The Walking Dead, Season 6
Episode 6, Always Accountable
Always Accountable kicks off showing us what happened to Daryl, Sasha and Abraham as they are leading the second major horde away.
As they turn to cut through a small town they are ambushed by a well armed group of men with military rifles. Daryl drops his bike but makes it back up just in time to flee. Sasha and Abraham fare slightly better. They get out of the immediate shootout and come back to light up their chase car – and the people inside it.
Daryl doesn’t fare quite so well. He makes it out of the shootout only to find himself with a wounded left arm and his bike doesn’t appear to be running. He hides his bike under some brush and starts to stalk whatever is in the woods with him.
He finds two girls before getting clocked and knocked out. It’s not clear who’s got him, they seem to think he’s a wolf – but they are kind of being nice to him. They apparently came to town to find Patty – but when they get to their fuel depot they find walkers inside the fence. Whoever they came for appears to be lost.
As the small group mourns the loss of their friend Daryl uses their moment of distraction to grab their bag and run – only to find out he stole the younger girls Insulin.
Daryl of course goes back – and as soon as he does the small party is ambushed by whomever was chasing the three who found Daryl from the beginning. The woods seem to be filled with rednecks. Thankfully Daryl is the most bad ass redneck of them all. He tricks one of their stalkers into getting bit – which leads to a forest amputation. But it does pull the others off as they tend to their wounded, which lets Daryl and his new group of friends flee a little further. The little group he’s with has roots in the area – and things go south when they find a little cabin that they used to stay in when they were younger. There are two walkers melted to the ground under the greenhouse glass – which then breaks when the young girl goes to put flowers on her dead family – and gets bitten. The party of four is now three. Just when you think Daryl’s made friends they turn on him – they are going to go back to the marauder group they were trying to escape. They take his bike but leave him be – just in time for him to find a tanker truck of gas in the woods.
Abraham and Sasha find some signs of Daryl and decide to hold tight – to wait to let him find them. They hide in an office building with a great view of a walker while they wait to find Daryl. Sasha sleeps with the radio next to her – but so far all she’s hearing is static. They decide to wait out the night – and the next day while scouting Abraham finds a case with what appears to be an RPG-11 – in a U.S. Hummer.
Daryl, Abraham, and Sasha meet back up in the town when Daryl drives his fuel truck in
Things I loved about this episode…
- The opening firefight. Who doesn’t love a good shootout.
- The fact that as soon as Daryl sees the Insulin you know he has to go back. Because he’s Daryl.
- The rotten zombie tearing through the fence post and leaving behind his launcher.
- Abraham’s come on speech to Sasha. He’s so smooth.
Things that I didn’t like about this episode…
- Daryl letting himself get clocked. You can’t sneak up on a Redneck Jedi.
- Sasha & Abraham leaving the biter behind the glass. Just kill it and reduce the risk that it breaks free while your not paying attention.
- Why the hell is Abraham wrestling with the zombie with the rocket launcher? Just kill it and take the rocket damn it.
- The first time we see Daryl drop a bike?
