Maggie and Carol are arguing over whether she should be joined by Maggie in the Negan fight. Carol shoots at a guy who approaches them, but only in the arm. Subsequently, three more girls come, demanding their weapons and pointing guns at them. We see the walkie-talkie exchange between Rick and them. Rick offers to trade one of the men of Negan for them, but the leader of the little group, Paula, is not having this two-for-one deal.
Rick tells his hostage he’s no allies so he should begin speaking left. The guy promises to be Negan, and that is enough for Rick to shoot at him in the head.
