Storyline

Rick and the others are still prisoners in the boxcar but the time of reckoning has come. They prepare to take on their captors by making weapons from whatever they can find and just wait for them to open the boxcar door. Those in charge however are one step ahead of them. Not far from Terminus Carol, Tyreese and baby Judith hear gunfire and soon after overhear someone talking about Michonne on his walkie talkie. They tie him up and while Tyreese says behind to keep an eye on him, Carol heads off to Terminus to save her friends. Written by garykmcd

A premiere we deserved!
13 October 2014 | by kevinpaul1999See all my reviews

The walking dead season 5 premiere has become one of the best premiere since the pilot . The blood , the violence , the emotions , the history , the return are key words on this episode . In fact , it was so well done that the episode just flew past the viewers .

Season 5 has started off promisingly . The make up was outstanding and the zombies look gnarly as hell. Some scenes will make you grab tight your pillow , sofa or whatever your sitting on .

We can see the slow but steady transformation that I'm sure is just beginning of Farmer Rick to Bada** Rick . Greg Nicotero has done a phenomenal job with the opener , he deserves some credit as well. Scott M. Gimple requires equal praise as the show runner . The way the last 3 episodes of season 4 came out was really well done and this episode lives up to every bit of it, if not better.

The episode ended satisfying many for sure , but I'd recommend sitting down for a little longer if the fans really want to loose their sh**.
