'The Walking Dead' Season 10 Episode 12 dropped a major bomb with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) betraying Alpha (Samantha Morton), which is great because that removes one major threat to the Alexandrians and there will be no more weird zombie sex.

However, despite Negan's semi-heroic moment, he may not be in the clear yet. Even with his psychopathic tendencies, Negan single-handedly ended the Whisperer War. That should count for something but whether it will be enough to have his past crimes forgiven remains to be seen.

A video showing the opening scene of Episode 14 'Look at the Flowers' has surfaced online and it's a flashback to the moment Negan made his deal with Carol (Melissa McBride).

Carol assures Negan that if he kills Alpha fast, Carol will ensure that Negan's contribution will not be ignored but it does seem as if she might still betray him.

A sneak peek from the episode shows Carol seemingly being haunted by Alpha's ghost or something of the sort. It appears Carol may be losing her mind and that's bound to cause some bad decision-making on her part.

In all probability, Carol isn't going to honor her end of the bargain and Negan may end up getting killed by Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), which would seriously disadvantage our heroes because there have also been hints that Beta (Ryan Hurst) may be planning to attack and they're going to need all the help they can get.

Preview images released for the episode reveal that Negan will be captured by Daryl, though the former Savior's fate is still uncertain. Meanwhile, another sneak peek from the upcoming episode shows Ezekiel (Khary Payton) bidding farewell to Jerry (Cooper Andrews) before setting out on a new mission.

The trailer and the synopsis for the episode reveal that this mission will be alongside Eugene (Josh McDermitt), who will be setting out on a journey to meet Stephanie. In the comics, she was a resident of a large city known as the Commonwealth, where the final arc of the comic storyline took place.

Here's the synopsis for the episode: "Heroes and villains reckon with the aftermath of the Hilltop fire; Eugene takes a group on a journey to meet Stephanie, with the hopes of befriending another civilization."
