Al and Dwight go rogue on a recon mission to follow a lead thought lost, but Al must choose between what she has now and what she's chasing.

I don't think this episode was all that shocking.  The swerve was far too obvious.  Al doesn't meet up with the lady on the helicopter, waving her off.   Then Dwight talks about his wife during the episode, not really sure if his wife was alive or not, meets up with her at the end of the episode.  And of course the much needed drug to fight the plague was on the roof.

This episode is proving more and more that walkers aren't much of a threat to anyone who is paying attention and has a weapon, unless they are severely outnumbered.

Part of the problem with this episode was that if you didn't see the single episode about Al and the helicopter woman or didn't care about it, it came off pretty desperate and pretty close to the stereotype of lesbians building entire relationships out of one interaction. I get that it's the ZA and people will make what they will out of meetups, but really. Dwight at least has a history across two shows of looking for his wife, even if the ending did feel a little slapped on because the showrunners realized they needed some kind of positive resolution to one of these stories.

Hopefully it will be at least mildly entertaining when Dwight has to explain to Sherry that he's walked halfway across the country to get mixed up in yet another group of baddies, even if no one seems to be able to really define what exactly makes them baddies beyond a penchant for cowboy western cosplay and having an annoying leader who will. Not. Stop. Talking. Bonus that Virginia doesn't seem to have a rape harem. 

The bubonic plague had the potential to shake things up like last season's radioactive walkers until it became the fastest moving plague ever and hey, there's a whole crate of antibiotics just sitting here. Never mind.

This ep was so boring, I was dozing off until the very end when Dwight and Sherry found each other.  I hope they survive this mess.

I think Al is useless and I'm tired of seeing her.

I would like to know just how they keep their walkie talkies charged, have batteries for the flashlights, have all that fuel (including diesel for the swat machine). They are out there wandering around yet seem to have all they need to navigate.

It will be interesting to see if his wife has joined the dark side.   TPTB seem to be setting up another big bad with the story built around the woman that appeared to be embalmed while alive as well as the plaque being an intentional act and not a random occurrence.   They did only find fifteen of the sixteen bodies at the embalming/funeral home.

Lol ! Isn't it amazing,  that swat vehicle might_ be getting 8 to 10  miles per gallon of diesel, no telling how they are finding old diesel still clean enough to run.

I mostly liked this one more than the previous episodes.  I was moved by the office lady's tears over the fate of her friends.  But yeah, nice coincidence to find the crate of antibiotics to immediately cure all the plague victims.  It's a miracle!  I'm happy Sherry finally showed up.  How is it I can like Dwight now after all the horrible things he did on the other show?

Unfortunately, since the rooftop set was worse than what a prop department at your local high school could manage, I kinda realized no helicopter  was going to land the moment she went “outside”...though I must say, I appreciated the Ed Wood jump cut to some stock footage of a helicopter.....

What a snoozefest this was. This season seems to be terribly disjointed, and it's hard to muster much give-a-damn about any of it.

And I still really have no idea what Ginny's operation or plan are all about.

I can’t imagine staying in my office building for years? in the same work clothes, especially a dress...
