So I'm rewatching seasons one and two, and I have a couple of questions.
Atlanta got bombed, or possibly napalmed. This was shown in a flashback with Shane and Lori on the road; Carol and her abusive husband were there as well.
So, um, how come we never see any of this damage when our merry band goes to Atlanta? This, again, just makes me thing there is no show bible....
Also, at the CDC, the guy says that he lost contact with the last holdouts, the French, over a month ago. If Dr. Mullet is telling the truth, the he's been talking to people in Washington on a satellite phone, how did those people lose contact with the CDC? Wouldn't that be a priority?
Or, as some have speculated on TWOP, Dr. Mullet deliberately destroyed the truck so they couldn't continue on to DC because he doesn't actually know anything. But wouldn't Abraham have overheard the phone calls? Or did the doctor and his mullet go off somewhere to make them, due to them being classified and all?
And will Rosita ever dress properly for the zombie apocalypse?
I'm inclined to agree with you that Eugene make be faking it. He seemed to intentionally destroy the truck.
One question I've had for a long time is why the characters aren't all using swords or cross-bows, or even pikes. Far better weapons for killing zombies. Amo seems to last for a really long time in the some of the zombie gun shoot-out scenes. . .
And the armoured gear that Glen suited up in - there should have been more of that, and more people should have worn them. Alternatively, it would make common sense to create protective gear out of various fabrics and items. For example, police train dogs with padded bite proof arm gear. Such stuff should have been available at any police station with a canine unit and a top priority for survivors.
^^Agreed. After seeing Milton's "biter jacket" (a jacket he'd covered in duct tape) I would have thought everyone would walk around in something like that. I live in GA so I know the heat is crazy here, but there should be some kind of way they can work that out.
I agree swords, pikes, etc. over guns. Michonne (katana), Daryl (crossbow) and Tyrese (mallet/hammer thing) are the only ones whose weapon of choice is a melee weapon. Everyone needs to learn how to use them especially now that they left their store of ammo back at the prison...bullets should become scarce really soon now that they are all on the road.
So I'd heard rumors that Daryl was going to die tonight, so I had to seek out spoilers so that I could brace myself if that was the case. I won't say yea or nay in case anyone doesn't want to know.
But I will say that if the spoilers are true, this may be the stupidest episode ever of The Walking Dead. Yes, I'm still pissed that Norman Reedus is paired up with the weakest "actress" on the show (she's apparently a Disney kid? That explains a lot); I would've preferred Glenn and Daryl being awesome together trying to find Maggie, but NO, we get him and simpering twit.
Oh, and apparently Norman Reedus was so bothered by something in this episode he made the producers change it. I'm guessing they had the two hook up, but I really have no idea.
MY GOD EMILY KINNEY IS A BAD, BAD ACTRESS.
Hmm...having skinned a rattlesnake, it's not nearly as easy as Daryl made that fake one look. It is tasty, however. Now, she's getting drunk on shine. Right.
Look, I'm as happy as the next woman to watch Norman Reedus for an hour, but that episode went nowhere. And to reveal that Daryl did "nothing" before the apocalypse is not a big deal, no matter how hot Norman looks trying to convince me of this. We all suspected that. It's not a big, shocking reveal.
It would have been more interesting if Beth's mission was to get drunk and screw.

If they kill Daryl, I'm done with this show.
Edited: double post
But as long as I'm here, I'm worried that Beth's "you'll be the last man standing" means Daryl buys it next week.

Lep - so pissed she posted it twice. So, when I watch the episode, I'll be screaming at the tv for zombies to come kill Beth?
Well, if zombies really do like brains, then Beth is not their meal choice....
Sure wasn't much of an episode tonight. Beth comes off as a little brat wanting to get drunk because daddy wouldn't let her before. I'm looking forward to Daryl being reunited with Carol so they can get it on LOL
I disagree. The episode was actually very good. We got to see two very different personalities having to work it out together both still haunted by their "past lives". Beth is almost a symbol of what used to be normal. Someone who still has hope and still has a good heart despite all. Not everyone can or should be a badass. The thing is that she pretty much forced Daryl to deal with some of his demons. And Daryl showed her that she really has to get tougher. Beth is still young and probably frustated just like Carl.
But that didn't need to take an entire episode. You could've shown us some other characters.
I can't believe I'm bitching about a Daryl-centric episode...
What I did like was that intro sequence, with no dialogue for like the first 7-10 minutes. That was really well done. The "let's get drunk and gaze at our navels" part? Not so much. The ONLY interesting thing that was revealed was that Daryl felt guilty for not continuing to look for the governor. The rest we already knew.
I do have to say that next week looks REALLY good, so I'm hopeful for some awesome TV.
I enjoyed the episode but I don't think they needed an entire episode to tell that part of the story...
I do feel like Beth was talking to me when she confronted Daryl outside about the reasons she's still alive. I think I've asked that questions several times: how the hell is Beth still alive? or what does she do other than babysit and sing? The answer is still not much, but I guess that's okay for now. I laughed so hard when Daryl bashed in the walker's head with the golf club and messed up Beth's new outfit ("FORE!!"). Wearing white? While you're walking through the woods? Seriously? Come on Beth...
I did like that Daryl opens up a bit and we find that he blames himself for what happened as well. It makes sense seeing as how he was the take charge guy while Rick was off playing farmer...so I guess he feels as though he should shoulder some of the blame for what happened. I hate it when Daryl cries!! I just wanted to knock Beth out of the way and hug him!! He misses his family...that made me sad.
Not surprising to find that Daryl was mostly a drifter prior to the apocalypse. I'd have been shocked if he said he was an investment banker or something like that...but judging from who he was at the beginning of the show, the fact that he tailed Meryl and did whatever he did seems kinda obvious.
Not a bad episode but it didn't really move anything forward much. Next week's episode is looking like a nail-biter...out of bullets and surrounded by zombies in fog? Yikes! I wonder if someone is going to die? From the extended preview I saw it looked like Bob was in quite a bit of trouble. Is this episode going to focus solely on Maggie, Sasha and Bob? Or are we going to see anyone else?
Guess we'll find out next week.
I liked the opening of this week's episode.
Mainly because it had Daryl and Glenn and was Beth-free.
