TV Review: THE WALKING DEAD: Season 2, Episode 8: Nebraska

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 8 Nebraska Review. The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 8: Nebraska was an episode of realizations and change. Usually this change occurred when in the company of another character on the show. How deep Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan)’s feelings go for Glenn (Steven Yeun) are shown through her fear of him going back into town, almost in a hilarious yet sweet way.

Lori Grimes (Sarah Wayne Callies) realizes that her son Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) is growing cold to killing and seeing monsters in human-form killed and knows he needs a father in his life like Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln).

Everyone in the group seems to think breaking into someone else’s private property to kill Walkers is completely okay.

The obvious never occurs to them (or they just don’t care):

1. Leave the possibly hazardous location.

2. This analogy: If killer lions are everywhere but the farm and you find some locked in a secure cage on the farm, does it make sense to break into the cage, a cage so sturdy it takes a pick axe to get into, then waste precious and unrecoverable ammo killing them in lieu of saving the ammo and leaving the cage intact?

3. The fact that the owner of the barn, farm, and land they all reside on wants the Walkers in the barn.

From this, its obvious the group is growing more and more concerned with the preservation of their lives over other people’s civil liberties. Shane Walsh (Jon Bernthal) is the furthest along this path amongst the group.

Hershel Greene (Scott Wilson) realizes that the Walkers are indeed dead and can not be saved, a lesson he learned while watching the group blow the Walker members of his family apart.

Rick is shown as ready to kill to defend his and his own from roaming wolves.

Hershel Greene, Glenn, and Rick realize they are not the only humans in the town or the only ones looking for a safe haven no matter what.
