  1. John Dough says:

    Dale was worried about the rule of law. Sorry if the dead come back to “life” and start eating people never mind the rule of law. The law of reality and certainity just shifted. And it’s not in the living’s favor.

    New world, new “rules”. Dale’s wanting to hold on to something that quite frankly didn’t exist anymore is what got him killed.

    Adapt or die, Shane has it figured out. I’d like to rewatch the series and see how many more people would be alive if they followed Shane from the beginning.

    1. =Mark says:

      I think what got Dale killed was wandering ALONE in the dark. He is supposed to be one of the folks watching out for the others. What is he doing by himself and how does he get ambushed in an open field on a moonlit night?

  2. Bishop says:

    Holy Crap! I had a thought. Carl took the pistol from Daryl’s bike. What if we come upon a moment where Daryl EXPECTS that gun to be there, NEEDS that gun to be there and he goes into his saddlebags and *poof* its gone! Now he’s in trouble…

    1. Sebastian says:

      I think Daryl will be able to hold his own, regardless of whether or not he has a gun at his immediate disposal. No worries!

    2. Chad says:

      Just wait until Daryl’s brother comes back as the leader of Randal’s group….

      1. Jason Kinnison says:

        I don’t think enough enough time has passed in the show for Merle to have taken leadership of a group, especially in his weakened condition. But I guess if Carl can be up and taunting zombies so soon after taking one in the chest, anything is possible. I think everyone on this show is related to Wolverine.

      2. Ashley says:

        I think he will be a member of the group not the leader. Merl seems like he would fit right in with them… Could Daryl take on his own brother for the protection of Ricks group? Would love to see how that scenario would play out.

    3. BeVibe says:

      Bishop – this is just like the old theater rule: If you show a gun in the first act, it *must* be used in the second act.

      I totally expect Carl’s removal of the gun to adversely affect Daryl in the near future. (it’s not like AMC didn’t give it away with their promos)

  3. Sean Carter says:

    Hi guys, really enjoy the show. I’m in the middle of listening to it right now and paused to come comment after you said you were making an effort to shorten the recaps. Just thought I’d say I actually really like the long play by play recap, if only because I have an awful memory 😉

    1. Jason Kinnison says:

      Agreed.

    2. Ashley says:

      I agree as well…. The podcast could be two hours and I would still listen. Great podcast!!!

    3. Chris says:

      Hey thanks guys! I’ll try not to worry about it so much. I always figured people would get bored if we rambled on too long.

      Chris

    Guys…guys… If you watch closely enough, the hammer of the gun falls and then all goes black and then we hear the gun shot….They say that if you’re shot and immediately killed, you won’t hear the gunshot. The bullet travels faster than sound. So going black and hearing the shot after, was kinda cool.

  5. Jim says:

    I had a “holy crap did you see that?” moment in this last episode that I wanted to share. The Zombie guards had no bites, they were scratched (supposedly). Shane kills a zombie with a knife, then uses that same knife to cut his hand (in the bus) which he lost in the zombie’s head. So is that Shane’s foreshadowed demise, he turns into a walker? Love the show guys!

  6. malone79 says:

    I think the “Hero zombie” (one that killed Dale), is ..Kevin Galbraith he was an extra I got when i searched an few days ago.

  7. malone79 says:

    they had a mini-series a long time ago about that book recommended ‘The Stand’, i haven’t read the book either. But the mini-series was good!

  8. Jason Kinnison says:

    I for one would have no problem with the podcast being 3 hours long.

    1. Agreed. Look forward to listening to the podcast each week.

  9. Ashley says:

    I think that the Genner (not sure if spelled correctly) secret is that everyone is infected and Rick is trying to keep it a secret from the group. When Shane seen the two guard zombies that didn’t have bites and pointed it out to Rick, he seemed like he was hiding something. He didn’t find it curious at all. He suggested scratches and wanted to move on from the subject. Any one else would of probably gave it more thought…. Then again that was my interpretation of the scene. You die and your a zombie!!!

  10. Cal says:

    I think you guys have completely missed the mark when it comes to Carl and the “hero” zombie not being directly related. When he finds the zombie stuck in the mud, it doesn’t appear to be just standing there and not making any progress in freeing itself. Only after Carl decided to taunt the zombie, did it twist and pull itself loose. Presumably, Carl made a beeline for the farm after he escaped the grip of the zombie, which the zombie could have easily followed. My take is that particular zombie wouldn’t have found the farm, cow, or Dale, had Carl not taunted and freed the zombie in the first place. If it were some other random roaming walker that killed Dale, I’d be more inclined to agree with you, but in this case, it seems pretty clear that Carl’s actions resulted in the zombie making it to the farm.

  11. Cal says:

    Oops, I meant to write, the hero zombie DOES appear to be just standing there, not doesn’t.

  12. Ashley Givens says:

    Not sure if it has been brought up, but in this episode we get a little insight on the gun Shane brought back after killing Ottis. When Dale and Daryl are talking Daryl tells him that he knows Shane killed Ottis because he brought back a dead mans gun. He even says it was obviose to Rick as well but Rick isnt bothered by it enough to bring it up.

    Just figured Id mention it since the gun is brought up a few times in the podcast.
