‘This bother you?,’ asked Afghanistan war veteran Pope as Carver ripped a fingernail from bloody Frost’s hand.

‘I’ve done worse,’ Daryl replied as Frost screamed in the background.

‘Why don’t you take a turn then?,’ Pope said.

Carver protested handing over torture duties to Daryl, but relented under Pope’s authority.

‘Well, are we just gonna stand here staring at each other dreamily or are we gonna get to it?,’ Frost asked Daryl.

Daryl responded by swiftly moving behind Frost and placing him in a chokehold.

Carver warned Daryl not to kill Frost and Daryl said he had it under control.

‘Just give ’em a location, where your friends are hiding. You do that, this all goes away,’ Daryl told Frost.

‘That’s a good offer. Or, ..and hear me out. You all could go eat s*** instead,’ Frost said prompting Daryl to punch him in the face.

‘Just a thought,’ Frost added coughing up blood.

Carver suggested they start taking ‘pieces’ and Pope told Leah to give Daryl a knife.

Daryl took off his vest and grabbed the knife as he continued his interrogation of Frost.

‘Shut up! Shut up and listen to me. I know you’re close to her. The leader. Close enough to know where they’re hidin’,’ Daryl said as he urged Frost to cough up the information.

‘Go to hell a**h*…,’ Frost told him causing Daryl to chop off his finger.

‘Location! Or I take another! Location!,’ Daryl shouted.

‘No! No! Please stop!,’ Frost screamed before he gave up the location of a yellow house in town ‘off the 283’ with an antenna landmark.

‘Is that good enough?,’ Daryl asked Pope.

Leah offered to scout it out and Pope ordered her to take a squad as he remained on the hunt for Maggie Greene [Lauren Cohan].

Pope commanded that Daryl go along with them and they approached the house that Frost described.

Daryl was in the rear of the group and was able to signal Maggie who was holed up inside with Negan Smith [Jeffrey Dean Morgan] and Father Gabriel Stokes [Seth Gilliam].

The squad searched the house but didn’t find Maggie and the others who were hiding beneath them in a crawl space under a room.

Daryl and Carver bickered over strategy and Leah told them she didn’t have time for it.

‘You’re either with us or you’re not,’ Leah told Daryl once they were alone.

‘What do you want me to do?,’ Daryl asked.

‘For one thing, …stop pissing off Carver. Usually don’t end well,’ Leah told him.

Daryl later spoke one-on-one with Carver in the house and used subterfuge to relay information to Maggie who was listening below.

‘You hit ’em hard. Even if they got more people, they won’t come back here. It’s a bad move. You got what? Twenty people in your town. You got weapons. You got walls. You’d see them coming from a mile away. Trust me: They ran,’ Daryl said.

‘Is there a point to any of this?,’ Carver wondered.

Carver and Daryl again butted heads and Leah put an end to it.

Daryl then said he was with them only for Leah and admitted that he feared Pope.

Carver then found the hidden door and opened it, but Maggie and her crew already had escaped.

Leah’s squad returned to the Meridian compound where Pope was waiting for them.

Carver informed Pope that they found signs, but their targets slipped away and Pope started laughing.

Pope explained that the night was a success because he continued his ‘discussion’ with Frost after they left and he got everything he needed out of him.

He then smiled and looked over at zombie Frost who was tied to a tree and growling.

The episode also showed Connie [Lauren Ridloff] and Virgil [Kevin Carroll] surviving together after he found her weal and malnourished near Oceanside.

They were chased in the woods into an abandoned mansion populated by crazy people who resorted to feral cannibalism.

Connie and Virgil got separated into the house of horrors and were attacked by the subhumans who crawled on all fours.

They were able to defeat most of the cannibals as Connie let a bunch of zombies into the house to handle them.

A few remaining cannibals attacked Connie and Virgil outside the house but they were rescued by her sister Kelly [Angel Theory], Magna [Nadia Hilker], Carol Peletier [Melissa McBride] and Rosita Espinosa [Christian Serratos].

The sisters were finally reunited after their heartbreaking separation.

The Walking Dead will return next week on AMC.
