Walking Dead – Season 5, Episode 1 “No Sanctuary”

The Season 5 Premiere episode of The Walking Dead delivered everything I wanted: intense suspense; fast-paced, gritty action; a seamless continuation from the Season 4 finale; and a strong leap forward in the overall storyline that sets a promising foundation for the rest of the season. But nothing was more satisfying than the emotional fulfillment we were rewarded with the long-awaited reunions of several of the characters. My greatest wish-fulfilled moment was one scene that I must have re-watched over a dozen times in the 24 hours since it aired. When you see it, you’ll know why I’m such a ‘shipper for these two. There! I said it.

The episode ended for me with a feeling of such powerful strength and purpose. I’m not sure if Scott Gimple and Greg Nicotero will allow us too many moments of utter happiness and deep satisfaction as the season rolls out, but THIS premiere episode was definitely one of them. Enjoy the feeling while it lasts! If you’ve got it on DVR or On-Demand rewatch, rewatch, and rewatch again!!! If you don’t, you can always download the premiere from Amazon, iTunes, or Google Play:
