Storyline

Tensions are rising at the Greene farm. Shane thinks they've spent way too much time looking for Sophia and thinks they should abandon the search. Hershel Greene thinks the visitors are becoming too familiar and taking his hospitality for granted. He particularly warns his daughter Maggie not to get involved with n. Daryl sets off on his own to search for Sophia but an unexpected encounter leaves him seriously injured. Lori has confirmed that she is pregnant but hasn't told anyone. Glenn can't quite figure out what Maggie's feelings are and tries to get advice about women from Dale. Glen manages to get Maggie to meet him in the barn late that night but isn't prepared for what he finds. Written by garykmcd

Daryl
17 November 2011 | by (Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico) – See all my reviews

Having seen all the episodes from season one to this episode, it seemed as if the show was going off track, especially in comparison with season one. With this episode the previous successful blending of elements has returned. Obviously, due to the situation, the characters are in the worst kind of danger. It's important to ratchet up the tension enough to reflect what the characters are up against. Chupacabra does a good job of doing that through having Daryl out on his own searching for Sophia and later Glenn discovering what's inside the barn. It's interesting to think why they have locked up walkers in the barn. That will come out probably in the next episode. Daryl is the best character, willing to brave being out on his own carrying on the search for Sophia. The dream sequence of him and his brother, who disappeared after season one, is TV of the highest quality.
