Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan) wasn’t about to let anyone or anything keep her from finding her main man Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun), and that caused a bit of a rift in her post-prison trio, which also includes Bob Stookey (Larry Gilliard Jr.) and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green). When Maggie left in the middle of the night in search of her fiancé, Bob immediately said they should follow her and not let her go on her own, but Sasha was perfectly happy letting her find her own way.
Bob tried desperately to convince Sasha that following Maggie to Terminus in her search for Glenn was the right thing to do, but she wasn’t about to change her mind, even after Bob gave her a memorable smooch in an effort to persuade her otherwise. Eventually Sasha and Bob split, with Sasha finding a tall building to hide out in and Bob hot on Maggie’s tail. Once Sasha realized she was totally alone she broke down, only to spot Maggie outside from her window above.
After a horde of walkers were roused by the noise, Sasha ran downstairs to help Maggie fend them off and together they were successful and able to meet up with Bob, who was still keeping to the train tracks in search of Maggie. Bob greeted Maggie with a friendly hug, but embraced Sasha warmly, at which point even Maggie realized something else was going on between them.
As Maggie knows, loving someone in this world can be very dangerous and make you very vulnerable, but it’s also very rewarding and is what’s kept Maggie so motivated since the collapse of the prison.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Lauren weighed in on TWD’s newest relationship, including what it might mean for everyone. “There's a lot of hope for that relationship. If Sasha can find brother, Tyreese, then there's room for love there as well, which would be really nice.”
In fact, as Lauren points out, love seems to be all around for Team Prison even though (or perhaps because) they have no foundation anymore. “There's a lot of love blossoming and these past few episodes have shown three stages of what you do for your loved ones. Bob kisses Sasha to break her out of this cynicism that she's in. There's this maybe blossoming thing between Daryl and Beth where we finally see him opening up and then who knows, she's maybe kidnapped or killed — we don't know yet what's going to happen there. Then Maggie is leaving these notes for Glenn. I think overall this is maybe the most romantic episode of The Walking Dead so far.
Whoa, that’s quite a declaration, Ms. Cohan! Do you agree that Episode 13: “Alone” was the most romantic instalment of TWD to date? Tell us your thoughts below!
The Walking Dead Season 4 airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
