If my daughter went missing I wouldn't be rational in the least. I would probably be blaming everyone and everything.

PLUS...I mean...not to be gross, but how long has the zombie thing going on. I mean...periods can NOT be fun for them.

The men are just as bad I think...just in a different way. We are starting to see them break down more and more, it's just not manifesting the way it is with the women.

I may have to start waiting until the next day to watch it too.

I seriously laid in bed last night thinking of reasons why a zombie attack would never happen. I mean, honestly, the army wouldn't be able to take them out? They're slow. The government could build a blockade of some sort and put sharp shooters along the front wall, they could pick them off one by one...It wouldn't be that hard.

That's just one of many, many scenarios I played out in my head....

I love scary movies (the kind that make you jump or look over your shoulder) but have to admit that this show unnerves me. I think it's because the people and the situations are so realistic (outside of the fact that zombies are everywhere - lol). And they are using real settings (Atlanta for much of last season).

And the zombies are pretty fast-walkers! I'm more comfortable with the more sluggish undead.

I also think that part of the fear factor is the fact that they really are everywhere and you can never be "safe," not even for a moment. They can corner you and you can be trapped and they can certainly outlast you. I think I'd feel safer if I had a tank to travel around in.

Not having one would be worse. Lori hasn't given that a thought, has she? Can't imagine anything worse than being in labor and spotting a herd in a distance. "Get under the car Lori. Be quiet".

I love the actor that plays him...Norman Reedus. He was in Boondock Saints as well!

Before Rick is drained dry, isn't there a person in that house that can ask "Does anyone here have O- type?"

Andrea could benefit from Daryl's stash.

With all the abandoned cars, why is everyone still driving old, potentially unreliable cars? Even the new people at the farm are driving that old pick up.

One more thing. The car seat image was disturbing. Isn't it interesting how just one image doesn't require anything more to create a scene in your own mind of what happened?

There are two threads about this show going on right now. Oh, well.

Last night at the high school when Shane and Redneck Guy were trying to get the medical stuff: Those walkers really WERE moving pretty fast! I also prefer my zombies to be staggering, stomping slowpokes, not all nimble like these new fangled zombies. Also, the old-style zombies had a heightened sense of smell, but these walkers (Or runners. Sometimes.) do not seem to have it. Remember when TDog cut his arm and it was spurting blood like a garden hose? Those zombies in the herd barely took notice.

That last scene last night with all those zombies pushing on that gate and the pin shaking precariously..... terrifying. Oh, one more thing. I'm so glad they found the farmhouse and those nice people. Now they can take showers. I swear I can smell them through the tv, especially Rick.

The scene with T-Dog is what left me confused about what attracts the zombies. In the first season the reason for Rick and Glenn covering themselves with zombie guts was to remain undetected by the zombies because of the human smell attracted them. Then, in that same scene, when the rain came and the zombie guts washed off them, the zombies went all feeding frenzy.

That is why when T-Dog got the blood waterfall coming from that gash on his arm, I was sure the zombies would have stopped and ran for him. Even though a dead zombie was thrown on him and he lay still on the ground, I would think the zombies could have noticed the smell of the blood.

I would also like to comment on the herd in that episode. They were walking all unstable, almost dragging their feet, yet later on, there are zombies running through the woods like crazed men. The episode last night had zombies running around the outside of the hospital. Are there degrees of disability that comes with how long one has been a zombie?

Also, they seemed sensitive to sound, even the smallest noise, such as when Andrea was in the camper bathroom last episode and tinkered with the gun parts. Yet, last night in the scene at the hospital, Shane and that guy who shot Carl (can't remember his name) were hiding behind that car and then opened the creeking door, made a loud noise as the trunk opened, and no zombies noticed. Either I am not understanding what attracts the zombies, or there is a rash of inconsistencies.

Simply put, yes. I've always followed the lore that if someone who is highly athletic becomes a zombie, then they will retain a certain element of that as they begin to decay. Thus, they could possibly run you down soon after being turned.

We really haven't been given much background to how the zombies in the WD work. It's possible since the virus affects the brain, that there may not be a disconnect to the muscular structure, thus, again, a former track athlete may still be pretty fast on their zombie feet.

Am I the only one who thinks the people in tonights episode were just a little too relaxed hanging outside the farm house in the dark? Is there some invisible force field that keeps zombies off the farm? Glenn and the new woman talking about religion, Rick and Lori talking about purpose for living, Shane leaning inured against the vehicle. Nobody was outside on watch. I would be inside with the front door definitely closed and locked.

You aren't the only one. The whole world is crawling with walkers and it's just a little too quiet on that farm.

It's quiet and they're distracted and that's probably why they seem relaxed. The zombies aren't consistent but seem to be somewhat noisy most of the time.

Wow, what an ending tonight. Yeesh!
