Why was Rick smiling at the end of The Walking Dead 709?

After some searching, Rick found a note left presumably for him that included a single word: boat. This isn't just a whim that endangers everyone's life, it's a desperate gamble, the sort of risk they'll need to be willing to take if they want to have a chance of beating the Saviors.

The episode began with Gabriel breaking into Alexandria's storage locker in the middle of the night, snatching up all the food and guns he could get his hands on before driving off in a auto to places unknown. Because of reasons...that aren't quite clear. He sees in them the army necessary to fight Negan.

As we look ahead, it sure seems like Rick's militia is growing. and they have dynamite at their disposal.

First, you can watch Season 7 on-demand on AMC.com. Ezekiel tells Rick he'll think about his cause. It's a start, but it's not almost enough (not to mention they're completely untrained).

Daryl and Jesus (Tom Payne) had escaped Negan's compound by killing Fat Joey (Joshua Hoover) and recovering Rick's signature 6-inch, stainless-steel, .357 magnum Colt Python.

Can I just say, damn it feels good to get our Rick Grimes of old back. We know enough about Ezekiel now to like him; we even know that he's smarter than his ridiculous royalty act lets on.

Both King Ezekiel and Gregory wanted nothing to do with Rick's plan to take out the Big Bad. Instead, he offered asylum to Daryl saying that the Saviors don't set foot inside his walls. Rick and Team Family then leave poor Daryl behind. Rick Grimes has a lot of consequences, so we wondered what might happen if, instead of showing mercy, Rick killed his enemy as soon as he had the chance.

Do The Saviors Know About The New Group?

Enid has a surprise for the group. She also admitted that the group is ready to fight but they will not use the same tactics viewers have seen in the past. Could they just know something about it?

Our last sight of the reunited crew (minus hostage Eugene) is of them striding toward the Hilltop Colony mansion to confer with leader Gregory (Xander Berkeley). They come across a blockade of cars, and just past that, there's an enormous tripwire armed with explosives. They have to travel far and wide to make a case for war. And if they do, somehow, they will have saved us and we won't have done a thing'. If you do not want to be spoiled, get out of here. Rick finds tracks in the area, and the group follows them to some kind of encampment. He's still convinced there's a better way that to fight the Saviors. Simon proves to be a hilariously endearing villain yet again, props to Steven Ogg and his captivating performance as always.

Back at Alexandria, Negan's mustachioed lieutenant/protege arrives looking for Daryl and winds up, in typical brutish fashion, wrecking a good bit of the town in the process. Once Simon leaves with a warning, Rick learns Gabriel is missing.

Morgan, asked by Ezekiel what he thought, told him: 'People will die. Look at her being useful; she makes us proud. Meet the garbage pail kids. After multiple episodes of Negan calling Rick a "cuck" while he whistled, raped women, and pretended that a baseball bat was a person, any episode that contains a Michonne smile should be taken as a small victory, and celebrated accordingly.
