Glenn

Sorry, this episode is no longer available to watch on Demand 5.

Find out why

Following the shock death of Dale, the group holds a memorial service. But the power struggle between Shane and Rick continues. Shane doubts Rick's decision to release the group's prisoner, Randall, are just the latest manifestation of the their rivalry and Shane’s desire to be both leader and Lori’s man.

Carl tries to come to terms with Dale's death, confessing to both Shane and his father that he feels responsible. Carl hands over the gun he stole from Daryl, but Rick returns it to Carl, explaining that he needs it in these dark and dangerous times. Rick and Shane may see eye to eye on arming Carl, but otherwise the former best friends are totally at odds.

Meanwhile Shane has a plan for Randall and frees him. When the rest of the group are alerted, Rick, Shane, Daryl and Glenn Rick and Shane head off to search the woods. Rick and Shane hunt together but will their rivalry come to a head and put them all in danger?

And a shocking and unexpected revelation about the very nature of the undead plague changes everything...

    There are four main deaths in season 3 and none of them are expected just so you know.

    I wouldn't hide I don't think Sophie, I'd try and clear out my little village make it a little safe haven... If everyone had that mind set then the plague wouldn't spread very far in the first place. Obv thats just what I'd like to think i'd do, in reality i'd probably scared witless :D

    Nothing wrong with my PC or internet - I've just watched 77 un-interupted minutes of a movie whilst 5OD has me stuck at 5min 31sec. Sometimes 5OD works but that is the rare exception. All other on line players are seamless. So can't blame it on hardware.

    To all those people who say that the blurb spoils the episode, I have one thing to say to you. WHY ARE YOU READING THE BLURB BEFORE WATCHING THE EPISODE, IT'S OBVIOUS IT WILL SPOIL IT.

    I can't believe Shane is dead, I really liked him :'( Lori was toying with him, right until the end as well as causing hatred between Rick and Shane. I hope she dies soon! @ Blossom - you're not getting it right - everyone is infected and as a result become a zombie after they die - unless they are shot/knifed etc in the HEAD prior to dying. Dale did not become a zombie because he was shot in the head to relieve him from his pain and so did not become a zombie! Randall became a zombie because Shane did not kill him by attacking his head but his neck!

    Seriously, geet your website sorted out. The adverts play wihtout a hitch, and then the programme gets no more than ten seconds in and it freezes up. I reload the page, sit through another round of perfectly working adverts, and it freezes again, but whilst it does unfreeze after a minute or so, the freezing happens repeatedly. My internet is fine, I have a good connection, and my laptop runs fairly fast, so the problem is with your webside. This problem has persisted since episode one of the series, and if it continues for much longer, I may have to get the episodes from another source, which will not simply give you money for a decidedly sub-par service.

    Blossom, Everyone is infected so if there die without a blunt trauma to the brain they will come back as a walker.

    I`ve already seen season 2 and my only regret is that it`s the last episode next week. Even though it`s been showing for 13 weeks it just isn`t long enough. But, thankfully, season 3 will be shown next year on Channel 5. Because I can`t wait that long I`ll go online and watch the first episode of season 3 as it is being shown in America on October 14th. So if some of you guys out there are like me and can`t wait, then go online and do the same

    nice action this week,as per the norm .the last one will be the best of the lot.i know the buget of each show can be restricting but how many millions of people in the usa are zombies...just an idea but what would you do in the same world if it was based in the uk?

    Yes I can explain why Shane became a zombi but it wouls spoil it for you. I will Say that it has someting to do with what that research dude whispered in Ricks ear at end of series 1

  • Blossom

    Blossom

    Yeah,Colin, I remember that! U must be right with your idea. I was really thinkin,Shaun became a zombie,because Rick's knife was infected, but Randall still don't make sense. So,everyone will become a zombie ,when dies then,except the ones are killed by a zombie,like Dale. Interesting.

  • Colin

    Colin

    I'm only guessing Blossom but the spoiler blurb said there would be a revelation about the zombie plague & then both Randall and Shane turn into walkers after dying without being bitten suggesting to me that the virus has mutated and everyone's already carrying it but it triggers on death. If i remember correctly I think they might have hinted this in the episode when Shane and Rick went to release Randall as I think they found a couple of dead zombie cops with no bite marks.

    Has anyone else noticed that T-Dog barely says anything?...ever, Well saying that be had about 2 lines in this episode Also why don't they go to a nearby police station or army barracks and get some decent firepower? I know theres walkers everywhere but there not exactly Usain Bolt you can easily outrun them. All those walkers coming in at the end OMG the next episode is gonna be SO GOOD!! cant wait :) Ray.
