The Walking Dead s06e12 Episode Script

Not Tomorrow Yet

1 Previously on AMC's "The Walking Dead" You're well-equipped, but your provisions are low.
I'm from a place that's a lot like this one.
We might be in a position to help each other.
This is Gregory.
I'm the boss.
They still have Craig.
Negan? They said they'd return him to us, if I delivered a message to you.
You give us supplies, we'll save Craig and take care of Negan and the saviors.
Done.
We need to know what you know about Negan's compound.
We need you to come.
It's gonna be a fight.
We'll win.
We have to.
Well, I came along to find a little peace of mind Neglected all my duties Stepping off that straightened line Now I just sit by my front door Filled with indolence and sounds It's like I'm watching the weeds grow on my brow And I had a pure potential and a soiled white shirt With love enough to kill me, but was unsure of its worth And though the night is sweetened By some rising of the moon I've lived enough to know The battle's never through You pass something down, no matter where or how Will there be weeds or wildflowers affixed upon your bows And there's a crooked burning cigarette rolling on your tongue Will there be weeds or wildflowers when you're done? Remember, you travel through the desert You travel to the sea Looking out on some horizon, asking what you made of me And we all hang around with a free untold mind While all of our branches entwine And as I watch the brick erode within a day The leaves changing colors and the loft fills with hay And as a blade of sunshine cuts across my chest The blood beneath boils with unrest You pass something down, no matter where or how Will there be weeds or wildflowers affixed upon your bows And there's a crooked burning cigarette rolling on your tongue Will there be weeds or wildflowers when you're done? - Hey, Carol.
- Tobin.
You deserve some cookies.
Oh, no, not with the kids as hungry-- No, there's plenty.
I foraged a lot of acorns.
- They're pink.
- Beets.
- Beets? - It's what makes them sweet.
Oh.
I never was much of a beet kind of guy.
Will you just put it in your mouth, jerk.
They're the best beet and acorn cookies I've ever eaten.
Are you screwing with me? No.
Seriously.
They're amazing.
They're back! Get Olivia.
She should inventory what we have.
We'll meet her at the pantry.
- You have food? - Yeah.
Enough for another month.
I need everybody in the church in an hour.
What is it? We'll talk about it.
Rick, what's going on? We're gonna have to fight.
It's been a while.
Weeks.
- Since what? - Since we talked.
That's what we did in that cell? We talked.
Why didn't you tell Rick? Tara, Rosita, Eugene? - Why didn't they? - I told them to keep quiet about it.
Why? Can we just forget it, move past it? You don't have to carry that.
Carry what? You know what I did.
You don't want to tell anyone, it-- it's kind of like you did it, too.
No, it's not.
Just go.
And we can work with the Hilltop.
Maggie hammered out a deal.
We're getting food-- eggs, butter, fresh vegetables.
But they're not just giving it away.
These Saviors, they almost killed Sasha, Daryl, and Abraham on the road.
Now, sooner or later, they would've found us, just like those Wolves did, just like Jesus did.
They woulda killed someone or some of us.
And then they would try to own us.
And we would try to stop them.
But by then, in that kind of fight, low on food, we could lose.
This is the only way to be sure, as sure as we can get, that we win.
And we have to win.
We do this for the Hilltop, it's how we keep this place.
It's how we feed this place.
This needs to be a group decision.
If anybody objects, here's your chance to say your piece.
You're sure we can do it? We can beat them? What this group has done, what we've learned, what we've become, all of us-- yes, I'm sure.
Then all we have to do is just tell them that.
Well, they don't compromise.
This isn't a compromise.
It's a choice you give them.
It's a way out, for them and for us.
We try and talk to the Saviors, we give up our advantage, our safety.
No, we have to come for them before they come for us.
We can't leave them alive.
Where there's life, there's possibility.
Of them hitting us.
We're not trapped in this.
None of you are trapped in this.
Morgan they always come back.
Come back when they're dead, too.
Yeah, we'll stop them.
We have before.
I'm not talking about the walkers.
Morgan wants to talk to them first.
I think that would be a mistake, but it's not up to me.
I'll talk to the people still at home.
I'll discuss it with the people on guard now, too, but who else wants to approach the Saviors, talk to them first? What happened here, we won't let that happen again.
