Princess! Thank goodness for Princess, I found this episode pretty entertaining despite the obstacles. One, Princess is a very interesting character, and secondly it was a great chance to learn a little more backstory about Princess. For instance, if this was an episode centered around Eugene I wouldn’t have been as interested.
The group were surrounded by a number of armed soldiers, Princess took a chance and lunged at a soldiers knife but got caught. During all the struggle Yumiko got hit in the head with a gun. All of the group were put into separate train cars, Yumiko was placed close to Princess, and Princess wanted to keep talking to Yumiko in fear that Yumiko had a concussion and you don’t want someone to pass out with a concussion. Princess was telling Yumiko a story about how horrible her mother and step father were. How her step father hit her, and sadly how her mother sided with her husband and alienated Princess.
Once Yumiko passes out Princess calls out for help, Yumiko is taken away, later someone comes for Princess to bring her for an interrogation. Princess doesn’t give the man any useful information, she frustrates the man enough that he hits her across the face across an old wound.
Princess ends back in her train car, in the morning she notices a piece of plywood over the wall in the corner, anyone who plays a video game knows that their is a secret entrance behind that board. Sure enough she is able to get out of the train car and runs into Eugene. Eugene tries to convince her to get back inside the train car and to trust the process. She decides to do just that and gets back inside. She later hallucinates Ezekiel coming to break out of there, they talk a bit but he seemed off. A guard comes inside of the train car and gets blindsided by ‘Ezekiel’, who keeps pummeling the guy time and time again, but he says nobody is going to hurt me anymore. When this happens you see the line blurred and that it was really Princess the entire time.
She ties the guard up, and gets his gun and leaves. She heads to the end of the gate where a couple walkers and ‘Ezekiel’ are on the other side. Ezekiel tries to convince her that she wants to leave, and that she is good by herself, and Princess says she is a super hero by herself. But she isn’t going to leave them because they went back for her. She gets back into her train car and apologizes to the guard. She finally answers the questions that she didn’t answer to the other guard before. She gives up the gun, and lets the guard free, she asks when she can see her friends and he was is like, “we just wanted to know you could play ball.” You will see them right now. He yells out, I got her, and opens up the door to see some guards and the other three friends with bags over their heads.
