Last season, "The Walking Dead" was sometimes criticized for poor pacing, with the plot slowly moving forward from week to week.
But Sunday night's episode was a prime example of why one can't fault the writers for that this season.

I'm not one to cry easily from stories projected on a screen, but this show has done it to me twice.
The first time was brought on by the season one anguish of a father forced to put down his undead wife, and the second time was just last week, when Rick lost his wife to a post-apocalyptic C-section.

Sunday night's episode opened yet again from the point of view of two Walkers. They were drawn away by an unknown person (perhaps the same person watching Carol a few weeks ago?) so that he could cut open a hole in the prison gate and place a deer's heart in front of it.
While the main action this week took place in the prison, there were some developments in Woodbury as well, such as the Governor's successful attempt to convince Andrea to stay "one or two days longer." Michonne – who does "are you kidding me?" better than anyone – wasn't exactly thrilled with this news.
Meanwhile, Merle requested to go on a mission to find his brother Daryl.

Right out of the gate, Sunday night's episode of "The Walking Dead" answered one of the series' big burning questions.
Just what was that helicopter that seemed to be patrolling the Georgia countryside? That chopper was carrying several soldiers, who had escaped a military base overrun by Walkers and the infected.

Sunday's "Walking Dead" episode was considered to be a "good day" by that character fans love to hate, Lori.
And on one level, it probably was the closest thing to a happy ending that this group has seen in a long time.
Hershel, who was on death's door after being attacked by a Walker, stopped breathing, and Lori saved him by performing mouth-to-mouth. (Carl's discovery of medical supplies - while defying his mother's wish not to go off on his own - didn't hurt matters either.)

The "more zombies, less talk" crowd should be pleased.
On Sunday's premiere of "The Walking Dead," the very first shot (with apologies, one presumes, to "Lost") zoomed out of a Walker's eyeball, giving us their point of view as a home they'd infested was infiltrated by our group of survivors.
It was the first of many action sequences in the premiere, each one gorier and more gripping than the last.
