Wow! So many questions after last night’s episode! I can’t believe how many people totally seem to have lost their minds. What did you think?
First off, the scene with Deanna and her family, obviously morning for Aiden was just plain creepy! Deanna totally looks like a woman on the edge, almost zombie-like. She also looked like she is ready to qwell all of the group now. She is hating the fact that she seems to be no longer in control. She couldn’t even accept the nifty casserole from Carol. Shame on you Deanna!
We see flashes of Deanna interviewing Nicholas and hear him recount the story of how Aiden died. What a dirty rotten liar! He puts Aiden’s death all on our group, especially Glenn. He doesn’t want to look like the coward that he is. Somebody needs to take this guy out! I was yelling at my TV!
Glenn recounts the entire warehouse fiasco to Rick. Rick knows that the people of Alexandria are not survivors. Glenn insists they can be taught. “We’ve got to make this work,” he says. Carol has a meeting with Rick to insist that he do something about Pete. She lets him know that Sam once found Jessie on the floor unconscious. Rick walks to the lake and stares out at the water, gripping his stolen revolver. Pete sees Rick and asks if he’s okay. “Keep walking,” Rick warns.
Rosita and Michonne are really worried about Sasha. They haven’t seen her anywhere around and fear that she is outside the walls. “She’s hunting them,” Michonne realizes. Michonne and Rosita find Sasha slaughtering a large cluster of walkers. Michonne and Rosita join Sasha’s side and kill the walkers together. Afterwards, Sasha screams at them to leave her alone. She then breaks down and admits her guilt over having once told Noah he wouldn’t survive.
Rick tells Deanna about Pete and is shocked to learn that Deanna has been protecting Pete because his medical skills are an asset. Rick suggests they separate Jessie and Pete — and if Pete doesn’t cooperate, they kill him.
“We don’t kill people, this is civilization,” Deanna says. “I wouldn’t kill you,” she says. “I’d just send you away.”
Carl follows Enid into the woods. he wants to find out what she is doing out there. She catches him. They talk a bit. They playfully run through the trees and stop short when they spot a walker. She grabs a timer out of her backpack and throws it out towards the walker.
A hoard comes through and they hide in a hollowed out tree.
“It’s their world, we’re just living in it,” she whispers. Carl touches her hand as they lock eyes.
Glenn finds Nicholas cleaning the blood soaked van. He warns him not to go outside, or to let anyone else go out unprotected.
You’re just a coward,” Glenn says. “People like you are supposed to be dead.”
Later Nicholas sneaks outside and digs up the gun that Rick buried before the group went into Alexandria. Daryl and Aaron spot a campfire in the distance. They follow the trail and come across a pile of freshly hacked limbs. They find a woman’s naked and disemboweled body tied to a tree, a “W” carved into her forehead. “This just happened,” Aaron notes grimly.
Rick finds Jessie in her garage and tells her that he knows about Pete. “I can take care of myself,” she says. Undeterred, Rick barges into Jessie’s living room. “If you don’t fight, you die,” he says. “And I don’t want you to die. I can help you.” Jessie wonders if Rick would do the same for anyone else and he admits he wouldn’t. Jessie whispers, “yes,” just as Pete gets home. Pete demands that Rick leave, but Rick refuses and instead orders Pete to leave with him. Pete explodes with anger and takes a swing at Rick. The two begin brawling, eventually crashing through the front window and out into the street.
Pete punches Jessie as she tries to intervene. Deanna orders them to stop. “Or what?” Rick yells, brandishing his gun. “You’re gonna kick me out?” In front of Jessie’s house, a bloodied Rick insists that the community’s ignorance of the real world is going to get people killed.
I’m not going to stand by and just let it happen,” he vows.
But before he can continue, Michonne suddenly smacks Rick in the head from behind, knocking him unconscious.
We only have one more episode left in the season. Next week’s finale will be 90 minutes long. I can’t wait to see it! Will Morgan show up in the last episode? Is that whose campfire Daryl and Aaron spotted in the woods? Or is it the next bad group that we all know are coming? In the comics, this group is called the Scavengers, but with all the Wolves references, I think they will change it up. Let me know what you thought of the episode and here is a sneak peek for next week!
