    1:49 I interpreted the "I'm not" as "I'm not okay with being alone", basically telling Daryl that it's alright to need people and even the strongest fighters can need other people

  • Ailidh

    This episode was bad, why did the kids mark Michionne and Daryl? to kill them later?
    the kids as psicopaths was not realistic at all, couldn't michionne punch/kicked them senseless?
    where the hell was Daryl while michionne was killing them, he took a tour of the whole place?

    This season has been so dull and half of the episodes feel like fillers leading up to something (hopefully) spectacular.

    I thought that Terminus was in Georgia, and after Terminus’s fall they went to Virginia to see if Noah’s family was still there. Unless Gareth’s group followed them. But I don’t think that Bob was with them to go to Virginia.
    What I’m saying is that Gareth’s school and Jocelyn’s school are in two different places, which means that Jocelyn’s school can’t be the same school that the Terminus survivors went to.

    The interesting thing is that BOTH Carol and Michonne made the hard choice of killing Lizzie and killing the Children of the Corn kids to protect Judith. In both Carol and Michonne’s minds, both choices were done out of necessity of protecting and both choices seem to have greatly impacted who they have become.

    I still pick "THE GROVE" as most disturbing, hardest to watch... but, I also say it's one of the better. I've watched the episode many times... but, I've also skipped the end about as many times, it's heartbreaking.
    I'll say that 9x14 "SCARS" has continued a string of well done episodes this season which, many people are calling the best one ever... but, there are two episodes left...

    I don’t think you can compare the two killings because one had someone young who had already turned like in Lizzie’s case.

    Carol and Lizzy’s because, Carol was emotionally attached and it was not in self-defense. It was murder from the back

    having to murder children because they are trying to kill you is much less disturbing than having to murder a mentally ill child who you know could've received help in the old world. Lizzies death was one of the most heart wrenching moments in any series or movie.
