When Jesus brings the Saviors prisoners to the Hilltop, it falls on Maggie to decide the fate of these captives.
Not only do the prisoners have to be guarded night and day, but they’ll need food to survive.
That is if they will survive at all.
As Lauren Cohan explains in a new behind-the-scenes video, every option is on the table, even murder.
“In this world, everyone has the capacity to enact great evil,” she says.
Maggie is okay with her own immorality if it means protecting her own, but a disagreement with Jesus reminds her of her compassionate side.
“The prisoners of war force Maggie to take stock of who she is versus what needs to be done,” explains Cohan.
And a moment alone with Hershel’s pocket watch offers the guidance she’s looking for and helps her figure out another way.
