I just saw an article on MoviePilot.com that had me thinking. So I had to go back to the DVR recording of the episode and watch again and here is what I stumbled on. In Episode 11 Season 4 "Claimed" you have Michonne and Carl go for a supply run. While in a house Michonne is looking at paintings hanging on the wall that look like they were painted by a child. A sunflower, a tomato or peach looking fruit , and a dog playing. There are others like a bunny and such but those stood and I will explain in a bit.
She is then handed a painting that was wrapped in paper. When she unwrapped the painting there was a girl who had had one eye (the other eye was X'ed out of the painting), scattered with blood dripping on her face and had her red hair braided on one side. Later she stumbles on a girls room that has a sign on the outside the door that reads shhh they are sleeping. On the inside of the room there is a family all propped on the bed and chairs like a little girl would do if she was playing with dolls and on the wall mentions Mae Maes room.
Now follow my thinking here. At the very end of the last episode Maggie and the gang enters Terminus with ease and observes the tranquility of the compound. A woman named Mary welcomes them and offers them something to eat. Now as they were walking the images of sunflowers growing in pots were striking. And Mary also looks like the image of the girl in the painting Michonne had seen. Matter of fact you can argue that Mae Mae is a nick name for Mary.
Is Mary as crazy as we think?
Now there is speculation that Mary is offering up meat from here victims since there is no one around. This could be possible. I am going to throw something else out there. What if there is a room like the Governor had but instead of heads there are dead people all propped up like dolls in different positions. This is all speculation of course but the evidence suggest at the very least that Marry and Mae Mae are the same person.
Which also has me wondering is this story plot loosely and I mean loosely based off the Story of Mae Smith from the Walking Dead stories . Which I only glanced at to be honest. I can see obvious differences but the character may have been spawned from this one. I just thought I throw this out there as a possibility considering the coincidence of the name.

Rumor of sniper
There is also a rumor of a clip that was taking off of youtube about after she greats the group of a sniper opening up fire on them. And of Darrel getting the holy hell beaten out of him by Joe. This may or may not be a spoiler. So I apologies if it is.
Why is Terminus unguarded and what's in the food?
One last thought. Why is there no signs of Walkers anywhere near Terminus . Can it be that the Walkers themselves fear the place? That their primitive senses sense danger and they know to keep away from it. Maybe its not meat of live humans being served up but tainted Walker meat. I know that is reaching but my mind for the fun of it went into what if mode. Here is one other thought of the food that my wife also mentioned to me. Can those sweet ribs that she is about to serve actually turn out to be sweet little Beth's ribs? Just saying she became a moral center and we all know what happens to moral centers in that show.
I like to hear from readers on this to see if their thoughts.
