Hoo boy, if I was worried that this half of the season wouldn't be as good as the first half of the season - tonight put that to rest! I love Daryl SO MUCH. Could he be any more heroic and amazing? He's definitely one of my favourite TV characters ever, in no small part due to his character arc from cowering, ignorant hillbilly to brave, selfless, loyal warrior. Yay!

I've got to tell you, when Daryl finally recognized that he really was a better man than his brother, when he saw the truth that he'd surpassed Merle in all ways, as a hunter, a friend, a family member, a human being, I was so proud of him. "I almost killed that Chinese kid." "He's Korean!!!" LOL, Daryl! And he was right about which river they were near, too. Merle is such an asshole, yo. And when Rick was about to perish at the teeth of that zombie, and all was lost...and Daryl showed up to save him -- I'm not even kidding, I actually threw my hands up in the air and cheered. It was EXCELLENT. All it took was a nod between them, and they were good again.

Also:
- Rick definitely had a grim look of ragealicious determination at the end. We'll see if that's enough to snap him out of Crazytown. Heh. Rick and the evil Governor, head to head. Make it so!
- Poor Carol. First Daryl leaves her without a fare-thee-well and then Axel gets his head blow off while telling her an amusing personal anecdote. She just can't catch a break. Also, I love her and her character arc as well. I want her and Michonne to become BFFs and kick ass.
 - Speaking of Michonne, she is being sorely underutilized. I hope everyone learns how perfect she is and worships her soon. I also hope she and Rick have sex. I'm not sure how that could ever plausibly come about, but still. Fanfic would also suffice.
- How long can Andrea continue to be THAT much of an idiot re: the Governor? She seemed to be coming around by the end of tonight's episode, but we'll see.
- If you want to know how not to treat a sexual assault victim, just ask Glen. I feel bad that they went from sweet lovers in love to the car wreck they presently are. This show will stomp on your soul, people. Stomp stomp stomp.
- After the hundreds if not thousands of zombies these people have shot, I'm amused and skeptical of how nobody could hit the broad side of a barn in their epic gun battle at the prison. Heck, the Governor didn't even have to side-step the bullets!

Yes.

I'm amazed at how good Daryl has gotten. Each week, he ups the heroism. Yay!! I like how they showed Meryl that Daryl had suffered too. For a second, I thought he had angel wing tattoos on his back, like his jacket. But it wasn't. That would have been cool.

I wonder how far around they are going to turn Meryl.

I hope Daryl and Carol get it on, post haste.

Michonne and Rick, if they have sex, it will be angry sex, and then their souls will be cleared. Or something like that! LOL

The writing for Andrea is shi&&y. I wish they'd just find a place for her and keep it consistent.

I think Glen is now realizing what it is like to be part of a group. Both in his ship with Maggie, and also the big group. He thinks he has to be the strong one, but he really doesn't. He just needs to be him. He's going to screw up if he tries to be Rick, or Shane, or whomever.

Love this show.

I just started watching this show!!! Just last weekend!

Anyway, I felt bad for Carol. That dude was flirting with her so hard and BOOM! Bye, flirty dude!

"I almost killed that Chinese kid." "He's Korean!!!"

I loved this line! I was like, hey, Daryl, you're more enlightened than I'd pegged you for!

Andrea's got potential, methinks. I'll bet she's the one who ultimately takes out the Governor.

I'm going to have to get the first two seasons and catch up!
