Sunday night's episode of "The Walking Dead" won't exactly satisfy the "we need to see more zombies" contingent of fans, though it did include the most disgusting zombie scene of the season.
It happened after the survivors came upon a "swimmer" inside a well at the farm where they had been staying. Apparently he had even grown gills. (Points for originality.)
Anyone could tell that lowering Glenn down to get the "swimmer" was a monumentally bad idea, and I'm not entirely sure what the plan was once he was lowered down.
Once that idea failed miserably, they ended up getting him by the neck and tearing him in half, before his head was bashed in. So much for that well water.
But don't feel too bad for Glenn. His relationship with Maggie progressed pretty quickly, when they made a run to the drug store (but it was a "one time thing," she said).
Shane, meanwhile, after it was revealed that he left Otis to die in the most gruesome way imaginable, was asked to deliver his eulogy. But we have yet to even begin to see the repercussions from that act.
After Carl started to recover, Rick asked Hershel if the group could stay longer. He hesitated but obliged, as long as they continue to follow his rules.
And it wasn't too difficult to figure out that Glenn had swiped a pregnancy test for Lori, a test that would come out positive.
Much of this episode was setting up storylines that will pay off later in the season, but I can certainly see why the hardcore zombie fans might get restless.
This season has been great - certainly an improvement over last year - but this is the weakest episode so far (though it did have its moments, like Daryl's "Cherokee rose" monologue to Carol).
The big question still looming, though, is what happened to Sophia. If we don't find out the answer before the midseason break, there will be even more angry fans out there.
