Yep. I can't believe they are still searching. Is this still following the novels? I mean the preacher is, but the search for the stupid kid?

As far as Sophia, I don't even remember her getting lost in the comics. Keep in mind Darryl isn't even in the comics. I think Sophia being lost has been more of a plot-device for his character than anything else. The return of Merle was a bit of a cheat, but I will forgive it. The reveal at the end...that's a good one and it's gonna blow the whole Herschel's people vs. Rick's people wide open. Anyone find themselves siding with Shane more and more. He's not a bad man, just doing what he thinks is right, minus all the hand-wringing doubt that made me HATE Rick in the comics.

So are we talking the preacher in HoW? Or am I lost on Walking??
Agree on Herschel's barn being the galvanizing thing here. They did a great job with it by the way. Looked like I fully expected there!

Yeah, I think as far as preacher we are talking about HoW, it just kinda got mixed together there...right Dex?

Ha I didn't even watch Hell on Wheels. I was talking about Herschel's secret in the barn. I feel bad for Glenn, he has to keep so many secrets now.

Yeah Hershcel is somewhat off the rez when it comes to his barn. I love they are following this from the books. It's going to be powder-keg good next week.
Agree with you jd that show 7 will really tell us how this is all going to go. After a so-so first epi I think they did a very good job since with the four other epi's.

'specially since there is going to be a few weeks off in between. The good thing is that AMC in their infinite mercenary mentality will no doubt repeat the first 6 almost on a loop. I agree about the first episode, think stretching (a thin) 45 minutes into an hour and a half is what did it in.

I wish they would end the Sophia suspense already. Wasn't expecting(although I should have) the Shane/Andrea hook-up. The scene between Dale and Shane was pretty damned good, but can't help feeling that this was a little wheel spinning. Gotta love Dale, he's like the Obiwan of the group. No surprise because DeMunn is always great. Can we lose T-dog already. Talk about having nothing to do. So, we have the halfway marker next week...overall I have to give the season a B-/C+ so far. There has to be a little more story movement. Waiting almost a year for the next season tends to make one antsy.
As far as Hell on Wheels, I almost gave up on it last week. How do you avoid hanging for killing your supervisor...apply for his job. Virtually rendering 'The Swede'(awesome b.t.w.) impotent. Gonna watch last nights episode and maybe make my decision. Anyone else give up/still aboard? I want to like this show, they are making it VERY difficult with ****ty writing.

So I loved Walking last night. Andrea is becoming that sharp shooting tough nut that she is in the comics. Great character development for her. The Herschel/Rick thing is getting real good too. And the giving the chickens to the barn walkers was something I never considered! Liked last night very much. Really interested to see what happens at show 7+ tho.
I need to watch the full HoW epi. Had kid's stuff going last night and only saw last 15 mins. Bohannon is a character I am really intrigued by but like you jd the pathetic writing is leading me to pass on this show ... like the British widow as well but have no idea where that is going ...
