The Walking Dead: Season 5, Episode 10: Them‘s plot synopsis (spoilers): “On their journey to Washington, the group’s van breaks down, forcing them to travel on foot. The group is exhausted and on the verge of dehydration due to dwindling supplies, and they begin to question their chances of survival. They continue to be disheartened from the untimely deaths of Beth and Tyreese. After travelling for miles with a herd of walkers dangerously close behind, Rick orchestrates a plan to eliminate them by luring them off the end of a bridge, but Sasha dispatches them with her knife, forcing the group to abandon the plan and take on the walkers head-on; Michonne continues to chastise Sasha for her recklessness, and warns her that she might end up like her brother. Maggie is disturbed when she discovers in the trunk of a car a bound and gagged walker, which is killed by Glenn afterwards. While the group is resting, a pack of feral dogs arrive, which are swiftly eliminated by Sasha and eaten by the group. Despite comfort from Carol, a grieving and emotionally numb Daryl begins to self-inflict pain. Daryl rejoins the survivors, who are suspicious of several water bottles in the middle of the road, with a note indicating that they came from “a friend.” Rain begins to pour, and the group rejoices by catching the water with their mouths before realizing that the rainfall has aggravated into a thunderstorm. They retrieve the water bottles before hiding in a barn Daryl found. While the survivors are huddled in a fire formed in the barn, Rick tells the group that they have to live with reality, to “do what [they] have to do”, and to tell themselves that they “are the walking dead.” Daryl looks outside the entrance to see that a herd of walkers have converged; the group works together to fend them off. The next morning, the storm has decimated the walkers, and Maggie and Sasha decide to travel outside and watch the sunrise. The two are approached by a man named Aaron, who identifies himself as the “friend” and wishes to talk to Rick.”
