The Walking Dead s05e02 Episode Script

Strangers

Previously on AMC's The Walking Dead We're friends with the chick with the sword and the kid with the hat.
They attacked us.
I don't believe you.
- Who the hell are these people? - They ain't people.
We fight to the fence! You have to go with me.
- We need to go.
- Go where? Somewhere far away from there.
Not so fast.
You didn't want to be there.
That's why I tried to talk to you.
Glenn told me you saved his life.
He saved mine.
That's how it works with us, right? Right.
Hey.
(chuckles) Get something to eat.
We'll start back at sunup.
Talked to Rick.
Some of them know what you did at the prison.
Daryl, Maggie.
They accept it.
You wouldn't be here if they didn't.
Gonna talk to the rest of them.
Tell them to accept it, too.
They don't have to.
No, they do.
They just do.
We don't need to tell them about the girls.
I don't want to.
Why? I just need to forget it.
I got it.
(snarling) Right there is why we're waiting for our moment.
Yeah, fair enough.
I owe you everything.
You owe Tyreese.
He was at the prison.
You got back there.
It was in one of their storerooms.
I saw them kill him.
That kid.
Mm-mmm.
I still don't know about what you did but I know you knew some things I didn't.
I sent you away to this-- You said I could survive.
You were right.
I sent you away to this and now we're joining you.
Will you have us? Thank you.
I don't want to talk about it.
I can't.
I just need to forget it.
All right.
(leaves rustling) (twig snaps) It's nothing.
(theme music playing) We surrender.
No tracks.
No nothing.
So whatever you heard last night It's more what I felt.
If someone was watching us, there would have been something.
(whistles) Keep close.
Ready to get some concrete under your feet? I think it's time.
That is sweet music to my ears, Officer.
Take the next road we come to, try to get back to going north till we find a vehicle.
- Good? - Good.
Tighten it up.
Uh, wet socks.
Cool feet.
Mosquito bites.
Itching reminds you you're alive.
Danger around every corner.
Never a dull moment.
The hot sun beating down on you.
Come on, a glorious tan.
(laughs) I said it and I meant it.
No privacy.
Captive audience.
One more.
One more.
He's a damn expert at that.
- What was it? - A little game.
Good out of the bad.
Man: Help! - Help, anybody! Help! - Dad, come on.
- (man screaming) - Come on! - Come on.
- Anyone, help! Help! - (snarling) - Help! Help! Help! Anybody, help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! (gunshot) Whoa! Whoa! We're clear.
Keep watch.
Rick: Come on down.
You okay? Sorry.
Yes.
Thank you.
I'm Gabriel.
Do you have any weapons on you? (chuckles) Do I look like I would have any weapons? We don't give two short and curlies what it looks like.
I have no weapons of any kind.
The word of God is the only protection I need.
Sure didn't look like it.
I called for help.
Help came.
Do you have-- have any food? Whatever I-- I had left, it just hit the ground.
We've got some pecans.
Thank you.
(Judith cooing) That's a beautiful child.
- Do you have a camp? - No.
Do you? I have a church.
Hold your hands above your head.
How many walkers have you killed? Not any, actually.
Turn around.
How many people have you killed? None.
Why? Because the Lord abhors violence.
What have you done? We've all done something.
I'm a sinner.
I sin almost every day.
But those sins, I confess them to God, not strangers.
You said you had a church? Rick: Hey, earlier, were you watching us? I keep to myself.
Nowadays, people are just as dangerous as the dead, don't you think? No, people are worse.
Gabriel: Well, I wasn't watching you.
I haven't been beyond the stream near my church more than a few times since it all started.
That was the furthest I've gone before today.
Or maybe I'm lying.
Maybe I'm lying about everything and there's no church ahead at all.
Maybe I'm leading you into a trap so I can steal all your squirrels.
Members of my flock had often told me that my sense of humor leaves much to be desired.
Yeah, it does.
Hold up.
Can we take a look around first? We just want to hold on to our squirrels.
(whistles) I spent months here without stepping out the front door.
If you found someone inside, well, it would have been surprising.
Thanks for this.
We found a short bus out back.
It don't run, but I bet we could fix that in less than a day or two.
Father here says he doesn't want it.
Looks like we found ourselves some transport.
You understand what's at stake here, right? Yes, I do.
