Maybe nobody dies but Rick looses a hand or something.

As I did back in the Carol justified/unjustified debate, I predict Carol comes back (again) and saves everybody's behinds.

Frankly, that just seems like they'd be making thier own job that much more difficult for however many more seasons TWD remains on the air.

Agreed. I know Rick loses his hand in the comics during his encounters with The Governor but I don't see them doing that to him in the series. It'd be just that much more they'd have to mess with or write around for the rest of the series.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

Was anyone else disappointed that Rick's "let's check this place out first" consisted of them walking around in the woods for about 5 minutes? Hell, I would have done a complete circuit of the place and used binoculars while studying their comings and goings for at least a day.

We don't know that their checking of the place out didn't consist of at least walking around the place and taking a closer look over the course of an hour or so. Just that that doesn't make for very compelling television so they glossed over it.

As for watching over them for a full day, I don't know how practical that would have been given the situation they were in. IIRC they were burning daylight as it was, they didn't know the kind of patrols the place would have, nor is camping out entirely safe to do with walkers about. Coming in the back door, ahem, though was a pretty good idea.

Not that that has stopped anyone on the show before.

Aren't there, like, tons of feral pigs roaming around the south? And, without humans hunting them, shouldn't there be more wildlife? Life After People stuff?

It's not like you see them on every street corner down here. And only 2 years "after people" there wouldn't be that big a population explosion of pigs yet.

We've seen the Walkers eating a Cow and a horse, so, odds are, the wild Pigs would also have to watch out for Walkers.

Oh, and also, wasn't Rick tossing infected Pigs out to feed The Walkers to herd them?

Here's a thought. If your son's safety was important to you, you might value placing him in at least as safe a location as you did your stash of guns

Why not have Michonne & Carl stay hidden & have Rick & Daryl go in on their own? Then if all is safe, head out & retrieve them, and maybe have a deadline like sundown, where if contact hasn't been reestablished, they'll know something went wrong. The same holds true for the folks in Glenn's group, who had twice as many people & a military guy who I'd hope is familiar with the notion of recon

Oh, and next you'll be saying they should have had a group-wide agreed upon meet-up place should anything happen to the prison! Pfft, planning and strategy in the Zombie Apocalypse. Ha!

Didn't they do that after the farm burnt down?

"Sorta" it seemed like they all just met-up back on the highway where they left the stuff for Sophia. It didn't seem like a plan so much as it just worked out that way. (Andrea, for example, didn't have Michonne take her there.)

But they obviously didn't have any plan laid out in a situation where the prison needed to be evacuated.
