how the eff did I not connect these dots??!!
I didn't either, I thought it was a different barrel of water. Patrick was still on the floor, and he fell down right next to the barrel he coughed in. So, the water that Karen got ws from a different barrel, I think.
That bothered me too about Karen, she hears a slight noise in the bathroom but lays down and poof, she's out like a light. Since she had investigated the noise, you would think that she still had adrenaline flowing.
I really think that it was more than just letting herself feel emotions for a baby. The way she reacted when Judith first started crying was if it had triggered a bad memory for her.
If anything, I got the impression it was the feel
of the soft baby skin against her face that really pushed her over the edge. And that argues for her rememebring something she had and lost, and probably in the ZA, not before. My kids are older now, but I think if I picked up someone else's baby and put it against my face, all those emotions of having a child again could come rushing back.
Really enjoyed the episode, and watching last week's episode right before really did help with the continuity. A couple of things:
1) To deal with the walkers on the fence, why could they just have spread out along the fence and made noise to attract them away from the weak spot. Surely a full-size, warm-blooded human making noise and being close would be more of a stimulus than a few dead, cold rats on the ground. I thought that was pretty silly, and something you should easily have thought of in the heat of the moment (as opposed to standing under
the fence that looks like it's about to come down on you). Heck, just pick up the rats and spread them out, if that's what they're really focusing on.
2) At least they gave us some indication that there are watches and guards on duty, perimeters being checked, etc.
3) Patrick walking through the cell block at night, breathing like a walker ... noshing noisily on innards for a couple of hours ... I understand the plot necessity, but again, it wasn't too believable.
4) Will Rick put his sheriff's shirt back on now?
That's enough for now. Oh, and I did I win the over/under for zombie kills? Need to find that thread again.
