Mercer’s in deep now that Lance knows about his plans to undermine Governor Milton and her government at the Commonwealth. Also, Princess crosses paths with Carl and the gang on her way out. Where will this leave us for next month? Is the coup over before it began? Not if the covers for the upcoming issues have anything to say about it. Give us your reactions to the issue in the comments below – best response will get sent a Robert Kirkman-signed copy of The Walking Dead Issue 188!
Previously: In the wake of Dwight’s death, Rick is hailed as a hero by Governor Milton…but he doesn’t feel like one. He reconciles with Michonne, still hoping to set the Commonwealth on the path to peace and continued progress. Princess senses things are about to wrong and decides to leave, while back east Magna and Maggie dispatch a team to the Commonwealth, including Carl. Meanwhile, Laura and Mercer strike up an alliance, but when Mercer tries to recruit his fellow guards for a coup, their plot is exposed by Lance.
