Glenn, Axel, and Oscar dig three graves (apparently for Lori, T-Dog, and Carol). Later, when Daryl puts a Cherokee Rose on one of them, all three have been filled in. At that moment, only one of them (T-Dog) could have been buried. See more »
[Daryl cradles Rick's baby in his arm]
She got a name yet?
Not yet. But I was thinking maybe Sofia. Then there's Carol, too. And... Andrea. Amy. Jacqui. Patricia. Or... Lori. I don't know.

This is the fifth episode of the third season of the Walking Dead and though while nothing much happens, it's still a rather good episode with some interesting story lines. This is a particularly good episode when it comes to everyone dealing with the aftermath of the previous episode. There is some action, but I feel like there are some intriguing story lines developing.
In this episode, "Say the Word," Rick gets bogged down in his grief so he heads inside the prison taking his anger out on the walkers. Maggie and Daryl head out to find supplies for the baby, or else she will perish. Finally, Andrea and Michonne part ways after Michonne had enough of the place and Andrea witnesses a new sport that may not be to her liking.
Overall, this is a good transitioning episode as we see one event which will ultimately lead up to another. There is less action here, but the stakes are still high. We can feel the emotions of the characters, especially with Rick. This episode also has a very effective cliffhanger. I rate this episode 9/10.
