Also, why wouldn't you pick the police station as your place of fortification? It has hot water from propane. There must be thousands of houses with propane tanks, you're set for hot water for at least a year if you ration that shit.
As everyone else said, loved it but it doesn't make a lot of sense for him to be chasing down his missing wife based on what we saw in the series. His kid... sure but his wife? There were no flashes of her visiting him at the hospital.. no flowers from her (just his partner) they apparently had a huge fight before he was shot that had him upset. I get they wanted the big shock that she was kissing another guy, his partner none-the-less but come on...(spoiler) I believe in the comic she boarded up his hospital room and left him a note saying she went to Atlanta... I mean, thats love!
in all fairness, we don't know how much gas he packed. He might have went through 4 cans before running out. Yeah, he was carrying only one can with him, but there was no way he was carrying back more then one fill can, considering the circumstances.
As for the Police station, I was thinking I would have stayed there, but when I thought back, we really don't know how safe it was. Sure, there was a cage for the guns that we saw, and showers, but something that big is asking for trouble. Keep it smaller so you can know if anyone broke in. Plus, having a child that young, it's probably best to keep him in an enivorment he is somewhat used to, that being a home, with a bed. Also, being in a nieghbor hood, might give you multiple places to look for other supplies such as food, clothing, etc...
Being a father myself, I would have done the same thing. First clue I get to where he might be, I'm off. Without his son, and probably his wife, he was probably thinking "whats the point of living".
Do we know how long he was in the hospital before the outbreak? A day? Week? Month?
