And how did they not hear the gun battle that wiped out the campers?Asteriktos said:Yeah, I've been anticipating how that'll go as well (with Daryl).
Another thing in the episode tonight though. The beer thing. It has to have been at least 13-15 months since the zombie apocalypse started.* And the beer is still good? Does beer last that long on the shelf? I guess it's something I wonder about more generally though: what is the food situation? Everyone always seems to gravitate towards these roving bands. Even Hershel and others in the prison have pressed to hit the road at various points. I don't understand this. The two most important things that will make survival possible are water and food. Sure raiding stuff will be ok in the short term, but whatever food is around is going to run out or spoil within a couple years. After that you better be able to grow some more, which means having land to do it on and having some type of protection of it. Obviously the walls at the prison aren't great right now, but that's a problem that can be worked on.
*If memory serves season one could be compressed into a very short time, maybe even a couple weeks; with season two it's hard to tell, but let's be conservative and say a month (it was at least long enough that the weather had changed and things had started to get cold outside); between season 2 and 3 enough time passed for Lori to go through almost an entire pregnancy; season 3 is again hard to tell, but for now let's say a month; between seasons 3 and 4 we again aren't sure, but it was at least a few months, and I believe a cast member said on Talking Dead that it was probably a little longer than that.
The episode was really well directed except for that error IMHO... I'm thinking Emmy.
