- "I don't want to do this. But people need to understand that at Hilltop, the punishment fits the crime. Do you have any final words? [...] You're wrong. I'm not ashamed [...] Get the children back in bed. I made this decision... But this is not the beginning of something. I don't want to go through it again. Cut him down."

Maggie Rhee (née Greene) is a main character and a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. She is the eldest and only daughter of Hershel and Josephine Greene, stepdaughter to Annette Greene, older half-sister of Beth, younger stepsister to Shawn, and the last known surviving member of the Greene family. She is the widow of Glenn Rhee and the mother of Hershel. She is the former leader of the Hilltop Colony, and was one of the four co-leaders of the Militia, along with Rick Grimes, Ezekiel, and Cyndie before its disbanding. At some point after Rick's assumed death, she left the Hilltop to join Georgie's group and brought her son with her.
Maggie is an intelligent, caring, and brave woman. She is shown to be a loving daughter, sister, friend, wife, and mother.
Before meeting Rick Grimes' group, she had trouble adapting to the true nature of the apocalyptic world as her family initially believes that the walkers were simply sick people. Her mindset changes after an almost death experience with a walker. After this occurs, she becomes more invested with the core group, now understanding the need to fight for survival despite this initially putting a strain on her relationship with her father, Hershel. Devoted to her husband, Glenn Rhee, and the people around her, she constantly looks out for the best interests of the group and becomes a strong contributor to her group after the destruction of her father's farm. Maggie was shown to be religious to an extent, although by the fifth season she appears to be an atheist. It is possible by the season's end she has repossessed her faith.
During the third season, Maggie, like everyone else, had become battle-hardened after surviving the entire winter on the road, although she still retains her kind side. She is shown to become slightly suspicious and untrustworthy towards different survivors, such as Axel and Oscar, although she, like the rest of the group, eventually accept them. After an invasion of walkers into the prison as a result of Andrew, Maggie is forced to perform a fatal, emergency C-section on Lori Grimes to deliver her baby, an act that visibly traumatizes her for a short time; however, she quickly moves-on and becomes dedicated to keeping Lori's baby alive. Maggie's strong bravery is shown after she and Glenn are captured by Daryl's brother, Merle, and taken to Woodbury where she is interrogated, threatened, and humiliated by the Governor, but does not crack until the latter threatens Glenn's life. Maggie is clearly traumatized by this ordeal for a short period, but overcomes her grief and actively takes part in the war against the Governor and Woodbury. It is evident by the season's end that Maggie is very much capable of committing murder to protect the people she cares about from danger.
By the fourth season, Maggie maintains a strong position in the prison's community and is shown to have become fiercely devoted to the well being of her husband, family, and friends. Following the Governor's return, the destruction of the prison, and the brutal death of her beloved father, Hershel, Maggie embarks on a devoted journey to find her husband, Glenn, at all costs and seems to become slightly distant from others and somewhat reckless, although she eventually overcomes this. Maggie has no doubt accepted the utter cruelty of the post-apocalyptic world during this season as a result of her father's death, as she instantly assumes following the prison attack that her only remaining relative, Beth, is more than likely dead and makes no attempt to look for her after finding her husband, Glenn.
During the fifth season, Maggie's personality changes dramatically as following the escape from Terminus, she is shown to become more traumatized by the horrors she has encountered and has developed a noticeably colder personality, as expressed during interactions with Father Gabriel in which she reveals that she is no longer religious and insults him. After the death of her sister, Beth, Maggie is visibly broken and traumatized and even claims she does not know if she wants to continue fighting to stay alive. These feelings appear lost after entering the Alexandria Safe-Zone where she becomes much more relaxed and active in the community as Deanna Monroe's assistant. By the season's end, Maggie is shown to have lost some of her colder personality aspects when she saves Gabriel from being killed by Sasha (after he betrayed her group to Deanna) and possibly appears to be religious again. She strongly believes in making a life in the new world, rather than constantly trying to stay alive.
After Glenn's death, Maggie, grief stricken and depressed, is determined to fight the Saviors and kill Negan for the brutal murders of her husband and Abraham. She maintains her humanity by sparing and not mistreating the Saviors who surrendered or were captured. However, as the war with the Saviors progresses, Maggie becomes colder, slowly exposing a more ruthless side. She is focused and determined to kill Negan at all costs. Although Maggie is relieved after the war is won and is content that the Saviors who surrendered were kept alive, she is enraged at Rick and Michonne for deciding to allow Negan to live. She, along with Jesus and Daryl, calmly vow to make the Hilltop strong again and wait for the right moment to exact their revenge, implying that Maggie may have sinister intentions towards Rick and Michonne.
By the ninth season, and 18 months after the end of the war against the Saviors, Maggie is in full command of the Hilltop and is a strong, effective and caring leader willing to do whatever is necessary to benefit her people. She is also a happy, loving mother to her newborn child. Despite this however, Maggie is still traumatized by the death of her husband, Glenn, as she refuses to go to Alexandria due to the fact that her husband's murderer, Negan, is incarcerated there under Rick's orders and no doubt still wants revenge against him and still appears to hold a grudge against the Saviors as a whole. She is shown to not be willing to take chances with those who pose a threat to her as she has Gregory hanged as punishment for his attempted assassination of her, claiming that the punishment must fit the crime, though she still gives Earl (the man who was manipulated by Gregory into killing her) a second chance after incarcerating him.
Maggie's ideology of punishing threats directly conflicts with Rick's desire for the communities, including the Saviors, to all work together to build a civilization and avoid killing the living and this comes to fruition when she (and Daryl) allows Cyndie to murder Arat for revenge for killing her younger brother back when the Saviors were under Negan and Simon's leadership as this parallels with Glenn's death at the hands of Negan. Having had enough of Rick's views, Maggie becomes fully committed into killing Negan. However, upon meeting Negan at his jail cell, and seeing how broken and miserable Negan has become since his fall from power, Maggie finally realizes Rick's motives for letting Negan live: Being forced to live with his actions, and spend the rest of his life as a shell of his former self, begging for death, only to be denied.
Maggie's change of view intensifies after Rick's supposed "death" not long afterwards, as she, alongside Daryl, blames herself for Rick's demise due to her commitment to kill Negan, and as a result, ultimately steps down as leader of the Hilltop.
Maggie spent the first 22 years of her life on the Greene family farm. Her mother died when she was young, and this led her father to marry another woman, who left her distraught (wanting to smoke and shoplift). Despite this, however, she grew to have a loving relationship with her step-mother, Annette, and step-brother, Shawn. She also had a good relationship with Otis, who had been their ranch foreman for several years. It's known that she graduated high school and attended college; however, it's unknown if she dropped out or was still enrolled by the time the outbreak began.
When the infection spread, her neighbors and family members succumbed to it and turned into walkers. Hershel kept her, Beth, Beth's boyfriend Jimmy, Otis, and his wife Patricia all safe by barricading them within the farm. She occasionally made runs into town to retrieve needed supplies.
When Maggie first witnesses Rick Grimes running towards the property with his injured son Carl in his hands, she calls out to the other residents of the farm for medical help. Maggie then asks Rick where his wife is, volunteering to find her so that Rick can remain at the farm with his son. She heads into the woods on horseback and encounters Andrea, Carol Peletier, Daryl Dixon, and Glenn, while saving Andrea from being bitten by a walker before informing Lori that her son has been shot. After convincing Lori to come with her on horseback, she gives the others the location of the farm and rides off.
When Glenn and T-Dog make it to the farm, Patricia tends to T-Dog's injured arm while Maggie talks to Glenn on the Greene's front porch. When Shane Walsh returns with the news of Otis' death, Maggie is devastated. She is found crying in front of the refrigerator by Glenn, and tells him that she knew Otis her entire life.
Maggie is seen showing the Atlanta Survivors the landscape and areas to find Sophia Peletier, and also volunteers to go to the pharmacy with Glenn to gather medical supplies. Before departing, she also helps with Glenn and the others as they struggle to get the walker out of the well. At the pharmacy, Maggie notices Glenn finding condoms (he was really searching for a pregnancy test for Lori) and Maggie scoffs at him, before saying she would like to have sex with him. They have sex, however, on the way back, Maggie says it was a one-time thing, much to Glenn's disappointment.
She is seen coming out of the farmhouse as Glenn sits on the porch with a guitar. They talk and joke about the condoms and she is still questioning whether she likes Glenn or not. Later she is in the house helping Carol, Lori, Beth, and Patricia with setting up the table for a nice dinner with both groups of survivors. She is confronted by her father about what people are doing without his permission as well as he seems to hint towards the relationship between her and Glenn and warns her not to pursue it as they will not be around much longer. She tells Hershel that she's old enough to know what to do and walks away from the conversation. After, she and Glenn are seen passing each other notes about where to have sex next. Maggie however doesn't read the note until after when she is cleaning up. She is shocked as to where Glenn wrote the location and is seen at night in the barn telling him that he wasn't supposed to see inside the barn.
Maggie sees Glenn looking at the barn with binoculars and tells him that he is being obvious about Hershel's secret, saying, "Could you be any more obvious?" After talking about the walkers in the barn and Maggie pleading with Glenn to keep the secret from his group, he tells her that he is making another run to the pharmacy for Lori. Maggie agrees to go along with him. On the way to the pharmacy, her and Glenn discuss walkers, and she reveals that she believes there is a cure and says that she doesn't use the term "walkers." When Glenn asks what she calls them instead, she replies with several names including her mother and brother. Once inside the pharmacy, she receives a list of supplies to gather from Glenn. While searching for an item, she is attacked by a walker. Glenn reacts quickly to the close call by nearly severing the zombie's head with a shelf. After it gets back up, he attacks it viciously with a blade. When Maggie returns to the camp with Glenn, she throws Lori's supplies at her, clearly upset by how close Lori put her to dying. She storms off, with Glenn following her shortly after, and tells Glenn that she thinks he is smart and is a leader, but that the others in his group refuse to acknowledge that. She believes that they consider him "walker-bait."
