The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 2 and 3 Review: Part 1

For those of you who haven’t gotten around to catching up on the magnificent show that is the walking dead, this post plans to briefly review episodes 2 and 3 of season 5.

Much has occurred since the first episode. We leave Rick and the group in the woods when they fall upon a pastor who is fighting off hungry walkers. Standing on a boulder, Rick and the group free him from his captivity, to which, Rick asks him if he has anything of significance (gun or sharp object on him) on him. Stunned that they would think a pastor would carry such a vial object, he would succumb to answering, No. Rick goes over the ground rules and the questions that he must ask. They obviously looking for shelter, the priest takes them to his church, “a roof and four walls.” It is here that the priest explains that he has been by himself living on food that was harvested for a food drive but went south during the apocalypse. Everyone seems to be on edge, including Abraham. But no one is going to leave Rick.



The food has run dry and some of the group must go on a scavenging errand to this place the priest knows. Hesitant to leave the safety of the church, Rick forces the priest that he must go and that he wasn’t asking. Rick, Bob, the priest and others make it to this foraging ground where they gather the food they need when they are attacked by walkers. Bob is attacked and taken under the water leaving us to wonder what has just occurred. Seconds later, he resumes on his feet and they wrestle the walker to his demise. Just as things seem to calm down, a walker is chasing the priest and the best thing he can do is to spread his body like he is the reincarnation of Christ. He is saved and once again, the group return to the church. As they return, Carl is found staring at the side of the church noticing something. He calls his father, Rick over to observe. Writing on the wall indicates that the priest has a sinister past.

That night, everyone eats and enjoys their food while Daryl is out with Carol looking for Beth. In the dark of the woods, inebriated, Bob is relieving himself when out of nowhere is knocked out. The haze falls from Bobs eyes to reveal the one man he really didn’t want to see again. Gareth stands before him mocking Bobs mercy at Terminus. Like all evil characters do, Gareth talks for an extended period as he munches on food. He explains to Bob that although what had happened to him at Terminus was unfortunate, he wasn’t particularly mad at Bob, rather is doing what he has to do to survive. This is when Gareth reveals to Bob that he is savoring the morsel of Bobs flesh. The camera pans out to reveal Bob legless. The thoughts of this makes everyone cringe. 

Bob screams in agony and mental anguish, but there is a splash of laughter making Gareth and the others skeptical. They think that he is becoming hysterical…
