‘The Walking Dead’ Review: ‘Warning Signs’ Is Bleak, But In A Good Way
[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for “The Walking Dead” Season 9 Episode 3, “Warning Signs.”]

Man Is The True Monster

Last week, we saw that Maggie was capable of handling the burdens of leadership; while she may have had a knee-jerk reaction in jailing Earl and denying Sanctuary food, she ultimately did the right thing in freeing Earl and sharing Hilltop’s stores. But her deeply-held anger for the Saviors in general and Negan in particular have not gone away, as the chilling climax of “Warning Signs” makes clear.

The mystery of the missing Saviors is definitively answered this episode, as it’s revealed that Cyndie and the other Oceansiders are the culprits. Their targets haven’t been random — they’ve been disappearing the survivors of Simon’s crew, the ones who executed the men of Oceanside. It’s nice that the revelation isn’t drawn out (most TV shows these days could use more brevity in their
