Darryl thought they lived by a code and Joe immediately let his emotions over rule and used the code against Darryl by calling him a liar so the crew could beat him to death. He even told Rick pretty much it was at least something to live with.

I was almost positive they were going to make Carl close the door and then shoot him.

I was beginning to think the cannibals were Stormtroopers, with the way they were missing point blank shots...until I figured out they were herding them to a specific location. Interesting that they gave their weapons back. I would think "holding them for safekeeping, but welcome to get them at anytime" would've been a better plan.

I assume their escape hinges on the idea that the cannibals won't actually shoot them.
Rick obviously saw all of the bones and couldn't have missed that no one was shot.

I also didn't see anyone mention that the Walking Dead spinoff - rumored back in November - is now confirmed to be a prequel. New cast, new location and so on:

Also, there is someone who thinks that Breaking Bad is actually a prequel to The Walking Dead. Seriously.

I liked the finale, except for the flashbacks and lame last line. The flashbacks just seemed to sap the momentum out of any building dramatic tension. Everyone who has been watching the show since the beginning knows that Rick is conflicted about doing what it takes to survive in the post-apocalyptic world. We don't need 10 minutes of flashbacks reminding us.

Overall, this 4th season might have been my favorite, even if there were still some poorly executed parts. The character development and pacing of the plot was much better.

Rick going full zombie on the biker dude was so awesome and gives me hope for his mental toughness.

I think if you combined the best parts from 3 and 4 you would have 20 great episodes and not have to waste epsiodes restablishing the governor in S4 to get people to fight for him again.

What Delpen said. That would have been awesome. Also, if Dale had just let Andrea off herself early on, but I digress.

The talking dead preview the other night had a clip for season 5 of Tyrese and Carol. Some are speculating they know the rest of the group is being held in terminus and they are baiting the zombies to follow them to attack to plan an escape and realistically, that's the only way I can see them getting out before they get eaten is if there is mass confusion and an attack of thousands of walkers.

The comic book looks like it's getting interesting again, the last panel of the most recent issue is the most interesting it's been in months.

That TD special was a cruel reminder that it's still a long wait until the new season.

Saw that. That's a pretty good theory.

I get Kirkman updates in Goodreads - is Walking Dead published twice a month?

It is for the summer I think. A lot of comic books go every two weeks in the summer when school's out or did when I had them delivered by mail when I was a kid.

The trailer does look good, though I am a bit baffled that anyone actually believes that that idiot, mulleted "scientist" knows how to cure the outbreak. I guess you need some goal to rally around...might as well be get this idiot to DC.

I just wonder why the scientist doesn't tell everyone else the cure in case, you know, he gets killed before he gets to DC.

Yeah, that pretty much guarantees he doesn't know anything. If you know how to cure the freaking zombie apocalypse, you tell everybody around you so there's the pest chance of that knowledge surviving. Being known as the person to discover the cure is much less important than, you know, saving the world.

The notion that we're supposed to believe that mullet knows the cure and that everyone else on the show buys it as well is gross. The comics are probably more campy, which makes him knowing something more plausible, but in the world that this show lives in, no one is believing this joker.

Abraham, on the show, looks to be the only one completely buying this crap. Glen dismissed it right away, I'd bet Rick is going to use the idea of him knowing the cure and getting to DC as a ploy to escape.

In the comic, they all bought in to it until...

Spoiler:
they found his radio had no batteries in it and Abraham fealt like an idiot.

Watch that new trailer again anyone think Bob is dead when Gerath is talking to rick close and tight.. Bob is either knocked out or stabbed in the neck.

Also one quick shot of Carol in the woods i hope she sticks around, didn't see her in the Group shot sweeping through the church when Rick is holding the Baby. Abraham's shoulder starts the shot, passes everyone but Carol and Bob ends on Maggie.

And why would Mullet not tell anyone???? Ensures his safety. Abraham will defend Him till the end, if we all knew, ehh mullet didn't make it.

I'm fine with the spin-off, I'd be only fine with it if it focused on things far and away from the original cast and not give TWD producers a way to measure who needs to be brought into the main show.
