Viewers were mixed on the Season 2 premiere of AMC's The Walking Dead.

*SPOILERS* The 90-minute debut saw Rick (Andrew Lincoln) rescue and then subsequently lose Sophia (Madison Lintz), Shane ponder leaving the group -- possibly with Andrea joining him after a blowout with Dale (Jeffrey DeMunn) -- and a handful of some of the most disgusting zombie offings, Rick and Lori's (Sarah Wayne Callies) son, Carl (Chandler Riggs), was shot.

"You expect to have a run-in with a zombie in this new world; you less expect that you're going to be shot by another human," executive producer Gale Anne Hurd tellsThe Hollywood Reporter. "It's clear that rifle was not wielded by a zombie. You can't forget that those threats are still out there."

Here's what people are saying about the return of the show:
