The “Internment” episode of The Walking Dead was one of the most intense and exciting episode of the season to date. Hershel really stepped up big time and played a major role in the episode.
With many of the group sick and dying from a mysterious flu-like illness, Hershel took it upon himself to go inside the sick area and tend to the ill. Unfortunately, when the ill started dying, they turned to walkers and became a threat. After a bloody battle, Hershel finally had a moment to rest and visit the body of Dr. S, who Hershel had to kill after he died from the illness and came back as a walker.
When Hershel looked down at Dr. S’s body, he read scripture from his bible, before breaking down into sobs. As Hershel cried, a melancholy song played in the background. The lyrics were, “Go your way, I’ll take the long way ’round, I’ll find my own way down, As I should. And hold your gaze, There’s coke in the Midas touch, A joke in the way that we rust, And breathe again. And you’ll find loss, And you’ll fear what you found, When weather comes, Tearing down.”
For those that were wondering, the song that is playing is Oats In The Water By Ben Howard. We’ve embedded a YouTube version of the song below.
