AMC is bringing fans of The Walking Dead some great new spinoffs; the first for 2023 is The Walking Dead: Dead City. This series is receiving rave reviews so far, and each episode continues to impress. As with any new series, a slew of new characters are introduced alongside fan favorites Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). One group they recently encountered, the Tribespeople, is a group of native New Yorkers who also have beef with The Croat (Željko Ivanek).
This episode contains spoilers for The Walking Dead: Dead City episode 3, “People Are a Resource.”
In episode 2, “Who’s There,” Maggie and Negan follow “the pigeon lady,” Esther, who leads them to the Tribespeople group. There is, of course, no trust between them, and Maggie’s obvious lie doesn’t help matters. Maggie & Negan get a good look at their base location before they put them in a cell, which is a dank bathroom. The Croat’s Burazi find the site, and the Tribespeople scramble to escape—Negan volunteers to run a distraction so they can escape.
Negan’s sacrifice helps the bond with the group, and they allow Maggie and Negan into their group. In episode 3, the group finds out about Negan’s past with The Croat and begins questioning his loyalties.
It appears the Tribespeople will aid Maggie and Negan in their quest to take down The Croat and rescue Hershel.