Maggie is upset with Glenn about him telling Dale Horvath and then everyone else about the walkers in the barn. Glenn tells her that he'd rather have her mad at him and alive than happy with him and dead. Maggie then realizes that it was for the greater good. The two are on great terms after that, passionately kissing and returning to being a couple. She tries to convince Hershel to let the group stay at the farm and notes that he's changed recently. She and her father force themselves to watch their neighbors and family members get put down by the group.
Maggie asks Glenn if he would stay if the rest of his group were to leave, but Glenn is unsure how to answer. Glenn confides to Rick that Maggie told him she loved him. Rick says that they need more good things like that in their lives, and that he should embrace those moments.
At the farm house, Beth is still in a state of shock, not being able to react to anything. Maggie tells Andrea a story about Beth finding her birth control pills and how she lied to their father to keep her out of trouble. Maggie pulls Glenn aside and asks him if anything is wrong, he explains how her father saved his life, and that he froze and could not do anything to help. He had froze because she told him that she loved him, and he was afraid to die because of how it would affect her. She tries to embrace him, but he pushes her away.
Maggie confesses to Lori that Glenn lost confidence after the shootout at the bar. Maggie scolds Beth for considering suicide while Beth tries to convince Maggie that they should kill themselves. "I don't want to be gutted," she says. "I want to go in this bed, tonight". Maggie finds Andrea and forbids she ever enter the house for leaving Beth to try to commit suicide.
Maggie does not have a big role in this episode, but later that night, Maggie is seen at Dale's death as he was about to be shot by Daryl to prevent further reanimation.
Maggie is seen talking with the group when they are moving into Hershel's home. Maggie is also seen talking with Glenn. Maggie tells him that he can move his possessions into her room but he declines the offer and says he will move into another room. After this she is seen investigating the barn after Randall is set free by Shane.
During the walker attack on the farm, Maggie and Glenn drive the SUV Shane had previously fixed up as an attempt to distract the walkers from the barn, where Rick and Carl were holding up. Glenn convinces her the farm is lost and the two drive off. After an undetermined number of hours, Maggie worries about the fate of her family and, as a result, becomes emotionally distraught. Glenn takes over driving for her, but not before he tells her that he loves her, something he was unable to say in previous episodes. The two later regroup with the rest of the survivors and discover that Jimmy and Patricia did not make it off the farm alive. After running low on fuel while on a caravan, everyone camps along the side of the road, waiting for morning to come.
Maggie is seen with the group when they stumble upon an abandoned house and Rick, Carl, Daryl, and T-Dog kill the Walkers inside of it. The group is forced to flee, however, when another herd of walkers begin to approach their location. After Daryl and Rick stumble upon a prison while hunting, Maggie helps out to distract and kill the walkers (showing that similar to Carol, Maggie has no problem with killing walkers) while Rick runs inside the prison yard to close the main gate. At night, Maggie assists her sister Beth in singing an Irish drinking song. The next day, Maggie assists Rick, Daryl, Glenn, and T-Dog in killing the remainder of the walkers on the interior of the prison, and is the first one to successfully kill one of the walkers dressed in riot gear. The romantic relationship between her and Glenn continues as the two share a cell on the inside of the prison and cuddle as Glenn checks her for scratch marks. The next day after sleeping in the inside of the prison, Rick, Daryl, T-Dog, Glenn, Maggie, and Hershel suit up and explore more of the inside of the prison in search of its infirmary and cafeteria. The group is ambushed by walkers, causing both Maggie and Glenn to split up from the rest. Hershel insists that himself, Rick, Daryl, and T-Dog go back to look for them, and Hershel manages to find them, but is bit in the right calf by a lurker lying against the wall. Maggie assists them in taking Hershel to the cafeteria, and is present when Rick amputates the lower portion of Hershel's right leg to keep the infection from spreading.
Maggie, like the others who doesn't deal with the prisoners, appears mostly by Hershel's side in this episode. Maggie has a hard time coping with her father's condition and is consoled by Glenn. Glenn told Maggie to stay strong and that she's not alone in this. He told Maggie to check on Beth and see how she's doing. Maggie finds Beth ripping Hershel's Pants and she asked what her little sister is doing. Maggie's pessimistic attitude is questioned by Beth, and Beth got angry at her for giving up on their father so easily. After that, Maggie finds Glenn handcuffing Hershel just to be safe. Maggie wanted to be left alone with her father, and the others wait for her outside of Hershel's cell. Maggie has an emotional moment alone with Hershel, telling him that it's okay and that he doesn't have to fight anymore. She will accept it if it's time for him to go, and told him not to worry about Beth and herself. After a while, Hershel stopped breathing and Beth panics. Beth yelled to Lori to give him CPR. After that, Lori gave Hershel a successful CPR. At the end of the episode, Hershel finally wakes up and Maggie and Beth cried tears of relief while holding each other.
After attempting to seek safety inside the prison, Carl, Lori, and Maggie are confronted by a small horde of walkers, causing them to flee into the maze of the prison. Soon after their run, Lori goes into labor. The group of three then flee into the boiler room, to aid Lori. After attempting to birth the child naturally, Lori tells Maggie to preform a Cesarean Section to safely birth the child. Maggie tearfully begs Lori not to make her do it, as she has no medical supplies on hand and the delivery of the baby would inevitably cost Lori her life. But she is soon persuaded by Lori to go through with the C-section anyway. She apologizes to Lori and Carl for what she is about to do. Using Carl's knife, Maggie cuts Lori open on her previous C-section scar, and pulls out her baby. After a few moments of silence from the baby, it starts to cry in Maggie's arms. After a tearful goodbye, Carl shoots his mother, to prevent her from reanimating. Maggie and Carl venture back outside to be reunited with the rest of the group, and also to break the news of Lori's death to Rick. She sobs over the loss as Glenn holds her and the baby in his arms.
Maggie is disturbed by the events of the previous episode, especially Lori's death, and is being consoled by Glenn. When Rick departs to retrieve Lori's body, she attempts to stop him, to no avail. Hershel states that the baby requires formula to survive and she, Daryl, and Glenn volunteer to go. Because the place they are going to has a narrow road, Daryl can only take one person on his bike. Maggie says that she needs to go, for Lori. Daryl and her ride off to the local nursery. They search the building and find it clear of walkers. She manages to scavenge baby supplies, especially formula. Daryl and her then head back to the prison. Once the baby is fed, they all sit in the cell block and attempt thinking of a name.
Maggie and Glenn make a run into town to find gas, batteries, and baby formula. Unknown to them, an injured Michonne watches them from behind a car. When she and Glenn prepare to leave, Merle Dixon comes up behind them. Glenn and Maggie raise their guns at Merle. When Merle and Glenn recognize each other, Glenn lowers his gun. Merle tries to calmly find out where they are staying, but he ends up attacking Maggie. With Maggie held at gunpoint, he demands that Glenn drive them to Woodbury. Once there, she is locked up for interrogation.
She hears Merle interrogating Glenn, and begins to cry when she hears Merle beating him. After Merle is done with Glenn, he is about to go interrogate her, but The Governor insists on doing it instead. He goes in and cuts off her restraints. At first, he feigns kindness and attempts to get her to divulge the group's whereabouts, but she refuses. He then resorts to a different approach, and orders her to take off her shirt. She refuses, but he says he will bring Glenn's hand in if she doesn't. She takes off her shirt, and he then makes her take off her bra. After she does, he bluffs raping her, coming from behind and pushing her face into the table. He then takes her to Glenn at gunpoint, still topless. Assuming he raped her, Glenn attempts to attack him. When The Governor points his gun at Glenn's head, Maggie divulges everything. The Governor embraces her, and she begins crying. He leaves, and Maggie runs into Glenn's arms.
Glenn and Maggie are first seen sitting in the room with the dead walker Glenn had killed. Glenn breaks off a shard of bone from the walker's forearm and hands it to Maggie. Glenn and Maggie stage a successful ambush of Merle and Warren, when they arrive to take them to the "screamer pits" (with Maggie killing Warren by stabbing him in the throat with the bone shard), but they are restrained when Martinez arrives and holds them at gunpoint. While being escorted a second time, Rick's group approach and uses a flash grenade, before rescuing Glenn and Maggie. Maggie takes part in the Woodbury shootout and witnesses Oscar being fatally shot by one of the soldiers. She then shoots Oscar in the head to prevent reanimation. Maggie also trains her gun on Michonne along with Rick and Glenn when she rejoins them outside of Woodbury following the shootout.
Maggie re-enters Woodbury to assist Rick in setting Daryl free. She shoots and kills Haley along with various walkers, before escaping with Rick, Merle, and Daryl. They discuss Merle's fate, and determine that he can't stay. Upon Daryl's decision to depart with Merle, she bids him farewell. Later on, while moving a tree and car out of the road, Glenn throws a fit and fights with Rick and Maggie. When Maggie arrives at the prison, Beth hugs her and Hershel tells Beth to take Maggie inside the prison. Later on, Maggie sees Glenn being checked up by Hershel and she awkwardly avoids Glenn and enters another cell. Hershel came and talk to her and told her that he can rest easy knowing that she can take care of herself. He jokingly stated that she got her mother's spirit and stubbornness. She is present while Rick is discussing the fate of Tyreese and his group. When Rick suddenly throws a fit, Maggie tries to calm him down but he lashes out at her and she retracts. She and the others stare in confusion at Rick as to why his mood suddenly changed.
Maggie is in the common room of the prison, where Glenn reveals his plan to sneak attack Woodbury and execute The Governor, along with Michonne, and she then storms off. Glenn goes to talk to her, and he insists that they talk about her encounter with The Governor and he asks if she was raped. She snaps at him before telling him all that happened and answering that she was not raped. Glenn reaches out to her but she shoves him away, bitterly asking if he feels better now that he knows the full story. Later, while Maggie is still resting in her cell, Beth walks in and ask Maggie to hold Judith while she's going to make Hershel some food. Maggie feeds Judith a bottle of milk with some guidance from Beth. Beth holds Maggie's hands to make her feel better. During Woodbury's attack on the prison, Maggie called out to Beth and handed her some guns. She covers for Carol so she can run to Carl and Beth, and she sees Hershel surrounded by walkers from afar. She kills an enemy sniper shooting at them from one of the guard towers and rushes out into the prison field with Carol, Beth, and Carl to rescue Hershel. She kissed her father on the cheek after he survived the onslaught. She and Glenn hold hands as they watched the walkers on the prison field with horror.
