4. Didn't take long at all, I'm sure.

Rick's a cop, after all.

Serious zombie action tonight! I hope they can save that kid!

15. I think he became suspicious when...

...the "calmer" of the two guys kept prodding for information about the farm when he was repeatedly told that the farm was not an option. It's like he was too interested.

21. Grief.

He was drawn in to caring about folks (remember, he's the redneck survivalist) and now she's dead. He's withdrawing and grieving.

8. I think it's safe to say . . .

That Rick and Shane are going to have it out.

28. but, the way he dies

makes me hope the show at least follows that part of the comic...

SPOILER ALERT:
in the comics, when Rick & Shane are fighting, Shane ends up getting shot & killed by Carl. They bury Shane. Then, many issues later when they find out that the dead are still rising unless they're shot in the head or decapitated, Rick goes back by himself and digs up zombie Shane and shoots him in the head to put him out of his misery.

25. Lori - she's puttin' the mindfuck on rick

"You know your best friend that was screwing me while you were gone? He thinks I'm having his baby, don't trust him, he's too dangerous now, you're gonna hafta take care of him"

That shot of rick's stare at the very end was priceless.

9. Nice of Andrea to try to reason with Shane.

I felt bad for Carol, but it is obvious that Daryl is hurting as well.

Dale needs to chill out a bit.

Good episode all around.

10. There's more to Hershel than meets the eye.

I'm guessing he was a badass when he was younger, maybe ex-special forces. He shoots well and seems used to wartime like injuries.

12. Finally, some good zombie action

The scenes in the town were well done & had some good tension to them.

As for a Rick/Shane showdown:

swipe for a future spoiler:
The actor playing Shane was recently seen auditioning for a major part in another show - a clue that he is possibly finished after this year on The Walking Dead?

18. Lori and driving

20. Hate to say it, but I wanted Lori to die

I know she is a key element in the plotline and the show would suffer, but she drives me nuts! It is both the writers and the actor in my mind. She seems stuck on one emotion--freaked out anger-fear--and it just makes her not sympathetic to me. The writers really needed to give her a real reason for heading into town alone. She had no new info for the guys and it isn't like she had reason to believe they'd just hang out in town any longer than needed. Why did she think she needed to go, especially puzzling because she seems terrified always?

24. Same here

The Lori character sadly represents every bad female character stereotype: emotional, irrational, opportunistic, bad driver, useless damsel in distress, and now conniving too. I'm embarrassed for her, the writers could do better. I like all of the female characters of the show, but she is the last person on earth I'd want to be stuck with in a zombie apocalypse. (and bashing a zombie with plastic hubcap was a bit of a stretch too!)

23. I thought it was great until

Randall displayed his ineptitude at parkour. At that point it took a severe turn into absurdity. I literally laughed out loud, after this guy impossibly impales his leg in 'that' way on 'that' kind of spike,..... then his buddies take off (imagining Nelson from the Simpsons are his buddies.... HAHA)..... Then the team decide to save the guy who was just shooting at them,..... then they decide that pulling his leg off would cause to much blood loss,...... so better to amputate!,...... then they pull his leg off anyway,........ then it takes them 10 hours to drive home!..............WTF was that all about!!??

26. the jump in the time bothered me

The farm wasn't that far out from the town before - didn't Glenn & Maggie ride into town on horseback the first two times?

However,it was daytime last episode when the two guys from Philly entered the bar.

Then, it was dark when their buddies came looking for them - but, the two bodies were still in the same positions. Rick, Glenn & Hershel knew they had friends, so you'd think they'd have hid the bodies at least in the intervening several hours.

And, isn't the spike penetrating the lower leg like that almost impossible? If you fell down from the roof and it went through the back of your lower leg, the angle should have been much sharper. Personally, I would have shot the guy in the head so he wouldn't come back as a walker and then got the hell out of town.

27. The darkness

I was put off by that too. First I thought it was a change in director between episodes and the new one wanted to shoot it darker, but I understand that Greg Nicotero is directing this entire season after the firing of Frank Darabont.

I liked how it was shot, but it clearly jumped time without explanation. a quick plot devise like Rick saying to Hershal that he and Glenn would do a quick search for others and to stay put, then the next scene see Lori wake up in the dark. Then back to the bar and Rick and Glen return. Maybe I missed something. Anyway, it was still great.
