To be honest, I don't know what to say about this episode but that I felt uncomfortable with all the secrets, all the muddy feelings, characters grinding each other and the revelations.
Maybe it is that in my personal life, I don't like spilling secrets and far less the people who spill them around, but let me say this, I understand why they had to come out and what sort of drama the producers were able to achieve with them. And I'm afraid that there isn't much zombie action in this, but far more typical soap that I'd come across in far too many traditional British series.
And as we come closer to the midseason hiatus, allow me to quote this bit, where Laurie Holden explains Andrea's character evolution and what she sees in Shane:
"You'll see in the next few episodes that she really evolves into more a level-headed person. She really overcomes a lot of her issues of grief and petulant behaviour. She emerges much stronger.
Shane and Andrea are in many ways cut from the same cloth. He's an alpha male and she's an alpha female. She admires him greatly. He teaches her everything she knows and in the upcoming episodes, he gives her a lot of tough love, which she doesn't appreciate and it gets a little nasty, but at the end of the day, it's the best thing for her because she emerges stronger because of it."
She also explains that Shane is going (back) to some dark places very soon, but Andrea won't see it:
"In the upcoming episodes, he reveals a dark side to different characters, but it's something that he keeps very private and not something that Andrea is ever exposed to. She only sees the strong virile alpha male Shane, she doesn't see the dark side. If she did, she wouldn't buddy-buddy up with him."
Finally, she says the fate of the zombies in the barn will dominate the upcoming episodes. http://io9.com/5861319/christian-bal...ayne-really-is