Maggie is seen with the group when they discuss the situation with The Governor. Maggie lashes out at Merle and wants him moved to another cell block, blaming him for starting the war between Woodbury and the group, but Beth holds her off. Maggie is the first to see Andrea coming to the Prison, and tells Carl to alert Rick and the others. When Andrea enters the prison, Maggie and the others inform her of Phillip's doing and that he's the first one to start the war between them by kidnapping Maggie and Glenn. Maggie also informs Andrea that Lori and T-Dog died in the prison. Later on, when Andrea asked Carol how Lori had died, she told her that Maggie had to perform C-section on Lori because they were separated by that time and neither Hershel or her were available to perform it. When Andrea leaves the prison, Maggie and the others bid her farewell and they let her take some supplies and a car. On that night, Maggie and the others listen to Beth singing and she appreciates her singing as a way to calm the group before the war with the governor.
Maggie remains at the prison. She and the others are managing weapons around the prison to get ready for the upcoming war between Woodbury and the Prison. She attempts to stop Merle from leaving, and later tackles him in a choke hold as he grapples with Glenn, who too was trying to stop Merle from leaving, but Beth quickly end the fight with a single shot into the air. She later reconciles with Glenn when they are keeping watch and the two make love inside a storage room. She appears at the end of the episode listening to Rick's speech about going to war with The Governor.
Maggie is seen helping the others fortify the prison and attracting walkers near the fence so Glenn, Daryl and Michonne can get to the yard. Later, she is with Beth and Hershel praying, when he tells her daughters he would do anything to protect them. Later, Maggie is proposed to by Glenn, when he brings her a ring he took from a female walker, which she happily accepts. She is also present when Rick delivers his speech regarding decisions that affect the group as whole.
Maggie is first seen packing the group's stuff into the cars along everyone else. Later, when the Woodbury Army arrives to the Prison, Rick's group ambush them with grenades and walkers, forcing them to retreat outside, where they are attacked by Glenn and Maggie, both of them using riot gear and assault rifles. The Army retires as everyone moves back in. As everyone fears that The Governor will attack again, Rick, Daryl and Michonne depart to Woodbury to finish him, with Glenn and Maggie offering to guard the Prison. She is seen later when they return with Woodbury residents in a bus.
Maggie is first seen waking up beside Glenn, telling him that she will be going on the supply run to the Big Spot. Glenn tells her to stay and she agrees, reminding him that everything will be okay. Then, she kisses Glenn and they take off their clothes and have sex. Later that night, Maggie tells Glenn that she is not pregnant (which is why Glenn did not want her to go on the supply run). After the two hug, she tells him that they could have had a baby though and that she wants to be alive, just not breathing and take the chance in the future.
She is first seen with Glenn in one of the watch towers and she wakes up after he takes a picture of her sleeping before he leaves. She is then seen on watch as cell block D is attacked and goes to rescue Michonne who was being attacked by walkers. She then goes up with Carl and Michonne to the cell blocks where they find out from Rick what's going on. Later she calls for Rick and Daryl's help with the walkers at the fence and desperately tries to kill each of them like the others until Rick and Daryl use the pigs to draw the walkers away.
Maggie is first seen digging graves, along with Glenn, who views her from a distance as they can not come into contact with one another. She then walks in on Glenn, who is coughing, and tells her that he has it (the illness). Maggie talks to Beth and tell hers that Glenn is infected, with Beth telling her they both have their jobs and to stay strong. Later in the episode, Maggie runs into Hershel, who is wanting to go into the isolated cell block and to help the sick. Maggie, along with Rick, plead him not to go in, knowing that he could get sick. Hershel refuses and goes in, saying that he knows he can help the sick. She then talks to Beth again, with both of them saying they need to be strong.
Maggie is first seen speaking to Hershel through the glass about the status of Glenn. Hershel lies and tells her that Glenn is sleeping, when he is actually helping him with the sick. Maggie then opens the gate for Rick as he arrives back to the prison. While heading in, Maggie asks Rick where Carol is. Rick is honest with her and tells her that she admitted that she killed Karen and David and that he left her. Maggie tells Rick that she agrees with his decision, but is not sure she could have done it. Rick replies to her by saying that she could have and to never doubt herself.
Maggie is later seen helping Rick pin logs against the fence that is starting to give way to the walkers. While helping, Rick falls down after being grabbed by a walker, to which Maggie hurries and chops off the walker's arm.
Moments later, Maggie is chopping logs with Rick when they hear a gunshot coming from inside the prison. Maggie continues to chop the wood, saying they need to support the fence, but Rick tells her to check out the situation in the prison and they can finish the chopping the logs when she returns. Once inside she looks through the door and sees that the sick are in panic. She tries to wedge the door open with an axe but is unsuccessful. She then shoots out the window to get inside the cell block and saves Hershel from a reanimated patient. She then goes over to a deathly ill Glenn and helps Hershel revive him. She is then seen by Glenn's side as Bob Stookey gives him medicine and telling Hershel to get some rest.
Maggie is first seen talking to a recovering Glenn. He tries to explain to her that he is strong enough to take care of himself. She says that she knows he is, but he doesn't have to take care of himself. Later on, after the explosion, she runs to the courtyard to meet the others. Her and Beth start to cry once they see Hershel and Michonne as hostages outside of the prison. Daryl then hands Maggie and Beth a weapon, getting ready to fight. Later, Maggie and Beth witness Philip decapitate Hershel, which immediately devastates them. Maggie tearfully shoots at the army, along with her other fellow survivors. She and Beth split up as Maggie goes to evacuate the cell blocks and save Glenn, while Beth goes to get the bus ready to drive. Maggie later gets Glenn and the others to the bus only to find Beth missing, and Jeanette tells her that she went to go find Judith. Maggie then meets up with Sasha and Bob. The bus drives off due to the Governor's army closing in, stranding the three survivors at the prison. In the end, Maggie, Sasha and Bob flee the prison on foot, going in the direction the bus was heading.
Maggie is first seen with Bob, and Sasha in the woods by a quarry. Maggie is shown sharpening her knife on a rock, while Sasha is bandaging Bob's arm. Sasha then tells Maggie they should camp there for tonight, with Maggie agreeing that Bob and Sasha should while she goes to find Glenn. Sasha claims that they can't split up now, while Maggie exclaims she is going to find Glenn, storming off with Bob and Sasha in pursuit. After walking, they come across the prison bus, upon further inspection it is full of the walkers of the former prison population, and she tells them that she has to check to see if Glenn's inside. After Bob says they'd do it together, and Sasha reluctantly agrees, Sasha opens the emergency exit to let one walker fall out every moment one at a time. Eventually, the walkers are too much and Sasha can not hold the door any longer. As the walkers attack, Bob and Sasha defend themselves, with Maggie dazed. However, Maggie becomes enraged that everyone on the bus had died and begins to kill the walkers in a brutal fashion, even smashing a female walkers head into the bus before stabbing it. Maggie then goes onto the bus to see if Glenn is there and, after she kills a walker that was stuck, sits down and begins to cry tears of joy, realizing that Glenn had not been on the bus.
Maggie is first seen fighting off walkers, along with Sasha and Bob, in the fog. They then soon encounter the railroad tracks and a sign for Terminus. Maggie states she knows Glenn would go there and the group soon decides to follow the tracks.
The next morning Maggie is gone by the time Sasha and Bob wake up and leaves them a note in the dirt telling them she doesn't want them to risk their lives for her. While heading to Terminus she kills a walker and uses it's blood to write a sign to Glenn to let him know that she is heading to Terminus.
She is then seen later hiding from walkers outside the building Sasha is staying in. Sasha accidentally knocks out the window, attracting many walkers. Maggie beings to fight off the walkers, with Sasha's help. Maggie then tells Sasha that she knows she's afraid and convinces her to help her to keep heading to Terminus, with Sasha agreeing. The two then find Bob and continue heading towards Terminus.
Maggie is first seen killing the walkers in the tunnel with Sasha, Bob and the newly found Abraham Ford, Rosita Espinosa, and Eugene Porter. She and Glenn finally unite and she thanks Tara for sticking by with him. As the re-found couple relax, Abraham says they are heading to D.C. in the morning. The other members of the group protest and convince him to go to Terminus. At the end of the episode the group finally makes it to Terminus and are greeted by a woman called Mary who asks them if they would like something to eat.
Maggie is first seen in a flashback returning from a supply run. Maggie later appears in the train car at Terminus when Rick, Carl, Michonne and Daryl enter.
As members of the group begin to craft makeshift weapons to escape the boxcar with, Maggie uses her father's watch as a weapon, and breaks its chain. However, the guards drop a smoke bomb through the roof of the container, effectively disarming the survivors. Glenn, along with Rick, Daryl, and Bob, is taken by the guards, much to Maggie's dismay.
The group trapped inside the train-car hears explosions and gunfire, they begin to fear what happened to the four members of their group that were taken. Suddenly, Glenn and the others return to the Boxcar and free the survivors. The group escapes Terminus safely.
Whilst digging up his bag of weapons in the woods, Rick suggests to the group that they go back and kill the remaining Terminants. Maggie disagrees, stating "The fences are down, they'll run or die." Maggie is then happy to find Carol, Tyreese, and Judith alive.
Maggie is seen hugging Glenn at the start of the episode, before smiling as she catches Tara watching. She is also seen when Rick is interrogating Gabriel Stokes, whom the group has encountered and saved.
Later in the episode, Maggie and Tara are talking outside a gun store, before being alerted by a noise and raising their weapons only to see Glenn exit.
At the Celebratory feast, Tara confesses to a shocked Maggie that she was part of the attack on the Prison although didn't realize the true motives of the Governor. Maggie accepts this and tells Tara, 'you're with us now', meaning she has accepted her into the group.
Glenn proposes that he, Maggie, and Tara will go with Abraham and Rosita to Washington, D.C., if Abraham remains with the group long enough to fend off Gareth and the remaining Terminites. Maggie is present when Bob is discovered outside the church with an amputated leg. When Rick leads a group away from the church to confront Gareth, Maggie remains inside when Gareth sneaks in with his group. She watches with Glenn as Rick, Michonne, Tyreese, and Sasha brutally beat the Terminites to death. When Father Gabriel, shocked at the violence he has witnessed comments by claiming the church is God's house, Maggie denies this by saying that it is simply four walls and a roof, hinting that she no longer believes in God.
