In the season finale of The Walking Dead, we find out what’s the deal with Terminus.

We can all agree that there are certain aspects of AMC’s The Walking Dead that seem a little, shall we say, far-fetched. The most improbable of these scenarios will be reviewed here each week.

Mildly Improbable

On a hunger scale of 1 to 10, Michonne is a 28. That is physically impossible. Ten is the maximum, lady.

Obviously the snipers at Terminus were trying to shoot badly and guide the crew into the boxcar, but what a massive waste of ammo. Perhaps Terminus has a bullet factory on site.

Pretty Improbable

Once again, the gang of rednecks manages to sneak up on Rick in dead silence totally undetected. These drunken losers have a level of stealth not even seen by professional ninjas.

Extremely Improbable

Even Carl isn’t stupid enough to blindly run towards a stranger who is yelling “help!” That’s a good way to get yourself killed.


Carl’s teen angst became even more ridiculous when he got mad at his father for saving him from a creep. Show a little gratitude, you brat! You almost got anally raped by a 300-pound hillbilly!

“Too Long, Didn’t Watch” Episode Recap

Rick’s group gets ambushed on the road by the merry band of thugs, and Daryl helps them to kick ass and take names, killing the whole bunch of mouth-breathers. The next day, our heroes make it to Terminus, entering the back way. It seems normal until they notice that these people have a bunch of familiar possessions. This results in a chase and a shootout, and finally Rick and crew are ushered weaponless into a train car and reunited with Glenn’s group. Rick vows revenge, but it’ll have to wait until season 5!
