Eugene Porter calls out on the radio hoping to get some kind of response, but there are no voices coming in.

Maggie decides to head back to the Hilltop Colony, since it has been two weeks that they have spent together training soldiers and working out a plan. Jesus says that he’ll be staying in Alexandria, and jokes that they won’t need as many fighters from there for the militia since he’ll be there. Rick also tells Maggie to let Andrea know that it is safe to return with Carl and Lydia.

Vincent comes up to Rick to apologize to him, but Rick stops him in the middle of his talk to let him know that he should be thanking Dwight. However, Vincent was also wanting to apologize for the incident involving him and Morton. He tells Rick that he doesn’t deserve to be in Alexandria after what happened. Rick tells him that people who do bad things sometimes aren’t bad people.

Rick leaves Vincent and goes to visit Negan’s cell before stopping by Father Gabriel’s church. Gabriel thanks Rick for everything he’s done and offers to join Alexandria’s military. Rick accepts his offer.

More from Undead Walking

Michonne tells Rick that she’s going out on another run, but he sees through that and knows that she wants to be with Pete on the boat and that she’s just making herself miserable. He tells her that she should go to The Kingdom because they lack leadership and need someone to take control there. Plus, she is well liked and well known there.

With Rick leading Alexandria, Maggie in charge at the Hilltop Colony, and Michonne heading to The Kingdom, Michonne asks Rick if he knows who should be leading The Saviors since Dwight doesn’t want to. And she suggests that Carl might be the man for the job.

Finally, Eugene is still calling out on the radio, but this time, he gets an answer. “Read you loud and clear, Eugene Porter. Come in. Do you read us? Over.”
