I was pretty disappointed that they skipped over the entire winter. Idk if maybe they could only shoot during the spring and/or summer, but I remember Rick speculating that the cold weather might slow down the walkers. I think it could have introduced a cool new dynamic. Plus the hot, humid Georgia summers are getting a bit old I think.
And how the fuck did those guards fall to the walkers while they were all armored up?
lol it doesnt matter if they were armoured up... they were outnumbered
