@Sonata: @takashichea: These past few episodes have been a gold mine for Beth x Daryl shippers. So, if you have time, here are some Beth x Daryl MVs that were made last week because of the latest episode.

@Acura_Max:

Nice find! These are called MVs, huh. First I heard of AMV (Anime Music Videos), GMV (Game Music Videos), and now MVs.

The 2nd video cries angst and emo for me. I like them all. First one was cool.

Episode was pretty depressing tonight, but still very good overall.

Best episode in a while. Onto Terminus!

Also, anyone else find it strange that the house still had working gas for the stove? Electricity is always out unless they use a generator so I just assumed gas would be out too.

I feel bad for Lizzie and her sister. Finally found out who fed rats to the Walkers. In Talking Dead, one sister refuses to kill the living while the other refuses to kill the dead. It was a nice foil I didn't notice. It was a sad episode. Didn't get to finish Talking Dead.

Daryl and Beth seemed like they were about to kiss or something at some point. My heart fluttered, lol. Now she's been captured and while the show probably won't go there... society crumbled, anarchists running shit, law of the jungle... she's probably going to be beaten, raped, beaten more, raped more, killed and possibly eaten depending on how low supplies are.

Sunday's episode was really good. Until the shootout part, I was thinking that neither of them seemed cut out for what the world had become and that if Shane was around, they might have been left behind somewhere. Mika was just too soft and the other girl seemed like maybe she would be able to pull the trigger if it. I knew she was off in the head but I figured at least she was off in a way that could protect others. Once that talk about befriending zombies was in though she was crossed out too. Really a shame because once they did get in the shootout, Mika seemed like she was finally starting to get it and I thought the other girl had snapped out of her thing. Oh well. Pretty good twist and ending. I like dark stuff and this was pretty damn grim.

@Daniel_Newton: Gas is pretty reliable. It's piped underground so falling treelines won't mess it up. In like every house I've lived in, the gas has never gone out. The power might go down in a storm or something, but the gas is always pumping. Up to a point, I think a lot of stuff should still be working in Walking Dead. A lot of systems like that are basically automated and could run themselves for the most part until they ran out of resources to feed off of.

Yeah, last night's episode was one of the most depressing ones...

It definitely seemed like the episode could go that way but I think that was intentional to show us that it wouldn't go that way, if that makes sense. They were alone, isolated, shared more with each other than ever before and got drunk together, but still didn't cross that line.

Now that she's been captured I could certainly see them going down the rape route and later Daryl finding her and murdering the shit out of the guys who did it. Not too sure about her getting eaten... though that would make a very dramatic episode.

Ah, that makes sense. I've always thought more things should still be working since lots of stuff is automated but whenever they find a new place the power is always out and I think the water too? Maybe I'm wrong about that though.

@sickVisionz:

In the Walking Dead comics, I heard Michonne was raped. In the TV show, it's pretty tame except for the violence. I wouldn't want that to happened to poor Beth or anyone. Yeah, we got another Beth and Daryl fan here!

Finally, we're at terminus. And finally, Glenn has reunited with Maggie. I'm betting that one of those two are going to die by the end of this season. It's likely that Maggie will be the one kicking the can. That scene with Glenn burning the picture pretty much sealed the deal.

@Acura_Max:

Almost forgot to reply. Pretty much everyone thinks Terminus is a death trap. Loved how Eugene took charge. If he didn't, Glenn and Maggie's group would have done for. Now, I know the sleeping fetish actually exists in western shows. I thought it was a Japanese cultural exclusive thing. Guys find girls cute when they sleep. Never really saw that in American shows. Then again, I only have seen American cartoons and not much TV or films.

I didn't even think about that photo foreshadowing. Can't believe I missed it.

Minor Spoilers for Season Finale (view at your own peril.)

But before you assume that it’s going to be all sunshine and unicorns if-and-when the gang reunites, Kirkman issues the following warning: “This is Rick Grimes being pushed to his absolute limit. And if you think you’ve seen that before, you haven’t. And the Rick Grimes that comes out of this is really going to shock people.”
-Robert Kirkman on the season finale in an interview with Entertainment Weekly
When it comes to Andrew J. West's Joe, Greg Nicotero says that it's an interesting story because those that have survived have done whatever it takes to get where they are. Whether or not West's Joe is one of the cannibals from the comic or not, he won't say, however, this whole season has been about survival and if eating people before they turn is the risk that needs to be taken to ensure your own survival is just what you have to do.
-Executive Producer Greg Nicotero on the cliffhanger and the possibility of cannibals in the season finale in an interview with Examiner.
This coming Sunday is the season finale of "The Walking Dead" and many want are dying to know what is going to happen, and whether story lines will be resolved. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem as this will happen as the season finale is set up in a way that it will help to effortlessly move into season five. Robert Kirkman has described it as the biggest cliffhanger that fans have seen.

Rick son going to die probably If I have to guess, and I like how they giving little clues on who behind who, like how darel found a piece of candy wrapping from rick group, and the flame in the forest in tyrus group. I feel like tick group might fight darel group. Just my opinion.

I don't think Glen or Maggie will die, but Carl might do. He's not a really popular character in the TV show, most people find him annoying.

I'm really curious about the dark secret of Terminus :D

@Acura_Max: @Jgames: @ElHa:

I haven't seen a lot of TV shows especially drama ones. Have you seen shows with the main characters permanently dying off and someone taking his or her place? In these zombie apocalypse series, no one should be safe except for the main character. That was my theory after only seeing this show and HOTD.
