Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

I doubt that Carl and Rick thought everyone was dead. They just had more pressing priorities to deal with first.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

Carl seemed to imply it with his monologue to Rick when he said, "They're all gone now" and "You couldn't protect them." And he puts Judith*, Hershel, and Lori, in the same sentence as Daryl, Glenn, Michonne and Maggie. It could be viewed either way, but I think Carl was concerned that everyone else was dead.

* Because he believes her to be dead. I think she's actually alive.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

A meetup place would be useless if there happened to be a mega herd of zombies there that day

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

It's possible, maybe even dramatically probable, but I'll be surprised if we see that baby. Things are supposed to get grim

As for a feasible rendezvous point, I suppose if it were me, maybe a nearby barn or house that is a few hours walk from the prison, make a map to show everyone, a place they could hide out & maybe defend for a night or two. People were coming & going from that prison for quite some time. They should know the area well enough for that

Yeah, the way they split up, it could be days or weeks before any of them randomly reconnect, if ever. If there was something, anything for them to go on, it could have been much less, maybe even a same day regroup

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

maybe they do have a meetup plan but are all convinced they others are dead. In one of the previews Beth is arguing to Daryl that someone else must have survived. Above Ryan makes a good argument that Carl thinks everyone else is dead. Michonne seems pretty overwhelmed to find someone alive.

Yeah, that all sounds theoretically good, but I don't really think there are such places.
Sure there are. What about the neighborhood they are in now, which seemed to be no more than a day or so's walk away. It's really no stretch of the imagination to say they should have had a planned general area that they made their way to in case of absolute emergency.

Very few of the "inmates" were leaving the prison and quite likely wouldn't know the area that well. Also, just because there were no walkers in that neighbourhood today doesn't mean there won't be 5000 of them there tomorrow.

Or 5000 yesterday. I mean maybe that's the place that the walkers that kept coming to the prison were coming from. Prior experiences with the suburbs were that they were somewhat dangerous, potentially much more so. I wouldn't be surprised if they did encounter this place on their travels, but the streets were full of walkers.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

I found it a little wierd that after many months living at the prison, that the Biker Bar, the surrounding neighborhoods, and everywhere Rick and Michonne and Carl were this week hadn't been absolutely picked over by that point. These were all withing walking / limping distance of the prison, and while the houses had been visibly ransacked there was plenty of stuff left over. The Walmart or whatever from earlier this season was also pretty healthily stocked...

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

It really depends on how many people are in the surrounding area. From the prison group point of view, individual houses would be low priority (and more dangerous) compared to large facilities such as the big box stores.

Beat me to it.
Also remember Rick and crew said they were doing a spiral pattern (around the prison) for several months (between seasons 2 and 3) before they actually found the prison, they were reduced to cans of dog food.
Rick and Carl could not have gotten more than a few miles from the prison the way Rick was moving, so that area they settled in should have been picked clean a dozen times over.


Also here is an international trailer that has a few more tidbit scenes from upcoming episodes AND
