I'm not so sure about that. Michonne's chained walkers seemed to be used as "bloodhounds" to sense the presence of other walkers (to avoid). As a living human, she would not need them to detect other humans, so they would only serve one purpose.

I think that's how Michonne used her chained walkers. What other purpose would they serve--or possess some advantage she lacks?

The premise is that society has been destroyed and there is nothing left but little groups of survivors. Either you accept the initial premise of the show or you don't. Wanting them to go back and explain the premise a few season's in just isn't what the show is.

Besides, I think everyone is missing the most important aspect of the episode, Daryl is back and saw Merle for what he really is in less than one episode.

Anyone thinking Merle will go the backstabber route and try to turn on Daryl and the rest if he thinks the Governor's group stands to win their little war?

I thought it was more to be able to 'mingle' among the biters by masking the scent of a living person...

Not in any of the episodes I watched. At most we could infer that she kept them to mask her own scent and even that was never concretely established. The actual reason she kept them was never revealed.

I interpretted it as being the same as smearing zombie guts on yourself, she was using them to mask her savory-ness from other Zombies.

Though it is true as Borgminister and Sojourner have stated that she never did clearly answer why she had her "pets", they could just be her family members she couldn't bare to be parted from, could be why she understand the Governor so well. (I'm leaning towards masking though)

How did the goveners guy get in one of the guard towers?? They are all behind the fence and with Michonne, Hershal and Rick around the paremeter wouldn't they notice if some one got thru the fence to get to the guard tower.

Hopefully they can fix the fences doors and put some type of Jersey barriers in an offset pattern to prevent a direct run at the gate again. Most miltary bases do this so a vehicle has to slowly drive around them to get by.

I think it's funny how Merle is full of malice but seems low on guile and deceit. Like he's very upfront to everyone about being an asshole even when it's not to his advantage.

Guess he didn't learn about guile and deceit from his time with the governor.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

The prison is not secured. This was established in the second episode with the prison. The side with the administration building is wrecked. The "tombs" are overrun by zombies.

I saw the truck Glenn was driving, and I was like, "Whoa, that was one nice looking truck. Look at how clean and shiny it is."

I don't think the Grimes Clan is capable of taking on Woodbury. They are suffering from borderline starvation, are low on ammunition, and have fewer numbers than the Governors' Clan.

...Unless they do what Glenn wants and kills the Governor - crushing the head of the snake. The Woodburyans are sheep by every account, and deliberately so; even Andrea can motivate them with a brief soapbox speech. Remove the Governor (and I'm guessing Martinez) and the rest will fall in line.

they've spent too much energy getting the governor established, they have to use him a bit before the off him

I thought Michonne was using the disarmed walkers to carry her stuff. They were pack animals for her.

practically everyone knows you have to shoot them in the head.
That didn't work in "Return of the Living Dead."

I think both the "masking" and "pack animal" theories are true. No reason it has to be just one thing. Plus there's one more: Andrea mentioned how she could just slaughter them and her response was, "It was easier than you can imagine." I don't think they were beloved family members. I think they were abusers/abductors/someone she hated. She was keeping them around to torment them.

Before his attack on the prison there was a chance for the character to develop a little and for the story to evolve into something more than the two groups trading bullets. Now that he has declared war on our group there is really only one direction for this to go and that is a shame considering there is no "overall plot" to fall back on.
