I'm hoping it's either the Wolves or father Gabriel as I dislike both and would enjoy a season where they got wasted. My concern is that the teenage boy (Ron) did it out of spite. That would set up a nasty fight between his mother (the lady Rick fancies) and Rick since if the kid did it he would have to face exile or execution.
Loved last night's episode. The black and white flashbacks were a nice touch.
As for the semi horn at the end, popular guess is it's the wolves, but you never know. I personally think Enid has something to do with it as there is something off about her. I'm thinking she might have something to do with the wolves.
The episode tried really hard to suggest it was Ron and The Talking Dead even had Ron as a choice on their poll question which was, who was sounding the horn at Alexandria. I don't think it was him. He's mad at Rick, but not crazy to where he would endanger the whole community. The wolves have access to trucks at the cannery where they were trapping walkers, I'm really thinking it's them. Or, it is an alert from someone inside the camp to signal an attack. It looked like some people were hiding inside houses as if they were running/hiding from someone.
Also, the trailer we have seen since July was showing Darryl being held by what I thought was the wolves, this could be where they capture him as it is early in the season in which it happens.
Im not into comics at all, but has anyone read them? How closely does the show follow them?
Carl's interaction with Carol made it seem like it was the zombies, but then the blonde and her son hiding in the closet kinda made it seem like it was other people as zombies can't open doors. I have so many moments where I hate Carl. I have times where I want to like him, but then he does something to change my mind. Watching the preview makes me hope he is able to fend off whatever the threat is, but then he'll probably do something to screw it up.
I read them. Early on the series, they didn't follow them as closely as they do now. Some of the timing of events happen at different times in the comic vs the series. There are other variations like what happens to certain characters. A few examples: In the series, the governor cut Herschel's head off, in the comic, it was Tyreese. In the series, it was Bob who had his leg cut off and eaten by the hunters, in the comic, it was Dale. In the series, Herchel was bit and lost a leg, in the comic it was Dale. Lori dies during her c section in the series, she was killed by one of the governors people in the comic, simultaneously killing Judith.
Some events happen identically, such as the confrontation with the claim gang Darryl joined (only exception is that Abraham was with Rick in the comic). They tried to rape Carl and Rick bit the neck of one of them and mutilated another with his knife. Other events happen very similar with a couple change ups. The final scene of season 5, it was Pete who killed but in the comic is was Reg who was Douglas Monroe's wife, in the series it was Deanna's husband who was killed. In both instances, the surviving spouse told Rick, to do it, meaning kill Pete. Very similar, but they often change a name or reverse a role.
Some characters were never in the comic like Darryl, Bob and Sasha. In the comic, Carol has long been gone, she's still alive in the series but Andrea is long gone in the series but still alive in the comic.
It is my expectation that they will follow the comics more closely from here on out as they have trended in that direction the last couple of seasons.
to answer the question from Talking Dead, I'd want to be like Morgan, but understand I'd need to be more like Rick in that world.
Serious question, other then having his insane "kung fu" skills why would you want to be like "Morgan"? In the world of the Walking Dead, Rick is a far more righteous person then Morgan. In fact Morgan's practice of the philosophy that all life is precious is immoral in that world.
The Governor and the Terminus people were flat out evil but IMO Morgan is worse then they were because his evil (and to be clear his actions in last nights episode were evil) is cloaked in self righteousness. The people around him are going to take a long time to figure out that he's a cancer in their midst.
I'm wondering if the writers on the show actually intended for Morgan to be "polarizing" in that his actions would be understood or supported by a large number of viewers? For the life of me I can't believe anyone watching the show would have a shred of respect for the man after last nights episode.
I wouldn't agree at all that Morgan is immoral, or evil.
That doesn't mean he's going about it the necessary way, but in no way can you call him evil.
Morgan's stance reminds me of one of the best lines of The Dark Knight. "You thought we could be decent men in an indecent time. But you were wrong. The world is cruel, and the only morality in a cruel world is chance."
