TV Review: The Walking Dead S5E4 Slabtown

walking-dead-5 photoBeth finds herself in a hospital in the middle of Atlanta after being kidnapped by a car with a white cross.

What happened to Beth? Fans of The Walking Dead have been wondering for quite some time now what exactly happened to Beth and who was driving the mysterious car that kidnapped her?

This is the episode where we start to piece the puzzle together, brilliantly in a way. We only know as much as Beth, maybe just a little more since we saw the kidnapping take place. But, as she learns more and more about the world she’s a prisoner in, so do we.

That’s the amazing thing to me about this episode. I felt myself on the edge of my seat the entire time either muttering “oh my god,” or screaming at the television. This was an episode that was beyond tense and brilliantly had an homage to the beginning. The episode took us back to the beginning in many ways. We have a similar amount of information as we did in that first episode, five seasons in and it feels like the beginning. Just amazing.

Now, we also see Atlanta too! In a way the episode returns back to earlier in the show, and shows us what’s up with Atlanta now as well. So much time has passed, and we have an idea what else might be out there.

And that was one hell of an ending. What happened!? What’s going on!? We want to know!
