*Finishing off from last issue,Mark is carried away from the foundry after his punishment off Negan.Amber calls after him but is told not to by Dwight as others will see and sell her out to Negan.Dwights ex calls after him but he calls her a bitch and tells her to shut up before walking away.
*Carl asks Negan if he can wrap his eye wound back up but Negan refuses,saying that he isnt done with Carl yet and dide he really think Negan would let him off for a song? Negan knows Carl is a smart kid and asks him wether he should just kill him or iron his face off.Carl suggests that Negan should just jump out the window and save him the trouble of doing it.
*Negan bursts out laughing to this,telling Carl that this is the boy who impressed him so much and that he has a hard time thinking of any punishment that would be worse than what has already Carl has already endured,but he will think of something....
*Jesus fights some zombies and hotwires a car back to Alexandria.Near Alexandria,Rick,Michonne,Andrea and Nicholas are fighting a huge group of zombies in the search for Carl.Rick doesnt want to give up but in the end is convinced to try again tomorrow.
*Spencer looks through the gates of the community,and asks a survivor named Erin what they are doing out there.She says that even though she has only ever said to things to Rick he seems to have their best interests in mind and Rick shouldnt be expected to do nothing while his son is missing.
*Spencer seems to think Carls disapearance is a distraction to the community at a time when they dont need it to which Erin replies Spencer seems more critical of Rick since he stole his girlfriend (Andrea).Spencer says she never was.Erin leaves,telling Spencer he is a good man and not to let all this drive him crazy.
*Aaron and Eric have an arguement over wether to leave the Safe Zone or not.Eric doesnt think its as safe anymore since the arrival of Negan and the Saviours and that they should maybe be preapred to go at short notice if neccesary.Aaron wants to stay,he knows the safezone is special and they can get through this.Rick will see them good.They hugg and make up.
*Rick and the others arrive home late and go to theirs beds for a well deserved sleep.Rick is awoken in the dark by Jesus at the foot of his bed.He and Rick go for a talk where Jesus explains he knows where Negan and his men are hiding,Rick then tells him about Carls disapearance.Jesus explains as he was escaping he heard an automatic weapon fire,Rick tells him Abrahams machine Gun is missing.Jesus offers to take him there in the morning but Rick wants to go now.
*Rick,Andrea,Michonne and Jesus leave in the van for Negans stronghold.Jesus explains that they have a "killing zone" of zombies as a defensive measure that are either chained up or inpaled into the ground.Hes says getting in could be a problem but Rick says he knows a way (hint,guts!).
*Rick eventually decides he will just knock,much to the shock of the others.Rick explains that negan wants thm submissive and working for him,not going to war.It will be enough of a fuck you to show him that Team Grimes know where he lives and it might catch him off balance enough to give up Carl.
*On their way to the Saviours compound they run across Negan and his men in a truck,who explains they were heading to Alexandria and it was mighty conveniant to meet Rick and crew.Rick replies that they were headed to see him actually.Negan mentions that its strange that they were heading in the right direction but Rick cuts him off,asking where Carl is?
*Negan says that thats the reason he was heading over,if he can belive it and that he cant wait for Rick to see what he's done to his little boy

Rick tells him Abrahams machine Gun is missing.Jesus offers to take him there in the morning but Rick wants to go now.
Rick, Andrea, Michonne and Jesus leave in the van for Negans stronghold.
Fresh off of a patrol, probably about ready to hit the sack, then Rick pounds on their doors telling them he wants to roll to get Carl NOW, and I bet the only thing that happened was Andrea grabbed her long gun and Michonne grabbed her sword.
Loyalty. Selfless service.
THIS is why Andrea and Michonne are such awesome characters.

Oof. Nervous for next month indeed. That was a good issue though a lot of great back & forth between Alexandria's citizens. Who was the lady talking to Spencer? I don't remember her and she definitely didn't leave a name.
She said her name was Erin. I liked that they focused a lot on some of the Alexandria characters. We saw Spencer/Erin, Nicholas being devoted to Rick, and Aaron/Eric. With Aaron forcing Eric to stay in Alexandria, I think Eric will die sometime soon, leaving Aaron to cope with the death of his partner. This could provide some nice character development for Aaron.
Can't wait for next issue!!! February 13th seems so far away....

Still, great issue again, as usual. Nice to see more from the Alexandrians, especially Aaron and Eric who don't have nearly enough to do, considering they were the first people from the town to be introduced.

Anybody else disappointed that Negan didn't throw Carl out a window?
