The Walking Dead continues with more zombie apocalypse goodness.
This episode opens with a funeral for Otis, during which Shane makes up a story to “explain” his death.
At the end of the last episode, Shane shot Otis in the leg and left him for dead with the zombie horde hot on their heels. Otis was subsequently turned into zombie chow and Shane made it back with the goodies to help save Carl’s life after being shot, by Otis, in a hunting accident.
We find out that the farm they are on has a number of wells and, unfortunately, one of those wells has a zombie “living” in it. They lower Glenn in to attach a rope to the zombie so they can pull it out and…I won’t tell you what happens. Let’s just say that things don’t always go perfectly.
The hunt for Sophia is still on and Daryl is on the case. Will they find her before she becomes zombie-poo?
And, suddenly, Shane waxes philosophic. His words make a lot of sense (he’s obviously been reading my zombie apocalypse survival article) but I still want to punch him in the nuts.
SEX?! At a time like THIS?!
Oh, good news. Carl’s doing better. Looks like he’s going to make it.
I have to say that with each passing episode, I’m liking Daryl more and more. He’s stern when he needs to be but is showing his emotional side more and being more helpful than I would have imagined. This pleases me.
All in all this episode was fairly slow. They are taking some time to build plot elements and increase the tension for the viewer with little bits and pieces of foreshadowing.
Also, another major twist at the end.
You’re going to have to watch this one. I think it’s leading up to some major serious business.
Until next time!
