This week The Walking Dead checks in with our Hilltop gang. Maggie, Sasha, and Enid are now joined by Daryl and Rosita. The Hilltop doesn’t have a lot going on. The biggest story actually happens away from the walled town, as Sasha and Rosita plan their daring attack on Negan.
It was another weak episode but we did have a theme of sorts: forgiveness, understanding, and absolution for two pairs of characters.
In this week’s episode of The Walking Dead, we continue our trek around the wider world of the zombie post-apocalypse. It’s time to check in with the Hilltop, Alexandria’s mostly friendly neighbors, whom we met last season.
Maggie and Sasha have finally arrived after the terrifying attack Negan unleashed in the premiere. Maggie’s given a clean bill of health from their resident doctor, leaving her and Sasha to come to terms with and grieve for their losses. But when they try to stay in the Hilltop permanently, they’re met with a grim reminder of Negan’s influence.
