If the survivors didn’t have enough of a challenge trying to convince Hershel to allow them to remain on his farm, Shane (who else?) had to lose his
shit composure upon finding out that there are WALKERS IN THE BARN! He gave no one a choice by busting open the barn and letting the walkers free. Fortunately, he had distributed guns and ammo to the shooters in the survivor group and they were prepared to do the ‘fish-in-a-barrel’ thing. Hershel, Maggie and the rest of the Greene clan looked on in horror and disbelief as did Lori, Carl and Carol. (Dale hadn’t made it back yet from his swamp excursion in a futile attempt at hiding all the guns (from Shane).)
After gunning down the walkers which included Hershel’s wife & step-son (Maggie’s mother & brother) the shooters paused with Andrea looking especially satisfied. Everyone’s look changed tho’ when they heard soft moans coming from the barn. First we saw the capri pants and the short, red socks and the small, white tennis shoes–the stature of the walker was small. Sophia had been found, worse than dead–undead. While the gunslingers stood there in shock Rick, who up to that point had respected Hershel’s request to treat walkers as humans, shooting none from the barn, aimed his pistol squarely at Sophia’s head and pulled the trigger.
Hershel explains that he ‘didn’t know’:
In a clip from the next episode Hershel explains to an irate Shane that no, he did not know Sophia was in the barn. He says Otis wrangled the walkers and put them in the barn but died before he told anyone about the new addition.
The time line must have been very narrow, IMO, meaning Sophia must have been bitten after her 1st night sleeping in a small closet. That, Or…Sophia sought shelter in the barn–got in the same way Glenn did and somehow was bitten though I don’t see how that could have happened. I’d really like to see what happened to her.
