Finally! I had my doubts. I halfway suspected that The Walking Dead would go the route of previous seasons and spend whole episodes on each of the survivors, but it surprised me by making this a "hybrid" of sorts, focusing on each member as they try their damndest to reunite. This review will be chock-full of spoilers, so read at your own risk.
We start out with Darryl alongside... I think her name is Beth? It doesn't matter. She's the cute but disposable blonde. Darryl is being is regular bad-ass self, tracking people and protecting women, shooting zombies in the head and recovering his arrows later. Beth is complaining and getting in the way.
It turns out Judith didn't get eaten by zombies. Tyrese yanked her of out of her car seat and grabbed the other two little girls and scurried into the woods. Lizzie seems to be a bordeerline pyschopath. The other little girl is more useless than Judith. I know that's hard to believe, but it's the truth. They run into two survivors. I'm still not sure if they were supposed to be newbies or if they were half-anonymous prison survivors, but I suppose it doesn't matter. They don't last long. Tyrese did meet up with Carol again, but didn't kill her. So I suppose that's a good thing. They got some vague directions to follow the train tracks and saw some weird sign about sanctuary there. I suspect it won't be exactly the salvation they're promised.
Maggie and the other 2 people whose names I forget are also doing okay. Maggie decides to track down the bus Glenn is supposedly on, but it turns out that, after killing all the zombies inside, Glenn isn't one of them.
Instead, Glenn is still at the prison, sleeping on some broken concrete. He packs a bag full of a bunch of shit, straps on his riot gear, grabs the enemy chick and he's on his way to find Maggie. Adorable. Glenn ends up stumbling on Abe and the other 2 people from the comic whose name I don't remember. Great, more newbies.
I'm glad they broke tradition and skipped around a lot in the episode. The show is about the people afterall, and by focusing a whole episode on just 1-2 survivors, it seems less like The Walking Dead and more like The Road.
