The Walking Dead

I have hated on this show, I have been bored with it, and I have found it to be too dramatic for most of the series. However, tonight I must eat crow. This has quite possibly been one of the greatest episodes of any show I have ever seen. If nothing else, all the drama and the agonizing boredom has been worth it for this. I take back everything bad I ever said about the show because this episode alone has made it all worth wild. I suddenly have hope in this show again. That may not be a good thing though; one great episode can still lead to more of the same. Nevertheless I am back on board and will continue to stick with it no matter what now. This one episode has been good enough to validate all the time I have invested in the show.
Check that, is this woman seriously going to pine over the death of the other guy (Shane)? No matter the circumstance why would she have any reason to worry? I do hate the fact that this show will get so soap-operaish about its drama. I know from researching the comic that it is strongly implied that the baby is Shane’s. Nevertheless her behavior about his death at this point only makes things more dramatic when it is totally unnecessary. Also, why does Rick confess what happened with Shane to the group? Give me a break dude and drop the drama. He could have just as easily not told anybody what really happened and the show could have given us something else really exciting. Obviously the show will continue to deliver on pointless drama but with the potential to give us all this excitement again.
I like the lead-in into season 3 and now have hope for the show. This was a truly outstanding episode and I look forward to what else the show has to offer. Obviously the group is going to set up camp at the prison and they will run into a new enemy when we see them again.
