    To be fair, it's a LOT easier to write the beginning of a story and set it up than to sustain it. I'm not sure the first group of writers would do a lot better. I thought the hanging zombie and Shane's decision were both pretty unexpected and interesting.

    Everyone seems to think Shane did something horrible, but I think there's an argument to be made on both sides. If they had stayed together, it's likely they'd both have died, and consequently Carl would have as well. Why should they both die when Otis is more responsible for the situation? Honestly, I thought Otis would die, but because he would realize this likely endgame and stay to cover Shane. That said, Shane should have demanded that Otis give him the bag first. Then they could make a run for it and if Otis couldn't keep up it wouldn't cost anything. I wish we knew how far it was to the truck so that it would be clearer how likely or unlikely it is that they'd both make it before the walkers got them.

    I think you would be right if both men were fit. I think Shane did it not just so the walkers would be distracted by food - he did it because Otis is fat and couldn't run as fast. For them to stay together Shane would have had to move at Otis' pace and they both would have died. So whether Shane should have shot himself in the foot and let Otis run is a moot point.

    Considering Shane had a broken leg or whatever, I don't think that it made much of a difference. They were jogging at about the same clip.

    I have been watching the show and I have to agree that I didn't completely see the Shane sacrifice Otis story plot coming but then again I am not surprised. The guy isn't really "bad" but he does tend to look out for himself a lot but also mind you he did bring back everything needed for the boy's operation so he isn't that bad I guess...? He is a very interesting character to me where you tend to like and dislike him at the same time.

    It's one thing for Otis to have fallen and being left behind and another for him to be maliciously shot; at the very least he could have shot him in the head.

    I agree. Shane is immoral. As soon as his bff is in a coma, he's banging his wife and now with Otis. They possibly could have both made it back to the truck had they not parked so far away or whatever that shit was. It's one thing to forget where you parked the car at the mall, but when your life is on the line, you think that would be something you'd be aware of.

    I think Shane's character progression has been too inconsistent this season. I get the feeling that either the writer does not have a handle on how his characters are perceived, or he is arbitrarily manipulating them according to formula. Shane's recent behavior has essentially been psychopathic, but there has not been sufficient hints to make the development believable.

    Resurrection!

    They finally found Sophie and I can't say that I was surprised. Still, I'm not overly entertained by this show anymore. The faces Shane makes are just so nasty! Can't stand him. IN fact, there really isn't anyone on this show I do like, apart from the zombies. I would however like to see Shane pop the old man in the face and wipe off that dumb look he always has off. He's such a busy body! They're just all so annoying...

    Anyway, I wasn't aware last night was the "mid season finale", but something tells me I can wait until Feb (or later) for the remainder of the season.

    Now that episode was actually dramatic. I mean, the last three episodes have been so far somewhat boring compared to the first season; they always built up the episodes on Hershel's farm like someting exciting would happen but really it ended up being somewhat unsurprising. However the end of the previous episode was worth it.

    I kinda hope they keep Shane around not as a character (far too much of an erratic douche-bag to live through the whole of the series) but rather as a plot device to get things moving; he actually does get shit done, granted even though it's insane and psychotic.

    I'm glad Sophia is gone; too bad they didn't also get rid of Carl. As for Shane, all he's really doing is reinforcing my post-outbreak plan to shoot anyone and not help anyone who isn't in my group.
