Otis never heard of Sophia nor did he have a chance to tell anyone he had caught a little girl zombie since he was killed. Could easily assume that Hershel's group didn't know of Sophia having been brought in. Plays off of the fact that Shane killed Otis and kinda set all this up by doing so.

    That whole episode was intense.. lol.. the Shane scenes I was sitting there like "Why is my heart racing?" lol not to be dramatic but I almost thought I was having a panic attack.

    Not that it was all great. I think the beginning was just ok. I really liked the end though.. it was like a punch in the nuts to the point shane was trying to make throughout the whole episode which was "Rick cant do what needs to be done".

    Can't wait till the second half.. you know now everyone is going to want shane gone and he's going to be pissed because rick still came out on top.

    Shane's a liability, his skill with guns notwithstanding. Dale should have blasted his ass right in the chest and said he felt threatened with the guns there, all alone. Bring up his Otis theory, whatever. Shane is not the dude you want around during a zombie apocalypse, because he's more dangerous than the zombies.

    It seems odd to me that during all the time in-between Carl being shot and Shane and Otis leaving for the medical supplies, that they never mentioned Sophia at all. None of the farm folk were curious what they were doing wandering around the woods? And I know they were worried about Carl at the time, but I still think they would have asked people that live in the area if they'd seen a little girl wandering around by herself.

    If they knew the whole time that they had her in the barn, and Herschel made them keep quiet, then that'd be something different altogether....

    Still a pretty damn good episode though, can't wait to see Herschel's reaction to all of this.

    After the wildly successful first season, Showtime bought out the show completely and cut the budget in half. Either the director or the producer who was in charge had to be let go because they couldn't afford him. They also decided to do 12 episodes instead of 6, on half the budget - so its no surprise that the show is going downhill. The special effects are horrible and now each episode has 30 minutes of feelings and emotions and about 2-4 minutes of actual zombies (lower quality zombies at that).

    When I read the Showtime blooper and the head dude left the project, I had a bad feeling that they weren't going to pull it off. After episode 6, I have lost faith and lost interest - I came here for the zombies. Who the hell shifts a post apocalyptic zombie survival show into a drama? Men don't want drama, women do. And if women are going to watch drama they will probably choose zombie-free drama. So who the hell is Showtime trying to appeal to? Whoever is in charge now is going to submarine the series - all the Walking Dead fan boys will soon see you're running out of juice.

    Here are my future predictions:
    Episode 8 - Morality of Reproduction in Apocalypse, one zombie kill on farm
    Episode 9 - Crazy Man Kills Someone else 'to survive' - his morality slips
    Episdoe 10 - Farmer daughter pregnant - asian dude dies - emotional grippage
    Episode 11 - Gun Girl & Crazy Cop have angry sex more and run away, but baby is crazy cops (more morality issues)
    Episdoe 12 - Titanic Moral Cliffhanger, maybe 8-9 minutes of actual zombies, wait 12 months to hear the show is canned.

    The End. GLHF Showtime.

    What are you even talking about dude? The Walking Dead is owned by AMC, not Showtime. And did you watch the first season? It was hardly non-stop zombie killing every episode - I think there was one episode (3rd or 4th, not sure) with zero zombies in it at all. It's called a slow burn - if I wanted to see 55 minutes of people shooting and chopping up zombies I could watch any number of zombie movies out there.

    To me, this show is a lot like both Lost and Battlestar Galactica - two great dramas that both go beyond their regular 'genre.' Those shows (and TWD) are about a group of people thrust into a set of extreme circumstances, and then seeing how the choices they need to make affect and change them. Just like a spaceship or a mysterious island were the setting in BSG and Lost, a zombie apocalypse is the setting here - it's never been the 'point' of the show here, just like spaceship battles and running through the jungle were never the 'point' there.

    Frank Darabont was fired...most likely because his direction for the story was not popular amongst others. Besides Vatos, first season was stellar.

