The knocked-out guy might recognize Rick, but given being passed out and the struggle he was in it's unlikely he'd remember Rick.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

the timeline has me all confused. Bob was with Maggie and Sasha but when he runs into Glen and Daryl (when did they get together?) he was alone and said that he was with 2 other groups and he is the only one left. So what happened to the girls and when? Or was that from the past? Was he lying when he said that the walker only got his bandage when it bit him, or is he a zombie bomb waiting to go off? Poor Beth was so optimistic, saying that she thought most people were so nice that it was inevitable that she run into some nasties.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

The pre-credits scene was in the past when Glenn and Daryl originally met Bob. Note that Daryl asks the same "three questions" he asked the Irish chick he ran into at the beginning of the season. (Also note Daryl has his poncho and his motorcycle.)

Bob couldn't have been lying when he said the Walker bite only got his bandage, he would have started feeling the effects of the "active" strain of the zombie virus/infection and been dead from it by now.

You mean Daryl asked the three questions that RICK asked the Irish girl.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

When Bob was sitting up the next morning as Sasha was getting up after the walker only bit his bandage, I thought he was a zombie but after the next night when he tried to sleep I knew that wasn't the case. He would have been a zombie by then.

If that's the case, he knows what Ricks looks like, so now I wonder if the group is looking for Rick because he killed the guy in the bathroom.
...and while guns of a certain make are cookie-cutter, in the world of zombies, where supplies/weapons are limited, Joe's group might notice the weapon in Rick's possession as being the one carried by the now-dead member.

If the group runs into/captures Rick, they might test Daryl's loyalty by demanding that he kill Rick or Carl...rape Michonne...in other words, something stomach turning. Of course, Daryl will try to find a way out for himself and his friends, and with that, a possible part of a season cliffhanger, while the other prison refugees encounter their own nightmares at Terminus.

So if Darryl heads to Terminus then that makes Beth the only one of the main group you are not sure about where she going and what's happening to her.
Do you think the car was heading for Terminus, and that the driver has...odd taste in....meat?

Maybe the person in the car was the person who ran the funeral home?

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

Really enjoyed this episode. This stuff might not be a little quieter than the stuff in Woodbury and the prison, but it has been some nice character stuff. It will be interesting to see what happens when everyone gets back together, we seem to be seeing some pretty big shifts in the relationships.
Before the season started I read about some of the post-prison stuff from the comics on Wikipedia, and now I'm wondering if the gang that Rick & Daryl have run into

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

^I'm actually going to be really disappointed if that's not the case.

I enjoyed this episode, I think it's much better when it focuses on different groups of people. I was a bit confused at the beginning but I liked how it played into the episode.Yes Bob,it does matter what kind of people you run into (as Daryl is going to find out soon I'm sure).

I like the idea that Beth was taken by the person who owned the house.

I was thinking it could be another comic's character -

Now that is a possibility....and a turning point for Rick's group, considering how that arc ended.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

Here's the latest timeline: http://i.imgur.com/Q9iRdPH.jpg

I doubt Glenn's group could have walked that distance back even in two days unless they were driving really slow or had to constantly stop to push stuff out of the way. Or if they took minimal breaks and little time for sleep (which is unlikely given Glenn's condition, and I don't care what kind of shape you're in, walking all day would be rough).

I'm just hungry for some more deaths. If and when they're all reunited, the cast is way too big-
Rick, Carl, Michonne, Glenn, Abraham, Rositia, Eugene, Lily, Maggie, Bob, Sasha, Daryl, Beth, Tyreese, Carol, and those two kids (I can't remember their names off hand)
That's 17, 18 if you count Judith

I'll be disappointed if there isn't a little slaughter of that number by the end of the season.
I think the cast is kept at a healthy size just so that people can be killed off more easily. I mean if you think of when the show started, it was: Rick, Lori, Carl, Shane, Morgan, Duane, Glenn, Andrea, Amy, Dale, T-Dog, Carol, Ed, Sophia, Daryl, Merle, Jim, Jacqui, and the Morales family (4). That's more than we have now, and they managed. I think we can guarantee a death by season's end.

Probably a bit of a stretch to call Morgan, Duane and Merle cast members in the first season. They were in one episode each right?

Well, Hershel was killed off, so of the main characters (meaning the season 1 & 2 survivors), there's not many left. However, I expect another death before the season's end--or a trick cliffhanger leading to an equally expected season 5 premiere death.

The would-be shock value is wearing thin, since the audience is well aware the producers go for gruesome character abuse as a stand-in for drama.

What's next for this show?

1. Carol kills Lizzie when she realizes the girl is a sadistic monster?

2. Tyrese learns Carol killed Karen and David--but understands why neutralizing a threat was logical....and either helps Carol kill Lizzie, or takes on the job himself?

3. Lizzie kills Mika (and/or Judith)--but tells the adults that "don't worry--she will be back!" thus setting her doom in motion?

4. The prison refugees--all travelling on foot--arrive at Terminus and are offered food--only to discover their meal is Beth--who would have arrived earlier thanks to being in a car? Judith?

5. Joe's gang are the Hunters, and to pay Rick back, cut off his hand and eat it? Daryl--now losing all of the hope restored by Beth--now sort of accepts Joe's "hurting other people" idea...by attacking his former friends?

We know this season will end with the mini-resolution of season 3, so we know this will go out with a grisly, beating over the head bang.

...just what kind of bang? Any of the five theories above--or something else?

Maybe. But in those episodes they were more developed than a few of the current cast. Morgan and Merle were at least wondered about when they would return.
