The group tries to co-exist alongside Hershel's family, but dangerous secrets and disagreements over leadership cause tensions to rise. Daryl n Shane forces the walkers out of the barn and the group opens fire, Sophia appears as one of the undead and Rick shoots her.
Since the second season, Rick has seemingly been forgiven by the group after the events that transpired, and once again, earns their trust. Rick and the group stumble upon an abandoned house, kill all of the walkers inside and decide to stay there for a while to eat and rest. This is short lived when another group of Walkers begins to approach the house, causing the group to flee. While Rick goes hunting with Daryl, they both stumble upon the prison. Rick realizes it's the perfect place (because there would be plenty of food, guns, and medicine). Rick shuts the main gate of the prison, while the rest of the group distract and kill the walkers. Lori pleads with Rick to let them stay at the prison for a few days, Rick agrees but then soon rebuffs Lori, revealing that Lori has forgiven her husband whereas Rick is bitter towards her. At the night, Hershel asks Beth to sing "The Parting Glass", and along with Maggie, she does so.......... The next day, Rick and the rest of the group clear out the remaining walkers blocking the entrance to the prison and find a secure cell block inside. Once again, Rick rebuffs Lori when she tries to thank him. The group finds riot gear, flash grenades, and other useful equipment. Rick, Maggie, Glenn, Hershel, T-Dog, and Daryl look for the cafeteria and infirmary, only to be ambushed by a group of walkers. Glenn and Maggie are split from the group, but Hershel insists on going back for his daughter. Hershel finds Maggie, but is bitten in the lower right calf by a stray walker in the hallway. The group take Hershel inside the cafeteria area and Rick (acting quickly), amputates the lower portion of Hershel's right leg to keep the infection from spreading. Five men then appear, and Daryl aims his crossbow at them. One of the men, Axel, then ends the episode, saying: "Holy shit!". Meanwhile Michonne, a new survivor, is seen in a pharmacy and kills three walkers inside, leaving with medicine of which is for a sick Andrea back at a game storage building. Andrea insists on Michonne leaving her behind, but she refuses. They are later seen leaving the storage unit into the woods ahead......
Rick walks outside to the scene of a sunny, calm day. He splashes water on his face, and the shot pans out to a vegetable garden towards which he is headed. Lining the gates of the garden lie a dozen walkers that have accumulated overnight. While listening to music and digging in the garden, Rick finds a handgun, which he examines for a moment and then tosses into his wheelbarrow.
Carl walks towards Rick, complaining that his father had not awakened him. Rick says he had not done so due to the knowledge that Carl was up late reading comic books, and the two share a chuckle. Carl speaks of a pig that he calls Violet, laying in the corner of a pen, mentioning it looks ill; Rick tells Carl he should not name the pigs as they are food, yet answers that he does not know the reason of the pig's illness.........
In the outdoor confines of the prison, Carol cooks breakfast for the residents. Daryl joins her, while numerous survivors thank him for his hunting including a young man named Patrick. A group of survivors, along with Karen, are clearing walkers that have built up along the gate perimeter. Tyreese approaches Karen (whom he calls "Beautiful"), telling her of his discomfort with killing walkers along the gate due to the face-to-face combat. Karen questions why he volunteers to help along the gates, to which he responds he wanted to get to know her better. Tyreese tells her he's going on the supply run; Karen gives him a good luck kiss, and tells him to be careful. Meanwhile, Hershel is telling Rick about planting more crops when Michonne arrives from a scouting run. She volunteers to check the traps for any animals before the walkers get them but Rick decides to go himself. As he leaves, Hershel tells Rick that their council (himself, Glenn, Carol, Daryl, and Sasha) preferred that Rick take his gun along when he goes outside the gates for protection........
The Walking Dead (also known as The Walking Dead: The Game and The Walking Dead: Season One) is an episodic graphic adventure based on Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comic book series. The game was developed by Telltale Games and was initially slated for release in the last months of 2011, but was held back until early 2012 to allow further time for development. The game consists of five episodes, released between April and November 2012. Telltale has also published retail versions of the complete game. Currently the game is available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Microsoft Windows, iOS, OS X PlayStation Vita, and Kindle Fire HDX.An Ouya version is planned for release in early 2014.
