Those were my very first thoughts when I heard the word "audition." To me, the most likely to fail the audition is Rick. His completely unnecessary violence towards his new host may be his undoing. No way they just let someone loose outside the gate if he/she fails the audition. That is just asking for a revenge assault on the compound or anybody leaving on a mission.

That's why I say everyone should lock themselves in a room at night... live in homes with locked doors to the outside AND to each individual room.

You don't want to strap yourself down or handcuff yourself... that would slow you down in an emergency. Imagine being startled awake in the night and you can't find the key in the dark or loosen the strap... meanwhile you could have gotten up and out of your room to help someone else before it was too late... You want to be freely mobile within your secured room, but secure within the room from surprises from outside AND yourself secured inside the room if you die at night so you don't get out and harm others.

Carl saw a girl out side the gates who quickly disappeared like a ninja, was that the girl who stepped out who, and totally awkward!

To me I think there are a few security issues, I don't see any look out especially on the front gate! Also I would think Rick would come in and consult the senate about any flaws of the place!

Good episode

Are we missing some of your 1st question? He didn't just see her outside, he saw her go outside and followed her. She's the one that is most like the group and has seen and lived in the real world.

There is a lookout, they mentioned it once or twice. As far as consulting I think his best advice was to not let anyone from the outside in. The biggest security threat they'll have is from outsiders.

I really liked the episode, don't trust Deanna as she's a Politician AND wanted to be a poker player which means she should be good at lying as well not showing her hand. Her induction method is a perfect way to disarm most people and find out what makes them tick or the best way to "disarm" them. The only one not fully buying in is Daryl which is something I would expect. I saw shades of the governor in Ricks last statement.

Yeah kind of slow, but this time it had a point in building the mystery and ambiguity. So I thought it was interesting in exploring this new place through the eyes of paranoia. Plus, new locations and people! And Rick unbearded. Very weird.

WTF moments were still in evidence though.

They drive the vehicles to the gates and leave them outside? Eh? Do they have valet service too?

Reinforced walls with the support beams on the outside? Unless they are expecting to recruit The Hulk at some point thats not a good defense suggestion from an engineer. Not cold steel either. Looked like corrugated roofing. I guess we can put that down to Aaron not knowing anything about construction.

Under attack by zombies Rick pulls out a tiny knife. Even though he has a massive bowie knife strapped to his hip. Sure it's a good looking knife Rick, but unless the blade falls off I would use that as my first option to prevent an eating death. You can't use it for special occasions when you're dead.

You did notice that Carol lied about everything? Even disarming she seemed to feign weakness.

So that means she is trying to start fresh and pretend everything so far never happened, or she's hiding her capabilities and personality in order to avoid showing her hand to people she is not sure of yet.

In that respect she is being far more cautious than Daryl. They know he's a potential threat already by not trying to assimilate.

When she said she always had dinner ready for Ed when he got home from work and missed him so much, I realized she was putting on an act.

.. The girl who went outside was the "you don't like me, do you" quiet girl on the bed ..
Perhaps she is meeting with her "family" outside, or even those that were mentioned "banished" were her people , & she was allowed to stay / left there by them ...

It's odd that the question hasn't been asked to these Alexandria people, if they have/ how they would ward off or defend against "bad guys" in a speeding school bus or dump truck, or attracting large giant "herds" of "roamers", which seems to have always become a big problem when they stay in 1 place too long ....

Pardon, those question should have remain in my head, what I wrote was more of observations more than anything else. I rewatched the epi again and I saw it was clear as day it was the same girl, and I suppose she took Ricks gun as well.

Good epi.

Of course I did I also noticed how she was playing a role as soon as she met people (struggling with her gun). I was referring to outward facing emotions only. Daryl is the only one "outwardly" fighting the new place. They had a good discussion about it on "Talking Dead".

No need to pardon, sometimes we all miss stuff the 1st part of your question seemed "disjointed" which is why I asked .

I wouldn't put it past her to take it as we know that the Alexandria group has been watching them for awhile without being noticed.

Best episode in a long time IMO.

Carol is doing it right. Surprised she didn't council the others to do the same.

Michonne is way too happy. I predict she is next to die.

I wonder if the little girl who sneaks out of the compound is visiting parents or relatives who didn't "pass" the audition. I need to watch it again and see if her backpack is less full than when she left. I'm almost positive she has Rick's gun.

Darrell's "dinner" line was classic.

As far as "cold rolled steel", maybe they're bringing in Chevy Trucks as a sponsor.

Both Carl and the gloomy teen girl slipped over the fence yet no one asked why they were outside when everyone came wondering back in. Rick didn't say a thing to Carl when he showed up around the corner as Rick was doing his rounds.

They mentioned on Talking Dead that several scenes had to be cut due to time. However, I suspect it's more likely lazy writing. As usual.

Yeah like "Carl how the heck did you get out?" and response would be "I followed that girl I just met, she climbed the wall easily, she's up to something", maybe next episode?

Was it some chemistry between Rick and Samantha? I thought she was single mother but the husband was creeping outside at night, but I think they'll will fight each other over jealousy

Did I imagine that Carl saw someone in the "abandoned" house just outside the gates right before they all went inside? Was she the same as the gloomy girl that he met inside? Perhaps she's sneaking food out to her parents that failed the auditions?


And there's bound to be something going on between Rick and his stylist. I hate to see a soap opera love triangle story line happen. It was bad enough with Shane and Lori.

Well it was done to Rick( which is debatable him being thought for dead), so he's probably thinking it's better to be the cheater and the cheatie

I noticed that too. Hopefully, they left him on the side of the road when he had to go take a leak.


Or he will be banished after his audition for being worthless.

Yeah something is up with the priest. He's too weak to survive on his own and I can't see the group leaving him as a scout. Not sure what happened or where he is. if he was dead they would have shown his death. You really can't expect the priest to save them like Carol did at Terminus.
