While this episode wasn’t as painful as the last one it still hurt. We had to watch our favorite characters deal with the pain and suffering they’ve been facing. Maggie had to gain the will the will to live again, Sasha had to let go of her anger and stop pushing others away, and Daryl had to feel the pain, let himself grieve and not keep it bottled inside.
It was nice to see that despite what all Eugene has done and what all he’s put the members of the group through, especially Abraham, that they still care enough to not let him drink the potentially dangerous water. I think that the fact that Abraham was the one who knocked the bottle out of his hands really says something too. It’s a subtle way of telling the audience that things are okay now between them.
The scene in the barn when they’re around the campfire was great. I loved it when Rick saif “We are the walking dead” made me so freaking happy because it’s in the comics.
Then when the walkers attacked and the storm was raging on outside and one by one each member joined Daryl in barricading the door. Words weren’t even needed and the symbolism was wonderful. Each of them going through this inner storm and none of them being able to handle it on their own. They have to come together and rely on one another to be able to withstand the storm and make it through to the other side.
Lastly, there’s Aaron (the guys who shows up at the end and says he wants to talk to Rick) who I looked up his name on IMDb. At this point in the show, after everything that’s happened, and all that we’ve been through… kill him. For the love of all that is holy, KILL HIM. Nothing good can come from meeting this guy! Kill him and run like the devil is behind you because that’s probably what’s going to be chasing them.
*Sigh* This show is going to be the death of me. Anyways, I look forward to next weeks episode and can’t wait to see what they through at us next.
What did you guys think of this newcomer?
