This episode before the season finale (waahhh) was super good! Let's get into it!
Rick, Michonne, and Carl are getting along really well as they walk along the train tracks. I think I missed (or temporarily forgot) when they decided to go to Terminus, but that's evidently where they are headed. Is it just me or did Rick look like a dad proud to see his two kids getting along when Carl decided to share his candy bar prize with Michonne? I was thinking, dag Rick, you look like an old fogey compared to those two.
Glenn, Tara and Dr. Mullet's crew are also headed to Terminus. Glenn suspects that that's where Maggie would go, and he is right. When he spots Maggie's walker blood messages, he darts off like a madman, determined to catch up with her. Did anyone see how ridiculous Abraham was trying to protect Dr. Mullet? Why did he make a huge scene trying to cover Mullet from the walker who fell out of the tower, knocking Tara across the floor in the process. That was sooooo unnecessary, wtf?! He didn't even apologize! He didn't even help her up! What was the point of that? He ran over arms spread to guard mullet as if he was being attacked, meanwhile the zombie took a whole extra 30 seconds to actually appear. Could he not have just said, "Hey Mullet, heads up!" Or if he wanted to do more, he could have walked (at a normal pace) took Dr. Mullet's hand, and lead him out of the way. The bum-rushing was completely and utterly uncalled for! Can we say overreaction. What a freaking drama queen!
Anyways, Dr. Mullet is in love with Tara (despite Tara's preference for women) so he seems to want to go wherever she's going, which is wherever Glenn is going. But the two groups have to part ways when they come to a tunnel of the unknown. Glenn feels a crazy need to go through the tunnel since he can tell by Maggie's message that that is the way that she went. Abraham says that it's too dangerous being that there is no visible end to the dark tunnel, but there is the obvious moans of zombies inside. Let me restate for the record my deeply devoted love for Glenn. Not only is he smart, but he is so crazy brave (emphasis on the crazy, but that's ok) he is willingly going into a cave that we know is filled with walkers (by the sound of the moaning) just because he needs to find his girlfriend/wife/baby momma. I LOVE GLENN!
Too bad they went in and just about everything went wrong! Tara's already messed up leg (thanks to drama queen Abe) get's caught under a rock, and all of the zombies that they heard from outside of the tunnel, are coming for her. Glenn, being the awesome person that he is, refuses to leave her and tries to fight off the zombies using what little bullets he has left. Just as they're about to be screwed, overcome by too many walkers, someone on the other side yells "Get down!" and shoots all the zombies dead. After all the shooting is done, we see that it is Maggie and them with Abraham and them. Yay! Glenn and Maggie finally found each other!!! Reunited at last. I am too happy because I was getting tired of them frantically searching for one another, now they can calm down a bit.
In this episode of the Walking Dead, we finally see that there is no reason to doubt Eugene's smarts simply because he has a mullet. The way he tricked Rosita into waiting at the spot that he came up with by doing some Physics math problem (if Tara walks along the train tracks at this speed and velocity while we drive around the tunnel at this speed going northwest, how long until we meet again on the train tracks...wtf?) in his head, was pure genius! And somewhere within that math problem was a point in time where he would run into Maggie and crew, and then they managed to drive into the tunnel just in time to save Tara and Glenn from getting eaten! Genius!
Meanwhile, I think I was trying to ignore this possibility, but Darryl is hanging out with those wild men who barged in the house during Rick's nap! I was hoping they weren't evil, but they certainly can't be good if their current mission is to hunt down Rick and they kill people for telling a lie. Oh no! I hope Darryl will be able to stop them from hurting Rick, although Darryl is clearly no longer in his right mind. What is with him just going along with these guys without asking many questions? And what the heck! Did he just say f Beth? Because he's definitely no longer worried about finding her.
Maggie, Glenn, Tara, Abraham, Eugene, Bob, Sasha, and Rosita made it to Terminus. Maybe it's just me, but it looks awfully suspicious if a lady cooking at a sanctuary in an apocolyptic world doesn't even flinch when new survivors show up. Cookoo, Cookoo, (the sound of a cookoo clock) I sense craziness a-brewing...
AAAaaah, I'm worried again! Rick is not healed yet but it seems that he's in for another ass whoopin. And boo, next is the season finale which means, a cliff-hanger and a long wait until the next episode. What's going to happen? I'm scared!
