Almost didn't get back from the gym in time to watch, but I made it! Episode analysis:
Not taking issue with Rick continuing his crazy spiral however the continual hallucinations of Lori aren't working for me at all. Once was tolerable, twice is getting ridiculous. Why did they abandon the phone calls? That was a perfectly fine way for Rick to convey his loss of sanity. Of course then they would actually have to think of good relevant dialogue which may have been asking a bit much from the writers given the previous character development this season.
Andrea as leader?!? I like the fact that even Andrea was confused at that LOL, realistic at least. I do believe he was being somewhat honest with Andrea. Of course not about retaliation but about why he was keeping his daughter alive as a walker. It was smart to use that bit of honesty with a lie in order to gain back some credibility, not as much as he needs given what he's done. Although Andrea clearly isn't lovely dovey anymore and is beginning to be suspicious she doesn't realize the situation is way beyond her trying to be the peacemaker.
Daryl is cute. He actually thinks Glenn and Michonne would let Merle live through the night. "Everyone would get use to each other." Lol, adorable.
Glenn stepping up is badass even if he is being a bit reckless. I think Maggie may be deflecting the situation and her anger onto Glenn. A hurt the ones you are closest too sort of thing. She puts up a tough front but I think she is more vulnerable than Carol right now.
Is there someone or something Milton isn't terrified of?
Daryl Dixon saving babies and standing up to Merle? Amazing! And the fangirls swoon!
Although Glenn won all the awards for "Rick wandering crazytown" line.
NOOOO AXEL!! REALLY!? THAT COULDN'T HAVE BEEN ALLEN OR BEN!? IT HAD TO BE AXEL!? That's BS, urgh...
HOW is Michonne missing the Gov?! Since when did being a psychopath give you a force-field!?
I think this is Rick's wake-up call though which is about time.
Overall I really liked this episode, besides the beginning with Lori.
