When the group is heading towards the CDC, the Winnebago starts to smoke and they stop. Shane says he will go ahead into the city and try to find a matching hose for the engine, as the one they have is shot. But then they pull Jim out of the vehicle and lean him up against the tree. When they are ready to leave him behind, they climb back into their respective vehicles, and the Winnebago starts without a hitch and they drive away without any more mention of car troubles.

Rick Grimes: [Rick speaks into the walkie-talkie to tell Morgan about Atlanta, over the 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 Good Story Building Episode
10 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Season 1 Episode 5 of The Walking Dead is a good episode. It shows the aftermath of the walker attack on the group and what the group members are dealing with and going through. This episode focuses more on development of the characters, and less action than previous episodes, but its still an entertaining episode in its own way.

Brief Summary: This episode starts off where the other episode ended, right after the walker attack on the group. Andrea is mourning over Amy and the whole group is saddened over their losses. This episode explores the feelings of the group members and further develops the characters. They turn their focus on finding a cure when it is revealed that Jim was bitten in the walker attack. The group decides to head to the CDC because they believe it would be safe there, under government protection, and they heard rumors that the CDC were working on a cure for the disease and that they were nearing it. The group reach the CDC, but its not at all what they expected to find.

The scene when the doors to the CDC open is one of the best scenes of the first season.

This was another great episode of The Walking Dead and although it doesn't have as much violence and action as previous episodes, it still keeps the viewer engaged.The episode focuses on progressing the story and the characters, and the show only goes up from here. Episodes like this one are the reason why the viewer feels connected to the characters and they must happen in order to further develop our survivors, and not only is it just character development, but its interesting character development. The Walking Dead continues to show us why its great and prepare for most of the story lines of S1 to be tied up in the S1 finale.

My Rating: 8.75/10
