Plot elements[edit | edit source]

In this season, the Governor escapes the fall of Woodbury and strikes out on his own. He is taken in by the Chambler family and begins to recapture the sense of family that he once yearned for. However, when he subsequently reunites with members of his old group, old feelings of anger stir. Taking control of the remaining survivors, he embarks upon an all or nothing gambit to take the prison, which yield traumatic consequences for Rick and the group.

After the destruction of the prison, the surviving members of Rick's group flee, many of which getting separated from each other. Rick is injured and still reeling from the psychological effects of recent losses. Michonne and Carl keep a close vigil on him. Carol and Tyreese take baby Judith as well as the children Lizzie and Mika Samuels away. Daryl and Beth are on their own and form a close bond. Maggie and Glenn remain with Abraham, Eugene and Rosita. As each group forges ahead, they begin seeing signs leading to what they hope will be their ultimate salvation. But will it actually be their ultimate downfall?
