  • Otis 2.0

    The not-drop point screamed Otis 2.0, only this time it was Rick in Shane's position and Shane in Otis's. I knew before he came back that he wouldn't leave Shane behind, because Rick's hell-bent on being the good guy, on keeping his morality. They haven't reconciled by far, but I think Shane's been dealt with for a handful of episodes. As for Andrea... while I appreciate what her character brings, I'm ready to be rid of her. What she did was a wonderful example of how grey the world is, but that still doesn't mean she's a good person to have around.moreless
  • Rick and Shane

    Finally Rick and Shane had a falling out. It was long overdue and totally worth it. The zombie action was fun to watch. And then Rick saving Shane's ass was awesome.
  • Why did they want to get rid of the kid?

    I'm confused here.. When Rick heard Herschel wanted the group off his land, he was stunned, couldn't understand why he would send them away. All (living) humans are in this together right? And now that's exactly what they are doing with Randall. He's just a kid, why do they consider him to be SUCH a threat that they feel they need to just leave him behind somewhere??

    Doesn't seem like something Rick would do...

    Why wouldn't they just let him in the group, I don't see the threat.......moreless
  • 2x10 - 18 Miles Out

    Another episode that I enjoyed which just enough drama and plenty of action. I like that they're finally thinking of how to fight the walkers without just shooting them 'cause at some point ammunition will run out. I even liked how Andrea treated Beth regarding her wanting to die, after all she'd been there.

    The only thing I hated was Lori's attitude of 'Let the men face the danger and we'll keep house'. When you're in an apocalypse world, you sure as hell can't think that your priority is housework! That's freaking crazy. She has no cause to be passing judgement on Andrea for her survival mode. Argh. I've resisted saying anything negative about Lori but that scene just annoyed me to no end. And as much as I want there to be baby born, mostly for the shenanigans of trying to raise a child in zombie overrun world, I've now reached the point where I want Lori dead.moreless
  • What did the zombie say after shaking hands? "Keep the tip."

    Except for some zombie action and a would-be suicide, this episode really didn't move the story forward in any significant way.

    In fact, the only protagonists in this episode, were Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Jon Bernthal (Shane), Sarah Callies (Lori), Laurie Holden (Andrea), Lauren Cohan (Maggie) and Herschel's blonde daughter and the guy they saved a couple of episodes ago. No one else (Dale, Glenn, Daryl, Carol, Carl, et. al.) were seen or heard from. Maybe they were enjoying some well-deserved time off.

    In any case, the action scenes, although well-executed, left me with the same thought that many of the zombie scenes in The Walking Dead leave me with: aren't they afraid of getting infected blood in any cavity, cut or gash? There's blood everywhere and close proximity a-plenty but I never see them too worried about that.


    Tonight especially, after Rick voiced his perplexity at not seeing any bites on the security guards, I wondered about this. Guess only time will reveal the mystery.

    And so, again, the story did not move forward in any significant way. It was however, still pretty decent, and satisfying enough.


    Oooh! I do have something to add :).

    Although not episode-specific, I want to know if Carol and Daryl will ever 'get together'. I think she is a beautiful woman and Daryl is hott. Their on-screen time together sizzles, and in general I think it would be good for both of them (Daryl needs a nurturing/caring female and Carol needs a strong man).

    C'mon Walking Dead writers! Go there!moreless
