    The zombie in 28 days later were a ton more aggressive. The ones in this show are not so bad as long as you're armed, not outnumbered and not ambushed. I would imagine armor would be more likely to slow you down.

    The problem with Michonne is all her scowling. You can exude kick assness without all the silent scowling.

    The problem with Michonne is 2 fold:

    All her Mr T scowling gets very very annoying, very fast.

    Secondly, her complete inability to talk and explain anything to Andrea about her misgivings about Woodbury.

    It wouldn’t be hard to have her say “I think the Governor is a bad man and just wants us here as we are women he can have sex with. He’s doing lots of bad things and lying about it to the civilians here – there were tons of bullet holes in the army vehicles – I think he shot all the army guys so he could have their weapons and supplies. Today I saw him with a 6 year old girl in his room – putting her into a strait jacket and putting a hood over her head as he struggled with her. Is he molesting children too from his position of power? Lots of bad shit is happening below the surface here, you know how men in power can abuse it and the women and children around them”

    Wait, Michonne saw the daughter? That completely flew over my head.

    She saw the name and just repeated it given it's obvious significance in the notebook. I don't think she knew it was his chained up zombie daughter.

    Question, the notebook that should found...what is the significance of all the dash marks after his daughters name? All the people that were infected afterwards?

    No, pretty sure that's a sign he lost his mind. Think John Doe from Se7en.

    To be honest, and I may have been a spazz here - but I thought it was just him shading in the lines, in a "meat, bone, blood" American Psycho/ The Shining type madness.

    in the novel, it's his failure to protect Penny (his niece, actually) that triggers his breakdown, at which point he assumes the identity of his dead brother, Philip.

    Interesting, so he's keeping the girl alive to find a cure? And using the people of the town as rats?

    Don't really care about the scowling. Just figured shes not gonna pretend to be something shes not.

    Either way I agree with the rest. She acts way too mysterious.

    They really are makind up for last season´s "peacefulness". Rick´s gone crazy, andrea is back to being a dumb blonde chick... But I do agree that it´d be pretty easy for michonne to just spit out all the weirdness going around in that place instead of just saying "let´s go!".

    Has anyone read Zone One by Colson Whitehead? The humans in that book are tasked with clearing zombies out of NYC. They wear kevlar mesh armor and full-face masks and helmets. That made the most sense to me. If I could find something like that I'd wear it 24/7.
