The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 15 Sneak Peek And Thoughts

Episode 14 of the walking dead really took a turn. Many things culminated to an episode that shocked the television world. The problem is, it all could have been prevented. Rick and the group already pointed out that these people were weak. They were a danger to themselves and to others (the group). Going back to my original statement, the weakness we see; this naivety stems all the way back on Hershel’s farm. The innocence; the not wanting to kill the walkers… This new group of individuals haven’t really faced anything extremely difficult yet, so they have no idea how to react to anything in the proper manner. Will Rick treat them like Maggie and her father at the farm or not? They have been sheltered from the realities beyond the wall. In addition, it seems that this group within the enclosure use outsiders to do their bidding. Rick’s group seems to be doing all the heavy lifting, when in the end they are being used and exposed. Who are the real mathematicians here? Is Rick and the group really in full control? We all knew someone was going to die due to their negligence, but maybe that is what it takes for them to realize they cannot survive unless Rick and the group are completely in rule.

Furthermore, Gabriel shouldn’t come as a shock to the readers of the comic and the viewers of the television series. In fact, Gabriel has this false notion that he can somehow repent for his previous actions by trying to do something he finds good. Why the group finds the need to keep him around when he is constantly getting them in trouble is a mystery. Everything about the man screams false and dangerous, which includes his name.
 




 
On the contrary, it is weird though. We have become so numb and humanized towards Rick’s group that sometimes we sympathize their need to do things that might be a little egregious or unnecessary. Here is a question. How would you view Ricks group if the show originally followed the group of individuals within this enclosure? How would we really look at them? How would you look at Rick’s group? Would they be savages? Would you think they are too aggressive? In my minds eye, I believe they still rationally think and have experience. They aren’t running around doing what they will and acting on impulse… all the time.

We look back on all the people we come across and each one of them in a different situation with different experiences. Many of the things they did and impulses acted on were not the proper responses, but survival. Rick and the group share these experiences moving back and forth from crazy to sanity. The only one who hasn’t waivered too much has been Daryl… none of this really is a major change to him. The only one that properly stands the tests of this storyline is Daryl. Now, even he is being waivered which could lead to serious repercussions.

I seem to be spitting all over the page but this far into the show, we must kind of understand the symbolism of this new network of people. We are faced with individuals that are probably years away from where Rick’s group used to be… so how will it be dealt with? This is the major test of human morality. Or are these calculated risks this group is making? Things to think about.

Below the sneak peek of episode 15.
