Finally! We got some good news. I can’t talk about that though because, well, it’s a major spoiler. So “Heads up”,
***** Spolier Alert*****
There’s that. Now that we got that out of the way, YES! YES! YES! I was right! (so were millions of people) I knew Glenn didn’t die (okay, I was like 90% sure). He couldn’t go out like that. Holy hell though. I was holding my breath until the credits rolled at the end. I’m still very concerned for his well being. You know odds are that either him or Enid will not make it back.
Enid! I loved the interaction with her and Glenn. Especially near the end where he starts breaking through her defenses.
Glenn: Whatever kind of cheese you like, you got a heaping dose of it. Even though we were right, and it was Nicholas that got eaten, it was so improbable that he was able to get out without a scratch, wait them out, and then get away. I was thinking maybe someone would run by or something. I don’t even car, GLENN IS ALIVE. Period. End of story. Mmm cheese.
Ron: This is like one of those things you see coming from a mile away. Which is exactly why I think the obvious thing will not happen. He will not shoot Carl (Carl got shot in season 2 I think). My theory is that he will shoot either his mom or Judith (both on accident). It has to be something connected to Rick so that Rick can blame himself for teaching him. With Judith, Carl will end up blaming and hating his dad for at least half a season. Then Carl can unload on him with no regrets.
Eugene: Was Rosita too hard on the poor guy? I felt bad for him. I know he has to “toughen up”, but I’m not sure the “in your face” method works best for him. I think that guy needs to have his confidence continuously boosted.
Morgan: I don’t like the path that he is going down. I figured Carol would find him out (and he should have known better, after all he asked if she was a cop because she notices everything). My fear is that Wolf Dude escapes when the chaos starts. The group needs Morgan in so many different ways.
Our Father: I almost felt bad for Gabriel when Rick ripped his flyer down as soon as he taped it up. Maybe there will be a chance for redemption next week.
Spencer: What the f-ck were you doing bro? That whole scene was kind of weird. Was there not enough sh-t going on in this episode? Did we really need another little suspense moment? Reminds me of the scene in My Cousin Vinny where Joe Pesci is asking Marisa Tomei if there is anything else they could put on the outcome of the case he was working on (what? That movie is on like 12 times a week).
Tobin: I loved the moments he had with Rick while fixing the fence. When he said, “Don’t give up on us”, I half expected a walker to jump the fence and bite him. Usually when a character says something like that (or has a change of heart) they end up dead soon. I like the guy. I hope he survives a few more episodes.
Questions: As usual, the show gives us so much, but leaves us with many questions. Will Glenn and Enid make it back safe? I get the feeling one of them will not. Maybe, just maybe, Daryl and company will run into them and set a trail ablaze. That leads into my next question: Will they get back in time?
Will Carol kill Morgan? We know Morgan won’t kill her–unless he really, really, REALLY has to. She is already super pissed. When she finds out who is in the “damn cell”, she’s going HAM (hard as a mother flower). My prediction is, Wolf guy escapes during the commotion.
Who will Ron shoot? I doubt it will be Carl. That is just too obvious. I stated who I think it will be, so what do you think? It’s going to suck either way. Someone cool will go down.
Will they save Alexandria? History tells us they don’t stay in one place too long. It’s definitely worth fighting for, and only one section was damaged. I’m hoping. Hey, if Glenn could be saved…Too soon?
How many people will die in the mid-season finale? You know it’s going to be bloody. I’m predicting multiple deaths. Tobin, Enid, Glenn, Spencer, Ron, Someone Ron shoots, Eugene, Gabriel? Those are some of my bets. Not all of them of course. I’ll say 3-5 “tier 2” characters.
Zombie Kill of the week: Every walker Tara took down. That’s right! I know she had a gun, but she saved Spencer, for whatever that is worth. She gave Rick the bird. It was classic.
