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.
Fox's "New Girl" has not only become one of this season's success stories, but it's also introduced a character that has, in some ways unexpectedly, become one of the most talked about of the year.
Of course, we're speaking of none other than Schmidt, as played by Max Greenfield.
This first season, which wraps up with its finale Tuesday night, has been "very surreal," Greenfield told us in an interview.
Sunday's season finale of "The Walking Dead" – though it was an excitement-filled hour – certainly left viewers with a lot more questions as to what the next season will look like.
Executive producer Glen Mazzara spoke with reporters on Tuesday to shed a little light on what to expect. For starters, just how much will we see of the prison that was shown in the final shot of the season?
"I do think that prison is a significant storyline," Mazzara said, adding that the prison will not just be a major setting for the third season (premiering in October), but the fourth as well.
Sunday night's "The Walking Dead" delivered everything we could expect from a season finale.
The opening scene, I'll admit, was a little odd. It seemed like there could be more significance than appeared at first glance to the horde of walkers descending on Hershel's farm, because they included some of the walkers that Rick encountered in Atlanta. As interesting as it was, I don't know if it was entirely relevant.
The good news is that we got right to where we left off at the end of the last episode, as soon as the opening titles were over. Daryl and Glenn announced to Lori, Andrea and the rest waiting in Hershel's barn that they found Randall but that he had become a walker, despite the lack of bite marks.
The last two episodes of "The Walking Dead" had more than their share of surprises and major character deaths. So what can we expect for Sunday night's season finale?
"There's more bloodshed coming, I will say that," Glen Mazzara told reporters on Thursday. "You know, these characters have felt that they are safe on this farm - they've been wrong. They've been looking for a safe place to hide, and I guarantee you there will be bloodshed. I will guarantee that people will watch this finale and want to know what comes next. And I think a lot of the diehard fans will say, 'I can't wait for October.' I guarantee it."
We also learned last week that the walker virus can apparently be spread without being bitten.
