Every Tribe member has a purpose, and each one of them, new and veteran, have worked hard to prove their worth. For those who have spent time out in the wilds of the post-apocalyptic world, life outside the walls is never simple, often terrifying and always complex. For those who have not been able to survive on their own, this is a time to prove oneself and to use the skills that they have for the good of the Tribe. For the vets, it’s a time to reap the consequences of their actions and answer for the deeds they have done.

Life in the zombie apocalypse isn’t easy, no one ever said it would be. Tough choices must be made, friends left behind, innocent lives lost, and ruthlessness always begats ruthlessness. While the Tribe has mostly come to terms with these truths, it is still shocking and painful to witness the degeneration of self that our beloved Tribe members are experiencing and begs the question, When is enough, enough?

In one of the most disturing and universe shifting episodes to date, the Tribe reveals the lengths they are willing to go to for food, shelter and the life they have created together at Alexandria. In post-apocalyptic life, decisions must be made in order to survive and those decisions must be ones that the Tribe can live with in the days to come.

Post-apocalyptic life is a constant struggle between good and evil, the living and the dead and while the Tribe has been working toward finding a balance, circumstances do not always allow for a simple solution to such complex questions. For the Tribe, survival is paramount, but just as essential is a sense of normalcy that they can build a community on as they attempt to navigate the brave, new world.

Season 6 of The Walking Dead returned with a not-so-sweet Valentine’s day episode that reminded Tribe members what they are truly capable of, if only pushed to the extreme. While the Alexandrians have notoriously remained horrible at surviving without their precious wall intact, the Tribe continues to work toward some sort of balance within that group, as they struggle to keep themselves safe a secure from the living and the dead.

The Tribe is still separated, Alexandria remains vulnerable and survivors continue to evolve and change who they are in order to make it through another day. The story is moving slowly toward the inevitable; fear the walkers, fear the living and don’t ever get too comfortable.  For those inside the walls, safety is as precarious as it is for those outside, and there are no guarantees on who will make it out alive. This week, I’m recapping two episodes in one post, people, so keep up.

Times, they are a-changing in Alexandria, and we finally get to see what the citizens of this tribe are capable of. There are walkers all around the city walls but Rick back, and he is ready to lead the town to victory–which only means they live, not that they necessarily get to keep the town. To do that, he needs the help of his Tribe, Deanna and the rest of Alexandria. This week, I’m recapping two episodes in one post, people, so keep up.
