This week on The Walking Dead, Negan comes to Alexandria to collect.
Rick’s last encounter with Negan was disastrous. It ended with Abraham and Glen’s death, and with Rick swearing obedience to him and The Saviors. Since then we have not yet seen how Rick is adjusting to the New World, we get to see this week how everything is working with Negan’s first visit to Alexandria.
The Saviors come in full force to come and take what they deem is theirs. Rick has prepared his group for the inevitable, and most are now hip to the program. Father Gabriel even tries to greet Negan with a smile, as a pastor would. However, Carl is very much anti-Negan.
Olivia, responsible for all of the inventory comes under threat when a few guns are unaccounted for when Negan comes to collect all of them. Rick even has to force the group to come to the church for a town hall meeting to find out where the missing guns are. Almost all of the town is forced to observe their once fearless leader appear before them, defanged and at the Mercy of Negan.
Once the guns are found, Negan reminds the group that they can do great things when their lives are threatened. Negan completely establishes his dominance to the Alexandrians throughout the episode and leaves every demoralized.
Before we can get to that next week, here are a few of the top moments of the episode.
