Things got pretty intense during season 2 episode 7 of The Walking Dead but did everyone make it out of “Pretty Much Dead Already” alive?
Season 2 of The Walking Dead saw a lot of chaos happening on the Greene family farm and a lot of that came to a head during its seventh episode. Some huge secrets were revealed in the previous installment of the show.
The most shocking secret came in the final moments of episode 206 titled “Secrets” where Glenn Rhee discovered that Hershel and his family had been storing walkers in the barn hoping that a cure would be found to make them human again.
What Glenn would do with that information would be instrumental in determining how the survivors would approach the situation. But was the danger too much for Glenn not to share the news?
Here is who died in episode 207 of The Walking Dead titled “Pretty Much Dead Already” on Nov. 27, 2011:
- Nobody – No human or animal deaths happened on-screen!
- Walkers from the barn
The key word in the deaths in “on-screen” because there were some big revelations made when Shane opened the door to the barn and walkers started spilling out. As they filtered their way outside, several members of the Greene family and people from the nearby community walked out as walkers.
Season 2 episode 7 featured one of the biggest surprises of the franchise. Along with so many of the Greene’s zombified friends and family, an undead Sophia Peletier stumbled her way into the daylight.
Seeing the reaction of Carol as she saw confirmation that her daughter was dead was soul-crushing. She sobbed uncontrollably as Daryl attempted to console her. This hurts even more because Daryl had just spotted a Cherokee Rose on the riverbank and saw it as a sign that Sophia was still alive.
That wasn’t the only reveal. Dale confronted Shane about Otis when he was stopped while attempting to hide the guns. It was a story Dale just didn’t buy, which is big because Dale seems to have a great sense of people and be more than willing to stand up for what he believes in.
Finally, Lori’s pregnancy was addressed and Shane wanted to make sure she knew he was the father and Rick is weak. The battle for who will be the dad was firmly underway.
While there wasn’t death in some terms, there was plenty of death and sadness to go around in this episode of The Walking Dead. And that alone is enough reason to love (and hate) season 2 episode 7.
