Rick’s in quite a pickle after his trip to visit Jadis. For once, this is a mess of his own doing and I can’t wait to see how he gets out of this predicament.
Through almost eight and a half seasons on The Walking Dead, Rick has usually been the one to say “I told you so,” when people stop following the plan and wind up in trouble. Now he’s the one in trouble, locked inside a storage unit, naked, with Jadis prancing around in his boots. Quite the pickle there, Rick. Now what?
Everything has been going according to plan in Rick’s attack against the Saviors. The ambush and subsequent slaughter of the Kingdommers was a major – and unfortunate – setback, but everything has been going well. Rick walked into the junkyard like he had an army at the gate and ended up locked in a storage unit with no clothes on. Somehow I don’t think this was part of Rick’s plan.
Daryl seemed to know that Rick was going to see Jadis, so he probably knows that if Rick doesn’t come back by a certain point then he should go after him. But what will happen if resources need to be diverted in order to rescue Rick? The Scavengers have weapons, after all. Sure, it would be helpful for the group to confiscate their weapons but is it worth focusing resources on the Heapsters when they should focus all of their attention on the Saviors?
I’d love to know what Rick thought would happen here. He walked into the junk yard and faced off against monosyllabic Jadis, and then he was stripped naked and tossed into a storage unit. Surely he saw that coming. (Well, perhaps not being stripped naked, but being captured)

Or maybe this was part of the plan. It was a carefully calculated plan to make Jadis think she won a battle, and in reality Daryl is rallying the troops to not only rescue Rick but reclaim the weapons they bartered in their original deal. I have to think there’s more to this. There has to be.
What do you think? Did Rick mess up here, or is this all part of the plan?
