    Agree, I thought the implication of the Alpha / Beta scene was that they had moved south to avoid the snow, but yea they would have had to have moved a long way in a short period of time in order for the weather to be that much better.

    I also did not understand why they all left the Kingdom either. I get it that their resources were supposedly running low, but they did not appear to be going anywhere before the fair, so why would they all have to leave after the fair, especially in the middle of a blinding snow storm?

    The Carol and Ezikeal break up did not make much sense either.

    Overall I thought this season was a step up from the last few, but it still had it's fair share of really dumb episodes.

    Haven't the foggiest. What was Ezekiel trying to tell Daryl? To steer clear? It sounded the way a guy talks when he thinks another guy's a threat to his relationship.

    They were so frozen, in fact, that when hit in the head, it was like glass shattering. And yet, others were moving around just fine?

    IKR? That's how I took it, too. From what we've seen, Carol has never once showed any romantic interest toward Daryl. Why Ezekiel suddenly gets jealous was a total mystery.

    And why does Carol feel she needs to go to Alexandria?


    BTW, I know it's become commonplace in movies/TV, but if any of you ever find yourself writing a script or directing something please remember this: the phrase "over and out" is a contradiction in terms. From the Oxford dictionary:

    Over - In radio communication: used to indicate that the speaker has finished speaking and is awaiting a reply.
    Out - In radio communication: used to indicate the end of a message, when the speaker has finished speaking and expects no reply.

    So, to say "over and out" means you're both expecting and not expecting a reply.

    There's a similar thing with asap. As with many odd terms that enter the vernacular, this came from the military. It's pronounced as a word: a-sap. Why people started spelling it out is mystery but is typical of stupid Hollywood-isms.

    That was the last straw. I'm pretty sure I'm bailing at this point.

    I want to, but I just can't with all the time I have invested in this crap! I'm at the point where I have it on while doing other things.

    I thought it was a flash-forward - possibly some weeks after the storm.

    To the people questioning the Virginia weather - yes, it can snow like that in the DC area, definitely. However, the winters are generally mild and the snow would probably melt after not all that long. So the "flash-forward" would not need to be all that far forward.

    But wasn't this, like, the 5th or 6th winter that these folks have experienced in Virginia? They appear to have made it through all the others without great difficulty...

    Random TWD zombie mythology observation: if brain death is the only way to kill a zombie, then I would think that being actually frozen would kill them, as all of the blood vessels in the brain would burst. In any event, we do see that sub-freezing temperatures can incapacitate them, making them very easy to kill. That being the case, wouldn't moving to a colder climate be BY FAR the best way to establish a post-zombie community (and places like - ahem - Georgia, Los Angeles and Mexico, be the worst?). In addition to having much fewer zombies (because of fewer population centers in northern climates like Canada, as well as the total zombie deaths that would occur every winter), the colder climates would force people to wear more clothes when outside, which would protect against bites. Additionally, there would be a great food supply, due to the wilderness/animals. Lastly, there would be a greater degree of protection against other human colonies, as there would just be fewer of them (there are fewer people to start with, in the non-urban parts of Canada, and there is plenty of land to go around, especially for the incredibly small number of human survivors left). Of course, then we'd just be left with a show about post apocalyptic communities hanging out in Canada. Not too interesting of a horror show, eh?

    Same here. I often find myself putzing around on the computer while watching, but I am still watching. The wife still likes it more than I do, but we are probably in for the duration.

    Yup, I have thought many of those thoughts from the beginning. Moving up north would have many advantages.

    So is there any truth to this legend I heard that Chandler Riggs was let go because his dad was "making a living" taking people on unsanctioned guided tours of shooting locations from The Walking Dead?

    I don't know if that is why Riggs was let go, but his dad was doing tours: https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUser...a_Georgia.html
