I think they are trying to get too much mileage out of each episode. Carroll went running after T-Dog subdued the 2 walkers. I didn't even know she died until I watched The Talking Dead after show. Then we are to assume the walker Rick kills with the full tummy had a full belly from eating Lori? Again, I didn't know that until the after show. The item Rick picked up where Lori was killed was the bullet Carl used to finish his mom.
Then, Rick doesn't give Lori the time of day in season 3, she dies and he goes postal (sorry mail carriers
). It just seems odd.
I haven't read the comic series and don't notice the similarities, but really wonder who is on the phone. My guess, and it's only a guess is, when the alarm sounded it triggered an automated phone message to some police station or military installation. Either way the end of episode 5 is one of the most interesting.
I got it about the full zombie and the bullet, but I think Carl just fired the gun at the ground because he couldn't shoot his mom. (the books are totally different about this btw)
It seemed like Rick was starting to soften toward Lori, probably regrets that he was being such an ass.
I won't spoil the phone thing for you, assuming it stays true to the books.
