When Hell on Wheels‘ previous episode ended Sidney Snow was laying in the street having been shot by Ruth and as this week’s episode, Bleeding Kansas opens, Snow is still alive and Cullen must rush to save the homicidal lawman to keep the woman from becoming a murderer. Bohannan packs Snow’s wounds with coffee grounds and runs to get Durant who initially refuses until he realizes that if Sidney dies Ruth will hang. Despite his reluctance “Doc” rushes to the Hotel where Snow lies wounded.
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.
