As boring as the search for the little girl has been, it astounds me how stupid these people are...in regards to their host!
Herschel has given them a place to stay that is safe, he's provided for them medically, and they return the favor by stealing his horse, wandering around with guns, and not honoring his wishes about dealing with Walkers.
To continue my vent, Andrea has got to be the worst character on the show. She continues to be stupid and selfish. I'd leave her behind before any of the other survivors.
I will agree, my wife and I both think Daryl is now the most likable character on the show.

Whether they search for Sophia is purely a question of what they should be doing with their time while they wait. Shane's argument that they shouldn't keep looking is because he feels it's more likely that someone will get hurt or killed searching the zombie filled woods; Shane's argument isn't that they need to move out of Hershel's farm. Rick's reason for continuing the search isn't just that he feels responsible or that he feels sympathetic to Sophia or Carol, it's also that he doesn't know what else to do with his time. And I have a suspicion the Daryl would be out searching for Sophia even if Rick called off the search; he's too much of a loner to be satisfied hanging around with the rest of the group, and his emotions would probably force him to go searching
even ifespecially if someone told him not to.
Of course, even though I can understand and sympathize with all of this, I have to agree that this season really seems to be dragging it's ass along as slowly as possible, and the search for Sophia seems to be eating up way more screen time than I'd like.
We're sorry, we are unable to Cthulhu.boat. Please migraine the cattle prod when the fat guitar makes wallpaper. If the sun is too long, take five ducks and melt them on a post. Thank you for your Volkswagon. -SJ

Oh I agree! It's a weak McGuffin for precisely that reason. If she were the only pretext for remaining on Herchel's farm, that would be one thing, but no one is really talking seriously about moving Carl at this point, and so the search doesn't really tie much together. I'm hoping that it will be some great dramatic reveal, but it would have to be pretty shattering in order to justify the pointlessness of the mystery. Sophia's either alive and we'll see a tearful reunion with her mom; dead, in which case we'll see a tragic meltdown by her mom; or zombiefied, in which case, if the laws of drama hold, her mother will be forced to be the one to put her down (or else Daryl will in order to spare Carole, thus solidifying their burgeoning relationship).

Carl keeps them tied to the farm, for now, but Sophia keeps them split up and out and about. I don't think they'll off Sophia. At this point, I'm wondering which of the farm residents will live and which are involved in the barn secret. Obviously, they need a demographic replacement for Amy, so there's a good chance Maggie will join them on the road. They could use a doctor but I have a feeling that Hershel has too much to do with the secret and wouldn't leave the farm if they dragged him. Jimmy and Patricia seem expendable at this stage, though Jimmy might fill a niche that the audience in being a quasi-rival for Glenn, and depnding on how they off Hershel, might hold a grudge and set the stage for future conflict if they bring him along. Will they burn the barn with all zombie-souls inside? Can't waste ammo if they can help it.

Well the show's been content to play fast and loose with the source materials, so all bets are off about how things will play out, but my guess is that they'll be back on the road, and a bit leaner population-wise, any episode now.

Sophia is an innocent 12 year old girl whom we assume wants to be found.

There is a bit of a Checkov's gun situation being set up with all these missing characters. When a character disappears under such circumstances, there's an expectation that they WILL show up again, and in a dramatically satisfying way, wether is Merle, Sophia, or the father and son from early in Season 1 (who Rick still tries to contact), they either need to show up alive or show up dead. They can't just keep not showing up.

1) IMDB lists the actress playing Sophia as appearing in episode 7, so she could be back as either herself or a walker.
2) Morgan and his son Duane do return in the comics. However, it is not any time soon if they stick somewhat close to the comics.
3) There was some online speculation that Merle would become "The Governor" on the TV show, a memorable villain in the comic series. However, I think some folks behind the TV series killed that idea not long ago.
