If you don’t follow the “Walking Dead” comics, rest assured that Jesus has come in peace! Better yet, Jesus becomes a good friend of Rick’s. But all in good time. Right now, they have to get through a few trust issues first. Our favorite spoiler source, the Spoiling Dead Fans, have revealed spoiler details to Sunday’s episode, “Knots Unite.” Read no further if you don’t want any spoilers!
Jesus needs to talk to Rick, and like we saw in last week’s episode, he doesn’t care if Rick is naked in bed. Jesus tells Rick about the Hilltop Colony and what he hopes to do. Jesus is very smart and wants to work something out between Alexandria and Hilltop, a neighboring deal, if you will. Jesus points out that Alexandria is low on food, something Hilltop is rich of, but the Hilltop Colony is heavily lacking weapons, something Alexandria has plenty of. You get the point.
Rick, Michonne, Glenn, Maggie, Daryl, and Abraham go with Jesus to the Hilltop Colony to check it out. They meet a few people along the way, including, very conveniently, a gynecologist for Maggie.
The Grimes’ gang arrives to Hilltop and meet the leader there, Gregory. But unfortunately, unlike Jesus, Gregory is arrogant, rude, and unwilling to work a deal with the crew. If they want food, they’ll have to work for it, Gregory tells them. He also annoyingly calls Maggie “Natalie.”
Negan will be mentioned! While Team Rick is still at Hilltop, more members of their group will arrive, but not all of them. When asked where the rest are, the survivors say they were killed by Negan. A man named Ethan stabs Gregory, this is Negan’s message to them. Rick kills him. Gregory is injured, but still alive. Jesus then tells Rick about another community, the Saviors. These guys demand supplies from the Hilltop in exchange for their safety.
Maggie tells Gregory that her group knows how to handle guys like the Saviors, something we all know. Except this time, they don’t know what they’re getting themselves into. Gregory has no choice but to agree to Maggie’s terms – Team Rick will handle the Saviors in exchange for half of Hilltop’s food. Maggie also demands an ultrasound. The equipment for that is also conveniently located at the Hilltop Colony.
Not many Richonne moments. Brief hand holding, Carl knows and he’s fine with it. Carol, Morgan, Tara, Eugene, Gabriel, and the rest are not seen.
What do you think “Walking Dead” fans? Excited to meet new face (that will probably not be around for long)? “Knots Untie” will also see Abraham trying to decide if he wants to settle down and start a family with Rosita or Sasha. In the end, he comes to the conclusion that a family is not right for him.
“The Walking Dead” airs Sunday nights on AMC.
