    That is if she ever makes it back...

    She left straight from the compound with Heath right before they found Maggie and Carol were kidnapped to go on their 2 week run. They didn't even go back to Alexandria. They thought it was over...


    In that time, her girlfriend Denise was murdered. Tara had asked Denise to come with her on the run, but se couldn't even though she wanted to...

    The Saviors and Negan (who she thought they got rid of) are terrorizing Team Family and now Alexandria is under new management...

    Big Brother Abraham has been brutally murdered...

    As well as Glenn, her dear friend, her savior (no pun intended) and her guide...

    Their goodbye...

    I truly hope they don't gloss over this. I know a lot of fans don't care or indifferent to Tara but I love her and it showcase her character. She's already lost her whole family and saw them die, another girlfriend, she didn't want to do the Savior attack because it reminded her of The Governor (but did it anyways both times for her family). Not to mention she going to be going through whatever the hell it is she's going to be going through on her run with Heath. If he dies, that just going to be another fucked up thing for to deal with all at once. The new Cinnamon Roll is about to go through some shit when she gets back home. If she gets back home...

    While I am not the biggest Tara fan, it should not be overlooked that she lost 3 loved ones while away. That would be a pretty devastating blow for anyone. I would not be surprised if she ends up joining Maggie at The Hilltop.

    WOW. I did not think of this. She was very close to Glenn, Abe and of course Denise. I hope they don't gloss over this either.

    I'm no Tara stan but it's awful and I do want to see it handled well. I really can't fathom how she's going to find out. Who gets to be the bearer of bad news? I mean telling someone that they've lost a loved one is hard enough but telling someone they've lost THREE!?! :omg:

    I was wondering too. I thought maybe Michonne, since she's one of the leaders will probably sit her down and tell it to her. Rosita since that's pretty of her best friend much her best friend (I don't even think Tara knew about the Rosita/Abe break up since it happened right before the Savior attack and she left right after). Maggie since they were close as well. Eugene would awkward, painful, and painfully awkward...

    I had another possible theory that Tara may get kidnapped by the Saviors, ends up being brought back to Negan (for recruitment or whatever since they probably don't know she's apart of ASZ). She runs into Daryl and it's Daryl that has to explain to her what happened (he was there when Denise died and was the cause of Glenn's death)...

    I feel bad for the Cinnamon Roll. She's been through a lot already and it actually give the character something to work with and some development (her and Rosita are underused despite being around since season 4). Also I want a queer character named Tara to actually live. They have a tendency to get killed for some reason lol...

    Dude...she woke up from being passed out and found out Noah died. Awful things happen when she isn't there (physically and/or mentally). I hope the writers address this. This is some serious emotional baggage. I hope they don't gloss over this.

    I don't know how I forgot about that one with Noah (they were buddies too)...
    [​IMG]
    Couldn't find a gif of her goofing and trying to get the 411 on Holly from him. Or when she asks for him when she wakes up...

    Not to mention she's the most accident prone person in the Apocalypse...
    [​IMG]

    Damn. This girl really has been through some shit. For her to still have the personality that she has is a miracle because I'd be jaded as hell if I've been through all she has. She's a lot stronger than I guess us fans of the show realize. I hope they showcase her more, especially with this. Since Glenn's gone, she's the only true cinnamon roll left...

    I would not want to be in her place. The thought of finding out your loved ones were brutally murdered would have drove me to the brink.

    I like Tara. She's my second fave behind Michonne.

    Goodness, I wouldn't want to be the bearer of that news. And who knows if Heath is still alive or not. If she lost him during her run, and then to go home to find out your girlfriend, best friend, and close friend were all murdered and by the same group (whether same group doesn't really matter, just thought I'd mention it), that will be devastating news.

    I agree that this is something that needs to be addressed. Tara's not my fave, but she's ~ okay by me.
    Seeing as how close she was with these characters, I would be upset if she is forgotten in all of this.

    I wonder if Rosita and Eugene are going to tell her... :(

    It's definitely going to be addressed, they wouldn't give her supply run an entire centric episode then skip over a HUGE emotional setback/trauma like this devastating amount of loss. I don't know how they'll approach it. I would've said for Maggie to tell her like she did with Noah but Maggie probably won't be at ASZ when Tara gets back...

    Interesting that four characters are currently unaware of the deaths/new leadership situation: Carol, Morgan, Tara, Heath.

    Why intentionally exclude four characters from the main narrative and what significance will their reintroduction have?

    I wouldn't be surprised if Tara ends up becoming a Savior by accident. Like she captured and joins the Saviors out of survival since she can't go back home only to find out what happened by Daryl, Negan and being sent to as a worker bee to retrieve stuff from ASZ or Hilltop. That would be fucked up...

    I wanted to read this thread because of the thoughts everyone has posted here. Poor Tara, everyone she had a bond with, except Rosita and Eugene...gone, Maggie at Hilltop. I was thinking about her friendship with Noah, which I will never be over, too. Glenn, Abe, Noah, and Denise. Too sad.

    I just stumbled on this thread and I gotta say, I am really disappointed in Tara's reaction to Denise. I thought that there would be more of a reaction when she found out about Denise, a show of sadness, tears perhaps?? Lol Honestly, Daryl was more sad about Denise dying than Tara in my opinion.

    They really missed the ball on how impactful Tara coming back could have been. Nobody else had come home ignorant of what has transpired. To see her witness and react to the new ASZ should have been way more compelling. Three deaths, a subjugated leader and a new regime in charge is huge. We didn't even see much reaction to Heath disappearing either. Very disappointing.

    Do you think it was supposed to come off as trauma? I know they have all experienced so much loss, and they have come to accept that losing loved ones is their day-to-day reality. But, it seemed so unrealistic. I mean, that's why Team Family is different. They love each other, are a family. I kept thinking: "Okay...what gives?"
