We never get exactly what we wish for on The Walking Dead. The Season 4 finale did give us a mini Team Prison reunion … but it was in a dark Terminus train car, and it was missing a few people, and some of the present people might start missing a few limbs.
Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs), Tara (Alanna Masterson), Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz), Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt), Rosita Espinosa (Christian Serratos), Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), Bob Stookey (Larry Gilliard Jr.), Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan), and Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) are all stuck in the same train car, marked “A.”
Currently missing: Beth Greene (Emily Kinney), who hasn’t been seen since she was abducted at the end of Ep 13, “Alone,” and the mini group of Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride), Tyreese (Chad Coleman) and baby Judith, who were last seen on their way to Terminus at the end of Ep 14, “The Grove.”
Robert Kirkman talked to TheWalkingDead.com about what’s next on Season 5 for Ty and Carol. “People have reunited in that train car at the end, but Tyreese, Carol, and Judith are still out there. I think we’re gonna go in a pretty unexpected direction with that one.”
Unexpected! What could be unexpected? That they don’t arrive at Terminus? Or are they already there? RK said they're still "out there," but it would be unexpected to see they were trapped in a different train car. We saw that powdered milk on the ground, and it made us think of Judith, even if we know she's not in that "A" train car.
What if Ty and Carol aren't at Terminus yet, but they do arrive — and save the day? Maybe it’s Hammer Time for Tyreese? Carol has a history of being saved — by Daryl, Andrea, T-Dog, etc. — and it would be EPIC for her to be the one to save Rick and company, then reunite Rick and Carl with baby Judith. There’s no way Rick wouldn’t be thrilled to see her after that.
What do you hope is next for Carol and Tyreese? Do you see them arriving at Terminus or do you think Rick and company will be free of the place, then meet that group on the road, maybe en route to D.C.?
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October 2014 on AMC.
