The Walking Dead is getting tedious and repetitive. Seek refuge. Splatter heads. Gain refuge. Refuge overrun by zombies. Splatter heads. Escape. Splatter heads. Find new refuge. Find other survivors. Survivors join group. Rinse. Repeat. The only difference this season is that the group has broken into smaller separated groups to add a little more character development.

They aren’t the same ones who took Beth, are they?

Not sure yet. Somebody was taking care of the funeral home. Not sure if it’s Joe and his gang or not, though.

I’m still liking it-—a LOT.

Perhaps soon zombie eating aliens from another galaxy will show up to relieve your tedium.

He’s the same guy that Darryl joined up with in the last episode, one of the Hunters most likely. Darryl might be able to fit in with that group but will not agree with their practices whatsoever. The only real clue we have about who took Beth is the cross on the back window of the car - possibly The Saviors?

Yes, it appears to be the same gang that Daryl is now with at the end of last night’s episode.

I wonder if it might be Gabriel from the comics? Or it could be the Hunters who kidnapped Beth.

And...it looks like Daryl was in the house at the same time. The group that found him on the road included a fat, balding guy who seems to be the guy that Rick kills in the bathroom.

Joe’s wolf pack didnt seem likely to clean up after themselves.

The Saviors have Sanctuary, the advertised safe haven on the maps where Carol and the kids are going, and had the radio broadcast.

Very observant! I couldn’t tell if that was the same bald guy, but bandanna boy ... the one that was killed in front of Rick while he was hiding under the bed ... is definitely there when Joe finds Darryl.

These jumps in the time line get confusing.

Oops ... I guess I should have read the comics.com article first. Says that bandanna boy was merely choked until he passed out.

So ... this could be after they encountered Rick. I went back and checked the episode ‘Claimed’ and the guy Rick killed is not in the scene with Daryl. He had short hair and no beard.

Shades of “Lost”. Irritated the crap out me in that series. So far, the WD hasn’t abused it.

hmmmm...now I need to back again and compare both episodes. It looked to me like they were the same person (heavy set, balding). In the group surrounding Daryl, I'm looking at the guy in the 6:00 position (mostly with his back turned so we strategically can't get a good look at his face!).

How does that work? Was Sunday's episode's timeline earlier than the "Rick under the bed" episode?

"And...it looks like Daryl was in the house at the same time. The group that found him on the road included a fat, balding guy who seems to be the guy that Rick kills in the bathroom."

I haven't rewound the DVR to check it out personally, but that seems to be the case. I read a Walking Dead forum, and posters there noticed him, too.

I'm dying here....if Daryl was in that house at the same time as Rick, I can't stand it. I want the group back together.

My husband said, "Maybe Daryl wasn't in the house....he could have given them the slip, or he could have been killed." I hollered, "DON'T SAY THAT!" LOL

The timelines have not been chronological for the various character situations. We saw the dead bunnies BEFORE we saw Lizzie kill them. We saw the remains of the track-side zombie fest BEFORE we saw Beth and Daryl stumble on it. It's an interesting puzzle for viewers to piece together.

I enjoy rewatching previous seasons during AMC's marathons. It's interesting to see how many clues the writers give us as to what will happen next. Now I know to look for them - part of the fun of watching!

Look closely at the boots in the bedroom scene.......The guy who choked the guy in the bedroom had light brown work boots on I think.......

Bandana boy wasn’t choked to death, only unconscious. Nobody would kill somebody and then lay down to take a nap when the body could turn at any moment.

So we can’t be sure about the timeline based on Bandana boy. Toilet guy is the only one we are sure was killed in the Rick episode, so without better identification of him, we can’t be sure of the timeline.

But it’s possible that Daryl was with the gang when Rick was hiding under the bed because they are jumping around from group to group showing what happens from prison fall to Terminus.

I read that all of season four spans only a week of time.

Yes ... I corrected myself in another post.

All that time jumping is making my head spin. But I don't think Daryl was with them at the house ... the guy that Rick killed at the house doesn't appear to be with the gang when they find Daryl.

Gabriel is possible as well. Whoever took Beth is likely the one who kept that clean funeral home trap which was sprung to flush her out where she could be taken. In fact there was probably a spy hidden in the funeral home and when her beauty was seen and her singing/piano playing were heard she became irresistible to her kidnappers.

Yes, the funeral home had to be a trap. Kept nice and clean. Food in the cabinets. It seems designed to have people come in and let their guard down.

In the episode before last, Rick was hiding by the porch and Joe was sitting on the rail. You could hear mumbling inside the house about finding a woman’s shirt and that she was probably coming back. A fight begins and Joe runs inside, allowing Rick to get away unseen.

Maybe Darryl is in the house and realizes that it’s Michonne’s shirt and the danger she is in and starts the fight??

I think the fight inside the house is toilet guy’s zombie attacking either the guy on the bed or unconscious bandana boy on the floor. Rick purposefully opened the bathroom door for exactly that reason.

That could potentially reduce the gang numbers enough for Daryl to finish off the rest or to escape out the back door and join up with Rick and Michonne and go rescue Beth.

I think that would make an epic episode

Im curious why the bodies in the funeral parlor never resurected or showed decay?

From what I remember, they showed one walker who had makeup on one side of his face/head — the other side looked like he had been a walker, because it looked pretty decayed. Not sure why they are doing this, though.
