"This life now, you kill or you die. Or you die and you kill."
If there is one thing that desperately needs to be addressed about The Walking Dead, it is the series' tendency to just deliberately put off important plot elements in an episode. Instead, it favours pushing off these stories off to future episodes.
"Freeing that prisoner -- more important to you than Carl?"
Better Angels is probably the weakest episode of the entire series so far. It had its moments, and some of it were good, but the way it ended was just awful. The irony of Carl shooting Shane was fine.
"Heaven is just another lie. And if you believe it, you're an idiot."
Judge, Jury, Executioner, is a coming of age story focused on Carl, that takes place in the middle of what the group wants to do with Randall.
"I went to school with Maggie, for God's sake."
There are two stories that were told in 18 Miles Out. At home, Beth has recovered enough to wish that she had not. Saddenned by what the world has become, she tried to sneak a knife to kill herself, but was found out by Lori.
"You killed the living, to protect what's yours?"
Nightfall has arrived, making the perfect setting for a zombie survival horror scene.
"I hear Nebraska's nice."
From the moment Rick carried his injured son to the farm, Hershel has done nothing but good for Rick's group. He provided food, shelter, and saved Carl's life. In exchange for his generosity, Otis was killed, and Shane's loose cannon behaviour left Hershel and his family devastated.
