Arguably the worst storyline in The Walking Dead at this point was the drawn-out Season 2 plot where everyone was looking for Carol’s daughter Sophia. Though I immediately suspected her to be dead, the fact that everyone kept the hung going caused me to change my tune, and I thought maybe she’d been kidnapped by someone that would become a threat to the group. But no, she was unceremoniously killed off by a walker while trying to sleep. Admittedly, it wasn’t her actual death that made for the shocking moment here, but the fact that Walker Sophia was actually inside of Hershel’s barn while everyone was looking for her, and her emergence from the barn doors was worth a gasp that lasted all the way up until Rick shot her back down.
