It happens sometimes that you watch a TV show and in once instant moment you find yourself on the edge of your seat, anticipating the next act. That act came with a deathly growl from within the doors of the barn.
Moments previously, we had just seen Shane go slightly unhinged and single-handedly rip the wooden doors from barn. Out poured the walking dead, which Glenn had discovered during a previous episode in the hunt for some place to get amorous with Maggie, the Walking Dead krew had no other choice but to open fire & put the living dead out of their misery – with Hershel, their host on the farm, watching on in horror & shock as his dead family all met their makers…again.
All the biters were soon laid out after an epic gun show, all that remained was one single death growl. A growl that is more than likely going to change the face of the Walking Dead as we know it. Out of the shadows staggered a little dead girl, a little dead girl that for the best part of the early season the WD krew had been searching high & low. Welcome back Sophia.
As the krew stood, mouth agape, and watched as Dead Sophia crept slowly her blubbering mother. There was only one man who stepped up, sure & steady placed his revolver up against the forehead of Sophia & pull the trigger. That man was Rick Grimes.
The fact Rick could stand up & complete this grim job is all the more surprising considering that Rick was at fault for losing Sophia in the first place. There ended the Walking Dead mid-season finale. We know we have to wait till February 12, 2012 to find out the consequences of Rick’s actions. How will Hershel respond?
if you can’t wait until early 2012 for your next dose of Walking Dead, you can watch a sneak peak of the next episode ‘Nebraska’ below:
