And so the dead return.. in quite a smashing 2nd half season 2 opener – Nebraska. Picking up from right where we left in the mid-season finale, the Atlanta Grimes gang just executed the barn full of walkers, including Sophie. They had been looking for her for almost the entire 7 episodes, and that turned out to be futile. Rick comes to terms with the whole “hope” situation, and Shane steps into the dark side even further. And just when you thought that the walkers are the only threat, we are treated to a different level of invasion. It couldn’t have been a better opening for the Walking Dead. And here are a few points I want to discuss about the episode, all bullet pointed after the jump. SPOILER ALERT!
