500 gallons of propane were used to create the fiery lake walker trap. The crew used propane instead of gasoline because it's easier to control and less noxious. See more »


Right after Daryl blows up the biker gang with the RPG a motorcycle is seen still upright. There's no way a blast like that would have left a bike standing. See more »

Gang Leader: [in the flashback, we see Daryl, Sasha, and Abraham come upon the gang of bikers sitting in the middle of the road] Why don't you come on out, join us in the road? That's great. Doing well right out of the gate. Now, step two, hand over your weapons.

Turn The Other Way
15 February 2016 | by SpoodermanDerpSee all my reviews

There are only 3 types of The Walking Dead episodes. 1. The One which spends the whole episode developing a character or something (ugh) 2. The One which sets up it's next episode (like a freaking lot of set up) 3. and The One that shows an integral plot line from the comics. (i.e. someone dies)

This episode completely made a new type of Walking Dead episodes. 4. The One that completely turns the other direction and mix everything you love about this show.

Before I praise this brilliant episode, I'll go on and say what I didn't like about this episode, it ended. Nah just kidding, some of the story lines did not end as satisfying as it could've been or they completely turn

This episode finally, FINALLY brought all the story lines together into one epic and large scale episode and intertwined them to make such an extravagant ensemble of a mid season. If there were some subplots that didn't make sense in previous episodes (like Jessie's son and their screwed up family as a whole, or that nurse), they all get a pretty much logical conclusion here, no matter how it may not at all feel satisfying there's no denying what this episode concluded what was brought to the table in previous episodes was something that was needed to further draw a sense of closure and end point for their development.

But with that said, what was so great about this episode? The dialogue, the cinematography, the symbolisms, the acting, the makeup, the striking practicality of the visual effects, being close and at least loyal to the comics and of course, the intense, high scale and breathtaking action in this episode. This episode took a different direction from what we originally thought would happen. When the first half of the season ended, we were teased with something, before this episode rolled it's opening credits, they took an ENTIRELY different direction and I think it was a good decision by the writers. Just when we thought there would be a boring pattern in TWD much like it's parallelism with it's previous seasons (rick and group finds shelter, shelter gets invaded by people or walkers, they get out of the shelter, they find new shelter), this mid-season premiere changes that and spices it all up surprisingly well. It was refreshing for the group to actually do something about the problem instead of just doing what they always did the past few seasons, it was great that we see a clear distinction that the characters HAVE developed and all those boring ass development episodes weren't wasted. This is the kind of episode that we occasionally see in TWD because this episode needed a lot of set- ups to reach it's peak, I mean, who the hell didn't want to see the whole freaking group FINALLY legitimately kick some walker ass in such a bad ass and epic way???

Rick was great in emotionally tackling the shocking events in the episode, the acting was solid from the supporting actors and the whole effort put in to make such a huge and integral episode was amazing.

In the end, this episode was shocking, intense, electrifying, mesmerizing, and breathtaking. They took another direction, and they found a way out, a way for this show to keep on excelling at what it does best.

Verdict: 9.9/10
