The only explanation I could see is that they're not used to shooting while under fire and that plays on their accuracy. It's one thing to shoot a zombie coming at you, it's another to shoot guys hundreds of yards away who are shooting back.

Andrea is a total wuss.

Next week's episode looks killer.

Andrea is an idiot. Yes, the guy with fish tanks full of heads and a zombie daughter has more credibility than Rick, Darryl, Glen and Herschel.

I like how Merle was given the crap job of letting Andrea out of the gate :)

And last week established Darryl as the alpha so I think Merle keeps himself in line and Darryl won't let him step over it. He was already apparently willing to kill him over some random Mexicans, no way he lets Merle hurt his new family.

So I guess Tyrese will show them how to get in. Poor guy. Maybe we will see a parallel to the comic.

The look Michone gave Andrea when she saw what she did to her guard walker was great.

Ahhhhhh I didn't watch the episode and came into this thread. I only read the first sentence of DelPen's post before catching myself, so nothing really groundbreaking there. :pop:

This is a plot hole to me. Why would you send the guy WITH ONE HAND to open and close the gate with a key entry padlock on it? Seems like a dexterous job for someone with, I don't know, two hands to me...

Spoiler:
Did I miss something or did they completely skip the resolution to last week's episode? I thought it ended with Rick and co/ under fire from the Governer, Merle and Daryl saving Rick, and some mysterious person jumping out of the truck and letting all the walkers loose on the prison? And then this week's episode just began with them all talking in the prison after fending all them off? I feel like I really missed something somewhere because they never explained who was the person driving the van through the gate or how everyone fought the walkers off...

The Tom Waits song at the end was a nice touch.

^spoiler in original, covers the 2-24-13 ep.

yeah, they didn't resolve those questions... I asked myself something similar, as where did the driver of the van go, when seeing the yard during one of the scenes in Sunday's ep. (we watched last night)

Question: if I missed last week's episode, do I really need to go back and watch it, or will I be caught up after the intro to next weeks episode?

You would probably be caught up but just go ahead and watch it.

i think you could just edit andrea out of the entire series and it wouldn't miss a beat. and since this episode was extremely andrea-centric, you can guess what my answer would be.

This may be true, but I never skip an episode because there is usually one really "messed up" gross out type kill that I would never want to miss out on. Like the "trunk kill" on the bridge when the brothers were out on their own. Last weeks episode had a pretty good kill by Andrea. Really was a set up episode for future events with Tyrese at least that you may miss out on.

And this previous episode is no different. A nice little curb stomp scene that showed a lot more than I thought it would.

Yes, that is the one I was referring to. American History X, anyone?

If you skip Sunday's episode you won't see Andrea's shadowy naked butt. That should play heavily in your decision. ;)

Good episode so far.
It's to be expected that one would go "crazy."

So Rick won't even slow down to talk to the seemingly sane hiker who is begging for help but he wants to force the insane guy who just tried to kill them and wants to die to join his group at the prison. :face:

Was thinking the samething. This week is basically a throw away episode.

Yeah, pretty much. I was very happy that Michonne is getting some lines and seems pretty much like a real person. That made the ep worthwhile as far as I'm concerned.

People complain about a lack of character development and then there's complaining when it actually happens?

Ehh......

I just find Carl annoying. But I mean the story wasn't advanced at all. I'd go more into depth, but I can't post spoilers from my phone.
