Behind the Scenes
Allusions and References
- The kiss between Ezekiel and Michonne is a nod to the graphic novels where the two are depicted as being in a relationship. This seems to be outright alluded to when he tells her something might have happened between them in another universe.
- Daryl: Why help Lydia? You ain't no hero.
- Negan: No. No, I'm not. I'm a sucker. See, I started believing in your way of life, your moral code. Hell, you even gave me a little taste of freedom, just so you could yank it away when I actually did the right thing. You gotta admit, that is pretty messed up. And we both know I appreciate some messed-up shit.
