Series 2 - Episode 4: Cherokee Rose

Episode 4: Cherokee Rose

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

Find out why

Carl recovers from his operation to remove fragments of a bullet from his body and asks about the still missing Sophia.

Meanwhile Dale, Daryl, Andrea and Carol move the vehicles and set up camp at the farm, where they are introduced to the Greene group. There, they hold a funeral service for Otis. Shane is asked to share Otis’s final moments. Will Shane continue with his lie that Otis had sacrificed his life to save Carl?

The group organise a search for Sophia. Since Shane is still injured and Rick is too weak from donating blood to his son, Daryl ventures out into the woods on his own. He eventually finds an abandoned house which has evidence that a child has been hiding in it, possibly Sophia.

Maggie and Glenn venture to the local pharmacy to find more medical supplies. Before he leaves, Lori asks Glenn to search for something for her: a pregnancy test...

    So disappointed as I saw episodes 1 & 2 of series 2 but came on line to catch up and from episode 3 is not available. Shame I will have to give up on this series as now I have missed too much in between to go back onto TV to continue watching.

    Ch5 you're making it so difficult to watch this show, it's not on my Xbox 5 On Demand stream, and it's not on here long enough for me to watch it, I keep missing episodes.

    Why wasn't this repeated on Sunday as expected? As it isn't on here I've missed it now as well. Great!

    Can't believe Ep 4 is no longer available! Especially as they didn't bother to repeat it on Sunday night like they normally do so I didn't have chance to watch it then. I was even prepared to sit through the endless spooling. Not very good C5, learn from your opposition and have them available for the entire run of the series. Suppose I'll have to see if it's on YouTube instead.

    After using many other players this one has to be the worst. My broadband has good speed to stream but this episode has now taken over two hours to watch on a laptop. It’s only a 42-minute episode from start to Finnish!!!! Forget it watching on a smart TV, it wouldn’t play past the adverts on mine. Come on Channel 5 sort it out!!!

    I've missed 2 episodes now and the catch up on demand 5 is so poor I've had to give up because of the constant freezing. I might have to give up with this series on Channel 5 and buy the box set instead. At least I won't have to put up with the constant advert breaks either.

    Its just a con to get you to watch the advert over and over as you try and get it to play. This time round I will use the time to post this comment. Realy poor channel 5

    Karen Watched the first 20 mins of this episode, kept freezing every 45 seconds! So got fed up. You can't report a problem either as the page doesn't come up properly. Really poor demand 5. Reading all these comments shouldn't you have sorted this out by now!!!

    Not a great episode, was easily distracted throughout it as it didn't grab my attention. Nothing of note really happened. Just hoping the next episode's a bit more eventful.

    Tried three nights in a row now for about 30 minutes each time. Absolute rubbish service. I've got a high speed connection - 10mbs actual and have no problems with other services. I can have ten Youtubes streaming simultaneously but can't get past the adverts here. I missed episode 1 a few eeks back and couldn't get to see that on catch up. I missed last weeks episode, so will have to give up on the series on channel five and wait for the DVD. Terrible.

    2 nights running I've tried watching the latest episode but the screen keeps freezing. I try to report a problem with the video but the video overlaps the complaint form so I can't send it off to channel 5. What a rubbish site!!

    dont 5od eva read the blogs or try to resolve any issues?? i was just about to try and watch walkin dead but came across all this negative feedback and thought twice so if i have been put off by this imagine how many others have, channel 5 ur losing ur touch!! Oh nd another thing big brother sucks and your channel gets taken over by it everytime its on, why cant big brother be one of those programmes you can only watch on 5OD instead cause i hate it with a passion!

    Two days running - I have sat through the starting adverts only to then get the message : This video is currently not available. I missed last weeks episode for similar problems. Come on Channel 5, these videos are only available for 5 days!

    Another disgraceful On Demand streaming service by Channel 5 - the only two programmes I watch on this network are the cricket highlights and the Walking Dead and it looks like the latter will be dropping off the list! Miss it live and say goodnight as the On Demand service is one of the worst user interfaces out there. Such a basic thing messed up... If there is too much demand or other technical issues then Channel 5 should get their finger out and fix these issues. Note to Channel 5: try reading a selection of comments from here. This is how customers lose faith in organizations and how they then go elsewhere, when they are not being listened too - I think you are lucky Channel 5 to even be on the tv remote control at number 5 when there are many more worthy channels that could take your place - QVC, Gems TV... I think I would rather watch those channels that endure the issues trying to get the Walking Dead to play! School report card - E. Go home. You're expelled by this viewer.

  • OscarSizeland

    The behaviour of the zombies in the novel explains why shane shot him, that and the obvious. Zombies live in a web, that is triggered by sound or smell from the centre of the web. A zombie follows that web, even if the shot or smell taken out of the picture, they follow the source to the middle, meeting up with more zombies as they go forming a "herd". Shane shot him so oatis becomes the said source and not the car he took back to the farm.

    Brilliant! Why moan about adverts? Channel 5 is a commercial station for God's sake! How else do you think they make the money to buy programmes like the Walking Dead? The alternative would be pay per view and I'm sure people would still moan!

    Shane had to kill Otis to save himself they were running out of ammo and would have had to fend them off by hand Otis bought him time to get away besides Otis was to slow and had trouble keeping up any way despite Shanes leg. But what goes around comes around so watch out Shane!!!!!!!!!

    I had no problem watching the episode this week, the picture and sound were fine, the only thing that puts me off watching again is having to sit through roughly 12 minutes of adverts. Sort it out channel 5;

    The adverts totally destroy the point of five on demand and being able to watch what I want when I want: I DON'T want to watch adverts. I won't waste my time with this again. As much as I love TWD, it's not worth it. Sort it out, 5ive.

    The advertising really wrecks the online viewing experience - makes the programme freeze. I won't bother with Channel 5 on line again. It's a waste of time.

    In the graphic novels Shane doesn't kill Otis because by this point in the story, Rick's son has already blown Shane's head off.

  • Jeremy Ireland

    This series has been written in typical zombie horror style with people doing things that make no sense just to facilitate the storyline. This series only made it to TV because the graphic novels are so successful and unlike this TV series, they actually offer something believable and fresh to the zombie genre. Killing Otis wasn't smart or necessary. If they had been smart one of them would have baited the zombies from inside the truck and led the zombies around and away from their loot like the brainless corpses they are whilst the other snuck in and got the supplies ready. The fact that everyone keeps relying on guns is another ridiculous addition to this series. If you want shock and surprise with remotely believable characters read the graphic novels. Then read World War Z - the most convincing zombie story ever told.

    He kills Otis because it's the only way he can escape the undead, he's injured and can't outrun them and neither can Otis, though Otis has already refused to leave him behind. I suppose the point is that Shane is a complex character who is not entirely 'good', he sometimes makes decisions based on what is best for him rather than the group, but he isn't totally bad either, his action save Rick's son, though again his motive for doing this may not be entirely altruistic. It also raises once more what happens at the start of the first series when Rick is trapped in the hospital. Does Shane fail to rescue Rick because he can't, or because he really wants Lori for himself?

  • Adam

    I think he killed Otis for a couple of reasons 1: He shot the boy 2: If he didn't they would of both been eaten 3: He wanted a sense of power
