Are you feeling down in the dumps? Maybe it's because, in the one week since The Walking Dead delivered Glenn back to us, the recaps for “Heads Up”—and their accompanying comments sections—have suggested that it's lonely out there for anyone who feels the show's trolling of audiences was more than just a dubiously executed PR strategy. You may be thinking how it's possible that anyone could have thought that Glenn had reached his expiration date given how all the breadcrumbs dropped at our feet pointed to the contrary. (Even the admittedly cheap gaming of the show's credits was a sign.) Maybe you also feel that the audience's anxieties were too pointedly being wrapped into the narrative fiber of almost every episode since “Thank You” for Glenn's prognosis to have been anything but good. If so, then you probably also believe that the show's writers, in getting us so hot under the collar, thought they could sneak by us all the stock narrative contrivances leading up to this mid-season finale.
