The people from The Kingdom were on a roll. They were attacking outposts and clearing them out with great efficiency, not losing a single member of their squad thanks to great strategy and teamwork.

However, a group of Negan’s soldiers was able to escape the outpost thanks to a grenade that disoriented King Ezekiel, Carol, Jerry, and others thrown by Nelson, a lower-level working at the outpost.

Nelson’s escape didn’t go too well. While he was able to escape into the woods, he wasn’t able to mount a successful getaway after being spotted by Ezekiel trying to make his way through a clearing.

As the group watched Negan’s soldier from a distance, Shiva arrived on the scene to take care of business. She clamped her jaws around Nelson’s head, thrashing and finally killing him in a violent fashion.
