Did You Know?


The two zombies that Rick, Hershel and Jimmy removed from the swamp and brought back to the farm and shot by Shane were played by father and daughter stunt performers. See more »


When Maggie and Hershel are talking in the kitchen, Maggie mentions that she was 14 years old when Hershel married Annette, who was Beth's mother. Unless Beth was born several years before Hershel and Annette were married (which is unlikely, given Hershel's religious views), Maggie would have to be at least 14 or 15 years older than Beth. However, Maggie's age is established as 22 and Beth is only about 5 or 6 years younger. See more »

Did Not See This Coming!
4 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the seventh episode of the second season of Walking Dead and it is by far, the best episode of the series. It's incredibly tense and is full of many surprises. I also must credit for acting mainly Jon Bernthal. Shane is slowly losing his humanity, and Bernthal does an incredible job in portraying that. If you're looking for action, well there is plenty of it here. There is less character development, and more action here and this will surely please folks who are tired from the previous slower episodes.

In this episode, "Pretty Much Dead Already," Glenn tells the entire group about the walkers in the barn which infuriates the group, but none more so than Shane. Meanwhile, Herschel doesn't want anything more to do with the group, so he tells Rick to be gone within the week.

Overall, this is an excellent episode and rather depressing, which I mean in a good way. It's action-packed and it's full of surprises. I was entertained, but I also got a little emotional. It's the best episode yet. I rate this episode 10/10.
