Did You Know?


The title of this episode comes from when Molly (Jill Jane Clements) says to Carol (Melissa McBride), "I'm a dead woman walking... which puts us in exactly the same boat." See more »


When Polly opens the door to leave the room after arranging to meet with Rick to negotiate a trade "in 10 minutes", there are two walkers she has to get past. She stabs them both, but only the first one gets it in the head. She clearly stabs the second one in the neck rather than the head and it drops to the floor. This would not work on a walker.

Carol's actions are interesting
17 March 2016 | by davemaijalaSee all my reviews

Yes, leaving Carol and Maggie alone is straight out of a Batman TV series episode, allowing them time to do something - but the episode did result in atypical difficulties. What was special was Carol's actions (including her acting) - from the very beginning. Did you notice her marking the ground with her boot, knowing it would help Rick and the group track their location? Carol is the wisest of the group and her character arc is amazing - one of the best in any movie or TV show. Since I have to include one more line of text, here it is..................
