The Walking Dead: 16 Easter Eggs You Probably Missed In Season 5

15. The Episode Titles

Thanks to the Spoiling Dead Fans on Tumblr, it turns out the titles for episodes 12 to 16 inclusively are drawn from a speech made by Dale as far back as Season 1, referencing a story by William Faulkner:
"I like what the father said to the son when he gave him a watch that had been handed down through generations. He said: €˜I give you a mausoleum of all hope and desire which will fit your individual needs, no better than it did mine and my father before me. I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you may forget it. For a moment, now and then, and not spend all of your breath trying to conquer it.€™€
Time has of course been a major symbol for the show throughout its run, so it's no surprise to see that that speech was supposed to take on greater significance.
