The Walking Dead Season four finale, A was a reckoning all right, just as Joe promised. Unfortunately things don’t go as they should for just about everyone in this week’s show. After watching the sneak preview at the end of last week’s episode, Us, fans of the show were shown a blood drenched Rick sitting and he appeared to be shaken. This one clip, along with the Twitter rumor mill that was going full blast, put fans in gore mode and they readied themselves for the possibility that at least one main character was going to be dispatched. Messily.
Last night’s episode of The Walking Dead finally allowed viewers a glimpse of the sanctuary of Terminus and in Us this end of the line destination looks deadly. Whether it’s the deserted look of the place, where the paint looks barely dry and the whole compound seems eerily like the Marie Celeste, or the solitary woman who greets the group. Granted there is this lone female who is there to welcome the first of the survivors to enter, but her calm acceptance of these potential new members to Terminus feels about a ersatz as powdered eggs.
Episode 15 of The Walking Dead, the penultimate episode of season four, seems to be pointing out that there is no you in us or, for that matter, in Terminus. As was pointed out back in Inmates, all roads do, apparently, lead to Terminus. Is this a good thing? Probably not as it looks like Joe may be right in his assertion that Terminus is a lie. Not just for him and his little group of killers either.
This week’s episode of The Walking Dead: Alone begins with Bob Stookey; showing how he existed before running into Daryl and Glenn, this particular segment could be called people who need people as all the protagonists in this episode are in that place of needing one another. The show is still giving Rick, Carl and Michonne a breather as it focusses on Bob, Maggie, Sacha, Beth, and Daryl.
Episode 11 of season 4 of The Walking Dead: Claimed was a mixture of crazy cheese bonding and Rick at rest. This episode gave insights to three separate stories. Carl and Michonne started off lightheartedly and after an awkward moment, Michonne decides to go searching for provisions with Carl and she talks the still recuperating Rick into staying behind and resting up. In this episode, Michonne is shown to have a lighter side which continues to shows an even greater depth to this “kick-ass” character. While these two friends forage for supplies the audience learn more about the samurai sword expert.
