The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary / Season: 5 / Episode: 1 (00050001) (2014)
Production Code: 00050001
October 12, 2014
In flashbacks, the Terminus inhabitants are assaulted and captured by marauders before their leader Gareth declares their need to become "the butcher". In the present, Carol and Tyreese learn from a Terminus ally, Martin, that the rest of the group is being held captive in Terminus. Carol heads off to rescue Rick's group while Tyreese stays behind with Martin and Judith. Carol causes an explosion that sets fire to parts of Terminus, attracts a nearby herd of walkers, and averts the executions of Rick, Daryl, Glenn and Bob, who use the opportunity to escape after discovering that the inhabitants of Terminus are cannibals. The four fight their way through the herd of walkers and the Terminus inhabitants and rescue the rest of their group, while Gareth leads some of his surviving men out of Terminus. After Rick's proposal to pursue Gareth's men is rejected, the group reunites with Carol, Judith and Tyreese, who claims to have killed Martin after the latter threatened Judith's life. The group proceeds to places unknown, with Abraham intending to deliver Eugene to Washington to cure the walker virus. Rick covers up a Terminus sign and labels it "No Sanctuary"; the sign is then discovered by Morgan Jones.
