That image doesn't show all the heads. But it was the national guard head that I was thinking.

Top right tank looks like them:

Lol I just read this earlier today.

I can't imagine what went on there, but my gal doesn't like the show mostly because of the gore, she just go in the bedroom until is over.

I can see if she would want me to turn it off I guess you guys would be reading about me then, but dude dvr it is that's the problem tongue.gif

^ Wow! Can you imagine if that guy was a forum member and disagreed with many of us? We'd probably all be shot...jeez. It's just a TV show folks. smile.gif

If you are only thinking one hadn't looked turned yet (the national guard), perhaps it was put into the tank so early that the virus hadn't taken control of it yet and turned it, there seems to be a long time that someone turns and they sepcifically said that it varies in people, Andrea's sister took a long time. So if they just put his head in there, it probably didn't turn yet.

We see the national guard head in the tank twice I believe. Once when Gov sits down in front of all of them and second time when Michonne sees them. Not sure how much time has past between those two.
But I'm not even 100% sure the national guard head wasn't biting or shifty eyed. I just thought it still looked dead-dead when Michonne saw it.

Why would she stay behind to kill him (other than the fact that he sent Merle after her...wouldn't she rather kill Merle)? In the comics Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
the governor raped and tortured Michonne for days/weeks. She also did a lot more than stab him in the eye as payback (she actually scooped his eye out with a spoon, cut off an arm and castrated him)
I realize that's probably too intense for a tv show, but it felt more compelling than last night's show.

Yeah, that was a bit of a disconnect for me why she would risk so much to try and kill him, or whatever she had in mind, so the comics fleshed that out better. I suppose one could argue she was doing it for Andrea to take out the Gov before he hurts Andrea. Still, a nice ending and looking forward to February

I can understand liking the comics more than the show I guess. But when Kirkland writes the episode one has to feel he's comfortable with the changes. As has been said they are different media types, What works well in one might not work as well in the other.
post #3341 of 6194
I don't know if we can infer anything from the heads we saw in the aquaria. After all, those prostheses cost a lot to make. They probably just filled the tanks with all the heads they had built for previous episodes, and that included MIchonne's pets. Maybe it wasn't meant to imply that he took those particular heads.

Also, notice how only one head on the floor was biting? It's because rigging a head to move is even more expensive, and they had to put a hole in the floor to run the wiring.

When I posted my speculation on the non-biter / turned head that was part of the Govs collection, my intent was to bring up the idea that perhaps the National Guard had been privy to some sort of antidote .. and that's why the head looked normal .. it's a theory ..

But, like I've also said, the Guard massacre was BS IMO simply because they were mowed down way to easy and so far, no one has come looking for them .. so the idea of an organized Governmental area that went hand in hand with that theory may just be my theory ..
post #3343 of 6194
I don't think we'll be seeing any antidote stories (and I hope we won't either.) I think that was why they added the story in season one about the CDC, to get that out of the way.

Why do another strike? She beheaded many more walkers than just her "pets". What's a head gonna do if it's still animated and biting - with no arms or legs to pursue living meals? Just don't take one to bed with you.

I just attributed it to the head hasn't had time to decay yet....or that the Guard's 'life as a zombie' never spent any time in the wild for it to become 'weathered'.

I thought in a previous episode they had tubes going into the heads? Like there was something being done to preserve them.

Will never happen, they have said repeatedly the show is not about what caused the virus, the cure, etc. it is about the people and how they deal with it, and even more so how they deal with each other. The people are the walking dead, the walking dead are not the dead.

Or vice versa .. only time will tell ..
post #3352 of 6194
I agree with the fact that this show is not going to be about the virus or the cure and so on, but I wish it would go there.

I also hope it doesnt get further away from the zombies. I really dont want a show about people interacting or fighting with each other, its the zombie factor that makes this a great show, and this season the action and gore was great. From coming attractions, I worry about next season.
post #3353 of 6194
I'm sure that both people and zombies will continue to cause problems for Rick's group. While the details are quite different, the comics probably provide some hint as to what might be in store tor the protagonists in the TV series.
post #3354 of 6194
Is the comic series completed/finished? Just curious.

Why would anyone come looking for them? I thought where they had been staying had gone to crap. So there would be no one left to come looking for them.

As far as being taken down, the entire scene took only a few seconds. They were fired at from both sides at the same time. The National Guardsmen had no time to even raise their guns to shoot anyone. That is what happens if an ambush is done properly. Everyone doing the ambush has a target and tries to take them out at the same time.
post #3360 of 6194
also as far as anyone goes trying to predict the series or episodes due to reading the comics I can easily say it has gone in an entirely different direction. it is as unpredictable as anything and aside from rick and the governor being the main characters of this time period nothing is the same..which is awesome..
