Buzz stemming from last week’s heartbreaking edition of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” translated into an improved rating for this week’s telecast.

After posting a 6.4 adults 18-49 rating with 12.9 million viewers for that episode, in which Lizzie and Mika Samuels were killed, “TWD” garnered a 6.7 rating with 13.5 million viewers for this week’s installment.

The fourth season’s penultimate segment, this week’s episode featured a portion of the gang (including a reunited Glenn and Maggie) arriving at the buzzworthy “Terminus.” It also showcased Daryl’s adjustment to life with his new (temporary?) crew and a pleasant moment between Rick, Michonne and Carl.

Next week’s finale will likely bring more in the way of action, drama and heartache.
