The survivors arrive at Hershel's farm to camp and he asks them to disarm on his land. They find a walker trapped in a well and they unsuccessfully try to remove it without contaminating the water with its blood. Glenn rides with Maggie to a pharmacy in a nearby town and Lori asks him to bring a special item back for her. After getting the medical supplies, Glenn and Maggie have sex. Shane is disturbed and preparing to train the survivors. Daryl seeks Sophia alone and brings a Cherokee rose to give hope to Carol. When Lori gets her item, she uses it and discovers that her fear has come true. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

As Glenn is being lowered into the well we see a shot of the group letting the rope out slowly. The rope between Shane and the pump is slack. If Glenn were at the end of the rope between Shane and Glenn would be very tight. See more »


Hershel Greene: That's something, isn't it? It's good to pause for an occasional reminder.
Rick Grimes: Of what?
Hershel Greene: Whatever comes to mind. For me it's often God. No thoughts on that?
Rick Grimes: Last time I asked God for a favor and stopped to admire a view, my son got shot. I try not to mix it up with the Almighty anymore. Best we stay out of each others way.
Hershel Greene: Lori told me your story - how you were shot, the coma. Yet you came out of it somehow. You did not feel God's hand in yours?
Rick Grimes: At that moment? No, I did not.

Possibly The Weakest Episode Saved By Excellent Performances
23 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: With Carl recovering, led by Daryl the gang continue to look for Sophia. Glen bonds with Maggie while Hershal tells Rick the group needs to move on once Sophia is found.

A weak episode, possibly the weakest one so far. It's saved by excellent acting all round (except Sarah Wayne Callies of course). Especially Norman Reedus, his acting is superb as Daryl Dixon who is searching for Sophia and is desperate not to lose another member of the group. He shares a great scene with Melissa McBride continues to impress as Carol. Andrew Lincoln is as always great as Rick and he shares some great scenes with Scott Wilson as Hershel. It was also good to see Steven Yeun get some good screen time again too.

With the introduction of Hershel and his family, some of the main cast (T-Dog and Dale are the biggest victims) are taking a back seat. I hope that's not an indication that some of them are becoming expendable. Cos as we know "The Walking Dead" has a tendency to go all "Game Of Thrones" on us and kill off main characters.
