    In cowboy movies, that did happen. People would wind up being shot in the Bible or the pocket watch and survive.

    I hope he did get shot in the I LOVE YOU. Very romantic. :)

    He sure did spin around violently, though, and I think our guns and ammo are more deadly. It would be tough for the little box to absorb much of that force....

    I hated that he got shot, too. I was a wreck.

    Naomi admitted she kept Rose's illness a secret from her group because she was afraid they'd throw them out. She also admitted to putting Rose in the back room where nobody would find her until she returned with medicine...but she returned too late.

    Rose likely died and turned during the night, and bit most of the group while they slept. They were in a building they believed was secure and likely thought there was no need for sentries, or the sentries fell asleep and were among the first bit. By the time others woke to the screams, it was too late to fight back or escape.

    They talked about that on TD and concluded that it only matters that she thinks she caused all of their deaths.

    On talking dead it was said that Naomi DIDN'T know what went down but truly believed it was her doing, she accepted that and nothing would take her away from that thought

    Yes, it happens a lot in Westerns ( I hope John comments on that) and history is full of examples of bullets being stopped by things such as Bibles, envelopes filled with letters, etc.

    Yes, modern guns and ammo are more deadly than a century before. I doubt a small metal box filled with small modern blocks could stop a bullet from an assault rifle at close range, but this is a show about zombies, so just go with it. ;)

    Yeah at this point as far as they have migrated and as much time has passed, I’d find it a real stretch for Salazar to reappear. o_O

    yeah that's what they want us to buy. Which makes about as much sense as a tortoise elopement lol. People tend to wake up and scream when they are bitten. Especially by a little girl who wouldn't have the size or power to accidentally snuff out any noise. I guess each bite victim decided to quietly read a romance novel after they were bitten :p. And walkers tend not to bite and move on to the next person. They bite and keep eating the same person [which apparently the victims were happy to silently comply with] This is a huge stretch of logic, but its what we've got to deal with.

    Right lol. Their big plan seemed somewhat silly to begin with, but then when they saw them coming in the distance, no one hid? Like "oh, here comes the huge convoy!! There in the distance! Wave everybody!! Hellloooooo!!" lol

    One girl doesn't have to bite everyone...
    Rose may have only bit one or two, maybe three...
    If the biting was severe enough they died and then turned...
    Now things snowball fast.

    It continues to bother me that they drive with headlights on at night, and how they just roll right up to wherever they're going... That is highly dangerous, not only should they be driving stealthy so forget the light show but also park a ways out from your destination because not only is an engine LOUD... But scope out the area from a safe distance first, like with binoculars, make sure it's relatively safe to go in.

    Yes, and those bite victims had to stay nice and silent. Reading their romance novels. Unless maybe they all happened to get bit on their tongues. :rolleyes:

    I’m thinking there’s more to the story of what went down at FEMA...stuff we don’t know yet. Either Naomi lied about it or she has herself convinced that’s what happened.

    Of course nobody expects the dead to stay realisticaly dead in a show about zombies, but yeah, once ground rules are established, we expect a nice level of realism as a sign of respect to our intellects. The show would only gain in interest if the characters made more basic strategically-sound decisions.

    If you don't expect realism from your zombie show, then you'll be fine with them finding flying boots next episode, and Nick coming back riding a unicorn.

    About approaching a location with headlights on, it has to be forgiven. It would be boring if they show they drove up to a nearby higher elevation point to scan the area with binoculars each time before showing them approach a location.
