The baby was crying a lot and threw up... but I'll be surprised if the baby dies... can't see them going there. If the baby gets sick, I bet they miraculously find a cure at that point.


I think they will kill off the baby IMO. Because once the group gets moving again, I can't see the show worrying about dragging a baby around. I just don't think they will show it.

If they kill the baby, I might be done with this show.

why? it will be unbearably sad, but it's something that would happen in that world.

i don't think they'll do it though. they aren't risk takers that way.

I think it would lend the show credibility and I might actually start watching it again.

Maybe its because I have babies at home and it will be a little too real in that respect. I generally feel the same way in movies where someone kills a dog. It just turns me right off.

I'm cautiously optimistic about this season so far. A lot of the annoying/useless/poorly-written characters (Lori, Andrea, T-Dogg, etc.) are gone, and the remaining/new characters are getting shaded in in reasonably interesting, realistic ways. The show obviously needs to come up with a reason to get them out of the prison so more different/interesting stuff can happen, and I think the infection and/or the zombies eventually caving the fence in are realistic things that could happen in that scenario that would make them leave.

On the negative side, I really wish they had killed off the Governor at the end of last season. I worry that he's going to be re-introduced in a massively stupid way (like he's hiding in the prison and feeding the zombies rats).

As for the first Comic in the "War" Series.....

Pretty slow, hopefully it's just to set up the rest

they keep showing extended shots of individual zombies hanging out by the fence. i'm just hoping one of them is wearing an eye patch at some point.

I feel the same way because I have very young kids. It just kind of hits home.

But it wouldn't turn me off of the show.

ever since i had a kid, i get all mushy about baby stuff. when judith was born on the show, it was extremely sad. but with that said, i love poignancy. and that story would have a ton of it.

I wonder...

Spoiler:
If they will still circle back to how the prison saga ended in the comic, with the Governor finally coming back with a bigger army to take it over and then Beth is the one holding Judith when she's shot in the back and trampled instead of Lori?

Spoiler:
Doubtful, if only because I believe that they already used that story when they drive the truck through the gate last season. If anything, they are basically re-making the Alexandria/Hilltop storylines with the acceptance of more people, Carl not getting along with other kids, etc. I would assume that means that we are due for another Herd, which I guess could be caused by a skirmish with some Governor-led folks.

So different cause, same end result? Would be a huge emotional punch.

And...
Spoiler:
It can't be Alexandria yet, Abraham isn't here yet and we need Eugene to push them north next season. There can still be another attack by some groups outside like the Irish lady that want in.

they thought they were safe - suspect that will no longer be the case, and they might now lock themselves in again, like they did in the 3rd season at the cell block level.

Thats how I interpreted the end of the last season... close, but not exact to the story.

Spoiler:
Or... The Hunters? That was a pretty interesting story line.

It wasn't in the script. She couldn't do it.

finally got caught up after a season 3 marathon viewing. Once they let all the people of woodberry into the prison, I knew we weren't going anywhere soon. Hopefully this infection thing takes care of that so we can move on. The show is so much more interesting when they are traveling and looking for an answer. Theres only so much you can do by having them setup camp for a season.

The only reason they took in the refugees of Woodberry is so the show can kill off characters without killing main characters. Now that there is an indeterminate amount of extra characters, we can have scenes like the outbreak in the prison without losing anyone of importance.

As for who is feeding the zombies, my guess is Carl.

I liked how Carl was losing his humanity. I want him to get back to that.
