Were down to just ONE episode left in season 6 of The Walking Dead and tonight’s episode titled “East” left us pretty much looking at our television screens and screaming:
Before we get to that moment lets discuss how we eventually got there shall we. Darryl is still fuming over the death of Denise at the hands of Dwight with his own crossbow.
With revenge on his mind Darryl heads on outside the gates, Glenn, Michonne and Rosita who doesn’t want to be around Sasha at the moment for sleeping with Abraham (yuck) head on out to stop Darryl.
In the meantime, Carol developed a conscience and decided to pack up and leave Alexandria. Carol is over the bloodshed and decides Alexandria isn’t where she belongs anymore. Her new boo thang Tobin finds the note she leaves behind and shows Rick. Already having booted Carol out of the group before for something he reveals later in the episode was the right move, he and Morgan set out to find her. So that means pretty much the best fighters aren’t there to protect Alexandria with the threat of the Saviors attacking the town hanging over their heads.
Carol takes one of the vehicles used to block the gates and is well on her way to wherever the hell she’s going. Unfortunately her journey is cut short by a bunch of jerks a.k.a Saviors in a pick up truck who decided to shoot her tires out.
Boy did they learn impeding Carol from getting to her destination was a bad idea quickly .The truck jerks were well aware of Alexandria and it’s location. They assumed that Carol was from there even though she provided them with a fake name and told them she wasn’t. Carol begins to do the hyperventilating thing she picked up in the last episode making the jerks nervous. What they didn’t know hidden in her sleeve was an automatic weapon that she uses to easily dispatch of her would be captors.
Carol manages to escape but one of the Saviors managed to survive. Rick and Morgan are still hot on her trail they pull up to inspect the damage Carol left behind.
Rick and Morgan never catch up with Carol, Morgan decides now is a better time than ever to clear the air with the leader of Alexandria. Morgan reveals to Rick that he held one of the Wolves that attacked Alexandria captive in the basement of one of the houses. He tells Rick how that wolf escaped holding Denise hostage and him and Carol fighting about it. Morgan then goes on to explain by saving that wolf that he somehow started a chain reaction. The wolf saved Denise from walkers and Denise wound up saving Carl after he was shot in the eye. Morgan described it at the “circle of life”.
Morgan is really on some nonsense of late and it clearly carries on this teaser from next weeks episode.
Morgan convinces Rick to let him go on alone and find Carol and that Rick should head back home to Alexandria. We believe that was the smart thing to do! Meanwhile how are Glenn, Michonne and Rosita doing on their mission to stop Darryl?
They finally catch up with Darryl or basically Darryl catches up with them. Glenn and Michonne try to convince Darryl that he should give up his quest for revenge and return home. Glenn and Michonne both fail in changing Darryl’s mind and Rosita decides she agrees with Darryl. They eventually split up with Darryl and Rosita leaving and Michonne and Glenn staying behind. Unfortunately things go south very fast for both Glenn and Michonne as they run into a familiar face.
The saviors led by the now dickless Dwight surround and outnumber Glenn and Michonne forcing them to surrender.
Thing’s aren’t looking too good right now for Glenn and Michonne and we already know The Saviors are out looking for blood. Glenn also doesn’t know poor Maggie is having issues back home with the baby as she falls to floor screaming in pain. Michonne and Glenn looks like they are about to be saved when Darryl and Rosita find them. BUT unfortunately Dwight gets the jump on the both Darryl and Rosita,
Dwight wastes no time with Darryl this time around and well he does this:
Dwight mutters out ‘you’ll be alright’ as the screen completely fades to black. But can we trust that ? We shall find out next episode. Peep the trailer for the 90 minute season finale below:
Negan is finally here!
