This episode went back to some of the more brutal episodes of the first three seasons. We’ve seen Carol’s daughter Sophia walk out of a barn as a walker and shot in the head. We’ve even seen Carl shoot Shane, a reversal of the plot twist that last Sunday’s episode put forth. There was also the child walker that Rick put down in the one of the first episodes of the show. He fought she was a human.
Now we have two children killed simply because: Lizzie was crazy and killed her sister to prove she would come back as herself and 2. Lizzie meets her death at the hands of Carol.
Lizzie mentioned that Judith was next, so Carol and Tyreese saved Judith and who knows how many people, (and mice/rats). It would have been dangerous to take Lizzie into other groups of people, she was a psycho and had to be put down. This is what must happen in the zombie apocalypse. The show runners didn’t show Lizzie get her head blown off, but they did guarantee that no viewer will look at flowers the same way.
Check out this line, there is an extensive interview with actor Lawrence Gilliard Jr. who plays Bob.
There are a lot of thoughts online about what Terminus will hold for the survivors. My opinion is that Terminus is a place that will only hold the strongest of survivors. This could bode well for Rick, Carl, Daryl, Michonne and a few others, but not for Beth who has already been taken by person or persons unknown.
According to IMDbPro: Season 5, Episode 1: Episode #5.1 Rick and the group are heading to Washington D.C., where they meet new danger and a new enemy. Once again, Rick must do whatever it takes to keep the rest of the group safe.
Please post your thoughts about anything TWD below, the season is coming to an end, we only have so much time before some of our questions will be answered.
