It may sound strange to ask if people hope cannibals are running a sanctuary filled with our favorite Team Prison characters, but it is a cool storyline from The Walking Dead comics. Would you be disappointed if they skipped it?
Season 4 ends this Sunday, March 30 with Episode 16, “A,” and fans are wildly speculating that The Hunters — cannibals featured in TWD comics right about now — might be based at Terminus. It's possible we already met one of The Hunters in Mary (Denise Crosby), and maybe Gareth (Andrew J. West) is another one. Some fans think perhaps Beth Greene (Emily Kinney) is already there, and parts of her are being used for food. It's gruesome, but also "savage," which could tie into the Season 4 finale tease. Or it could be way off. No one ever confirmed The Hunters would be featured on the show at all, never mind in Season 4 at Terminus. They could be coming in Season 5 or the show could skip the storyline completely. (We hope they don’t skip it, but maybe you’d prefer that?)
Some comic book fans, or just general viewers, might be disappointed if The Hunters aren't featured or hinted to at all in the finale, but it’s not like there isn’t already enough going on for one hour. We have to set up some Team Prison reunions and deal with Joe's (Jeff Kober) marauders. So maybe it would balance out the story to have Terminus not be that bad. Maybe it's a place not too different from the prison or Woodbury, which both had good and bad qualities, depending on when you showed up there. (Just ask Tyreese and Sasha.)
Do you hope we get at least a taste (ahem) of The Hunters at Terminus, either during or right at the end of the episode, or would you rather not deal with cannibals amid everything else? The group is meant to hit the road for Washington, D.C. as part of Eugene's mission, so it would be strange to spend a ton of time at Terminus. But that doesn't mean cannibals have to be part of the reason we split at some point, whether in the finale or (more likely) in Season 5.
