While trying to secure a new home, Rick and his group face challenges, and question the utopia they find themselves in.
“We should scout all the exits and make a plan for emergencies.” -Glen
“I do got a plan. It’s called ‘go out the front door.'” -Nick
Everyone from Rick’s survivor group shows how much better they are at everything.
Aiden walks into warehouse with his sub machine.
Mike “Is that a pool noodle as the silencer for his mac-10?”
Justin “It’s so that if they jump in a pool and have to shoot in the water, it will keep it water level.”
For once, Aiden tries to be a Hero by doing the Noble thing.
Jason “Aiden’s a idiot. He should have seen the grenade in the front.”
Mike “But he’s a complete idiot.”
Aaron “Well he was trying to be less an idiot by listening to Glen.”
Mike “But still an idiot.
Jason “As proven by this scene.”
After Nick abandons them, aka the revolving door scene.
Jason “What do you do about the guy who ran away?”
Aaron “You shoot him!”
Jason “They don’t do that in the City!”
Aaron “Rick would”
Mike “Ricktocracy! Rick for Mayor of Alexandria, 2016.”
Little did we know how true this would be.
Sam hints that his father is abusive
Jason “Do you think Sam’s mom, Jennie, is in the same situation as Carol?”
Carol get’s death glare. “You’re going to have to kill him, Rick.”
“You should know, that I am not combat ready, nor even combat inclined.” Eugene
Gabriel, aka “Angel of Light”, returns. Tearing pages from the bible.
Jason “Oh, I was wondering where he was the entire time!”
Aaron “I knew he was chilling at a Church somewhere the entire time.”
Mike “Oh look, a preacher that’s lost his faith. I haven’t seen that stereotype before.”
Mike “I can’t take him seriously with the techno music playing in the background.”
The worst part about Gabriel’s betrayal, claiming that one day they will choose their lives over the others, is that he is a product of them choosing to save his life in the danger of losing theres and they proved today that they consistently put their life in danger for others.
And more Jessie and Rick flirting
Aaron “She’s hotter with red hair.”
Mike “But she’s cuter as a blond.”
*In case you didn’t already know, Alexandra Breckenridge was previously from American Horror story, where she played a red headed nymphomaniac french maid.
Also, more Glen transforming into a Rick-like leader as time goes by
Jason “Glen’s secret is that his real name ‘Glenneth Palthrow’.”
You will notice that Glen starts making Rick-like choices, being shot with Rick-like poses, make’s
And Noah dies.
Aaron “Dude, #EveryoneHatesChris”
Jason “‘This is just the beginning’. Nope”
And Eugene decides to finally contribute to the team.
“Mother Dick.” – Abraham
“Is that how it works with you people? You leave people behind?” -Abraham

Checking out the Warehouse
Mike “It must be an Amazon Warehouse.”
And after Aiden explodes a zombie grenade
Jason “The greatest damage is the packing peanuts exploded.”
The revolving door scene was very effective setup in showing how one’s selfishness can lead to harm and loss of others. And the entire warehouse scene shows how bad leadership, via Aiden can harm even competent groups
Whereas the construction setting, or “Mother Dick construction co.” shows that even under-competent groups can, with strong leadership via Abraham, can survive. Which is a theme of the entire show.
Mike “Abraham’s smiling! He’s happy to be killing things again.”
“You left her. We both did. That’s just who we are.” Nick
“The others, the one before you. They didn’t panic. We did.” Aiden
This episode does a great job of showing subtle and overt character development. Noah’s arc (hahaha, had to do it) comes to a somewhat satisfying, but noble end. But still don’t really know what this character added to the series as a whole, nor his ultimate purpose. Maybe just to die?
But either way, the writers have successfully set into motion several interesting and dynamic plots that are sure to converge dramatically in the looming season finale.
