"I was thinking the same thing. I never read the comics but I'm thinking the whole story about him being a doctor with the cure and needing to go to DC is a bunch of BS."

I agree there is something clearly wrong with the "doctor."

When he responded to Glen's question what would he do in DC by saying "It's classified."
My immediate response was -- Classified from who? -- there is practically no one left and clearly rival governments are no longer a concern.

That's what I thought. If it's so important to the survival of the human race, wouldn't you want someone else to know in case you died? And where the hell has this guy been that he's still traveling to DC when the zombie apocalypse is in its 3rd year by my calculations? I mean they did say a few weeks ago they lost contact with DC, but if that's the case, why does losing contact necessitate him going to DC when whatever he was doing until then was fine at a remote location?

The first time Eugene spoke, I instantly thought they were trying to portray Aspergers. His later statements seem to reflect that as well. They're using a very distinctive vocal pattern, movement style, and personality for him. The way he went for the rifle and how he was shooting seemed to imply he's not panicking or flinching, he just saw it as a problem to solve and it didn't pan out because of a variable factor. Combine that with the Sergeant who is definitely wishing to relive his glory days where he was in-control of his life, very intriguing group. Except for the Daisy Dukes girl. Really?

Thank you. I had exactly the same reaction. Exactly. I hope they run with that; that would be a very interesting angle to pursue.

I have read the graphic novels but won't potentially spoil Eugene's role for anyone. I say 'potentially' because the TV series has amply demonstrated that the GN is not canon.

And for the record: Rosita isn't hot. She's smokin' hot.

This was the first installment since the mid-season premiere that I've really gotten into from start to finish. Some really well done development of Michonne's character through her interactions with Carl. And that cat and mouse sequence with Rick and the hunters was as tense and well done as anything I've seen since season one.

Glenn rises in my esteem with each passing season.

I wonder what's at the end of that rail line? Douglas, Jesus or Negan? <shudder>

I want to thank Rosita for showing us all how a true survivor of a zombie apocalypse should dress. I have sold all my armor and will now greet the end times with nothing but daisy dukes and a crop top.

*sigh*

I had thought that this show was trying, at least by Hollywood standards, to be realistic. Then zombie apocalypse barbie showed up. She....she looks like a video game character. Perhaps she was doing some cosplay at Dragon Con when the shit hit the fan or somthing.

Did anyone else notice what was said after the dude that Rick choked in the bathroom reanimated?

Rick was hiding outside, about to shoot the guy that was sitting on the porch, when you hear a walker moaning inside (presumably the guy that Rick strangled in the bathroom)......Then you hear the sounds of a commotion inside.....and then a guy starts yelling.

Closed captioning read it as "Get her, get her!", then "Kill her, kill her!"


I know that they switched the episode air dates. Last night's episode was originally supposed to air next week, and next week's last night. Next week's episode looks to be a Beth & Daryl-centric one......So now I'm wondering if the "Get her...Kill her" thing may have something to do with Beth?

More exotic full auto foreign military small arms! Man this show must have a gold club members card at 1980's Discount Movie Guns Warehouse. Glad Rick got Chuck Norris's favorite smg, shouldn't have to reload it. That would explain why the bandit carrying it didn't have any extra mags I guess. :D

For that matter, where's Rick and Carl keeping all that 9mm and .357 magnum at? I mean...they just escaped with only the clothes on their backs. And we never see them actually looking for things. The three of them are in that neighborhood where they rejoined each other.....and DON'T ransack every house? There seems to be very little walker activity there.

Yes....I know....I know....

But sometimes the writers should at least TRY....

I believe that Carl is out of ammo, hence why he grabbed the Python when he thought Rick had died & turned a couple episodes back, and why Rick handed him the Python when Carl & Michonne left to start ransacking.....scavenging at the other houses on the street.

Not sure what you mean by never seeing them actually looking for things. I thought that was the whole point of Carl and Michonne setting out on the supply run. Didn't she say something like "We're looking for food, ammo and batteries, in that order."

And I interpreted Rick giving his .357 to his son when he and Michonne set out as meaning that Carl had used up all his ammo in last week's episode, rendering the 9mm useless.

I actually found that pretty realistic: they were down to one functioning firearm and Rick's decision to lend out his hand cannon proved to be rather fateful. Seeing how he was totally unarmed when the hunters showed up.

I considered this but then why is no one else dressed like her? I've dealt with some bad heat and humidity and would still prefer pants in this kind of situation. I suppose it comes from them wanting to have the character look how she did in the comics.

I saw him loaning out the Python. Figured the kids gun is empty.

Michone must know that. Why didn't she scavenge that pink kids room when she found that lady and her kids where the lady killed them/herself? She had a gun. Probably ammo somewhere in that room or house too. Also could have grabbed that gun in the suicide corpses hands.

Even just one extra round is one extra round they didn't have before. Look at wrapped up artwork, ignore revolver.

+1 on the Aspergers, but that could make him a legit doctor and genius. I know a few guys with Aspergers that are very, very smart but they are a bit clumsy (fumbling with the AR) and are socially awkward and say "inappropriate" things (I'm smarter than you).

In watching the Talking Dead, they said they tried to match the look to the comics and Rosita look and even the choice of guns is exact. I hope its just an homage to the Graphic novel fans and not a long term thing. Not that I don't mind seeing some skin, she is hot, but I hate for the TV show to get too campy and unrealistic.

2. That's a lot of skin showing. No protection from biters at all. Might as well run around nekkid.

3. She would be showing even more skin if she weren't so model-thin. Where's the rangy muscle that three years of PAW living would bring?

4. Those hoop earrings are bound to snag on some shit. She should have shredded earlobes by now.

5. She's pretty, but also pretty ridiculous.

ETA: 6. No scratches, bruises or scars. She's had an easy PAW life so far.

She's also apparently had time to shave her legs.

I agree that Eugene could indeed be a gifted scientist, Aspie status would only increase the odds of that. While I was working as a counselor at a college I kept seeing top-shelf scholars who suffered from the same symptoms, particularly in the hard science fields where interaction wasn't necessary. I'm honestly pretty excited that this is being portrayed both because it gives exposure to the status, which I do not consider a handicap, and also is an interesting reflection point when it comes to how some individuals have to react to emergencies.

Googling it, apparently the actor who plays Milton in Season 3 was attempting to appear to be on the autistic spectrum, albeit it only shows in his philosophies and subtle social cues. High functioning Aspergers can seem completely mainstream, except for a few small cues such as being less empathic or fixation on a field. Milton portrays this subtle form while Eugene seems to be the more distinctive type in which it's both noticeable and affects everyday functioning. Milton was unable to grasp that his experiments could be as dangerous as they were because he had not seen direct evidence thus far, but was still taking relative precautions. Eugene meanwhile attempts to solve a problem and doesn't grasp critical factors such as his physical ability, the group's dynamic, his relative safety, and the priorities of their resources.
