Well, I guess they can end their search for Sophie, poor thing. The only character we've seen less of is T-Dog, who didn't even put in an appearance until 50 minutes into the show tonight. I wouldn't mind if that idiot Dale would disappear, either. Hiding the guns, their main means of protection? Idiot.
