What happened between eps 2 when you were in the prison, and eps 3…all of a sudden they are not in the prison, and this black chick appears with all new members? what the heck?

It’s a very good point. I’d forgotten that myself. He was sent to poke around on his own, so his Mom being upset that he found something good was dumb…But him running away like an eight year old to pout is wimpy…But he did come back to stand guard later and was ready to grease Hershel, so he’s got that going for him….which is nice.

The So it wasn’t like he went wondering around without anyone knowing he was gone. Carl just decided that since he was already out there to go look for supplies that Herschel desperately needed.

Just like they did on the farm. I guess they save money from production costs to fund the other AMC shows such as Hell on Wheels, MadMen and Breaking Bad.

Extactly. Shane, Lori, and Carl met Carol and her family on the run. They joined together with the belief that there is safety in numbers. Later, they met other survivors and joined with them. What guarantee did any of the group memebers have that they would be safe from one another? None.

Shane has always harbored these feelings of being better than Rick. Think back to the conversation they had while in the woods. Think back to the conversation he had with Lori on the water tower. If the world had not turned upside down, and had Rick and Lori’s marriage kept deteriorating, I do think that Shane would have made a play for her. The entire zombie apocalypse did not make Shane the way he was. If anything, I think this new time amplifies the qualities that we have inside us.

My thing is this, everyone was a stranger at some point in time, and they were allowed in. Everyone still has the potential to be a betrayer. I respect the things that you have had to say and now I will get off of this issue with you. I don’t want you think that I am goading you into commenting.

Too bad it was just him putting down another walker though and not putting the shot on a still living Shane.

I simply said that allowing him to get eaten by zombies was an especially cruel way to do it. Also, I don’t think that Rick shoud be winning any humanitarian awards for making people beg for their lives when he’s holding a gun to their heads.

But you are right, With Shane gone, making the tough life-or-death decisions has fallen on to Rick’s shoulders. Last season at the farm, it would have been easy to condemn Shane for letting Otis die, but it was the only thing Shane could have done to save Carl’s life.

It will be interesting to see how the Governor will play in to the show. From the previews, he seems like a character that will be different than the comic, that he is similar to Rick in that he’ll do anything to protect his town.

I think he was pretty clear that Shane was trying to kill him first. He did the right thing, and Lori should have known that he was already struggle with the fact that he had to kill his best friend, and instead of supporting him and being there for him, she acts like she would have prefered that Shane had killed Rick. It’s no wonder Rick doesn’t want to talk to her now, but I don’t get why if she realizes her mistake, why not just cut the BS and apologize for it straight up and see if Rick still has love for her… To me it seems simple enough… Sorry for being such a girl focusing on the romance, but I take my relationships seriously so it bugs me to see couples in movies or shows behave this way…

You can’t keep a guy around who is looking for any chance to kill you. He spared the others, even when the guy refused to answer him and instead said he wouldn’t plead for his life. He has to keep everybody safe, that means getting rid of anybody who is plotting against you. Or would you rather him let people live and give them more chances to kill him or someone in the group? I don’t think they would last long like that.

You could say him taking over the group (Ricktatorship) is his way of not trusting anyone in his group with his safety (or his families).

They have earned a level of trust as they met him during the event that changed Shane. Prior to this and if the event never happened Shane would have never acted (IMO) the way he did.

As for Merle joining the group, I dont see Rick allowing that. He would rather see Daryl go than have Merle join. Merle was a loose cannon with the group. Seeing that the blame for his missing appendage is going to be placed on T-Dog and Rick it just wouldnt be wise to allow him in the group.

Now if Daryl betrays him for Merele thats another thing. Darryl has Ricks trust. It appears the same is true for Rick. So neither would see a threat coming. They would be upfront with each other and just split.

He is a young boy in the middle of a zombie infested world with almost nobody his age to identify with. His only means of fitting in is to do what the adults do, that’s why he ran off to the infirmary to get supplies. Yes he ran off when Lori scolded him, wouldn’t most 11-13 year olds do the same? Why not acknowledge the fact that he got much needed bandages for Hershel, who saved his life by the way, and also killed 3 walkers in the process.

You are implying that trust is earned over time. I can roll with that. What about Shane? He knew him for years. They had each others back on the police force and yet look what happened. What can still happen with each member of his camp. People can wear two faces well. I would rather have my enemies in my face than at my back.

Here is another example. What will happen when Darryl meets up with his brother again? What guarantee does Rick have that he want be betrayed again? If Merle is persuaded to join the group again, is he really any bigger threat than these two prisoners. No. And there will still be women, a child(ren), and an elderly/sick man in the picture.

After everything they had told them, they do exactly the opposite.

You would think that they would have come across some of the Zs during that 10 months but I guess they were cut off. And 10 months of human waste must have burned off Rick’s nose hairs.

The single Z in the hall was a surprise to me too… and they didn’t encounter any more while hauling Hershel back to their cell block.. that’s a bit strange.

I’m surprised Carl didn’t shoot Hershel after he grabbed Lori… and I’m fine with his current progression. In the comics, by this time he was a very disturbed child, so this is trying to keep him as “normal” as possible.

Why would you want to take the chance and infuse them into your group with women and children? Not to mention a sick elderly man.

Rick has seen good men go bad and now adays you cant take anything at face value. Better to be safe than sorry.

You have to earn TRUST.

As to it being different… meh if you break it down its just a group of dysfunctional people. The only thing you dont have (yet?) is someone sleeping with different people.

Sorry the kid is a ‘baby’ still as he hasnt grown (yet). We keep seeing small parts but until he exerts his personality (that we know from the books) he will still be a baby.

Also dont forget for the last 6+ months he has been holed up (supressed) with his momma and has not been able to go off on his own.

As Chance states below the time frame is off kilter from the books also.

Im not saying he WONT become the Carl we know. Im just saying he has had no reason (like the books) to. In the books he made some hard core decisions that made him who he is. He has yet to have those in the series.

sorry for that last remark it was not meant to be snarky. ;) However it still holds true. Carl may not turn out to be like the books Carl at all. I could see it coming had he been the one to shoot the little girl zombie. (which I was hoping for) However they dropped that ball.

So I dont think Carl will become the Carl we know.

Give the two remaining prisoners a chance to join your group. Trust? Never. But Rick’s group would have a general idea of what they would be getting in these men. Criminals!

I would rather have people and know up front that they can’t be trusted than to be proved wrong later because you had the right look, and we all just happened to meet up running from zombies. Correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t that how all strangers eventually get together in this new world and form a bond?

Rick’s group did go into the prison and proceeded to lay down rules like they were correctional officers. And, might I add, began to thin out the prisoner’s numbers. LOL!
