When Glenn, Dale, Andrea, Daryl and Carol are back together discussing the situation, the plot suggests the time of day is nearing dusk, about 7:00 or 7:30 pm, but Daryl's shadow is short, suggesting the sun is still high, enough for the time to be around 3:00 pm. See more »

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
