The Walking Dead Recap: “Internment” (Season 4, Episode 5)

The prison is in a state of disarray, what with Daryl, Bob, Tyreese, and Michonne missing, the walkers clambering at the weakened fences, and the flu virus raging within the walls. Nonetheless, our band of misfit toys struggles to retain its humanity. Parents try to shelter children, people strive to fortify faith, and above all they’ve all got to protect each other.

All eyes are on Rick as he glances in the rearview, then back down to his bandaged hands. Our fearless leader is a little more on track since last season, but he may have just made a pretty big mistake in banishing Carol – and he’s struggling with the violence in him, as evidenced by the yellowing dressings on his knuckles.live streaming film Zootopia online

Meanwhile at the prison (I think I write that at least twice a recap nowadays), Glenn, Sasha, and Hershel are struggling to keep the dying alive. Glenn and Sasha are quite green and sweaty themselves, but there’s nobody else to help. After a sick man begins to choke on his own blood, they intubate and start breathing artificially for him; it’s only a stopgap measure. Hershel tells Glenn they’re going to keep people alive “as long as it takes. As long as we’re willing to do it.”

Lizzie is freaking me out. Her lack of expression, the likelihood that she’s feeding rats to the walkers and thus breaking down the fences, her matter-of-fact dismissal of adult requests – it all adds up to something very strange and a little frightening in a little kid. Hershel thinks the children should never have to witness the ugliness that is putting someone down, and when he and Glenn try to sneak a flu victim away, Lizzie’s curiosity is a little too avid. When Hershel tells her to read Tom Sawyer, she says, “I won’t finish it. It gets too dark.” The adults here are trying in vain to protect the children from this world – and guys, it’s just not happening. This penchant for hiding the ugly truth is what’s keeping Lizzie curious, what’s keeping her fascinated with – and not understanding – the actuality of the apocalypse, the very real danger of the undead.
