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

Goofs

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 they hit me hard!!!
28 November 2011 | by phoenix2149See all my reviews

This is probably (probably, definitely) the best ending to an episode I have ever seen. This is "hope" gone wrong, in every direction! This is what I expect in an excellent horror/drama feature.... period! This is a fantastic series!

The digital jury decides it should be at least a 10 line text, so I will try to do it.

Since I watched the series I was a bit cautious, the acting could be a bit better at times, but kept curious of the characters involved. Felt the hope, anger and disappointments. It grew at me, the people felt real. I was disappointed in the possibility it would have ended at season one.

This is the one of those moments you seldom feel (and people seldom appreciate!!!!) like the ending of say.... The Myst, or The Road all together!

This ending lets you feel a world without hope, losing hope.....
