The Walking Dead Haiku Recap: Season 4, Episode 4: Indifference

Rick finally confronts Carol. And what about Bob?

Editor’s Note: Don’t get us wrong, we are as obsessive as any TWD fans. But let others pontificate at length. In our view, the show’s narrative conflict is so essential—living vs. undead, civility vs. anarchy, prey vs. predator—that it demands to be distilled in the purest form possible. What better serves that purpose than haiku?
