The Walkers are the Judge, Jury and Executioner.
11 July 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Randall tells how dangerous his group is to Daryl. After that, everybody thinks Randall should be executed, except Dale. Dale thinks they are losing their humanity, and Rick gives him time to convince group otherwise, if he can: till sundown.

Meanwhile Beth is recovering from her catatonic and miserable state. Hershel talks with Glenn, and gives him his watch that is a family heirloom: it is a sign that he approves he and Maggie.

Dale talks to many member of group that day to convince them, but nobody seem to think execution is wrong.

Carl mocks Carol for believing on heaven that Sophia is living there. He finds an item from Daryl's motorcycle, and encounters a stuck walker.

At the sundown, the group is ready to execute Randall, Dale thinks the group is "broken". At midnight, he walks toward to wood line, just before he had a terrific encounter.

This episode is the mark that, storyline is going very well. I actually jumped and shocked at the end. Character improvement is very good as well. It is sorry sight to watch Dale tries to awake the group from their killing intentions.

And come to think of it, I think walkers are the judge, jury and executioner.

My vote is 8/10.
