The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 5 Recap: Tension at Hilltop

by at .

Have you been missing Maggie?

If so, then you were in for a treat on The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 5 as we got to see just how fractured leadership was at the Hilltop Colony. 

If you watch The Walking Dead online, you'll know that Maggie and Sasha made a break for the colony after Negan murdered both Abraham and Glen on The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 1

Jesus Is Fearing for the Hilltop Colony on The Walking Dead

It's definitely not scenes you could easily forget, but catching up with the characters was pretty intriguing.

Maggie got some much-needed confirmation that her pregnancy was going as planned. 

However, she was told to rest up for a few days to get over the emotional trauma she was put threw watching her baby daddy being brutally murdered. 

When she and Sasha went to pay their respects to their fallen friends, Gregory showed up and made it clear he wanted Maggie out of the colony because he didn't want to have any more dealings with the Alexandria crowd. 

This was a bit rich when you consider the fact that the Alexandria group only went to war with the saviors to save Gregory's people.

Sasha and Maggie were quick to point this out, but he didn't give a damn. 

He revealed that Maggie could stay the night, but she would be leaving first thing in the morning.

So much for the hospitality he gave her when she was wheeling and dealing with him last year. 

Gregory was no doubt terrified at the prospect of the Saviors showing up and attacking his people.

There's no telling what Negan would do if he got wind of Gregory's involvement. 

Maggie on The Walking Dead

That night, Maggie and Sasha were shocked to the core when the gates to the colony were knocked down and a car was in the courtyard with loud music.

This was drawing all of the walkers into the colony and making things very difficult. 

Sasha pleaded with Maggie to stay in the trailer while she went off on her own to save them.

Pretty much as soon as Sasha made her escape from the trailer, Maggie was out in the open and barking orders at people. 

Even though she was ill, she knew what she had to do in order to save everyone. She got in a tractor and ran over the car until the music stopped playing. It really was the best course of action and it proved she's a natural leader. 

The next morning, Jesus, Maggie and Sasha pled their case to Gregory to allow them to stay, but they were stopped in their tracks by the arrival of the Saviors. 

Maggie and Sasha were put in hiding to avoid being murdered.

Simon and the group of the saviors went into the house and immediately started laying down the law.

Gregory was trying every trick in the book in order to get them away. 

He offered them everything he could, but he lost all of his alcohol and art.

It was a thrilling turn of events, but it was needed to show that absolutely no group is safe from the wrath of the Saviors.

After the meeting, Maggie went to Gregory to tell him she would not be leaving and that he was to quit calling her names.

He obviously felt defeated after losing most of his inventory and looking pretty stupid. 

Maggie was then shocked to the core when Enid showed up. Enid hitched a ride with Carl and the two of them seemed to get a lot closer. 

It would be such a shame if they never got the chance to meet up again.

Couples just don't seem to have a long shelf life on this show.

Right now, Carl is on his way to Negan's base with Jesus, but what is their master plan?

The episode was pretty solid overall, but there were some minor issues.

Simon was a little too nice to Gregory compared to the way Negan would have acted. 

The show seems to be taking some of the characters in interesting directions, but who will die next?

There's always death on this show and we have went a few weeks without it. 

Could we be in for another massacre?
