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

Did You Know?


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 Rick and Hershel return to the farm with the caught walkers, Shane and the group are gathered in front of the house. T-Dog is just standing behind Shane over his left shoulder and T-Dog's right arm is folded behind his head. Right when he says "Oh shit," the camera changes and T-Dog has moved further away from Shane with both arms at his sides (with no time to change positions). See more »

Man That Hit Me Hard

Plot In A Paragraph: With Lori's secret revealed, a bigger problem arrived when Hershel's secret also gets out, and with him refusing to acknowledge the worlds new reality, the group are divided over what happens next.

Melissa McBride is excellent as Carol, she shares a lovely scene with Norman Redus Daryl early on, and the is wonderful at the end. Jon Bernthall is superb as the increasingly unstable Shane. Jeffrey DeMunn shines again as Dale, as does Scott Wilson as Hershel, whilst Sarah Wayne Callies is the most annoying character in the show as Lori. Whilst Andrew Lincoln is at his finest as Rick who is just desperately trying to keep it all together.

A good episode before a heartbreaking bloodbath at the end.