Later, Maggie joins Glenn, Rosita, Tara, and Abraham inside the bus en route to D.C., upholding their end of the deal.
Maggie is in the bus and wonders whether Daryl and Carol might've returned to the church and that the others might be right behind them. She asks Eugene how long it'll take for the world to go back to normal. He says his depends on a variety of factors. The bus then breaks down and flips over when it hits a car. Everyone is fine but walkers surround the bus. They fight their way out, with Abraham and Eugene leading the way then Maggie and Rosita following. Once they fight the walkers they debate what to do next. The group continue to Washington on foot and hole up in a book store overnight. They fortify the store for safety and Maggie removes string from a book spine for Rosita to use on Abraham's hand. Later at night Maggie feels guilty for leaving the rest of the group behind but is happy she has Glenn. The next morning Maggie suggests scavenging the town but Abraham is keen to continue. When he moves the firetruck and walkers stream out the building, Maggie takes a few out before Eugene uses the hose to kill the rest. Later when the firetruck stops again and Maggie talks to Eugene. She tells him that she knows why he has the hair and its so he doesn't seem like everyone else, using a story from the bible as evidence. Maggie is shocked later on when Eugene reveals he is not a scientist but still tends to him when Abraham knocks him out.
Maggie volunteers to look after an unconscious Eugene and keep an eye on Abraham while Glenn, Tara, and Rosita forage for food and water. She offers Abraham a water bottle, but he refuses it. Angered by his despondency over Eugene's reveal, Maggie tells him that he's not the only person who has lost something, and that sooner or later he will have to get over himself. Maggie pulls a blanket over a ladder suspended over Eugene's head in order to keep the sun off of him. She later questions him if he wanted her to shoot him, understanding Abraham's suicidal state of emotion. Eventually, Abraham finally accepts the water bottle and Eugene wakes up, to Maggie's relief.
Maggie returns to the church with the rest of her group, where she learns from Michonne that Beth is still alive. Ecstatic over this revelation, she eagerly heads over to Grady Memorial Hospital with everyone else left at the church to rescue and finally be reunited with her half-sister. However, Maggie arrives too late; upon reaching the hospital, she is seen to be visually excited when she sees the group exiting the hospital, but then begins to realize that something bad had happened due to the groups facial expression when she sees Daryl carrying Beth's dead body, she falls to the ground in hysterics.
Maggie is seen still devastated towards the unexpected death of her half-sister, crying by a fire pit.
Maggie is still mourning over her recent loss in this episode. She appears to be very frustrated throughout the episode, often reclusive and tense. She becomes better friends with Sasha, bonding over the fact that they each had just lost someone very close to them. When Gabriel talks to her, she reveals that she is no longer religious. She says her father was, but she feels that no God could be so cruel to her for practicing faith. Then, she found an abandoned car in the woods. She checked the trunk and found that there was a walker; one that had a resemblance to Beth. She then closed the trunk to hide its face. Suffering from an emotional breakdown, she tried opening it, but the tailgate latch was stuck. She got her gun out to shoot through the tailgate, but Glenn came to her to reassure her and calm her down. Glenn calmly opened the trunk for her and killed the walker inside. Maggie and the others soon relaxed around a campfire for lunch. Maggie stared at Gabriel when he let his collar-piece burn in the fire. Suddenly, four barking dogs came out of nowhere. Maggie slowly reached for her knife to kill the hungry hounds, but Sasha quickly put bullets in each of the dogs' foreheads. Rick then decided to cook the dogs for food, and Maggie ate part of one dog's leg. When the group later found water waiting for them in the streets, Maggie suggested that they leave the water. It soon began to rain, which pleased Maggie and the others because it was more reliable than a stranger's water, but lightning sent them scurrying to a barn in the woods that Daryl had found. While they were searching in the barn, Maggie found a walker and killed it. Maggie went to go sleep by herself when Rick told the group a story about his grandfather. Maggie later participated in the group's defense of the barn when a large herd of walkers attacked. At dawn, Maggie got up and she went outside with Sasha to check for surviving walkers. They looked around, staring at the sun when Aaron came out of nowhere and wanted to speak with Rick, who he correctly identified as the leader. Naturally, they wanted to know why, but he only gave a vague response, saying he had good news.
Maggie brings Aaron into the barn, vouching for him being good. She goes with Michonne, Abraham, Glenn and Rosita to find Aaron's vehicles, returning with his food. She rides the RV on both legs of the trip to Alexandria, then arriving at the safe zone with the others.
Maggie is seen throughout the episode being seen sniffing some fresh linen on the first night. When Aiden Monroe starts a fight with Glenn, Maggie runs to intervene.
Maggie is seen with Deanna, Rick, and Michonne and discussing how to govern the Safe-Zone, with Deanna revealing Maggie as her assistant. Maggie then convinces Deanna to have Sasha be the lookout for security. She is later seen at the party, talking to Glenn and Noah.
Maggie see's Glenn and the rest of the supply run crew off with Deanna and Reg. Later on, she is present when Tobin visits Deanna to tell her to make Abraham head of the construction crew. After he leaves she assures Deanna that her people know what they're doing. When Gabriel comes to the house to inform Deanna that Rick's group are bad people, Maggie is spying from the stairs.
Maggie is first seen staring at Gabriel while he is hanging his clothes out. Reg appears to tell her Deanna's on the porch. Maggie then talks with Deanna about the meeting, and that if it includes sending Rick away, it won't work. When Deanna ignores her warnings, Maggie storms off, but Reg comes after her and assures her that he will speak up at the night gathering. She then talks to Glenn, telling him she'll solve the situation. Later on at the meeting, she speaks up for Rick, saying that her father respected him and "he's just trying to protect his family" and that the residents want to be a part of the family. Maggie then leaves to find Rick or Gabriel, so they can speak at the meeting. She walks into Gabriel's church to find Sasha pointing a gun at his head. She diffuses the situation and the three end up praying together over the tragedies they have faced.
During a flashback, Maggie checks on Tara to see if she is feeling better. Glenn and Nicholas both walk into the infirmary bloody and bruised and Glenn tells Maggie and Rosita that walkers attacked him and Nicholas in the woods, which she doesn't seem to believe. While Maggie appears at Rick's meeting where they discuss the plan to get the walkers out of the quarry, Glenn asks Maggie if she can stay at Alexandria and keep an eye on Deanna who is still dealing with the loss of Aiden and Reg. Maggie tells Glenn that's not the only reason that Glenn wants her to stay and Glenn says he knows. While everyone is doing their job helping to build the wall, Maggie explains to Tara about Nicholas that he got Noah killed. When Tara asks Maggie why can't she just exile Nicholas from Alexandria, Maggie reminds Tara that she was on The Governor's side of the prison assault that resulted in Hershel being killed. Maggie tells Tara that Glenn saves people no matter if they are good or bad and that Tara is one of the most important people to her in the whole world. They both hug but soon after a few walkers come into the wall construction site. Rick wants the Alexandrian's to fight the walkers but they are too scared and so Maggie with the other's help, kill the walkers.
Maggie is first seen with Deanna outside in Alexandria. She tells Deanna that they want to plant flower seeds outside. Maggie then explains to Deanna that her planting the seeds is very similar to Reg's wish for Alexandria; he wanted Alexandria to thrive and grow. As they are digging to get ready to plant some seeds, The Wolves begin their attack on Alexandria. Several wolves throw molotovs into Alexandria with one of them hitting a guard on the look-out platform; Richards. Deanna and Maggie witness Richards being burned alive which disturbs Deanna. Maggie tells Deanna to stay behind her as Maggie begins to defend Alexandria. Maggie is later seen with Deanna when they run into Spencer, who just went to turn off the truck horn. Maggie informs Spencer that she is going to go help the others. Spencer tells her that he'll stay and protect Deanna. Maggie is later seen in the aftermath of The Wolves' attack on Alexandria. Maggie is deeply saddened as she walks and sees the many bodies of Alexandrians and The Wolves. Maggie finds Richards, who has turned. Maggie walks over to his reanimated body and puts him down.
While Rick returns to Alexandria with half the horde following him, Maggie sets out to find Glenn. As she is gearing up for her mission Aaron stops her telling her it's nearly impossible for her to make it back alive. Maggie tells Aaron he can't stop her, so he joins her. They take the sewers as he did when it first started. While in the sewers they encounter two walker who were stuck in sludge and break free to attack them. Once they reach the end of the tunnel they come to a gate in which Aaron attempts to open it, but Maggie stops him. She reveals to Aaron that she is pregnant begins to break down, accepting Glenn's fate. When they get back to Alexandria, Maggie and Aaron erase Glenn and Nicholas' name off the "In Memory" wall showing they still have hope.
Maggie is first seen at the lookout post, anxiously scanning the horizon for a sign from Glenn. When Everyone in town looks up as a bunch of green balloons float into the sky Maggie runs over to Rick and cries out "That's Glenn!", filled with hope. She watches as the watchtower comes down and crashes on the walls of the Alexandria safe zone.
Maggie is first seen running from the herd of walkers attacking Alexandria. She manages to take a few out with her assault rifle before running out of ammo. Reaching the lookout post, she starts scrambling up the ladder to the top. The walkers pull the ladder down but Maggie manages to grab onto the edge, pulling herself up to safety. Later on when Glenn and Enid scale the wall, she is seen to still be trapped on the tower, with a mass of walkers surrounding her.
Maggie is seen when Glenn and Enid attempt to save Maggie before the watch tower collapses. She tries to stand up and help Enid, whilst also screaming for Glenn to get to safety before he gets devoured. Glenn screams back to Maggie to get over the wall, but Maggie refuses and uses her only bullet to help Glenn. When she thought her husband was about to be devoured, Abraham and Sasha appear and kill all the zombies round Glenn.
She was there when the entire of Alexandria took a stand and defeated the horde of Zombies. She is also seen sitting on a bed in the infirmary with Glenn bringing a bowl over.
