How about this oxymoron: mid-season finale, or winter finale.

Yeah. That bites (sorry). Hard to stomach that we have to wait 6-7 months for the next season. That makes zombies cry.

Now, what a riveting episode. Here are my thoughts:

1. Wow. Those walkers travelled a long way to the farm. I think it was the same horde that met up with Rick in the city, as it looked like several were still munching on horse. How the walkers are attracted to sound, and that they travel in packs was a good reminder of how mindless of an eating machine they've become.

2. Pacing of the episode was awesome and reminiscent of season one. Walkers pouring out of the forest and making their way to the farm in the dark added to the tension. Nail-biter for sure in several instances. You definitely felt the panic, hysteria and genuine sense of helplessness as the survivors tried to make their way off the farm. The scene where Herschel looks back on his farm was touching.

3. Admit it: we all waiting for a human to get eaten alive. It's gruesome, horrific, but somehow makes for great entertainment (). Yet, this episode made the deaths of two tertiary characters somewhat difficult to watch (and listen to). You could clearly hear their screams well into being gorged upon by walkers. Nasty.

4. The "reveal". Again, well played and perfectly timed IMAO. So what if Rick didn't let his faith(less) followers know earlier on - his reasons were explained in his speech at the end of the episode.

There's more, but I am going to watch the show again. Tremendous!

Questions:

- where was the helicopter going? Who was in the copter?
- why is Lori such a (&#$? Her character waffles from one extreme to another I find. First she is the proverbial Jezebel who convinces Rick that Shane is a danger. His speech in this episode was littered with aspects of Lori's that shows that Rick agreed with her conclusions of Shane. She wants to protect her son. I get it, but how can she continue to think she can maintain the bubble of boy-scoutish protection she has erected around Carl when all hell is clearly breaking loose? I think she may the next to die.
- I assume that's Michonne who rescues Andrea? Were there amputated walkers chained to Michonne? Interesting how they were acting around her. Interesting.
- now that they know they are all infected, will it make it a difference?

...now I get why they call this show "The Walking Dead" and why the title credits are ordered in that fashion: "The Dead Walking".

Lori: Please, somebody, feed her to the walkers. What a useless character. First the Lady MacBeth speech to Rick in the tent all but saying "you must kill Shane" and now this rejection of him for doing precisely that... and in a case of justified killing. Her ability to care for her son - and by care for, I mean simply keep an eye on - is severely lacking.

The fact that they're all infected changes nothing. All they need to do is ensure that when someone dies, they get a pick through the brain to stay dead.

However.... the ramifications on Lori's unborn child are enormous. That's probably the only decent reason to keep her character around...

Hmmmm....never thought of the unborn baby thing. Perhaps it will be immune to the virus that will eventually destroy humanity. That baby will grow up to become the progenitor of a future race of humans who, after finding her corpse 150, 000 years in the future, will look back and call the baby "Mitochondrial Eve" or something like that which...

...wait.

That's been done before...

I predict zombies witha conscience will come next, followed shortly by a zombie's Bill of Rights under the law. Also, there could be zombies put to work for the civil service like they do in Shaun of the Dead.

...a show that will end well beyond where it SHOULD have ended with us all scratching our heads saying WTF!?

OR....

...a show that ends well, with a shorter than average season (4-5 years. No more!) and leaving us talking about it for years (like Space: Above and Beyond. Love that show).

I don't know who the crazy ninja was, but it was freaking awesome, I know that!!!

As for the unborn baby.. I'm think it won't be immune.. It's in loris blood, so it's in the babies (anatomy people).. As for the outcome.. I don't know.. Born a walker maybe??

i also hate Lori. If i was Rick and she was my wife i would've stayed in a coma

but i do think it was incredibly irresponsible of Rick to not tell them they were all infected. what if he was to die? then none of them would know. and of course that could lead to serious problems in the future.

Agreed. It wasn't as if though telling people about it would have done a lick of harm, and the benefits of sleeping alone would have been well understood.

Perhaps she was angry because she believed that Rick had followed her instructions and she was responsible.
