Daryl on his motorcycle and Sasha and Abraham in a car herd the walkers through the road to a distant point far from Alexandria. Will Rick's plan work?

[first lines]
Morgan Jones: [in a flashback, Rick shoots Pete] Rick?
Rick Grimes: [in the present, Rick gets ready to lead the group into moving the herd of walkers] I know this sounds insane, but this is an insane world. We have to come for them before they come for us. It's that simple.

walking dead at its best
11 October 2015 | by cpovermanSee all my reviews

the walking dead returns with a bang. Last years premiere was one of the best episodes in TV history. This one beats last years by a small margin. the character development in this episode is amazing. Andrew Lincoln puts on a Emmy worthy performance in this episode . His performance is top notch and he and Melissa McBride deserve a lot for their incredible acting. The flashbacks were kind of annoying but were very important to the story. So i give acting 10/10 writing 9/10. Their were a lot of funny dialog's between characters. Overall this was another episode that shows why this show is such a big success and i have high hopes for this season. Ps: a very big cliffhanger that you'll want the next episode right away
