B-virus = Bite-virus? Funny.

Been a huge Fan but man I don't know if I can handle much more of the people eating crap while their alive - Zombies aren't enough so we need to BBQ and savor? Gordon Ramsay gonna show and partake.

Sorry, but I draw the line at Living BBQ as being entertaining in any respect but of course Saw fans will probably love this but it's too soon for cannibalism especially since you'll eventually run out of people.

They must establish a sanctuary, like an Island with a tropical climate good soil - clean the island of walkers - walkers can't swim or operate watercraft and they have no frontal lobe to reason.

Fish, Shrimp, Stone Crab in unltd quantities now. Take a Ferry or other watercraft for temporary safe mobile transport.

What's with sticking with inland Georgia? SW FL has year round growing seasons no basements and hundreds of islands, and tens of thousands of water craft and several military bases. It's about time they got the hell out of Georgia and away from People Pulled Pork for all. Come on writers how gross must we get?

Stop talking sense! Clearly the best plan is to follow a highly-suspect scientist with no proof across various states to visit a mysterious facility that could have been totally nuked in a Wildfire-type scenario anyway.

Zombies can walk through oceans and water on the bottom. You would have to create some sort of trap that didn't stop fish from getting in assuming that there are still fish.

Yeah, but they can't deal with currents. We've seen it before, when they try to cross creeks/rivers. They are too weak and uncoordinated to maintain their path and get swept away. The ocean sweeps away and knocks down strong, agile humans, so it would definitely wash away walkers.

Plus they would have no reason to walk toward an island out of site and sound of the mainland. However, just like everywhere they end up now, they would still have to protect themselves from other people who might want to take the island from them.

And that is what this show is ultimately about. The Zs are a persistent danger but not the sole focus of the story. The struggle will go on.

Ocean and lake beds are not necessarily flat or firm either. If zombies don't get trapped in the soft, shifting sea floor they could fall into a crevasse or chasm. The deeper it is, the worse the conditions and that's assuming the undead have the ability to navigate underwater to an island anyway. Not to mention being eaten by fish!

Besides humans the only danger to an island base would be the zombies that are occasionally washed ashore, but regular patrols could deal with those easily once the island is under control.

There is almost no downside to an island. Far better than any of the other choices the group have made so far.

The amusing part to your post is, how do they know what direction they are going in once they are under water? Being a diver it is easy loose direction with in 100 yards. Plus even though I love the show I am still amused how in the hot Georgia sun they have not dried up into a jerky like substance yet....

I am still confused why Bob broke down outside before he was abducted. People say it was the alcohol being passed around inside, but there were no scenes of him lusting after it. Or that he was bitten during the food run. Possible, but very obscure.

Also, what was that mark in the tree after he was knocked out. Did he scratch the tree as he was falling? Was that there before? What does it mean?

People can only speculate why he broke down. I'm not so sure he got bit/scratched anymore. I even re-watched the part in the food pantry - he showed no indication that he was wounded by the underwater walker. I'm leaning towards something mental vs physical (wanting to drink with the others or if he did, regretting it, something else from his past, etc).

The mark in the tree isn't known yet either. Morgan saw one as well (a circle with an "x" inside).

I think they would have brought up the alcohol if that is what he was crying about...that episode was over a season/year ago and I dont think they would expect the audience to remember that....I am sure he got bit going underwater and just hid it. Jim had hidden getting bit until someone else noticed blood. Maybe he went outside the doors just incase he turned he didnt want to attack sasha or anyone else in the middle of the night

The writers know there are a small number of viewers that (over) analyze the show but I hope they don't write the show with "us" in mind. We're trying to guess and odds are Bob will say something to Gareth that explains it.

You also say you don't expect the audience to remember something, well, I wouldn't expect Rick and the others to remember that Bob had an issue with alcohol.

Bob could have been overcome with relief that he's still alive and happiness in finding the chick and living through two close calls at terminus and in the basement.

That was one of my first thoughts too, some happiness in one screwed up world. Emotional overload.

Or maybe Bob was just happy that he gets to be in an interesting part of the show instead of just falling asleep and knocking over shelves.

I re-watched that episode and didn't see that mark. He actually wrote "CLEAR" on his map.

Walking Dead may not record tonight at 9:00pm ET on Directv.
Directv customers need to check their todo list, I was just looking to see what was scheduled to record tonight and I noticed that Walking Dead wasn't going to record until 12:30am , sure enough I looked in the guide and it isn't listed as HD and therefore it wasn't going to record, so just a heads up, better check your todo list.

Why does this only seem to happen to assorted Directv customers, I don't hear of this happening on any of the other providers, seems like everyone always wants to point to the schedule provider, but it seems to only happen to Directv.

I always see this issue on my DVRs (TWC and OTA antenn(s/e)) and HTPC (OTA). It could be user, guide, etc. Always review them!

It's just another example of DIRECTV's crappy implementation of guide data. My Comcast connected TiVo shows that the episode is in HD so there is no reason at all that DIRECTV does not have that data as well, they both get their data from the same provider, Tribune Media Service/Gracenote.

It's 2014 and DIRECTV still can't figure out how to put season and episode numbers in their guide data, something that every other provider I've used or come across has had for a long time.

I always watch previous episodes that air before the new episode and usually find several items I missed. All 3 tonight, stoked!

Mine doesn't shows seasons and episodes on TWC's DVR (Navigator) unless I missed them?
