[first lines]
Father Gabriel Stokes: [Father Gabriel reads from the Bible at Beth's burial] We look at not what can be seen, but we look at what can not be seen. For what can be seen is temporary... but what cannot be seen is eternal.

BEST EPISODE EVER...after smoking my fifth joint
10 February 2015 | by hishireySee all my reviews

Many have labeled this episode as "shocking" or "the best episode of The Walking Dead ever." Leaving me to wonder, how, many drugs were they on when they watched this episode? With an absurd amount of dream sequences, I can see how stoners on a high would absolutely love this. I have to admit, those completely pointless, contrived dream sequences would be pretty cool on drugs. I guess I do have to agree with the people calling this episode shocking. I was SHOCKED at how BAD it was. But, this did teach me a valuable lesson; get high before watching the next episodes of this show! Then, no matter how badly it sucks, I'll at least be able to remember that day as the best acid trip ever!
