"Infected" continued where episode one left off.  With Patrick having had died at the end of the previous episode, now "awakened."  He stumbles into the cell block living quarters and so begins the feeding frenzy.  But things don't go all panic mode until the next morning.  How convenient!

This episode has several key points you don't want to miss.  For one, Rick being reaffirmed as leader of the group despite whether he wants it or not.  The continuing growth of Carl with the end result of him getting his gun back from Rick.  And the continued traitor in the midst subplot.  With the group feeling the pressures of living in a confined space and the gates being slowly over turned each episode, it's just a matter of time before Rick and gang hits the road.  The trailer for the next episodes hints at this.

Definitely, this has been one of the more hard episodes to watch in a long while.  From the Patrick feeding, to the pigs to Tyreese's emotional break down.  Overall, I really enjoyed this episode more than the first and would recommend it.
