Seriously, anytime anyone says the words “The Walking Dead” I can feel all the zombie excitement building inside me and it feels like I’m going to burst! What a crazy amazing show, and I can’t believe this weekend is the season finale. Already!!
But this past Sunday’s episode had more of a happier vibe than usual, which was maybe a nice change after the previous week with the whole Carol/Lizzie incident. Wow. That scene is still stuck in my brain. Anyway, this week I was SOOOO happy that Glen and Maggie finally found each other again. I shot straight up on the couch and had the biggest smile on my face when that happened. I just LOVE them.
Now let’s talk about Daryl. I’m still not sure how I feel about that gang of men he’s with. The whole “claimed” thing makes sense, but the fight over the rabbit ending with a guy dead!? These guys are nuts. Joe, the head guy, seems fair but still nuts. And he did mention the whacko, aka Rick, that escaped from that house they were crashing in a few episodes ago. I think there’s going to be some sort of battle between Joe’s group and Rick in the finale and Daryl will be caught in the middle. Eek!
Eugene the scientist. A scientist with a mullet. Does he REALLY know what caused the outbreak? This whole zombie apocalypse thing has been going on for a while now, like what? Two years? How has he not made it to DC yet? I feel like we still need to learn more about him because something is definitely missing.
I’m very happy that some of the gang made it to Terminus at the end of this episode. I was worried they weren’t going to arrive until the end of the finale and then we’d have to wait until October to see what it’s like there. It looks nice, with all the sunflowers and stuff. Right? And they definitely went way out of their way to post all those signs along the railroad tracks. Maybe TOO out of their way…hmmm…
Most importantly, what is going to happen in Terminus? Are they going to cozy up, become one big happy family and sing “Koombaya”? Probably not. Where’s the excitement in that. Lots of people have been speculating that Terminus is basically a colony full of cannibals. Yikes! So I think I’ll jump on that bandwagon because a) How exciting of an episode would that be? And b) The Walking Dead is just sick and twisted like that. I like it.
Lastly, WHERE THE HECK IS BETH???
Happy zombie dreams!!
