#WalkingDead starts with Sasha and Abraham walking into the Alexandria fence and him telling her war stories that she laughs at. He mentions Maggie having a baby and says it’s a brave new world. He says see you tomorrow but she says she’s taking a new watch shift.

She says Eugene is taking over for her with Abraham. He’s not thrilled. He says see you around and she says yeah and walks away. She flashes the peace sign and he offers it back. Abraham is in bed later with Rosita but was thinking about Sasha.

Rosita says she taught Eugene about weapons and he’s teaching her about chemistry. He flirts with her like he wasn’t thinking about another woman.  She throws him a necklace she made for him. Abraham says she’s almost perfect.

Rosita tells him to show her and says shower. He says in a few. He looks at the necklace she made of the broken taillight and thinks more about Sasha. Maggie is putting up tomato stakes that night when Glenn finds her. She says they can grow more tomatoes more going vertical.

Maggie’s stressed she hasn’t seen any growing yet but Glenn says they’ll grow and it will be okay. They see two people running into a basement and they go to investigate. Jesus sits on the stairs at the house and looks at picture.

Carl puts a gun to his head and asks why he’s in the house. Jesus says he’s waiting on his mom and dad to get dressed. He says his name is Jesus. Rick comes out as Abraham, Daryl and Glenn rush in with guns. They all sit down to talk.

They ask how he got out and Jesus says one guard can’t watch two exits then says he checked out the arsenal and it’s good but their provisions are low. He says that’s not a lot of food for 54 people. Jesus says they’re on the same side – that of the living.

He tells him he and Rick could have left him out there but didn’t. He says his job is to find other settlements to trade with. He says he stole their truck because they looked like trouble and is wrong. Jesus says their communities can trade.

He says they have food and other provisions. Maggie asks if he’s already trading with other groups. Jesus tells them their world is about to get bigger. Daryl packs to leave and Denise gives him some food for the trip. He declines it. He takes the cake and says it looks like shit.

Denise says shit is better than road kill. Carl loads gas cans and then Rick comes out and says they have to take the risk to see if it’s true. He also tells him that he was going to tell him about Michonne. Carl says he doesn’t want to go because his missing eye will make a bad impression.

Daryl, Abraham, Rick, Michonne, Glenn and Maggie leave to ride to the new place. Glenn has his hands on Maggie’s belly as she sleeps. Abraham asks if they were trying to get pregnant. Glenn says they talked about it then asks why.

Abraham says given the dangers of the world, he’s shocked anyone would make a baby. Glenn says they’re trying to build something. Abraham says he’s keeping his stuff covered and plans to double up. Michonne and Rick hold hands and Jesus sits behind them starting at them.

Daryl spots a car crash that looks recent. They pull over. Jesus says it’s one of his and runs for the door of the RV. There’s a burned walker trapped under the car and another impaled in the grill. Rick holds a gun on Jesus and says if it’s a trap, this won’t go well.

Jesus says his people aren’t fighters. There are tracks to a nearby building. Daryl mentions the firecracker trick that Jesus pulled on them. They handcuff Jesus and leave him with the others while some go to see if they can find his people.

Maggie is left with a gun on Jesus while the others go into the building. Inside, they proceed with caution. They can hear snarls of walkers. They put a couple down and then they tell the people to come out. They find two who put their hands up then Daryl takes out a couple more walkers.

They find one more who says his friend is in there and hurt from the crash. Abraham creeps through the place listening to snarls. The injured guy comes out and he grabs him and they help him out. They load up Jesus’ people into the RV and drive off.

Harlan introduces himself to Maggie and she introduce Glenn. He says they found medications they needed so he may have found others. Harlan says he’s a doc and Glenn asks about prenatal vitamins. Harlan says he was an obstetrician before and so they hit the jackpot.

Jesus keeps an eye on the injured Freddie who says he thought Abraham was going to kill him, he thought it was finally over and saw his dead wife clear as day. He sounds upset to be alive. The RV gets stuck and Jesus says they’re there. The wheels are stuck in the mud. They all get out.

Jesus says that’s the hilltop. They are at another walled community. At the gates, people have guns out and Jesus tells Cal to stop it. They refuse to give up their guns and Harlan says they saved them. Jesus says he’ll let him keep their guns then says they ran out of ammo months ago.

Jesus says I’m trusting you –  now trust us. Rick looks around and gives a sign. Jesus tells Cal to open the gates. They do and they use a plantation house inside. They see crops growing, a blacksmith, someone feeding chickens and more signs of life.

Harlan tells Maggie to come see him in the medical trailer later and he goes off with the injured Freddie. Jesus says there was a nearby power company and that’s where they got the materials from the walls. He says a lot of people came from FEMA camps and brought the trailers.

Jesus says the house is famous – it’s called Barrington – and was a living history exhibit so locals came because they figured since it was built to survive before modern conveniences, it would still be good. He points out the tall windows at the top and says they can see from miles around.

