The Walking Dead – Season 2, Episode 9

Episode  9, 18 Miles Out

Summary:

The episode starts off with a horde of walkers hunting down Rick, Shane, and a few others, then jumps to Rick and Shane talking, 18 miles out on the road, playing backwards, telling how Rick and Shane end up in such trouble.

Things I loved about this episode…

  • I really don’t like Shane, but I did feel like his speech to Rick was real.
  • The walker in the distance as Shane and Rick are driving along teh road.  It was very creepy.
  • Lori telling Maggie that Glen will just have to Man Up.
  • The fight between Shane adn Rick.  I was holding my breath the whole time.
  • Andrea is such a bitch sometimes.  Telling Lori she was wrong to take the knife away from Maggie’s suicidal sister.
  • Rick’s through the mouth headshot headshot.
  • Rick leaving Shane behind.  I just wished he hadn’t come back fo rhim.
  • Zombie kill of the week – driving over the zombie’s head as they escape.

Things that I didn’t like about this episode…

  • Come on Rick – he was shagging your wife.  You really want to make friends with Shane?
  • “We have to use our knives more.” – Rick  I would have said we have to use our baseball bats more.
  • Who drives a hyundai in the undead apacalpyse.
  • I don’t think you can put a knife through a skull as easily as Rick does.  Beat the thing to death with the bolt cutters for gods sake.
  • Why would Shane go in the bus to look around? Its small, confined.  I know nothing was in it, but it just makes no sense.
  • Maggie’s sister trying to talk her into suicide.  It was just creepy and sad.
  • Rick telling Shane he’ll have to kill him if he wants to kill the boy.  How many chances is Rick going to give Shane?  I get that Shane adds some strength and combat knowledge, but what is the negative cost of his craziness?
