So the first group has arrived at Terminus. Was pretty empty except for the one woman....friends or foes...any guesses?
The town is filled with vampires. The lady is a slave of the vampires. She is used to lure people in for the the vampires to eat. Beth has already been eaten. Michonne will be awaken as the new vampire slayer because the old one died. The zombie king is in Washington DC. Once they destroy him all zombies will die.
It was weird for the town to not have any guards around and just one person outside. No locks or anything on the front door.
It was nice to see Maggie and Glenn find each other, I still think they aren't going to let something that "good" last. The tunnel was pretty cool. I work with some huge Walking Dead fans of both the comics and the show.....here's their current Terminus theory.
I'm actually a little anxious to watch next week, I have a bad feeling...might make my husband watch it first.
I thought the tunnel scene was cool.
I am guesting season 5 will be them running from the cannibals and Daryl new group and trying to make it to Washington. The scientist and Tera make for the weirdest couple on Walking Dead so far.
I think Maggie and Glenn are going to be just fine, the writers are having far too much fun with them to kill them off anytime soon. An Walking Dead needs at least one happy story.

I'm not so sure the show will want to move to DC. Maybe Alexandria, but I imagine it's cheaper to keep it out of cities.
Just a Question, am I the only one that does not trust that Scientist? I mean his Group is so Dead set on getting him to DC and save the World, that it just seems off. He obviously is not quite Normal in the Head given how he talks to others. He appears to be an avid Gamer, so it would be easy for him to pull out the Backstory of some Virus-outbreak Game and most would never notice. I just have the bad feeling his Story will turn out to be Bull**** down the line. He doesn´t even want to tell most People, only that Duke Nukem Wannabe seems to know and belief it.

I finally got a chance to watch this today.
Eugene was supposed to be the one who had contact with people in Washington, I don't know if Abraham and Rosita ever heard him actually talk to them(and I don't remember if Abraham said he that he did). Eugene could have made the whole thing up(and faked communicating with people in DC) to make himself out to be some kind of hero on an epic quest so he could get some really nice but kind of gullible people to protect him and be his friends. He seems like that type of guy.
Terminus seems to weird/creepy to be good(lone, sort of creepy looking woman offering them food in a place with unchained gates). I was thinking they might be some kind of cult, but cannibals also works, or they could be both I guess.
But he does seem off. I think they're going for a gamer with poor social skills, he did talk about games a lot.. I'm not sure his story is true.. If he did know something and thought it could save the world he would be telling everyone who would listen. Classified doesn't mean anything when there's no one left to steal the secrets. The more people who know the better the chances of the information getting to Washington.. Keeping it to himself doesn't seem right..
As for Terminus.. The place seems wrong somehow. The layers of fences with no guards didn't seem right at first. But then the walkers are attracted to living people, they seem to be able to sense them, guards at the fences would attract walkers and make Terminus less secure. Just making sure the gates can't be opened is enough to keep them out. And enough distance between the outer fences and the buildings/living population would stop the walkers sensing the people inside..
PH's theories in spoilers
As for Terminus, it's possible they work hard to keep noise low and stay out of sight from the walkers to prevent them from clamoring at the gates.
Though, that doesn't stop a herd/swarm from happening to pass by like what happened in Season 2.
I think Abraham and Rosita just know whatever Eugene told them, I don't know whether what he told them was the truth or if it was some made up fantasy quest though. People are willing to believe a lot when they're desperate for something better, kind of like Tara did when she went along with the Governor's plans for the prison.
Eugene also doesn't seem in too much of a hurry to get to DC(for someone who supposedly has information that he needs to get to Washington so it could save what's left of humanity), wasn't he the one who accidentally shot out their tires(or their gas tank or whatever) and then suggested that they tag along with Glenn for a bit since it was too dangerous to go forward because they didn't know what was ahead(or something like that). And in this episode he decided they needed to see if Glenn and Tara made it out of the tunnel(so he could live with himself after he saved the world). He's also the one who suggested that they continue tagging along in order to check out Terminus(supposedly to see if they had anything they could use to help out on their journey). What he's saying makes sense in a way, but it also makes it kind of seem like he's going off on side quests in order to stall a bit and maybe make new friends. He just seems to be too over the top weird to be for real(Abraham is a bit over the top too though).
I totally agree Terminus is too good to be true but I've seen a lot of comments about how they could just push open the door/fence, while it was pretty obvious Glenn (I think) had to undo a chain that was wrapped around it. It was pretty simple but then so were the ones at the prison and the walkers never learned how to undo those.
Unmade Plans (WIP: 11/20):
Sam's life takes a turn in an unexpected direction when she's faced with an unplanned pregnancy. The decision to keep the baby and raise it on her own will alter her life forever. Relationships are put to the test, especially the one between her and Jack. She doesn't know what to expect from him and he surprises her at every turn.
On FFnet or AO3
My S/J fics can be found on FFnet and AO3. I also tweet and tumble about the ship and my writing/stories. /
From what, I remember the fences at the prison had the chains wrapped around them several times or had locks(or something) securing the chains. At Terminus, all Glenn seemed to do to open the outer fence was walk up to it, lift his arm, then a short piece of chain slid through a fence link and they pushed open the fence(he didn't seem to have to undo or unlock anything, and it didn't look like it took any effort at all to open it), the inner door/fence was unchained and they just pushed that open. Maybe he was supposed to be unlocking/unlatching something or unwrapping chains, but the way it was shot/edited made it look like no effort at all was required to push open the outer fence.
