Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Rick, Carl and Michonne are getting ever closer to Terminus. They've had a rough time on the road and can only hope that what they find there is better than what they have now. In the night, they are taken prisoner by Joe and the others. It's clear that Rick is the man they've been hunting but Daryl tries to explain that they are good people. Joe won't hear any excuses. When it appears that Carl is about to be raped, Rick shows just how violent he is prepared to be to defend his family and friends. When they finally reach Terminus everything seems to be order - until Rick sees someone using the watch Hershel gave Glenn. Written by garykmcd

What the show should have always been.
31 March 2014 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This episode represents what The Walking Dead should always be. It was expertly paced (the Lost-style flashback structure worked very well!), the camera-work was outstanding from the usual episodes, and the direction? Great, as is always the case with Breaking Bad veteran Michelle MacLaren. For the first time all year, I've felt that the characters I'm attached to were in serious danger. For the first time in a long time, I felt like there was a sh**load of weighted symbolism in the framing and that I'm watching something that the creators really care about. It's strange how much the quality of a show can improve when you give people like Gimple and MacLaren the reins. Scott M. Gimple has taken the mess left behind by Glen Mazzara and turned it around completely, and I couldn't be more thankful. Rick's epic kill was not only shocking and disgusting, but weighted in symbolism. Things like more variety in camera shots was something that added so much to the experience it's unbelievable. I'm not exaggerating at all. When AMC lets The Walking Dead take chances, this is what we get.
