'The Walking Dead' recap ('New Best Friends'); season 7, episode 10

Yet another British actor joins the "Walking Dead" world. This time, it's Pollyana McIntosh, who plays Jadis, the leader of yet another group of survivors, the landfill crew dubbed the Scavengers.

The Brits are now all over the place in disguise on the show: we already have Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), Lennie James (Morgan), Lauren Cohan (Maggie) and Tom Payne (Jesus). And of course, David Morrissey (the Governor) is long gone.

Rick is seeking allies to help in the pending war against the Saviors. Father Gabriel  - of all people - helps lead him to the new crew.

While last week was flecked with unusual amounts of humor, this episode was tonally all over the place. I found the efforts at humor this episode flat. And even the reunion between Carol and Daryl lacked punch. But the junkyard scene had visual punch. Let's review:
