The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 9 Recap: The Path to War

by at .

Thankfully, it seems like The Walking Dead is finally returning to the show we all fell in love with in the first place. 

On The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 9, Rick and the group tried to find a way to take down the Saviors. 

When the episode got underway, Gabriel stole supplies and made off in a car from Alexandria. No one else seemed to know about his plan, but it seemed like he disappeared off the face of the earth. 

We then cut to the group trying to get Gregory to agree to go to war with the Saviors, but all he seemed to care about was getting Rick and his group out of the way. 

Jesus tried to sway Gregory, but he did not seem to care about it and declined. 

When the group tried to assess what was the best course of action, Enid appeared with a group from Hilltop. That group decided it was in their best interests to go to war with the Saviors. 

Like Rick, they knew the day was coming in which they would all be picked off. Rick and his group were ecstatic, but they knew they still did not have the numbers.

Jesus took them to meet Ezekiel, who was skeptical of what they were doing there. In their quest, they also met up with Morgan, who seemed to be fitting in a little too well with this new group. 

Ezekiel came up with a lot of objections, but Rick and his people managed to handle them pretty well. Ezekiel revealed he needed some time to weigh up the offer before making a definite decision about it. 

While that went down, Benjamin went hunting and came across Carol. The pair bonded, with him giving Carol some food. She told him not to make so much noise while walking or he would be killed. 

The next morning,  Ezekiel said that he would not be taking them up on their deal. He felt like there were just too many risks to take the offer seriously.

He did, however, offer a place for Daryl to lay low. Daryl was not on board, but Rick urged him to stay and talk Ezekiel around. 

When the group left, they found explosives on the highway that the Saviors had left to kill a team of walkers, who were headed their way.

Rosita managed to take some of the explosives from a steel bar, while Rick and Michonne joined forces to dispatch of some of the walkers. 

The steel bar came in handy as they decapitated a few thousand of them. Seriously, there were a lot of walkers.

When the group got into the car, some of the explosives Rosita left exploded on the remaining walkers. The group returned to Alexandria.

Simon was waiting for them and turned the place upside down, looking for Daryl. He told Rick he would be killing him if he showed up and left. 

Rick found Gabriel's bible and found some tips in it to find him. The group followed the trail and were cornered by a group that did not look like the Saviors. 

Considering Rick let out a huge smile, it looks like this is a group that will help in the war. 

What did you think of all the drama?
