Carol Peletier: You need to know something. You did more for my little girl today, than her own daddy did in his whole life
Daryl Dixon: [Dismissively] I didn't do anything Rick or Shane wouldn't have done.

A good "Daryl" episode..
11 July 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Daryl makes an alone search for Sophia again. While searching, he had an accident, and now he must both rescue himself from his situation and deal with his brother Merle's vision taunting him.

Glenn makes a shocking discovery about Lori, and she begs him not to tell anybody.

Shane thinks they should give up looking for Sophia and head to Fort Benning. Although Rick thinks opposite at first, later he comes to term with him. Lori had an angry talk with Shane.

Glenn goes to barn at midnight, and again he makes another shocking discovery.

This episode is about Daryl I think. Daryl is my favorite character in this series, and this episode is dedicated to him, I think. Apart from that, the story progresses nicer than the previous episode and It is funny that Glenn makes two discoveries in a row. Ends with a good climax.

My vote is 8/10.
