Oops sorry for the continuation, didn't see the word limit, perhaps I shouldn't ramble :-) Just wanted to add about Daryl that I thought there might have been a little more reaction from him at finding Carol's scarf seeing as they have been close for a long time even though he is very closed off. Perhaps we'll see more next episode, I don't believe Carol is dead, at least I hope not! I'll miss T-Dog he had a great calm, stoic, dependable presence it's a shame he couldn't have been subtly rewritten to bring him more to the forefront before losing him, but what a way to go.
Loved the whole episode Woodbury scenes were great too but this episode belonged to the prison.
I thought this episode was a cracker I suspected Lori might be killed in childbirth unlike in the comics and you could see that this attack would probably trigger labour but what a dramatic and perfectly acted episode! I loved the way Maggie couldn't form words when she and Carl emerged from the building, Carls stony shocked closed down expression and Rik's range of reactions were so realistic from his initial incredulous almost happily expectant - because he couldn't believe she was not with them - 'where is she', to his collapse. Oh and I don't think Lori cheated on Rick, as far as she new her husband was dead and she was thrown into extreme danger with her child, Shane was a strong person that she knew well, I'm sure it was a 'clinging together' in adversity type of thing, even though there were hints that Rick and Lori's marriage was not perfect before the disaster.
I know Daryl is very self contained and does not show emotion easily (love his character) but I thought there could have been a little more of a reaction to finding Carol's scarf perhaps we will see more of his reaction in the next episode (I don't believe she is dead, at least I hope not!). I will miss T-Dog and it's a shame they couldn't have subtly rewritten his character to give hime at least a few more episodes to shine, he was a calm stoic dependable presence. Loved the way they cut to Woodbury setting up the scene but this episode belonged to the prison. Just loved the whole thing. Sheesh sorry for rambling on so.
Spot on review. I love the show but had an 'Oh no!' moment when they (the writers) started harping on about Penny not being happy with Leonard AGAIN. They suit each other, I'd appreciate it if their relationship could be explored in a positive way happy couples can be funny too, more funny than miserable Penny and Leonard at the very least. I like Stuart in the show but don't think I'd like him to replace Walowitz as Raj's new bessie, as mentioned elsewhere perhaps as his boyfriend :).
