The season finale of The Walking Dead sets up the basics for the third season. We lose hope, we lose more characters, and we lose the farm. “Beside the Dying Fire” also reveals a pivotal secret from season one and gives a hint at where our survivors will end up in season three.

After several episodes that saw the plot barely move along, this episode saw it shoot up and go in a direction that was unforeseen. Titled, “Better Angels” The Walking Dead starts shining light on the survivors mental state. There is also another major character death, one that was incredibly tense and very well shot. Next week's episode is the season finale and it looks to be filled with a lot of walker action. They are coming to the barn, there is no safe place. Once again Carl also manages to find himself in the middle of a sticky situation, what is Lori doing half the time that she can't keep her eye on him?

So far this season we've seen a tremendous amount of things happen to our survivors. As important to the character's story arcs these events have been, some episodes have been lacking. Those of you that read the comics have mixed feelings. This is not a direct adaptation, more of a companion piece but sometimes it feels like the main plot is going nowhere. Last night's episode, “Judge, Jury, Executioner” ran the story into the wall. The last few minutes we also lose a major character. The big question this episode poses to us is, what about the right thing to do? Destroy the liberties of the group, of humanity out of fear and safety or...is there another way? Is there a way to hold onto the traditions of humanity or do you have to switch on that kill or be killed instinct to survive?

The power struggle between Shane and Rick comes to a head, while Beth figures out her reason for living. This Sunday's episode, “18 Miles Out” gets us back on track with some more questions and some more action. Will fear ultimately drive the group to do even more gruesome things? When the world goes to hell would you become all the things you hate?

The Walking Dead continues to put in motion the events needed to change the dynamic of the group and of Rick's character. Episode 9, titled “Triggerfinger” puts Rick's past morals to the test. We do not kill the living now has become, we kill the living to protect our own? What makes him any different now from Shane or the living dead that kill? There is also an intense power struggle brewing between Shane and Rick. Triggerfinger tries to put this into perspective.

Now that the situation with Sophia has been resolved, the survivors have reached a stalemate. Hershel wants them off his property, Rick needs Hershel and so does the rest of the group, and Shane is doing what he does best, brood around with a kill or be killed attitude. Episode 8, titled “Nebraska”, started coping with the question of where does innocence belong in this world? Is it really a kill or be killed world or is there something more?

The mid-season finale of The Walking Dead brought everything to a head. The survivors are spent, Glenn told the group about the walkers in the barn. Not only are they now on edge but, Rick is desperately trying to do right by Hershel. He's the only one remembering that this is Hershel's farm, his property. This episode titled, “Pretty Much Dead Already” damages hope for many of the survivors, especially Hershel, while putting others to the test.

Every character on the walking dead is holding back. This week's episode, fittingly titled, “Secrets” explores sins of omission, lies, deceit, and secrets.

This week's episode of The Walking Dead was all about either cutting your morals loose or holding onto them. Much of the episode also focuses on Daryl as he continues to search for Sophia and runs into trouble along the way. “Chupacabra” explores whether or not our morality would survive and continues the hunt for Sophia.

Episode 4 of this season's The Walking Dead slowed things down a bit, giving in to a lot of time to develop certain elements that will become extremely important later. Many things happened as well. There was a lot to digest from this episode titled, “Cherokee Rose.”
