I tell you what is interesting; watching reactions to the first episode on Youtube. I've watched 5 so far and everyone one of them have left off the most harrowing scene at the end when Rick is told to cut his son's arm off. It shows me that only violence and gore is what shakes people now and more cerebral dread or foreboding doesn't cut it. We're supposed to be inside Rick's head at that moment, faced with the absolute truth of the situation and feeling the inevitability of that final blow. We finally see Rick dismantled before the very people he has lead throughout the whole series, a strong man reduced to a wretched man. An absolutely stunning scene overlooked for two scenes of overt violence.
