Yes! The pace of the first half of this season was too rushed. You need to balance that action with story and character development.

Normally I would say "show, don't tell," but wow, Morgan's account of what happened was stunning.

I am very disappointed with how cold Rick is becoming, ie just ignoring the backpack guy without even flinching. I didn't get what was with them snagging his backpack at the end. They aren't that desperate for supplies. Was it a symbol of some partially renewed humanity, after is conversation with Morgan, that compelled him to pick it up as a way of connecting with the backpacker? The show is going to go downhill for me if the group becomes no or little better than the governor.

Was that cat sculpture made out of candy? ( Michonne's comment "that it looks delicious" ).

In the past I think I would have been sad that Morgan didn't hook up with them, but given how cold the group is becoming, Morgan's own bat-shit craziness and the fact they were only offering him a chance to be a soilder I was okay with him staying.

I felt very sorry for the rats.

I wouldn't want them near my home, but in the context of the story they were just trapped, small furry animals meeting a brutal death.

I think the backpack thing was more like hey even though you might think we just had this really emotionally connected scene between Rick and Morgan and Michonne and Carl we're not completely soft and we're still cut throat.

I thought the sign and then meeting the zombie who painted the sign as a human was a nice, creepy touch.

So was Morgan in the same house that he was in when Rick last saw him?

my bet is they won't bc i think they're both a little to craycray to pull it together for that.

but i did really like michone's character development in the episode. she proved to both rick and carl that she's a little more than some shared common interests. i liked the moment at the end where she (finally!!) shared something about her own past and rick relinquished the car keys w/ his realistic admission.

and re: backpacker vs. Morgan: i think it's a statement about fear of the unknown and desire for the familiar. what was familiar to Rick nearly killed him and the backpacker... who knows? but he seemed innocent enough, didn't he?

No. He moved into a building in small town's downtown. The scenery didn't look anything like where they met in the pilot.

He did and they could have frisked him before letting him into the car. If they didn't trust him, they could have let him off somewhere further down the road. Then again, it could have been a trap, he could have had friends hiding in the woods waiting to ambush,rob,etc them. I don't think it is unreasonable to think like that in anarchy when people are preying on each other. It can still go too far though. I don't think Rick's group has fully adjusted yet to the reality of people preying on other people. Even the governor's group takes in people.

i was bothered by the disconnect between an entire episode of rick fighting to repay a stranger who saved his life and his having no problem leaving a desperate guy to fend for himself in the woods. i get that hard times make for hard people, and he had his kid with him, and that guy could have tried to knife them all and steal their car, and all of that. but at some point, with so much awareness of how you owe everything to the selflessness and trust of someone who didn't know you, it seems like he might consider paying that forward. and it's just bad business sense. they were on a gun run because they're gearing up for a showdown with an entire town of bloodthirsty jerks led by a maniac. they need any able-bodied people they can get on their side.

my point is: i think we were supposed to be bothered by those parallels. i think their decisions weren't supposed to make sense and i think we were supposed to be frustrated by Rick's decision to want to befriend Morgan while completely ignoring the backpacking survivor. it seems like Rick's inclination to side with the familiar, ie Morgan-gone-crazy-shooter-man, instead of hey-wait-please-stop-backpacker-man, isn't logical. maybe because Rick isn't logical anymore, i mean, he does see things. i think it's foreshadowing of where that groups' decisions are leading them.

Yes. And Carl's going to be like 'I hate you Michonne, you're not Judith's mom.'
Re: backpacker... they just can't take any other strangers in. I guess they could have rolled down the window and directed him to Woodbury.

Did they take any of Morgan's guns?


I'm a compassionate person but when I saw all that loot I was all...leave him, take everything.

They took a bag of guns or maybe two. Rick handed Michonne a bag. Yeah dude, I was thinking aghhh they need three wheelbarrows and a van.

I think the house that Morgan and his son were in was Rick's former neighborhood. The map on the wall showed that it was all burned down. Carl said something like that it's gone, meaning their house. Maybe Morgan burned it because that's where his wife and son died.

And is is better to be like Rick's group and just let the guy with the pack die and take it later as an afterthought (oh well, he doesn't need it anymore), or be like the Governor and kill the guy to take his stuff. At least with the latter the guy wouldn't get ripped apart first.

I think the map said something like "Rick's house overrun" with overrun crossed out and "burned out" written. Presumably Morgan cleared it of walkers by burning the whole structure.

Rick and Michonne should hook up. They could have more family outings with the kids. All work and no play makes Rick a little delusional. You have to take a break from the daily grind now and then. Go for a drive in the country, visit crazy Uncle Morgan, see the world's largest collection of booby traps, do some shopping, play a little Whack-A-Mole.

I've got some continuity questions about the last episode. Does anyone else think it's strange that the prison is within a day-trip of Rick's hometown? I thought they had traveled a lot further than that.

Not really. I figured they were still in Georgia because if they had crossed state lines they would have mentioned it. And if they're in state probably nearly everywhere in georgia is day trip length away

I thought the same thing. I guess they haven't traveled in a direct line or anything, but since they've been on the move so long it just seems wrong.
