One point that resonated loud and clear for me as a viewer of tonight's episode was that the age-old cliché about actions having consequences is definitely true. Last week was all about these characters having the strength (or having sufficiently lost hold of their humanity, depending on your point of view) to act in a way they never would have considered in the old world before the societal collapse in order to ensure their survival in the reality of the new and more brutal world they are living in.
The fact is, though, those kinds of actions can have shockingly unintended consequences, and this week's episode makes that point very clearly. Sometimes particularly unpleasant chickens can come home to roost, and it feels – more and more each week – like the show is building toward something big. And, with this show, that usually means nothing good.
