Goof god, what is going on?
What was Rick talking about there?
No idea.... this show blows.
I think it's because... if you remember back to like Season 1 with that dude they left to die at that tree, he got bit and then it speeds up the process and you turn faster. Obviously doesn't make much sense, but hardly anything does on this show.
yeah i just need to let the logic go and accept the plot holes.
I thought she was seeking out a preggerz zombie. But when they showed the chicks belly, it didn't look that way, so I have no clue.
1) NuCarl > NuRick > *
2) The yard was full of dead Walkers, presumably half female. Good idea to go kill one more and open up the fence to bring the corpse in.
3) RIP BigTiny
This is seriously one of the dumbest shows I've ever seen.
Why is the girl telling her dad it's okay to let go and die when she knows he'll just turn into a zombie. And WTF with the zombie C-section?
Yeah I was hoping HOF BigTiny was there to stay
This show is great, in a 24 kind of way, although obviously far less so. You guys complaining are so:
As in most things, Tabe is right.
I'd watch a hundred stupid/illogical decisions for 1 shot per episode of machete to the brain of terribly written "bad guy in the prison" charater. It was a machete! to the brain! Dead center!
Because it's probably in Hershels best interest to just die. He's old, he's got one leg that won't be treated properly and he's still living in a world full of zombies. What is he holding on for?
Just die, turn into a zombie, have a piece of rebar shoved into his head and be a peace.
Why give up when there's a chance you could have a spear leg to stab zombies with?
Clearly Maggie hadn't considered that when she told Hershel to give up and Hershel had thought of it, which is why he survived.
I thought the episode was pretty good. I'm not really sure why a lot of the people posting in this thread are watching the show if they are worried about believability. The part that bothered me the most about this episode was they went through all the trouble of Maggie saying goodbye and making peace with Hershel's death just to have him survive? Seems like a waste. I would have much rather had him bite Laurie's face off.
not sure why everyone is saying the yard should be half female...is it typical of prisons to allow men and women in the same yard? I've assumed from the beginning of this season that since they are only killing male walkers throughout this prison that it's an all male prison.
Yeah but they did kill that female civilian in the gate I remember cause someone mentioned it. Maybe one of the prison dudes did.
Can someone clarify if the short haired chick was actually looking for a pregnant zombie or was just looking for a female zombie period. Cause I'm still confused by that.
thats a damn good point
Believability shouldn't be discussed. It's a show about zombies taking over the world. Zombies taking over the world.
Without watching the episode again, I don't believe anyone in that outer yard was in prison wear, so it was likely full of civilians. The inner yard was full of male prisoners and male security.
A reasonable explanation as to why they had to go kill another woman zombie is that they burned all the bodies from when they cleared the yard.
edit: I take it back. Just watched the scene again and all the zombies in that yard are male prisoners. There are female zombies in the scene, but they are in a different fenced off area.

People bitch just to bitch because it's part of their nature, I can't think of anything more pointless than arguing the believability of minute details in a SHOW ABOUT ZOMBIES.
From episode 1: Most, if not all, of the zombies killed in the outer yard were wearing prison uniforms. They said they found one female civilian in the inner yard area that they locked up (during the group rush of the yard when they first discovered the guard zombies with body armor/helmets, before finding the cleared cell block) which indicated that the outer wall was breached somewhere else.
From this week: Carol wasn't looking for a pregnant zombie, just a woman, so she could practice cutting open a uterus (prep for C section). Didn't need to be pregnant, just needed a cadaver for practice.
I disagree. Just because you accept the unrealistic premise of the show doesn't mean you also have to accept the unrealistic actions/choices the characters in the show make without ever getting bitten/scratched by zombies.
I'm not saying blindly ignore everything, but arguing over extremely minute details like how a female walker got in the yard just seems very pointless to me, it's the main reason so many people lost their shit over how Lost ended, because people like to overanalyze.
I can accept that there are zombies because that is the point of the show, but that doesn't mean that I have to accept people doing completely illogical things.
