Skip to comments.The Walking Dead Discussion Thread: Season 4 Episode 14 [SPOILER warning]
Posted on 03/16/2014 1:43:07 PM PDT by ConjunctionJunction
So what do you think is waiting for us at the Terminus?
Is it the real Governor of Georgia’s mansion? High-gated and hardened with aircraft and artillery?
Speculation upthread, it’s in Macon.
If Rick was trying to help her, why didn’t he just tell her they both
would keep it to themselves. After all Rick killed Shane to protect himself.
Carol killed two to protect the group.
I think you’re right. There’s no reason for him to hang around because he wants to find his friends.
I bet that was funny.
Reminds me of years ago, when a lot of music artist got together to do
one of the “We are the World” records. Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings
were there to participate until Stevie Wonder wanted to do a verse in
Swahili, an African language. An article written about the recording session
mentioned that when Nelson and Jennings heard about Wonder’s idea
of doing a verse in Swahili, they both promptly left the recording session,
never to return,
Daryl actually trapped Jim’s group, insinuated himself into it to take them all out and then get back to finding everybody else. He sat himself down in the road all ‘boo hoo’ to attract them to him.
Is it the real Governor of Georgias mansion? High-gated and hardened with aircraft and artillery?"
I've seen speculation that it's going to be VERY bad, indeed. A trap, of sorts.
Nooooooooooo.... I can’t take anymore. I’ll just have to watch the discussion thread for what happened.
No, you have to watch, LOL! We need to see our peeps’ reunion!
I’m heading off to bed now....will check the thread tomorrow. Night, y’all.
or perhaps LIZZIE BORDEN =)
The way this is going. We should have an “All You Can Eat Buffet” =)
Add me please.
"I think Carol needs to go to Washington and show em all the flowers..."
Damn, that shit is cold
What an intense episode. Wow. On a side note, does anyone think the fire they saw was the house that Daryl and Beth burned down?
Yes, that certainly came to mind and all the fragmented survivors seem to be in the same general area.
It should be noted that Lizzie was just about to kill Judith until Carol said that she couldn’t even walk yet.....
What a magnificent episode!!
This is what makes, and keeps, this show popular, IMHO-the viewer has NO IDEA what’s coming next, unless you’ve read the comics, which I have not done..I bet after this episode, sales of the comix will go through the roof.
I like to think that if I were in a similar situation, I would have done what Carol did-but it’s sure hard to wrap my head around that thought!!
Just damn. Just damn.
Glutton for punishment, I guess. Absorbing a little "bullying" is a good thing from time to time- helps keep the skin thick!
Wow! That is cold!
I have read the comics, and the writers for the TV show like to change things up all the time to keep us guessing!
Yes, I think the crispy walkers had probably been burned by Daryl and Beth’s fire. Daryl and Beth were really close to Tyreese and the kids on the first day, so I don’t think they were all that far apart.
Pretty cool map! Those are filming locations, though, aren’t they? I would think that some of the fictional locations would be closer together. Also, it kind of looks like most of the characters are heading towards Terminus, which appears to be Macon, so they should be heading east & south.
Drove cross country with wife and kids last summer. Made a stop out of Senoia. Very cool to see the real town, along with the WD set pieces (The City Hall is a facade, the barrier busses are parked in a nearby lot). Ate in a nice cafe that was used for a scene.
She deserves an award for quick thinking on her feet!
“Look at the flowers Lizzie, just look at the flowers”
The way Carol kept repeating herself you would think that at some point Lizzie would think, “Why does she keep telling me to look at the damn flowers?”.
I think in real life, separate from TWD, that episode had to have an impact on Tyreese and Carol........The only thing I can think of that came close to what was done was when Ol' Yeller had to be killed.....
I didn’t realize how much Lizzie was out to lunch. Rationality wasn’t her strong suit. I was wondering if and how the girls were going to be written out. Never expected that scenario.
“I didnt realize how much Lizzie was out to lunch. Rationality wasnt her strong suit. I was wondering if and how the girls were going to be written out. Never expected that scenario.”
I think Lizzie would have been more likely to feed herself to the Z’s or kill herself to make her point rather than kill her sister. But crazy is by definition unpredictable. It was pretty shocking, like the Red wedding on Game of Thrones.
Although not a TV Show, I recall Bruce Willis character in the movie
“Looper” killing a child thinking that child was the “rainmaker”.
LOL...best laugh of the day, post of the night!
I agree. I think Melissa McBride even said something to that effect on Talking Dead last night. "Hard" is a word that doesn't even begin to describe it.
You know, upthread I said Carol was tough, but she isn't a robot. She does what she believes has to be done, but look at what she's been through. She not only lost her own daughter, she saw one of her "adopted" daughters murdered in cold blood, and shot the other one in the head. I wonder if she can bear all of this without crumbling.
