On last week's episode of The Walking Dead, Rick Grimes was convinced by his fellow survivors to not breach Grady Memorial Hospital with a sneak attack that could put more lives in danger. But as viewers learned on Sunday's midseason finale, the more peaceful approach didn't exactly work out much better.
Why the Walking Dead midseason finale made Norman Reedus cry for an hour

As The Walking Dead lurched toward its Season 5 midpoint, multiple characters were forced to consider how much they could trust those in their company.
And, as is almost always the case, the answer was...not very much.
The Walking Dead recap: Is another war coming?
Sunday's episode featured Rick (Andrew Lincoln) & Co. planning another trip into Atlanta to rescue Beth (Emily Kinney) and Carol (Melissa McBride) from the gang at Grady Memorial — and leaving Carl (Chandler Riggs), Judith and Michonne (Danai Gurira) behind at the church with Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam). Meanwhile, Beth did her best to keep Carol alive at the hospital and Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) and his group tried to pull things back together in the wake of Eugene's admission about D.C.
So, who proved trustworthy? Let's break it all down...

The Walking Dead's Rick Grimes is a man of his word.
On Sunday's episode, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the rest of the group learned that Gareth (Andrew J. West) and the remaining survivors of Terminus were still nearby when the Terminans returned Bob (Lawrence Gilliard Jr.) — minus most of his left leg — to Father Gabriel's church. Rick quickly assembled a search party to hunt for The Hunters, but as soon as they left the church, Gareth & Co. came calling.

The Wire Reunion, PaleyFest
In an age where television is dominated by reboots, re-imaginings and "event series" sequels, there is at least one acclaimed show you shouldn't expect to see back on your TV screen: HBO's The Wire.
Despite being considered by critics and legions of adoring fans (many of whom never watched the show during its actual low-rated run) to be the greatest TV drama of all time, co-creator and executive producer David Simon made it abundantly during a reunion panel at New York PaleyFest Thursday night that he has no interest in...

To any outsider setting foot on the Griffin, Georgia, set of The Walking Dead, the sense of heightened security and secrecy is immediately apparent. Production assistants string giant tarps across the entrance to a small alley, shielding any on-camera action from the eyes of dozens of gawkers who have parked themselves across the street in the 90-degree heat holding homemade signs professing their love for AMC's hit zombie drama. ("I <3 Daryl Dixon" is one popular sentiment.) Brief glimpses of the show's stars elicit the kind of eardrum-tearing screams usually reserved for the latest boy band.

However, the new trailer for Season 5 seemed to hint towards them being cannibals, with our group of heroes being lined up for the slaughter before Bob (Lawrence Gilliard Jr.) convinces Gareth (Andrew J. West) that they need to go to Washington, D.C. so Eugene (Josh McDermitt) can provide the right people with the cure. On the plus side, Beth (Emily Kinney) was not on that BBQ! Sadly, she seems to be in a juvenile correction center with a very violent corrections officer.
