My feeling from that ep is that Shane panicked and doomed Otis cruelly and unnecessarily, which is why he's experiencing something like a mental breakdown right now (or perhaps that was a symptom of it).

Shane is not going to end well at the rate he's going. I feel like the writers are trying to get back to following the comic and making Shane more of a hardass slowly sliding into insanity suggests they are preparing the audience for a justified death.
The distance of the bus kinda killed it but I think it is the wrong thing to pick up on. If I was being chased by zombies while injured and carrying medicine to save my best friend's child's life, I would most definitely do whatever was needed in that situation.

In that world it is pure survival.

A thousand times this. No matter how predictable a development that may have been, the actors nailed it and I was caught off guard and cried like a bitch.

I'm going to have a hard time waiting till February.

I'm really hoping they open up and drive foward in the story. The first half seemed to just drag along

I thought they made up for it by giving us a very good plot-related reason for spending so much time on the Sophia arc. As swp mentioned above, that was a hard-hitting moment for a lot of viewers that probably would not have been so effective had it happened earlier without the buildup. However you are not the only person who expressed this sentiment so perhaps they will have used this break to address this issue (if that tone had been intended to continue prior).

Anyway I'm really excited for this second half! But I'm always excited for zombies

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

This is so great. Jelluz of what's her butt (blonde chick who accidentally shot Norman Reedus) getting to bang tall dark & handsome Shane. I forgot that bit.
