The Walking Dead Haiku Recap: Tunnel of Love?

In which some of the groups run into each other. Finally!

Editor’s Note: Don’t get us wrong, we are as obsessive as any TWD fans. But let others pontificate at length. In our view, the show’s narrative conflict is so essential—living vs. undead, civility vs. anarchy, prey vs. predator—that it demands to be distilled in the purest form possible. What better serves that purpose than haiku?

And yes, they may be a little cryptic, but there are a few seventeen-syllable spoilers in this recap.

Season 4, Episode 15: “Us”

Everyone’s walking
along Georgia railway lines.
Getting anywhere?

First: There’s Glenn, Tara,
Sarge, Rosita, and Eugene.
Slowly making friends.

Doc. Eugene Porter
Won’t shut up. How annoying.
A bothersome nerd.

Glenn gets Maggie’s note.
Gallops straight toward Terminus.
Will they reunite?

Carl, Rick, and Michonne
Heading on down the train tracks.
Just joking around.

Carl shares his candy.
Litigious brand protection.
“Big Cat,” not Kit Kat

Daryl and new biker friends,
it’s a redneck jamboree
with some tough camp rules.

These are same bad guys
whose pal Rick killed a while back.
That doesn’t bode well.

Meanwhile, Glenn and gang
find a new Maggie message
at tunnel entrance.

Sarge and pals take off.
Loyal Tara sticks with Glenn,
despite injured leg.

Oooh! Creepy tunnel.
A zombie obstacle course
for Glenn and Tara.

With hail of gunfire
Maggie appears, kills zombies
Big kisses for Glenn.

Thank God they joined up.
Slowly the groups will converge.
None too soon for us.

Sunflowers, folk songs
welcome them to Terminus.
A bit cultish, y’all?
