Analyzing Episode 2 of "The Walking Dead" with Frank Darabont and Others

This article is for those who have seen Episode 2 of "The Walking Dead." This five minute reel for "Guts" breaks down the episode with help from director Frank Darabont, actors Andrew Lincoln, Steven Yeun, Laurie Holden, Michael Rooker, executive director Gale Ann Hurd and many others. Character motivations, character arcs, the dissolution of society and primal lust are just a few of the topics discussed in the clip.

For those who have not seen the episode, what are you waiting for? The clip is inside (with spoilers).
