Nothing can ever prepare you for when one of your favorite characters time is up. After 5 seasons, we know this could happen at any time. So with that in mind,
***** Spoiler Alert *****
Thank You kind of says it all right there. I’m still processing and I might be in the denial stage. It wasn’t until I watched Talking Dead that I started second guessing myself. Initially, like everyone I just assumed the obvious. OK, really, if you don’t want to be spoiled STOP. READING. NOW.
You are still reading….
Okay, not my fault man. It’s possible, however unlikely, Glenn doesn’t get eaten. Nicholas falls on top of him, Glenn get’s covered in blood. It’s kind of a suck out. On Talking Dead, they brought up the point that David’s note to his wife was a parallel for Glenn and Maggie. That makes sense. This leads me to believe that Glenn is really dead or dying. Then there was the Scott M. Gimple statement that we will see Glenn, or parts of Glenn, or another version. This sucks even more. Seeing Glenn as a walker or part of him would be even worse. While I haven’t read the comic, I know Glenn dies eventually. Which sucks, because I’m always anticipating it.
So how was your Sunday night? Yeah. Mine too. Mine too. *group hug* Maybe the worst part was that Steven Yeun wasn’t on Talking Dead afterwards. Perhaps he will be after the cryptic statement gets revealed on screen.
I really hoped Nicholas would have been able to fully redeem himself. I liked where his character was headed. Not fond of the new characters like Heath. He kind of got a baptism by fire tonight, so maybe he will become more interesting. He’s no pizza delivery boy though. *sniffle* What?
There were some nice moments. Michonne putting Heath in his place. Daryl going back and forth between leaving Sasha and Abraham and going back to Alexandria. David’s story which had similarities between Michonne and Glenn’s own story. Then there was Rick’s run in with some stray Wolves. I wasn’t sure if they were the 5 that Morgan let go. I think someone on Talking Dead said they were.
Questions: Oh, yeah. There are a lot of those. Is Glenn Really dead? If not, will he come back as a walker? Will we see part of him somehow? Maybe being carried by a Wolf? This is a very unsettling time in my life.
Rick cut his hand. I’m puzzled by this. Partially because Rick should be able to take out 4 distracted walkers without cutting himself. Partially because it’s gotta have some significance or it wouldn’t have happened. So, even if he makes it out of the RV from hell, what will the repercussions be? They brought something up on the Talking Dead, but not having read the comic I didn’t quite get it. Rick certainly won’t be around forever. Morgan or Carol can lead the group.
What happened to Judith? Rick pulled a container of baby food off one of the Wolves who attacked him in the RV. I went back and checked. We don’t see Judith or Enid. Hopefully she didn’t take the kid.
Is Enid a Wolf? I know, I brought this up before but they touched on it again on Talking Dead, and it’s bugging me. It makes sense. Thinking about how she suddenly had every key known to man (and some not) and then bailed. Suddenly, JSS took on a whole new meaning. Then again, if she met the Wolves, would they have let her go? I’m a little skeptical.
If Glenn ends up being dead, how will Maggie take it? After she lost Beth she took that really, really hard. It’s not going to be pretty. Will she literally shoot the “messenger”. I would not want to break the news to her. Speaking of news, who is going to tell her? Nobody knows for sure. Will someone go look?
I have a theory: Before Glenn leaves the shop, he radios Rick to tell them where they are and what they are going to do. He calls Rick “dumb ass”, which was a reference to when they first met. Glenn went and got the bag of guns Rick was carrying. I’m not sure if it was in the same episode, but later on they end up camouflaging themselves in walker blood.
After watching Glenn fall to the ground, in the first shot he didn’t have anything on him. However, when you see guts being ripped out, it was clearly above him. So, I don’t think he is dead–yet. With that many walkers on him, though. It’s hard for me to believe there is a way out. He could cut a walker open and put it’s blood on him. I think Rick might head for Glenn and use the same tactic. He might have to in order to escape the RV. He does have 2 dead bodies with him. Okay, so I guess it’s not really a theory–more of a hope.
Zombie kill of the week: I thought about not having one this week. With all the losses we had to experience. This seemed a little hollow. Rick taking out 3 Wolves from inside the RV was pretty cool. I would have to give it to the group effort of Michonne and company once they opened the X store doors. There was shotgun spray and it took out at least 4 walkers. That was pretty cool. You know if I was going to have a zombie kill of the week.
