New Show Recap: The Walking Dead, 4×13, “Alone”

Well, we all know we’re not getting to Terminus until the last episode, right? Terminus will obviously be next year’s plotline, so Walking Dead can’t get too close to it. Remember the prison didn’t come into view until the very last moments of season 2’s finale. I’m guessing we won’t get that exact same set up. I’ll go with “some groups converging on the town at the end” and pick Glenn/Tara/Trio, Maggie/Bob/Sasha, and Rick/Michonne/Carl. They’ve got to reunite someone and having both Glenn and Maggie back together and Rick and Carl finding out Judith is alive seems a bit too much happiness for the show. So, that’s my bet, friends.

And then, in the midst of all the jokes filling my Facebook feed about bootstraps, it all seemed to make sense. Read More But My Boots Just Have Buttons: Maggie and the Belief in Boot Straps
