The first season was just great. At first I thought the series was just another zombie splatter, then I sat a little longer and that scene came up. The man who saved Rick is pointing a rifle at his afflicted wife, tears in his eyes and full of left-loathing. He wants to end her misery and yet can't manage to squeeze the trigger. Ever since that episode I've been wondering where he and his son ended up. I'm sad to see how the series has evolved since the first season, but it's still a great creation.