    I don't know weather to be disappointed that Sophia was in the barn or not. I was fully expecting her to be a geek when she was found though. I am trying to put the timeline when she ran off to when they found her. What is it, like 3-5 days tops? As mentioned in an earlier post, about Carl's fast as hell recovery. Even if Otis did the Geek trapping, Hershel at the very least would of known about her. "His farm, his barn" ect ect. But hey, I guess it works out in the end. I did like the Talking Dead afterwards, Was nice to have a little filler on the episode, I was kind of hoping that they would of showed the alternative ending. But don't remember if they actually shot that, or just talked about it.

    At any rate, I can't wait until Feb now. Hope they do a Webisode on her after she left the creek.

    Man this was a touching episode. Rick shooting Sophia made me stop breathing for a moment. That scene had so much emotion. Everyone was stunned when she appeared.Yet rick took the responsibility as a leader should do.

    Hey now, I do not. But I understand what you mean. I have the exact same sentiment - I'm sick of Days of Our Zombie Lives, I wish all the women on the show would just get eaten or something because they're honestly just annoying at this point. I don't care who impregnated who, or who's screwing who. I mean yeah, character development is an important part of any story but this isn't character development - it's soap opera.

    I'd like to wait until the end of the season to cast judgment. Perhaps they are being lax at the beginning because of their low budget. At least that's what I'm hoping. Praying things move along soon..

    At least last night's episode is moving things along - this Sophia arc has gone on way too long. Shoulda learned how to kite. :P

    Was rather interesting, as Sophia lives in the comics still (I think, was when I was last reading them) while Shane had died way back. So it's definitely different for sure.

    Wondering what's going to happen moving forward, I personally don't see Carol making it out of season 2, she has no real purpose since her daughter's now dead, so likely going to be eaten by a zombie or something to write her off. The truth about Otis is eventually going to come out I think, and hopefully Shane will get what's coming to him; I mean seriously, leaving him as bait like that, not to mention he's rather unstable, so likely he'll finally make good on his threat of leaving or end up dying. And of course, there's still some subplots from season 1 still, like where Merle is (if alive), what secret Jenner told Rick, even the status of Morgan and Duane from the first episode.

    Actually, it's AMC not Showtime. You don't really seem to know what you are talking about.

    Great episode in my eyes. Can't wait for february.

    So unanswered questions that I guess we have the next couple months to debate around:

    What did Jenner whisper to Rick
    How will Herschel respond to Barnegeddon (somebody coined this earlier in the thread, I like it)
    How will Rick respond to what Shane did
    How will this baby thing play out
    Will Carol be killed off
    How much longer will they be at the farm

    Tons more I probably missed, but you get the general picture.

    I think it's great the show is going in a different direction then the comics. We have comics and then a complete copy remake of them into a show? How freaking boring. We would know all the story line. Not worth watching if you already know what is going to happen (Kinda like Game of Thrones, I knew the story line).

    The Sophia bit was very emotional. Top 3 TV emotional moments for me. I would rank it second (1st is Lost's 'I died too'). I couldn't sleep after seeing that seriously. Hit me really hard. It was a proper case when you really start questioning yourself. Very deep moment. Rick is the man. All season he was shown to be a pussy. But when it mattered, he stood up. Great leadership really.

    I do agree that episode 3 and 4 were absolute waste of a time. But the remaining 5 episodes were awesome. I think the rest of the episodes will be much awesome and lot of thrill.

    They can make the show run a little faster though. 4 months to wait for half is season is being very cheap. I wish it wasn't on AMC, but Showtime or the best HBO! HBO would have made the show a blaster. Might even have taken over Game of Thrones!

    I honestly though of that too. I would have killed him. He wants to put about 15 lives at stack just because he want his farm to be 'gun free'. What an idiot. But you can't deny the old man's acting. Freaky emotions he showed during barnageddon. Well done, I applaud you sir!
