What we're about to say, we say with no bias or agenda whatsoever: The next episode of The Walking Dead just might be one of the best of the season. And by "best," we mean deftly written, subtly played and, in the end, emotionally complex. You know, best.

Just what can you expect? Here's a taste.

Michonne Talks! We speak, of course, of that Greta Garbo of Zombieland, she who, until recently, just wanted to be alone. Well, our favorite katana-wielder just might make a real live friend--or two--this episode. It's been a long time coming. (Hint: This particular friend isn't sleeping with the Governor.)

Keep the Tissues Handy: No, we're not talking about yet another death of a beloved character. We're talking about the return of a very old friend. But this reunion is bittersweet and, in the end, a total heartbreak.

Carl Is Itching for an Independent Moment: But will he get it?

Ouch! In a couple of shots that include not a single line of dialogue, we see just how hard Rick & Co. have gotten this season. Actually, the term "war-weary" may be closer to the truth. Is their decision forgivable? Inevitable? Decide for yourself Sunday night.
