The Walking Dead - Episode 5.11 - The Distance - Detailed Opening Scene Synopsis



Thanks to our good friends over at The Spoiling Dead Fans for sending us this info.

Obviously don't read if you don't want to know.

The scene opens with the group hanging out in the barn doing stuff and thangs. Daryl is cleaning his BFF aka his crossbow. Rick is sitting on the ground with Judith, while Carl is messing with a piece of wood off the barn's wall.

Maggie comes into the barn announcing to the group, "This is Aaron." Daryl immediately approaches the barn door and makes sure there is no one outside. He then conducts a nice little TSA frisk on Aaron. Maggie states that she has already searched Aaron and removed his weapon.

The group, wary of this stranger, surrounds Aaron with their weapons pointed at him. Awkward Aaron offers an awkward "hi". Rick asks Maggie for Aaron's weapon. She hands over his pistol and officer Rick assertively checks it for ammo.

Rick asks Aaron if he wants something from them. Sasha says that he has a camp that he wants the group to "audition" for. Aaron explains that he believes the group would be valuable additions to his community.

Aaron asks Sasha to hand Rick his backpack and says there is an envelope in the front pocket. Aaron explains he couldn't just come along without some proof that his community exists. He shows Rick a photo of his community which features large walls. He mentions that their walls are strong and nothing dead or alive can get in. He says that security and their survivors are their top priorities. Aaron also mentions that it is his job to convince the group to follow him.

Before Aaron can explain anymore, an unamused Rick walks straight up to him and delivers an unforgiving punch right in the face, knocking him out cold.
