This article contains spoilers for Season 7, Episode 5 of The Walking Dead, "Go Getters."
Enter Maggie, ultimate badass: if there's any hope left on the horizon, she's got to be it.
The Walking Dead's seventh-season premiere last month found the fan-favorite heroine abused, humiliated, and utterly traumatized, forced to watch helplessly as her husband, Glenn, was beaten to death in cold blood by the new Big Bad. Left half-dead, pregnant, and in serious need of medical attention, she seemed on the verge of being the episode's third victim. (In fact, she was in such dire shape that Negan himself assumed she never made it, as he so cruelly mentioned last week.)
But rather than admit defeat — and unlike everybody around her -- she got back up, dusted herself off, and took the first steps toward revenge. Now she's holing up at the Hilltop, still very pregnant, still in poor health. That's not stopping her: as tonight's episode resoundingly proved, the future is Maggie Greene.
