The flowers we always see with Carol (Melissa McBride) on her wardrobe or even in her new home are a direct reference to the "look at the flowers" moment in season 4. See more »


The trash people speak, dress, and behave as if they have never been around civilization, that it is decades into the future, or they are from another planet. Rick and the others act as if nothing is odd about it. See more »

I've never written a review and English isn't my mother tongue but i have to bust some steam off. When I watched this episode I suddenly realized something. On German television we have a channel called Tele5 which often shows really cheap looking post-apocalyptic-action movies. And in this episode of TWD when Rick was standing on that little hill made of trash in front of an unbelievable shitty looking green-screen-wannabe wrecking yard with that stupid wrecking yard tribe cast around him I thought for a moment: this is just like Tele5 goddammit. The bad dialogues, the poorly directed action scenes, the story which is going nowhere over the last's all fkn Tele5...and it made me sad.