Now that we can take a breath-- We take a breath, we slow down, shit inevitably goes down.
We need supplies no matter what we do next.
That's right.
Water, food, ammunition.
Short bus ain't going nowhere.
Bring you back some baked beans.
One way or another, we're doing what Rick does.
We're not splitting up again.
What he said.
We want to roll with you, but what she said.
How'd you survive here for so long? Where did your supplies come from? Luck.
Our annual canned food drive.
Things fell apart right after we finished it.
It was just me.
Come here, Judith.
The food lasted a long time.
And then I started scavenging.
I've cleaned out every place nearby.
Except for one.
What kept you from it? It's overrun.
How many? A dozen or so.
Maybe more.
Rick: We can handle a dozen.
Bob and I will go with you.
Tyreese should stay here, help keep Judith safe.
Rick: That'll be okay? Sure.
You ever need me to watch her, need anything for her, I'm right here.
I'm grateful for it.
And everything else.
- I'll draw you a map.
- You don't need to.
You're coming with us.
I'm not gonna be of any help.
You saw me.
I'm no good around those things.
You're coming with us.
Listen, I don't trust this guy.
Why? Why do you trust him? Everybody can't be bad.
(chuckles) Well I don't trust this guy.
And that's why I'm bringing him with me.
But he could have friends.
So I need you to stay alert and help Tyreese protect Judith, okay? Now I need you to hear what I'm about to say.
Okay.
You are not safe.
No matter how many people are around or how clear the area looks, no matter what anyone says, no matter what you think, you are not safe.
It only takes one second.
One second and it's over.
Never let your guard down, ever.
I want you to promise me.
- I promise.
- Okay.
Dad.
You're right.
I am strong.
We both are.
But we're strong enough that we can still help people.
And we can handle ourselves if things go wrong.
And we're strong enough that we don't have to be afraid and we don't have to hide.
Well, he's hiding something.
I'll stay safe, Dad.
Yeah.
Hey.
When you said they don't get to live, you weren't wrong.
We push ourselves and let things go.
Then we let some more go and some more.
And pretty soon, there's things we can't get back.
Things we couldn't hold on to even if we tried.
Washington's gonna happen, Rick.
I haven't decided if we're going.
Yeah, I know, and that's cool.
But you've seen Abraham in action.
He's gonna get there and Eugene's gonna cure all this and you're gonna find yourself in a place where it's like how it used to be.
And if you've let too much go along the way, that's not gonna work.
'Cause you gonna be back in the real world.
This is the real world, Bob.
Naw.
This is a nightmare, and nightmares end.
I'm sorry.
I'm calling it.
Washington's gonna happen.
You're gonna say yes.
Already too much momentum.
You can't fight city hall.
Maybe that's just one of those parts of not letting go.
Hey, I get it.
You don't want to talk about it.
You okay? Gotta be.
We get to start over.
All of us with each other.
You saved us all by yourself.
We got lucky.
We all should be dead.
I'll check it.
All right.
Hey.
We ain't dead.
And whatever happened, happened.
Let's start over.
- I want to.
- Well, you can.
(humming) We should leave this here for backup in case things go south at the church.
Want me to carry one of those? No.
You know, I didn't want to mention anything when we looked this place up in the phone book, but I just can't imagine a gun store having leftovers nowadays.
Don't look good, does it? (clattering) Was it a walker? Uh, yeah.
It was a walker.
Really? It was a stack of boxes and a mop and I tripped.
- (laughs) - Still got what we came for.
You actually found something? Three silencers stashed in a mini-fridge.
Rule number one of scavenging-- there's nothing left in this world that isn't hidden.
We're here.
This was the food bank.
It served the whole county.
All the cans at my church were gonna end up here.
(splashing) (walkers snarling) (snarling continues) If a sewer could puke, this is what it'd smell like.
The water's been coming down that hole for a while.
Slimed this place up good.
Sasha: We can use the shelves to block them.
Yeah, that's it, Sasha.
There's our way.
Down those shelves.
Hey.
I said you're coming with us.
(snarling) Rick: Go! Go! Here they come.
You take right.
Rick: I see three here.
You got it? We have to get Gabriel.
- What happened? - I don't know.
All right, we'll push down the shelves on the ones in front of us.
We'll fight through and I'll grab him.
