'The Walking Dead' Episode 8x06 Preview Released

Spoilers for The Walking Dead 8x05.

AMC has released the preview for The Walking Dead 8x06, "The King, The Widow, And Rick."


With things looking up for Rick and the group, an argument breaks out at the Hilltop; the consequences of the decision are life versus death.

The Walking Dead 8x05 was full of surprises. Negan and Father Gabriel finally made their return, and Negan made a startling admission about his backstory. There could be a mole in Rick's alliance, the Saviors are one step closer to singling out the traitor in their ranks, Negan's right hand man Simon might be undermining the Saviors, Father Gabriel — now a prisoner of the Saviors — might be dying from some kind of fever, there's a helicopter making the rounds over Virginia, and Rick and Daryl got into a controversial fist fight over Daryl's morally ugly plan of attack.

8x06 will see Rick return to the Scavengers, with Rick wanting the same thing he wanted the first time they met: a deal. Rick's ultimatum is simple. Join us in the fight against the Saviors or be destroyed. The last time we saw the junkyard gang in 7x16, Alexandria had teamed up with Jadis and her people to launch a surprise attack on Negan — a plan that was thwarted when the Scavengers double crossed the Alexandrians, revealing themselves to be aligned with the Saviors.

One of Jadis' people beat Michonne half to death and nearly killed her, so it seems unwise for Rick to try to team with them again — especially alone — but as Rick told Daryl in 8x05, there's a plan in place and the alliance needs to stick to it. Meanwhile, back at the Hilltop, Maggie is dealing with Jesus' controversial decision to bring captured Saviors to the peaceful farming colony while Carl, Michonne and Rosita will finally get back into the action after not being seen since 8x01 on October 22.

The Walking Dead 8x06 airs next Sunday at 9/8c on AMC.
