    If it wasn't for "The Talking Dead" I don't know if I would still be watching.

    Yes. I actually love Daryl and I'm not too fond of the 'cuello rojo' types. He just needs to stay far, far away for his crazy brother.

    10 minute payoff to the season. Yay. For those who say it's character development, couldn't they have just developed everyone in one episode? Who has developed. We knew Shane was wacko early when he killed Otis. And Andrea went from hopeless to a gunslinger. Other than that, who cares, and why did it take 6 episodes? Nothing deep here.

    Edit: The aol piece linked earlier pretty much sums it up.

    I think that was the best hour of WD this season!

    The standoff with Shane and the old guy? For a moment I thought the old guy might shoot Shane.

    And the finish with Sophia?! That was awesome. All this time I just assume they were going to do the mega happy story line where the child is saved, to end it with her a zombie and a bullet in the head, well, that's just fantastic story telling.

    And Herschel keeping zombie Sophia from the rest of the group when they are risking their lives to find her? What an jerk.

    No proof that he knew that was Sophia or even knew she was in there. As previously mentioned, Otis was the one rounding up the zombies...

    Overall, enjoyed the entire season, but the ending to this one totally caught me off-guard. Loved it...

    It's funny how on tv, guys claim parentage of their married ex-girlfriend's unborn child when in real life it's "Not mine! I'm outta here!".

    You may still get your wish next season; this season showed us flashbacks how Sophia and Carl met and what a D*** Sophia's dad was with sharing food. There's always the chance of these types of 'back storytelling' for some of the other characters, Merle, Daryll, T-Dog, Maggie, Glen etc.

    I agree. Herschel wanted them off his property as soon as they found Sophia.
    If he knew she was there, he would've kicked them out when Carl recovered.

    If Herschel believed them to still be people, then he wasn't really that moral of a person anyway. He let them roam around in a cramped barn and fight each other for chicken meat. He didn't dress their wounds or offer them protection from the elements sufficient for the winter. I'm not sure about the physiology of zombies but I assume that they sometimes defecate after eating a large meal. That barn is probably messy.

    I liked this half-season and I think they do a good job of making Shane borderline. He makes points that are worth making and does things that someone in his position might do without being considered psychotic or evil (except for the drunken near-rape in the CDC). I think Dale put it best... he is the type of person meant for this world now. It reminds me of The Road.

    Can I just copy/paste your entire post as mine? I couldn't have put my exact thoughts into words better, especially the part I bolded.

    Herschel seemed to know every other zombie from neighbors, to neighbors kid's boyfriends, to family, so I find it hard to believe he couldn't put it together that the kid zombie he couldn't identify was the one they were looking for.

    Even if Hershel didn't know the lady feeding the zombies should have. There were only a dozen or so. Would be hard not to notice a new little girl.

    And how/why would he know there was a kid zombie in there? They hadn't put any new zombies in there since Otis and it's only been about 2-4 days since that.

    And why on earth would he keep it a secret? He want's these people out of there ASAP.

    Has it? The kid got shot in the gut has some freaky healing abilities, or it's been at least a couple of weeks.

    It's been a week at the very most since Sophia ran off. If it had been two plus weeks I could see Shane's side of things regarding ending the search. Five or six days it's iffy but there could still be hope.

    He didn't know the male zombie that they captured in the river. He knew the female, but said from the male's clothes, he may have worked somewhere that Herschel use to go.

    Hershel runs the place. Why wouldn't he know what is going on in the barn, since he's the one who wants to collect zombies anyway? You don't think Otis would report to him when he adds to the collection? Especially adding a little kid?
