Storyline

Having been allowed into the CDC building, the survivors meet Dr. Edwin Jenner who appears to be the only survivor in the facility. There is plenty of food and drink and the surroundings are comfortable. A drunken Shane tries to reconcile with Lori Grimes, but she will have nothing to do with it. Dr. Jenner shows them how the infection works to reanimate a dead corpse but admits that he hasn't been able to make any advance on defeating it. Despair sets in at the realization that there is no cure for the plague that has enveloped them. Jenner has his own plans for the future leaving the survivors only a few minutes to leave the facility. Not everyone chooses to leave however. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Robert Kirkman said that this is the only episode he regrets because it tells the survivors about the rest of the world rather than learning first hand. See more »

Goofs

Dr. Jenner states that other research centers shut down for lack of electricity, including the one(s) in France. He then states that they lacked electricity "because the world runs on fossil fuels."

France gets 80% of its electricity from CO2-free nuclear power plants which run for more than a year between refueling and can even run for many years without refueling at lower efficiencies. The research center in France may have shut down for lack of electricity, but it wasn't because they ran out of fossil fuels. His fossil-fuel sermon was misplaced. See more »

Not good enough.
11 July 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

The group enters CDC, and goes into a blood test done by Doctor Erwin Jenner. Later, they enjoy the luxury of CDC(hot meal, wine, showers etc.), they learn the story of Jenner.

Shane tries to talk with Lori, and the conversation goes not well.

CDC is running out of gas, and the building is programmed to self destroy itself in case like this. Jenner refuses to open doors for group, and gives them a chance to have a 'clean death.' Group tries to persuade Jenner into opening doors and the clock is ticking.

I really disappointed in this episode. I mean, with a perfect star in season 1, I really expected a same perfect closure, perhaps a cliffhanger. But, it didn't satisfy me.

Nevertheless I give 8/10.
