Season five of The Walking Dead started in evil Terminus, and ended in the comparatively idyllic Alexandria. Along the way, our heroes encountered death, despair and all the emotional ups and downs than can be expected from survivors of a zombie apocalypse.
We had a lot of surprises, too, many of them involving character deaths. But the most important moments didn't come from death, but from the choices our heroes -- and the villains -- made before, during and after. How Rick and the Ricksters reacted to the horrors they met is why we keep watching week after bloody week. Here are some of the best, most horrific and most compelling moments of season five.
Let us know what you think in the comments, and chime in with what you're going to do to get your fill of zombie gore until season six.
