Glad to see Herschel stepping up his game. He shot the black guy, didn't seem too bothered when the zombies ripped him apart, referred to the zombies as 'walkers', tried to get Rick to leave the kid that was stuck on the fence, then stood up to Shane at the farm.
Meanwhile Rick reverted back to his pussy ways. "Yeah, you're buddies in here are dead. Sorry, we had no choice. Could you just kindly leave us alone?". Horse shit. Then he tried to save the douchebag kid that was just shooting at them. I'd have Shane's mindset if I were in that situation. The shit Rick does puts them too much at risk.
"I don't know how to put this...but I'm kind of a big deal"
