The Walking Dead continues its ill-fated tour around its ever-expanding world that we’re traveling this season. Over the course of five episodes, we’ve managed to check in with all our characters except for the last two — Heath and Tara.
You may have forgotten about them because they’re not very important, but the show decided to invest an entire 70-minute episode into their supply-run adventures anyway.
The episode is told slightly out of order, skipping between Heath and Tara on their two week mission and the aftermath of a zombie attack that separates them.
The pair left shortly after the attack on the Savior outpost last season. Heath is dealing with the moral ramifications of having murdered a bunch of people proactively, while Tara exudes her usual pragmatic and likable charm. After two weeks of searching, they haven’t found much and don’t want to return empty-handed.
