Let’s Try This Again
Rick decided to convince Jadis to join his side in the fight against Negan. Rick points out that The Saviors are loosing and that he’s willing to forgive Jadis and her people of the junk for trying to kill him last time. Rick’s offer still doesn’t resonate with them and they decide to toss Rick into a shipping container naked. Rick seems oddly patient as if he knows hell things will work out for him eventually.
Meanwhile, his son Carl is out looking for that guy his dad scared off in the season premiere. Carl finds the survivor named Siddiq and offers his friendship in the form of water and food. In return, Siddiq gives Carl a lesson in spirituality telling Carl he kills walkers to “release them”.
The two go on a walker releasing journey which turns into an extremely close call for Carl in the process.
Carl asks Siddiq the questions and is satisfied with his responses, looks like Carl is going to bring him back to Alexandria. Will Carl come to regret this move later? Is Siddiq someone that can be trusted? The season is winding down, things are going to pick up these final remaining episodes.
