Yeah, Daryl won't like that too much at all. Interesting to see how that plays out.

This was the first episode I was able to watch live. Finally all caught up. I don't know that any stars were killed off (though I was legitimately concerned that Glen was going to possibly turn). It was a good way to get rid of the tertiary characters who joined the prison from the town at the end of Season 3. Someone in this thread I think anticipated it after the Season Premiere, and they hit the nail on the head.

What I'm interested in is why such a severe flu epidemic hit and why it was so severe (if there is more to that story). Also I can't get enough of them having to fight off huge groups of walkers. I feel like it's such a simplistic thing, but I fall for it every time, essentially no matter what. A huge group attacks, and I'm engaged.

My students who watch the show and have read the graphic novels seemed to be pretty pumped this morning about whatever they are anticipating to be coming up soon. So that was also encouraging.

that somebody was me.

I thought Glen was a goner for sure, and i still cant figure how Hershel survives that room. Airborne virus, people spitting poisonous blood, a zombie with a gun, and he did it all on one good leg. ... so, Carol, Glen and Hershel looked to be goners .. in a week.

oh, and this show could go on for a decade if Carl and that little blond girl they keep showcasing hook up ...
We just need the governor to procreate with Michonne, and they'd have the perfect villain

Wasn't too crazy about this episode especially with seeing the Governor at the end as I don't like that guy or his character. What's the bet that Carol shows up to get involved with the Governor storyline when you least expect it? Either saving them or helping the Governor.
They've got to get out of the prison and get on the road again.

It's my belief that the Governor is the main antagonist in much of the graphic novel, right? I have no idea how close they're following that (and I imagine the answer is 'not much'), but I think we've got him for at least the remainder of the season, if not further into the future. The problem once he's gone is coming up with another primary antagonist. You've always got the walkers, but people tend to generally want a central force, be it finding out that there's somewhere someone (or some group) behind the outbreak, who they can go after (which would SO be the TV thing to do, and I'd probably hate) or what have you. People will only follow along with people just trying to survive for so long (or so television networks would have you think, based on their plot developments) without having some strong central villain/group. For a little while you had Shane, to a degree, and then you had Hershel's group on the farm, again, to a degree.

I definitely prefer when they're on the run, though, and hope that they vacate the prison soon enough.

I will say, though, that I've really enjoyed the show as a whole. I was expecting at some point to kind of be over the whole premise, but I'm far from it here mid-way through the 4th season.

As an aside, I really hated when the first old guy died cause I really liked him and couldn't stand Hershel. Now I like Hershel so much that I can't even remember the first old guy's name.

Thoughts on the Governor-centric episode?

I don't know what that is, but tell me and I'm all in.

I liked this little divergence over the last two episodes leading us back to where we were at. I liked last week a lot, and then I really liked this week as well.
