I saw it, loved it.This season is waaaaay better than the last one. Wonder how they're going to wrap this season up.

I think almost all of you missed the importance of the talk between Dale and Shane.  This is the forshadowing of Shane's soon to be fate.  It may not be at the hands of Dale but it's going to happen.

Remember how the comic series was compelling, well written and y'know... GOOD?  WTF happened here?

READ THE BOOKS!!!! Rick was fairly understanding of the whole Lori/Shane scenario & that was written by a man.  The fact that the episode was written by a woman was irrelevant.

Though it is unfortunate that they're only getting 10% of the story right.

 Don't mean to turn down a thorough review like this one, but you've got to dig to find gold, right?  The dig isn't over and I'm loving the setups thus far.  The characters are awesome to watch and the dialogue is spot on,e very step of the way.  The heightened emotional state of the characters is only getting more and more intense.  At this rate, the mid-season finale is sure to leave us drooling until next year, and the finale is going to be something else!  I can't wait for it.  As for this past episode...  Nice work and not deserving of the grade here.  Just when you think you can't develop these characters anymore, here comes Rick finding out about the pregnancy AND about his wife and Shane.  WHOA!  Although his reaction was typical Rick, sorting things out in his head, you know this is going to have lasting affects.  And with Shane as unstable as he is, are we to expect that maybe he wasn't truthful about why Rick was left behind?  Hmmmmm.

 Oh yeah, and Dale may have made asshead maneuvers, but that doesn't make the show worse.  It makes him a dimwit and extremely flawed.  That's what the core of the show's characters are.  Don't take it so personally.

 SPOILERS from comic

Forget the epic first season.  There is a reason for the change of pace and why our heroes are stuck on Walton’s Mountain.  It is the main reason Darabont was fired.  AMC cut the budget.  Kind of a big deal this summer (Darabont’s last episode was the season’s opener.  I believe that is the last
“epic” moment we saw this season.) 

I agree this was a pretty good episode.  I didn’t see anything out of character.  A few awkward moments, but the show has never been flawless.  If you recall, Lori was going to leave Rick because he wouldn’t get mad or argue with her.  It was nice to see him show some emotion, but it would be more out of character for him to lose it when his suspicions are confirmed.  Don’t worry, I’m sure it will come to a boil when he finds out his buddy is still carrying a torch (I will not even validate Kevin Smith’s  shallow observation.  Yes, this is a director whose many films portray deep, conflicted and flully fleshed out male/female characters. Has anyone actually ever seen one of his movies?) 

I do think it is time they started to focus a bit more on individual characters ala Daryl.  Give us some insight into what makes these people tick.  Think "Lost" without all the flashbacks.  Someone please make me care about T-Dog.

I know there are purist out there, but I say, forget the comic.  It is nice to reference the source material, but let the show evolve on its own.  I definitely don’t want to see it mimicking plots like Rick getting the axe, introducing a female Samurai zombie warrior, providing a Mr. Potato Head villain and an ending to a storyline that makes “The Road” seem like “Little Miss Sunshine”. That story was supposed to be powerful, but it read like a kid who was tired of drawing a picture and decided to wad it up and toss it on the floor.  Again, these stories can provide a nice spring board.  Keeping Shane alive and introducing Daryl are the best parts of the series.  Changes that were not in the comic.  Keep fleshing out the characters and even the most versed viewers guessing.

 Joe, Lori wrote down what she wanted Glenn to get for her at the store. If you watch the episode again, you'll see Glenn hand over that note to Maggie in the store. 

Scytheofluna, if you remember in the comic, Rick went WAY out of his way to "tie up loose ends" with the whole Lori/Shane/Rick triangle. Without spoiling anything for those who haven't read the comic, Rick went back to their original campsite, if you remember. That's not the mark of a man who is 'fairly understanding' of an affair. Even in the zombie apocalypse.

Finally, word has come through that one of the main cast members wants out of their contract because of what happened with Darabount. I just read about this tonight, and the article didn't say who, only that there were talks that it might be too late for them to back out. So there's that little monkey wrench to look forward to in the future.

Joe after re-reading your review you mentioned that they'II find Sophia, but someone will give up their life to save her .. this sounds exactly what could happen and my guess is Daryl will be the one to go.  If this happens I hold you responsible (just kidding)  .... but it would RUIN the show for me.

Any character could die off but Daryl, he's the only one I would trust, including Rick.
