The Walking Dead Recap: Season 4 Episode 15: "Us"
We get to see a little bit of a lot of people this week. Yay!
Glenn, Tara, and the Three Musketeers
They're on their way down the railroad tracks when they see one of Maggie's messages. Woot woot! So Glenn starts running like an idiot. I understand his excitement but maybe he should look at the map first to get an idea of how much further he might have to run. Plus, running on railroad tracks is just asking to trip and fall. Furthermore, don't you think you should stick with your group? Let's just take everything down a notch, buddy, and keep walking at a normal pace.
They come upon a tunnel and that's where the Three Musketeers are all "Yeah, you're on your own, suckers." Only a fool would go into a tunnel that you can HEAR WALKERS GROWLING in with just a little bit of ammo and Tara as a partner. They leave on good terms and Stupid Glenn and Burdened-By-Guilt Tara venture into the dark tunnel alone. Tara twists her ankle AGAIN and Glenn decides to risk his life saving her instead of leaving her behind like she asks him to, and we think they're both going to die until miraculously the Three Musketeers, along with Maggie, Sasha, and Bob, show up and save the day. So everyone's reunited!
And what better way for a couple to reunite than for Maggie to burn the picture of her that Glenn had been saving? "You'll never need this again." I wouldn't be so sure. And what's the harm in holding onto a photo? Maybe he'll want to look at it when she goes to the bathroom. It's not like they will always be together for every second forever and ever. What's with people burning stuff on this show just to prove a point?
Daryl and the Numbskulls
Daryl's new group is just as bad as we thought they would be, though the leader seems to be at least somewhat better than the rest. Daryl's having a hard time fitting in but it seems the leader likes him the best.
Some d-bag in the group tries to frame Daryl for a crime and then gets beaten to death for it. The d-bag was a child molesting creep so he's better off dead but still, it makes the group seem extra scary. Because it's not like they killed him for that, they killed him for lying.
We also hear about the Rick-in-the-house incident from the leader's perspective and it's clear they're going to try to kill Rick if/when they ever find him because of the stunt he pulled back at the house. Oh, you mean killing a bad guy and then trying to survive, all after YOU invaded his turf and threatened to rape the woman he was with? Yeah, Rick sure is a horrible guy. Kill him!
Rick, Michonne, and Carl
Not much happened with them, which means we finally had an episode where I didn't want to slap Carl. The only thing of note is that they dropped a candy bar wrapper on the railroad tracks (side note: I know it's the ZA and there are dead zombies all over the place but it still seems like we shouldn't be littering) and then Daryl and the Numbskulls passed the wrapper later. So that means Rick and Co. will already be at Ominous when the gang arrives. That won't be pretty.
We end the episode with Glenn, Maggie, Sasha, Bob, Tara, and the Three Musketeers arriving at Ominous. It seems like Woodbury all over again - good from the outside but still giving off a creepy vibe. I would just try to stay positive and look at the flowers, but we know how that worked out for Lizzie. And it irks me that our crew didn't close the gates behind them. Maybe they want a quick escape route (I'm trying to give them the benefit of the doubt), but it sure does seem like a few zombies could sneak in while they're slowly scoping out the place. Dummies.
Next week is the season finale! I think I'll go ahead and pop some popcorn now and sit on my couch and wait. I'm so excited!!!
