I think he's a jackass period. But as to knowing or not that she was, I can't make that call and speculate what he knew or didn't know.

I think he has a point, in that it is HIS land, so he gets to make the rules... if not letting go of the past and clinging to some desperate (and woefully misplaced) hope that he might be able to save his infected friends and family one day is the only way he can cope with the end of the world... he's entitled to that delusion.

However, Hershel had to know that the girl he picked up (24 hours or less before our merry band of survivors showed up) was almost certainly the girl they were looking for.

Hershel claims he knew nothing about her being picked up and tossed into the barn. Then again, I don't see how anyone couldn't talk about her, how otis found her, etc.

Yep, just like when the kid ran up in front of Herschel and Rick and says "it happened again!"

I agree. Otis must have said something... she was easily the youngest in the barn... finding her had to have had an impact on Otis.

Agreed. Herschel is a d-bag for letting them search for her (and making us watch).

I didn't mind watching... I thought Sophia had been rescued/abducted by another band of survivors who be next group these guys hook up with then things with Hershel came to their inevitable (and probably messy) end. I for one was surprised when she walked out of barn, I really didn't think they'd kill her.

Maybe Herschel isn't such a d-bag. If he true-ly believes that they can be helped, maybe Herschel hid the girl from the group because he knows the group kills zombies. That means he could be saving her life by keeping her secret(in his mind).

Also, in his own way he was trying to get them to give up the search by constantly telling them to leave.

I think all this gives Herschel more depth than he had in the comics.

Granted the die-hards may like it, but I'm going to assume they're more likely to download the torrents instead of paying for AMC.
I'm really hoping that they head to a certain place that's in the comics before the end of the second season. There's a lot that I hope will happen...
