SEASON 2

Episode 2: The group all split off and cope with their situation.  Lori cries to Rick that all of their supplies is gone and asks if there is anything they can do to stop it and Rick says they can throw water at it but they would lose all of it.  Seth looks over in the RV and sees Madison in the back end with a knife, he runs over and asks her what she's doing and she says she is ending her suffering.  He takes the knife and tells her that she can't do this and it will get better if she just tries and waits it out and, annoyed, she says she can try.  Rick confronts Shane and asks him if he knew anything about the fire and Shane flips out saying he thinks he's accusing him of trying to kill the people he loves and Rick asks him who exactly he loves there, but Shane says he doesn't love anyone there and he didn't mean anything by it as he was just venting.  When the fire burns down, Rick, Shane, Theodore, Daryl, Andrea, Glenn and Seth all go in to see if they can save any supplies.  They learn that everything is ruined, but Andrea suggests they go to where Rick found the newspaper and see if they can find any evidence.  They go there, and they see that there is a lighter in Allen's room right by the door.  They try to discuss it, but Daryl pulls out his crossbow before they can and runs for Allen.  He pins him up on the RV and asks him what he did.  Allen denies this, and Seth pulls Daryl off and tells Allen he'll go in with him and show him.  Allen and Seth walk through the house and Seth asks him who slept in the rooms by him and he says Lizzie and Mika were in the room next to him and that's it.  Seth walks in their room and sees an open notebook with pages ripped out.

NOTES

First of all, I would like to apologize.  I know one of the biggest complaints about the show is how they cycle out black characters and I didn't want to do that.  When I wrote this, one of the few last minute changes was that I wanted to kill Theodore and I've always knew this is when I would introduce Tyreese.  It was bad enough this happened in the same season, but then it was worse when it unfolded and ended up happening in the same episode.  This was not my intention at all and I will try my best to not do this in the future.


That being said, I love this season and have plans to make Season 3 even bigger.  Stay tuned!
