So after Beth and a pair of scissors ruined a perfectly good standoff and exchange, let’s see how our walker killing group picks up right after. “What Happened and What’s Going On” is a strong return for the rest of Season Five and, like “The Grove,” shows the price of optimism in a world filled with so much loss and danger. It has the benefit of focusing primarily on one group and, as such, feels like a more cohesive story.
So Season 4 ended with a cliffhanger and there was a lot of buildup going into this premiere. What we got was a very fast paced episode that allowed for a few moments of character growth. “No Sanctuary” is a powerful start and continuation of the series that shows what happens when you screw with Rick Grimes and company.
