SPOILERS! If you are not caught up on Season 6 of The Walking Dead, you should not read further.
Okay, Scott Gimple, we get it. We know all the characters have to deal with the repercussions of Rick’s failed mega herd plan. We know we have to see how they deal with the consequences and the mental strain. And we want to see all of that, we really do. But more than anything, we what to know WHAT THE @#$% HAPPENED TO GLENN!? Three episodes after he and Nicholas fell into crowd of walkers, we still don’t know! And we are pissed! Guess what? So is Norman Reedus who plays bad-ass Daryl Dixon.
In an interview by Entertainment Weekly Reedus feels the same way we do:
“I was in that episode. And I was still pissed at the end of the episode,” Reedus said. “I was in shock, and I was there!”
Reedus said that after the episode was over, he turned his television off and walked around his room in a daze, but added that the episode was full of shock and fear, so they must be doing something right.
He was quick to point out that the strangled cry of “help” from the walkie talkie at the end of this week’s episode definitely did not belong to Glenn (Steven Yeun). DAMMIT!
What we did see this week is that whenever anyone does a good deed, it comes back to bite them in the ass. When Daryl sees the insulin in the bag of his kidnappers after he escapes, he goes back to give it to the diabetic girl. He ends up getting caught up in their mess as well as his cross bow and motorcycle stolen. We’ve seen this theme in earlier episodes when Morgan kills the two guys in forest and one comes back as a walker that ends up killing Eastman. Don’t even get me started on the Wolves he didn’t do away with who end up launching the massacre on Alexandria.
Last week I ran across another interview with Ross Marquand (Aaron) who told ComicBook.com that showrunner Scott Gimple wasn’t going to leave us hanging in suspense. Marquand said Gimple planned to reveal whether or not Glenn was dead to fans pretty soon. I guess we need to define what he means by “soon.” Because three episodes later doesn’t feel like “soon” to me. A lot of people on the Internet (me included) are wondering if Glenn is the next Sophia. Remember Season 2 when Carol and others spend five episodes looking for her daughter? Clues were left, unanswered questions were asked, and hope was kept strung along until at the season finale we saw Sophia walker come out of the barn. This could very well be what happens to Glenn. Or not. But I’m getting sick of waiting!! I know a lot of other people are too.
Will we get any solid evidence on what happened to Glenn next week? Who the @#$% knows? All I know is Abraham and Sasha should NOT happen. Seriously.
