That's right folks, in episode seven we finally find out the fate of Glenn, and it's kind of a bummer.
Okay yes, I was on the #bringbackglenn bandwagon from the start, but crawling under the dumpster was the obvious escape plan. I guess after the writers had left us hanging for so many episodes, I was disappointed that there wasn't some sort of amazing twist and yes, even I thought it may be more exciting for Glenn to die after surviving the horrific scene.
But only for a split second ...
Glenn runs into Enid who of course ran away from the Alexandria Morons a few episode ago, proving she may be smarter than she looks, and in a way, I hoped there would be more to her story. Perhaps there will be in the future, but to me, she seems like the perfect candidate for a bad guy. Maybe a wolf in sheep's clothing or something similar.
In a perfectly fitting scene, Rosita (yes apparently she is still in the show) leads a group of Alexandria-nites in a training exercise. This seems to coincide with one of the old buildings that holds up the Alexandria walls, cracking through the middle. But this seems fake somehow. Why would they only be training the Alexandria-nites now? Better late than never? I guess ...
And then there's Morgan. After his star role a few episodes ago, we now can understand why he wants to save the Wolf he has in captivity. Enlisting the help of the pretend doctor, Denise, he seems to want to ensure the Wolf lives. Carol, in her new found role of Housewife by day, Ninja by night is left to follow Morgan and Denise and find out just what they are up to.
In the end, Glenn signals our apocolyptonites from outside the walls, but of course, in expert cliff hanger form, the rickety old building falls taking a large chunk of wall with it.
Although the story lines this season do seem to be predictable, and all filler episodes aside, episode seven does have the old school TWD feel to it. And just in time.
