"Us" has labored moments but proves a necessary episode overall, with newly introduced characters woven into advancing storylines.
The light at the end of the tunnel was actually a rescue party... and the first of our scattered group of friends finally made it to Terminus after a joyful reunion -- which was a welcome yet unsettling respite after last week's pint-sized slaughter.
Maybe we were in an uncharacteristically forgiving mood as we were watching it, but despite it committing all the sins we've been railing against all season, this time, we were entertained.
"Us" falls somewhat short of a clear focus once again, but still admirably manages to move things along...It's enough to drive anticipation toward the final installment, as we imagine most, if not all of the groups finally reuniting.
Attempting to predict just how disastrous Terminus will be, however, is where things get interesting.
Momentum is definitely starting to pick up, and has been since last week.
Watching each smaller faction walk those train tracks, edging closer to possible hope - possible sanctuary - was exciting in its possibilities.
Getting to Terminus has proven to be a long, arduous journey not just for the survivors, but for us as well.
"Us" was the definition of functional, but it got the job done.
The Walking Dead took a moment to remind us that there is - figuratively and literally - a light at the end of the tunnel after last week's grim events.
Robert Kirkman has managed to keep us further on the edge of our seats then ever before - especially with the shocking ending of episode 15, "Us."
Eugene has become incredibly important to this show; he seems to inherently be a good guy and, like Abraham (Michael Cudlitz), he brings a great deal of personality that The Walking Dead desperately needs at the moment.
It's been a long, slow journey, and for the most part, this episode dragged along like a one-legged walker.
