    Tara and Heath left immediately on their two week run because plot, but was it actually a wise idea? After what just happened with the Saviors, should they have gone back to Alexandria and waited for a bit to make sure there was no retaliation? Thoughts?

    Definitely not. I'm not sure what the urgency was given that they seem to be okay on the supplies front now that they have food. And given the group has just rattled the cages with Negan and the Saviors, it's really dangerous for them to be travelling those roads in a team of two. I wish they'd gone back to Alexandria to regroup for a bit.

    This is a good question to spark debate. I think they did the right thing to go, because as of yet, the Saviors don't know where ASZ is - or at least we hope not; so the 2 leaving would not spark them following because I would hope that they would go in a different direction far from Home. If captured, Heath may crack under pressure, but I don't think Tara would.

    I have no idea why they left so soon. They just got a ton of supplies, and they could really use as many people at home at possible.

    No need to fall back to their old food situation. And for all they knew, their plan worked perfectly. Heath expressed that he just wanted to leave, and I think making himself busy is a way to temper his feelings about the bloodbath.

    I'm in the camp that they should not have gone. Not only did they get a bunch of supplies, they don't know if they got all of the Saviors. Someone could follow them and they could ens up hostages.

    Oh, yes, it's not a smart decision, and we're going to find that out very quickly, but I understand why. Some people throw themselves into work when they undergo trauma. I imagine this is the case for these two.
