Warning: Spoilers Ahead. Do not read if you haven't seen Episode 5 of season six, 'Now'. You've been warned...

1. How did Rick get out of the RV?


Yes, we know he ran really, really fast. But the last time we saw our favourite anti-hero, he was knee deep in hundreds of walkers in a dodgy pick up truck.


2. Seriously, is Glenn dead or what?

If Rick's getaway is any indication, Glenn's survival isn't the craziest thing we've heard in TWD land. (Merle even survived a pending walker attack by cutting his arm off back in season one).


3. What exactly was Deanna drawing?


Are those plans for Alexandria the sequel? She wrote "Dolor hic Tibi Proderit Olim" in Latin, which translates to: "Be patient and tough, someday this pain will be useful to you." I've got a feeling things about to get very interesting for Deanna.


4. Where is Enid?


Most of us smelled a wolf after that surprise attack. But maybe she really is out there all alone, feasting on turtle heads like it's NBD.


5. How is it Carl is such a pathetic fighter when he's the apocalypse's resident teenage badass?

You can kill your own mother in walker form but can't throw a decent punch at Ron?


6. How awesome is Jessie?


Since killing that Wolf with a nail scissors and "taking care" of her zombie neighbour without hesitation, she could be the new Carol. (Be warned producers: never kill Carol, myself and all the rest of the Internet's zombie nerds will revolt).


7. What's up with Ron, in general?

I don't trust him. Is that shooting practice foreshadowing?


8. Maggie is pregnant!

This isn't a question, sure, but YAY. Finally, some good news for her. And Judith definitely needs a pal.


9. Did Maggie's speech confirm to the audience we'll never find out what happened to Glenn?


"It's over. I don't know if he's alive, he would have shown me by now, that's what Michonne said. I don't get to know what will happen, I don't get to know why it happened; what I did, right or wrong. Not now." If his wife doesn't expect closure, this does not bode well for the rest of us.


10. . Did anyone else think one of these walkers bears more than a striking resemblance to Ed Sheeran?



11.. How does Deanna not know how to kill a zombie?


Major kudos for effort though. Nice throwback to Rick's bloody rant in the streets of Alexandria at the end of season five.



12. Are Maggie and Aaron BFFs now?

Because it's adorable.


13. Who knew apocalyptic danger could get everyone so in the mood?


Jessie and Rick finally kiss, Denise and Tara smooch it out. And was it just me or is there some chemistry between Spencer and Rosita?



14. Since when  is Rick so pessimistic about his own crew?

He's never given up hope so easily when it comes to his people. "The reason I wanted to wait was...Glenn. We don't know if he's still out there. And Daryl, Sasha, Abraham. I wanted them back by now. I wanted those things gone." THEY ARE COMING BACK RICK.


15. What was that little fence shake, Deanna?

Didn't you hear Rick say to keep it down? Taunting the undead will not court you favour with anyone.


16. Whose blood is that?

After two dull episodes, a new element of intrigue is very welcome.
