LIVE Raw thoughts - November 24, 2014

10:19 - "Lesbi honest."  Brilliant.  That's why I hope she never leaves.

Also, I'm dozing off, so these LIVE thoughts might end now.

9:51 - I don't know why WWE insists on having a person debut (or redebut) by having them face the same person over and over again.  Do we really need to see Fandango and Gabriel again?  Remember how many times we saw Los Matadores vs. 3MB when they debuted?

9:48 - Soooooooooooo, we got neither a pledge or a battle royal?

9:38 - Wow.  And I'm guessing that was the good take.

9:31 - Still loving this Mizdow stuff.  And, amazingly, they're now portraying Mizdow as a legitimate competitor instead of a joke.  This is one of the few times in the past several years that they've noticed the fans catching on to something and actually responded brilliantly to it.

9:21 - I guess we should be happy Lilian didn't announce Stardust as "Cody Rhodes."

9:19 - At least the toy tag titles look kinda gold.

9:04 - Yep, another instance of Ambrose missing out on getting a clean and decisive win.  The post-match beat down was, visually, a little weak as well.

8:46 - This is a curious decision.  I'm not sure if I see them giving Ambrose the title (because it seems awkward to shoehorn a secondary title to the Ambrose/Wyatt feud).  But at the same time, do they REALLY need to rob Ambrose of another victory?  When was the last time he got a clean, conclusive and significant win?

8:39 - So Vince McMahon is a good guy?  A bad guy?  A good guy with an edge?  A bad buy trying to prevent a next generation power play?  Simply a crazy old man?

8:31 - I love D-Bry....but that went on WAY too long.  He should've eliminated the App portion and just made straight up matches to move things along (like, what if people vote for Henry/Harper?  They're both in other matches).

8:16 - That was a fun and unexpected surprise, and a satisfying way to give "closure" to the Daniel Bryan/Authority feud.

8:09 - I definitely have a feeling of "get on with it" right now, but I do like the attention Ziggler is getting in this promo.  But, really....get on with it.

8:01 - Yes, I actually WILL be doing some LIVE Raw thoughts tonight.  Was Survivor Series a perfect show?  By no means.  But between the Authority losing, Ziggler getting a huge spotlight shined on him, and Sting debuting, I am at least intrigued.  Let's see what happens tonight.

My Walking Dead prediction

This is of course speculation and observation and NOT a spoiler.  I would request that you keep any comments non-spoiler as well.  I also do not read the comics so any information that comes from the comics, but has not happened on the show yet, should be avoided.

When last we left Daryl, Carol, and Beth, Beth had just called out the doctor, Carol showed up at the hospital, and Daryl had returned to the church with somebody.  Here's what I think happened.

Daryl and Carol have been scoping out the hospital for an unspecified amount of time.  During this time, Beth and Noah attempt to escape.  Beth gets captured but Noah gets out.  Daryl and Carol, having been watching, intercept Noah and begin questioning him.  Noah tells them everything he knows, specifically about his own experience -- that they ONLY rescued him, and not his dad, because he was the more vulnerable person.  Daryl and Carol use this information to deduce that they would rescue Carol and take her in, but not necessarily Daryl (since he would be perceived as more of a threat).  Carol feigns a dangerous situation so that she can be taken into the hospital.

Noah also tells them that this is NOT a life threatening situation.  While regimented and occasionally abusive, this hospital legitimately is keeping everybody safe and healthy, and they are feeding people.  If taken inside, Carol would not be in a life or death situation.  With this in mind, Daryl and Noah return to the church to get the rest of the group to act as back up, so that they CAN break in and rescue Beth and Carol.  So Noah is the guy in the woods with Daryl.

And, as a side note prediction, I think tonight we will FINALLY see some physicality between Daryl and Carol.  It's an episode that will, presumably, focus solely on the two of them alone.  On top of that, they're on a mission to rescue Daryl's potential OTHER love interest.  With all of that in mind, how could it be avoided?  #TeamDarylCarol
