Carl is an idiot, kid is always trying to get himself killed. Really surprised they killed off Dale, thought he would stick around to be the catalyst of more morality based debates. Good episode. Love this show
Edit: I think Rick should have offed Dale, show that he has what it takes to do the hard things. But I did like how he finally made Shane **** and bow down.
Question for all of you who continue to piss and moan about T-Dogs lack of lines and everything else: Why the **** are you still watching the show, much less posting about it, if you find so many problems with it?
They should never have let Frank Darabont go. I feel none of the problems we have seen so far in season 2 with the characters and writing would have happened under his watch.
The whole first half of this season was under his watch, wasn't it? I thought that the new guy was only really running things for the last 3 or 4 episodes - the first half of this season was still Farabont's conception. It was only the second half (post-hiatus) that was entirely the new guy's stuff.
IMHO, the show's gotten better since the new guy got to take completely over.
And isn't the army-stuff that Darabont spoke about with aintitcool just a single episode? I read that as Darabont wanted to open the season with that episode but from there on, everything would have still been at the farm.
Good episode. Dale had a lot of screen time and dialogue in that episode, and they really tried to put him over as a likeable character before they killed him. For me, it worked well. His death was a sad scene imo. He's been pretty annoying at times, but it's hard to hate on somebody whom ultimately has everyone's best interests at heart.
I was thinking the zombie that Carl was teasing was going to lead the charge back to the farm, which could still happen I suppose. Hopefully it does.
Also, I'm still holding onto that hope that they end S2 with a twist about how people turn to zombies. I thought it would be Shane, but even if it's Randall that would be fine by me. Somebody finally decides to kill him, shooting him in the chest a few times. The group sits there in silence, some happy it's over and others pissed they killed a kid...then Randall gets up zombie style cuz he wasn't shot in the head and the season ends.
I thought that the last episode was great while this one was the exact opposite.
I thought the last episode really moved the pace well and set up some real good action for the last 3 episodes instead they wasted most of this episode talking about what to do with Randall, give me a break.
It's never a good thing to have nearly an entire episode based on talking and debating when most of the characters are as uninteresting as this group is.
Also, how dumb is Carl to venture into the woods on his own and to provoke the Walker, the kid clearly takes after his mothers's side. Two dumb peas in a pod.
Also, how could Rick and Lori just let him venture into the woods by himself, did they all of a sudden forget that this is a post-apocalyptic world and decide to just let him roam around by himself?
I sure hope that Dale dying isn't the big bang of this season but i have a feeling that nothing of consequence happens again until the end of the season finale.
Prove me wrong TWD writers.
Surprised Dale got killed off, and he died not knowing what they did with the boy, that's a shame. Would've been cool if Rick was like hey Dale, we didn't kill him...BAM then shot him.
Starting to really hate Carl, I think another poster said this and I totally agree that Daryl is gonna be relying on that gun he had in a pinch and realize it's gone, hopefully the writers cover that next episode when Carl reveals how much he sucks.
"saw that zombie, didn't tell anyone. Daryl, I left your gun in the woods. I wander a lot, probably have ADD or something."
Next week looks cool, I bet Shane stages that Randall got away so the group has no choice but to deal with him, I don't think Shane could get suckered by Randall.
Well, finally saw it. Interesting turn of events. The whole movie talking about killing the guy, only to stop at the last second, and then have Dale die. Kind of funny. It was all kind of cliche, with the kid trying to become a man, but realizing he is still just a kid.
Either way, the kid, who was always annoying, went from the top of my list to the bottom in the span of an hour He was in the middle, but then he told Sophia's mom that heaven wasn't real and she was stupid for believing in it, which made me laugh uncontrollably and skyrocketed the kid to the top of my awesome list, but then he had to go and act like a loser with the zombie which, in turn, killed Dale.
Also, I thought it was hilariously awesome that T-Dogg finally ended up in a scene, where everyone is having a meeting to speak their minds, and he finally gets a sentence in and is cut off. I hope his paychecks are nice because that is quite literally the easiest job that actor will ever have in his career.
"It has not been a good day. I lost my glasses early this morning and I had to go buy a pair of 79 dollar reading glasses today. 79 bucks. You can literally get them at Costco, three-for-20." - Darryl Sutter's response to going up 2-0 in the series.
All I can say for Dale is killer death scene! The show is a bit hokey, but I'm glad they are branching off from the storylines in the comics. Keeps things fresh (and saved us from the Dale/Andrea pairing!).