I won't.
Looks like it's settled.
We know exactly what this is.
We don't shy from it, we live.
We kill them all.
We don't all have to kill.
But if people are gonna stay here they do have to accept it.
We need someone on the perimeter keeping watch.
That could be me.
That would be safe.
Safer.
Whatever safer looks like now.
Yeah.
I made that deal.
It wasn't my idea, but I led us into this.
I have to come.
Those things'll kill you.
You got another one? Not for you.
And why is that? 'Cause, asshole.
Okay.
Couldn't sleep either? I never could sleep.
Worried about tomorrow.
You going? No.
You are.
You can do things that-- that just terrify me.
How? How do you think I do those things? You're a mom.
I was.
You are.
It-- it-- it's not the cookies or the smiles.
It's-- it's the hard stuff.
The scary stuff.
It's how you can do it.
It's strength.
You're a mom to most of the people here.
To you, too? No.
You're something else to me.
Well, it's not tomorrow yet.
Packing your stilettos? We'll only be gone a night.
I'm going.
I am, too, but tomorrow.
I'm leaving.
Why? It happens.
Are you serious? This is how I want it.
- Why? - Why are dingleberries brown? It's just the way shit is.
No, no.
After everything we've been through, you are not walking out that door unless you can tell me why.
Tell me! Tell me why! When I first met you, I thought you were the last woman on Earth.
You're not.
You try one of these? They're chewy.
They, uh got some fight in them.
Describe it.
Rectangular building, big satellites on it.
- Any windows? - I don't remember any.
I think they made it so there's only one way in.
Guards outside? Yeah, two of them, at least.
And you don't know how many people they have? No.
Uh, I mean, no.
I saw a place where they stored food.
It wasn't that big, so - You've been inside? - Yeah.
They had us load in supplies one time.
Hmm.
What do you remember? Are you worried? No.
No, it's just I love you, and I just wanted to say it before-- you don't have to say it back.
It's-- I'll say it when you come back.
Heath and I are still going on that two-weeker.
We're gonna leave from there.
Do you want to come? I mean, I can change it so we don't leave from the compound.
We could come back and we could leave from here.
- You know, we're gonna get meds, so - I can't.
- No, I didn't-- I'm-- I just-- I need to be here.
- Yeah.
I'm the only doctor now.
So I can't.
Yeah.
But I want to.
I'll tell you when you come back.
Yeah.
And you didn't see any other rooms? No, it's a big place.
This is the hallway I saw.
There is more.
And every time, they had you bring things into here? Jesus.
We brought a couple spears for them.
Two of the Saviors took them down this hallway.
Now, they must've done something with them because they didn't come back with them.
Maybe a weapons locker, an armory.
Okay.
We get in there, secure the armory, that's how we end it.
That's how Carol ended it here.
But we don't know if they have an armory or where it even is.
Well, we've got a lot of good guesses.
We've done more with less.
We go in at night while they're sleeping.
The guards won't be sleeping.
Like I said, I think there's only one way in and there's no way to bust through that door without waking up the rest of them.
We don't need to.
They're going to open it for us, let us walk right in.
They want Gregory's head, right? We're gonna give it to them.
Aaron, Rosita.
You start here.
We'll peel off every quarter mile, meet back here in a couple of hours.
See what we got.
There's no turning back now.
I could walk.
Maybe run a little, maybe a lot.
I'm not going anywhere.
I wanted to learn and you taught me for a reason.
Why are you still wearing that? It's still who I was.
I think.
And it'll be harder for them to see me in the dark.
I almost told everyone at the meeting.
We're not telling them.
Morgan stood up in that church and tried to talk us out of this.
What's wrong with that? Maybe that he didn't know what the hell he's talking about? That he should take the win that we didn't kick his ass out for hiding that psychopath.
If we told everyone, they'd find out about Denise, you know that.
That hijo de puta tried to stand there and act like we didn't know what we were-- He doesn't want to kill.
We don't want to kill.
We don't like it.
It happens.
I'm not telling anyone.
What do you think? Maybe.
If we, um, cut the hair trim the beard.
If it's dark.
We're gonna kill those people.
Tonight.
Look, I've been lucky.
I haven't had to do it before.
Have you? I've been lucky, too.
