Hello, danger! “The Walking Dead” was action packed Sunday night as Rick (Andrew Lincoln) led a group of Alexandria survivors into the Saviors’ layer to eliminate them as a threat. And while they initially believed their attack to be a success, they later discovered that the Saviors had captured Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Carol (Melissa McBride). So, what comes next?
Episode 13, titled “The Same Boat,” will find Rick and the others quickly discovering that there is a “larger world with new dangers and new opportunities.” Fans of “The Walking Dead” comic books can assume that the “new dangers” refers to villain Negan — but what about the “new opportunities”? Based on videos for the upcoming installment, it doesn’t look like the people who captured Maggie and Carol are interested in striking up a friendship with the good folks at Alexandria.
The first sneak peek video from the episode replays Rick’s walkie-talkie exchange but from the perspective of the woman on the other end of the radio. She’s with a small group consisting of two other women and one man. They’re holding Maggie and Carol by gunpoint, and are not happy to see that Rick’s group apprehended their guy, Primo.
Meanwhile, the promo video for episode 13 shows Rick attempting to make a deal with a red-haired woman to free Maggie and Carol. However, the deal is a no go. The woman orders her people to cover the heads of their prisoners and lead them away. But where are they going? And what will they do to them?
“You’re wondering if there is a way out of this,” the woman says to Maggie and Carol. “There isn’t. Not unless I say so.”
“Walking Dead” viewers will get to see how this all plays out when episode 13 of Season 6 airs on AMC on Sunday, March 13 at 9 p.m. EST.
