He’s alive! The viewers-only audience rejoices as the viewer-reader audience is likely snickering amongst themselves and being entirely too tempted to spoil things for them. Before we get too happy, Glenn’s brush with un-death has left some unresolved issues in The Walking Dead world… issues for those who enjoy the following: splitting hairs, overthinking, finding the real science in fake science, and those who enjoy nothing more than finding plot holes. It has to be the gift and the curse of having such an active and engaged fan base; it submerges the audience in the world created and with it comes passion and emotional connections, a feat unheard of for anything involving zombies. So let’s nit-pick!

5. Glenn’s survival forces questions about how Rick survived the RV.
Remember when we thought Rick was going to be killed or eaten? He was in the RV, the Wolves that had escaped Alexandria had the drop on him and stole a gun. In true Rick fashion, he’s able to fight them all off and plug them full of bullets before inadvertently shooting up the R.V. and rendering that useless. He also had that big cut on his hand and was quickly surrounded by walkers, only to, somehow, end up sprinting back to Alexandria alone and unbitten?! How? The mysterious injury turned out to not be a walker somehow and his process of survival was brushed over. There have been other survivals in past seasons that defied the odds but you don’t get two in one season. To have the main character escape without explanation is very unusual for TWD.
