    Abraham's crew crash after Eugene sabotaged their school bus. He admits this to Tara while Abraham pushes everyone relentlessly forward. When he tries to take them through a large horde of Walkers, Eugene breaks down and admits that he isn't a scientist. In flashback we see how Abraham lost his family and found Eugene.

    Beth wakes up in a hospital in Atlanta. The building is run by cold police officer Dawn while kindly Dr Steven Edwards tends to the wounded brought in. Beth is asked to work to pay off the cost of her rescue and care but is quickly disenchanted with the bleak morale of the staff and the harsh discipline. Things get worse when creepy cop Gorman makes it clear he has intentions with Beth. Fellow sufferer Noah plans to escape and Beth helps him but is caught herself. She realises that even Dr Edwards can't be trusted and prepares to kill him when Carol is wheeled in.

    Bob reveals his bite to the horror of the Termites. They return him to the church and Rick prepares an attack. Gareth has anticipated this and enters the church. However Rick's group quickly return and smash their heads in. Bob is lain to rest as the group splits up. Maggie, Glenn and Tara agreed to go to Washington if Abraham would remain at the church. Darryl then appears out of the bushes but we don't see who he is with.

    The group come across a Priest who identifies himself as Gabriel. They set up camp in his church, find some food and agree to head to Washington. Carol and Darryl come across a car and use it to pursue Beth's kidnappers. Bob wanders off on his own to cry and gets captured by the Terminus survivors.

  • *I may be gone for now but check out these podcasts:* The Angel Rewatch (with Derek and William)[https://theangelrewatch. wordpress. com/] Return to Stars Hollow: A Gilmore Girls Rewatch (with Cordia and Celeste)[http://returntostarshollow. blogspot. co. uk/] Trailerclash: The Movie Trailers Podcast (with Roberto and friends)[http://trailerclash. wordpress. com/] Hi everyone, As you can probably imagine producing podcasts takes a lot of time. An hour to watch the show, sometimes an hour to write, an hour to read and edit feedback, an hour to record, an hour to edit and post and prepare for the next one. Between "The Walking Dead" podcast and the Buffy Rewatch my spare time is well used up.

  • Hey everyone, As I announced on the podcast for The Walking Dead's "After", I recently read Compendium One of the graphic novels. I then recorded a podcast summarising each chapter briefly and commenting on it in my usual style. The podcast is 2 and a half hours long by the end but obviously every second is audio gold :-) I'm asking listeners to donate $5 or more to get their copy of the podcast. Just click on the donate tab and leave me $5 and then email thetvcritic@gmail.

    They should have titled this one simply Abraham. A large piece of what brought him this far is presented well for the most part. ‘Self Help’ could refer to a few things: 1. Onanism. Eugene wat...

  • Ben F. on Self Help
    Great episode, much better than last week's distraction. Since Abraham is a character from the comic, it seems that it made it much easier to produce an episode centered around him. A couple g...

    Good: I liked the way shots were framed and lit in this episode. Bad: agree the explanation of how Beth was found was confusing. Walkers were conveniently spaced and placed throughout. Unknow...

    Pretty much agree with Robin on most points. The whole thing felt like a webisode with a high budget to me. Breaks in the story like this just hurt the show.
