An agitated Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) may have had the last line of The Walking Dead Season 4 finale — “They’re screwing with the wrong people” — as he was locked in a Terminus train car with Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), Glenn Rhee(Steven Yeun), Tara Chambler (Alanna Masterson), Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz), Dr. Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt), Rosita Espinosa (Christian Serratos), Bob Stookey (Larry Gilliard Jr.),Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), and Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan), but he clearly wasn’t the only alpha male who was pissed off by the unfortunate turn of events.
We only got a brief look at Abraham’s face as he met Rick for the first time, but it didn’t take much to prove that he was not pleased with the current situation. Honestly, we can’t say we blame him. Abe, Josh, and Rosita were on their way to Washington D.C. in search of a cure when they met Glenn and Tara, and now they’re locked in a train car. Not great.
Michael Cudlitz weighed in on his character’s mood, tweeting, “3 weeks and we are back at it....... #Abraham is not a happy camper. ; ) #choices. #options # decisions ..... #terminus.” Like we said, the unhappiness was hard to miss, but the idea that Abraham will have to make a choice is an interesting one.
We’re assuming our motley crew will somehow find their way out of that train car, so when will Abraham have to make his choice? Will the decision be whether or not to stick with Rick and his crew or go off solo? In the comics, Abe and Rick team up eventually, but Scott Gimple could be “remixing” that portion of the story.
Scott has hinted that the TV version of the duo could be “at odds in a big way” or not, if their missions match, but we’ll have to wait and see which way the cookie crumbles.
Do you think Abraham and Rick will join forces or be at odds with one another? Tell us where you stand in the comments below!
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October 2014 on AMC.