You nervous? Have you ever seen something that, um afterwards, you-- you didn't want to sleep and you weren't hungry because when you close your eyes you could see it? - And when you try to eat-- - Yeah.
Me, too.
Killing somebody has gotta be worse than that.
It has to be.
So, yeah I'm nervous.
For the whole thing, man.
For the whole thing.
We're gonna take a look around, try to get a feel for how many people are in there.
We like how it looks, we go in.
A couple of hours before dawn.
The guards outside'll be tired.
Everyone inside'll be sleeping.
We don't like what we see, we head back, make a new plan.
They don't know who we are.
We'll keep Jesus in the shadows.
This is how we eat.
This is how we eat.
We roll out at midnight.
Why is Maggie here? She's guarding the perimeter.
Yeah, but why is she here? 'Cause it's her choice.
I want to stay out there with her.
Well, this whole thing's a race to the armory.
We need as many people inside as we can get.
She shouldn't be out there alone.
She shouldn't be out here in the first place.
Okay.
Good.
She's done with the hair? What've we got? - That one.
- Yeah, that's it.
All right.
Though, it's probably good we're doing this at night.
Something wrong with it? The nose.
Gregory's is a different shape.
He fought back.
He broke your hand, right? Guess there's no reason to be subtle about it.
What? The Saviors, they're scary, but those pricks got nothing on you.
Stop right there! Announce yourself, asshole! It's Eddie from Hilltop! It's done! Step out! Is that it? Yeah! Bring it here, shit brain! I don't want the bag, needle dick.
Will you look at this shit? Will you look at this shit? He broke my hand.
I broke his nose.
That's why he looks that way.
Little bitch broke my nose.
Wah.
Okay, looks like you learned.
I'll get your guy, you'll go home, and you bring us more stuff next week, hmm? Well, well, well.
Look who it is.
Ahh! It's okay, it's okay.
We're bringing you back.
We're bringing you back.
Check the doors.
Find the arsenal.
We take them out.
You still a priest? Rick and Carl taught me about guns, other weapons.
How to contribute.
I'm still a priest.
I lied to my girlfriend this morning.
I, um-- she caught me thinking about something, so I told her that I loved her.
For the first time.
That's how I told her, covering something up.
What were you covering? That I'd done something like this before.
That I didn't like it.
Do you? Do you love her? Yeah.
So, you know what you're fighting for.
Hmm.
Honeypot.
They're in trouble.
Stay here.
- I'm going with you.
- I said stay here.
No.
Damn it, Maggie.
- I have to.
- No, you don't.
You don't have to.
Yes, I do.
What the hell are you doing here? What am I supposed to do? You're supposed to be someone else.
They need our help.
You are staying here.
We need to go.
Get them back to the Hilltop.
What? Your people could be in trouble.
If you get them back, the deal's still on, right? Right? If they get themselves back.
Andy, drive him back to the Hilltop.
Look, if they see you and we don't make it-- We're gonna make it.
And they're not gonna see me.
Are you kidding? Go! Ah! If it wasn't us, it was gonna be you.
The hell? That's one of the locked ones.
I'm gonna cover you.
Do it.
Come on! So, this is the next world.
Drop it.
Drop it.
You, uh-- you gonna kill me, Padre? Padre? "Let not your heart be troubled.
" You're just as dead as me.
"In my father's house are many mansions.
If it were not so, I would've told you.
" You're all dead.
- "I go prepare a place for you.
" - Blood's coming.
Amen.
Hey, you want to just come back with us? Take a couple days before you and Tara go out again? No, man.
I just want to get out of here.
When I was a child, I heard voices Some would sing and some would scream You soon find you have few choices I learned the voices died with me When I was a child, I'd sit for hours Staring into open flame Something in it had a power Could barely tear my eyes away All you have is your fire And the place you need to reach Don't you ever tame your demons But always keep them on a leash Mm-mm-mm-mm What is it? Just-- just want to know which one of them was Negan.
Son of a bitch! Where'd you get the bike? Just do it! Like you did everyone else, right? Lower your gun, prick.
You, with the Colt Python.
All of you, lower your weapons right now.
Come on out.
Let's talk.
We're not coming out, but we will talk.
We've got a Carol and a Maggie.
I'm thinking that's something you want to chat about.