The night before, when we saw them gathered safe in the farmhouse, a kerosene lamp on the table, Tyreese asleep in the chair, Mika playing with her new doll on the floor, talk about maybe staying there for the duration (even tho we know that wouldn't happen) that was the closest they had come to safety and normalcy since the apocalypse.
Then the final scene when Carol and Tyreese were walking away was absolutely heart wrenching........
And towards the beginning of the episode when they said they could live there. Towards the end of the episode they said they couldn’t live there after what had happened.
NBC Nightly News CBS Evening News ABC World News etc.
My take of the scene were she pushes the pistol across the table ,she didn't want to shoot herself.
One of the most poignant scenes was when Tyreese looked around and said in a marveling tone, “I’m in a living room.”
I need to call my sister-in-law and find out if she and her husband ever got caught up to this season. They thought TWD was some silly horror show, but they happened to see an episode, got hooked, and went on a binge of watching seasons 1-3. They say it’s the best show they’ve ever watched....when they see last night’s ep, they’ll appreciate it.
Yeah, it's like they said on Talking Dead, if Carol had confessed to Tyreese when they were out walking, as she ALMOST did, he would have reacted differently. Yvette Nicole Brown said she was yelling, "Don't do it, girl! Don't do it!" LOL
Do you think she was resigned to it either way? I got the impression she wouldn't have protested if Tyreese decided to kill her.
I think she gave up all hope of her humanity and put her life on the table by enabling Tyreese to be her judge, jury and executioner.........
My take of Tyreese standing at the window,he was in on the execution .
I agree; he understood there was no other way.
My sons step-kids got hooked a couple months ago and had to buy the series tapes.
Okay. I’m FINALLY getting around to watching this one. I’ll comment as I watch:
Excellent opening. Is Beth playing tag with a walker?!?!
Oh, good LORD! Lizzy’s calling Carol, “Ma’am?!”
Carol: “She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body.” ——UH-OH!!
Holy CRAP! The look that Mica got from Lizzie when Mica said, “You’re not even grossed out by Dead Rabbits!”
(I guess we now know who was dissecting the vermin at the prison)
Lizzie: “Sometimes we HAVE to kill them. I know that. But, sometimes we don’t.” Straight from Hershell’s lips when he and Carl were out looking for plants at the prison.
(And, I’m looking at Mica’s handgun, trying to guess what kind it is. I am SUCH a gun nut!!)
Come ON, MICA!! SHOOT it in the HEAD!!
O-o-o-okay? “Look at the flowers, Lizzie?! Yup. She’s going into Crazytown...
“Priselda Gunderson??” Are you nuts, Mica? Name that doll something a bit more casual. Like, say, “Adreanna Botswannah Hugginsworth?”
Holy CRAP!! That was LIZZIE playing tag with that walker?!
(And, at 17:09 in this episode, the look on Carol’s face says, “I have created a MONSTER!”
AWWWWWW! Mica looks so CUTE leveling that rifle on their dinner!
“We can stay. We can live here.” Yeah..
“Coach says this now, but when he finds out that Carol exterminated his love interest...
(I call him, “Coach,” because he played the character of, “Coach,” in the Left 4 Dead 2 videogame)
Holy CARP! It’s LIZZIE feeding the walkers! I’ll bet she votes for Obummer, too!
Oh, come ON, LIZZIE!! Throw yourself on those smoldering walkers coming after you!
Nice Walker Extermination scene there!
Carol: “Ya know? We have A LOT of pecans here.” Yeah! Because Mica didn’t shoot that FREAKIN’ DEER!!
DAMN! Lizzie draws faster on Carol and Tyreese that I could have!
(Someone please correct me if I’m wrong, but is Lizzie holding Carol and Tyreese with a Beretta PX4 Storm?)
Carol? You have created a monster...
NO!! MICA!!! I’m going to miss her!
Yup! Lizzie was feeding the walkers at the prison fence. I KNEW it!!
Carol: “Just look at the flowers, Lizzie......BANG!”
Carol created that monster. Carol had to destroy it.
again....HOLY CARP!! Carol fessed up about Karen and David!!
Tyreese is a bigger man. He is AWESOME!
Carol is forgiven.
Pretty good episode, but they need to ramp it up a bit more.
You pretending you’re the host of TTD?........LOL!
So I just watched the last 2 episodes back to back.
Tyreese was able to forgive her after seeing her strength of character, conviction and sense of justice.
I have loads of respect for Tyreese!
Also..UGH! Horrible series of events.
Back to Daryl. He proved himself a badass and was allowed to join the sociopath group. I believe he will do some horrible things but will eventually come back from the abyss. He saw in Beth that there are genuinely good people in the world and he wants to be one despite his poor upbringing.
Look forward to the last 2 episodes and dread the inevitable cliff hanger and long interval with no show.
At least I can watch Falling Skies soon.
