit, that area around Woodbury & the prison has likely been more active with noise than just about anywhere else in the whole region of that triangle

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

I have a question:

Early in season 3 Carol practices a C-Section on a Walker cadaver in preparation for Lori's labor. While doing this we get a POV shot of someone watching her from the wooded area outside the prison. Was it ever clearly revealed who this was? It's unlikely it was The Governor, could this mysterious person be the one who was feeding the Walkers outside the prison? Or am I forgetting something in S3 that revealed who this was?

Pretty sure that was the prisoner who tried to kill them all a few episodes later.
