After scoring one victory after another, there will be more trouble for the heroes of “The Walking Dead” season 8 episode 3. Preview videos of the next episode have teased the plot and major events.

The trailer posted on YouTube shows the surrendered Saviors in chains, being marched under armed guards. One of the Saviors is particularly interested in Morgan (Lennie James), then tries to get under his skin. The exchange almost turns bloody, but then a horde of zombies attack the group.

The attack by Daryl (Norman Reedus) and the others will continue. The people of The Kingdom, however, will face a big problem. King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) had decided to press the attack in episode 2, even though he knew his enemies were waiting for them. The group will pay the price for the mistake in the next episode, as the trailer shows them surrendering. Will there be a prisoner exchange later?

Meanwhile, the conversation between Morales (Juan Gabriel Pareja) and Rick (Andrew Lincoln) continue, with the gun still pointing at Rick’s head. The return of the character took fans by surprise in the previous episode. What was more interesting was the question of where this character had been all this time, and who he is now. Is he part of the Saviors?

There was no animosity between Morales and Rick when they parted ways. So one possible explanation for the gun pointing could be because he had joined the Saviors.

Another sneak peek video of the next episode posted on YouTube shows Gregory (Xander Berkeley) attempting to gain entry into Hill Top. Maggie (Lauren Cohan) will be against the idea of letting a traitor back into the community. Gregory, meanwhile, will make the case that he was trying at diplomacy to save lives.
