Anyone have a clue what Bob was eating in his pre-prison flashback scene at the beginning of the episode? The photo below makes it look like pink cake frosting, but IIRC the white container was larger (like the size of a cup). I should watch the scene again.

No guesses anyone?? I always have such random questions when it comes to this episode, lol.

He was drinking cough syrup in a later scene. I wouldn't be surprised if it was something that'll get him high. Any hair gels do that?

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

Did anyone else notice that the leaves covering the road where Daryl was running suddenly just stopped in a perfect line? Is it possible this is something that was supposed to be added in post and slipped through the cracks?

And put me down as being surprised Daryl just flung the door open without looking. Other than that, I really enjoyed the episode. The last one too. I don't feel they are filler at all.

I got from the way they reacted when they heard the cans rattle that it wasn't the second or even third time that that dog had come to the door. To me it seemed like there was a look of exasperation in their faces when they heard, like it had been happening all night. That would make a little more sense as to why Daryl would be confident enough that it was just the dog again that he didn't have to check

I was also surprised Daryl flung the door open without looking through the cracks to see if things were clear. lol

Like you, I also don't think the the episode was that bad.

At this point, I don't feel any of the characters are 'safe.' Anyone can go down at this point since the show has long diverged from the graphic novels. Many characters we thought were safe because they were main, strong characters were killed off (e.g. Hershel). Even though Daryl is one of the popular characters, he looks as if he can go down at any point if he's not careful....

So, if he thought it was the dog why even open the door, then? Or even get-up to check, why not ignore it? And why make this "alarm" if you're not going to check out the window whenever it goes off even if you think it's just a dog? And ESPECIALLY when you can see the moving, human-sized, shadows out the windows?

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

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.

Good episode, but dammit! This show is just biding its time to the finale isn't it?
Yes...and more shocks than you can shake a now-former-cast-member at!

I may have to succumb to the "romance" idea building between Beth and Daryl, though it still icks me out a bit considering the likely age gap between the characters.
As I've said before, no one sees a problem with this, as it happens in real life. It is routine.

Timeline-wise Daryl encounters this other group I'm pretty sure a day or two AFTER the group's encounter where Rick was hold up at.
Maybe. If the man Rick killed and the strangled guy (bedroom floor) were not among the group that found Daryl, then we can assume it is post-Rick's house.

No idea where Beth was taken or who she is with but. again, the "taken to be killed/raped" by this group thing doesn't hold up because they should be a day or two after when Rick met up with this group a couple weeks ago.
Additionally, the car's windows appeared to be blacked out (even for a night shot), along with the cross. If the driver was the owner of the funeral home, it would seem he has nothing to do with Joe's group.

I think viewer expectation--set up by over the top telegraphing dialogue (not to mention the casket scene) in this and the previous episode--could see Beth surviving, while her boyfriend does not...

The guy who was strangled and passed out by the unseen bed-jacker was seen among the group that finds Daryl, not to mention their leader. (The guy with the annoying tennis ball in that episode.) The guy who was strangled was only strangled until he passed out, not until he died. We hear/see him breathing not long after he passes out.

Yeah, it was. Heck, the viewer could see the outlines of moving figures through the cracks between the boards even before Daryl opened the door. It's pretty ridiculous that Daryl didn't notice.
I wonder why Daryl did not try to get to the second story with Beth; walkers shamble and at the top of the stairs, Daryl could have picked them off almost in a one-by-one manner. Or kick one down, taking the rest with it.

Then I put the two together.

Someone figured out an easy way to bag themselves a prisoner.
...yeah, but would YOU take that chance, not knowing who was inside? For all the driver knew, the occupants could have come out spraying everything in sight with high powered weaponry. Dangerous chance...or convenient scripting.

Agreed, this is what I was saying a few weeks back, stop creating scenarios from the characters doing something stoopid because of your sloppy writing skills.

I'm thinking it's common sense for

1. You to look through the crack of the boards nailed to the door, if I could "someone" through them sitting on my couch then surly you could see them with your face at the door.

2. If the dog is skittish to begin with, why would you snatch the door open and scare it?
I'd crack the door open slowly then squat down with food in my hand and look as small and non-threatening as I could.

That's why you bait the place with the dog. See what their response is. You set this place as a trap & just sit back & observe, & what they saw was one man with a crossbow, carrying an injured girl on his back into the house. That's when you decide if it's worth the risk to capture someone for nefarious intentions

The whole thing is a setup. Someone baits the fish with a barking dog 2 or 3 times & then lures in walkers to cause havoc so they can abduct someone with the waiting car

It is a bit hard to swallow Daryl not double checking the door, but if you listen carefully when he gets up from the table, you can hear the dog barking along with the can alarm. The dog is probably part of the setup. Trained to bark or flea on command

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.

Also, notice that they met Darryl at the train tracks so they could have been tracking Rick up the railroad tracks and that would bring them also to 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.

That's a likely circumstance. I've been thinking that myself, except, I've been thinking this will all come to a head before they get to Terminus
