    I've seen criticism in other places of Carl acting really stupidly (um, hello, it's Carl, it's not like he's EVER stayed in the house ), but I think everything he did was so age appropriate, and I say that as a teacher of 14 year olds. (I think he's supposed to be slightly younger, but still)

    I jumped off the couch when he opened that door in the house, even though I knew it was coming. Arg.

    Yeah, I thought he acted just like a teenager who thinks they know everything. I read an interview with Robert Kirkland who said that was part of Carl's struggling with his anger that his father wasn't perfect and he was going to show him he was a better man, but realized that he didn't want to be alone and needed Rick. So much that when he thought Rick had died, he was willing to die also. It was an excellent episode. Not all of them have to be gruesome. I did wonder why neither Rick nor Michonne checked to see if there were keys in the motorcycles. Maybe they'll do that in a couple of weeks.

    On "Talking Dead" I believe they said this episode was taken directly from the comic.

    Oh, my. Carol is back. One of the kids is turning into a psychopath, Glenn is superGlen . Maggie is distraught. The baby is alive. For now. Did they not have a plan? You always have a plan. And backup plans.

    When sanctimonious Rick sent Carol packing, didn't he tell Carol "he'd take care of the girls"? When Carol shows up with the 2 girls and Ricks baby, she should punch him in the face.

    Rick has rubbed me the wrong way...... Kick his ass Carol.

    I don't know who the actress is who plays Beth, but she is terrible. And she gets to be alone with Daryl?

    I liked seeing kick-ass Glenn back, and am anxious to see who the new people are, though I do hope we get more Daryl in the future. Sans Beth.

    It's a miracle Beth is still alive. I guess b/c she's been hiding inside of the prison since they got there. *shrugs* But as a character, Beth is a great nanny...and...um...yeah, she sings sometimes too... I honestly have no idea why/how she's still alive. She pulled out her knife like she was going to do something and barely missed being eaten by a walker. She's very lucky she's paired with Daryl...who is AWESOME.

    Poor Tyrese! One whiny baby, a flighty little girl and a budding socio/psychopath. I liked the reveal with Judith; I was genuinely happy to see her...until she started howling. I'm sorry but it is just not smart to have children in the apocalypse and it's even worse to have a fussy infant. But kudos to him for managing all three kids. Lizzie is quite frightening. It's obvious that little girl is all kinds of fcuked up. This chick slices bunnies' throats and smothers babies for fun. Somebody give her a Barbie doll or something! The sooner something gnaws on her the better. What worse is none of the adults know about it!

    I guess we can thank Carol for some of Lizzie's craziness. After all, she was the one who encouraged all of the heartlessness. On some level she needed to, but at the same time you have to be careful of what you expose people to. Some people can't handle it. Whatever Carol did really brought out the darkness in Lizzie and now she has all the makings of a textbook serial killer. That said it was nice to see Carol back...if only to give Tyrese a hand. I'm not 100% sure of the time lapse since she was kicked out, but I'd guess it was only a few days by the conversation she and Tyrese had. I'm still on the fence about Carol. I get where she was coming from in doing what she did but sacrificing your humanity in the name of survival is taking it a little too far. It will be interesting to see what happens with her and Tyrese.

    I wonder what's up with this Terminus place? Maybe that's what they heard on the radio? Everyone tends to forget about that b/c two seconds after hearing it Daryl, Michonne and the rest ran into the mega-herd and had to bolt. I wonder what that's going to be: another prison-like community or another Woodbury?

    Maggie is pretty distraught. Hershel's dead, Beth is gone, Glenn is gone...she's in a bad space and that tends to lead to carelessness, mistakes and (usually) accidents/death. That situation with the walkers bum-rushing the door could have ended very badly. They got lucky.

    Shocked to see that Glenn was still at the prison. For a minute there it looked like he was about to wimp out and shut down but then kick-ass Glenn returned in full force. How awesome was it that he basically walked out the front door? Loved that! Finding Tara was good for him; at least he's not alone. No clue who these new people are that found them on the road but apparently they're big characters in the comic books.

    Good episode! Can't wait for next week!!

    Why, why, why do the writers always fall back on two men trying to decide who has the biggest dick? Yes, Glenn is an idiot for trying to get back to Maggie, but that whole scene was so unnecessary.

    And of course the government idiot messes up the gas tank.

    That part of the storyline tonight was a total waste of air time. Loving that Michonne is opening up. She is good for Carl.

    I was rolling my eyes at the scientist with the super secret inside info about how to save the world. So many holes in that story, that Ford guy is an idiot for believing it. There's no such thing as "classified" information any more. If I were Glenn, I would have told him to spill the info and pointed out that he's been to the CDC and they were clueless about how to stop this. And Ford says he's been in contact with the government up until a few weeks ago? Uh...how? A LOT of fishy stuff going on there.

    Yeah, but you've got to admit "son of a dick" was a great line.

    Eugene and Ford are key players from the comic books, but they've entered the story at a very different point from the comics so they are almost like new characters. No idea how they are going to write the characters with the TV show.

    I like the direction the show is taking. I'm just glad the prison story-line is over.

    I believe someone mentioned this before, but I'm also starting to think Carol was covering for Lizzie by taking the blame for killing the 2 sick prison people.

    Anyone find it ironic that when Rick stayed IN THE HOUSE, he was in trouble?

    Well, bad things happen when Carl leaves the house.

    Nothing really happened in this episode to advance the plot, which I wouldn't have minded as much if it had been at a different point in the series. No Daryl does not make me happy (anyone seen the previews for next week? I want to be stuck in a car trunk with Daryl. ). But I do think at some point, it would be interesting to see how they live without being in constant fear from bad guys (although I know this is the plot in the graphic novels; I really hope Negus (sp?) never shows up, but I suspect he will).

    But anyway. I suspect the writers don't have a show "bible" where they keep track of stuff for continuity purposes. Because Glenn having been at the CDC already should've been enough for him to punch mullet-man in the face. Or at least accuse him of lying.

    I will forgive him slightly in that he is recovering from an illness and focusing on Maggie, but that no one called that idiot out on "classified" just kills me. What if he dies? It would be good for someone else to have that info, yes?

    Did anyone watch Talking Dead last night? Mindy Kaeling (sp?) was on and was very addicted to her mug of something. Like Marco Rubio water bottle addicted. She'd be talking, grabbing, drinking and staring at it, at the same time.

    I wonder if Glenn is holding back the CDC stuff on purpose?

    Norman Reedus doesn't think Daryl should be in a relationship. My favorite quote from is, "Well, (Daryl) will f*ck you, but he won't cuddle you."

    I'm okay with that.

    You are killing me!

    I really liked the episode, specifically what happened with Rick in the house (that was INTENSE) and with Michonne and Carl bonding (crazy cheese!!). Looks like Rick, Michonne and Carl should be running into Tyrese, Carol and the kids soon. I'm looking forward to the reunion of Rick and Carl with baby Judith.

    As for the whole "classified" info thing, I don't know what to think. I agree there's no reason anything should be classified anymore. You could be dead in two minutes; best to share your information with anyone who will listen b/c 9 times out of 10 you probably won't make it to where you're trying to go.

    Glad Daryl is back next week. Anybody else sick of Beth? IDK, maybe it's just me. Hopefully she'll give me a reason not to hope the walkers eat her soon. Can't wait until next week!

    I like Beth....even though she sucks at killing walkers. She's the only one keeping a journal.
