Yeah I figured Lee and Clementine would be the main story plot and sub characters would come and go.

Basically, Carl and Rick are on their own and Rick ends up getting really sick.  Carl has to look out for him while he's passed out and that's where the scene was portrayed. 

I'm really curious what they're going to do with Tyreese now.  He was supposed to be beheaded in the prison, but was brought into the series too late.  Herschel never made it out of the prison, so its kinda a win-win as far as comic continuity goes.  I think they run into Morgan again soon, but I had to refresh my memory.

Baby walker? :)

 

Fun episode. I will miss Herschel, one of the few completely likable characters on the show.

 

Ever see Dead Alive?  Baby zombie in that...

Isn't this season now just a repeat of last season?

How so?  I think they're just tying up loose ends...if it goes the way of the comic book, they'll be back on the farm

One group in prison. One group with Governor. There's even a funny Buzzfeed I saw about it today. Governor gets an army, wants a war, tricks some people, kidnaps some prison groupies, threatens the prison, they fight, everyone loses. Governor really loses. Prison gang in dire straits. 

 

I guess the best I can say is - at least the Governor story line is now over. How grating that was. We get it, he's a psychopath and the two groups don't get along. 

 

I have no knowledge of the comics. I guess I would have just preferred to stay with the ideas of "struggles recreating society" - in the prison - than the continual run, find a group, fight, run, fight, run. Let's actually develop something here. 

 

I suppose I am also hopeful that the Carol storyline will re-emerge and can help us return to the discussion of "what's justice" in a world post-apocalypse. But damn, was this last 3 episodes just a pain. (Yes, the fight was "exciting" to watch this week... but not worth much)

I think they ended the Governor like they should have last season.  Probably why the other guy was let go and the new director was hired.

Like I said pacing seemed off this season.  The final episode was great.....I loved Rick's speech.

Alright I finished episode 5 of the game. Overall it was a great game...my only gripe was the ending is the ending. All the choices in the end came to the same conclusion.

Yeah the storyline was great.  I really felt for Lee/Clem.

I read the comics. Things are so different that I dont think they help me guess whats going to happen too often.
 
The two of them were quarentined and did not pose much of a rick to the others. I like Carol, and understand her motivation, but I think what she did was wrong.

I agree but I did call a certain set of characters showing up soon. Yes I'm liking this season so far.

Carl bores me soooo much. Was he such a little $hit on the comics?

Yes.  I've dug him in this episode though...this chain of events is where he turns around.

I binged watched the show about a week ago, and watched the new episode last night. I flipflop between wanting Carl dead and wanting Rick dead.

I'm sure both characters are safe for awhile.  That's part of the reason I didn't like the episode.  No real suspense IMO.  You knew Carl wasn't going to get eaten, and you knew Rick was going to recover.

Carl is annoying in the comics as well. So is Rick. In fact, they are both far more annoying in the comics than the series so I think thats why they dont bother me in the series so much.

 

Last nights was decent, I may have liked it more if I had not watched it right after True Detective which was great last night.

I honestly have no idea where they will go, as the Governor last season was a paper thin version of what he was in the comic.  Michonne basically stuck a spoon in his ass, then scooped out his eyeball with it, after removing it.  Also nailed his dick to a board.  All because he continually raped/beat her while he held her prisoner.  The way they ended the Governor story, was more in line with the comic.

 

With that said, Negan is the next big bad and he makes the Governor look like Jesus.

Do you think censors play a part in that?  The only sorta rape scene was the Gubna and Maggie.  Plenty of sex scenes with Glenn/Maggie, Shane/Lori, or Gubna/Andrea/the other girl.  No rape though which you think in a post Apocalypse world would be pretty widespread.
