    Looks like someone read Yoda's post and decided to cover up Lara Croft.

    Rick's longevity aside, does it seem like he has an unnatural talent for pissing off random strangers? I mean, now he's got a hunting gang after him...

    That, and it was fall time when that episode was shot (did you see some of the leaves falling in the back ground?). So the first shot was during a heat wave...the next episode not so much (though it was only a day or two timewise...if that were Chicago, it'd be "realistic")

    So here's my question about this...Maggie, Bob and Sasha were passing thru the tunnel, going the same direction that Glen and Tara were. They met the swarm and escaped by shooting out the ceiling and causing the cave in. So if that's case, why was the swarm on the exit side of the tunnel? How does that make sense? If it allowed them to escape shouldn't they have trapped the swarm on the entrance side? And WHY would Maggie's group have entered the tunnel in the first place? They weren't chasing anyone in particular. What's an extra day of going around compared to a trek of unknown length through a pitch black tunnel filled with who knows how many walkers. Really the entire plot made no sense to me at all.

    Have any of the cast said how they feel about their reduced number of appearances this season? I wonder what next season's cost cutting measure is going to be.

    Don't think hat was a problem for them...it allowed each of the actors to get some much deeper screen time. Last week's in particular...

    I think they learned from T-Dog...who barely got any screen time when he was on (in fact, it was a running joke among fans). This season's split would have allowed him to shine.

    I would say other WD additions like David Morrissey, Michael Rooker, Scott Wilson, Jeffrey DeMunn, and even Chad L. Coleman have a better track records than Crosby

    Easy, the walkers going after Maggie an company came from behind. She collapsed the cave to stop the leading zombies, the zombies in the rear climbed over too late to grab them, lingered, and was there when Glen showed up.

    Would you complain about getting paid the same and having several weeks off a time like Andrew Lincoln had?

    I'd think that AMC will pour a lot of money now into what will be their only winning franchise - with two shows to air in 2015.

    As an aside, anyone notice the volume of advertising to get people to watch another TV network on last night's show? NBC, TNT, and others ran advertising to turn off AMC and turn on another channel. This is the fist time I remember one network permitting another to run advertising about another show on a competing network.

    In my case it worked - I turned off the Talking Dead and tuned into NBC's Crisis at 10 p.m.

    Crisis seems overproduced and too pretty.

    But I will continue watching if only for Gillian Anderson...:drool:

    :lol: Yea. It's reminiscent of Revolution in many respects - notably the pretty faced young people.

    NBC - for the network that once got drama and comedy so right - they cannot seem to find their sea legs any more.

    Without getting too off-topic, I think Hannibal is the (unfortunately poorly rated) exception...

    Still doesn't add up for me. If they came from behind, how did Maggie's group get past them in the first place? And none of that begins to answer why they would even enter the tunnel in the first place.

    Perhaps the zombies were following them before they got to the tunnel and/or while Maggie was writing on the tunnel wall.

    I have a question. Why does everyone assume that Beth was taken by someone in the car? My first impression after watching that episode was that she escaped in the car on her own. Did I miss something that shows otherwise (a likely possibility)?

    Well, there was that she left her bag. But the bigger thing is the entire half-season of character development and relationship building between her and Daryl that implied that there is ZERO chance she would willingly speed away, by herself or with someone else, and leave Daryl behind.

    As as contrast, here is Forbes' list of the top 10 highest-paid actresses in Hollywood. They list Kristen Stewart as number one and somehow neglected to mention Denise Crosby.

    I don't think she would have left Daryl, especially in light of the fact that they have developed a new closeness. Also her bag was on the ground.