They head into the huge mansion and Jesus says most have been converted to sleeping space. Gregory comes out and Jesus introduces him. He says he’s the boss and Rick introduces himself but the guy says to go get cleaned up.

Rick says they’re fine. Gregory says go get cleaned up – it’s hard to keep this place clean. Jesus tells them to follow him. Rick whispers to Maggie that she needs to talk to Gregory because he shouldn’t plus she needs to start doing these things.

Daryl and Abraham talk about Michonne and Rick getting busy and he asks Daryl if he’s ready to settle down. Daryl asks if he thinks she’ll settle then walks off. Maggie comes to Gregory’s office and he calls her Natalie and she corrects him firmly.

He says he came to this place once when it was a museum. He asks if her community is this nice then asks if they’re growing crops. He says Jesus told him they had guns. He asks about the infirmary. Maggie asks if he has enough to trade.

Gregory says she can see what he’s built. He says Jesus told them they are short on food and Gregory says they don’t have shit and he’s happy to help but can’t give things away for free. He tells her that people can work there to earn their share.

He says she’d be welcome to come stay there and says he can make it worth her while. She says stop coming on to me and says she knows he needs bullets and medicine. He calls her Natalie again and says good talk.

He says they’re doing fine then asks if they are too. Jesus tells them that Gregory will trade but just wants the best deal. He says they don’t need ammo because the walls will hold. Rick pretty much threatens him if they don’t get food.

Jesus says he’ll go talk to Gregory and asks Rick to give him a few days. Michonne agrees so Rick says yeah. They hear noises and then one of the wall guards says – they’re back. They all go outside. Ethan comes back and he tells Gregory that Tim and Marsha are dead.

They tell him that Negan says the delivery wasn’t enough so they kept Craig. Then Ethan says he has to deliver a message from Negan and stabs Gregory coming. The group is attacked by the three that came back from Negan.

Daryl snaps the guy’s arm that’s strangling Abraham. Ethan is choking Rick and when Michonne threatens him, Rick stabs him in the neck. Rick gets up covered in blood and looks at everyone and says – what.

A woman runs up and punches Rick and Michonne clothes lines her. Some guys come at them with sharp instruments and tell Rick to throw down the gun. He says no. Jesus tells everyone to calm down. The locals go check Gregory.

Daryl asks if Abraham is okay and he laughs and says he’s better than all right. A woman cries over Ethan’s body as Maggie watches. Jesus comes and says Gregory will live. Rick asks about Negan and who he is. Jesus says Negan is head of the Saviors.

He says they came as soon as they walls went up and made demands then beat a 16 year old boy to death in front of them and told them they needed to understand. Jesus says Greg isn’t the leader he would have chosen and made the deal with the Saviors. They get half of everything.

He says in return they don’t attack kill them. Daryl asks why not kill them and Rick asks how many does Negan have. Jesus says they’ve seen groups as big as 20. Daryl says the guy is just a boogey man. Abraham says they took out some of Negan’s guys.

Daryl says they’ll take out Negan if they hook them up with food, medicine and a cow. Rick says they have no trouble with confrontation. Jesus says he’ll take it to Gregory. Rick and Michonne talk as they watch the locals burn a couple of bodies.

Rick says they have food and we have skills. Maggie says it will cost them something. Jesus comes out and says Gregory wants to talk to Maggie only when Rick steps forward. Rick tells her Deanna was right to choose her and Jesus tells Maggie that Greg can be a prick. She says she knows.

Maggie goes to see Gregory who is bedridden. She says he’s lucky they were there. Greg asks how they know they can accomplish what they’re saying they can do. Maggie says give us supplies and we’ll take care of the Saviors permanently.

Greg says before she didn’t like the idea of working for them and now is offering to do this. Maggie says they are willing to work for food. Greg says he’ll get them supplies and will talk to Jesus about the arrangements.

Greg says this is fun and exciting. Maggie stares at him and says half of what you have. She says Negan is expecting more and more from them. She says pretty soon they won’t have anything left, then what. She says no ammo, no fighters, and he’s a dead man.

Maggie says half of all of it right now or no deal. Maggie says she has leverage. Gregory says congratulations, it’s a deal. He asks if she wants a kidney or anything else. Maggie says she wants one more thing.

Later, they pack up the RV and Jesus says even Negan didn’t get this much up front. They bring out the guy who makes deliveries and says we need information and you need to come. The guy thinks then says yeah.

They pack up all the stuff and Jesus asks if he can come along. He says Michonne still has his knives. Rick asks Michonne if she’s up for this and she says it’s going to be a fight. Rick says we’ll win because we have to. She agrees and gets into the RV.

Rick looks around the place. Maggie is getting an ultrasound from the OB and she and Glenn hold hands while they listen to their baby’s heartbeat and see the little pod they’re growing. Later they show Michonne a pic from the ultrasound. She hands it to Daryl who smiles. Abraham checks it out too and smiles at Glenn.
