SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Episode 511 “The Distance.”
AMC’s The Walking Dead Episode 511 “The Distance” aired last night and the first half of the episode was a snooze, as nothing much happened except Rick being suspicious of new guy Aaron. Finally, when Rick, Michonne, Glenn, and Aaron hit the road, it gets exciting.
The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which is the sequence when part of the group is driving at night in the car with Aaron and they get swarmed by walkers. AMC has also released two behind-the-scenes featurettes — one is a nearly 5-minute “Making of” featurette that centers on the aforementioned Walker swarm when the flare gun goes off, while the other is a 3 1/2-minute “Inside Look” at the episode which introduces us to Aaron, as well as touches upon Rick’s group’s mission to make it to Washington, DC.
You can watch all the videos here below.
The Walking Dead, which stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Michael Cudlitz, and more, is back at AMC on Sunday nights at 9/8c, followed by the post-live show Talking Dead hosted by Chris Hardwick.
The Walking Dead Season 5.2 Synopsis:
After the tragic events of the mid-season finale — as well as losing the possibility of a cure in Washington, DC — Rick Grimes’ band of survivors find themselves on the road, surviving day to day and trying to hold on to their shredded humanity and dwindling hope.
Stripped of security and without a direction for the future, some of the group near their breaking point, some find themselves hardened and cold and some just try to grasp on to what little they have left.
Though they are still breathing, the line between Rick’s group and the dead is starting to blur.
Could there be anything at this point that brings them back to life?
