Storyline

Glenn tells everyone about the walkers in the barn which adds to the tension among the group. Shane is still arguing they should give up any hope of ever finding Sophia while others refuse to leave. With Carl now healthy, Hershel tells Rick that they are to leave by the end of the week. Dale takes action to make their stay safer but it leads to a confrontation with Shane. While Rick helps Hershel rescue two walkers trapped in a bog, Shane prepares to storm the barn and dispatch the walkers. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

excellent - the best yet
25 June 2012 | by (Glasgow) – See all my reviews

I think this might be the only review I have given 10/10

Having enjoyed series 1 I launched into series 2 with gusto

After the first episode I hoped it would be better, and the second episode was. When Sophia was lost and then Karl was shot it was getting better but I had felt the last 4 episodes were losing their shine.

As with many second seasons time is spent on character development, not a bad thing, and it pays off here.

There are emotional push-pull moments and you can see things developing with several possible outcomes dependent on the director's/writer's wishes.

All I will say is look out for a belter of an end, how they will top this I don't know.
