The antibiotic Bob was giving to the members of the group that were sick is Enrofloxacin, which is a broad spectrum antibiotic used in veterinary medicine. It is very similar to the broad spectrum antibiotic Ciprofloxcin (commonly known as Cipro) which is used for humans. See more »

Great suspense! Very good action, Hershel rocks my German heart:-]
11 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is a really good action episode indeed! I like these battle scene shooting scene with Carl and Rick.

It is a good decision to keep Glen and Sasha!

The end scene is like a announcement of the future development, almost in the tradition of Hitchkock. The Zombies are very well shown with a bit of splatter scenes, but not to much. This episode is a containing action we love!

Final thoughts: Hershel: A Glen: A Maggie: A Carl: A Sasha: A minor roles: B. I would be surprised if we can see another epic episode like the very first from season 1.

Please more episodes exactly like that! To me it feels like a 20 min episode and this is a good sign!
