Goofs

When Daryl returns to the farm to get Carol, you can see his motorcycle has 'offroad' tires, especially noticeable by the large MTX style tread pattern on the front wheel. In later scenes, on the highway meeting point and when they pull over when Rick runs out of gas, he suddenly has 'road' tires with a significantly different tread pattern. See more »

Rick Grimes: No one is going anywhere.
Carol Peletier: Do something.
Rick Grimes: I am doing something! I'm keeping this group together, alive. I've been doing that all along, no matter what. I didn't ask for this. I killed my best friend for you people, for Christ's sake!

Jump the Shark Anyone?
6 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For me, this is about where the show jumped the shark.

Firstly it's revealed that they are "all" infected and that causes a tizzy!!

Why? It's doesn't make a bit of difference if they know that or not. Not one shred of difference.

They all see that once bitten the dead always rise, so this bit of knowledge does nothing and you have to wonder why it is even mentioned. The CDC should have said something else to him.

Next, the show becomes fragmented after this episode. Too many story lines too many characters to be following. It might work a little better if your marathon watching but when they skip so many months between seasons it doesn't.

And finally, they start to get way too dramatic introducing new characters -- uh the hooded one ???

Come on.

The show was so well written in the beginning. Things really took a wrong turn with the series after this episode.
