The writers, this season, haven't given a flying flip about explaining anything. There's been NO continuity of characters. Dr. Stevens and Rowan were no doubt cameos who disappeared into the back wall of Woodbury. Explanation? They probably fell when TG gunned down the people.
I saw one baby in his mother's(?) arms enter the prison from the bus. Didn't pause and go back. Any children?
Perhaps we can glean a few new characters from those who don't die off before season four begins. One can only hope the writers will give them personalities and a backstory.
In regards to the baby, when Andrea & Michonne first entered Woodbury and Phillip was showing them around, he pointed to one very pregnant woman and said something, "and soon to be one more" or something like that. It could have been that the baby was born?
However, I do agree that some of the episodes were pretty choppy and I was disappointed in the finale.
Let's do some math.
65 residents in Woodbury to start?http://walkingdead.w...odbury,_Georgia
(I quickly counted and got 21 plus "44 unnamed")
minus five killed in the first attacks by Team Prison, and old Mr. Coleman who died while Milton watched.
that leaves 59 people.
I think at least a few left in that initial panic, right? (maybe the doctor?)
Then, we had 8 killed by Merle, and minus one more for Merle, so minus 9 more, since Merle was an original resident there.
That gives Woodbury 50 people before this week's episode, not counting Sasha and Tyreese.
Didn't Andrew Lincoln say 26 people died in the finale? So, 25 are from Woodbury, including Milton. Andrea being #26.
That leaves 25 people.
The Governor, Martinez and the other guy (what was his name?) are three more. Karen is now with Team Prison, so one more.
then at least 20 people on the bus and you only have only one unaccounted for - and, that could be a person who snuck out after the first wave of attacks? (though, they should have accounted for him or her)
Please correct my math if I'm wrong, but Woodbury should be empty now, or have the Guv, Martinez and the other guy.
