Awesome Episode!
31 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the second episode of the second season of Walking Dead and it's a dandy. It's not as good as the opener, but a worthy follow-up for sure. Just like the opener, it finely balances the action and the drama. This episode has me hanging on the edge of my seat throughout. The major zombie action doesn't show up to near the end, but it nicely sets up what's going to happen next.

In this episode, "Bloodletting," Rick and Shane desperately get Carl to the farmhouse of Hershel Greene to save Carl after he got shot by accident by Otis, a resident of Greene's house. Meanwhile, Shane and Otis decides to go to the local high school to get supplies needed for Carl's operation.

Overall, this is a very good episode. It's often dramatic, tense, and even emotional at times. The acting is very good here as Andrew Lincoln and Jon Bernthal steal the show. But there are some good guest appearances by Pruitt Taylor Vince and he was pretty good. This episode ended on another well-done cliffhanger. I rate this episode 9/10.
