Still annoys me that some of these people have survived this long with out apparently a clue. Those 2 young boys as the story opened last night staring at a walker like they had never seen one before. For gosh sakes just run away, you can fast walk and these goons aren't going to catch you. The youngest one did a few more things as the how progressed. We still have Morgan (and others) standing in place to kill the walkers when they could easily evade them and not risk death.

Fair points Irwin and the actions of the 2 boys was the weakest part of the show. At this point EVERY survivor is going to be savvy to the dead. At minimum both boys would have been carrying long knives.

I guess I've just gotten used to it and for me it's just background noise. To be honest both the WD & FTWD have a history of much worse lapses so if this is the worst of the season I can dig it!

I was looking forward to the story being one of a "road movie" with the group heading cross country to Virginia, kind of a travelogue with zombies. I guess that isn't going to happen. I do like the emphasis on beer as a symbol of civilization and an "aqua vitae". Maybe the denim gang will embrace our group if their beer sours.

I always thought a road movie story line would be great. I wonder if it's just an issue with budget & complexity? It's easier to shoot in one place?

I thought last nights episode was solid. There was only one truly cringe worthy moment and that was when the injured lady went outside and tried to fight the dead rather then immediately run back inside when she saw them.

It was also nice to see one of my favorite FTWD characters make a return.

So far they're doing a nice job of setting up a mystery. Hopefully when they finally reveal it we won't be disappointed. Also the writers must have watched Chernobyl.

Was i distracted by something? Was I not paying attention? Please tell me someone, what the heck were they doing in an airplane? Who was in it? What did they hope to accomplish? I hate to differ from the majority on this thread but, so far, this season makes no sense to me.

The only thing I found compelling was the nuclear meltdown and the young women's effort to dispose of the radiological walking corpses.

So, I guess no one else has figured out what the deal was with the plane either.

I think one of the characters babbled something about the plane allowed them to get places to help people a lot faster.

The truth is though that like the WD, the writers are always looking for new ways to put the lead characters in jeopardy and to show different ways to kill zombies. This is the first time we've had a plane crash! It saved those boys, got one of the main characters hurt, set up some serious Zombie action and placed most of the cast far away from their last location.

In a word; nonsensical.

So do we get Alís backstory? Because her obsession with the van and tapes is getting old.

Iím 7 episodes behind you all.

Made little sense but quite a fun episode. I got a kick out of the Western theme park theme. It was also nice to see cap and ball revolvers used. As I said before black powder is easy to make and lead would be plentiful so, it is only natural, that the survivors would eventually gravitate towards the use of muzzleloaders and black powder revolvers.

The Dwight story line makes little sense. If Sherri wants to be found, why does she keep moving and how did they wander so far from Virginia?

I do like the Dwight character though. Join up with John for a Butch Cassidy and Sundance team.

I've seen a lot of stupid @#%^ watching twd/ftwd but the bullet and axe thing might top them all.

I agree. I have seen the stunt done in real life with a carefully mounted ax and carefully aligned targets, but the way they set it up was just silly. I chalked it up to a tongue in cheek, over the top joke.

Dumb but fun episode. As a kid I use to love to go to those imitation western theme parks! The background music in the episode was also quite good. Surprised they didn't have a zombie that looked like Clint Eastwood.

The Ax shot was definitely jumping the shark but given how often this series has done it I don't even mind any more.

What did others think about the big "reveal" at the end? Was it a surprise or did it let you down? I kind of had it figured out so it didn't surprise me. I was surprised by Dwight turning up though.

I knew the kids were into something and not being straight and it gave it away when you heard them on the radio. Now the reason for it I am not sure of.

Dwight was a total surprise. I was like this is stupid as why would Dwight be shooting at them,,, but then it made more sense later when he said he recognized the car but then Dwight goes and does something stupid.

I was getting pissed as to why the were wasting so many bullets..... just cover yourself with zombie guts and get out of the situation. I know Dwight knows about that..... and I am sure the other two know about it as well.

Excellent episode last night. Of course any story that features Danial is going to be interesting.

I also have to hand it to the writers as they came up with a very gruesome way to kill zombies - and they didn't shy away from explicitly showing us!

It's the Walking Dead Franchise so if it doesn't have inexplicably dumb stuff driving the narrative we wouldn't recognize the show. It seems to me even if bridges are out they could have easily drove to where Morgan & company are in the time they've been dicking around trying to steal a plane from Danial!
