In the next shot, Glenn and Daryl are bound and gagged as two men stand behind them. Again, we can’t be absolutely sure, but Glenn and Daryl’s escorts are likely the hazmat suit-wearing goons from last week’s teaser. How do we know? Well, they’re sporting gas masks.
Lastly, the camera cuts to Gareth as it looks like he is addressing Rick (and possibly Glenn and Daryl as well). Over the course of all of these quick shots, a voice (likely Rick’s) can be heard whispering, “These people are my family and if you hurt them in any way, I will kill you,” and as those last words are uttered, a sly smile comes over Gareth’s smug face.
There’s likely a ton of clever editing going on here, but it certainly seems like we’re in for an epic Rick vs. Gareth face-off. Just listen for those clanking swords in the background — we’re way past pow-wow time!
