    It's a part 1 of Q&A so we may get some more later in the week.

    Thanks to TSDF for providing us with these!

    Q. How do Tara & Heath get separated?
    A. Heath and Tara come to a bridge while coming to an end to their 2-week scavenging run with dumpsters blocking the ends of the bridge. They find what appears to be an old camp with dump trucks and sand piles and spent gun shells. A huge sand pile avalanches while extracting something that looks of value, which releases a bunch of walkers that are buried under it. As Heath and Tara fight them to a point, they decide to run for it as the mass becomes too many to fight. Heath runs ahead and Tara gets blindsided by a walker which separates them. There are too many and as she sees Heath getting surrounded she is pushed over the edge of the bridge!


    Q. We are supposed to meet the characters "Jennie" (Sydney Parks) and "Naomi" (Deborah May) this episode. What are their real character names and what group are they with and what can you tell us about them?
    A. Jennie is actually Cyndie, and Naomi is actually Natania. There's also a little girl Rachel (Mimi Kirkland- so cute) who truly is becoming a lethal walker assassin. (Seen in the sneak peek.) They find Tara washed up on the beach. Tara is not taken home with them, but is left out there. Tara ends up following them home without being noticed.

    Since they live next to the ocean, it's no surprise their community we will likely come to know as Oceanside. It will turn out that they had a run-in with the Saviors that killed all the men and older boys when they decided to fight back. So it’s all adult women and children now. They ran off and hid from the Saviors in the woods. Natania is their leader. The entire community is nestled in the woods near the ocean and covered heavily in brush and natural foliage, to where it is virtually unnoticeable from outsiders.


    Q. What happens with Heath?
    A. Tara makes it back to the abandoned campground to where she and Heath were separated. She sees the back of a walker’s head in the distance with dreadlocks in the last place she saw Heath….oh, no….Tara fights and claws her way through the walkers because she just has to know. Upon reaching the dread-dead, it turns around and is found to not be Heath. Relief, but also concern. She went to where the camper truck they came in was parked. It’s gone. No Heath.


    Q. Will Tara make it to ASZ this episode and does she find out about Denise?
    A. Yes. It is implied that Rosita tells Tara about Denise and Tara is seen crying.


    Q. Do we see any of the Alexandrians this episode?
    A. Barely. Only Eugene who greets Tara at the gate and Rosita who talks with Tara back at home getting her up to speed on the situation. Rosita wants weaponry/ammo, but Tara resorts to saying they didn’t find anything…

    The bastards!

    Heath is the new :morales:

    D: D: D:

    Well, it sounds intriguing. I am more interested in seeing Heath again and meeting Oceanside than anything. I am surprised the Q&A is out so soon for this episode.

    Oh wow, wasn't expecting it this early! :yay:

    Color me intrigued. I'm going in skeptical though just because of my overall "meh" feelings towards Tara. Looking forward to seeing Oceanside though!

    I am really kinda shocked we see Oceanside when we haven't even seen Oceanside in the comic yet.

    They must really hope that Corey will be able to come back to the show if they don't kill him off.

    If they're not killing him off, and it turns out Corey can't make it back to the show, I wonder how/if it'll be worked into the story. Will there be a mention sometime in the future about how he is missing and assumed dead, or will it never be mentioned at all? My hope is he can stay on for awhile. Stay tuned...

    I mean they were really in a tight spot with what to do with Heath. Either they could kill him (which would've been unwise IMHO) or write him off temporarily. And making him disappear is as good a reason as any to take him out of the story for the time being. Hopefully if Corey's schedule opens up they can bring him back into the fold. For now, it sounds like Corey just isn't able to commit to both TWD and his other projects (which includes being the lead on a new show and doing theater work).

    If they don't want to kill Heath off, I wonder if they can just recast with another actor.

    Seriously, how did Alexandria avoid The Saviors if everywhere you turn, they are ambushing some group?

    I am looking forward to Corey's version of 24 (one of my top 5 shows ever), so I'd rather he go missing than have died in this episode.

    I remain unable to care about Tara, but this is interesting.

    Oceanside sounds cool, and it looked interesting in the sneak peek.

    I'm disappointed with the news on the ammo. I expected Tara to roll in with some of them, but I guess it will happen in the second half

    Thanks for posting this @Kordas.

    I assume the Q&A is early because it's Thanksgiving week.

    I'm interested in Oceanside. I'm looking forward to meeting these strong women.

    So does Heath abandon Tara with the camper, or is he looking for her? Because that would be uncool, especially since she went back for him? I didn't love what he said about needing to look out for yourself in that promo, but I meant to rewatch it to make sure I was understanding him correctly.

    Poor Tara is returning to ASZ without knowing whether Heath is alive, only to learn Denise, Glenn and Abe are dead.

    This is why I believe Alexandria, even before TF entered the community, was going to encounter Negan and the Saviors in the near future anyway.
