Abraham's security setup is bad, both in terms of walker and human threat. This, coupled with his lack of understanding the experience of his crew with guns and dealing with walkers, unintentionally casts doubt that he was ever in the military (much less a sergeant). See more »

Reg Monroe: [Noah talks to Reg Monroe about Alexandria] Sorry I'm late. The power's out again. How is it that you called this extremely early morning meeting, yet I'm the one bringing breakfast?
Noah: 'Cause you're a good guy?
Reg Monroe: The evidence seems to go in that direction. What's up?
Noah: Can we start, meeting in the mornings?
Reg Monroe: So I can bring you steel-cut oatmeal and ask you why we're meeting?

Season 5 is the new best season
21 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

this episode really opened my eyes, and made me see that.T This episode was one I'll always remember. Now let's dissect the episode:

ACTING: 10/10: The acting was as always, top notch. Steven Yeun killed it, and really made the episode as good as it was. Noah was also top notch, as was Aiden, for some bits.

DIALOGUE: 9/10: The dialogue was pretty good in this episode, what they said made sense, and it worked with the situation. Pretty good.

PLOT: 10/10: The plot maintains itself throughout the episode and fits within itself perfectly throughout all 45 minutes. Very tightly crafted, and well written.

DIRECTING: 9/10: The directing was also pretty good, and was very effective for the episode

SCORE: 3/5: The Walking Dead never had a great score, but it fit with the episode, but there were no tracks i'm going to remember

EFFECTS: 5/5: Romero-Style zombie deaths. All i gotta say.

ORIGINALITY: 4/5: Not a new story line for the zombie genre, but added new elements, that wasn't in the comic, and the spinning door is one of the greatest uses of practical things in this apocalypse we've gotten

CINEMATOGRAPHY: 4/5: Everything looked good

ENTERTAINMENT: 5/5: The deaths were particular highlights, but I was never bored during the episode and was always on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was going to happen next, which deserves a perfect score.

EDITING: 4/5: Not much to say. Effective.

REWATCHABILITY: 5/5: This will be an episode all TWD fans will remember and rewatch FOR YEARS. Truly a masterpiece.

I give this episode a 93%, or a 9.3/10. An almost perfect episode, with very little things to complain about. Gimple is taking full control of the story and crafting it into an int resting direction, and getting damn good writers to help him on the way
