What was your favourite secret from episode 6?

A good secret is hard to keep, and this week nearly everyone discovered just how true that is.

Glenn is the first to let slip; telling Dale about the walkers he saw in the barn and the fact that Lori is pregnant. This leads to Dale confronting Hershel about the barn where he discovers that the walkers locked in the barn are the Greene’s family and friends, whom they are hoping to cure. Can the walkers be cured? And is the barn strong enough to hold them?

Lori asks Glenn to go back to the pharmacy to get her the morning after pill, which he does, accompanied by an annoyed Maggie. After arguing about whether or not it is right to kill a walker as there is still a possibility that they could be returned to a human state, Maggie is attacked. A walker grabs onto her arm and attempts to bite her; thankfully Glenn is quick enough take the walker down and delivers a few swift blows to the head with his machete.

When Maggie and Glenn return to the camp, Maggie throws the pills at Lori, chastising her for nearly getting her and Glenn killed. Glenn then gives Lori some pre-natal vitamins so that she can choose whether or not to keep the baby.

Lori takes the pills, but forces herself to vomit them back up. Rick then finds the empty box and confronts Lori, who comes clean about being pregnant and her affair with Shane when she thought Rick was dead. Does this mean that Lori is keeping the baby?

Meanwhile, Shane takes his star shooting pupil, Andrea, to look for Sophia in a nearby town. While searching a house they are surrounded by walkers, but are able to shoot their way out. On the way back to the farm Andrea, on a massive high after killing so many walkers, makes a move on Shane and things get a bit hot and heavy. Is Andrea making the right choice by getting involved with Shane?

Once back at the farm however, Dale asks Shane if he still plans to leave, telling him it might be best for the group as he never did explain exactly what happened to Otis. Does Dale know that Shane killed Otis to save himself?

Secrets were slipping left, right and centre in this episode, but a few things were left unanswered:

  • Is Lori keeping the baby?
  • Was Andrea right to sleep with Shane?
  • Can walkers get colds or hayfever? Because that would explain what a walker was doing in the pharmacy
  • Can the walkers be cured?

    Definately got to be more action two or three zombie kills in two episodes your right its pretty boring just now but still riviting viewing, i think hersell is just too upset to kill them in the barn and thats why he wnts the group to leave,and they most likely will as if they stay then theres not much left to do as there all pretty safe at the farm! I think the group will split up and glen might stay with Maggie at the farm also Shane and rick will have to sort out their differences surely it will be an explosive last few episodes!

    Feeding the zombies in the barn with chickens was gross and cruel. The zombies are dead so all their body organs, apart from the brain and nervous system, are non functional so their stomachs won't digest the flesh and they can't starve as they are already dead? There's no way of curing them since they are already dead and decomposing...

    Is this a zombie survival horror story or an soap opera? The group stayed at the farm far too long now, it's getting kinda stale and it's time to move on to a new scenery so hoping the next episode will change all that. Apart from that, Shane is now proving very unpopular among the group so how long will he stay with them or will the survivors cast him out?

    Curing walkers. Thats a tough one given that even if they could be 'cured' theres the knotty problem of advanced decomposure and loss of higher brain function.

    If Lori is keeping the baby she had better make her mind up. Andrea can sleep with who she likes. It;'s unlikely that walkers can get colds of hayfever, because they're dead! I doubt walkers can be cured, as they're often covered in huge cuts and injuries that would otherwise cause death, or at least lead to it. Is it me, or is this second series just a little boring compared to the first? It just seems like there's not much happening, and they're just on the farm all the time.
