I missed it but read that they got chased off the farm by walkers and that Rick finally spilled Dr Jenner’s secret. That is, everybody becomes a walker when they die.

Sure — Jerry Garcia really rocked the house with his sort of rockabilly sensibilities.

He died young but what is amazing how many made it out of that era to be alive today.

Yup, loved the last couple episodes including the finale.

First half of the season was a bit slow, but the second half was really good. Will be interesting to see who they get to play Michonne in S3.

What was that at the very end? I turned away but it looked like it panned up to show a walled city in the distance? Was I just seeing things?

I kinda like the Grateful Dead music. Their songs weren’t all that political either. You got your money’s worth at their concerts—they played for long time periods and sets.

Five minutes after the dialogue about them sticking together, the final shot pans up and out to that maximum security prison out in the distance. Keeping those Season Three spoilers close to the vest, aren't they. LOL!

That’s right. That explains why Sean got up after Rick stabbed him.

I’m a fan, but we had to cut our cable bill, so I don’t get it anymore. I just watch the recaps and bonus segments of Talking Dead.

I tried to download it off iTunes, but for some reason, when I sign up, I get no verification by email or anything that I’m actually signed up. Do they take a while to send it? I mean, it’s been a couple days now. (Yes, I checked my Junk/Spam controls).

Any idea what that thing was in the woods with the armless zombies chained up? That was just freakin weird!
I didn’t get to see the last few minutes but it seems like Rick is losing it.

That city in the background at the very end had barbed wire fencing around it. It looked like a prison of some sorts with guard towers. Maybe thats where the group will live next season? Hopefully if they do there will be more people introduced into the show :)

Thanks for the link! Definitely looking forward to S3, especially if the episodes are as good as the last few this season.

They were cool, no question.

But as a young adolescent I could never figure out why their music was so hillbilly when their name was so hard-rock-core.

I am pretty sure I would fall asleep at one of their concerts — even without the help ‘o her...

That is a new character called Michonne. From what I understand her zombie pets are her old boyfriend and his best friend. She hacked their arms and jaws off so that they can’t attack her. Apparently she uses them to kind of camouflage herself from the other zombies.

Good question. Maybe Sean did more than break his neck.

Who’s the hooded critter that saved Andrea at the end. And those two looked like armless Walkers.

That’s creepy.

I don’t know how any of the living can work up an apetite after all the gore.

These were new episodes with the S2 finale tonight. This season was broken into two halves. The first half was somewhat slow, the second half really picked up and ended well. Sounds like S3 is going to be more action packed which I will be glad to see. Character development is important, but the show has sometimes gotten bogged down in it in the past.

It is probably not the case that everybody is going to become a zombie when they die.
For scientific reality on the show: it is probably the case that the virus when it enters through a small cut or eyes,etc remains subdued or dormant in healthy human beings unless the load is high from an injury or bite wound.

Now it could be the case, that the virus can be caught from human contact through touching and door knobs and enter through rubbing the nose, scratching the eyes, in which case this is probably the waiting and dormant/subdued version. This might also be the case when killing zombies, splattering blood and inhaling those particles etc.

Some people will be immune , some will have stronger or weaker immunities to the more subdued version.

Contract negotiations were rough this season.

lol

I didn’t watch Season 1 until it was over and I decided to watch it via Netflix.

Now, I DVR it each Sunday night.

I didn’t realize that tonight’s episode is the season finale.

We cut our satellite, but I get it through Amazon instant video for 1.99 an episode (cheaper yet if you’re in Amazon Prime or order the whole season). It comes out on Amazon the next day.

He did reanimate. He attacked Glen and Darryl. After they killed him they examined him and saw he had no bites, only a broken neck.
