Former sheriff’s deputy Rick Grimes is continuing on his quest of unrelenting personal sacrifice to protect the people he cares about in the newly released deleted scene from the fifth season of AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead.’ The clip, which was originally planned on being included in the season’s third episode, ‘Four Walls and A Roof,’ was unveiled by Anchor Bay Entertainment. The video celebrates the anticipated release of ‘The Walking Dead: The Complete Fifth Season,’ which is set to be distributed by the home entertainment and production company on Blu-ray + Digital HD and DVD on Tuesday.
The deleted scene from ‘Four Walls and A Roof’ follows Father Gabriel Stokes, who’s played by Seth Gilliam, as he enters the church and apprehensively watches the survivors as they prepare their weapons for their upcoming planned attack. The priest then approaches Rick, who’s played by lead actor Andrew Lincoln. Father Gabriel is distrustful of the former deputy and the group heading to the school, and reveals that he regrets divulging what he knew about the survivors there. But Rick reassures him that if he didn’t disclose the information, he would have coerced him into telling him what he wanted to know.
Father Gabriel then asks Rick if he’s ever intentionally hurt people on a large scale, like he did to his parishioners. When the priest also asks what Rick plans on doing to the people outside of the church, the former officer tells Father Gabriel he already knows, and that he killed his parishioners because he didn’t want to die.
