Storyline

Rick and Carl return to the farm but quickly realize that that they are being followed by by a large group of walkers. Mayhem ensues as the humans try to save the farm but they are eventually forced to flee realizing that the it is lost. Several of them do not survive the onslaught and others are separated into small groups.

Trivia

Jon Bernthal (Shane) came to the set to watch the shooting of the finale but since he was too emotional he watched from the woods on the farm property. See more »

Goofs

When the truck stops after Lori threatens to jump you can clearly see that the shots inside show there is a turning just behind the truck. However the long shot of it turning round has them on a straight road with no turnings. See more »

Season 2 is Underrated
14 October 2018 | by jordanterry-48958See all my reviews

I think season 2 is definitely one of the best and I don't understand a lot of the hate , sure they are some slower episodes like "Cherokee Rose" but the character development was really good and it contains some of the best episodes in the entire series , at least 5 episodes from this season alone can be in a top 10 best episodes ever list, "What Lies ahead" was a really great premiere, "Pretty Much Dead Already" "18 Miles Out" "Judge Jury Executioner" "Better Angels" and the finale were all fantastic episodes
