The Walking Dead episode 4x10 4

The Survivors Contemplated Following the Tracks in This Week’s Episode

Last week when The Walking Dead returned from its long hiatus, viewers found out what Rick, Carl and Michonne had been up after the prison massacre. Rick, nearly comatose from his wounds, left Carl alone to fend for himself as the kid dealt with his anger over Rick’s management, Hershel’s death, and his missing baby sister Judith. Meanwhile, Michonne’s grief nearly swallowed her whole, but the warrior was saved after she got a glimpse at what giving up and giving in would offer her. By the end of the episode, the three found each other and were reunited in a touching reunion scene. This week in episode 410, viewers learned what became of all the others who may or may not have survived the Governor’s attack on the prison. So now that you’re all caught up on what you may have missed, let’s follow the tracks and discuss this week’s episode, “Inmates.”

“I’m starting to think it’s easier to just be afraid.”All of the survivors have been divided into groups in such a way that people are now partnered up with folks we’ve never really seen them interact with before. Beth and Daryl are taking their budding friendship on the road. The tough exterior Beth had begun to hone at the prison has begun to crumble in the wake of her father’s execution and Maggie’s unknown whereabouts. While the young woman alternates from burning the pages of her diary where she hopefully wrote about feeling safe and content, Daryl has begun to withdraw back into himself. He never was the chatty type, but this new guy is eerily quiet. Maggie, Sasha and Bob are all stunned at what happened. While Sasha and Bob are beginning to grow close, Maggie’s grief over the loss of her family has caused her to slip into kamikaze mode. Forgoing all safety to learn the truth about Glenn’s fate, Maggie is willing to rush head on into danger for answers. As everyone is in flight or fight mode, Tyreese is stuck carrying for baby Judith (YAY!), and those two crazy little girls Carol was taking care of. Out of everyone, Tyreese got the short end of the stick. As interesting as it is watching this big, hammer-wielding man care for small children, he’s the one most at risk of becoming Walker food now that he has a crying baby on his hip. Speaking of Carol, the writers helped a brutha out by having Carol pop up out of nowhere to help Tyreese take care of the girls. I just hope she keeps mum about burning Ty’s girlfriend alive. All of these groups have different missions, and it was pretty cool watching these people interact with each other. At the prison, the original survivors didn’t always interact with the newbies, so it’s interesting watching them do so now. As all the guys have somehow found one another, Glenn was revealed to still be at the prison. At first it appeared he’d go it alone, but then he hooked up with Tara, the last remaining member of the Governor’s crew. (More…)
