The Walking Dead season 5 was set for episode 2 on Sunday night and fans are looking ahead and wondering what will happen in episode 3.
The episode, titled “Four Walls and a Roof,” will air on October 26.
AMC released a short description that gives a little insight into the episode: “Rick and the others find themselves pitted against a group of nasty people.”
Based on the end of episode 2, it seems that the “nasty people” are Gareth and the remnants of Terminus.
Gareth and his crew capture Bob and eat his leg, with Bob soon to die.
The video preview for episode 3, which AMC released just after episode 2, shows that Sasha and the others believe that not only Bob was captured–but Daryl and Carol as well.
However, Daryl and Carol aren’t captured, they just took off to chase a car that looked like the one that took Beth.
So while the group didn’t realize Bob was gone at first, they do realize it soon enough.
A different sneak peek video, aired during Talking Dead, showed Sasha outside in the woods searching for Bob. She has a gun with a night-vision scope, and is frantically searching for Bob. As she looks around, the mark on the tree that was the tree that Bob was leaning on is seen. She looks around in the scope, and as she swings around a walker is right next to her.
A different video preview shown after episode 2 show Rick’s group outside the church, with Maggie proclaiming “someone’s watching us.” The preview shows Glenn, Rick, and others on guard in the darkness, possibly just before a battle with Gareth and his crew.
Scenes in the season 5 Comic-Con trailer showed Rick and Gareth meeting again, and that meeting could very well take place in episode 3.
Gareth and his group are cannibals but also seem to be attracted to the idea of a cure for the zombie disease. The scenes show Gareth has some new leverage over Rick, perhaps telling him that he’ll spare Bob’s life in return for something.
Gareth appears to be talking to Rick. “You don’t have a choice. All of you,” Gareth tells Rick in that scene, as Rick looks at him while holding Judith.
Someone stands beside Gareth with their arms folded, though it’s unclear who it is [starts around :40 mark in the trailer].
“You join us, and you go to Washington and cure this thing,” Gareth says.
In another part of the scene, or another scene, Gareth says: “You don’t trust us anymore.”
Rick appears to tell Gareth at one point: “These people are my family, and if you hurt them in any way, I will kill you.”
However, Rick had a similar quote to Father Gabriel in episode 2.
Another spot seems to show Gareth perched just outside the door of the church that Rick’s group stays in with newcomer Father Gabriel. Gareth has a gun. [1:58].
While the “nasty people” could refer to another group, it’s unlikely. There’s already another group set to be introduced soon–the people holding Beth in some type of compound. Rick’s group could stumble upon the compound, but it seems too early in the season for that to happen. At the same time, Beth is expected to appear in episode 3 or episode 4.
As for the separation of Daryl and Carol, that could last for a number of episodes. Previous filming spoilers indicated that the pair succeed in catching up to the car in a city, seemingly near where Beth is being held.
