The general consensus is that Carol in The Walking Dead is a sort of earth mother all caring and sharing, but, her role as survivor “mommy” has a scary duality and Rick shows in Indifference that it is not welcome at the camp anymore. It last week’s episode we learn along with Rick that she will do anything to protect the their dwindling group. Even murder and burn two survivors who caught the “walker flu.”
The Walking Dead season four, episode three is titled Isolation. It could have been called “One is the Loneliest Number.” While the title seems to be referencing the isolation that our survivors are having to endure to keep the flu from spreading, it also means the conditions that the group are living in
Season four, episode two of The Walking Dead could have been titled please do not feed the walkers. In the season premiere of season four, the amount of walkers surrounding the prison where Rick and the survivors decided to stay had increased. Not only had they increased but they were gathered around the fence in droves.
