Episode complete credited cast:


Carl is near death and with internal bleeding. He is surviving due to the successive blood transfusions, but Rick is getting weaker and weaker. Daryl can not sleep during the night since Carol is weeping all the time. He decides to take a walk with Andrea to seek out Sophia. Meanwhile Shane and Otis are short of ammunition and surrounded by a large number of walkers. They decide to split to take a chance against the zombies. Glenn and T-Dog arrive in the farm and T-Dog's wound is disinfected and treated. When Herchel Greene is ready to operate on Carl, Shane arrives, completely shaken, with the necessary medical supplies. Then he recalls how he was able to survive.

The Price Of Survival
23 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The third episode of season two of "The Walking Dead" starts with Shane shaving his hair off, then it takes us back to where the second episode left us.

Plot In A Paragraph: With Shane and Otis trapped in the school Shane shows just how far he is willing to go, to do what needs to be done. Daryl keeps looking for Beth while Rick and Lori stay by Carls bedside.

All of the new cast members are good, especially Scott Wilson as Hershal, Lauren Cohen as Maggie and Pruitt Taylor Vince as Otis. Of the regular cast Lincoln, Reedus and McBride are the strongest. For the first time this season, Sarah Wayne Callies is back to irritating the living hell out of me too.
