Wow, what in the world is going on!? This episode of The Walking Dead is so intense I don’t even know how to start my blog at this point! But let’s get right into it, please note, this blog WILL contain very important spoilers so if you haven’t watched this episode DO NOT READ ON! If you have, then read on and enjoy!
Let me start by saying this, I don’t know if it’s true or not but if they have killed off Glenn this way I tip my hat to the writers. Here is why: As most of you know, in the comic Glenn was not killed by zombies and instead was killed in a very important series of events by Lucille (if you want to know who this is and don’t know then read the comics fool!). To have him be killed by zombies in this fashion doesn’t seem as climatic but it did serve the purpose, and served it well. Because I don’t think ANYONE was expecting it. That being said, do I hope he isn’t dead? Yes, I do. But if he isn’t I am almost afraid it will seem like a cop out unless they do it just right. I do have faith in the writers of The Walking Dead so I do believe if they are going to keep him alive for now they made the right decision to make that happen. I have a theory of how they could do it that it wouldn’t seem like a cop out and may work to the benefit of the story, I will explain that below. But first, I do have to say if they keep him dead in this fashion then I won’t be mad. It does make the story better, it keeps it fresh. I do love Glenn’s character and he will be missed but with the world in The Walking Dead it IS going to happen, a lot, and to anyone there.
Now, my idea of how they can keep Glenn alive without it seeming like a cop out. Let the Wolves save him. You may have just slanted your eyebrow and said ‘WHAT?’, but hear me out. You let a group of Wolves go in and save him from the herd (assuming he was protected and not bitten, or even IS bitten). They save him but at the same time they are ‘capturing’ him. So the fans get to keep Glenn alive, the story can benefit because the Wolves then can use hims as collateral to take over Alexandria and it serves as a catalyst to move the story forward into a new story line. It could even serve as a way to introduce some new characters (Negan anyone?). Do I know how a group of Wolves could pop in and save him from a herd that size? No, not really.
Okay, so in an effort to not make this blog ALL about Glenn, let’s discuss Rick for a moment. He is in a hell of a situation right now as well. Trapped, just had taken out a few Wolves, in an RV that won’t start. It seems he is in a lot of trouble. That said we do know (or assume) that Darryl is on the way to him and we all know Darryl is awesome. But there is something else, he did cut his hand and get zombie blood in it. We know everyone has the ‘virus’ inside them and will turn into a zombie upon death. But for us comic readers we know that zombie blood in a wound can do certain things, is that the case here? Are they really going to go that route with Rick? I guess we wait and see! Michonne was fantastic in this episode as well, the writers did an excellent job telling Glenn’s story through someone else the entire episode. They ALSO did an excellent job tying seasons together. When Glenn called Rick a dumbass, like he did in the first season when Rick was in the tank. Also we say Hershell’s pocket watch. So many little things that lead to big things that make this story so good.
In conclusion, amazing, this episode was amazing. If you read this and haven’t watched it, you know what happens to an extent, but STILL watch it. This is a great season so far! Way to step up the game writers, keep it up!
