Once again humans prove to be not only the most dangerous, but the most depraved. Merle beats Glenn bloody then sentences him to death by zombie; then the Governor does far worse to Maggie. Funny, you don’t see the dead killing each other.
As an aside, I have to mention: Glenn’s escape from “death by zombie” was truly one of the best scenes of the series so far. He’s taped to a chair and he still escapes and takes the zombie out. That was a serious man moment!
But through all this horror, Glenn and Maggie had a glimmer of hope. They knew they had friends that would rescue them no matter what?
Do you have friends like that?
Are you a friend like that?
Take a peek at Glenn and Maggie’s friends:
Start at 14:15
Beth: This is Maggie and Glenn. Why are we even debating?
Daryl: We ain’t. I’ll go after them.
Rick: Well, this place sounds pretty secure. You can’t go alone.
Beth: I’ll go.
Axel: Me, too.
Oscar: I’m in.
It’s easy to think about helping our friends on a physical level, but have you thought about the lengths you’d go to help them on a spiritual level?
When our friends are in danger, are we willing to take risks to rescue them?
