Also, I forget, did we find out why the junk people talk funny? It’s because they have a communal mind or some such thing?[/quote]
It’s so jarringly out of place…like somehow they exist 50 years after the zombie apocalypse but it’s only been 18 months for everyone else. I suspect that group is going to be the red shirts in the final battle with the Saviors, so maybe it’s best they too weird for us to get attached to?
Speaking of weird…the carnival of horrors. I understand (from watching Talking Dead) that the idea was that it was a school, they had been having a carnival shortly before everything went to hell, and that it was being used as a evacuation zone of some sort so that explains the rides, the amount of people and the soldiers. After that it all comes apart.
Michonne and Rick say it looks like a battle happened there, and probably not too long after the initial apocalyptic events. They speculate either a horde attacked the camp or other people attacked. The problem with that is that nearly all the dead soldiers still had their rifles slung over their backs. If it was an attack, they’d have been using/firing them. Also, there was not a single walker inside the building where all the supplies, cots and other stuff was kept. If it was being used as an evac center, people would have been inside, even if it was just soldiers and a couple of medical people. Instead all the people and soldiers seemed to be just wandering around the carnival grounds, there was even one insdie the little ticket booth. Why the hell would someone have died trapped inside the ticket booth?! The whole thing made very little sense at all…usually I like these little “here’s a mysterious scene from the events of the apocalypse, try to put together the story” backdrops, but this one was just stupid. It was just a cheap setup for finding easy guns and supplies and having lots of zombie smashing fun.
