Ah, come on . . . When Shane shot Otis in the leg, that was some intense drama!
Okay, you're right - that was totally awesome. That whole episode was really good. Him shooting the guy, you not knowing why he's shaving his head in the beginning. Yeah, that was pretty dark.
I think I just didn't like the season opener. It was an hour and a half of nothing. Plus, they had inconsistencies with what they told us last season. And some of the monologues people are spouting are really annoying / not well written.
But you're right. The whole Otis thing was really good storyline.
