LOL. We need some zombie emoticons in this thread.

Lol, come on don't you see it. Oh well, sorry female WD fans, I think it is true and Aaron will bring Darryl out of the closet very soon :-)..

Daryl and Carol will never happen, she is not his type and neither is Michonne, only Aaron. You will see Darryl and Aaron working on that motorcycle in the garage together and things will get interesting, this is going to be a soap opera very soon :-)

BTW, what is emoji12?

But those 30 mins are oh so good yes I used an emoji that shows on the app (almost all do) but may not show on other platforms.

Personally I haven't noticed short run times, the only time I do is when watching GoT and sometimes it feels like the rug got pulled out from under me I get so into the show.

You would be correct, I usually use emojis as "enhancers" sarcasm seems to be missed a lot without them these days. So a wink or gives note that I wasn't being serious without me having to say "that was a joke".

Anyone else notice the possible foreshadowing of Rick, Darryl and Carol all walking in seperate directions when they entered town after going out to that shack? To me that was foreshadowing a split among them before the season is over. Rick and Carol could be over the wife and her kid, Darryl gets in with aaron and his bf and they all have different agendas then.

There's no way Carol can stay in that community... She's threatening to kill little kids in their sleep now. IF they have peace in town, Carol will eventually be outed and forced to leave. IF they have war, she's an unlikable character that has become easy to kill on the show.

Mark my words... Carol will be gone sooner rather than later.

Aaron (Ross Marquand) was on the latest Talking Dead. He does impressions and nailed McConaughey. Here a vid of him doing more. He's good.

Somehow the Patrick Swayze/Demi Moore Pottery scene from Ghost keeps popping in my brain. :O


Ahhh!!! Get Out!!!


P.S. I thought Michonne and Abraham were having a moment. Luckily, the scene switched to Carol!

Lol. Yea I noticed that scene too and yes luckily it did switch. Honestly I cannot see anyone with anyone, hence Glenn & Maggie. lol...

Lol for real, why are Tara, Ugene and noah even on the show. They are like the expendable ones. I really think they made a huge mistake killing off Tyreese, SMFH.. Ohh and I even forgot about Father Gabriel Stokes. I don't get it, this is such a strange season


Did Tyreese die in the comic books so fast?

---------------
43min 04 sec total
1min, 19sec old material
41min, 45 seconds new material
Sounds about right, and we just talked about this a week ago on episode 12.

Quote:
Good guess, with the 30 sec catch-up included but the previews for the next episode not included there wer 42:38 mins of actual screen time. With a programmed runtime of 1:01 minutes, 42:38 comes out to right about 69%(.69945) of actual program, the rest was all commercials and the previews for next week. There were 5 commercial breaks of 1:15, 3:31, 4:07, 4:36, 4:16 and then the 22 sec preview(w/Microsoft ad).

Hold on now. To be fair, Carol threatened to kidnap him in his sleep, leaving him to wake up alone far from home to be eaten by walkers, and NOT to be killed in his sleep.

They showed the horse running past walkers in the open field. The place where it was killed was an area with fences coming together in an acute angle.

no rhyme or reason to kill him except as a plot device to get Arron and Daryl closer together...for what reason we yet know.

regression...so anyone read the Rise of the Governor series? Highly recommended as it puts the governor in a different perspective and explains lot. I am reading that and also going back and re-watching all the seasons. Presently on S4 episodes after the Governor sets out on his own.

No, I hate the Governor and the actor who played the Governor, I am glad that season is over and I would never watch it again. R.I.H.

Is there anything you don't hate? Perhaps you should spare yourself the suffering and find some other show to watch.

She got caught with her hand in the cookie jar. She had two choices, tell the story or kill him there and then. She knows what it is like to kill children. She didn't like it, even if necessary... So......

She missed the easy play... the kid wanted cookies... she had already taken the chocolate bar... she should have told him that she promised to make him cookies and was there to get the chocolate and was cleaning up while she was in there... and then told him that if he told anyone about seeing her, she would have to give back the chocolate and not be able to make him any cookies.

No need to threaten his life in such a, frankly, well-thought and structured way that it was clear she had put a lot of thought into how she might go about doing it...

He clearly saw her bagging guns. Promising cookies ain't going to make his mind conveniently forget that. He even clearly stated he was going to tell. Whatever the consequences of her threat, I'm glad the show had her address his detection as the threat it was.

He clearly saw her in the room with the guns and he clearly said to her that he had to tell his parents what he saw her doing. Threatening him with not having cookies was not going to cut it.

I would say based on what he said they have developed a system in that town that everyone is watching everyone.

My concern is that the prequel also will not reveal the source or reason for the outbreak. Then it becomes almost a remake of the original, where Rick wakes up to discover the world overrun. Also it's a given most will die, since we already know that most died.
