I keep wishing the show would split the characters up. I kept thinking how awesome it would have been if it had simply ended with them going their separate ways after the tragedy and for next season to pick up six months later as they've regrouped or... Whatever the hell.
They did that on season 3 of Lost. Fans didn't like seeing the group split up like that, although it might force some characters like T-Dog and Carol (seriously, Mal, Sheila? How do you get Sheila from Carol?) to step things up in the character department.
Laurie's pregnancy without shane's presence is a stupid plotline. Unless she's super pregnant next season, which requires a time jump, there's no way for it to be even remotely relevant. I smell a miscarriage. Which should have happened when she flipped her car, but whatever.
Hmm, good point. How many days have passed since Rick woke up in the hospital? It probably hadn't even been a month yet.
Let's recap: Rick didn't want Carl to learn to shoot. Who did and gave him a gun? Shane. When Carl showed his inner douche prick and told Sheila (is that her fucking name?) Heaven doesn't exist, who cursed him out? Rick. Who said they should just "talk to him?" Laurie.
Honey, if you want to be upset with someone, find a shattered rearview mirror in an abandoned car in some ditch and take a good, hard look.
Actually, wasn't it Rick who let Carl keep the gun? I'm not the biggest Laurie fan but her reaction to Carl being the one who put Shane down seems totally reasonable to me.
And then, without ever having created some emergency meet up spot at any point this season (which appalled me, honestly) they all miraculously wind up at the highway at the same fucking time.
Nit pick. The highway seems like the obvious meet up spot since they were camped there for a while. Plus Daryle followed Glen when he spotted his car. And T-Dog wasn't headed in that direction until Laurie told him to go back. And unless you want the episode to have all the characters waiting around until they all hook up again, I don't see what's wrong with how quickly it happened.
One thing I think we can all be relived about is T-Dog surviving.
Stay strong, you black prince, stay strong.
