The Walking Dead Recap: Season 5, Episode 6, “Consumed”

“Consumed” spends a good amount of time dutifully filling in some gaps in the story of Carol (Melissa McBride), and the writers take the opportunity to add another thoughtful nuance of persona onto what has become one of The Walking Dead’s most fascinating characters. The episode opens on the moments directly following her exile by Rick (Andrew Lincoln), and its notable that the flashback ends with her discovering the burning guard towers at the prison following the attacks by the Governor. Fire and smoke is a recurring motif throughout, and they come to reveal a wild undercurrent in Carol, who spends most of the episode hunting for Beth (Emily Kinney) and the Grady Memorial Hospital group with Daryl (Norman Reedus).
