The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 4 Review – Beth Returns

The Walking Dead Season 5 awakens in episode 3 with Beth standing in a hospital unable to understand how she was received. Officer Dawn and the doctor walk into the room. After getting her bearings, she talks with officer stating she is unable to leave until she pays back her time for her being saved.

She is taken under the care of the doctor, but things seem sinister as it seems many people are being held against their will. Moreover, she is getting very sexual behavior by one of the male officers.  Beth just wants to leave and find Daryl but is stuck in the dystopia where everything seems to be fake and forceful. A prison within a hospital she goes about her business, but whatever she takes requires more time spent working it off. As part of her discipline, she is forced to work with the doctor doing things she rather not do such as cutting off arms of infected flee’rs and tending to the sick with prescriptions.
 




 
While it seems on the very faint that people have roles, it really is the wild west. Everyone is ready to make their own moves and no one really trusts anyone else. The doctor uses Beth to kill the only other doctor (doctor was suffering from something and Beth unknowingly gave him the wrong drug). The individuals that play this fake role use new underlings to do their dirty work for them. Beth sees right through what is going on. They hold onto this false notion that someone is coming for them and they must do their part.  She meets someone she can actually relate to, Noah.

Noah has been at the hospital for over a year. It seems that although he is a helpful and strong minded individual, he also is very sinister and is willing to use others to his advantage. Making a plan with Beth to get themselves out of the hospital, they devise a plan that requires getting a hidden key in Officer Dawns room. During this time, she gets caught by her sexual harassment officer friend. Beside her for some reason is a turned patient that ends up getting the best of the officer ripping at his flesh. From there the two make a dash for freedom as Beth is required to shoot her way through walkers. Noah, injured from the escape from the shaft of a service elevator saves himself as Beth lays there in the midst of all the walkers. Behind her the group of officers to save her.

While being brought back into the hospital, she turns and notices Carol on a cart being brought into ER. How does she get there if she was with Daryl and the group? I would like to say the group knows where she is and is coming to get her, but we saw them on that bus. But wait, there were a few people missing…. It seems someone has found the car with the cross on it. We are in for a surprise!

The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 4 Video Sneak Peek

The Walking Dead Season 5 returns with an all new episode 4 next week on AMC. Beth awakens in the same hospital as Rick, looking out over Atlanta’s decrepit infrastructure, she doesn’t know what to think. She is unhinged and scared. She walks over to the door, shouting to be answered when suddenly the door opens and an officer and doctor enter… Something seems sinister. Why would she be stalked? Why would someone only grab her? Maybe this episode answers this. Below is the sneak peek of the episode.
 




 

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 4 – Carol’s Psyche Examined

As the new episode starts we re-examine the psyche of Carol. She has taken upon a new dimension, a new behavior, in which she is trying to protect herself from caring. In doing so, she is desensitizing the children. To not be scared, or fight the emotion is not to be human. It’s not about not being scared, but controlling fear, knowing you can do something about it.

We have seen Carol completely morph due to all the death and sorrow she has had to deal with. Finally we see what it’s like when someone with Carol’s personality and psyche is faced with an enormous amount of stress and fear.

We see two parties, the group to find penicillin and the group to find anything they can use at the prison. Rick and Carol set off into a neighborhood in search of anything that might help their plight. It turns into a rescue operation where a group locks themselves within a room. Daryl, Tyrese, Bill, and Michonne have walked through the woods to where they come upon an abandoned rest stop only to see that it either has been booby trapped or locked using car wiring. Tyrese is still struggling as he should be with what is going on, but is becoming a hazard to all as they are attacked by a group of walkers.

The show really follows these two groups in this episode and the different experiences that have lead them to who they are now. Rick and Carol, especially Rick wants to still be a protector, while Carol sees everyone as needing to be strong and help. The two new members of the group found in the house that Rick and Carol enter are eager to join and help out anyway they can, this is only determined after they answers Ricks answers correctly.


We then pan back to Michonne and Tyrese. Michonne is mad at Tyrese because he is so overtaken by anger, just like she was. This relationship will help both of them cope. Bill finally comes out to tell Daryl that he is the cause and the cause alone for the kids death in the supermarket. He is trying to pin his mistakes on himself and his drinking and Daryl calls him on it.

We delve deeper into the madness we think of Carol and Rick. What makes them wrong verse what makes them right. They hash out about who they are and what they have come to be or what has lead them down the road they are on now. We finally understand why Carol is acting the way she does, why she changes the way she does. And when both of them are just starting to cope or release the bottled anger from within, they walk upon one of them half eaten new group members they had just met. Why didn’t her gun go off? There are a lot of questions about what happened. Did her hubby have something to do with this. Rick and Carol must re-examine who they have brought into their group.

Rick and Carol are left waiting for the other member of the group to show up at the house, but we find out that he never shows. At this moment, we see that Carol has elevated herself to leader status. The episode pans back to michonne and the group as they find the necessary supplies to help all those that are sick. As they are leaving, they run into a little problem. Walkers from all corners of the veterinary hospital come crashing down on them. We see as Bill is left fighting for the ‘meds’ inside his bag that he has come to have a pulling match, that what is left inside that bag is really just a bottle of liquor. Thus guaranteeing his problems and his willingness to put peoples lives in danger and on the back end for this numbing agent.

We see Rick make his stand at the end of the episode to Carol. What she did was wrong. She took justice into her own hands and killed those that could have been saved. Rick gave her an easy way out by allowing her to live. A part of him feels guilty though.
