UPDATED: Carol and Maggie Are Taken Hostage by the Saviors in New Walking Dead Promo
Carol's finally back on The Walking Dead, but she's apparently already being taken out of commission, at least for the time being. A new international promo for The Walking Dead previews this week's confrontation with Negan's group, who are called the Saviors in the comics, and spoils that Maggie and Carol will both be taken hostage:


UPDATE - 03/02/16 02:52 pm

The tweet was deleted (which may speak to whether it was actually spoiler-y or not), but here's a low-quality version:



In the promo, Maggie and Carol are apparently taken hostage, as a woman tells Rick and Glenn to lower their guns while they, Michonne, Father Gabriel, and others have taken over the Saviors' compound. They haven't been called the Saviors on the show yet, but we know that Rick's group is going to attack Negan's group this episode, so we assume it's some version of the Saviors (and according to a rough translation from Google, the caption of the video says, "Negan has war on his pants. Who will survive? You can see next week in The Walking Dead," so make of that what you will).

But if these are the Saviors, then it's interesting that a woman seems to be taking charge, as there were no women with positions of power in the comics. In fact, the Saviors were very much defined by having men as members, especially since they used rape as an aggression tactic. But women are perfectly capable of being evil, so why not?

The Walking Dead's "Not Tomorrow Yet" airs on Sunday at 9pm on AMC.
