The Saviors are everywhere in the world of “The Walking Dead.” In the trailer for the fifth episode, titled “Go Getters,” Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his gang arrive at the Hilltop colony. It doesn’t look like our survivors will catch a break from this villain no matter what location they move to. Watch AMC’s preview trailer for Season 7, Episode 5 above.
The trailer focuses on Hilltop leader Gregory (Xander Berkeley) dealing with the aftermath of Rick’s (Andrew Lincoln) failure. Gregory has never been the most confident leader, and it’s unclear how the neurotic man will react when the Saviors arrive. At one point in the clip, he appears to be taken hostage by the Savior Simon (Steven Ogg), but later shakes his hand. Will Gregory make some new deal with the terrifying gang? Don’t put it past him to throw Rick and company under the bus.
Fans fearing the whereabouts of Maggie (Lauren Cohan) can lay their concerns to rest. She is shown alive early in the trailer, resting in some type of hospital room at the Hilltop. Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) is spotted as well, looking like she is geared up for a fight.
This episode will be Maggie’s first since the death of her husband Glenn, so expect some emotional fireworks from Cohan. But with Gregory upset over the outcome of his negotiations with her, Maggie may not have time to dwell on her loss. And if she is discovered alive at the Hilltop after Rick pronounced her dead at Alexandria, Negan is sure to start swinging Lucille in someone’s direction.
Elsewhere in the trailer, Enid (Katelyn Nacon) is back to her old habit of scaling the walls of Alexandria. We still don’t know what she was up to with those green balloons from the last episode. It’s dangerous to head outside the safety of the town on her own, but perhaps she has cooked up a plan that benefits the group. Could the balloons be used to signal other friendly communities? Alexandria, Hilltop and The Kingdom will have to find common ground at some point. Otherwise the threat of Negan will grow unstoppable.
