Afterward, Michonne scolds Carl for tempting fate with Deanna — only he reveals that he would have done the same thing for her and views the fierce warrior as a mother.
In the first season, Daryl didn’t want to look you in the face and he was kind of ashamed of who he was and assumed everyone looked down on him.
The episode jumped forward a few weeks after Carl (Chandler Riggs) lost his eye in the deadly battle for Alexandria that saw Jessie (Alexandra Breckenridge) and her two sons all die.
It was an upbeat hour in which Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) hit the road in search of supplies as Alexandria is truly firing on all cylinders as it rebuilds and attempts to re-establish a new civilization.
The film is fierce and stylish, and utterly gripping even though there's the nagging sensation that nothing is happening under the surface.
Thankfully, the actors add plenty of terrific texture to their characters.
