Great Episode!
5 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the eighth episode of the second season of Walking Dead and it's a very good and rather depressing episode. The action takes it down a notch from the previous episode, but there is still some action to be had. The character development is great, despite some people grumbling about Lori's character development.

In this episode, "Nebraska," Herschel demands Rick's group to leave after their actions and he starts drinking again and disappears. Meanwhile, Rick and Glenn decide to find him despite protests from Lori and Shane. After awhile, Lori decides to head out to find Rick.

Overall, this is a very good, tense episode that is high on character development. For action fans, we even have flipping cars to be seen. We also get to meet some new characters, characters that will be familiar with people who've read the comic book. I rate this episode 9/10.
