Best Episode Hands Down. What an emotional quagmire......
That's exactly why it wasn't as good as it could be.
It went exactly where everyone expected it to go. Every step of the way. You can read this thread for all the posts for season 2 and see people call the plot line at least 2 weeks ahead. The thread reads like a plot synopsis on Wikipedia. The difference is, it was written before the episodes aired.
In other words, up to this point, season 2 has been one predictable cliche.
For me, the only reason this episode was any good was the characters finally did something.
The only reason it was the best hands down is the others were so mediocre. It's like they finally figured out that in order to boil water, you actually have to turn up the burner a little. The problem is, they never quite got it up to high except in the last few minutes.
Honestly, I was hoping Dale would put a round through Shane's head, especially when I saw him roll up with the rifle still with him. That would at least be something we didn't already call on this board.
Man, I miss season 1. Hopefully the last half of season 2 will be better. Otherwise, I don't know if I need to bother with season 3.