Maggie finds Enid alone and encourages her to pitch in and help get Alexandria back on track. She tells Enid that she's around if she wants to talk.
Maggie is discouraged that it will still be some time before Alexandria's new garden yields any crops. Glenn assures her they'll be okay. Maggie, Rick, Michonne, Glenn and Abraham board the motor home with Jesus. Maggie guards Jesus as Rick's group searches inside. They find four of Jesus' people, one of whom is injured. Maggie meets with Gregory to discuss trade options.
Gregory condescends her and notes that Alexandria is low on provisions. He offers to help on the condition that Alexandrian residents work at the Hilltop, insinuating Maggie would be very desirable in the community as a "smart, beautiful woman." Maggie rebuffs him and points out that the Hilltop is low on ammo and medication, proposing they help each other.
Gregory, insulted, ends the discussion. However, Maggie realizes she's in a position to negotiate for even more, telling him that Negan will continue to demand more provisions and will eventually deplete the Hilltop unless her group stops him. She says her group will kill the Saviors, but only in exchange for half of the Hilltop's supplies.
Gregory begrudgingly accepts the offer. In his medical trailer, Harlan performs an ultrasound on Maggie. Glenn and Maggie smile when they see the fetus and hear it's heartbeat.
Maggie is present at the church meeting where Rick convinces the Alexandrians that they need to fight against the Saviors. Later, she tells Glenn that she is going with them to the Saviors' compound because although it wasn’t her idea, she set the deal up with the Hilltop. She assures him she will stay on the perimeter.
When the alarm is activated at the Saviors' base, Maggie insists on going with Carol to help the others. They argue about Maggie's decision to come along despite being pregnant, and Carol kills a walker that was approaching Maggie. Carol then told her that she was "staying here".
At the end of the episode, a woman reveals to the group via walkie-talkie that they have Carol and Maggie.
Maggie and Carol are in the woods, with the alarm at the Savior's base blaring. Maggie says they should go and help, when a Savior sneaks up behind her, only to be shot in the arm by Carol. Maggie holds a gun to his head. They are ambushed by Paula and are forced to drop their weapons. We see Rick and Paula's conversation from Maggie and Carol's point of view, where Maggie tells Paula their names, and tells Rick that her and Carol are okay. Michelle, a Savior with Paula, proceeds to pull Maggie's coat over her head so she can't see. Her hands are bound and she is gagged before being taken to another Savior's base.
Maggie tries to free herself, but when Paula returns she quickly returns to her position. When Carol starts hyperventilating, Maggie persuades Paula to ungag her. Carol begs Paula not to hurt Maggie, revealing to her that she's pregnant. Paula taunts Maggie, to which Maggie responds "I'm choosing something different".
Maggie tries to persuade Paula to talk to Rick, but to no avail. Donnie wants to kill Carol, but Paula doesn't listen. He strikes Paula and goes towards Carol. Maggie trips him up with her feet and headbutts him. He kicks Carol multiple times in the stomach, only to be knocked unconscious by Paula. She orders Maggie to be taken out and questioned by Michelle. She asks Maggie where they're living. Maggie vomits on the floor. Michelle tells Maggie that her boyfriend was blown up and that she too was pregnant. Maggie tells Michelle that she isn't "planning on dying today". Michelle grabs her gun and continues to question Maggie.
Later, when Michelle leaves, Maggie again tries to free herself. Carol, after escaping, reunites with her and undoes the tape binding her hands together. Maggie insists they must kill their captors. Maggie makes a trap, tying a now zombified Donnie to a pipe. When Molly enters, she is bitten on the wrist by Donnie. Maggie grabs Molly's gun and bashes her head in with it. Making their escape, Carol and Maggie encounter many walkers impaled on spikes. Paula catches up and shoots at them. Carol aims her gun at Paula and Maggie urges Carol to shoot her. Paula escapes when a walker latches on to Carol. Maggie puts down the walker and gives chase, only to encounter Michelle. Maggie attacks her and Michelle slashes her shirt with her knife, and a furious Carol shoots Michelle in the head. Carol and Paula wrestle, which leads to Paula being impaled and bitten on the face by a walker. Maggie looks on in shock.
After burning the newly arrived Saviors alive, Maggie puts down the impaled walkers, including a reanimated Paula. When Rick, Glenn, Rosita and Daryl arrive, Maggie tells Glenn that "they're all dead." When Glenn asks her if she's okay, she responds by saying "I can't anymore".
Maggie and Glenn are showering together, where Glenn notices bruises on her back.
Outside, Maggie has collected a bin full of guns and suggests they create caches of guns throughout the community in the event of an attack. She watches as Glenn and Michonne go after Daryl, and Glenn looks back at her in the van's mirror.
Maggie stops by the pantry to eat lunch before starting another shift. Enid insists on taking Maggie's shift so that she can rest.
Later, Enid arrives at Maggie and Maggie asks for her help. Enid cuts her hair, and she smiles as she examines her new look. "I have to keep going, and I don't want anything getting in my way," she explains. Suddenly, she doubles over in pain and collapses to the floor, screaming as she clutches her stomach.
Maggie is being transported to the Hilltop to see a doctor. Getting weaker every minute, Rick tries to comfort and reassure her in her pain. After all the roads are blocked by the Saviors, the group is forced to carry Maggie on a stretcher. They are captured by the Saviors. Negan emerges from a van and teases Maggie, threatening to kill her. He then chooses a random victim of the Alexandria Safe-Zone and kills him/her, though the victim is not shown.
Maggie cries as Abraham is beaten to death by Negan with his baseball bat, Lucille. As punishment for Daryl attacking Negan, he turns and hits Glenn over the head twice as Maggie screams in horror. Negan taunts Glenn - whose left eye has popped out of its socket due to the force of the blows - as he tries to speak to his wife. "Maggie, I'll find you," he says as she sits in shock. Negan then bludgeons Glenn to death as a devastated Maggie cries for her husband.
After Negan and his men leave, with Daryl taken away, the group sits on the ground in silence. Maggie struggles to her feet and walks towards Glenn's body. She tells Rick and the others to go back to Alexandria to get ready to fight Negan and she will get to the Hilltop on her own. Rick explains that they have Daryl and a lot more manpower than they do. She blames herself for the group being out there and insists on going by herself until Sasha steps in and says she will get her there and keep her safe. Maggie tells her she is taking Glenn with her and kneels beside his body. Too weak to lift him, Carl steps in and offers to do it, and Rick tells her that he was their family too. She hugs Carl and cries as the others take Glenn away.
Maggie is then seen at the dinner table during Rick's vision, sitting next to Glenn and their son.
Maggie’s eyes flutter open. She looks weak, but healthier than before. She’s in Dr. Carson’s medical trailer at The Hilltop. He informs her that she suffered from Abruptio Placentae, a separation of the placenta from the uterus, but that the baby is fine. He advises her to rest and remain at The Hilltop for the duration of her pregnancy.
Maggie exits the trailer where Sasha is waiting for her. She asks where Glenn and Abraham are buried.
Maggie kneels by Glenn's grave. Sasha gives her Glenn's pocket watch; Maggie places it on Glenn's grave as a marker. Sasha offers to stay at The Hilltop with Maggie. Jesus approaches, and places flowers on the graves.
Gregory arrives and demands to know why Maggie's people didn't wipe out all The Saviors, and whether they know about his deal with Rick. He tells Maggie and Sasha to burn Glenn and Abraham's bodies and orders them to leave The Hilltop by morning.
Maggie asks Jesus why Hilltop residents burn their dead. "What do you have to remember them by?" Jesus simply says "Us." Jesus leaves and Sasha calls Gregory an idiot. "He's a coward. They're more dangerous," Maggie says.
Maggie and Sasha wake up in the middle of the night and see fires blazing outside. Music blares from a parked car. The Hilltop gates are wide open. The trailer's door and windows are locked so they climb out through the sunroof. They see walkers flooding in through the front gate, drawn by the music. As Sasha and Jesus kill the walkers, Maggie shouts orders to Hilltop residents, organizing their defenses. She drives a large tractor into the courtyard, mowing down walkers. She plows the tractor onto the car, destroying it and putting a stop to the music.
The next day, Gregory thanks Maggie and Sasha for saving The Hilltop but still refuses to let them stay. He slyly offers to work something out with Sasha one-on-one. "Go to hell," Maggie says. They're interrupted by the sound of Saviors in the courtyard. Gregory tells Jesus to hide Maggie and Sasha in the foyer closet, but Jesus hides them in Gregory's bedroom.
When Gregory finds them in the closet, he yells at Jesus, who stands up to him and forces him to let Maggie and Sasha , threatening to reveal Gregory’s deal with Alexandria, which would strip him of his plausible deniability. When Gregory calls Maggie "dear", she punches Gregory in the face, reaches into his pocket and takes Glenn’s watch, which he stole from the grave. "This is our home now. So you'll learn to start to call me by my name. Not Marsha, not dear, not honey. Maggie. Maggie Rhee," she tells him.
As the Saviors leave, Jesus tells Maggie and Sasha that initially, he couldn't imagine anyone but Gregory running The Hilltop. "I can now," he says cryptically. Maggie leaves and finds Enid sitting at Glenn's grave. They hug.
Enid cooks dinner for Maggie in Jesus' trailer. Sasha joins them. Maggie gives the pocket watch to Enid, saying they don't need objects to remember their dead. "We have us,” she says. They sit around the table, take each other's hands and pray.
Maggie sits alone by Glenn's grave. She assumes her post at the Hilltop's front gate with Eduardo. Gregory approaches and warns her not to let her popularity with the Hilltop residents get to her head. Maggie taunts him, telling him it seems as though it bothers him.
In their trailer, Maggie eats an apple pie that Sasha brought over. She tells her that a resident's daughter thinks Maggie should run for president of Hilltop. Maggie asks if Jesus is still around as she wants him to pick up school supplies for the children, but Sasha reveals he left for a supply run that morning. Maggie leaves to get milk.
Maggie stands guard at the Hilltop gate. She sees something in the distance and smiles before calling Sasha and Enid over. The gates open and she greets Rick with a hug and tells him that she and the baby are fine. He admits that she was right from the beginning – they have to get ready to fight. As the others reunite, Maggie hugs Michonne. Together, they all stride towards the mansion.
