'Walking Dead' fans have more questions than answers

Yahoo TV

The Walking Dead left fans with a lot of questions this week. What’s the deal with that helicopter, and why was Jadis trying to signal it? Who’s really the bad guy, Rick or Negan? And who did Negan pick up?

You may remember in Episode 5, Rick was on his way to the Heap when a helicopter flew overhead. In this episode, the helicopter comes to the Heap while Jadis tries furiously to signal it with a flare — after another flare fell into a puddle during a struggle with Negan.

Speaking of Negan, he actually came across as a decent human being this episode. He took responsibility and apologized to Jadis for Simon’s slaughtering her people. “I wouldn’t have killed all your people,” Negan said. “That was the work of someone not following the program. But this is my mistake. I’ll own this. I took a chance on someone. Thought I was doing the right thing, and all I did was punch myself in the d***. I am sorry for this. I really am. I’m sorry that you lost all you had.”

Meanwhile, Rick and Morgan were being held captive by the Saviors who had escaped the Hilltop. Rick promised that they could return and live at the Hilltop if they let him and Morgan go. “I’m giving you my word,” he said. “There’s not a lot that’s worth much these days, but a man’s word has got to mean something, right?” Wrong. While a herd of walkers attacked the group, the Saviors let Rick and Morgan go. It wasn’t long before those two began killing every one of them. Rick even admitted to lying before putting a bullet in someone’s head.

Finally, Negan had persuaded Jadis to let him go and was on his way back to the Sanctuary when he pulled over to the side of the road, opened the passenger door and told someone to get in. Viewers never saw who he was talking to, not even when he got to the Sanctuary. Some fans think it’s Gregory. Others think it’s Laura. But until next week, it’s all just speculation.

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on AMC.
