Since Carol was banished in last season’s The Walking Dead, only to come back after The Governor stormed the prison and the survivors scattered to the four winds, No Sanctuary gave her complete redemption letting Carol rule as the group’s saviour; one non Carol related surprise was Morgan returning and apparently following Rick’s trail. The first question that springs to mind is just why Morgan has shown up now. Is it now his turn to “do a Carol?”
The Internet is awash with articles about last night’s The Walking Dead finale and whether or not that plate of barbecued meat was the remnants of missing Beth. Admittedly, it is easier to expect the worst possible scenario whenever a major character goes missing. Especially when said character has had some sort of personal epiphany and grows because of it.
This week’s The Walking Dead: The Grove is easily the most disturbing, gut-wrenching and horrifying episode of season four’s second half, 43 minutes of broken youth and death. Watching Carol, Tyreese, Lizzie, Mika and baby Judith advance towards the hoped-for sanctuary of Terminus makes the viewer tense up with the secret that Carol yet to reveal before the show really digs in.
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 10 of season 4 The Walking Dead: Inmates seems to be saying that all roads may lead to Terminus. The “safe haven” promised at the end of the railroad track has a fairly ominous sounding name. Although the real meaning of the word began with the Latin term for boundaries and the God Terminus who ruled over same. It can also mean the end of something, like the final stop at journey’s end, or in everyday usage, a bus terminal. It is, perhaps, the saying or reading of the word that makes it seem less than hopeful. Terminus does sound pretty close to terminal, which also has various meanings; deadly being one of them.
