The inevitable Whisperer War in between our favourite “Walking Dead” survivors and Alpha’s followers just inched a small bit closer, as tensions in between the bald, flesh-wearing villain and Carol reached new highs on Sunday evening.
But Alpha is not the only issue plaguing the residents of Alexandria, who have been also dealt bouts of short-term blindness, hallucinations, PTSD and an onslaught of zombies that kept arriving in waves.
Let’s start out with these zombies, which arrived at Alexandria’s door in new batches each two hours for more than two days. The survivors believed Alpha was sicking her horde on them soon after they had crossed the borders on several occasions, but Lydia stated that wasn’t her style. Gamma essentially confirmed Lydia’s beliefs when she popped up, saying the walkers weren’t from them as she demanded Michonne and business meet Alpha for a chit chat.
The meeting in between the two parties possibly could have gone a small far better, as Alpha ripped them a new 1 for wandering into Whisperer territory. Understanding why the survivors felt they had to place out the fire, on the other hand, Alpha showed some mercy — just asking for much more land and not anyone’s life. Carol talked back, although, saying none of them want to “place up with this bullshit.”
Alpha twisted the knife when it comes to Carol’s grief, telling her Henry “screamed your name just just before we took his head.” Carol responded as any wildly sleep deprived, battle worn and vengeful particular person would when confronted with nasty comments from the particular person who killed their son: by almost shooting her in the head. Michonne intervened just in time, the bullet flew elsewhere and Alpha forgave her, “mother to mother.”
They all walked away unscathed, but Carol was furious. “That bitch has to die,” she told Michonne and Daryl, who became increasingly worried about their buddy as she continued to unravel. Unravel how, you ask? Very first, she spied Whisperers on their land who may perhaps or may perhaps not have essentially been there. Then, when they reached a developing exactly where she believed they may perhaps have run to, she began seeing points.
Her initial hallucination was a household-ec book cover that showed her — in her shaved head days — at the dinner table surrounded by all of her dead kids. She then dreamed up an whole conversation with Daryl, as he (AKA her subconscious) warned her of the dangers of getting overtired. Lastly, she believed she was trapped, hung upside-down by her feet and tasked with killing a group of walkers. As an alarm went off, she located herself surrounded by zombie corpses. What genuinely went down right here, we’re not completely certain — although we later find out she was correct about 1 issue: they have been getting followed.
The final shot of the episode flashed back to the area complete of walker bodies, just before following a trail of blood revealing that 1 of them was, in reality, a Whisperer. She may perhaps be a small off her rocker, but Carol’s nonetheless perceptive!
In the B-storyline this week, Negan came a small closer to freedom, as Aaron begrudgingly recruited him to aid fight off wave soon after wave of walker coming toward Alexandria. The partnership was all Gabriel’s concept, but Aaron nonetheless did not trust the town prisoner at all.
The two genuinely got into it as Aaron brought up the death of his boyfriend, Eric, who was killed by a Savior. “Inform me why the like of my life had to die!” he asked, as Negan recommended he wasn’t getting protected nicely sufficient and everybody was just undertaking what they could to survive. That only infuriated Aaron much more, but a walker covered in a toxic plant interrupted the argument, attacked Aaron and gave Negan a window to escape.
Temporarily blinded by the hogweed increasing on the zombie, Aaron was in dire want of help — which Negan ultimately offered. A new understanding in between the two seemed to have been formed right here — although star Ross Marquand told TooFab not to count on a complete-on friendship in between them anytime quickly.
Elsewhere, Eugene got a crushing blow from Rosita, who created it explicitly clear that she would in no way be interested in obtaining him as something other than a buddy. We believed that was currently clear as crystal, but it devastated Eugene, who genuinely just desires to get more than it. Viewers also saw Siddiq struggle with his PTSD from getting the sole survivor of the fair massacre. Just just before he genuinely started to spiral out of handle, he was lastly capable to speak about it with Dante, a medic who served in Iraq. Yay new pals!
