'The Walking Dead' recap: A Rose By Any Other Name...

walking-dead-2.jpgCarl wakes up and first asks about Sophia's whereabouts. Oh yeah, her. We're supposed to still care. His parents lie unconvincingly, as the rest of the ragtag group of misfits finally arrives with camper and motorcycle in tow.

Herschel has a funeral for Otis, where people just pile rocks on an already sizeable stack. Shane looks like he wants to crawl under that pile, and shies away when asked to speak about the final moments. He spins that tale about how Otis sacrificed himself in order to save Carl. Patricia seems particularly moved by Shane's speech.

Herschel won't let Shane or Rick go out traipsing around the woods looking for Sophia as they are both injured and stubborn idiots who don't know when to slow down. So they try to occupy themselves with setting up camp, while Daryl takes off solo. Herschel tells all the gun happy folks that there are no weapons on the property, which Andrea and her itchy trigger finger don't take to kindly to. Glenn gets ready to go with Maggie on a pharmacy run. But before my boy Glenn can do that, he's dangled down inside a well as bait. See, Dale found a walker in the bottom of their well, and they can't just kill the thing because that would make everyone sick. So poor Glenn goes down to drawn the zombie out. Couldn't they have sacrificed Andrea instead? Naturally the dumbasses nearly lower Glenn right into the zombies clutches because of poor planning, but my boy Glenn still manages to lasso the beastie, even in the face of certain death. Glad someone finally found something for him to do. But leave it these idiots to screw even this up, as when they pull the walker up, he breaks in half and the well water still gets ruined.
