Full Recap

In a flashback, Jadis plays possum while Simon and the Saviors massacre her people at the Heaps.

After the Saviors leave, Jadis strips off her bloodied clothing down to her nightgown.

In the present, she weeps in her room. Then she rouses herself, packs a suitcase and grabs a familiar baseball bat. She unlocks the container where Negan is tied to a dolly and drags him out.

At Hilltop, Ezekiel asks Carol to help search for Henry, but she declines. Ezekiel realizes that Carol believes Henry is dead.

Tara tells Daryl that her arrow wound did not infect her. She deduces that Dwight shot her with a clean arrow and abandons her immediate quest to kill him.

Michonne urges Rick to confront his emotions and read the letter that Carl wrote to him.

Morgan tells Carol that he’s going to look for Henry. Carol joins him.

Daryl works on his motorcycle and spots a knife with dried blood, which sparks an idea.

In Maggie’s office, Dianne reports that they don’t have enough ammo to fend off another big attack. Presuming the Saviors are low on ammo themselves, Daryl suggests they fight them hand-to-hand. Rosita points out that Eugene is probably making ammunition for the Saviors.

Jadis checks her watch and prepares to burn Lucille in a wheelbarrow. Negan apologizes for the massacre and insists that he wasn’t responsible. Jadis swings Lucille at him, stopping just short of his face.

Morgan sees Henry in the woods and runs after him, only to find “Henry” is only a hallucination. Carol admits she accompanied Morgan to keep an eye on him, not to look for Henry. Morgan spots a trail left by the escaped Savior prisoners.

Rick watches Judith play. He stares at Carl’s hat and gets up.

Rick asks Alden where he thinks the Savior escapees might take shelter. Alden suggests Rick check out a nearby dive bar, but implores Rick to bring the Saviors back to Hilltop instead of slaughtering them.

Jadis’s watch beeps. She leaves Negan alone for a moment and returns with a walker tied to a cart. Negan fires at her with a gun he managed to get hold of, and threatens to burn a pile of sentimental photos with a flare that he found in her bag.

Morgan and Carol spot a herd crossing the road. A walker approaches them with Henry’s fighting stick rammed through its gut. Carol goes to search for Henry while Morgan pursues the Savior escapees.

Jadis begs Negan not to burn her photos. Negan explains that Lucille is all he has left of his wife, whom he named the bat after. Jadis’s watch beeps again. She rams the walker into Negan and wrestles the flare away. To her dismay, the flare falls in a puddle of water and the flame is snuffed. A helicopter appears overhead. She tries to hail it to no avail. She is about to burn Lucille when Negan finally dissuades her. He vows to settle things with the perpetrator of the massacre.

Rick catches up with Morgan in the woods. Morgan menaces Rick with his fighting stick, momentarily forgetting who Rick is. “I’m not right,” he says as he lowers his weapon. Rick proposes they kill the Saviors together.

Rick and Morgan find a severed arm and foot with visible walker bites. Someone knocks Rick out cold.

Rick comes to and finds himself bound next to Morgan in an abandoned dive bar. Jared and the Savior escapees deliberate about what to do with the Saviors who have fallen sick. Jared insists they ditch the dying Saviors and deliver Rick to Negan. Rick gives his word that he will not harm them if they return to Hilltop. A herd floods into the bar, and the living are quickly outnumbered. A Savior cuts Rick and Morgan loose so they can help take down the herd. Rick and Morgan kill the walkers and, when the moment is right, methodically mow down the Saviors.

Morgan locks Jared behind a gate and watches him get devoured.

A dying Savior reminds Rick that he had given his word not to harm them. Rick says he lied and kills the Savior.

Rick asks Morgan why he decided to save him back in Atlanta when they were strangers. Morgan says it was because his son was with him.

Negan walks free at the junkyard and invites Jadis to join the Saviors. She refuses.

Carol walks through the woods at night and hears Henry pleading for help. Finding him surrounded by walkers, she slaughters them all.

They return to Hilltop. Henry reunites with Ezekiel.

Carol tells Ezekiel that she lost herself after her daughter died, but that she found a better version of herself as a part of Rick’s group.

Rick and Morgan return to Hilltop covered in blood. Morgan tells Henry that he killed the man who killed his brother.

Morgan sits alone and weeps.

Jadis returns to her room and lies in bed.

Negan drives toward the Sanctuary and spots someone on the road. He pulls over and tells the person to get in.

Negan arrives at the Sanctuary and instructs the guards to keep his arrival a secret.

Daryl and Rosita survey Eugene’s bullet factory through binoculars. Rosita proposes that they kill the bullet makers.

Rick braces himself and reads Carl’s letter.
