This episode beings with Carol and Daryl following the car with the white cross on it. They are hoping that it will lead them to where Beth is. They run out of gas and have to leave the car and find shelter for the night. They find a spot to look out over the area and they end up in an office block. They find walkers in a tent inside and they kill them. They get held up by Noah who has followed them and he takes their weapons. He escapes and Carol is going to kill him, but Daryl stops her.
They find a van from Grady Memorial Hospital with a stretcher inside and they wonder if Beth has been taken there. They go back to the office block where they find Noah and Daryl pushes a bookcase on top of him. He is trapped and there are walkers coming. Daryl is going to leave him tere to die, but Carol asks him not to do that. They rescue Noah and he tells them about Beth and the hospital. They are going to help him, but Carol steps out on the street and gets knocked down by a car from the hospital. Daryl can't help and he has to watch as two people get out of the car and take her away with them. They decide to go back to Rick and the others and get a group together to get Beth and Carol out.
A good episode which sets everything up nicely. There will be a confrontation between the hospital and the survivor group and it should be good!
This episode begins with a guy called Stanley(Denis O'Hare) and a girl called Maggie(Emma Roberts) who are at a morbidity museum and they find out that if they can bring a freak in dead, they will get lots of money. They make a plan to set out for Elsa's freakshow to get themselves a freak. Meanwhile, it is Halloween and the freaks are telling stories about an Englishman called Edward Mordrake. Apparently, he was a freak who had a face on the back of his head. It was evil, trying to corrupt him. He tried to get rid of it, but he couldn't. He joined a freakshow and then killed everyone and himself on Halloween. The freaks don't perform because if they do, he will come for them.
Ethel is at the doctor and he tells her that she is very sick. Her liver is not good and she has not long left to live. Maggie turns up at the freak show and she wants a job. She pretends that she is a fortune teller and manages to fool Elsa into hiring her. She has the name Esmeralda. She calls Stanley to tell him that she is in the show and he is happy as he wants a freak. Ethel tells Dell not to reveal that he is Jimmy's dad and that she hasn't long left to live.Dot and Bette are singing when Elsa decides to take over and she sings her own song. This summons Mordrake(Wes Bentley)and he appears at the freakshow. He talks to Ethel about her sad life and she thinks that he will take her soul, but he doesn't. Meanwhile, Dandy is prancing around dressed as a clown and he threatens the housekeeper, Dora(Patti LaBelle) who thinks that he is an idiot. He heads off to Twisty's hideout and torments the two children he has held captive. Twisty arrives with another boy.
This was a good episode and it introduces some new characters. I don't like Elsa singing modern songs as it doesn't fit with the rest of the show. This is one flaw about the show, but it's only a small thing.
