The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 2

There's a lot going on in this season of The Walking Dead.  I read that someone said the other day that Season 2 moved liked a Romero zombie, and Season 3 is straight-up 28 Days Later.  At the end of last season, Herschel's leg was getting hacked off and the crew spotted other people living in the prison.  These crazy prisoners have been living in the cafeteria for 10 months?!  They have absolutely zero idea what is going on outside.  Rick demands that they share their food and go live in another cellblock.  Harsh.

Um, also, how freakin' awesome is it that Adam Banjo from The Devil's Rejects is in this ep?!

When Rick tries to "transfer" the prisoners to a different cellblock, they run into some more walkers, and obviously the prisoners have no clue how to kill them.  One dude gets bit and this huge guy that sort of looks like the psycho from The Longest Yard kills him mercilessly.  Oh well, sometimes you have to do that.  However, you do not throw a zombie on Rick!  This is not a democracy anymore, motherfucker.  Rick splits a bitch up with a machete so that everyone knows he is not to be fucked with.

Meanwhile, Herschel is kinda dying.  You can't really just hack someone's leg off and expect it to be okay.  The fear is, of course, is that Herschel will die and come back and attack everyone.  So he needs to be handcuffed to the cot, and Glen gets assigned to kill him if he comes back.   Carol is not so concerned about Herschel, but really just worried about how she's going to help Lori deliver the baby with the minimal information that Herschel has given her.  Therefore, she takes off to practice a C-section on a female zombie.  She is a strange bird.

Lori admits that she's a shitty wife and not winning any mother of the year awards.  You don't say, Lori?  I mean, I would have totally wanted to sleep with Shane too, but I probably would have waited until my husband had been presumably dead for more than...ohhhh a few days?!  And I would have used protection, for chrissake.  Glen has been the only one on this show smart enough to pick up some condoms.  Even Andrea banged Shane and she's lucky she's avoided his zombie bastard child thus far.

Carl takes off to find the infirmary and returns with supplies.  Instead of saying thanks, Lori bitches him out for traipsing off without a buddy.  Herschel dies.  That's sad.  Oh, wait.  Lori does CPR and he wakes up as a human.  So, Herschel lives to fight another day.   And no Andrea and Michonne this week.
