The Walking Dead Season 2 episode 7

Sunday night had the mid-season finale of season 2 of The Walking Dead and wow what an ending. The episode was named "Pretty Much Dead Already" and we finally get to see what happened to Sophia. *Spoiler alert* Do not read on if you have not watched the mid-season finale yet.

Here's a quick summary of what happened in the episode. Glenn tells the group that the barn is full of walkers. They check out the barn and Shane wants to kill all of the walkers, but Rick wants to talk with Hershel first before clearing the barn. The group has an argument about staying or leaving the farm.

Dale tries to warn Andrea about Shane but she doesn't listen and tends to agree with the way Shane is handling things. Rick tries to talk with Hershel but Hershel wants them to leave the farm by the end of the week. Rick tells Shane that Lori is pregnant and Shane tells Rick that they need their guns.

Shane talks with Lori about her being pregnant and Lori makes it clear that the baby will never be his, even if it really is. Shane walks off as that seemed to really upset him. After talking with Carl, Shane tries to find the guns in the RV but Dale has taken them to try and hide or get rid of them (I don't get this myself, maybe Dale thinks he's protecting the group from Shane as he is losing it). Shane finds Dale in the swamp and demands his guns back. Dale puts his rifle up saying that he will shoot Shane. Shane steps right up against the rifle and Dale can't shoot him. Dale says, "This world, this is where you belong."

Hershel asks Rick to help him and Jimmy with something. They go into the swamp and find two walkers stuck in mud. They use those animal rescue neck grabbing poles to lead them to the farm.

Shane brings back the guns to the farm house and starts handing them out, wanting everyone to join him take care of the walkers in the barn. T-Dog and the others see Rick and Hershel with the two walkers as they try to bring them to the barn. The group runs out to the barn and Shane is pissed off and losing it. He kills the walker that Hershel had restrained and then opens up the barn door. Shane, Andrea, T-Dog, Daryl and finally Glenn line up and shoot the walkers that come out of the barn. Shane also shoots the walker that Rick had restrained.

After they finish shooting all of the walkers that came out of the barn, one more slowly steps out, and it's Sophia. Sophia is now a walker. Carol runs toward Sophia but Daryl grabs her and they fall to the ground as she cries. Rick steps forward and shoots Sophia. And that is how the finale ends.

The next episode for season 2 is on February 12th, 2012. Yea we got awhile to wait for the next episode, just when things are starting to get really good. Below is a sneak peek video of The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 8: Nebraska (it's a different scene from the previews on television that were shown). The previews on television made it look like Shane and Rick are in a gun fight, a horde of zombies attack the farm and somebody flips a car while driving it. It should definitely be a good episode. You have to wonder if the next episode will be the last one with the group at the farm.
