RECAP: TWD, S08E06: The King, The Widow, and Rick

Okay, so we have definitely settled down. This episode again was not so intense, but, of course, TWD will always have an OMG moment! Now we are seeing more of the story grow, and some things being explained.

Our team has a clever way of exchanging notes back and forth while they are split up. I’m digging the new mailboxes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

UMMM, so Jadis feels artsy-fartsy while in the nude, huh? ๐Ÿ˜•

We see her in her trash-heap homestead in nothing but an apron, while putting together a new metal kitty.

This one looks like it may be a tiger. Does she know that Shiva is dead? And she actually bothers to put on clothes when she finds out it’s Rick??

So Rick offers the Heapstersย  (Scavengers) a deal again?!?!? Why would he consider trusting them again? Jadis even questions him about that. Jadan tells him no and has him locked into a cargo box (nude!).

Come to think of it, this whole episode had a Terminus feeling. The metal box, the one Savior talking to Jesus the way that Termite talked to Ty, and the warehouse Michonne and Rosita creep into appeared a lot like Terminus.
Carol goes to talk some sense into the King. As she walks up, Jerry, standing guard, tells her Ezekiel is not taking visitors. Like Carol gives a damn. Jerry tells her, Ezekiel told him he could go, that there was no need for him to be there, Jerry said that is all he had to do.
Gregory steps into his old study to tell Maggie to get rid of the Saviors. That there are too many wolves amongst the sheep. HA!
Rosita and Michonne going off when they are supposed to stay put and heal. On their way ‘to take a look’ at the Sanctuary, they hear the weirdest music and stop the car. The two follow the sound to a warehouse. Inside they find a male and female Savior talking. The WTF MICHONNE?!?!?! A ball???? After all the times we’ve seen Michonne stealthily creep in and out of places she bumps into a ball and it rolls away letting the bad guys know they are not alone. Great. Now Michonne is in another fight – while healing from the last one!! She really is a good match for Rick, I swear! The male Savior finds Rosita, but boy does she have a surprise for him! The Grenade Launcher! He laughs at her and tells her she knows good and well that she will not use it. WHOOPSIE! But the female Savior gets away in the vehicle, all them damn speakers blasting that crazy ass music to draw in the Walkers. BOOM! Daryl to the rescue! He’s been doing that a lot lately. He ran right into her. ๐Ÿ˜‰ So now we have the 4 Musketeers (Daryl went to Alexandria and picked up Tara to take her to Alexandria) all heading off to ‘end this’.
Of course, Henry would follow Carol! At this point, she needs to come up with a strategy to keep kids away from her! Is this going to be Sam part 2 or Elijah part 2? hopefully neither and he becomes Carl part 2! In real life, the boy that plays Henry is the little brother of the girl that played Sofia.
The Saviors are moved to an outdoor prison inside the walls of the Hilltop. Gregory gets placed in with them, acting like a straight up baby. Suddenly he remembers her name! Long hair Savior goes for one of the Hilltop lady’s gun. Maggie knocks some sense into him. ๐Ÿ˜‰
Carl and new buddy (we learn his name is Saadiq) have near-death experiences in the woods with some Walkers needing redemption. (Did that deer bring up fond memories Carl?) Carl tells him he is taking him to Alexandria even though his father thinks it’s a bad idea.
LOL!!! Carol goes back to see Ezekiel, this time Henry follows. Carol tells Jerry to stand next to Henry, and he does. ๐Ÿ™‚ She finds Ezekiel holding Shiva’s chain. Carol breaks down to Ezekiel, and both end up bawling. Ezekiel tells her she can lead the people. Carol tell him he needs to get back to his role.
Aaron talking about Eric to Enid and Maggie. Maggie holding Gracie. Maggie is becoming a babysitter like her sister used to be. I imagine Maggie will breastfeed Gracie, too. When Aaron is leaving, Enid rushes out and begs him to take her along (they, too, are heading to the Sanctuary). This will certainly be interesting!!
At the end of the episode, we see Jadan puts a big A on the metal shipping crate Rick is naked in. Is that for Alexandria? Or Alpha? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Hmmmm……
