We didn't see them leave the prison. We didn't see them return to the prison. They were in a car. They could've been driving for 10 hours for all we know.

You guys are ridiculous with this complaint. :lol:

yup!

If there is an argument in the prison next week about how reckless it was for Rick to take two of their best fighters with him on a two day trip to stock up the stockades right after a brutal attack on the complex, then I will agree it may have been a hasty complaint, but in a show that is usually pretty good in paying attention, there were big gaffs here. Sorry that you don't agree, but it is not a ridiculous complaint. It drew me out of the show, it hurt the show in future viewings for me, therefore it was the worst episode of the series for me.

I really doubt Rick thought it was a good idea to drive 10 hours away from his baby daughter when they were possibly under attack from Woodbury.

That makes it even dumber, IMO.

Loved this episode and thought it was the best of the season thus far
took me a minute to remember that the last ep ended with the three of them getting in the car, but other than a bad "previously on" segment the ep was fantastic

I guess half the episode should have been the car ride. :smt102

As for Carl’s dumb move, yeah he’s better at compartmentalize and has kept it together, but he’s still just a kid and probably more sentimental. I totally get it.

Daryl, Merle, Glenn, and Maggie are all more reliable "fighters" than Carl, and Michonne isn't as capable as Daryl or Merle, arguably. The whole point is that Rick trusts Daryl lead the people in his absence.

Also, i hate the idea that characters aren't allowed to use poor judgement, or not allowed to be illogical. You sound like Strict: everything has to be "logical", or it isn't realistic. In fact the more stupid choices they make, the more "realistic" the show gets.

Why change the voting so we can't see who scored what? :?

Yeah, I had all the same thoughts. He's the one guy who can't figure out how to operate any of the thousands of vehicles he's passed, too. "Fuck cars, I'm doing this for the environment!" Dumb ass.

So I can resist the urge to haze all the people bitching about picayune shit as far as this episode goes.

That doesn't make sense, you're obviously responding to what is posted in the thread anyway. If you haven't gotten used to people not agreeing with you at this late date, you wouldn't even lurk here.

How much good would he be if they have no ammo? What would he or michonne do.... Throw rocks at the armed paramilitary guys?

The needs outweighed the risks. They needed more guns and ammo if they're going to put up a fight.

The episode has gotten great reviews everywhere -- except here. :lol:


IGN: 9.6
For the second season in a row, The Walking Dead took Rick Grimes and a couple of others away from the rest of the characters for an entire episode. And for the second season in a row, this led to one of the best episodes yet for the series.


Vulture: 4 out of 5
The Walking Dead may be the weirdest show on television right now. All season long it’s been dragging its feet (and I’m not talking about zombies here) and then suddenly it delivers a very good episode like last night’s.


io9:
Last week I mentioned that The Walking Dead is a deeply flawed show. I stand by that — I enjoy the show, but it's despite lack of characterization and ridiculously straightforward dialogue (let me put it this way; I'm hard-pressed to think of a more popular show whose characters audiences merely tolerate, not enjoy). I mention this because last night's "Clear" is just about perfect, easily the best TWD episode since the pilot, and one of the best episodes of television of the entire season.


Paste Magazine: 9
The tense moments we’ve come to expect (zombies waking up in a dark, musty restaurant) are balanced by quiet, philosophical moments that dig deeper into what it means to be alive without the structures of civilization. And Lennie James’ performance as a the traumatized Morgan give the episode the gravitas it needed.


CHUD:
“Clear,” this week’s episode of The Walking Dead, strips away nearly everything that has defined the series so far this season — the prison, Woodbury, the Governor, Andrea’s weekly bouts with stupidity — and instead offers us a version of the show in its simplest form. The end result? Easily the best episode of the season. Maybe even the best episode of The Walking Dead‘s entire run so far.


Collider: 9
Last week’s episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead was a bit on the dull side, but tonight’s ep really made up for it! New locations to experience, interesting relationships to explore and even a surprise reunion. While it wasn’t the most action-packed of episodes, there was just something about tonight’s hour that took the franchise to a whole new level.
“Clear” was one of those strong character-building episodes I’ve been longing for this season.
