Not to mention that, given The Walking Dead has basically turned from Rick's show into Negan's, he's really outstayed his welcome already, and the prospect of seeing more of him in whatever wounded state he takes isn't an enticing one. Is Maggie right to bide her time and then show Rick why she thinks he is wrong? They planned to follow the map from Dwight but didn't exactly trust it either, and that is exactly what Negan was expecting from them. And Jesus, you know, he would not have killed the surrendering Saviors, but he's not Morgan.

We saw, in a flashback, how Rick's late son Carl had written a letter pleading for his father and Negan to settle their differences.

The dimly lit scene, with its deep, ominous music, has fans anxious Widow Rhee is acting like a villain, and even more anxious what this secret clique means for the future of The Walking Dead. Like, he could kill Negan.

Madison may have her problems, but lack of affection for her children is not one of them (in fact, the biggest complaint about Madison through the first three seasons was how much she smothered her children). For those few seconds, he described an optimistic future in which he and Negan could work side-by-side - and appeared to win over his enemy, as Negan's eyes began to well up with tears. He tells Rick that maybe if he had killed him, Carl would still be alive.

During an interview with The Wrap, The Walking Dead universe chief content officer Scott Gimple said, "this is absolutely something that new fans can jump right into, just as Morgan has to jump right into the story of Fear the Walking Dead". He tells her that Rick is trying to build something, and he needs all the hands he can get. The biggest moment, of course, being Rick Grimes sparing Negan's life and taking him as a prisoner to rot for the rest of his life. Georgie is the character in Episode 12 who gave Maggie the book with blueprints of technology that could help them rebuild society at the Hilltop. So far, new show-runners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg have largely started fresh: at the beginning of the episode, Morgan meets John-a drawling cowboy with an antique revolver who had to stop talking to himself because "I started to enjoy the conversation too much".

It's easy to see why The Walking Dead chose to do this: it follows the comic books, it means they can keep Negan (a character the writers are now in the thrall of) around, and means they can still have Rick as their noble leader. Will Maggie actually go through with her revenge plot? This man named John is played by none other than Garrett Dillahunt who you might know from The Gifted, Raising Hope, and 12 Years a Slave. Going by the name Al for short, this new survivor has a SWAT truck rigged with guns and plenty of supplies to survive the apocalypse. This leaner approach allows the series to feel nimble and unpredictable where The Walking Dead can be bloated and lumbering-especially in recent seasons.

Al is unlike anything we've seen before on AMC's zombie survival drama series, making her character one to watch going forward.

Morgan's still not right: Somehow the sight of former Savior prisoners coming back to the Hilltop from a zombie-killing run got Morgan so worked up that he almost put his bo staff through young Henry's neck. This includes all past episodes of The Walking Dead as well.
