There is the chance that it was ringing, I saw that premise in an old Twilight Zone episode once. I guess I just assume all phone companies went out and nothing was operational anymore, but that is just me assuming.

It was an old-school landline, so while Rick is DEFINITELY losing his mind, the phone might actually have been ringing.

Argh! I taped the show and it is not taping long enough...I never heard the phone! Need to correct that.

Yager, you might hedge your bet and be 99% positive!!

I'm ambivalent about the women and their various peccadilloes.

I feel like they have all been true to their "pre-appocolypse" characters which would make sense. As humans we just don't change that easily. Yes, I kinda hate them...but I can't blame them.

In between dodging zombies, I feel like I would be a LOT more whiny about the loss of modern conveniences!! I would cry buckets of tears over the loss of coffee and hot showers. Dealing with that tragedy might just do me in before any zombie!!

p.s And I'm just waiting to hear some smart comment about the word "peccadilloes"....Bring it...

I'm surprised any of the phones still work after all the time that has passed. Their batteries would surely be drained by now and landlines...well, I doubt Ma Bell is still up and running (sorry, don't remember if the recap said what kind of phone it was).

They're going to have to introduce some new women to the show since they are killing off the originals (which is pretty much a good thing, none of them were worth a damn).

Last time I assumed someone was dead, he wound up letting a bunch of zombies into the prison to munch our friends. I won't fall into that trap. BUT... how cool would it be to see a Carol zombie come shambling around the corner. How would the group react?
Daryl holding the baby, feeding it from a bottle? Yea.. I could hear the collective dreamy sighs from millions of women across the globe.
Are we to assume that Andrea had now taken the position of "annoyingly stupid woman we want to strangle".
The ringing phone at the end? Could it be Carol, calling from another part of the prison, begging for help. Or are there other prisoners still to be found?

I read that moment more as, "She's my mom...(so I should be the one to do it.)"

Carl may have had to grow up too fast in many ways, but he's still just a little boy in others. Boys get goo-goo eyes for pretty blonde girls. His crush on Beth seems pretty harmless at this point, and maybe actually helpful in the big picture of his psychosocial development (remember when he was being a butt to Lori and Beth said he couldn't talk to her like that because she's his mother, and he shut right up?)

Well.. Carl did ask Maggie to do it, since it would be so hard for him... But she bailed.

Love the analysis of Lori. Agree she was a flake and I'm not too sad to see her go.

Rick was conflicted, but I think with this last episode, he stepped into the heart of darkness and we will see a side that is more brutal and much less hesitant with making hard decisions.

As a child, Carl's mores are not set in stone and he is one big bag of repressed emotions now. Curious to see when/if he will break down and cry at some point.

Anyone else being made uncomfortable and questioning the stolen glances between Beth and Carl?

Rick is a good guy at heart which is why it was so hard for him to turn into the person he thought the group needed to survive. About Lori...the wench deserved it. I think Rick forgave her for sleeping with Shane...after all, she legitimately thought he was dead. He might not have liked it, but he understood it. I think what tipped things was when she went all Lady Macbeth...Shane is evil, you have to kill him, he's going to kill you and take me & Carl...and then did a complete 180...you did WHAT? You killed him? How could you? and pulled away from Rick in righteous indignation. Stupid...woman.

I didn't realize it was Carl who shot Lori though. I'd have though one of the adults would have done it. That's got to have traumatized the kid even more than he is already. Thinking about what kind of person he's going to grow up to be is pretty scary.

If anyone had the right to a breakdown it is Carl. This boy has killed the man who acted as his father when Rick was missing (Shane) and now he had to kill his Mother on top of things. Carl has held it together better than Rick. Carl is coming up to bat to try and be a good brother to his new baby sister even trying to come up with a name for her and that was rough on him.

Rick's falling apart is from mostly guilt as he had been punishing Lori for her not being a good wife and sticking by him. I'll be glad when he gets over this, too.

I do hope that Carol will find her way out of the prison tombs and not be crazy or something.
I wanted to see her and Daryl form a bond.

Daryl is no way like Merle in the way he has stepped in protecting the baby and when he fed that baby her bottle I choked. While Rick was in a complete state of shock, Daryl was giving orders and people were following. It will be interesting to see what Merle expects of Daryl when they are reunited.

I wish Andrea would be smarter in her choice of men. She'll have to escape Woodbury, now.

Looking forward to the next show!!!

You can't wait for motivation to strike; sometimes you need to dig deep into yourself and find the motivation on your own.

Carol is not confirmed dead/turned, but we haven't seen her since T sacrificed himself so she could escape.

Pretty sure Lori was completely devoured, and that there was even some of her hair hanging from the bloated zombie's mouth.

FFK - oh...I did not get the inference that Lori ended up in the bloated zombie... emoticon

Still not getting why WE assume Carol is dead. She was last seen (by us) leaving the prison through a door which I would assume exited to .....probably a prison court yard, right? Can not imagine it would exit outside the prison gates...or did I miss inference that too?

I can see why the group would assume she was dead if she did not show back up after the zombie dust up.

Great analysis. I agree, when civilization breaks down it will be an us vs. them situation for the most part. There may be a few isolated areas that are able to hold on to their compassion and inclusiveness...but I wouldn't expect it to be the norm. And when we get right down to it I will put me & mine before any other considerations.

I will catch up one of these days, reading the recaps is NOT the same as being able to watch the episodes.

So...question...did Carol die too? It wasn't mentioned in 3.4's recap but this week's said something about Daryl putting a flower on her grave?

I don't like that Lori's body is missing. Yes, we have the bloated zombie...but unless they showed her head in its stomach...I don't like the potential for a bad plot twist later on.

Well, someone was due for a psychotic break. Rick was the most likely candidate. He has tried to embrace the new world order of "kill or be killed" but I still felt there was an underlying conflict in him. So much pressure on him to keep his group safe and he probably blames himself for not killing all the prisoners from the get go.

Glen's comment:

"It is wrong, but I would trade any number of people for one of ours any day." highlights how easily we are sucked into the "us" vs "them" mentality and shows Rick's group is really no different than the Governors.

No matter how "liberal" and "enlightened" one pretends to be...when the rubber meets the road, we are hardwired to protect "our own." I won't apologize for that, or pretend to be better than them, since I agree and could easily be that monster when it comes to protecting my kids and family. The new baby in the group will only heighten that sense of protectiveness.

Really wish Lori would have lived. Would have loved to have seen her become a Mama Bear ala Ripley in Alien 2. It think we will see Daryl in that role. I really think that at some point Daryl and Merle will face off. I'm predicting that it will somehow involve the baby.

Loved the "Welcome to the Thunderdome" scene in the Governor's Stepford village. Continues to paint the pictures of who the real monsters are in this show.

In the end, maybe it is the HUMANS who are the monsters. After all, a zombie is no different from a rabid dog; there is no malice in what THEY do...only driving instinct and illness.

Listen to the song "Monster" by Skillet. Great song for what these good folks are becoming....

I feel it deep within,
It's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I
Feel like a monster
I hate what I've become
The nightmare's just begun
I must confess that I
Feel like a monster

Part of me was hoping Lori would be a zombie, that Carl didn't actually shoot her as it was done off screen. Ending up in a bloated zombie is more interesting!

Well, apart from Rick losing his mind (lol), that wasn't very exciting (compared to last week, at least.) The part with the Gov's zombie daughter was appropriately creepy, but predictable, and I stand by my assertion that Andrea is a rube.

Daryl rocking the baby was priceless. He is by far my favorite character.
