Morality: how we retain it, and what we are willing to give up. This week of The Walking Dead highlighted what people are willing to do for themselves in a zombie-ridden world. This episode was necessary in order for the plot to move forward and, as a result, we were subjected to a lot more dialogue than zombie-killing (sigh, again). The tension in the hour didn’t come at all from the undead but from the subtext in each conversation between the living.
