- why are all those corpses still in the cars along the roads -- they apparently never re-animated?
- when the CDC guy said, "we're all infected," did he mean the Grimes survivors, or all of humanity?
- how did everybody get infected? -- besides the bites or scratches, didn't some folks initially just mysteriously come down with fevers; die; and re-animate (like Morgan's wife seemed to)? Why?
- why did some people get attacked and die and take a little time to reanimate (like Andrea's sister), and others get bitten, and linger sick or dying for days before dying and then re-animating (like, that one guy, in season one, who just feverishly lounged around the Winnebago asking to be put out of his misery)?
- why are so many of these roles played by British actors (Rick, Maggie, Morgan, the Governor...)?
- how long will it take, realistically, to get wi-fi back?
mind-numbingly slow episode, what fans were clearly clamoring for was... more Andrea...? Wait. What?! No one was clamoring for more Andrea, but that's what we got, last night on Walking Dead. Last week: the Governor and Rick finally had their sit-down, and Andrea was quickly booted to the curb by both of them. Where is home now? What is her role in brokering a peace? Apparently, it is to waste an entire episode trying to get to the Prison to warn them about the Governor's intent to torture Michonne and slaughter the rest of them. This episode was as unsuccessful in its focus as Clear was riveting when it narrowed its bottle episode to Rick, Michonne, Carl, and a re-entry of Morgan (oh, and one powerfully metaphorical hitchhiker). Had this week's episode been heavily edited and sped up, and combined with last week's, Arrow on the Doorstep, it might've added up to one good penultimate episode, leading to an epic Finale (as it is, there are still two episodes left, and this season has a serious pacing problem). In the cold open, there is a flashback to Andrea and Michonne's time alone out on the road. As the two girl-bond over assorted canned goods heated over a campfire, Andrea quizzes her about her pets -- her amputee zombies on chains. "They deserve what they got. They wasn't human to begin with," Michonne responds, sounding a lot like Oprah in The Color Purple in her rather pragmatic plainspoken delivery, "I luz Harpo, Lord knows I do...but...") That's it for a flashback?! No flashbacks to the CDC figuring out the Virus and explaining it?! No flashbacks to Daryl Mthrfckin Dixon pre-Apocalypse?! Aside (if we're gonna have flashbacks...and we're all mostly agreed that we should):