Maggie and the group meet with Gregory in his office at the Hilltop. Gregory brushes them off when Rick tries to convince him to fight the Saviors for failing to take out the Saviors and he orders them to leave, pretending to not know him. They exit the library and Enid leads them to the courtyard, where a group of Hilltop residents offers to join the fight against the Saviors. Maggie stays while Jesus takes Rick's group to meet Ezekiel.
Maggie regards the bustling Hilltop community. She gives residents knife-throwing lessons, in preparation for the war against the Saviors. She and Jesus work on plans for the future of the community. Gradually, the people of Hilltop begin to look to her as a leader.
Maggie sees Daryl sitting alone outside the trailer. She brings him a plate of food and places her hand on his shoulder before heading back inside.
Maggie apologizes to Jesus for taking over his trailer. He tells her he feels close to people for the first time since she, Sasha and Enid arrived. Maggie leaves to speak with the blacksmith about making spears they can trade with the Kingdom for body armor.
Kal yells that the Saviors are coming and Maggie realizes she doesn’t have enough time to make it to the escape hatch herself. Enid guides her and Daryl to a root cellar to hide. They hide behind some shelves and wait for the Saviors to leave.
As a Savior takes some supplies from the cellar, Maggie stops Daryl from killing him. When he leaves, they come out of their hiding place and Maggie remarks that Daryl nearly killed a Savior unnecessarily. She tells Daryl that ever since he arrived, he has avoided her. She begs him to look at her and he starts to cry before apologizing. Maggie insists he is not to blame for Glenn's death, and that Glenn thought he was one of the good things in this world. She admits she wanted to kill the Savior too, that she wants to string them all up and watch them die, but they need to win. She hugs him and asks him to help her win.
Maggie offers Eduardo farming tips as Gregory observes their interaction. Eduardo refers to Maggie as "boss lady" as she tells him her plans to transplant a blueberry bush from outside the Hilltop gates. She explains blueberry bushes can produce for over 40 years, and that they should start acting like they'll be around that long.
Gregory joins Maggie as she uproots a blueberry bush outside the Hilltop walls. He proposes they present a united front to the community. Maggie agrees to consider his offer and asks Gregory to keep watch until she is finished. He contemplates killing Maggie while her back is turned, but ultimately decides against it. A walker emerges from the woods. Gregory charges at it but backs away at the last minute. Maggie kills the walker as a second walker attacks Gregory. A passing group of Hilltop residents witness Maggie saving Gregory, who defends him and says it was his first time. A resident remarks that's not what Gregory told them.
In one of Sasha's flashbacks, she and Maggie sit in a field. Later, she asks Maggie why they are there. Maggie replies "for this" as they stare at the sunset.
In the present, Maggie reviews Rick's plan with Jesus and Enid as they watch over Judith. She considers their options and contemplates joining the fight at Alexandria. Jesus remarks that he's happy she is the one making the tough decisions. Enid places Glenn's pocket watch in her hand as she leaves the room with Judith.
Maggie arrives with the Hilltop fighters just in time to gun down a Savior that was about to kill Rick. She yells orders to the fighters as Negan notices she is alive and well.
After the Saviors and the Scavengers have fled, Maggie and Jesus track Sasha down in the woods. Jesus pins her down and Maggie's eyes fill with tears as she puts her down for good. She later attends her funeral.
Maggie proudly tells Rick that she was not the one responsible for the events which saved Alexandria; it began right at the start, when Glenn made the decision to save Rick in the tank in Atlanta. It was that heroic choice that paved the way for everything to come.
In another flashback, Maggie and Sasha continue to sit in a field, watching the sunrise. They turn to each other and smile.
Maggie is present with Rick gives a rousing speech to the united communities, reminding them they’re fighting for their futures, for a bigger world. He vows to stop the Saviors and kill Negan, the only one who truly has to die. Maggie and Ezekiel echo Rick's sentiments. Ezekiel chimes into Rick's speech and gives kingly rally cry to everyone. Then, it's Maggie's turn, pleading with everyone to keep faith in each other. If they do, "the future is ours. The world is ours," she promises.
The caravan arrives in a large field, where members of all three communities are waiting. Maggie insists on joining the initial phase of the fight, despite her pregnancy and says she has been fighting since the farm and can't stop now. Ezekiel offers to let Maggie see the Kingdom's doctor, but Jesus assures him they'll retrieve Harlan Carson, who was previously taken by the Saviors. Rick vows to relinquish leadership and follow Maggie after the fight is over.
Rick's group guns down two sniper lookouts at the Sanctuary as Dwight nochalantly walks inside. The caravan arrives at the front gate, parking in formation to create a wall with the metal sheets retrofitted onto each vehicle. Maggie gives the signal and the group raises their guns toward the sky, shooting in unison. Negan steps out with his lieutenants.
Rick tells Negan's lieutenants, Dwight, Simon, Gavin, Regina and Eugene, that he will let them live if they surrender. No one accepts his offer.
Negan tells Rick that he lacks the numbers to win a fight against the Saviors. At Negan's command, Simon brings Gregory outside. Maggie and Jesus aren't surprised. Gregory declares that the Hilltop stands with Negan and the punishment for fighting against the Sanctuary is banishment for the offenders and their families.
Maggie tells the Hilltoppers to do what they need to do but no one leaves. Maggie yells back, "Doesn't look like anyone is going does it!" Gregory starts again but Jesus cuts him off, saying that the Hilltop stands with Maggie. Simon pushes Gregory down the stairs after deciding he's no longer useful.
Rick tells Negan's lieutenants to make up their minds; he begins firing when they don’t respond. Negan's crew runs for cover in different directions. Rick's group continues firing, blowing out the Sanctuary windows. The herd approaches, drawn by the explosion. Rick's group continues to spray bullets at the Sanctuary, then retreats to their cars for evacuation. Daryl leads the herd on his bike. Maggie hops in a car and sounds the horn.
At the Hilltop, Maggie meets Gregory at the gate when he arrives in the car he took from Gabriel at the Sanctuary. He pleads to be let back in. and asks him what he's doing back at the colony after what he did. Gregory lies about finding the car empty, and arrogantly tells her that he built the Hilltop long before Maggie arrived. Maggie furiously tells him to shut up and stop pretending he didn't try to sell the community out to Negan. He protests that he was trying to save lives but Maggie tells him the people are fighting for a better life. She calls him a coward, accusing him of only looking after himself and reveals that Kal told them that Gregory wanted to warn Negan of the Militia's intentions to fight. Kal overhears Gregory insulting him, and gives him the middle finger.
Maggie refuses to let Gregory in and sends him on his own outside the walls, but changes her mind when he desperately pleas for mercy, saying that he was scared and unsure if they could win in a fight against the Saviors. He apologizes and makes a scene. After listening to his pathetic cries, she reluctantly lets him in, telling Enid that he isn't worth killing, yet. Just then, Jesus' group arrives with the captured Saviors. Gregory immediately insists that they can't stay, but Maggie sends him away while she talks to Jesus. Tara says she agrees that they shouldn't be allowed to stay, and Maggie notes that with families and children at the Hilltop, the arrangement would be dangerous. Jesus insists they can't kill those who surrendered, and makes plans to keep them under armed guard in two empty trailers.
Maggie is seen getting the note from Aaron and is surprised that he brought Gracie, who was brought back from the outpost. Carol and Rick read notes from Maggie which inform them that they have Saviors as prisoners at the Hilltop. Maggie and Rick read the note from Carol which discuss the Kingdom being ambushed and murdered and her, Jerry, and Ezekiel being the only survivors. Rick's note pushes everyone to continue, citing Sasha as the first, with more sacrifices coming after. Rick says that they meet at Sanctuary in two days to end this.
Afterwords, Maggie confronts Jesus hands out food to the Saviors and orders him to stop giving away the Hilltop's food. Gregory suggests killing them but Maggie sends him away. Maggie is frustrated with Jesus and criticizes him for creating this situation. He is shocked that she would consider killing these men.Maggie says everyone option's in the table and Jesus questions what are they fighting for, Maggie says they must end the Savior and Negan.
Maggie and Gregory chat in Gregory's office, with Maggie sitting in his chair. He insists, again, that what he did with Negan was in the best interest of the community. Maggie accuses him of being scared. "My motives were pure," he promises he can help with the situation. She is disinterested but he says he can tell her she needs someone to tell her to follow her gut. "You're the shephard," he said. "You can't have wolves wandering around amongst the sheep."
The next day, Enid tells Jesus that Maggie has ordered the Saviors inside. They have built a holding area to keep them. "We'll keep the prisoners here," Maggie said. "We'll feed them. We won't mistreat them." However, they won't accept anything less than cooperation. Gregory says they shouldn't have people at the Hilltop who they can't trust. She agrees with him, which prompts Eduardo and Kal to put him in the same prison. Jared attempts to escape while being escorted inside of the prison, but Maggie strikes him down. He warns her about getting people killed, but she strikes him with her rifle again.
In the office, Maggie is holding baby Gracie while Aaron talks with Enid about the loss of Eric and the weight he is carrying as a result. She says the feeling doesn't go away but it helps to do something about it. Jesus enters and thanks Maggie for doing the right thing, but is disappointed when Maggie says she's only keeping them alive because she believes they are bargaining chips "They're alive because we might need them," Maggie said. "Jesus, if we don't, we can't let them live."
Maggie is first seen with Jesus and Neil in a car as she and a large convoy of Hilltop residents are heading presumably towards the Sanctuary to meet up with the Alexandrians in the hopes that the Saviors will surrender. Maggie spots a fallen log which has blocked the road. Jesus assures her that trees can do that, but Maggie is skeptical and quickly realizes that the Saviors are responsible. Maggie radios to the back of the convoy and tells them to turn around. No response is given as the Saviors apprehend the convoy, and a truck parks in front of Maggie's car. From inside, it is revealed that Jerry was captured by the Saviors and is badly injured. He is then dragged outside along with a wooden box. Simon jumps out of the truck and states what a "damn nice night" it is.
