I raised the same question saxi about the gas. Not to mention that Rick has found around 4000 magnum rounds and everyone has military grade weapons.

The only time I ever got annoyed at Walking Dead was when the prison was under attack and the Governor and his crew were firing off rounds like it was nothing. How many effing military convoys did they raid?

Those are good points. I thought about that, but then, I thought: (a) they could have vetted the hitchhiker through Merle when they got back to prison to verify he was not a Woodburyian, (b) they already know (via Merle) Woodbury only had 90-some citizens, that they shot up at least a few of them, and a certain percentage are non-fighters ... so the Governor couldn't afford to have undercover hitchhikers roaming around.


I need to just make this point on the whole "hitchhiker" start and end scenes.

First, we know that Rick and company are much more apt to not help people who are not part of the group. From experience, Rick has learned that inviting new people in can be incredibly hazardous and lead to deaths inside his circle. Whether or not the hitchhiker was a Governor plant doesn't really matter. The point of the "hitchhiker" was to drive home how far the group has descended, but the decision to leave him stranded on the road was actually thought through by Rick, Michonne, and Carl (all without them saying a word).

Or did you miss it?

Rick and company do not want people in the group who are so stupid and reckless that they would bring ill upon anyone within the group. It was evident that the man walking on the road was incredibly stupid. The director made it quite clear by having the hitchhiker bellow at the top of his lungs,"HEY! Over HERE!"

I think that would be the first clue in not helping the guy, but then you knew for sure that he was going to get eaten by zombies. Why? Because when he is yelling and screaming as loud as he can for Rick to stop, we get a good close up of his backpack and see that he has some cooking pots and pans clanging...like a dinner bell! The guy probably had hordes of walkers following him through the forest even if he never spoke a word.

Obviously, the guy was so dumb, desperate, and acting with total abandon that Rick, Michonne, and Carl all quietly glanced at each other in silent agreement. Anyone that acted like that had already proven through their own actions that they would be a dangerous inclusion into the group.


Very well thought out!

The important thing is that Rick got the cook wares. LOL. :D

The tl;dr version: the hitchhiker was a moron, Rick doesn't want morons.

How is that guy a moron? I'm sure if you were by yourself during a zombie apocalypse you'd be pretty fucking excited to see humanity.

See what happened when they denied Tyrese and Sasha? They ended up at the town and now are going to fight Rick because they think the Governor is more sane than Rick.

Judging by those hallucinations, the Governor is more sane than Rick.

Even if he didn't utter a word, you could judge it by his backpack. First, because it's foolish to have such a large, cumbersome thing on your back in a world where you need to be agile to evade walkers (sometimes without warning... the buggers sneak right up on you). Second, as mentioned previously, having pots, dinnerware, etc. dangling off the sides of the pack created a constant noise (you could hear it as he was walking along), and it's been proven many times that the walkers are attracted to noise. Frankly, I'm shocked he hadn't figured it out himself already: you see a walker, you make a noise, the walker turns toward you & begins pursuing. Not exactly rocket surgery, ya know lol. That's also why I'm guessing he had only been on his own for a short while, I can't imagine that he'd survive for long in that world.

Not saying that Rick et al. not helping him was right, mind you.

LOL; "Rocket surgery" :? (???) LOL. OK, we'll come back around to that one in a bit. :lol:

That is precisely why I thought that he was probably a plant from the governor. But I realize now that he wasn't. My vote is that he is a "Moron" from a larger group that only recently met it's demise. Most probably because of him and so as luck would have it, The "Morons" are the last to die. LOL.

I would further surmise that the group the hitchhiker was with, were also mostly moron's to still be traveling on the road when the safest thing to do is to secure an area and get a good nights sleep. Otherwise what good are you. If after a year you have not found a place with food to fight over and protect (like a prison or a hospital or a shopping mall) then you just deserve to get eaten alive. :D

OK; I am not going to touch that Rocket surgery. It sounds really complicated. LOL. :lol:

But it still doesn't explain the desperate statement of picking up AoG if he were hitchhiking? :lol:


AOG is 100% loyal.


Loyalty has nothing to do with it. If you come across AoG on the side of the road you don't ask questions, you just grab him, throw him in a papoose, and get back to camp. Once back at base he'll amuse himself until you need him to defend camp. Then you give him a gun and a machete and - WATCH OUT. After he slaughters like 20 bandits, he'll demand a box of animal crackers and 2 cans of root beer, so you need to make sure you stock-up on those if you expect a zombie apocalypse.
