    I LOVED Rick's interaction with Michonne at the end. They shared something very intimate about themselves which almost no one else knows about. They basically shared their demons with each other. It was a growing moment for the characters I had been waiting for all year. It instantly bumped Michonne to the top of my favorite characters list. And it gave Rick back a lot of points.

    And what kills me is that it was so simple. It took twenty seconds and a few lines of dialogue. It just frustrates me they have been neglecting these things for so long.

    It only upsets me because the show goes out of it's way to show you that the staff DOES KNOW HOW to do it, they just are too lazy to do it all the time (see Darryl and the flower, Hershel and Glenn's talk a few episodes ago, and mroe little scenes that are too few and far betwee)
    Too sexy?

That last episode completely redefined Michonne, and it was so easy to do.
    That's why I have a great feeling for this coming season. There's an article on CBR http://www.comicbookresources.com/?p...ticle&id=44094 and they mention how Gimple's writing is more character driven and how they're bringing more of a tone like in the first season. I'm fine with that, especially if they have that, but without the pacing issues that plagued the first 1/2 of season 2 (and kinda returned in the 2nd 1/2 of this season). They also said that in season 4, the walker threat is amped up, saying how this season, with the Woodbury threat, pushed the walkers more into the background and not made them as threatening.

    That said, reading that article, I am curious as to which member of Rick's group betrays them, having enough.

    Though they would have had to bring a lot of gas with them to do that...
    It is even possible they only drove say an hour each way. I live within an hour of three prisons here and while I know what cities they're in I can't tell you exactly where they are. I mean even if he is a small town cop it doesn't mean he knows exactly where that prison was unless maybe it is REALLY close. I just get a chuckle that this is something people don't find believable about a show about zombies.

    Why don't they just use their robots to kill the zombies?

    Because Skynet wasn't online yet when the zombie apocalypse hit, dude.

    Sure, I would just be really surprised to hear they were that close to the town. Not because of any particular reason I suppose, it just hadn't occurred to me that might be the case.

    Especially since Rick told Morgan they kept getting pushed back farther into the country. It seems Atlanta may not have been much further away from that town than the prison.

    For those wondering if Rick would have picked up the hitchhiker after Morgan:

    http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/03/...-an-old-friend

    IGN: How do you think it’s going to change Rick in terms of how he views human threats? Obviously the Governor and his people are a problem, but if Rick had run into that hitchhiker, for instance, on the way back from Morgan’s instead of on the way there, do you think he would’ve stopped?

    Kirkman: That’s an interesting question. I think it’s entirely possible, but part of that hitchhiker story is playing up the fact that now that they’ve had their interactions with the Governor and their interactions with the people in that bar, it’s just not safe to talk to somebody out in the open like that. You don’t know if there’s a group of people in the woods waiting to ambush you or what the actual intention of that person is or if they’re just crazy.

    I mean, they’ve encountered a lot of very dangerous people out on the road, so maybe the interaction with Morgan would’ve changed Rick to a point where he would’ve at least talked to that guy, but I don’t know. I think there’s still a good chance he would’ve just driven past him again.
    I get this all the time. They say, "You really hate Daredevil. Look how mean you are to Daredevil." I'm like, "Would you really buy a book about him enjoying a sandwich? 'What a great sandwich. I'm going to eat this for 22 pages, and I'm going to be so happy.'" I may do it just to prove a point. Have Wolverine going, "This is the best bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich I've ever had in my life!"

    That was a pretty good moment. And it was better than most of the other Crazy Rick stuff they've been ham fisting and quickly shoving aside.
