We're about to see an all-out war
After this run-in with the Saviors, Rick and the others vowed to never be caught by surprise again. If their enemies are still out there, still vengeful, and if a simple supply run can spell doom for one of our heroes, something has to be done. The war began with Denise's death. Carol, Rick, Daryl, and probably any other well-trained member of the Alexandria safe zone piled into a caravan and hit the road, presumably in pursuit of the real Negan and the Savior army's remaining, inestimable soldiers. Given the faction's seemingly inexhaustible resources, there’s no telling how deep they run. I’m starting to suspect the next battles won’t work out quite so favorably as they have so far. Let’s just hope that Rick doesn’t underestimate the challenge ahead.