Simon orders Maggie and her convoy to give up their firearms to the Saviors or else Jerry and everyone else will be shot. Maggie asks Simon how the Saviors managed to escape their predicament. Simon doesn't repond directly, but eventually explains that it was Eugene who made it all happen as music begins to play from a distance, stating he was skeptical about the man at the beginning but saw that Eugene proved himself worthy in the end. Simon explains that the Saviors want to transform the Kingdom and Alexandria into new outposts to replace the ones they lost, with the Hilltop retaining a semblance of autonomy, acting as the primary source of raw materials and food.
He then gives Maggie two choices; either the Saviors kill Jerry on his knees, drag Maggie to the Hilltop in the wooden box, which the Saviors have made sure won't suffocate whoever is in it, then kill Maggie in front of everyone and finally place her head in front of the Sanctuary as a warning to other troublemakers. Then the Saviors lead the walker herd to the Hilltop and pull off the same trick Rick and Maggie's people tried to do against the Saviors. Or, Maggie and her convoy can head back to the Hilltop, unharmed, however, with the cost of one of their people's lives. Simon then shoots Neil dead and demands her to make a choice, to which Maggie in distress agrees, so that the Saviors won't have to do anything. Before the Saviors depart, Maggie asks the Saviors for the wooden box. Simon agrees to this and leaves.
Maggie and her convoy return to the Hilltop. Gregory, still locked in a cage, tries to talk to her about getting why she locked him in, but Maggie shuts him up. Furious, Maggie orders Eduardo to take Dean out and executes him for giving Jesus trouble back at the outpost and for Simon killing Neil. She then orders Jesus to fortify the walls, increase their guards and bury Neil, and says that all remaining residents will begin tending crops the next day. She declares that the Hilltop will be the last stand of this war. Maggie puts Dean's body in the coffin-like box and scrawls a message on the cover: "We have 38 more. Stand down." She instructs Kal to leave the coffin where the Saviors will find it. While walking away, she attempts to not cry at this new order.
Maggie observes the Hilltop as it rebuilds and fortifies. Maggie watches over Gracie, before Dianne enters the room with an inventory log. Food at the Hilltop is becoming scarce, and Dianne fears that rations will have to be cut down further to be able to survive the next week; the situation is worsened if they take the captive Saviors' rations into consideration.
Maggie is approched by Gregory through the barb-wire fence, reasoning that he should be released for good behavior, but Maggie refuses to set him free. Alden then approaches the two, speaking up for the rest of the Saviors and attempting to come to an agreement, suggesting that the prisoners be allowed supervised freedom every once in a while for a few minutes each. Again, Maggie refuses, and reveals that they are removing their rations for a few days, much to the shock of the Saviors and Gregory.
Maggie later witness Daryl and the Alexandrians arrive at the Hilltop gates, with Daryl bearing the news of the town's downfall and the loss of Carl. Maggie and Carol look devastated and Enid is brought to her knees in sorrow, with Maggie confronting her.
Siddiq approaches Maggie to personally thank her for her hospitality. He inquires about whether the Hilltop holds an infirmary, revealing to Maggie that he has medical experience and wishes to help the community. She directs him to the trailers. As he leaves, Maggie surveys the community.
Maggie returns to the holding pen and agrees to Alden's deal, allowing a maximum of two Saviors at any given time out of the pen for work, exercise and, if the need arises, medical attention. Gregory, while grateful for her decision, is worried about an impending attack by the Saviors and implores that Maggie consider an evacuation, fearing losing the war. She remains strong, telling Gregory that with all they have now, there is little possibility for loss. Her attention is brought to the gates as Rick's arrival is announced.
Maggie is seen when Rick and Michonne arrive at Hilltop and reunite with Judith. She watches Rick ride out in the truck. She asks Rosita if he can come back from the loss of Carl. Rosita asks, "Have you come back? We just keep going." She thinks it will be harder when everything is over and quiet but Maggie and Rosita agree it will be easier when Negan is dead. In the distance, Maggie spots some sort of shiny flag hoisted above a small crate.
Rosita retrieves the crate and gives Maggie the attached note, which offers them a "key to your future" in exchange for food and records. The note includes coordinates for a meeting point. Maggie worries that it's a trap, but Michonne suggests they investigate. Maggie suggests they simply miss out on the help rather than risk dying. Enid agrees. Michonne will go out on her own and Rosita will join her. Maggie relents and agrees to go to the meeting point.
Michonne, Maggie and Enid drive to the designated meeting spot and find two women waiting by a van. A third woman wearing a suit steps out and introduces herself as Georgie. Her bodyguards are Hilda and Midge. Georgie explains that she can give Maggie valuable knowledge in exchange for food and records. Maggie, however, shuts the notion down, and rules these people are coming back to Hilltop.
Michonne enters Maggie's office. She wants to make the deal and let them go before the Saviors arrive. Maggie, however, wants to keep all of the food. Enid wants to take their stuff or someone else will. She thinks people will die here and they should care more about themselves than anyone else. Michonne, however, points out that Carl rescued Siddiq and now they have a doctor and friend. Enid blently tells her Carl is dead because of it. Michonne tells her to leave, and she argues that Carl wanted them to be better people. Maggie reflects on this.
Maggie gives Georgie a crate of food and records, and Georgie reciprocates with a sizable portion of the food in her van, having seen the desperate state of Hilltop and knowing that it needs the supplies more than she does. She gives Maggie a binder full of plans for windmills, water mills and other schematics to help create a community, the key to a future that she had been talking about. "Build this place up," she urges Maggie.
During the night, Maggie is signaled by Jerry when he spots a Savior convoy approaching. Maggie radios Simon and demands to speak with Negan. Simon informs her that Negan received her care package in the box which he gave to her. He tells her she and her people are gonna die for that. Maggie threatens to kill the thirty-eight Savior prisoners unless Simon retreats. Simon writes off the prisoners as "damaged goods" and proceeds with his attack.
Daryl races up on his bike with a machine gun and guns down several Saviors. The gate opens and they follow him in. A pick up truck is loaded with Saviors. Maggie orders everyone to open fire. The battle begins in earnest.
Maggie orders Dianne to bring the prisoners to her office. Alden, offers to help defend Hilltop, but Maggie ignores him and he is taken inside. Maggie looks around for Negan, but doesn't see him.
After succeeding in driving the Saviors off, Maggie and Rick run after Simon, Dwight and the Saviors as they escape in their vehicles. Maggie says that she wanted all of the Saviors dead, but Negan most of all. Rick tells Maggie that he saw Negan earlier in the day and tried to kill him. Instead of being angry, Maggie thanks him for trying.
Hilltop cleans up in the aftermath of battle. Maggie tells Enid that they lack the resources to fight off another attack. Maggie watches Jerry dig graves for the dead. She cuts Alden's bonds and tells him to bury the dead Saviors. Alden insists those aren't his people anymore, but he is glad she sees them that way. Dianne commends Maggie for being a good leader. Maggie shows regreat when she tells Dianne, that she sent Negan that body in a box to make him mad and to lure him here because she wanted Glenn's grave to be the last thing Negan saw, even if it came with a cost. Maggie regrets not killing Negan.
That night, Maggie checks in with the Hilltoppers as they prepare beds on the floors of the main house. Wesley tells Maggie that he's doing well after Siddiq and Dr. Dana stitched up his wound. He tells her Maggie is a better leader than Gregory as he only cared for himself and nothing more. Maggie watches everyone pile onto each other and sleep on the floor inside.
Suddenly, screams ring out from the House. Inside, Maggie sees people getting eaten by walkers. Daryl rushes in to help people. Ezekiel watches. Siddiq rushes in and tries to stop blood flow as Rick chops off an arm. Michonne and Jesus put walkers down inside. After killing the remaining walkers. They notice that the walkers were all their people Carol informs Maggie and everyone that Tobin wasn't bitten. Rick recalls that Negan's bat was covered in walker blood, leading them to realize that the Saviors used their weapons to infect them.
Outside, Siddiq wrestles with walkers. Alden rescues him. Maggie finds him and he explains to Maggie that the Saviors escaped after Henry opened their pen. He points out that some Saviors stayed behind to help.
The next morning, Maggie watches Jerry and Jesus bury more bodies. Maggie has remorse for luring the Saviors here in an effort to kill Negan. Rick walks away as everyone stands near the much larger graveyard.
Maggie is seen in her office with Dianne, Daryl and Rosita. Dianne reports that they don't have enough ammo to fend off another big attack. Presuming the Saviors are low on ammo themselves, Daryl suggests they fight them hand-to-hand. Rosita points out that Eugene is probably making ammunition for the Saviors.
Maggie helps out with errands and tasks around Hilltop. Later, Gregory returns to the Hilltop, giving them the map to warn them of the attack, before being place back in his cell. Maggie gives Rick the map and asks him what they’re going to do.
Maggie and the group discuss their plan of attack. Michonne wonders if they can trust intelligence delivered by Gregory. While preparing for battle, Alden tries to offer help to the departing members of the Militia, Maggie refuses and makes it clear that although the Savior defectors are allowed to stay at the Hilltop, they are not considered part of the Militia.
After Rick's scout team kills Lance's group and finds the map, Rick radios Maggie with the new ambush location indicated on the map.
Following the map, Maggie joins Rick's group as they witness a massive walker horde in the distance and continue on. They end up in a large field where Negan taunts them over a public address system. Negan reveals he has Gabriel at gunpoint, their traitor Dwight is a prisoner, and that his people are ready to fire. He counts down from three, as a firing line of Saviors appears on the ridge line of the hill, ready to shoot down Rick's group.
However, as they fire, their weapons all backfire due to Eugene's purposely faulty ammo, killing or injuring many including Negan and rendering the guns ineffective. Maggie and Rick's army open fires at the Saviors. Defeated, Laura and the surviving Saviors surrender to Rick's army.
After Rick slashes Negan's throat, Rick orders Siddiq to save Negan. Maggie screams in anguish and demands that Negan has to die for killing Glenn, but Michonne holds her back. Rick orders the Saviors to return home and proclaims that Negan's rule is over. He points to the massive herd in the distance and declares that they must unite to fight the walkers, the real threat.
