Last week’s episode (Season 6, episode 7) left us all with a wonderful feeling of gratitude just in time for Thanksgiving, and we were indeed thankful for the return of our beloved Glenn and his relentless determination to save people, which inevitably may get him killed. I was bracing myself in the last episode for something horrible to happen to Glenn, but quickly took comfort in knowing that the odds of the producers/writers/directors bringing Glenn back just to knock him off again would be highly unlikely.
But now it’s looking like Maggie could possibly be in serious jeopardy with the crash landing of the ‘tower’ and the storm of the zombies into Alexandria. This plot is turning into a role reversal of Romeo and Juliet (sort of…I’m a romantic at heart) with us and Maggie thinking that Glenn may in fact be dead, and then him actually being alive (YAY!!), and now Maggie possibly falling victim to the zombie hoard, only to be discovered all too late by Glenn. There is never a dull moment in this series, which keeps us all gripped and devoted. And where are Abraham, Sasha and Daryl?
I’m sure tonight’s mid-season finale will bring everyone together in what’s likely to be one big TWD cast party, no? And my ideal closure to this Thanksgiving weekend would be to have all of our most cherished characters survive and live on to the mid season premier in February. I would definitely be grateful for that.
