The one thing that really bugged me on this one was the amount of time Andrea spent talking withMilton and just stopped doing anything to free herself. I mean we're told women are good multitaskers, couldn't she have been talking and getting hold of those pliers and cutting herself free at the same time?
This bothered me as well. She spent a lot of time talking with Milton, or giving the camera distressed looks instead of trying to free herself. Milton had to remind her a number of times to hurry up. Plus, we've seen many times that she's quite good at killing the zombies - so how exactly did Milton manage bite her once she was free? I didn't think that fit well with her character.
I get the impression that the show occasionally likes to remind us that anyone could get bitten in any situation. I don't know how long Andrea had been held there. Probably no more than a couple days but I imagine she wasn't in top condition when she was freed.
It is interesting how people die from biters/walkers. For example, T-Dog's death seemed entirely preventable. Unless one is literally mobbed by zombies, I can't fathom how one is bitten. It's not like we're talking about wolves (no pun intended strike) here; we're talking about slow, spastic former human beings. I actually can understand Andrea's death, especially if she was still stuck in the chair. Can't understand T-Dogg's death at all in the context of the show.
Other things that bothered me:
- How do five people chase off 50 people in the prison? Yeah, the 50 people weren't trained soldiers but I was like "What the? Why are they running away?" I honestly thought it was fake. These 50 people just finished blowing the unliving crap out of watchtowers, walls, and zombies.
- How do 20 people with guns let 1 guy with an eyepatch shoot them all?
- Further, why did Crazy McPatch kill all those people? I mean yeah, he's crazy, but can he be that crazy to destroy his power base? Power was ultimately what he was most concerned about so why throw that away.
