Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Wow that was epic, went by so fast! Almost seems like a season finale rather than a 4th episode. It's a shame T-Dog died, he seemed to be getting more lines recently.

In a sneak clip, seen on Talking Walking Dead, Ms. M- has her sword back and threatens the governor with it.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

That episode was brutal. I was so tense.

Lori's ending was just wow. She sacrificed herself to save the tot. Her goodbye with Carl really got me.

Why did Maggie not give Carl the tot and check Lori's vitals and shoot her? Granted cutting a person open must have been mind blowing even after all they have been through, but, don't leave the woman's kid to dispatch her.

I just have to ask the comic book readers. Is Axel a rapist? I am getting that vibe from the show.

Going to go back and read the rest of the thread. I had Dish so picked up season 3 a little behind everyone.

There is another prisoner I could mention that tangentially addresses this question, but I'm going to refrain from doing so, even in spoiler code, on the chance that tv show Axel might be given that character's actions.

^Don't worry, someone a couple pages back already answered the second part, also in spoiler code.

Powerful episode... but I have to wonder. Lori died... from having her abdomen cut open? Because at the time I just thought she lost consciousness
C-section with proper entry to avoid major arteries, no clamps, no transfusion in case she lost too much blood...in other words, unless she somehow forced a normal vaginal birth, she was doomed.

Even if she was back in the cell with Carol and the limited medical supplies, her chances were not good.

All of that because she screwed the (thankfully long gone) beady-eyed psychopath. I guess that was her price to pay.

The fundamental nature of this universe is that the zombie plague is an unknown that can't won't be answered. It's not a plot point, the interactions of the survivors are. If anything, I hope that they don't ever decide to explain anything about the plague. It's here, it's happening, it won't ever be cured. Deal with it.



Mark
Same name of character too....from your spoilers, as was killed in episode 2.

I was surprised that T-Dog died as I always figured he was just a crew member who accidentally wandered onto the set from time to time.

^^ Indeed.

Oh, I agree there was little chance of survival for a woman prone to needing a c-section, but she died like almost immediately after the incision & not long after she'd had some kind of rupture which was revealed on Maggie's hand

It just seemed a little forced. Nobody even checked her pulse

people keep going on about that but I don't know how it makes any difference. They didn't wait for Dale to die either. She was bleeding to death, there was no way to save her at that point, why draw it out.

Lori was internally bleeding. Maggie had to do an emergency caesarian section to save the child. This wasn't the first time that Lori had a difficult pregnancy. There was the scar of a formal c-section. One of the quotes I saw in the commentary episode was that the actress who played Lori believed that her character knew the pregnancy was a death sentence.

I have the question about the promo.

In the promo, there appeared to be a new type of walkers. These walkers were seen in a fence and in a close-up. They had a different skin color and appeared more aggressive than the normal walker. Is there anything in the comic about this type of walker?

Now, another question.

Walkers eat flesh. They don't eat flesh, they starve. They starve more slowly than the living. How do the walker bodies digest the meat?

As for the governor, I don't know how much of his past life he revealed was real. Even the photo was suspect. A person can photoshop themselves into a picture.

For myself, I believe that with greater numbers, and with adding more people to the mix, a group has a better chance of surviving. If a person proves a threat to the group, the group can punish the wrong-doer. This is why I am having trouble understanding why either Rick or the Governor are so bent on eliminating potential new members, than adding them. I think killing the soldiers was an idiotic move. The soldiers were trained in combat - far more than the civilians, and could have taught the civilians new skills and tactics. On the other hand, considering how poorly the soldiers performed when surprised by civilians, maybe killing these soldiers might have been a good idea. (Were these soldiers regular army or were they national guard? I can't remember)
I agree with you. That would make sense.

The problem is that the governor is more like a cult leader. He's recruiting people who've been isolated and are looking for security. A group that's made it on their own and bonded are too hard to bring under his control. A group that sticks together in his new society is a threat to his position as "savior."
