Season 11 of The Walking Dead has been one of the show’s most tense instalments yet as it has seen its character get torn apart while introducing several fearsome new foes.
After episode 4 centred on Daryl’s latest exploits, the next chapter is set to place the focus back on the rest of the group as the danger continues to mount.
But just what can viewers expect in episode 5 of The Walking Dead season 11 and how can fans watch the episode early?
The Walking Dead season 11 episode 4 recap
Released on September 12th in the US, episode 4 of The Walking Dead season 11 is titled Rendition.
Placing the focus on Daryl, the episode sees Norman Reedus’s character get lured into a trap by a Reaper who is revealed to be Leah, Daryl’s former love interest.
She escorts Daryl back to her base where we are finally introduced to Pope, the leader of the Reapers and Daryl is interrogated about his own group but he refuses to divulge anything of importance.
This angers Pope, resulting in him putting Daryl and Leah into a burning building as a test but thankfully, Daryl survives the ordeal and he’s able to save Leah too, impressing Pope in the process.
However, Daryl is left wary of Pope and the Reapers after seeing his and the group’s fiery religious fanaticism first-hand.
