‘The Walking Dead’ Recap: Chaos Ensues Among The Quarantined; The Governor Is Back
The Walking Dead kept close to the makeshift prison community in “Internment,” opening with Hershel (Scott Wilson) hard at work trying to nurse those who’ve come down from the flu back to health.
The number of quarantined peopled in the prison is growing, but Hershel continues to dutifully care to them while trying to brighten up their increasingly dim prospects. Despite his best efforts, however, more and more people are dying as a result of the mystery flu and more look soon to follow. Glenn (Steven Yeun) collapses into a heap upon witnessing Henry become a walker, Sasha is severely dehydrated and Caleb dies. Hearing the madness from outside, Maggie (Lauren Cohen) comes to try and help her dad out to find him pinned against the wall by a walker. One infirmed tries to save Hershel, killing an innocent and getting bitten in the process.
When Maggie left to see to her father, she left Rick (Andrew Lincoln) working on making the fence more sustainable. The attempts to reinforce the increasingly strained fence prove futile and it soon comes down under the weight of the walkers. Rick has no choice but to let his son Carl (Chandler Riggs) help him shoot down the walkers as they approach the prison yard. While the duo takes care of the oncoming walkers, Daryl (Norman Reedus), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Tyreese (Chad L. Coleman) and Bob (Lawrence Gilliard Jr.) arrive back at the prison with the medicine in tow.
Maggie and Hershel, having survived the chaotic events in the quarantine room, learn from Rick that he had decided to exile Carol (Melissa McBride). Since they’re meant to be a counsel, they both seem a little put off by his solo ruling, but neither seems to have a real problem with what he did. When Daryl asks Hershel about Carol’s whereabouts, he’s referred to Rick, foreshadowing an ugly conversation.
Rick, of course, has more to worry about than the repercussions from Daryl for having banished Carol. The Governor (David Morrissey) has returned and in spying on him and Carl as they share some food.
The Walking Dead airs Sundays on AMC at 9/8c.
