If there’s one thing we know about Maggie, it’s that she’s a survivor — and that doesn’t change on this week’s episode of The Walking Dead.
Sunday’s episode, titled “Go Getters,” picks up at the Hilltop, where Maggie and Sasha bury Glenn and Abraham — and attempt to move on from their traumatic deaths.
But what about Maggie and Glenn’s baby? Find out what happens to Maggie’s unborn child (plus four other revelations) below:
1. Maggie’s Baby Will Be OK… If She Learns to Take Doctor’s Orders
We can all breathe a sigh of relief; Maggie won’t be losing another family member anytime soon — as long as she listens to Dr. Carson’s orders. But Maggie, who is basically ordered to bed rest, doesn’t find that so easy. (Damn it, Maggie!) Feeling helpless after Glenn’s death, Maggie just can’t keep off her feet, and the Saviors’ little games don’t make it any easier.
2. The Saviors Aren’t Done With Hilltop Yet
While tonight’s episode offered a brief break from Negan, his reign of terror is still very much going strong, as the Saviors make not one, but two terrifying visits to Hilltop. The Saviors’ first is less of a house call and more of an ambush, as they manage to open Hilltop’s gates in the middle of the night, and plant a locked car with blaring music inside. Though Sasha and Jesus go on the attack trying to stop the intrusion of walkers and turn off the blasting radio that’s calling them in, it’s Maggie who ultimately saves the day, flawlessly reversing a giant tractor over a swarm of walkers, and crushing Negan’s noisy gift. (Sidenote: this would’ve been totally badass had she not been defying doctor’s orders — Damn it, Maggie!).
The Saviors’ second visit is a little more expected, as they arrive the next morning with a motorcade of trucks to take their “half” of the Hilltop’s sustenance and supplies… which brings us to our next point:
3. Gregory Is Still a D**k
He’s no Negan, but Gregory is still a Grade A douche. Though he still can’t seem to remember their names, Gregory has no problem ordering Sasha and Maggie, clearly in need of medical care, to leave Hilltop, all in the name of “plausible deniability.” Despite the pair’s pleas, Gregory can’t see past their group’s supposed betrayal for failing to kill Negan — and tries to give the two over to Negan’s right-hand man, Simon, when the Saviors come to collect. A little quick thinking by Jesus ultimately saves Sasha and Maggie, but not without one less annoying Gregory monologue.
4. Carl and Enid Find Love in a Hopeless Place
With all Maggie and Sasha’s suffering, we almost forgot about TWD’s little splash of young love — in the form of Carl and Enid’s absolutely adorable zombie apocalypse date. After declaring that he’s “not saving” Enid anymore, Carl follows his teenage love on her trek to find Maggie, where they roller skate down an abandoned road, hold hands, talk about killing Negan, and — oh yeah — have their first kiss! But like all things on The Walking Dead, love is fleeting, as the two part ways when they reach Hilltop — Enid going to reunite with Maggie, and Carl sneaking in the back of one of the Saviors’ trucks to find Negan and exact his revenge.
5. Maggie’s a Survivor
“This is our home now, so you’ll learn to call me by my name,” Maggie says after Gregory tries to give her and Sasha up to the Saviors (and steals the pocket watch recovered from Glenn’s body). “Not Marcia, not Dear, not Honey. Maggie. Maggie Rhee,” she snaps, delivering a killer punch to the center of Gregory’s face and probably further rupturing her uterus. (Damn it, Maggie!) Ultimately, however, facing pregnancy complications and the devastation of Glenn’s death makes Maggie stronger, able to move on and let go.
“We don’t need anything to remember him by,” Maggie explains as she later gives Glenn’s pocket watch to Enid. “We have us.”
