Last week’s episode of AMC‘s The Walking Dead pretty much lived up to its name: “Chokepoint.” Situations go from bad to a slow-growing worse with Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Beta (Ryan Hurst) facing off in the first of what now appears to be several more rounds to come. After, Daryl brought Connie (Lauren Ridloff), Henry (Matt Lintz), and Lydia (Cassady McClincy) to Alexandria for a breather before heading off… somewhere.
Meanwhile, Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Carol (Melissa McBride) made The Highwaymen an offer they couldn’t refuse – an offer we definitely didn’t see coming. Meanwhile, the Trade Fair inches closer… so why can’t we shake this “Red Wedding” feeling?
In the following preview for this week’s episode “Scars,” the detour to Alexandria offers a moment Walking Dead fans have been waiting for since the time jump following Rick’s (Andrew Lincoln) “death”: some quality one-on-one time between Daryl and Judith (Cailey Fleming). Daryl tries to convince Judith that Michonne’s (Danai Gurira) right about the communities remaining closed off and how things are better off if he leaves with Lydia and the others.
Except Judith was raised a Grimes, so she would rather have her “family” stay and fight.
Like they did against the Saviors.
And just to make sure she got her point across, she ends it with a simple yet brutally truthful question:
