It was a great episode, especially the great opening foreshadowing scene.

Where the hell was Judith at the end when they left? Seems like they forgot her at the house, surely she wasn't in any of the bags they where carrying.

Dude....she's wrapped up in a blanket on Tyrese's back.

thinking about this last episode...it's such a shame that those kids were so horrible. having a couple of actors that you actually didn't want to die would have been so gut wrenching. wasted opportunity to do something really big there. thankfully whoever plays carol really picked up the slack and kept the episode on track.

I think whoever plays Judith is horrible too. She just sits there and says and does nothing.

I liked Lizzie's kind of crazy. She was all set to turn Judith but agreed with Carol's logic that since she can't walk yet there was no point. She also appologized and thoguht Carol was mad for pointing the gun at her and not for butchering her sister. I thought the actress delivered most of her stuff well, I think some of the dumber writing came aross as dumb and no one could fix that.

But overall, another good Gimple written episode.

As I said a couple weeks ago, I generally like what they're trying to do in the back half of this season; the execution is just a little clunky at times. Last week (?), I was actually a little sad when Beth got kidnapped, because I know more about her character and also got the sense that Daryl was really starting to like her. Before these past several episodes, I couldn't remember her name, even though she's been in the main group since season 2. This week, I thought they did a pretty good job re-emphasizing and furthering the development of Carol's character with regard to how losing her daughter fundamentally changed her and how taking care of these two girls plays into that.

I think it's also an interesting angle, especially as the show keeps going on further and further past the initial outbreak, to consider what it would be like for a kid to grow up in that world.

Yeah, I thought the girl did a great job for what she was given. She was a 10 year old girl who had to make her character appear detached and unstable, but not make it too plainly obvious she was a total sociopath until this past episode. I thought she pulled it off well.

If we're talking bad actors, the kid who plays Carl is by far the worst on the show.

If Glen is going to continue to be so dumb, should we care if he dies?

One of the most frustrating things about this show for me is that the characters seem to act irrationally for the sole purpose of getting into a life and death situation with walkers... makes it hard to buy that the same people who made those stupid decisions could possibly have survived this long in a zombie apocalypse.

I enjoyed this episode for the most part. I have to say though, when Glen was on the hill of fallen concrete, he was in a great position to let the zombies walk up to him, stab them in the head and drop them one after another after another and never be in harm's way. Instead they decide to sneak past the zombies even though the girl can barely walk. Don't know why the writer's make the characters so stupid.

The entire tunnel sequence ruined the episode for me. Between the stupid decision to even go into the tunnel, let alone those made inside of it, down to a group conveniently including Maggie wandering in at just the right moment to save them from their stupidity... wtf.

Glen and Maggie meeting up was supposed to be the big emotional payoff for those characters, but instead of them just meeting at Terminus, they have to rush it by creating that ridiculous situation.
