TWDTT 005 – Self Help (S5E5)

Talking Through Self Help

As we careen past the quarter mark of the fifth season with the fifth episode, Self Help, directed by Ernest Dickerson, we finally get to see a little of what motivates one of the newest members of our Walking Dead family, Abraham. While not much is revealed, it is still a tantalizing clue to what makes this man tick.

In this episode, we talk about the journey to D.C. and the obstacles our gang face along the way. Why is Abraham so driven to keep going? And why does Rosita side with him up until the end of the episode? For that matter, why did Eugene say that he’s not a scientist at the end of the episode? Did the whole episode really almost get pulled by censors, or just parts of it? These questions and more are discussed, but we don’t have all the answers. We also have more questions about this episode and the future of our gang in The Walking Dead.

Ratings were down…

The ratings are not quite as high as last week’s episode but they still beat football. Self Help got a 7.00 in the 18-49 demographic, with 13.530 million viewers. That’s down from 7.60 and 14.518 million viewers last week. People were probably curious about Beth’s whereabouts.
