I really liked the music in this ep. Herschel's best feature in a long time or ever. As soon as I saw that gunshot on the beam, I kept waiting for Rick to scout the perimeter to find a bootprint or something. In this case, I think the idea of the gov may have been scarier than the actual cameo - but I'll take it! Hoo boy! That glimpse of next week's ep reminded me of The Stand's Randall Flagg. Rick almost bought it twice in the ep - saved by others. The little ones are growing up. Or Rick's losing his edge. Or both? Carol was losing the thread. Still damned cruel to exile her. I guess she left him no choice. That would be effin' scary - to start out alone again. How could you even sleep? Great episode.