The game takes place in the same fictional world as the comic, with events occurring shortly after the onset of the zombie apocalypse in Georgia. However, most of the characters are original to the game, which centers on university professor and convicted murderer Lee Everett, who helps to rescue and subsequently care for a young girl named Clementine. Kirkman provided oversight for the game's story to ensure it corresponded to the tone of the comic, but allowed Telltale to handle the bulk of the developmental work and story specifics. Three characters from the original comic book series make in-game appearances; Hershel Greene, Shawn Greene and Glenn Rhee............
Unlike many graphic adventure games, The Walking Dead does not emphasize puzzle solving, but instead focuses on story and character development. The story is affected by both the dialogue choices of the player and their actions during quick time events, which can often lead to, for example, certain characters being killed, or an adverse change in the disposition of a certain character or characters towards Lee. The choices made by the player carry over from episode to episode. Choices were also tracked by Telltale, and used to influence their writing in later episodes.
The Walking Dead has been critically acclaimed, with reviewers praising the harsh emotional tone of the story and the emphatic connection established between Lee and Clementine. The game has won over 90 "Game of the Year" awards, including awards from USA Today, GamesRadar, E! Online, and the Spike Video Game Awards. More than one million unique players have purchased at least one episode from the series, with over 8.5 million individual episodes sold by the end of 2012, and its success has been seen as constituting a revitalization of the weakened adventure game genre. In July 2013, Telltale released an additional downloadable episode, 400 Days, to extend the first season and bridge the gap towards the second season.

True to it's genre, The Walking Dead's very first episode premiered on Halloween night, October 31, 2010.
In the very first episode, Days Gone Bye, Carl Grimes, Rick's son, is wearing a Science Dog t-shirt. Science Dog is a character created by Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead.
Daryl Dixon, unlikely fan favorite of the show (played by Norman Reedus) uses a specific type of crossbow, a Horton Scout HD 125. This thing retails for about $300.00 (US) and Reedus has said that he takes it home with him after filming. Dick's Sporting Goods says that the Horton Scout HD 125 is for 'individuals who want a smaller crossbow with a lighter draw weight.'
Zombies in TWD are never referred to as 'zombies.' There are different terms used for them, especially in the comics, with walkers being the most prevalent. They're known as roamers, lurkers, floaters, 'the herd,' and biters. In the show, the characters T-Dog and Glen often refer to them as geeks.
Though it's not widely known, the character T-Dog's real name is Theodore Douglas in the show. He is played by the actor IronE Singleton.
In the world of The Walking Dead, walkers outnumber the living about 5000 to 1.
In episode five of season one, we learn that it has been five and a half months since the walkers took over the world.
The fact that walkers will eat animals other than humans is a nod to Romero, who's living dead would eat any warm blooded, living creatures. In The Walking Dead, walkers will not eat anything that has previously expired. Walkers have eaten deer, chickens, rats and dogs on the show.
One big theory is that the virus that causes people to become walkers upon death is not contagious, everyone already has it, or it's somehow in the air or the water. It is speculated that the walker's bite, and possibly their scratches, however, are always fatal. People who expire for reasons other than zombie bites or scratches will also reanimate, unless their brains are severely damaged prior to death.
In season one, special effects guru Greg Nicotero played not one, but two walkers! He was the walker who bit Andrea's sister Amy as well as the zombie eating the deer right when Daryl Dixon was introduced to viewers. The super-gross bloated 'walker in the well' from season two was played by makeup artist Brian Keith Hillard.
According to Jenner, the scientist at the CDC in Atlanta at the end of season one, the deceased will reanimate in as little as three minutes, or as long as eight hours depending on the physical and mental conditions they were in at death. That character's full name, by the way, Edwin Jenner, is a nod to the English scientist who developed the smallpox vaccine in the 1790's. His name was Edward Jenner.
There was a lot of controversy about what Jenner actually said to Rick Grimes just before the survivors left the CDC at the end of season one. In the BluRay edition of TWD season one, if you turn the center channel audio up very high, you can actually hear Jenner say: "It's in your blood. We're all carriers." Rick doesn't divulge this information to the other survivors until the end of season two.
