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 »


Shane Walsh: Dale, shut up. Just shut up and give me the guns.
Dale Horvath: Am I gonna have to shoot you? Do I have to kill you? Is that what it's gonna take?
Shane Walsh: Eh. Yeah. That's what it's gonna take.

The Last Walker in the Barn
29 November 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Rick is dealing with Hershel to stay in the farm and he tells that Lori is pregnant to Hershel and to Shane. Hershel asks Rick to go with him to the woods to help him in to bring two walkers that are trapped in the quicksand to the barn. Carl asks Shane to stay in the farm to seek out Sophia. Meanwhile, the loudmouth Glenn discloses to the survivors that the barn is crowded of walkers, and the psychopath Shane decides to kill the zombies in the barn. He gives weapons to the survivors and releases the walkers from the barn. Then Shane, Andrea, Daryl, T-Dog and Glenn shoot all the walkers in front of Hershel. After the butchery, the last walker leaves the barn…

"Pretty Much Dead Already" is the most dramatic conclusion of "The Walking Dead" so far. This episode is about the lack of personality of Glenn; the truculence of Shane; the leadership of Rick; but mostly about the last walker in the barn. The final scene is heartbreaking, and gives the sensation of a punch on the stomach. People blame Shane, who is unable to control his temper, for what happened in the barn, but the great responsible is actually Glenn, who can not keep his big mouth shut. It is impressive how sad I was with this episode. My vote is nine.
