The Walking Dead has been keeping us on the edge of our seats lately. We’ve barely been able to breathe since the group lost the idyllic prison they called home on the mid-season finale. And things have been getting darker and more hopeless since the group scattered. Unable to tell if their friends or family are alive or dead, the survivors are no longer filling their days with farming and pretending the outside world doesn’t exist. Instead, they’re just trudging along. They’re also running into some unsavory characters along the way.
This week’s episode of The Walking Dead, “Alone,” took things to the next level. As we know from watching nearly four seasons of The Walking Dead, things get infinitely worse just when they’re looking a tiny bit better. So we really shouldn’t have been shocked when Beth was taken right after getting so close to Daryl. But The Walking Dead gets us every time, and we nearly lost it as we saw that car pulling away.
At the same time, Sasha has been at her wit’s end with Maggie, who seems to be holding onto false hope that she’ll find Glenn. She hasn’t been faring too well either, using walker blood to leave Glenn messages on her way to the mysterious Terminus. Still Sasha and Bob end up going along with Maggie. And the very end of “Alone” shows Glenn finding the sign for Terminus. Can things finally be looking up for our favorite couple?
With only three episodes left of Season 4, The Walking Dead has left us with more questions than answers. We desperately want answers to these five questions during the finale on March 30.
Will The Walking Dead give us answers or leave us hanging for Season 5?
1. Will Daryl Find Beth?
Our hearts dropped when Daryl finally got out of that walker-infested house to see a car driving away leaving him with nothing but Beth's supplies on the March 9 episode “Alone”. The two of them have been getting close during the last couple of episodes, and while we aren't sure how we feel about that yet, they were definitely changing each other for the better. Daryl was beginning to realize that there could still be good in the world. But will everyone’s favorite obsession revert back to his old ways if he doesn't find Beth? Daryl went running after the car calling for Beth, but quickly lost the trail and ran into a nasty looking gang instead. Meanwhile, we’re still wondering where Beth is! With the crossbow-wielding Daryl’s insane tracking skills, he’s the best chance of finding her. Will he be able to track her down?
2. Will Glenn And Maggie Find Their Way Back to Each Other?
Glenn gave up the opportunity to save the world in order to find the love of his life on “Claimed,” while Maggie has been working with an unwavering dedication to get back to Glenn after finding that he wasn’t, in fact, on the bus. They’ve both been keeping their eyes on the prize and have been refusing to listen to reason. With people calling them foolish and crazy, it looks like Glenn and Maggie might just get their happily ever after, as they’re both heading down the road toward Terminus. Will they both make it there and into each other’s arms?
3. Will Tyreese Find Out What Carol Did?
Rick kicked Carol out of the prison when he found out that Carol was the one who killed Karen and David in “Infected”. Sure, she had her reasons. She thought their illness posed a risk for the rest of the group. But Tyreese was enraged when the bodies were found and swore vengeance for Karen. So when Rick found out in “Indifference,” he kicked her out — not only because she had become dangerous, but also to protect her from Tyreese. Fate brought Carol and Tyreese together in “Inmates,” however. They found each other after the prison was destroyed, and now Carol, Tyreese, Lizzie, Mika, and baby Judith are making their way to Terminus. Is it only a matter of time before Tyreese finds out what Carol really did? How will he react now that he’s relying on her and has three children to worry about?
4. What is Terminus?
It seems like everyone’s ending up on those tracks to Terminus. With the sign and map saying “Sanctuary for all. Community for all. Those who arrive survive,” it looks like the survivors are finally going to find their safe haven. But, as we know from the numerous camps, Hershel’s house, Woodbury, and the prison, things can go from good to terrible in an instant. More than that, things that seem to be a utopia can often have a dark side. Terminus has become a big mystery on The Walking Dead. And all we really know is that it claims to be the answer. Everyone also seems to be heading there. Has the group really found paradise? What is Terminus? Do they even want to end up there?
5. Who Was Feeding Those Walkers Anyway?
The Walking Dead seems to have all but forgotten it’s big question from the first half of Season 4, but we haven’t. Who was feeding those rats to the walkers through the prison gates? We caught glimpses of a hand feeding the walkers. But we don’t know who was doing it. With her nearly killing baby Judith and killing those bunnies, our money’s on Lizzie. Plus, she’s just a really creepy little girl. Either way, someone was feeding those walkers, and we don’t know why. Is this ever going to be resolved or did the fall of the prison stop this person forever?
Can't wait to see more? Tune in to The Walking Dead on AMC this coming Sunday!
