'The Walking Dead' recap: The Beginning Is the End Is the Beginning

It’s the penultimate episode, and the puzzle pieces of the season are finally fitting into place. The picture that they create, however, is a little too idyllic. Maggie and Glenn are reunited, alive and well. (Yay!) Along with them, Sasha, Bob, Tara, Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene have survived. (Yay!) Plus, they have all reached Terminus. (Yay?) I have a sick feeling at the pit of my stomach that Terminus may be home to those with a discerning palate. And I'm not talking sunflower seeds and corn. For more "Us" insights, check out Dalton Ross' initial thoughts here.
Glenn and Tara plus Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene
Glenn, Tara, Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene kick off the episode walking along the seemingly endless route to Terminus. Eugene is chewing Tara’s ear off (metaphorically) as he rambles on and on about dinosaurs, video games, and batteries. For the record, he doesn’t believe as other do that the Zombie Virus killed of the dinosaurs, as others may believe. Then again, it’s “enjoyable as hell to think of an undead ankylosaur going after a diplodocus. That there is a video game worthy of a pre-order.” This guy is supposed to carry the secret to the cause of the Zombie Virus? Sure he is.
At night, Abraham and Tara keep watch as the others sleep. Abraham speculates on why Tara is so loyal to Glenn. At first, he suggests it's because she’s in love with him, a “girl in love with the guy she’s trying to help to get to his girl” situation. This isn’t some kind of post-apocalyptic Some Kind of Wonderful. Instead, the shadow of the Governor and her guilt over the events at the Prison loom large over her. See more
