This episode had the craziest scene in The Walking Dead series, in my opinion. Losing your mind is dangerous. Losing your mind in an Apocalypse is just so much worse. The journey led Daryl and the others to a town called Augers, with the intention of meeting up with a contact who has a working radio to try to figure out which way to go next so Daryl can try to reach out to his family back home. The lone survivor at this location has lost his mind to an extreme level, he has butchered the radio for “amplification.” He has been busy in that he has set up a bunch of walkers like a band, impaling them with trumpets and attaching things to the head to act like drumsticks. I can’t explain it in a way that does it justice, but it was just next-level bizarre, and the man was so excited trying to say that music and culture lives!
Daryl had enough funny business and says they are going straight to Paris now. Fast forward directly to Paris in the next scene, the group meets with the people who live there. The hideout has 64 members, but no radio for Daryl as it turns out their communications are with pigeons. This doesn’t work for Daryl, the locals do know that they have a place where people can get information but they would need some currency for the information. Isabelle takes Daryl to her apartment to get some “currency”, that she used to steal from back into the day.
At the nightclub, Isabelle and Daryl find a group to talk to that has information, it doesn’t go smoothly at first as Daryl punches one of them in the face. The manager of the night club puts a stop to it and it turns out it is Quinn, the one who tried to take Isabelle to safety when things started. Guy is a dirt bag now, and says he is Laurent’s father, and in exchange for helping Daryl he wants Laurent to know that he is his father. Daryl tells Isabelle that a boat is not that important.
