The Walking Dead Season 8, Episode 5 Recap: "Things Change, Man"

walking dead season 8

Welcome to Bleeding Cool's weekly recap of AMC's The Walking Dead Season 8, as we get caught up on The Saviors side of "All Out War" (in particular, that whole situation with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) being trapped in that trailer since the first episode) with Episode 5, 'The Big Scary U'.

So my overview/recap of the episode is waiting patiently for your eyeballs below, along with some Spare Parts that I picked up along the way that I thought you might find interesting. You can also check out the transcript of my live-blog of the episode here or by clicking the link after the video.

But one quick thing before we get our recap under way…

Just to be clear, this is not a "formal review" — more of a recap/review/stream of consciousness mash-up "monster" all its own — but I will be covering some themes and takeaways involving major and minor plot points from the episode. Just something to keep in mind before watching or re-watching the episode. Definitely not looking to have angry fellow geeks outside my apartment with pitchforks and torches because I slacked off on the spoiler warnings.

You can take a look back at last Sunday's live blog of 'The Big Scary U' by clicking here.
