I DON"T TRUST THE OLD VET!
I bet they have the little girl too...
I hadn't noticed your prior prediction, but if I were a nit-picker, I would
mention that the Vet was unaware since Otis was putting the stray Walkers
in the barn. But I won't mention it, since I'm not a nit-picker.
Oh come on now.... The vet knew the names of every zombie in that barn including the names of the two he was bringing in with the sheriff. So what if Otis was bringing in strays, that zombie herder takes inventory; He needs to know how many zombies he has in the barn. So, he knew there was a little girl zombie in that barn!
Otis died before the "we're looking for a little girl" topic came up. He could of told the
group, "Yeah, I found a little brain muncher stray. I put her in the barn with the others."
The Vet wanted the group to leave, for various reasons, including Glen boffing the
Farmer's Daughter. So why, Mr. Smarty-Pants, didn't he say, "The little girl is in the
Barn. You can kill her, or leave her with the others. It's your decision. Afterwards,
there's no reason for you to stay. You can leave now."
Your first impulse will be to say, "He didn't tell them because he didn't want any of
the zombies killed, including the little girl." This might be true, but, IMO, not after Rick
came to talk with him, and the Vet knew that the entire group was aware of the
Now I'll admit that he might have known the little girl was in the barn all along, and
he was just hoping they'd leave, even after the entire group knew about Walker Barn.
But this question cannot be answered until February, because, no doubt, Rick and the
group will accuse the Vet of knowing all along. How will he respond? Will he deny it,
saying "Otis must have put her in there without my knowledge", or will he say "Yes, I
knew it all along"?
