The Walking Dead > The Walking Dead Review: What's in the Barn? > Comments Page 2
Sophia going missing is not the main storyline, it is just a plot device to keep the crew at the farm. Now that they've found "peace" and "paradise" at the farm, everything is going to go to shit when they find out about the walkers in the barn.
Hershel mentioned that humanity has been battling epidemics throughout history and this is just another one. He is waiting for a cure. But now we see the purpose of the CDC storyline last season. There is no cure. We, the audience, know that. So does Rick and his group, but Hershel is not going to believe them. Hershel is going to get violent and throw them out.
I can see a violent confrontation between Hershel and Shane where Shane just blows his cap off. I can also see Maggie join the group and speed off with them into the sunset. Season 2 has actually been really great, but I can feel that Season 3 is going to be even better.
Daryl must have competely sterized his arrows because if he is reusing them then the one he landed on should have turned him into a zombie.
I think the zombies in the barn are that old dudes family that he doesn't want to kill.
I'm starting to get annoyed by Rick. He's needs to start doing stuff more like Shane does.
Daryl should go back to him old self he reminds me of someone from Sons of Anarchy just a BA.
I cared for Sophie being found too early on but now it just annoys me. They better do something great with her character now if she isn't dead in some plot moving twist. Either she is dead and in barn or Herschel fed her to the dead in barn or the only way I care if she's alive is if she is completely changed somehow. She better come back a major freaking character or this show is going down the lame and predictable tract fast. Why do all this and then bring back a kid who is just going to be background noise? She dead in dramatic way is only hope I see. What are you going to do with her character now? Also, how the heck do they napalm Atlanta but that nursing home and all those residents survives?! Would that be possible? What am I missing with that because it looks like to me the writers completely forgot what they wrote last season?
So here is my list of the main characters of TWD who I would most like to see thrown into that nest of walkers in the barn down to the least I want to be tossed (didn't include the farm folks). Just food for thought - no pun intended.
1. SHANE - Easy choice for #1 and the sooner the better.
2. Lori - A close second to Shane.
3. T-Dog - Just don't care that much about what happens to this guy.
4. Andrea - Needs to dial down the whining and trying to act like a bad***
all the time.
5. Carol - care about her more than T-Dog, but not a lot more.
6. Dale - This is is where it starts to get tough. Like Dale but would
prefer him to be a little tougher in some ways. His apparent showdown with
Shane as seen in the previews will probably increase his likability
7. Glenn - really starting to like this character more, but he has been a
non-factor in so many episodes, I put him here on the list.
8. Carl - Hey, he's just a kid and has alr
My guess is also friends and family in the barn. Maybe Sophia is going to be part of that happy group?

Yeah that ear necklace is BA alright but did you see where he fell down and ended up with an ear in his mouth? :D
Daryl's is so awesome! That's why he is my favorite character on the show, because he's not in the comics. Such a wild card. His trophy necklace was so freaking BA! Between him pulling an arrow through his body and his squirrel sushi it was amazing. Plus the fact that his character, being a survivalist, is the one person truly cares about finding Sophia (which at this point has simply become annoying to the rest of us) is touching. Such a tender heart for someone who eats raw squirrel.
I won't go too much into detail about the other characters, because let's face it, there wasn't much going on this week. Yes, Andrea went commando on Darryl (she is my fave in the comics but on the show I find her horribly stale) and Lori's whoa as me routine was blah. Yes she messed up big time (we all know whose child it is based on the story timeline) so let's play it out and let the fleas bite. I do think Rick & Shane's conversation in the woods was a bit of foreshadowing.
The barn. Finally
Mostafa, it's all up in the air. I believe, because they let this go on so long, she has to be alive. Others believe that the length of time means she's dead. Thematically, it's dumb either way. They put Sophia in the flashback this week SOLELY because we've all forgotten what this girl looks like. I can only guess she's in the barn. Next week is the Mid season break, and if they don't clear this completely uninteresting plot thread up by then, then they are shitty story tellers. I already suspect that the network has decided to focus on Daryl (because of testing), rather than Rick, the supposed hero. I am beginning to suspect that Darabont's departure was related to this decision. Whether true or not, I am guessing that the show will divurge from the source material more and more after we find out the deal in the barn....(which I, and every other comic reader know already.)
