When Rick drew all the walkers away from the fence last night I was thinking, "Ok, now kill them all" (grenades, 50 cal machinegun, gasoline and fire, etc). But no....
I agree completely. There's no reason a zombie outbreak at the prison should've ever taken so many people. Last season when there were only a dozen or so folks at the prision I thought it was dumb that they didn't lock down the cell block and the individual cells. You could hang the keys just outside each cell. Zombies don't use keys. Problem solved. I also thought it was rather convenient that the zombie kid from the shower scene went for a throat kill and all subsuquent zombie attacks were near silent. How are a dozen or more people dismembered before an alarm is raised?
Why would Rick lead the zombie horde away from the gates but not kill any of them? How long are a couple of pigglets gonna feed 50+ zombies?
Why would anyone be allowed to go near the fence at night to feed the zombies? curfew? security? I take it Glen couldn't hear the ruckus on account of Maggie so I suppose he's excused.
With mankind's population back to 10,000B.C. levels, and pig farms around the world decimated, we're supposed to believe swine flu has mutated on it's own into a more deadly, eye-popping, 24-hr killer.
Has this show changed writers again? Don't get me wrong, I managed to enjoy the episode but there seems to be a blatent inability to fix plot holes this season in particular. And the fixes are soooo easy.
I left last night's episode feeling terrible most of all for Tyrese. He never got to hit it.... First rule of zombie apocalypse is that the 3-date waiting period is suspended.
