Is it just me or was this past episode more depressing that the last one?

Last two episodes have tanked.

We get that it sucks in the zombie apocalypse and that there are non-stop horrors in this new 'life'. KILL SOME FUCKING ZOMBIES AND GET EVEN ALREADY.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

I wouldnt say that they tanked, but I will say they were not the best. Really, the tornado takes out the walkers at the door, but does ZERO damage to the barn? Yeah, no. What really bugged me though is that they are all holding the door closed against the walkers, and then it switches to them sleeping. WTF is that?!
I do agree though about the killing part. Get to some zombie murder!

My reaction to that scene change:

so...was that just a metaphor or....?

Then they walked outside. Plenty of Tornadoes do damage one side of the fence and not another, lots of instances of that happening in reality. That close, I don't know...but close. Either way e10 was marginally better than e09, with 09 being possibly the worst episode of the show as far as I go. Good riddance, and lets hope the new additions to the group stop being little bitches soon.

Hopefully something happens with this new guy that walked up to the group and there is some sort of tumultuous event that shakes things up before the season finale, because I'm getting less and less excited for each new episode when they play out the way they have.

Considering the first half of the season was so good, these two episodes have been terrible. This latest episode, I really didn't like the Godly overtones, and the tornado scene was just ridiculous?

However, if this new guy is who I think he is, we're in for a big shake up, with the gang having to make some big choices about their future.if he turns out to be gay I'll be proved right.

I have to disagree , the last two episodes i really enjoyed, all too often with shows like this we are persuaded by the writers and directors to suspend our belief in order to enjoy the show, We know that the zombies are well made up extras and that in reality it wouldnt be all that hard to defend against this type of zombie particularly in the gun capital of the world, but we go with it anyway, it was nice to see that these guys are just regular people with feelings and emotions and that all this shit they have to deal with is wearing them down(apart from Carol who will just kill a mother fucker), it may have felt a little like a filler episode but i think it added a little realism, i liked the fact Sasha lost it at the bridge and did something stupid causing the group to change its plan and almost get into shit because of it, that was exactly what killed her Brother.

HUGE BITZ RESTOCK NOW ON

I have no problem (actually like) with them showing that they are just regular people. The last few episodes really showed how beaten down a person can get (and how fast it can happen). That said, they still weren't my favorite episodes. Do love the show though.

I thought the last two episodes were pure poo, sure they are showing there vulnerable side at being in a world of shit, but if the script writters wanted to show that, they should have done it sooner, after all the group have been shit on a lot bdfore this. Yes suspension of disbelief is the order of the day for a programme such as this, but in order for survival, I would imagine a group such as this would have had to except their new reality long ago to get as far as they have considering what they have been through.

But they have always shown them as normal people being affected by what's happening. We've seen Carol go from a battered wife into a proper hardass, Tyrese refused to let the whole thing turn him into a killer, the Governor was turned into a psychopath by it, Rick had a breakdown in the prison, Abraham frightened his family away because of the changes in him, Morgan seemed to have a complete break from reality after seeing his undead wife kill his son. The show has always been good at showing how circumstances affect normal people in different ways. It didn't need two whole episodes that generally seem to be accepted as the poorest in the series so far to show us this specifically.
