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 »


Glenn: I had to tell them!
Maggie: You did not!
Glenn: No, I did. Okay? I wanted to. You see, I forgot. Okay? I forgot or I stopped thinking about it or maybe I didn't want to think about it. I let them lower me into that well like it was fun, like I was playing "Portal." - It's a video game...
Maggie: Of course it's a video game.
Glenn: And then the pharmacy happened yesterday and I realized something. I forgot that they're dangerous. I don't care if they're sick people or dead people, they're dangerous. And then I realized ...

The ending is "pretty much good already."
11 July 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

During the breakfast, Glenn tells group about the secret in barn. He gets mixed responds from group and Shane is especially very angry. He insists they should move on to Fort Benning, because of the security issues of barn and the losing hope of finding Sophia.

Daryl tries to make another search for Sophia, but her mother Carol stops him, she doesn't wants him to risk his life. Daryl becomes very angry at her, but later tries to restore her hope.

Rick begs Hershel not to throw them away from the farm. Hershel has one condition, and he shows it to Rick in the muddy pond.

Dale tries to hides guns from Shane, but fails to do that.

As Rick and Hershel arrives, Shane arms everybody and pries open barn's door. Only to make a shocking discovery.

At first I think the story is again progressing very slow, but the ending save the whole episode. It ends very perfect, and it really surprises me. Character depth and improvement is good I think, but it is lovely to watch all characters' expressions to the event at the ending.

Ending save the episode. My vote is 9/10
