In the latest episode of The Walking Dead, we FINALLY find out what happened to Glenn.
IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED THIS EPISODE, STOP READING NOW. CUZ GUESS WHAT, I’M SPILLING THE BEANS. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED.
For the past few weeks, viewers have been going ape shit about Glenn’s fate? Was he dead or alive? If he was dead, how could AMC do that to us? If he was alive, where the hell was he? Well children, now we know. Our man is ALIVE! See, when Nicholas blew his brains out and they both fell into a crowd of walkers, Glenn fell under him and had to watch as the walkers basically tore Nick apart (thank goodness he was already dead). Glenn then pulled himself away from the feeding frenzy, dragged himself under a dumpster and stayed there until all was clear. When he finally came out, Glenn was alone, or so he thought. While looking for water, Enid comes out of nowhere and drops a bottle of water for our man. Enid, who left Alexandria after the Wolves attacked, had been hiding out in what looked like a thrift store. Glenn asked about the horn that distracted the herd and is told it was just “people.” When he asked about Maggie, he got no answer and realized that Enid had skipped out on him. He followed her but decided to go in a different direction.
In Alexandria, Rick was busy being Rick, checking the wall and running things. Morgan was outside doing his daily practice when Rick asked if they could speak later, to which his friend said yes. Rick then visited Maggie, who was standing watch looking and not looking for Glenn. He told her that her husband, as well as Darryl, Sasha and Abraham would all make it back alive. In the meantime, they should come up with a plan to divert the walkers and leave an open space for all of them to get through.
As Glenn made his way through the town, he came across David who was killed when he was attacked by a gang of walkers. Glenn ends him and then decided to look for Enid. He found her in a diner and tried to talk her into coming back to Alexandria. She said no and then pulled a gun on him for good measure. Really, chick? He took it from her and they eventually left.
Rick took Ron out to teach him how to shoot. Carl came along, basically letting dude know he was an amateur and would be scared the first time he tried to shoot. We all know that Ron only wanted to use a gun so he could shoot Carl and/or Rick, but that silly goose is letting his hatred cloud his judgment. If he thinks Carl won’t take his ass out if he tries anything, he’s a bigger dummy that I thought.
Morgan, who has been keeping a Wolf hidden in one of the cells, went to Dr. Denise for some advice, but Rick found him first and asked if they could have that talk. The talk ended up being more of an inquisition, with Rick, Carol and Michonne (where the hell has she been?) asking about the Wolves he let go. Morgan tried to tell them that not killing the Wolves was right because he believes people can change. Whether that philosophy will come back to bite him remains to be seen. But if Morgan wants to continue to survive in that crazy world, he may have to throw all of that to the way side. He eventually went back to see Dr. Denise and asked her about antibiotics. He confessed that they are for someone else and she followed him to the cell. Carol, ever watchful, followed them and then took baby Judith to Jessie so she could babysit. Carol took the master keys and opened the front gate, coming face-to-face with Morgan. She wanted to know who he was hiding, which ain’t gonna end well.
Later, Michonne and Rick had a pow-wow about next steps, but both had different views on letting the other residents help. Rick wanted to keep the original group in charge, but Michonne thought he needed to start trusting the others if they were all going to survive. I agree. How else will they learn to take care of themselves if Rick and the others are always saving them?
Rosita, worried about Abraham but doing her duty anyway, tried to train Eugene and some of the other residents. As usual, Eugene was scared to death, which pissed her off. She told him that the only thing worse than dying was living while others died all around you. Unfortunately, Eugene was still too much of a chicken to do more and left the group. That stuff is going to get old real quick. Eugene had better step up or he’ll end up either dead or outside of that wall.
Spencer, who was already feeling pretty useless as it is, decided he was going to crawl over the walkers, jump in a car and lead them away from Alexandria. Unfortunately, he was too heavy, the damn cable broke and he fell into the herd. Tara took her gun and proved she was the badass that she is, shooting walkers in the head so Rick, Tobin and Morgan could pull Spencer’s silly behind back up. Out of harm’s way, Rick went off on Tara (who promptly gave him the finger) and then Spencer, telling him to run crazy shit like that through him first. But Spence asks, “Would you have listened?” We all know the answer to that question is a big fat negative, because Rick only listens to Rick (and sometimes Michonne).
After all the craziness, everyone noticed a bunch of balloons floating up into the horizon, and Maggie knew it was Glenn. She ran to Rick telling him as much and then more craziness ensued. One of the towers, which had been damaged during the Wolves’ attack, fell over and breached the wall. We all know what that means. Are the Alexandrians ready for another attack? Will Rick and the others be able to hold off the herd? Will Glenn make it back to Maggie in time?
The Walking Dead airs on Sunday at 9 p.m. on AMC.
