In the finale, Daryl finds himself in trouble while out on the run. Meanwhile, in Alexandria, Rick and his group continue to feel like outsiders as danger lurks near the gates. The second half of season five has already been better than the season’s first half. There seems to be a lot more action and a lot more questions raised. Catch The Walking Dead Sunday nights on AMC.
