Shane arrives and tells her that Rick is in the hospital because of what happened on the road. In the present, Rick runs seeking help, carrying Carl in his arms while Shane follows them with the hunter, Otis, who had accidentally shot Carl. They reach a farm and Carl is attended by an old man called Hershel. He finds that the bullet has shattered into six fragments and he needs Rick's blood for transfusion to Carl.

One of Hershel's daughters rides a horse to find the searchers and brings Lori to the farm. Meanwhile Dale finds that T-Dog's arm is badly infected and he needs antibiotics.

Quotes

Dale Horvath: Listen, your veins are very discolored. You got a hell of an infection there. You could die from blood poisoning.
T-Dog: [laughs] Oh, man. Wouldn't that be the way? World gone to hell, the dead risen up to eat the living and Theodore Douglas is done here by a cut on his arm.

Storey Setting & Character Building Over Zombie killing
23 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The second episode of season two of "The Walking Dead" starts right were the first episodes cliffhanger left us.

Plot In A Paragraph: Shane goes on a dangerous mission for medical supplies. Rick and Lori keep a vigil by Carl's bedside at a nearby farm, while Daryl keeps looking for Beth.

We meet some new characters, Otis (Pruitt Taylor Vince), who is living at a nearby farm with his partner Patricia, Hershel (Scott Wilson) and his daughters Maggie (Lauren Cohen) and Beth (Emily Kinney)

All the new members of the cast look to be good editions and maybe the farm could be a safe haven for them as it defiantly appears tranquil and blissful. An actor I have hardly mentioned is IronE Singleton as T-Dog. Which is unfair as he is a valuable member of the group and a very good actor, who brings a lot to the table. I this episode paranoia kicks in with him as he seems himself and Dale as the most Expendable of the group.

We also get a hint at a "Breaking Bad" cross over in this episode
