"Remember" adds extra elements of excitement and surprise to the season with new characters, new developments, and a surplus of thrilling change.
LOVING Glenn's backbone tonight.
Clearly, the show has a lot riding on this theme, if it is willing to sacrifice the likability of its protagonists, and a large degree of the audience's sympathy along with it, to advance it this far.
One of the most interesting scenes - and this was a remarkably lean, gripping episode - came when individual members of the group were asked to give a description of their skills.
The chaos has rotted the humanity away from all the people who have had to survive. Now the big question is, will Rick be the messy palm-print on this community, or will he allow his human feelings to regrow?
I was on board with all the brutishness - it's more fun when The Walking Dead complicates its heroes' morality.
That dichotomy is what makes it such a fascinating watch week to week, at its best and worst - and although "Remember" is somewhere in the middle, it still brings an intriguing shift of tone to what appears to be the beginning of a new era for the show.
Transitioning the show from those endless woods to the surreal confines of suburbia is a smart way of refreshing things.
"Remember" did a fantastic job of combining culture shock and trust issues, and then looking at how different characters reacted.
For a show that seemed like they were running in place for a little bit, I'm excited to see that they suddenly have a direction for the next few episodes at least.
"Remember" included enough novel touches -- as well as some lines I never thought I'd hear in a Walking Dead episode -- to make it interesting.
There is a turning point near the end of "Remember" that delivers a dramatic gut punch and serves to make the episode into something more than a mere rehash of any of the other times The Walking Dead allowed its characters to find sanctuary.
Even though some of the walker scenes felt wedged in, "Remember" gave our heroes a true breather in mind, body, and spirit.
