Just Incredible!
7 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the tenth episode of the second season of Walking Dead and it seems like each episode keeps on getting better and better as the season progresses and nears the end. This episode features the confrontation between Rick and Shane that we have all come to be expecting. There is also a good amount of walker action here all due to their fight.

In this episode, "18 Miles Out," Rick and Shane head out to find supplies for the upcoming winter and the decide to leave their captive 18 miles away from the farm. But they find out he may know where the farm is, and Shane tries to kill him, but Rick stops him from doing so. As a result, Shane and Rick fight with each other which alerts all the walkers to their presence. Meanwhile, Lori, Andrea, and Maggie all deal with a suicidal Beth.

Overall, this is a fantastic episode and it's going to be interesting to see what happens next. This episode is where we get to see Rick as a leader and one that may be worth keeping an eye on. I rate this episode 10/10.
