Rosita yells out the line “I believe in Rick Grimes,” which should away any comic reader giddy.
Rosita starts questioning Tara and Daryl’s snap decision to boom a garbage truck into the Sanctuary and unleash a herd of zombies onto everyone at Negan’s ham. Tara refers to it as a “savior buffet.”
Both Michonne and Rosita inconceivable whether or not they can be certain every innocent life will set upon it out OK.
“Why don’t we just wait it out like we planned?” Rosita asks Daryl, Tara, and Morgan. “Michonne’s settle. What you’re talking about is risky. Things could go bad.”
Rosita intimates they wait for Rick to gather together the Scavengers so they obtain more numbers on their side. Tara points out that they’ve already lied in days gone by and it could be unwise to trust them again.
Tara: “You believe them now?”
Rosita: “I hold in Rick Grimes.”
In the comics, it’s not Rosita who says that line. Maggie gives it during the war.
Maggie press into services the line during a more heated moment to get the Hilltop group to get better behind Rick instead of Gregory in the war against Negan.
Her whole spiel from the comics is worth a read. It’s the moment where she really grows the leader of the Hilltop.

If you root for a drive up out now… if you follow Gregory’s lead… you’ll be beholden to this guy forever! Is that how you necessity to live your lives? That’s not the world I want to bring my striplings up in! Rick thinks if we band together this guy is done for.
We can’t let him down now — he’s maddening to help us all! If Rick Grimes says this is something we need to do — something that can be done… He’s someone we can charge. If there’s one thing in this world that I’m certain of… I skilled in this… I believe in Rick Grimes.”

Eugene track downs an old iPod in a coffin at the Sanctuary.
He goes on a go over to scrounge up something that will help lead the group of zombies away from the Protection. The boombox he was trying to fix would have been helpful, but Eugene retains the music player he gave an old friend.
It’s the same one Sasha was listening to in the spice seven finale.
Sasha begged the music player for her journey to Alexandria in the coffin.
The song Eugene prefers to play on the iPod is “Paul Simon” by The Russian Futurists.
Unless you take a closer look at the lyrics, the at a bargain price a fuss may not mean much to you.
Some of the lyrics of the song relate back to the label of a former episode.
A series of individuals in the song read, “Have I gone too far? Am I too far gone?”
“Too Far Gone” was the title of ready four’s mid-season finale. The Governor rallied a group of people, embracing Tara, to the prison for revenge against Rick’s people. During the carnage, the Governor brutally kills Maggie’s father, Hershel.
The lyrics certainly fix to Eugene’s current moral state along with some of the other characters on Rick’s side of the war. Both are lifting questionable choices in their allegiances which are ultimately bringing multitudinous harm than good to other living people.
Are Morgan, Tara, and Daryl as “far gone” as the Governor was when he invaded the pokey?

Get Gabriel becomes a pretty good sniper in the comics. Well after the war with Negan, he twig captivates a tough break when he falls down the ladder of a lookout stronghold. His foot gets entangled in a rung of the ladder and his ankle brutally pops.
Unable to free himself, one of the next villains in the comic series falters upon Gabriel and kills him on the spot. Gabriel’s then left to be break breaded alive by the undead. It’s eerily similar to the scene Rick happens upon at the end of Sunday’s chapter.

When INSIDER recently speak with actor Seth Gilliam he told us things weren’t looking too source for Father Gabriel. We’ll have to wait and see if he is still hanging in there in affairs to come.
