    The childhood abuse book was taken by Daryl actually, it fell out of his bag not Carol’s (she had Tom Sawyer). Daryl and Merle talked about how they were beaten by their father a few seasons ago.

    I really loved this episode, could have watched Carol and Daryl’s excellent adventures all season. So I’m really worried they’re about to kill off Carol.

  • “Could we bring Sophia back for a scene?” You mean the actor who has aged a couple years since she was killed on the show? Or just another actor playing the role?

    Maybe a baby Sophia flashback! 🙂

    It should be interesting to see if the whole cop dynamic plays a factor (with Rick being a former cop and the hospital cops)

    • Cops R Us?

      • StyleZ

        maybe rick will just tell them he’s a construction worker

    Finding Noah multiple times really isn’t a coincidence is it? Daryl and Carol were staking out the hospital because of the vehicles with crosses in the windows. Noah was staking it out because he knows Beth is in there. So the entire city of Atlanta is reduced to a much smaller area for them to run into each other. There wasn’t also a ton of time passing between when Noah stole their weapons and when they caught up to him, so it’s not like days or even hours have passed by. They were on this trail.

    Enjoying the podcast. You talked about the large cast this week. Could the intent be to build up some familiarity and/or popularity, and then move some of the newer or lesser characters to the TWD spinoff?

    • StyleZ

      very doubtful, theyve said that will have a whole new cast/location. If anything its just because they were getting thin and now they can maybe kill some of them off, that or Gimple really likes to split the group up so he can split the plot up and get more outta less as far as the season goes

      • That’s pretty standard in the comic. Encounter a new group of characters – kill a bunch off, and then the survivors become part of the group. And then they meet a new group…

        • StyleZ

          They are getting ready to do a pilot soon. What you are theorizing would then take several years to pay off if they did want to do that. The new series would need to film and air a first season, then on top of that they would have to plot out how the character(s) would leave the current show. This new series could be set in Cali for all we know, so it could be very difficult to set that up, especially considering they have made it pretty clear they want to make this new series stand alone, and pulling characters would contradict that. You’d probably need a season or two of bad ratings for the new season for them to consider doing that

          • I wasn’t “theorizing”. I was confirming what you were saying. 🙂

            That’s how it works in the comics. These aren’t new characters who they are working to build for a spin-off, they are either canon-fodder or replacements for those other characters who will be killed off.

    The show is popular enough that the producers should start adding in guest stars, some popular some reviled…that viewers would like to see get it…I could name a hundred. Who would you guest star??!
    They need to start adding in contemporary pop music as accompaniment.

    Rob, how is Carol a cougar? She and Daryl are practically the same age- both are in their 40’s. Just cause she doesn’t dye her gray hair like Daryl’s actor does doesn’t mean she’s 60 lol. And Beth was a teenager.