Go! (snarling) (whimpering) Yeah.
I know which way it's gonna break.
Bob! (snarling) (grunts) (panting) You okay? Bob, you okay? I'm fine now.
I'm sorry.
I-- I panicked.
- I told you I-- - You knew her when she was alive? Yeah, I get it.
You only tell your sins to God.
Do you miss the sword? Wasn't really mine in the first place.
Found it in the very beginning.
How'd you get so good? It was just me and them out here all day, every day a good long time.
I don't know what that was, but it wasn't a life.
Not like today.
Stumbling around in three feet of slime for some peas and carrots, that's living.
I miss Andrea.
I miss Hershel.
- Yeah.
- I don't miss what was before.
I don't miss that sword.
Hey.
Tyreese said you were out back.
Come on in.
We found food.
- A lot of it.
- Good.
What is it? Those scratches.
They're deep.
Like knives or something.
Someone was trying to get in.
I found something else.
I don't know what happened, but whatever it is, we can handle it.
Doesn't mean Gabriel is a bad guy for sure, but it means something.
(laughing, chatting) Ooh, give me-- ah.
I'd like to propose a toast.
(chatter stops) I look around this room and I see survivors.
Each and every one of you has earned that title.
- To the survivors.
- Survivors! Cheers! (overlapping voices) Cheers.
Carol: Survivors.
Is that all you want to be? Wake up in the morning, fight the undead pricks, forage for food, go to sleep at night with two eyes open, rinse and repeat? 'Cause you can do that.
I mean, you got the strength.
You got the skill.
Thing is, for you people, for what you can do, that's just surrender.
Now, we get Eugene to Washington and he will make the dead die and the living will have this world again.
And that is not a bad takeaway for a little road trip.
(coos) Shh.
Eugene, what's in DC? Infrastructure constructed to withstand pandemics even of this fubar magnitude.
That means food, fuel, refuge.
Restart.
However this plays out, however long it takes for the reset button to kick in, you can be safe there.
Safer than you've been since this whole thing started.
Come with us.
Save the world for that little one.
Save it for yourselves.
Save it for the people out there who don't got nothing left to do except survive.
(chuckles) - (coos) - What was that? - (laughter) - I think she knows what I'm about to say.
She's in.
If she's in, I'm in.
- We're in.
- (all laughing) - (clapping) - Tyreese: Yeah.
- Let's do it.
- (cheering) Okay.
I'm not letting my brother be the only one that gets to hold that baby.
(laughs) Wait.
One more.
- You okay? - Yeah, yeah.
I was at the prison.
With the Governor.
I didn't know who he was or what he could do.
And I didn't know who all of you were.
I-- I just didn't want it to be hidden.
That I was there.
You're here with us now.
(footsteps approaching) Thanks for the hospitality.
I'm surprised you let us drink your communion wine.
There isn't anyone left to take communion.
The wine's just wine until it's blessed.
You're hiding something.
And it's pretty obvious it's something you can't hide from.
That's your business.
But these people, these people are my family.
And if what you're hiding somehow hurts them in any way, I'll kill you.
(engine idling) (walker snarling) (rustling) What are you doing? I don't know.
Come on.
(car approaching) Whoa, whoa! What are you doing? What are you doing? They got Beth.
Come on.
Come on, get in.
(tires squealing) (distant chatter) (sobbing) (grunts) You waking up? Ah, you're back with us, huh? Good news is you're not dead yet.
That's a relief, right? But try not to read too much into the word yet there.
It'll just drive you crazy, Bob.
I want to explain myself a little.
You see, we didn't want to hurt you before.
We didn't want to pull you away from your group or scare you.
These aren't things that we want to do.
They're things we got to do.
You and your people took away our home.
That's fair play.
Now we're out here like everybody else trying to survive.
And in order to do that, we have to hunt.
Didn't start that way, eating people.
It evolved into that.
We evolved.
We had to.
And now we've devolved into hunters.
I told you.
I said it.
Can't go back, Bob.
I just hope you understand that nothing happening to you now is personal.
Yeah, you put us in this situation and it is almost kind of a cosmic justice for it to be you, but we would have done this to anybody.
We will.
But at the end of the day, no matter how much we hate all this ugly business a man's got to eat.
(breathing rapidly) If it makes you feel any better you taste much better than we thought you would.
