Rick and the survivors find a quarry with thousands of walkers blocked by heavy trucks, and he begins to plan how to take them far from their community. Rick is supported by Deanna but the reluctant Carter unsuccessfully plots a scheme against him. While training the group, one of the trucks falls off the cliff letting the walkers escape and the plan needs to be immediately put into action without much preparation. Daryl on his motorcycle and Sasha and Abraham in a car herd the walkers through the road to a distant point far from Alexandria. Will Rick's plan work?

Did You Know?


As Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the group begin leading the herd away from the quarry a couple of signs can be seen that read 'Quint Materials Company'. Director, Greg Nicotero's all time favourite movie is Jaws (1975) in which Quint (played by Robert Shaw) is a primary character. See more »


Instead of moving the quarry walkers closer to Alexandria, they could just be directed over the cliff. As seen later, their skulls explode simply by walking into barriers. Since they are distracted by almost anything (and may migrate), there is nothing to stop the horde (once paraded miles away) from reversing their course and heading right back toward Alexandria, anyway.

[first lines]
Morgan Jones: [in a flashback, Rick shoots Pete] Rick?
Rick Grimes: [in the present, Rick gets ready to lead the group into moving the herd of walkers] I know this sounds insane, but this is an insane world. We have to come for them before they come for us. It's that simple.

Inspired by memento
12 October 2015 | by seshasai-trisSee all my reviews

The screenplay of this episode is inspired by Nolan's memento. I didn't see it intriguing as the climax of the episode is already shown in the opening shot and there is absolutely nothing that happens in the episode. The only major plot that happens in the next 55 minutes is that Rick scheming to help the people get to a secure location, which is pretty much the same plot as every episode. I might get a lot of hate and down votes for putting it this way, but I feel the show writers need to stop being lazy and portray their thoughts meticulously and cleverly.

Would you take if a director makes a one hour show with a one line plot? I don't think so. Even if you scratch my lines and say that there is much of characterisation left, you are wrong. We all have seen countless episodes that built up the characters. Now all we need is some progress in the show.

The zombies are great , the killings are cool , but just ramp up the story!!

My rating 8/10
