Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Daryl interrogates Randall about his group and he learns that they are formed by thirty dangerous men capable to rape two teenage daughters in front of their father. Rick and Shane decide to kill Randall, who is considered a threat to the survivors, but Dale opposes to their decision and Rick summons the group that is supportive to the execution to vote. Dale tries to convince each survivor that they must not lose their humanity. Carl is affected by the situation and has strange actions: first he sneaks to talk to Randall; then he disrespects Carol with an offensive comment about her beliefs; then he teases a walker that is trapped in the swamp; then he decides to participate in the meeting that will judge of Randall; and finally when Rick is ready to shoot Randall in the head, Carl arrives in the barn affecting Rick. Meanwhile Dale wonders on the field and is surprised by the walker that Carl had made fun of. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Now The Fun Really Begins!
9 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the eleventh episode of the second season of Walking Dead and it's incredible and one of the finest episodes yet this season. There is some shock value here. There is a scene that might surprise you, but then it won't surprise you if you know your horror well, but I'll let you watch the episode so you can truly see. The character development is great and this episode is filled with emotional depth.

In this episode, "Judge, Jury, Executioner," Rick and Shane decides to kill their captive, Randall at sundown despite Dale's protests. Meanwhile, Carl begins to act very strange and even encounters a walker, which will set off a chain of events.

Overall, this is an excellent episode that is made better by the shocking and overwhelming finale. We get great character development especially with Rick and his son. If the title is something to go by, something big is bound to happen. I rate this episode 10/10.
