When "The Walking Dead" returns in midseason, the survivors will face the consequence for killing the walkers from the Hershel barn. The veterinarian tells them to get their feet off his farm after Shane opens the barn and shoots the zombies, which included Sophia, along with Andrea, Glenn, Daryl, and T-Dog.
Rick will confront Shane regarding his decision to massacre the walkers, which mostly consist of Hershel's family members. While it is obvious that Rick's ultimate intention is to keep peace with Hershel so that they could stay in his farm, Shane is questioning the way his best friend is handling the situation.
Also in the upcoming episode, Hershel's whereabouts is unknown. The survivors may put their lives at stake when they go searching for the Greene patriarch.
"The Walking Dead" is on hiatus after airing the November 27 episode and will return with the new outing, titled "Nebraska", on February 12, 2012 at 9/8c on AMC.
