Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
The majority of this week’s episode follows the relatively low-key template set last week: lots of sweaty yelling in rooms, forests and prison cells, with only the occasional glimpse of your actual undead. With Rick (Andrew Lincoln) still suffering the kind of post-traumatic stress that seems to exclusively afflict TV characters – causing him to gurn, hallucinate his dead wife, and overact wildly – it’s left to Glen (Steven Yeun) to hold the gang together.
Meanwhile, the Governor (David Morrissey) seems chastened by recent events – could he actually be rethinking this whole raging-psycho-rapist-dictator life strategy? Luckily, it all comes together for a truly thunderous, show-stopping finale, reminding us just how good this show can be when the blood gets pumping.
