It would have made more sense for it to give way with the zombies subsequently falling through that hole but it wouldn't have been as action-y I guess.

But the splats they made when they landed were awesome at least.

Yea the direction they're taking the show is straying from the "life in the zombie apocalypse" theme. I used to feel like this was one group and there could be many other groups facing the same ordeals. We are just following these people and their struggle.

Now they're starting to become like super heroes. Zombies fall from the ceiling and the main cast just handles business while everyone else is helpless and panics. New characters are introduced so someone can be killed off.

Was it the fuel from the helicopter that caused the roof to weaken?

Am I the only one that thought maybe the kid got poisoned intentionally by someone so that he would die and become a walker/biter/lamebrain in the prison to create some chaos? Possibly as a distraction for something?

I think the writers are trying to come up with 'new' ways to show us some zombie-killing action and sometimes they go a little bit too far. Although I didn't mind the marketplace scene. I mean, there's only so much you can do with those zombies. They don't scream "variety!".

Most likely combined with the rain and a lack of general maintainence on the roof.

That didn't occur to me at all but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

It was a nice episode, not 16 million viewers worth good but ok.

Because as The Big Bang Theory, NCIS and about 90% of what has been on CBS for the last decade have shown us, you have to be the best possible to get those kind of viewers.

For cable television to pull those numbers you have to be a lot better than a network.

I was just pointing out the amount of people that watched was absurd. I think the popularity of this show is absurd and it bothers me that people think this show is as good as Breaking Bad. I'm not your enemy Sawyer.

I don't think the general audience is as picky about things as us internet fans. LOL

God, not Breaking Bad again. I'm so sick of that series. Who gives a ****?

The general audience may not be picky but for cable television, 16 million is a lot. It's rare they hit that kind of spread which is exactly why this is getting reported on.

Well they were wandering aimlessly about the roof until the crashing shelf noise gave them all one destination, and when they gathered above the noise the combined weight began the roof's collapse.

Was the kid who died at the end the same that took over the cooking for Carol. Could he be a kind of Typhoid Mary, for more group members, spreading his disease, whatever it might be, by touching the food.

Early predictions:

-Bob is the Governor's spy.
-Michonne searching for the Governor will end badly, and she'll be kidnapped by him.
-The prison attack will come at the mid-season finale and there'll be lotsa death.
-The group will be inadvertedly split into two factions at some point in the season (probably after the prison attack). Like in the comics, Rick, Carl and some other people will escape one way and the rest will escape another. Rick will meet up with Eugene and Abraham and then the "I know about a cure and safe zones and ****" lie will come in from the former, leading them to Washington.
-Rick has too many right-hand-men/women. Daryl, Tyreese, Michonne. I'm thinking that Daryl will be killed some time this season.
-Either this season, or the next, the group will finally reach a SAFE-ZONE. An official government one. There's tons of potential. Plus, in the SDCC trailer the word "Sanctuary" was broadcast over the radio. They could have a story arc like in Breaking Bad and Lost, where the leader of the operation/sanctuary (in BrBa's case, Gus Fring and in Lost's, Ben Linus) becomes the deadly villain. It worked fantastically on those shows. Even better if you could get an actor like Michael Emerson in the role

Those are all strong possibilities although I only think two, maybe three of them will come true. I just don't know which ones I'd bet on yet.

I think it's obvious that the walkers on the roof were either a) part of the helicopter crew or b) part of the contingent waiting to be rescued by the chopper.

I just think it would make sense seeing how it seems like someone is trying to sabotage the prison.

I thought that too. Not so sure anymore though.
