I'm addicted to this show! Last night's mid-season finale was crazy! You know that baby is Shane's!

I think she'll keep the baby so there can be some drama. Water break while running from zombies? Screaming baby when trying to hide? Is three too young to give a handgun class?

And Shane is getting all sorts of psycho and controlling and he's going to be all over that hot mess.

I think this might be my new favorite show. I enjoyed the second ep, although I didn't think it was quite as epic as the premiere, which had a really haunting quality to it. I feel like the second ep was more action-packed, but the premiere had more memorable scenes. For example, I loved the following scenes from the premiere:
  • Opening scene with little girl
  • Hospital scene
  • Zombie Wife peering through the peephole and turning doorknob
  • Morgan trying to shoot Zombie Wife juxtaposed with Rick putting Half Woman out of her misery
  • Final scene with Rick and the horse running into the zombie horde, and the final shot of the tank overrun with zombies

In the second episode, the only truly memorable scene for me was the one with Rick and Glenn trying to "hide in plain sight," although I'll admit it was pretty suspenseful!

Anyway, that's a minor quibble. I'm really eager to see where this goes. Has anyone read the comic book? I don't know how closely the TV show is going to adhere to the comic, but I read one spoiler about the comic book that was pretty crazy.

By the way, for those who think Andrew Lincoln (the lead) looks familiar, but can't place him, I just discovered that he was in "Love Actually" (the guy who's obsessed with his best friend's new bride, played by Keira Knightley). And apparently the actress who plays Andrea, the blonde woman in the department store crew, used to play Marita Covarrubias on The X-Files.

Thanks for a happy memory from the X-Files (which I loved, mostly).
I'm watching this season. None of it is as good as that very first episode. One of the best things I've ever seen. I just loved it. But I still like the show.
The whole farmhouse storyline is pretty creepy. And I'm thinking Shane has gotten pretty hot since he's gone kinda crazy. : )
And I hate these midseason finales and hiatuses (hiatusii?).

Forgot to say how much I liked this episode. Glad they killed the barn zombies. Crazy or not, Shane and Daryl are the ones keeping this group of people alive. They do what they gotta do. And I hope they are all forced to leave the farm, because the show would be pretty darn dull if they stay there. And I hope the guy from Lost shows up again soon.

I thought for the longest time that the scientist at the place that blew up whispered to Rick that his wife is pregnant, but from his reaction last week, and his actions this week, I don't think that's the case. Has anyone else noticed how much he looks like crap after giving blood...perhaps his sick? - like cancer sick? And that's the reason why he didnt over-react when Lori told him about her and Shane? Maybe he wants Shane to take care of her after he is gone??? just speculation...

Maybe it's because he makes me feel like I'm back home in GA, but I've totally got the hots for Daryl. I hope he doesn't do something asinine and ruin it for me.

I even watched a horrid Blade movie Mr. Spring put on the other night because he was in it. I felt I might weep when he turned out to be the bad guy and got blown to bits.

Also I guess I don't get why they had to be killed....they were contained/quarantined. *kanyeshrug*

So there is the possibility that Otis put her in there.

That part was sad.

And yeah, her dad was molesting her. Which is part of the reason I wished the her mom would have died already.

Is it bad that I hate all the women characters? They are either horribly pitiful or overcompensating.

I don't like Shane and even though it was necessary to kill the walkers, I didn't like the whole shoot em up scene. He seems like a loose cannon and anyone is next.

I do like Daryl though. I think he will be one of the last characters left.

The ending last night made me "Aww..." aloud.

I have a question though. How do people turn if they are usually zombie dinner when the walkers get a hold of them?

Another zombie fact...a zombie can only be killed if you get it in the head.

No I understand the idea, but I'm saying that most encounters are not being bit but being dinner. The victim rarely gets away.

I learned about how to properly take out a zombie in my Zombie 101 college course. But thanks for the tip.

I think the reason why she wasn't that decayed is that we needed to immediately recognize her as Sophia, since we haven't seen her for several episodes. We didn't remember what she was wearing, etc. Of course, we get the reaction shots from the other actors, but the big reveal has the most impact, so she needed to look like Sophia.

I was kind of glad they released and shot the barn zombies, but I wish there had been more reaction from Hershel and Maggie to the individual zombies. Clearly Hershel's wife/Maggie's mother was one of them, but they seemed to react the same to each zombie that was shot. It was like generic sad zombie death reactions.

I really, really hope Carol and Daryl don't become a romantic thing. I'd much rather see Andrea with Daryl--I liked the way they vibed off each other when they went looking for Sophia, and Shane is too douchey to be her love interest longterm. Plus, he's all obsessed with dumb Lori.

I really wish Lori was played by another actress.

i much rather see daryl stay single. i like him the best. in a zombie outbreak i would feel much safer with him. he's so sweet and lovable.

i'm not too fond of the female characters either. lori is annoying. andrea is confused. she whines about wanting to die, then when a zombie is about to take her out, she freaks out. MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!! and carol (who my sis calls the bald chick who let her daughter get raped) i want her dead as well. anyone who claims to be a mother but let their kid take abuse needs to be eaten by a zombie.

anythoughs or what happened to meryl (daryl's brother) or if the father and son from the first episode is still alive? what do you think the crazy scientist whispered to rick?
I keep waiting on Daryl's brother to show back up and I don't think it's gonna be pretty.

I don't understand the Lori hate! I don't think she's trying to keep Shane on the hook so she can get back together with him if Rick dies. She did have feelings for Shane before Rick came back into the picture, and she can't instantly turn those off. She just feels extremely awkward around him because it's an awkward situation.

Shane is not obsessed with Lori, he's a womanizer and a user at heart and that won't change.

Andrea is annoying to me with how she vacillates between hardcore badass and sad weepiness.

I truly don't see Carol and Daryl hooking up. That's more of a motherly/son relationship.

ETA: So.....was it completely wrong for Shane to shoot Otis? If he didn't, wouldn't both of them and Carl died? So it's just one death instead of three?

I also believe they wouldn't have the chance to save Carl if Otis didn't go with Shane and show him the supplies. On another hand, they wouldn't be in the situation if Otis hadn't shot Carl.