All in all it was a good episode, i still think this season is lacking compared to the first though.
But at least they didn't have any zombies appear out of thin air in this one.
please help me...if they will find sophia?????please help me
So far Dale and Daryl are my favorite Characters... In the books its Michonne, Abraham and Andrea..(respectively)
Some of these characters are so annoying I wouldn't mind a zombie hoard chomping on them.
I agree with all the praises for Daryl. It's interesting how he has evolved since the series began from being one of the least likeable characters to possiblely the most, while Shane's likability has plummeted.
The previews showed Dale glaring at Shane with hatred in his eyes and saying, "I know what kind of man you are." Welcome to the club, Dale! Can't wait to find out what that scene is all about. I do recall Dale coming up in Shane in the woods last season as he was comtemplating shooting Rick (one of Shane's many shining moments). Anyway, they can't kill that guy off soon enough to suit me.
Here's a little info about the actor, Norman Reedus who does such a great job playing Daryl. I read a bio on him and he sounds like a real Renaissance man. He's lived in many different countries, including Japan, Great Britain and Spain, and made a living as a painter, sculptor, photographer and video artist. He was working in a Harley Davidson shop when he got his first acting break. Ree
Stephen posted an excellent idea. The writers should show part of an episode from Sophia's perspective. The women are by and large, except for Maggie, lame. If Andrea wants to off herself than do it. Laura, is a whore. Carol can only cry and she doesn't know how to use Dale's gun to stand watch- then learn how.Shane and Rick's wife get my goat, she's a widow and he's the best friend and they hook up that quick? If it were not for Daryl , Glen and Maggie I'd stop watching.
I suspect that the zombies in the barn are friends and family that were bitten/infected early during the epidemic. Herschel indicated to Rick that he believed that there could be a cure for this phenomenon. Based upon that brief conversation, and the discovery last night in the barn - I'm guessing that Herschel has hope via scientific cure for those poor lost souls in the barn.
Andrea pisses me off so much. I don't know if it's the actress's face or the character itself...
I think the zombies are in the barn to protect Hershel's in a warped way. If you mess up or don't listen to the boss he feeds visitors to the zombies..just a thought! Maybe the one in the well is an escaped zombie they could not get back in the barn after they let him out to get rid of a visitor, something is not right about this!
Yes, please finish the Sophie plot line, I cared so much in the beginning now, sigh.. I assume she is dead.
The show was so good last night> everyones right about the barn full of zombies and know one hears them. Daryl is definetly the best part of the story. Racist or not if I was in that group I thank God for Daryl. I'm tired of poor Andrea get over it already. I definetly see a love affair between Daryl and sophias mom. shanes attitude is really nerve racking dude you doing your best friends wife get over it, espacially since they paint has a player. anyway love the show.
Guys no one hears the zombies in the barn because they're not like wolves that will howl at the moon. It's dark and they can't see anything moving so they're in "DUH" mode. They don't have the problem solving skills to realize doors can be opened and they probably don't have the memory capacity to remember there's anything outside 10 seconds after they hear something.
They're like goldfish endlessly circling the bowl. Long as nothing disturbs them they shouldn't make much noise.
Daryl is my favorite character. I need more episodes like this one. Also, the missing girl storyline is boring me. Find her already! I no longer care that she's missing.
Was this suppose to be the Merle centric episode everyone was talking about?
i enjoyed last nights episode. Im a big fan of norman reedus(daryll) after i saw him in boondock saints and i would believe the character of daryll could survive a zombie invasion. I will admit there was a moment of saying i would quit watching the show if they killed him off and he makes his way back only for that stupid gunhappy wanch to shoot at him. Why cant she just listen and quit acting like a pissed off teenager who is rebelling and not want wanting to listen to the adults.she hasnt even came in to check on daryll and apologize.as far as rick and shane i think shanes giult is getting to him and he is ready to move on and leave his memories on the farm. I feel like maybe they should have done a better story than sophia running off but then we woouldnt have the season where its at i agree the women are all annoying except hershels daughter. betting all the zombies are all the people in the pictures on the fridge but why they would want to just keep them in the barn and poor glen
So there's a barn full of zombies and no one hears them?!?!?
Also, Daryl is beasting EVERYONE. He has officially become the reason I watch now.
