If it is correct, it is pretty spoilery.
Although that makes sense, it's too obvious and telegraphed. Someone else is probably behind all of this. My guess:

Spoiler:
dumbass Ron, who has been out of the gates and probably led the Wolves in as a revenge for his dad being killed by Rick and Enid showing interest in Carl instead of him. He didn't know what he was dealing with cause he is a fucking dumbass and almost got himself killed for it. But Enid is too obvious. I think she's simply not scared anymore of dying.

Yeah, I noticed her "That's how we were able to..." thing, too. Depends on what she meant. Was she referring to how she and Carl could slip out of Alexandria unnoticed? Or was "we" meant to be her and the Wolves?

I kept waiting for her to show her hand, but it didn't happen.

Wasn't the shot toward the end with Aaron and the photos meant to imply that it's HIS fault the wolves found the place? He lost his pack, with the photos and who knows what else in it.

That's what I took the backpack to mean. I doubt Enid is the reason or is some spy. It seems too much of a give away.

Was that HIS pack? The way he flipped through the pictures, it seemed like it was someone else's pack and he was learning there was a leak from the inside. Unless he was flipping through thinking "I better check to make sure all my pics are still here!"

It's the pack that he uses as a selling point to come to Alexandria. It's him realizing that his pack brought the wrong element to them.

I am not buying "Morgan as bo staff master" at all, but with Michonne running around with a katana, and now Morgan running around with a staff, I'm just waiting for two more people to show up with sais and nunchucks to complete the group.

Fucking Morgan. What is this high moral shit with psycho killers? If that's how he will act, just kill him.

This. He's Donatello at this point so he probably just jumped down the sewer and swam over super fast.

Other than that this season is off to a great start.

Yeah, its just easy plot conflict that we have seen before. And will probably see again.

It's quite possible Morgan is the only one that took off to Alexandria, while the rest stay behind to deal with the Zombies.

Did Morgan finally turn at the end? It looked like he killed the guy.

But still, he was walking around at the end, with a gun attached to his hip, so at least he has changed a bit.

It was his pack, but I wonder if it was his BF that went out and got captured.

this episode brings me back to the last episode, Morgan pisses me off because things arent the same in humanity and you need to adapt. But noooooo, he has morals in a zombie apocalypse

Well he is wearing a gun, so maybe he is shifting his thought a little bit.

Don't you get sick from eating a raw turtle? Saw that in Naked and Afraid. The turtle was not cooked well and one of them got sick.

At the end of last season when Morgan helps Daryl and Aaron escape from the wolves trap. You see one of the Wolves pick up Aarons pack and finds the pictures. It's right after they bring the guy in the red pancho to the fences by the trap.

Yes, they're covered in salmonella so chances of getting sick are good.

yeah, I think Enid and her just survive somehow implies she did whatever she could to survive out there including eating raw turtle. She may have fallen in with the wolves but maybe she left them when things got weird.
She is looking out for herself because no one else is. I doubt she helped the wolves since the pictures implied that is how the wolves found out about Alexandria.

I don't think Enid is tied to the Wolves. Seems like they were setting it up as she lost her parents and Didn't want to lose anyone she cared about again so she doesn't get close to anyone. Seems like a then almost every character go through especially Michonne having to choose Rick and Carl instead of wandering with pets.

Also, when Enid was talking to Carl about this place is to big to protect, I think she was referring to how her and Carl were able to sneak out without anyone knowing meaning anyone can sneak in. Since she wasn't able to say goodbye to her parents, she was just making sure to say goodbye to Carl if he dies.

Agreed. I said to my wife, the writers probably thought "okay, we have this really violent episode coming up. Who should direct it?" And the choice was obvious. She does what she does extremely well.

Agreed.

Yeah, that makes sense.

I fully expect Morgan to just "nope" out of the show in the next episode.

This episode was a great recovery from last week, IMO.
Except Carl getting close enough to the one Wolf-guy, for him to grab his leg. stupid Carl should have stayed in the house, like he was told.
