Magna and her group of apocalypse survivors arrived on the scene in The Walking Dead #127, and while they’re currently being given temporary asylum, do you think Rick should fold them into the community? Can they be trusted? Vote below and let us know what you’re thinking in the comments!

    There’s one thing i’ve learned with The Walking Dead. Trust no one.

    I am curious as to whats next for Rick and the camps. After the Governor, then Negan, there seems to be peace. I do not hope another super villain come to the fore front. I get you need an antagonist, but if it is another sociopath challenging Rick’s authority….does the story loop or (insert endless possibilities).

      If you don’t have the antagonist, then there’s just the walkers, which are more redundant. If we’re just left with emotional/mental drama, then it’s soap opera & will appeal to the likes of Twilight fans (losing me). Feels like we got a good solid mix here & what keeps it rolling is you just don’t know what type of antagonist is gonna show up next & what he/she will do. You also have to look at how the survivors are changing, so their reactions to what’s next are unpredictable (who knew Rick was gonna give Negan a free pass after he swore to kill him?). Gov’s dead but Negan’s alive. I see the story as evolving…may have some similarities here and there….but not looping.

      I still feel Carl could possibly go rogue. That, in itself, would be a story well worth following!

      Nope, I’m not bored with it yet & probably won’t be any time soon!

      Negan is alive and well. He might be in jail, but he’s hardly out of the picture. Rick will regret letting Negan live. Just wait.

      I think we’ll have a lot of time before we get another super villain, aside from negans possible escape. I think we’re going to get to explore other aspects of rebuilding a society, that haven’t yet been explored. Some ideas I’d like to see explored:
      – (major) we have communities working together to form a function society, if one community does not need what the other has to offer any more (like the hilltop has a blacksmith, well what if the kingdom brings in a group of survivors and one is a blacksmith. If smithing is hilltops primary contribution, and kingdom no longer needs it, will kingdom feel obligated to share its “cash-crop” or food or bullets or whatever their primary export is.) If they no longer feel obligated to contribute with a Smith of their own, how does that disrupt the balance of the communities. In a sense thus is what negan was doing but in a violent “I value my protecting skills over your food collecting skills”. If this is explored in a non violent, but diplomatic “we don’t want to participate anymore” how does rick and crew handle it? How does that change the dynamic? The leaders may remain amicable but if Alexandria is now running out of food because kingdom bows out of the agreement, citizens will get mad… Its an opportunity to explore the mechanics behind inter”national” (intercommunal?) trade.
      – (minor) everybody is trading and just surviving together, at what point does one person value his/her goods/services over what others have to trade? What kind of currency or trade medium can be established. Basically communism vs. Capitalism (and I don’t mean in the whole 1950’s kill the Russians communism, I mean the survival of the community)
      – (minor) exploring “can a zombie starve” more. I felt that we were getting to a point right before AOW, where the zombies were weaker… Two years later with a limited food supply, what happens?
      – (major) the extinction of gasoline. How long is gasoline volatile for anyway? Are we nearing an age where there is no more gas within a feasible distance from the communities? And please don’t let genius Eugene solve global warming and an alternative fuel source post-Apocalyptically when the world can’t even do it now with labs. That would be a lame cop out. No more gas for cars starting with issue 127 is my hope. Maybe that’s why they’re on horses?
      -Just a question. Where are they shitting? Do they have running water at the hilltop? Does Alexandria have a sewer system or just a septic tank? I get that Alexandria was built for the but the kingdom and the hilltop weren’t…

      I think there’s a lot of places this story could explore before resorting to another super villain. Maybe the next “villain” will be another society of communities who just have a different opinion of killing roamers than rick and crew do and they get pissed and revolt. Maybe a wildfire destroys Alexandria. Hurricane. Tornado. I dont know. I just don’t want to see another super villain yet.

      Edit: btw, sorry if there are any typos, I only have one hand. I try to catch them but.. Some slip through. I type from my phone now.

    Trust has to be earned. If I was Rick, I’d crack–not open– the doors but never let my guard down.

    Something about Magna seems ever so slightly off. I can’t put my finger on it, and I do NOT think she is straight up evil, but no, Rick should definitely not trust them.

    Oh hecky nah you can’t trust her she is too beautiful..

    Magna turns out to be evil. Lets Negan go free. Negan kills her instead. BFF’s with Rick.

    I’m calling it now.

    Magna somehow gets into the prison in Alexandria. Sees Negan, Negan tricks her into thinking Rick and Alexandria are bad people and locked him up, killed his group and stole the supplies or something like that. She lets him out, and Negan kills either Rick or Andrea before escaping Alexandria.

    I think she deserves a chance to earn trust. Having survived for so long she is either
    1) Going to be glad off a safe haven (and knowing there is nothing else left in the world.) Or
    2) Has been in a community before which begs the question why isn’t she still there?

    It depends on what was in that storage container they were transporting

    Shoot no he can’t trust them. With Negan locked up we need a new villain

    Negan really fucked Rick up it seems. It will be interesting to see how this is going to play into this new beginning arc. I also like how Carl just now refers to Andrea as Mom now. With Magna, they seem very capable, and willing to be wherever the walkers aren’t. But with their friend Bernie dying (mostly Kelly) when Jesus and crew came along, I feel there will be some tension there.

    Come on guys if they’re actually having a poll on whether they’re bad or not, they probably are

    I think they can trust her. She seems like a logical choice for a heroine, especially if Michonne is taking a backseat and no longer fighting. I think she represents the new direction in the story arcs, and the future arcs will show more of her, less of Rick and the others.

    its a bit black and white, trust, don’t trust, it goes both ways, and if i was rick i would be letting them in but having them followed and watched, before trusting.

    I think Magna and her group are a Norwegian Black Metal Band and that they’ve rolled into Georgia hoping to play a few gigs while they secretly search for The Devil because everybody knows: The Devil Went Down to Georgia. But Bernie was their drummer. Now that he’s dead thanks to Jesus, Magna’s pissed. They need someone to fill in on drums fast…….Enter Negan. They’ve got to bust him out. But he won’t leave without his Emo Roadie, Carl.

    In the end itl be either Negan to kill rick or save him from this new group. Hell what if Magna is secretly on of Negans wives.

    I’m sort of on the fence about these guys. One the one hand; Magna and her people seemed humble and honest. For example; when she had her first meeting with Rick she was visibly and vocally intimidated by Rick and the safe zone. She was also very modest and humble when asked if she was her groups leader; stating that they’re a “team, and have no leader”–while the other members of her group outwardly proclaim her their leader. But on the other hand, the thing that makes me feel uneasy is the things that were said in the beginning of 127 while Magna and her crew were still on the road. Luke tells Magna that they could make it a few more miles today to which Magna responds “We’re not even sure where we’re going; so there’s no hurry to get there”; seemed sort of fishy to me. Maybe they were banished from their last settlement? Also, after Jesus herds the herd away from Magna and company she says–“They apparently have something worth protecting; which could be exactly what we’ve been looking for.”–that put me off a little. It almost seems like they’ve been hunting for another stable community to attack after having been banished from their previous dwelling.
