MAJOR MAJOR SPOILER


stop reading if you don't want to know what happens in the next episode



















seriously
























it summarizes the entire mid-season finale



























well all-righty then


















Quote:
The Walking Dead
There's an extremely detailed summary of the midseason finale, "Pretty Much Dead Already", supposedly leaked by an employee of FX UK, which airs the show in Britain. You can read the whole thing at the link, but here's the second half, which features a major revelation about one of the season's big mysteries in the final paragraph:

Quote:
“Pretty Much Dead Already”

Episode opens with Glenn revealing the presence of the walkers to the rest of the group, who promptly proceed to freak out. Maggie becomes angry with Glenn for not keeping the secret and ruins his hat in retribution. Dale gives Glenn his trademark bucket hat as a replacement. Maggie later makes a plea to Hershel for the group to stay. She and Glenn also have an argument about the walkers, after which they eventually admit their feelings, kiss and make up.

Rick and Hershel argue, with Hershel demanding the group leave within a week. Rick uses the my-wife-is-pregnant card, but Hershel’s not persuaded. Shane also wants the group to get the hell out of there because of the walkers in the barn, but Rick uses the same excuse to cool him down. However, Shane then becomes convinced that Lori’s baby is his.

Dale takes off with Shane’s guns to hide them in the swamp. Shane tracks him down and demands he give the guns back. Dale points his rifle at him and threatens to shoot. However, he backs down at the last moment, since he has no wish to become like Shane: he reveals that he knows Shane shot Otis and lied about what really happened. Shane heads back to the farm with the guns.Hershel has Rick help him and Jimmy try to fish some walkers out of a nearby pit of quicksand and lead them into the barn with snare poles. He says the group can stay on the farm if they agree not to kill the walkers. They arrive at the farm about the same time Shane emerges from the swamp and hands out guns to other members of the group…

Shane sees the snared walkers and goes berserk. He yells at Rick and Hershel as they guide the walkers towards the barn, with the rest of the group and people in the farm looking on. He pulls his sidearm and unloads it in the chest of one of the walkers, demanding to know "Could someone who's alive just take that? Why is it still coming?" Hershel has no answer.

He finishes off the walker with a headshot, grabs a nearby pickaxe and breaks open the barn door. Walkers pour out, T-Dog, Daryl, Shane, Glenn, and Andrea form a line and open fire. Once the dust clears, one more walker emerges. Sophia. Rick finally steps up next to the others, pulls his six-shooter and kills Sophia with a shot to the head. End episode.

The link also includes a screencap, supposedly from episode seven, that seemingly bears out the big reveal. [Dancing Silhouettes]

Many members of the cast reportedly wanted to leave the show in the wake of showrunner Frank Darabont being fired, and one cast member reportedly got her wish and was released from her contract... except, so this rumors goes, the person then changed his her mind, and it's unclear whether he or she will stay or leave. So... not much to go on here, and nothing may ultimately come of it, but I suppose this increases the odds that a main character will die or otherwise leave the show before season's end. [TV Line]



this corroborates the screen grab posted earlier

i dont like spoilers but i always end up reading them
it was like that for every lost episode, but i still enjoyed them

and i like someone else said it sucks if finding sophia is the ending of the midseason... i expected much more... something like shane shooting dale, or some stuff with soldiers,helicopters or shit like that, or anything with merle, or the black guy and his son ( wtf happened to them btw? he never reply on the walkie)

one thing that always bothered me...we always see zombies tearing their victims to pieces and eating them. in all the zombie movies people who get bitten and manage to escape slowly die and then they get turned...so how come there are so many full bodied zombies out there? did they all get bit and managed to escape and then turn later? unlikely. it seems to me like someone like sophia would be torn apart before she could even be turned.

Only logical explanation is, these cities were populated by millions and hundreds of people. I don't think we've seen that many zombies to be honest. Even when they were in the city and got mobbed, it wasn't a decimal of the living population prior to the zombie apocalypse.

Having said that....

You do make a good point in regards to Sophia.

I can understand a grown up surviving an attack from a zombie (maybe even 2), but not a little girl.

For the zombies that are out there, the logical explanation of their being is they weren't mobbed, and/or they managed to barely get away.

Reading the spoilers weren't much of a spoiler to be honest. Everything that was described was rather predictable....... although it would've been more plausible if Sophia wasn't a zombie.

Btw.... when did Sophia end up in the barn? how?

Did Herschel know about her? did he bring her in? if so, why didn't he tell them? to cover up his barn full of zombies? if the girl snuck in herself, why didn't she just go to the house? didn't she notice the living family? or the lights inside (if it was dark?) and if she did climb her way into the barn wouldn't the zombies rip her apart?

Season 2 has been a big disappointment to me. It like all the character's personalities are being exaggerated by the actors, everything feels forced, and there's very little flow. I loved the first season, but this one has just been a big annoyance thus far.

Just my $0.02.

exactly my point, she would have to climb up and force her way in, cuz the front door is locked up and padded with chains..

and this is about the spoiler, why didnt they just shoot them from above? LOL

Something that I mentioned, but why didn't he tell them about her?

He wants to get rid of them, so he has a reason to tell them. They've been using their resources to save her, risking their lives so he at should've mentioned something.

I understand he was trying to cover up the barn, but still.
