Quotes

[first lines]
Gareth: [Out in the woods, Walkers claw and scratch on the walls and glass that surrounds Gareth's group, Gareth watches the Walkers pounding on the glass while laying his hand to it] It's probably pretty stupid to be here. Dangerous. I don't know, maybe not. You can see the threat. That's something. Looking at them makes me feel better about things. My mom used to say that every day above ground was a win. Doesn't really apply anymore but you can still get some perspective. The glass is ...

Sasha finds Bob unconscious and the survivors bring him to the church. Bob tells the truth to his friends and Sasha stays with him while Rick plots the defense of the church against Gareth and the other cannibals.

When Rick and his friends leave the church to chase Gareth and his gang, the cannibals break in the church and the small group that stays there is threatened.

"Four Walls and a Roof" is another outstanding episode of this magnificent Fifth Season, with the perfect combination of drama, suspense and horror: drama with Bob fighting for his life; suspense with the invasion of Gareth and the cannibals; horror with what happens to them. One of the best lines of this show belongs to Maggie and gives the title of this episode, when Gabriel refers to the House of Lord and Maggie tells that the place is only four walls and a roof. Now certainly the story will continue with the flashback relative to the subplot of Beth, Daryl and Carol. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Four Walls and a Roof"

Note: On 18 April 2016, I saw this show again.
