After finding out, vaguely, what has happened back at Alexandria since Rick and Michonne have returned, we find ourselves at the center of the Zombie herd with our three amigos leading the pack. What's that? Gunshots? Others?
Welcome back action and excitement to The Walking Dead ladies and gentleman. There's people we can't see, possibly Wolves, possibly new others that we know nothing about. The only thing we know so far is there is a set of 'rules' that not everyone agrees with.
Our Three Amigos get separated, Abraham with Sasha in scenes of reflection, ammo and Cuban cigars, and Daryl hostage to another group of three unknown others lead by Wade. Daryl, of course, escapes these weaklings and then proceeds to help them in his oh so gentleman like manor. One of the three dies predictably, and the other two steal Daryl's bike and crossbow. I don't know about you, but their future looks a bit grim.
What's interesting about this episode is two fold. Firstly, although we see various scenes in shops and buildings, Abraham and Sasha find reprieve in a small office that seemed to mean more than usual. The computer and accessories so abruptly pushed aside by Abraham's new found ammo, are a reminder about the irrelevant importance of technology. There are boxes of files that once would have been so imperative to a small business that find their way into many of the camera angles, reminding us that what once was, is no more. Abraham reiterates this in a confession of feelings towards Sasha which we've seen coming for quite a while.
Secondly, in a gruesome yet wonderful scene involving the new found bad guys who's faces we don't get to see, one of the men gets bitten and proceeds to enlist the help of another faceless baddie to cut off his arm to stop the spread of infection. They are definitely not Alexandria morons. They are a band of well orchestrated and experienced misfits that have seen enough to know how to handle themselves in the wild.
Alas, another filler, yet I'll let it slide if only for the character focus.
One more thing, how long can Glenn's death be dragged out? There's only so much that can be strung along before the story is no longer story and simply, repetitive hogwash.
