I enjoyed the premiere a lot. I expected our guys to be stuck in Terminus a lot longer than an hour, and it's a relief that they weren't.

I just FF this show a lot. All of the skull bashing etc, not becaue I am squeamish but due to the fact that it is repetitive and boring to me.

Enjoyed it more than I expected. Maybe my expectations were low? Part of it is because I love it when Carol gets to be a bad ass. Also surprised the stay at Terminus was so short-lived.

The walkers-on-fire were pretty cool. Reminded me of Freddie Krueger. It made me chuckle that the walkers got right back up and kept walking after Carol blew up that tank.

I was highly annoyed with Tyreese for what went down in the cabin but after I thought about it I guess it does make sense that he wasn't quite at the point of killing another human who hadn't really done anything, yet.

The reunion was nice. About as happy as it needs to get on this show.

Good to see Morgan at the end there.

I see the episode broke some cable ratings records.

Carol saving the day was great. Lots of good action and scary moments.

I liked the scenes between Tyreese and the captive (Chris Coy from Treme).

Reunion was good... good to see Rick & Carl with Judith... Big group now. 15 people (including the baby). Everybody is together except for Beth, who went missing...

Fun surprise to see Morgan at the end... wonder how many missed that post-credits, post-previews, pre-Talking Dead scene, due to either hitting 'stop' early, or... my dvr cut it in the middle, but I know some probably missed it entirely...

Does that mean we'll be seeing more of him?

Yup. He wasn't killed. We'll see him again.

I'm thinking he won't become best buddies with our group, though.

Oh, that's interesting. I wonder if he was who Gimple was referring to when he said we'd meet a villain worse than the Governor on Talking Dead.

In the comics, still-alive-then Dale was in the position Bob was at the end of 5.2...

Poor Bob. I was thinking he went outside to cry because he'd been bitten in the basement and was going to kill himself. Of course, it's possible that he was bitten and the crazies from Terminus were eating contaminated meat, hehe.

I'm enjoying them all together and on the road more than having them in all different directions. The episode felt like a nice change of pace, to me.

Like Michonne, I miss Hershel, too.

Wasn't there a female traveling with Abraham and Eugene? I kept looking for her in this episode but felt like I couldn't find her.