After the defeat of the Saviors, Alden tells Maggie that he would like to stay to help build a stronger community, as he felt he never belonged to the Sanctuary, while also thanking her for giving him a new life. After a moment's consideration, Maggie agrees to let Alden stay at the Hilltop and help build up the community.
Back in her office at the Hilltop, Maggie privately talks to Jesus and Daryl. She is angry at Rick and Michonne, believing that they were both wrong for keeping Negan alive. Together, the three allude to later rectify this error once the Hilltop has time to regroup and fortify.
During the year and a half that passed since the end of the war, Maggie had her son and named him after his late grandfather, Hershel.
Maggie and the group go to the Smithsonian in Washington D.C, to search for a covered wagon and farming equipment. Inside, Rick tells everyone to be safe and the group separates.
While returning to the main stairs, Maggie tells Michonne and Carol that Gregory called for an election at the Hilltop and lost, making Maggie the rightful leader. She also mentions how they need to find farming equipment to help the Sanctuary.
Shortly after, the whole group reunites and gingerly uses ropes to drag an old covered wagon down the stairs and over the glass floor. The glass finally gives way and Ezekiel falls through it, dangling by the rope. Before the walkers can bite him, Daryl shoots at one and Rick and the others finally pull him to safety. Carol joyfully kisses him to celebrate.
The group leaves D.C. and prepare to head back to their own communities.
On the road, Rosita and Daryl catch up with everyone to inform them that the main bridge is out due to a storm. Rick tells Tara, Gabriel, Aaron and Anne to head back to Alexandria and the rest will go to an alternate route and spend the night at the Sanctuary, ignoring Maggie's request of seeing Hershel sooner.
In the woods, the wagon gets caught in the mud as walkers appear from the bushes. It finally budges and everyone rushes to gather the supplies until the walkers overwhelm them and they're forced to leave. Ken runs back to free his horses but is bitten in the arm by a walker and then kicked in the ribs by the horse.
Siddiq and Enid try to save him but Ken succumbs to blood loss and dies from his injuries. A saddened Maggie sobs by his side before putting him down.
At night, in Hilltop, Maggie breaks the news of Ken's death to his parents, Tammy and Earl. An emotional Tammy scolds Maggie for getting her son killed, reminding her that she voted for her in the election. Earl tries to calm her down but Tammy doesn't listen and criticizes Maggie's decision to supply the Saviors. A shocked Maggie offers to help with the funeral but Tammy declines and denies her from being present. However, a saddened Maggie holds Hershel and watches Ken's funeral from the balcony.
Later, Maggie takes Hershel out for a stroll and runs into Gregory, who tells her someone may have defaced Glenn's grave. Upset, she rushes towards the grave and is attacked by a hooded stranger, who also knocks over Hershel's stroller. Enid intervenes but gets pushed to the ground hard and is knocked out. Alden and Cyndie grab the assailant and Maggie rips off his hood to reveal a drunken Earl.
Maggie rushes over to Gregory's place and accuses him of trying to get her killed. He angrily reminds her that he built this place and tries to stab her with a knife, but she overpowers him and holds it to his neck.
The next day, Daryl, Michonne and Rick arrive at the Hilltop to find the workers building gallows. Later, Rick asks Maggie to visit Alexandria but she says she can't because Negan's there. He asks for her help in fixing the bridge, which includes providing supplies to the Sanctuary. She says she'll only agree if the Saviors agree to provide the labor and fuel. Rick says he can't and he's obliged to help, but Maggie disagrees and reminds her that he never ended up following her as he promised, but now he should.
In the night, the residents gather around the gallows as Maggie explains to her people that the punishment fits the crime. She looks on at Gregory, who has a noose around his neck and is sitting on a horse. Gregory pleads for someone to stop this, but no one moves. A couple of kids show up and Michonne yells for Maggie to stop but it's too late as Daryl smacks the horse and it rides off, leaving Gregory to hang to death to everyone's shock.
Maggie tells her people that she wants this to be the last time they do something like this. A shocked Rick and Michonne look on as Maggie then orders Daryl to cut off the noose.
In Hilltop, Maggie rides a horse as Michonne arrives. She tells Maggie that a planned food supply delivery hasn't arrived at the Sanctuary, but Maggie claims that the ethanol didn't arrive either.
Jesus confirms they have a surplus of food but Maggie counters that without a working plow it may not last long. Michonne suggests they let Earl out to repair it but Maggie scoffs and says she's fine with waiting for the fuel to show up from the Sanctuary.
Later, Maggie plays with her son while Jesus tells her that they should consider implementing official rules to handle situations like Earl, Negan and Gregory. She finally agrees.
After the conversation, Maggie allows Tammy to see her husband. She talks to him about his mistakes and forgives him. Maggie listens on and gets a little emotional. Later, she talks to Earl herself. He mentions how he became an alcoholic and doesn't remember seeing his son for the first time. Maggie then leaves.
A while later, Maggie tells Michonne she's open to creating common laws. She explains that her father, like Earl, used to drink and also deserved a second chance but Gregory got several chances and didn't change. She mentions that Earl has been released and will pay his debt but she doesn't regret executing Gregory.
On the road, Maggie and Kal are bringing food to the Sanctuary when they are stopped by a small group of Saviors, who question her about their missing people. Jed steals a tomato out of the back and takes a large bite. Maggie says she'll mark him down for it while the other Saviors let her pass. Suddenly, they notice a zombified Justin stumbling onto the road.
At the camp, the Saviors are furious with the news of Justin's death. Alden promises they'll get to the bottom of it but is punched in the face by Jed, who claims he isn't one of them anymore. Carol steps in with her gun at her hip, stopping Jed.
From a side of the crowd, Maggie watches as the Saviors start accusing him and Anne of being the culprits. They grab axes to retaliate when Rick rides in the middle of the group with his gun drawn and warns everyone to back off. After they disperse, Maggie asks Rick who he thinks killed Justin, and he looks at Daryl.
Later, in the woods, Maggie and Cyndie head to an abandoned house with a noisy roof which has attracted a small group of walkers. Maggie distracts them as Cyndie investigates. Another group of walkers breaks out of the barred-up front door and Maggie runs over to kill them. Cyndie nearly gets bit until Rick, Daryl and Rosita arrive to save her.
They check on Beatrice over the walkie but receive no response, so they try to find her and locate her unconscious in the woods. When she wakes up, she tells them she was attacked from behind and that Arat is missing.
At the camp, Rick implores his team to find Arat before the Saviors find out and leave, delaying the bridge construction.
On the woods, Maggie admits to Daryl that what Rick's doing is right for the future. They find a walker with a bolt in it and Daryl says, "I know who took Arat."
At night, Daryl and Maggie arrive at the "Final Warning" building to find Cyndie and a group from Oceanside holding up Arat. Cyndie emotionally reveals that this was their former settlement and recalls how Arat and the Saviors wiped out her people. Justin killed Beatrice's husband while Arat killed Cyndie's brother without mercy.
Cyndie says that they went along with Rick's rules because they thought they had to, until Maggie executed Gregory, "showing them the way". Since that moment, they have been killing the Saviors responsible for wiping out Oceanside.
Arat starts crying, claiming she had no choice but Cyndie reminds her how she smiled when she killed her brother. Arat begs Daryl and Maggie to help her but they walk away as Cyndie stabs her through the back of the head with a spear.
The next morning, Maggie tells Daryl that they gave Rick's way a chance, but it's time to see Negan, implying she is finally ready to enact her revenge against her husband's murderer.
In Hilltop, Maggie looks from her balcony with Hershel and then passes him to the babysitter. Later, she grabs a backpack and sneaks a crowbar into it, planning to head to Alexandria to take care of Negan. Jesus tries to convince her not to go but she instructs him to look after the Hilltop while she is gone.
A while later, on the way to Alexandria, Maggie notices the several walkers killed before by Michonne.
On the way to Alexandria, Maggie stops her horse so she can kill a walker furiously, bashing its head with the crowbar as Dianne watches. After she finishes, she cleans up her weapon and continues towards Alexandria.
Later, Maggie arrives outside Negan's cell with a crowbar before getting stopped by Michonne. She tells Michonne that Negan should have died under that tree and Michonne asks if this is what Glenn would have wanted. "I don't know what he would want, because I never got to say goodbye," Maggie says. Michonne eventually gives her the keys to his cell and Maggie walks in. Negan chuckles at her as Maggie demands he get on his knees.
Negan taunts Maggie about killing Glenn and begs her to kill him. She opens the cell and slams him against the wall as he begs for death. He sobs and admits he wants to be reunited with his wife Lucille. She tells him to get back to his cell because he's already worse than dead. Maggie walks outside and Michonne seems pleased she didn't kill Negan. Suddenly, they get word about the shooting at the camp.
On the bridge, as Rick limps away before collapsing, he hallucinates as Maggie, Daryl, Carol, Ezekiel, and the others rush past him to kill the walkers. Michonne stops and sees Rick's wound. She reminds him she fell in love with him because he's a fighter. After killing the walkers, everyone stops to watch them. Michonne tells Rick how much she loves him and he tells her, "This isn't real." Michonne tells him to wake up and he does, now alone on the bridge.
The walkers approach as Rick hobbles away. He makes it across the bridge and turns around hoping to see the walkers fall through, to no avail. A walker makes its way inches away from Rick before getting shot in the head by a crossbow bolt. Rick watches as Maggie, Daryl, Michonne and the rest arrive nearby.
Maggie and Michonne hatch a plan to divert the walkers but Rick won't allow it. He notices the dynamite on the bridge, takes aim, and says to himself "I found them," before shooting and igniting the dynamite. The bridge ignites and explodes as Maggie and the rest can only watch in horror. Assuming Rick is dead, Michonne screams out while Maggie and Carol comfort her.
At some point, during the six years after Rick's supposed death, Maggie, along with Hershel, left Hilltop to join Georgie's group. Jesus reads a letter that Maggie sent through Hilda and Midge and tells Tara that Maggie is doing good. Its revealed that Michonne is unaware that Maggie is gone until Siddiq tells her. Siddiq explains that Maggie left with Georgie and is helping with some new community far away, but that is all that he knows. Michonne has also been avoiding Hilltop out of fear of seeing Maggie and what Maggie would do to her if they ran into each other again.
