The Walking Dead continues as we learn more about the communities banding together to fight. Here’s your synopsis of “The Damned.”

Well, Rick let the cat out of the bag in a big way, and we’re not talking about Shiva. With his attack on the Sanctuary in the season premiere Rick announced in no uncertain terms that the Alexandrians, the Hilltoppers and the Kingdom will not go gentle into that good night (to roughly quote Dylan Thomas).

With the attack on the Sanctuary there is no mistaking that the battle has begun and with the Walkers descending upon Negan’s lair, unimaginable damage will be inflicted when that herd arrives. Will the Saviors be able to defend themselves and prepare for battle at the same time? The challenge, obviously, is dealing with the loss of their lookouts. They can’t just put people back in those spots because they’ll be picked off again, so the Saviors will need a whole new strategy.

Here’s the official synopsis of “The Damned” from AMC:

“The plan involving Alexandrians, Kingdommers and Hilltoppers unfolds. As Rick continues to fight, he encounters a familiar face.”

Now that Rick managed to strike first, it’s time to see what else he has planned. How will the communities continue to work together to defeat their common enemy, and will they see support from anyone else? We haven’t seen Jadis and the Scavengers yet but we know they aren’t loyal to anyone at this point, and we also haven’t heard from Oceanside at all. It’s time to learn more about the plan and how it will unfold.

We also don’t know what’s happening with Negan and Father Gabriel. Hopefully that’s going, er, well.

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9pm on AMC.
