I was worried that they were going to stay at the CDC for a while and attempt to explain everything, but I am glad they are all still in the dark. Now no one should even second guess killing a Zombie based on the pretty pictures of the brain activity shown.

I noticed the RV thing during that episode as well and just figured they went to town and got the parts, and maybe a hour or two had elapsed before laying Jim in the woods. It did not bug me but I remember thinking wtf just happened when the RV rolled out with the other cars...

Season 2 is a long way away, maybe we will get the farmhouse storyline leading up to the jail. But they have shown they are willing to deviate from the source material a lot so who the hell knows where we are headed. I just hope Michonne gets introduced next season, she kicks ass.

My favorite character by far so far has been Morgan from the first episode; I'm hoping that wasn't a one-and-done deal.

great interview with the comic creator (Kirkman) that does a good job of explaining some of the deviations from the comic (says that they're things that he wished he'd ironed out in the comics...things like "if you're THAT close to the CDC in Atlanta, who wouldn't at least have a thought about going there to check out whether there's any kind of cure that's been discovered" etc.

You know, like the door stops. It just sits there. Doesn't even hang. You can flick it, and it just makes the noise "brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrring".

Yeah, I'm glad they're not staying at the CDC longer, but I guess it does make sense why they paid a visit.

Can't wait for Season 2.

I'm happy that the whole CDC thing was just a blip on the radar screen and not a drawn out chunk of time.

It also lends to the feeling of desperation at the end of the episode. They thought they'd found a safe place for awhile after their camp has been attacked and hope that the doctor has some kind of idea for a cure...then a bleak picture is painted for them and they're given the option to just throw in the towel and die in an explosion or go back out to the uncertainty of the world as it now exists. It worked well in the context of leaving you feeling their desperation between the two seasons. But I would've been a bit unhappy if the season ended with them sitting in the CDC all snug and getting this big revelation that the whole thing can be cured with some kind of antidote.

I also don't think they could not have gone into season 2 without at least trying to explain some part of the Zombieapocalypse...

my favorite part of the finale was showing the insanity in the hospital flashback.

it also tied up some loose ends about HOW Rick wasn't eaten AND about how Shane truly believed he heard no heartbeat. So he really DIDN'T lie when he said Rick was dead. He believed it (although that means the only reason he blocked the door was to keep Rick's body from becoming zombie-dinner)

Even though I enjoyed the finale, I too am happy they didn't stick with the CDC story line for any longer than they did. Also glad that one chick decided to stick around and "opt out", she really added nothing to the show.

The wait for Season 2 is going to suck though.

what did the dr. whisper to rick? my guess is he was watching them all and listening in to their conv. through the comp system and blew the whistle on shane.

the consensus seems to be that his wife is pregnant, because the doc was doing blood work and rick would have beat the shit out of shane almost immediately.

I liked it. I don't know shit about the graphic novels, so I'm just purely going by what I see on my TV. I thought it was good. Shane sucks though. Get over it man, theres a fucking zombie apocalypse going on. I think there are more important things to be worried about.

shane's my favorite character behind grimes.

i don't give a fuck about the comics either, and from what i've seen it only hurts the enjoyment of the show.

You realize he's probably going to do something horrible, right? And most likely get a few of them killed?

Yes.

the drunken attempted rape soured him on me a bit, but the actor is great and i find the character interesting. i'm glad they didn't kill him off right away like they did in the comic.
