no kidding. i honestly thought this was going to be an OK show when i saw the first few episodes of the first season. i also thought it would turn into a normal zombie show, with tons of dumb circumstances and mindless violence.

now its season 3 and show 4, and its by far at its best yet. im getting sucked in, and thats very hard for me to do on a tv show. not everything about this show is believable, but most of it is. definitely far exceeding my expectations!

Yeah, in at least one scene (of Lori scolding Shane), it was made quite clear that she didn't do anything with Shane until she believed that Rick was dead. And she was never quite sure if Shane really believed Rick was dead, or if he just said that to get with Lori. (Of course, Shane did believe Rick was a goner... But Lori was never sure of that.)

So glad she's gone, I have never liked her as an actress. Will be curious to see rick's freak out/rampage episode, then to see the characters grow a little more.

It couldn't have been more then 3 days, or Rick would have died of dehydration. In the flashback we see in the opening of one of the CDC episodes we see the hospital being overrun by zombies and Shane trying to get Rick out. In the end he gives up and decides to save himself and barricades Rick in a room exactly how we find him when he wakes up.

of course I read TV reviews on episodes. especially big ones like TWD.

and I read at least 10. all over the web.
critics are calling it the best episode of the series so far.

If the hunt is 1 on 1, you would be right. But if a zombie startles a deer and it starts running, making noise, a few more will be attracted, and could get caught by one that the deer happens to be running by, from being startled on first one.

People tend to forget zombies strengths is not speed, power, or logic. But sheer numbers.

Also it's entirely feasible a zombie stumbles upon an injured/sick/etc. deer (it happens in the wild) and enjoys a happy meal.

Deer have to sleep. They can also get stuck in fences.

I imagine zombies are pretty poor at catching deer, but numbers and time mean they will get a few. So while it's a lucky coincidence, I think it's still believable.

He did have an IV in him... Not sure how long that would stave off dehydration.

I'm probably totally wrong here

But what if Carl didn't actually shoot Lori?

We only heard the gunshot

That's what I recall. But in the first episode when he wakes up, the flowers on the bed stand next to him are dead and dry. I don't know much about flowers but I don't think they die in 3 days, do they? Either way, when he came out of the hospital it looked like everything had calmed down a few weeks ago.

Well if he didn't she's going to bleed out and come back a zombie.

I though the exact same thing and was about to post it.

They're building Carl up as such a bad-ass; how cool would it be if zombie Lori shows up and shows that Carl couldn't do it? Not that I blame him, but I think that would be a good season finale reveal.

I am going to guess they will be burying her next episode and they will be able to tell if he shot her in the brain.

I've always had this thought in the back of my mind that Rick has some mutation of the zombie virus that allows him to not only reanimate, but also to restore the rest of the body as well. A modern day Lazarus if you will.

Resistant to zombie virus, I can see adding that to the show. But making people super human? That's when I bail.

I think he shot her. He's manning up. But it would be great (sickly and comically) if she ate her own baby.

If it's any consolation, there's no evidence for rocky's idea in the comic - in fact there's some evidence against it (which would be a possible upcoming spoiler for the show).
