At this point post zombie apocalypse I wouldn't expect that keeps them secluded. Presumably the various groups of survivors have all learned the same lessons and are probably more likely to run into each other as they're all likely to stay away from major roads etc.

My bet is on the quiet girl who scaled the wall, she probably saw him hide it when on one of her trips into the woods.

If so, that could prove interesting since she seems a bit, er, unstable ...

Also it appears there were more people they were just unseen last week. So the "racist"/separatist angle wouldn't quite work thought the varying levels of what clearly looks like ptsd creeping in was a good touch. Also the "A" stamp/Brand to contrast with the "w" brand we have been seeing. Only three episodes left thankfully GoT is on soon after

At least Rick recognized the strategic dumbery of having struts on the outside.

However it strains credulity and provides further examples of poor writing reinforcing character stupidity. Having a small group of people making bad strategic decisions is one thing, but when you have a group of possibly a hundred seemingly intelligent people and nobody can see the idiocy on display then it's just too stupid to accept.

The "architect" not only built a flawed defensive wall but didn't build it to encompass the primary strategic lookout point. Then with people having almost nothing to do they still do not have a lookout. Even if you disregard the threat of cannibal gangs the ability to see weather, zombie herds, distant fires, flares or even random potential recruits is not something that should be overlooked.

You could see the Rick/hot neighbor affair on the horizon last week and I could do without that Desperate Housewife. Aaron and Daryl were far more interesting together and I think the actor playing Aaron helps there.

Not missing Eugene. Even if he somehow does something useful the show should have just killed that character as soon as his ruse was up.

Best parts of this episode where Carol and talking to that little boy and Daryl's struggle to wanting to be acknowledged/accepted but also not wanting. Good episode. Little slow at times.


I guess in this zombie apocalypse it really sucks to be a horse.

The W walker seemed pretty close to Alexandria. Wonder if the W gang is closing in for the season finale.

What's the deal with Rick looking at his hand with the red A mark , when greeting Jessie husband, and their kid..
Did the husband have another letter other than A?

When meeting the husband at the party for the first time he looked, and sound a whole lot geekier, than on the porch..I guess he was drunk on the porch, and bit belligerent ?

So is the whole Alexandria thing a test? They invite in strangers, appear to give them power / responsibility and then see how they use it? Is that the real audition, not some videotaped Q&A sit down with the governess?

Although there might be some other purpose, it seem to me like he was having fun stamping people's hands like they do when entering some clubs -- so you can leave and re-enter without paying a cover charge. In other words, a kid having fun pretending...

What was with the ending, when Rick watched his love interest walk away at the end with her husband and he grabbed his pistol. Whats the meaning behind that?

Having lived in the area; my first guess would be Woodbridge. It's a pretty good walk away though. Could be Winchester too but that's even further out.

Carol's threat to the kid was scary.

And the way they're behaving, stashing weapons, breaking into the armory, coveting the wife, etc. makes the group look shady.

I wonder if there's walkers out there with an "A" scratched into their foreheads? Maybe Alexandria and some other town that starts with a "W" are playing a real-life game of SimCity/Clash of Clans? People do incredibly strange things when under the stress these people are.
