Storyline

Having found some of the prison inmates alive, Rick proposes that they clear out another cell block for them. The prisoners were locked in the cafeteria area by a prison guard when a riot erupted 10 months before and have been there ever since. They have no idea what has been going on in the outside world. Rick's first priority is to protect everyone in his group so when push comes to shove, he's prepared to do whatever is necessary. Hershel is still unconscious following the amputation and they are keeping a close watch on him in the event he should turn into a walker. Carl upsets his mother when goes off on his own. As for Carol, she realizes helping Lori with the birth of her baby will now fall on her shoulders. Written by Angelo

Another Great Episode!
17 September 2014 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the second episode of the third season of the Walking Dead and it continues the brilliance that episode one set the stage for. It relies just a tad less on the action, but more on the excellent characterization. There are some genuinely surprising and emotional moments as well. Things began to slow down, but now we get to see the beginnings of Rick and his new civilization within the walls of the prison.

In this episode, "Sick," Rick proposes an idea what to do with the prisoners they met at the end of last episode. Rick, Darryl, and T-Dog decide to help the prisoners get their own cell block while they split the food 50/50. But Rick makes clear he will have to do what is necessary to ensure the survival of his group. Meanwhile, Herschel remains in critical condition after the amputation of his leg. Carol comes to the conclusion that she will have to deal with Lori's pregnancy, now that Herschel is unable to do so.

Overall, this is another fantastic episode that continues the success of the first episode. This makes for a promising season and I'm eager to see what lays in store for us. I'm also eager to see what will happen between Lori and Rick as their relationship is crumbling beneath our eyes. A fantastic character-building episode with a little gore mixed in. I rate this episode 10/10.
