    @SherlockHolmes2009 I thought we were talking about Lori and what happens to her. But yeah, Kirkan stated that Rick won't be losing his hand in the TV shows.

    Okay trailer. It'll be entertaining, but after that debacle of a finale, I'm not sure if the quality is present anymore.

    @pjwolsker Well if you remember, they had no idea about the prison even being there, and it seemed to be far away. Walking distance on foot to finally come across the prison might have taken them that long.

    @SherlockHolmes2009 I was thinking about that too, unless it happens this season (under a different cause) or they'll save it in the fourth season.

    @ghostman yeah but they were right next to the prison when the 2nd season ended. It shouldn't have taken them 3-4 months to get in. What were they doing in all that time?

    @pjwolsker Judging from Hershel's beard and Lori's belly showing, it seems to take place 3-4 months after season two ended.

    Why the f*ck does Hershal have a beard when he didn't have one when the season ended. There's no way they stayed there in that spot all this time.. Other then that though it looked great
