The Walking Dead--Mostly Here to Freak Out About the Finale, tbh

I came down with a cold and spent most of the day watching shows off my DVR and sleeping so by the time The Walking Dead rolled around I was ready for something very dramatic and awesome but this episode was just okay for me. I don't have a lot to say about it, but here are a few quick hits:

*Happy Rick/Carl/Michonne--love to see it, freaking me out, tbh. Happiness is never good, right? Of course I said this last year about Glenn and Maggie and they survived so who knows?

*Glenn and Maggie reunited, yay, though Glenn's refusal to care for Tara annoyed me. At least, Rosita noticed which gave me a reason to have any sort of feeling about her at all. These three new characters are still just alright to me. Why did Maggie burn the photo, though? It just seemed unnecessary.

*The group Daryl is with is after Rick's group. Ugh.

*Terminus. So there is a very popular theory floating around about Terminus that I suspect is probably correct. But the place just seems odd, unprotected, overly trusting, and...empty? THOUGHTS? Also, is it not weird that everyone's been like...wooo Terminus let's go there? Because I mean to me I just do not trust people that much.

Okay finale talk and speculation. (slight spoilers)

TV Line released the season finale poster and was all...ARE THEY GOING TO KILL RICK? Season finales always mean deaths, and to be honest, I'm STILL not over Andrea's. The preview was largely concerned with Rick/Carl/Michonne. It's been said that Rick will be pushed more than he's ever been pushed and go lower than ever.

Rick has lost his wife. And (to his view) his baby daughter. That kind of only leaves Carl? Or himself. I could see death as being the lowest Rick would go.

I know one tiny filming spoiler. FILMING SPOILER READ NO FURTHER IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW. They showed this a little in the preview, but basically Rick opens a railway car and screams. This spoiler makes me think he doesn't die, but...

Andrew Lincoln is going to be on The Talking Dead next week for the first time ever. A lot of times actors appear on this show after their characters have been killed off.

I just I don't think I can express how much I do not want Rick, Carl, or Michonne to die!!! I will be so upset if any of them are killed off!

Someone talk me down from this ledge and give me hope and other ideas for what could happen. The only other thing that I can imagine is that what Rick sees in the railway car is unrelated to people he loves, but very much related to just how warped people have become in the world, (i.e. the Terminus theory which I don't want to say outright)

EDIT: Hmm just read some comics spoilers that have me feeling better! But also traumatized, lol.


Oh! I also watched the new CW show The 100 and I liked it! I guess I'm just a sucker for post-apocalyptic worlds. I mean, it's definitely a CW show, low budget, confusing set-up, but I think I could definitely get into everything else going on during the show. So fingers crossed that it stays good!
