Very good episode!
I felt so sorry for Rick when he heard Lori. None of them actually realized how lucky they were to have an intact family. The rest of the group all lost their whole family or at least one member, but they were so damn lucky. And still Rick and Lori prefered resentment. I hope Rick will forgive himself and be at ease with his own mind someday.
Loved Daryl and Carl scene. I could not understand too much of what Daryl was saying, but I guess there was something to do about his mother? And poor Carol, I am glad she is alive! Daryl saving her... as always. But nice, anyway.
Now, I never read the comics but I know the fans love Woodbury and the Governor and how evil he is and all... but really, the scenes there bore the hell out of me. I like Andrea and hey, a girl has needs and good for her to be having some fun, but everytime it cut to her and the Governor I would do something else.
Michonne is just GREAT. Just that.
That's exactly why I watch with captions! Daryl was telling Carl a story about how his mom died. He said he was outside playing with some other kids when they all heard sirens. They rode their bikes to follow the action, but Daryl went on foot because he didn't have one. By the time he got there all the kids were staring at him cause it was his house that was on fire. Turns out his mom was a drunk and burned the house down killing herself in the process. We're to assume that she was drunk, and in bed with a cigarette (probably fell asleep) which started the blaze.
