Storyline

Rick tries to make contact with Morgan to tell him his location. Back at camp, after the fight with the zombies, Jim has been bitten and is slowly beginning to change; Andrea mourns over Amy's death; and Shane blames it all on Rick for leaving. Now that camp isn't safe anymore, Rick decides that it's time for them all to move out. He plans to take them to the C.D.C., a military base, to find a cure for Jim and, hopefully, more survivors.

Quotes

[first lines]
Rick Grimes: [into walkie-talkie] Morgan: I don't know if you're out there, I don't know if you can hear me, maybe you're listening right now. I hope so. I found others: my family, if you can believe it. My wife and son, they're alive, I wanted you to know that. There's something else you *need* to know: Atlanta isn't what we thought, it's not what they promised, the city is... do not enter the city. It belongs to the dead now.

Very Engaging Episode!
12 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fifth episode in this awesome series is very entertaining, despite the lack of zombie action. This episode gives us the feeling of purpose and a sense that it's time to take action or in other words, find a cure. From start to finish, we are engaged into the episode and I felt like this one flew by. The emotional core is still there especially as we see towards the end.

This episode, "Wildfire" deals with the aftermath of the walker attack. When they realize it's not safe to stay in their camp, they decide to head out to the CDC where hopefully they could find a cure.

Overall, this an effective episode and quite an emotional one as well. This is the first time we see Noah Emmerich in his cameo and he does a good job. I wish this episode never ended because it had the perfect cliffhanger and I wanted more. I rate this episode 9/10.
