Does anyone know the name of the music used at the end of the third season when the people from Woodbury arrived at the prison. It was an instrumental piece and achingly beautiful.

I am really upset with the show right now. To kill off Beth (my opinion) a big mistake. There are some of us who would like to believe that there would be people like Beth in a world such as this. All you have now is a bunch of heartless killers. Beth was the last Moral Conscience this show had. It is sad that people are being led to believe the my way, only way, FU road to living. Rick has become a cold hearted killer. He has no compassion or concern for anything or anyone but his own (Son and Daughter). He said the rest are his family, but if you disagree with him you're out. Look how easily he kicked Carol to the curve. Feel like I stand alone on this. From what I am reading, the more killing the better. Yeah I know, I don't have to watch the show. Thanks, I won't anymore.

I agree with you about Rick but totally disagree about Beth. I've never seen her as the show's moral compass, she's never done anything that would award her the title. Beth didn't even care that her second boyfriend tragically died, we didn't even see her mourn her dad or seemed crushed that he died, yeah, she shed a few tears while watching TG beheaded her dad but she quickly forgotten him. She wanted to murder the doctor that helped her.

Ty in the other hand is the only one that shows compassion, authentic moral conscience. Some called him weak but i think he's still holding on to his humanity and refuses to let the Apocalypse turns him into a monster.

I'd say Tara and Gabriel are the last Moral Conscience this show have, Tyreese and Sasha are an enduring Moral Conscience, and so was Bob Stookey until he died.

Glenn, Maggie, Carl are a tested Moral Conscience that's all the more interesting because the characters lost hope for awhile.

Michonne, Rick and Carol are in an intriguing place as far as Moral Conscience goes and I most definirely want to see where Daryl's and Abraham's Moral Conscience go from here.

Gabriel is no one's moral compass

I think Ty, Glenn n FG are the last moral conscience left in the group after Hershel died. Why Tara? Altho' i like her a lot but i can't see what she's done that would suggest that she's one of the moral compass the show has.

Tara has been the only character in the entire Walking Dead Universe that judged herself by how she wronged others.

Unlike Rick, Michonne or Garreth's family she saw what she did that brought Hershel's demise and took responsibility for it: Tara didn't blame the Governor, the family she had to protect or the group/girlfriend she loved. She made a wrong call and told Glenn about it.

Despite Tara has been immersed in the exact same world as the rest ever since the pilot, in an "us or them" scenario she's the only character that used a moral compass to determine what she had done to "them" wasn't worthy and took actions to make up for it.

She's not preaching anyone about it, she's teaching by example. I feel this is why Tara got through Eugene, Abraham and Glenn so far.

@MollyScandalicious: Problem is there was no group back when Tara joined Glenn.

It was him or her (the exact same us or them scenario) and Tara herself said "him", which is how Glenn make "her" an "us". They were an "us" long before Abraham found them, and because of Tara's moral compass they were deemed as valuable member for their group.

Tara abandoned the safety of that group because she took upon herself to help Glenn find Maggie, and she abandoned the safety Glenn provided for her to tell Maggie what she did to her father.

Up until the Hospital, Rick had never abandoned the safety of his group to go for Carol. The Governor certainly didn't abandon the safety of his group until his group abandoned him. Neither did Dawn, Garreth, Lizzie or any single person whose moral compass got screw up. That's something only characters that believe in remorse, like Tara, Bob, Carol, Eugene, Michonne do.

Yeah she did blame TG a little, how could she not?

I think Tara didn't have a choice but to own up to her part on Hershel's death and being associated with TG, Rick saw her and she figured all of them have also. helping Glenn was the best and ONLY way she could be part of the group. It was either that or be alone and die, she was subtly forced into it, not that she had a better option.

Although i like Tara, I'm not gonna say that she's the moral compass of the group for doing something that in the end only advantaged her. One could say, the group as a whole accepting Tara (mostly Maggie) after what's happened, has also followed their moral compass.

Rick did admit that if he didn't chase after the walkers Sophia might still be alive, Daryl blamed himself for calling short TG's search, Michonne did as well, Carol blamed herself for Lizzie and TG blamed himself for Penny's death etc. Tara is not the only one who's owned up to her bad deed.

Are we all completely convinced that terminus is an evil death trap? The writers are definitely foreshadowing all kinds of ominous happenings at this place. But maybe they're setting us up for something unexpected. Terminus could indeed be a safe haven without sacrificing any drama or tension for plots moving forward. Conflicts could come from outside influences, most likely Darryl's gang showing up to slaughter Rick.

cool episode. Wasn't my favorite this season. I liked how you had the heightened anxiety when Glen and Tara are bout to get munched on and next Glen is with his "hunny bunny".
Lil' Miss Maggie is all hot in the pants for her man, has she completely forgotton about her little sister????? Kinda messed up really.
Second, the crude dude group.....that whole "claimed" rule is the dumbest thing. What kind of grown man walks around like the Seagulls from Nemo......"mine, mine, mine."
Lastly....
TERMINUS, death trap crazy town? I think so.
