Alexandria used to be a pretty strong community. However, after dealing with the Wolves and then falling under Negan’s control the community is depleted. The people in Alexandria were never very strong fighters. A lot of them didn’t make it. And now all their weapons are gone.
But what they do have is Rick and the Atlanta survivors. Rick, Carl, Daryl, Michonne and the others are exceptional fighters. Daryl has a vast skill set that can help the war effort in many ways. He hasn’t actually used many of those skills in the last season but he’s still got them.
Rick and Michonne are good strategists. Rick and Michonne are going to be vital to creating a plan of attack against the Saviors. Since the colonists aren’t going to be able to outnumber the Saviors even if they all fight together good strategy is going to be essential to winning.
Rick made a huge mistake attacking the Saviors outpost without gathering any intelligence about it first. He won’t make that mistake again. This time he’s going to be careful and thorough. None of the communities will go up against Negan and the Saviors until Rick is sure they have what they need to win.
Alexandria might also be able to continue to make bullets. Rosita knows where the workshop is. If Eugene wrote down the formula or the others can figure it out they can continue making bullets.
Alexandria’s contributions to the fight:
- Battle planning
- Battle and fight training
- Weapons knowledge
