The Walking Dead Season 4 spoilers: Maggie, Sasha and Bob are ‘Alone’
Well, we just got through watching The Walking Dead episode that might as well have been called “Daryl and Beth go for a drink, and end up in arson hi-jinx”. In a mostly somber episode that gave us some much-needed insight into Daryl’s backstory, the archer and the lesser-known Green daughter set light to an old shack as a means to exorcise some of their respective demons. And possibly kick off a new romance on the show. Who knows?
As our scattered survivors trudge through the wilderness following the destruction of the prison, the show has focused largely on separate storylines. Alone returns us to Maggie, Sasha and Bob Stookey as they wander through a thick fog. You know what’s coming next, right? Drooling hordes of zombies! Unable to see more than a few feet in front of them, the trio have no idea how many undead foes they’re facing – and we know from another clip that they’re seriously low on ammunition.
The last thing we hear is Sasha screaming Bob’s name – could it be that we’re about to see the first character death of this half of the season?
The official synopsis for Alone simply reads “One group finds a shelter; a group has a realization about protection.” We’re kind of interested in the shelter mentioned in the first part of this – will we finally get to see the “Those who arrive…survive” sanctuary?
Elsewhere, we catch up with Daryl and Beth – in a cemetary of all places. The idea of cemeteries in The Walking Dead is pretty weird since most corpses are reanimated, burial is a luxury, especially if the people left behind are fighting off slobbering packs of starving walkers! As we hinted at the top of this post, there’s a shot of them both holding hands at a grave – it could either be a simple act of comfort or there’s the beginnings of a new romance. What’s your take – should Daryl and Beth get together and repopulate the earth?
