    Ha. I didn't make the father figure connection and a possible scenerio of Meryl taking his father-hatred out on Herschel. Actually, I'm hoping end of season is our group pulling together to do battle and those survivors become more welded together, shedding past grudges (not that Meryl would deserve that).

    Found this on the web and seems to fit the walker thing. No offense to anyone.

Hershel has made a terrible mistake since he kinda comes off as a father figure.

    Thank you for sharing.
    I have a different take on this. Daryl talked about how his father went on benders with women of questionable character. Usually the bible thumpers dont hang out with whores.

And, just because someone can quote bible verses does not mean they have any great morality. We are all aware of people who spew them out for a living and their own personal gain (God wants you to send me your money......). This seems to be more prevalent in the South, where our boys are from. IMO, Once Hershel makes that quote, Meryl can use that to try to manipulate him.
    exactly. I'm sure the Devil can quote the Bible word for word... that doesn't mean he follows it!

    This was my take on the scene...
