Alright, so here we are entering the final chapters of the All Out War story line. Issue 121 of The Walking Dead comic is chapter 7 out of 12 in this run, which technically begins the start of All Out War: Part Two, and is setting up for the end of this arc which has been very intense so far.
In this issue Eugene and the bullet makers for Rick’s side get compromised and captured by Negan and his gang, meanwhile everyone else just seems really tired from this war and unable to stand the casualties it has cost them. It turns out everyone is going to relocate back to the Hilltop with Maggie and her crew.
It seems like there is going to be one last major battle between Rick and Negan that takes place at the Hilltop, which will probably work to Rick’s advantage. It obviously really hurts to have Eugene in Negan’s possession, but I really hope he holds out somehow and doesn’t end up supplying them with the ammunition.
Either way, I think that the reason Negan will be defeated is because of Dwight. We know he’s secretly on Rick’s side, and proved it by killing Negan’s men and giving Jesus the grenades. I think he’s possibly been getting a group together to turn on Negan, which could come as a nice flank for Rick in a battle…
There have been a bunch of deaths so far in All Out War, so I wouldn’t be surprised if we see more in these next five issues. That’s plenty of time for a lot to still happen, and this will probably have a very big and thrilling end because Negan has been the toughest challenge that Rick has faced so far.
Overall, I thought that issue #121 was relatively boring and was mainly set up to kick off All Out War: Part Two, but I’m really excited for the rest of this story.
– Eugene has been caught by Negan. Ouch. Hopefully he holds out.
– Rick’s group is moving to the Hilltop. Could be an advantage in positioning.
– Heath said goodbye to Denise. I think that this will cause him to rage and either blame Rick or aim his anger towards Negan and become a huge asset.
– Ezekiel and his people are possibly leaving, but are considering going to the Hilltop with Rick and gang. I think they’ll head to the Hilltop, or return in a final battle.
