Have we all recovered from last week’s horrifyingly depressing episode? I certainly haven’t. Luckily for us, the writers gave us a moment of pure bliss this week. Not quite enough to make up for what they did to us last week, but very good nonetheless. So let’s get to last night’s episode, the penultimate episode of Season 4. Or ‘Season Snore’ as I like to call it when I’m being snarky.
First up we have the ‘Glenn Gang’, who find one of Maggie’s Terminus graffiti scrawls, something that completely invigorates fan fave Glenn. Eugene makes incredibly awkward advances towards Tara, calling her hot. Ew. The mullet isn’t his only obstacle in getting Tara though, she informs him that she likes girls. And Rosita chastises Glenn for risking Tara’s life in order to find Maggie. It’s all a mess and it’s obvious that these two factions will part ways soon.
Glenn and Abraham strike a deal, to continue on together until sundown. Abraham, Eugene and Rosita are still determined to head to Washington D.C. once they find a vehicle, but until sundown at least, they are all united in helping Glenn and Maggie become reunited. And to paraphrase the Peaches and Herb song, it’s gonna feel so good.
The group comes upon a tunnel and it is here that Abraham, Eugene and Rosita decide that that it’s time to finally part ways.
Tara stays loyal to Glenn, the duo enter the tunnel, which is duh, full of walkers stuck under rubble from a cave-in within the tunnel.
Meanwhile, Abraham, Eugene and Rosita find an operating vehicle, and Eugene actually does something noble, he goes to the opposite end of the tunnel in order to make sure Tara and Glenn are safe. I’m assuming it’s a noble gesture, although I still don’t trust the mulleted one. Just a hunch.
Inside the tunnel, of course Tara becomes injured and stuck. She begs Glenn to just leave her and save himself. BUT WAIT! A rescue team including Eugene, Abraham, Rosita, Sasha, Bob AND Maggie arrive to save the day. I cried. I ain’t gonna lie. Maggie and Glenn forever.
The whole gang agree to all go to Terminus, with the majority still planning on heading to D.C. the next day. We FINALLY arrive in Terminus, where the gang is met by an eerily cheery woman named Mary. Seems legit. I have no doubt everything will be perfectly fin form here on out. MmmmHmm.
In the Daryl storyline things are not as cheery, in a good way or and eerie way. He’s still with the brutal group of men that invaded the home where Rick, Michonne and Carl were shacked up a few episodes back. Daryl is adapting to fit into the group, and it’s not pretty. I don’t want hardened Daryl back! I want to keep shipping sweet Daryl and Beth! They have some strict rules all in the name of ‘avoiding conflict’. When Daryl and another man have an issue over a rabbit and the man is caught trying to set Daryl up, he is savagely beaten for the offense. Lying bad. Beating someone to death….okay I guess?
After Daryl finds the man dead the next morning, he asks the group’s leader where they are headed. They too are on their way to Terminus, tracking a man who killed one of their group members. Gulp. We all know he means Rick. A candy bar wrapper lays on the train tracks, something we saw from a brief earlier scene with Rick, Michonne and Carl, also on their way to Terminus. We see where this is headed, right? Yeah. Things are looking grim for the finale.
We’ll always have this moment though:
