Yet there she stands in her sweater, BBQing something (or someone?), giving us that creepy, placid smile.
Terminus has been mentioned in the show many times this season promoting that all who arrive survive.
But is this place with sunflowers, an unlocked gate, and a welcoming committee too good to be true?
Of course, it’s The Walking Dead.
The original name of Atlanta, Georgia? Terminus.
When they were building the railroad to the American Midwest the line’s end was named Terminus, 1837.
A settlement was built there in 1839. In 1842 the name was changed to Marthasville (named after the Gov of Georgia, Wilson Lumpkin’s daughter). Then changed to Atlantica-Pacifica in 1845. Finally shortened to Atlanta, incorporated, 1847.
Of course, all this was after the land was stolen from the Creek Indians.
But that’s a horror story for another day.
So as Season 4 of The Walking Dead expires, does Terminus once again mean the end of the line, this time for our filthy and exhausted heroes?
Is this place a ruse for The Hunters, a group of cannibals, to lure in weary survivors to make an Unhappy Meal?
Will the group meet up only to become meat?
Is Mary the woman from the bloody painting Michonne saw?
What will happen when The Claimers find out who Rick is? Then who will Daryl choose?
Look at all the pretty flowers at Terminus, no, wait, don’t look at the flowers, especially if Carol is around.
Will the group be pushed to its limits?
Who will arrive?
Who will survive?
Anyone else want to scream, It’s a trap!
