Did You Know?


Rick's (Andrew Lincoln) use of the words, "We have to come for them before they come for us," is the exact same thing he said in episode 6.1, The Walking Dead: First Time Again (2015), when they were leading the walkers in the quarry away from Alexandria. See more »


Glenn and companion enter the armory and close the door. The door is riddled with bullets from pursuers outside as they duck. When they shoot back we see no bullet holes or damaged weapons in the wall behind them. See more »

Tobin: [Carol knocks at Tobin's door delivering him some homemade cookies] Hey, Carol.
Carol Peletier: Tobin. You deserve some cookies.
Tobin: Oh, no, not with the kids as hungry...
Carol Peletier: [Carol hands Tobin the cookies] No, there's plenty. Foraged a lot of acorns.
Tobin: They're pink.
Carol Peletier: Beets.
Tobin: Beets?
Carol Peletier: [Carol smiles at Tobin] It's what makes them sweet.

The tensest episode yet
29 October 2016 | by TheDonaldofDoomSee all my reviews

Wow. Just wow. This is how to perfectly pull off a quiet yet intense episode. It goes out of TWD's comfort zone and is executed with a totally unique style for the show. Oh sure, the Walking Dead has lots of intense, heart-pounding episodes - that's the best thing about it - but nothing like this. The whole episode just has this ever- increasing tension from the beginning. This is helped by its simple, subtle soundtrack that constantly beats along in the background. There's also an interesting choice not to show as much gore as TWD usually does. There are some brutal deaths, throats bring slit and all but the camera actually cuts away to show the expressions on the killers' faces instead. Not only does this emphasise how horrible it is to kill for the first time but more importantly the general lack of graphic detail means the episode never releases its tension. Instead, the tension continues to build. It all ends with a horrifying twist. After all, things had gone too well.

One minor complaint I have is how easy it was to break in, I mean wouldn't there have been more security, CCTV or something? But that doesn't ruin the tension of the episode anyway. As Season 6 approaches the finale, it looks like it might just be the most explosive yet.
