Tonight is the night, Ladies and Gentlemen. Terminus has been discovered, Glenn and Maggie have reunited, and Daryl realizes that his new group might be deranged in the head. There have been multiple theories around the internet about what this new “sanctuary” has in store for the group but everyone agrees that it’s anything but good. Here are some of the theories that people have had in mind. MAJOR SPOILERS UP AHEAD SO BRACE YOURSELF.
1. Terminus is a group of cannibals-
Terminus is a cannibal camp. This has been the most common theory about everyone and so far the most plausible. For a place that is so safe and sacred, why were there no chains or locks on the doors or having anyone doing watch? It’s because they don’t care about who comes in. Also, Mary, the first person that Glenn and Maggie’s group encounter doesn’t seem to be exactly stable. Her first line, “Settle down and let me make you a plate” seems to be too calm for seeing a foreign group come into the territory. She probably means “let me make you a plate…OF HUMAN FLESH”.
2. Beth got kidnapped by Terminus folks and is being used as food-
Hey guys, remember Beth? Yeah, she was kidnapped while she was attempting to relieve that ridiculous amount of sexual tension with Daryl. For people who played the first season of the Walking Dead game know this situation already. It wouldn’t be surprising if they decided to utilize it in the show as well. And also it would be incredibly bad ass. Plus, who kidnapped Beth and what would they want with her? I don’t think it was for her singing.
3. Carl almost gets sexually assaulted by one of the guys in Daryl’s group.
An image has already been circulating the internet of a guy grabbing Carl by the face. So 90 percent chance that that is actually happening but who is the unlucky bastard who tries to feel up Rick’s son? If Kirkman is going along with the comic, it would most likely be someone from the group that Daryl is with because who else looks extremely sketchy that we’ve met so far?
Going alongside the sexually assault theory, this gives Rick a HUGE opportunity to viciously kill someone. When it happened in the comic book, Rick killed the guy by pulling his throat apart with his bare hands. Can we have that or is that too much for AMC?
5. Gareth is going to be introduced.
It was already announced that Andrew J. West would be playing a character named Gareth. But who is he? He’s not in the comics at all so the audience will be completely surprised with what kind of character he will be. Will he be the leader of Terminus? Will he be a good guy? We will just have to find out.
