Other than that, this episode was pretty forgettable. Seemed more like a midseason filler episode rather than a season premier.

Hopefully they get their shit together.
Agreed. The exchange between Andrea and Dale I thought was very well acted where she blamed him for not allowing her to committ suicide.

I thought that was a very lacklustre premier, given what we'd seen last season. Definitely didn't knock my socks off.




Redneck the hillbilly is actually turning out to be a pretty decent character, even though he drives the loudest kind of bike one can drive. And I am kind of sick of every tv show having someone who knows how to track people in the forest.

They should have given blondie the gun, who cares if she offs herself? Her choice, plus one less mouth to feed.
The thing is...if Andrea shoots herself, the zombies will hear it and come after them.

And i wouldn't want to be in the car with her when it happens.


With the twist with Shane (divergent form the comics), i wonder if he & Andrea will hook up? That could help ground Shane into resuming his connection with the community -- and give Andrea hope.

I know that the story is about the characters more so than the Zombies but this episode was long in character devleopment and short on suspense which is what made season one so good IMO.

If redneck boy can get over his racial predispositions, Shane can accept the fact that he's gonna be second fiddle...

Darryl's been interesting....in the "real world" he probably would have been locked up by now, and written off. In the New World, he's actually a hero and vital to humanity's survival.

But i don't think he's totally gotten over his racism....he called Glenn "Short Round" in this episode...wonder if they're going to make him like Sawyer from Lost?

I dug this episode.

My only niggle: Southern Baptist churches don't display crucifixes.
Yeah, it seemed more Catholic....but while it's outside of the norm, Southern Baptist churches are supposed to be self-ruling, so they can diverge from "tradition". Uptown Baptist Church in Chicago is a Southern Baptist mission church...but for years under one pastor they did "Catholic stuff" like celebrate Ash Wednesday with a service, have the 7 stations of the cross, and other things like that.

So i noticed it, but didn't let it bother me THAT much (thought I AM a Trek fan on a messgae board).

It would have been funny, when they were in the church, when Rick was staring the Jesus statue, if Darryl had said something like "y'know, the reason why he's not looking very happy toward you is because he was the victim of police brutality..."
