Unlike last week, which was a deeper look at only a few characters, this episode is spread out over multiple groups and focuses primarily on the present, with the exception of a nicely placed monologue overlay spoken by Beth at the outset, as she reads a letter she presumably wrote to Jimmy or her mother in her journal about hope when they were just getting settled at the prison. This serves to set up the emotional state nicely of not only Beth, but of the whole group, and demonstrate just how much they’ve lost.
While this week’s episode was less focused than last week’s on probing the psyches of the characters, The Walking Dead always does a nice job of creating memorable moments in each episode. Plus, there’s more action and suspense in this one, as we follow the characters unaware of what carnage they might find around the next corner. We get a glimpse into how the various individuals have responded to having everything taken away from them. And there’s one reunion.
Here are some quotes from the episode to keep you guessing as we wait for the next episode. I’m not including who said what, because I have to leave you something to wonder about.
- “Please don’t go.”
- “Shit happens. Not everything needs to mean something.”
- “You found us. I knew you would.”
- “I have to be here. I need to see their faces.”
So what are your biggest questions, and who do you want to see most in this episode? Share your thoughts in the comments. I may not answer your questions because I don't want to give away too much, but I'd love to hear what you're looking forward to!
