Coming in on the heels of a 90-minute extended episode which saw Negan march around Alexandrian collecting all of his new stuff, The Walking Dead will follow a few characters we haven't seen in a while on Sunday night. Not only are Maggie and Sasha returning to the show for the first time since the Season 7 premiere but Jesus, Gregory, and the Hilltop will be around after an absense which has lasted since late in Season 6.
Heading to the Hilltop is a risky move for Maggie and Sasha. The two characters are part of a group which made a deal with Gregory's group to take out Negan. After failing, Gregory will likely look at them as a threat should Negan find out they colluded.
Let's take a look at who is in danger and who is safe heading into the fourth episode of The Walking Dead's seventh season.
Rick- Safe. He is broken but Negan wants him alive as an example of what he can do to anyone in Alexandria. He will eventually have to step up and put himself on the front lines of battle with Negan's group, but not yet.
Michonne- Danger. Michonne is among the unpopular opinion in Alexandria which wishes to take on the Saviors as soon as possible. She has already attempted to decieve Rick and wants revenge for Glenn and Abraham. At this point, such an attitude puts you in danger.
Carl- Danger. Carl is not happy about watching the Saviors abuse Alexandria and, more specifically, Enid. With a history of poor hasteful choices, Carl is not safe.
Aaron- Safe. Aaron will press on, though his boyfriend may run into trouble along the way.
Maggie- Safe. Maggie will go to a dark place after watching her husband getting beaten to death but the last remaining memeber of the Greene family will evolve and emerge as a leader, especially at the Hilltop.
Eugene- Safe. Level 2 survivor has more work to do.
Sasha- Danger. Having lost everyone in her life, Sasha is broken down and willing to risk it all to take out Negan. First, she has to try and fit in at the Hikltop.
Rosita- Safe. She's a soldier who knows how to adapt. While she may not be as content with aspects of her life as she would wish, she realizes proper avenues of revenge and thinks more rationally than most. Plus, she has the only bullet in Alexandria.
Daryl- Danger. Potential morse code communications with Rick might be caught and out Daryl in danger of Negan's rage.
Dwight- Safe. He has some serious internal struggles going on but his following of Negan keeps him safe for now.
Simon- Danger. The right hand man doesn't exactly pay attention to detail. Foolishness and disrespect do not do well around Negan.
Negan- Safe. He is in complete control of his group and several others. That said, he did a great job of pissing off the one man who can rally enough people to take him down. He will have to enjoy it while it lasts.
Ezekiel- Safe. The King will bring a refreshing bit of lighthearted joy to The Walking Dead starting on Sunday night.
Carol- Safe. She is still a threat to herself but Ezekiel isn't going to let her run too far.
Morgan- Safe. Best equipped to take on threats around him and trained in disciplined fighting, Morgan does what it takes to survive and protect those around him.
Father Gabriel- Safe. Gabriel finally knows he has to fight to survive. There is no immediate threat near him.
Olivia- Danger. She is Negan's radar. That's the worst place to be.
Jesus- Safe. The ninja-like man full of wit has a lot of fight left in him.
Gregory- Danger. There's a certain woman gunning for his job.
Who do you think is in the most danger in Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead?
