I personally LOVE this show. I haven't been up for much horror or gore since I became a mom. But DH bribed me with a shoulder rub to watch the first episode when it first aired and I was hooked from day 1!
I do however, dread the potential of a zombie baby. :( I have some birth trauma issues personally and really am anxious about this. Not giving anything away -- I have no idea how they will play this all out. But she did talk about what would happen if the baby died and became a zombie inside her in the last episode.
If anyone reads spoilers about this will you please PM me? My first birth was a planned home water birth turn hospital birth with an abusive OB and nearly bleeding to death followed by a planned hospital waterbirth with an awesome midwife and a beautiful all natural water birth followed, unfortunately by nearly bleeding to death (I lost consciousness 5 times while the doula was holding my baby to my breast -- saying 'goodbye' to my son each time). It was pretty terrifying and I am afraid to think what would have happend had I been at home. If this had happened in another time, I would likely not be alive. Anyway...not to get off topic too much, but the birth stuff scares me a bit.
As far as the bigger picture, I think Carol was great for doing her 'anatomy study'. It makes sense IMO. I am sure they are going to have her go into labor during a zombie attack or something equally awful. I may be skipping out on those episodes and count on you guys to fill me in.
I also am not sure why Rick is so mad. I mean, if it were the end of the world and you thought your husband was dead and found comfort, safety and security in the arms of another man, well, that is probably the only situation in the world where infidelity is understandable.
Cora is 8 and Tobin is 4 but I still can't watch movies or TV shows where there are traumatic births or where parents lose a child. So if any of you can help me out here and give me a heads up if there is a zombie baby plot, I would be grateful.
Otherwise, I am really ashamed to say that I really LOVE this show. I definitely turn my head away at the really gruesome stuff -- but I am sucked in and the survivalist/naturalist in me likes to think of all of the better ways I would survive in this situation. I mean, moat anyone??? Come on -- we know they can't swim! Why hasn't anyone dug a moat?
:) I am looking forward to chatting about this show with you ladies! I can't wait until Sunday for the next episode!
