(AMC)

While it's hard to say whether or not Huck (Annet Mahendru) meant to split up the group, that's nevertheless exactly what's happened. After a gruesome murder puts a heavy load of suspicion on Silas' (Hal Cumpston) shoulders, he decides that he's better off alone. Following him is Elton (Nicolas Cantu), who was already planning to accompany Silas, but doubled down on his decision when he learned that Hope (Alexa Mansour) was responsible for his mother's death. Now the two of them are making their way alone, but the fans all know they won't be gone forever. The question is, what could possibly get them to turn back?

It takes a lot for the ultra-loyal Elton to permanently split from his friends, but being told that one of them is the reason his mother and unborn sister died might have done it. Hope might have been a child in a stressful situation when she shot Elton's mother, but it's a hard thing to overcome. As for Silas, he still believes that he's responsible for Tony's (Paul Adsit) murder — even now, he's not sure whether or not he actually did the deed. He's left the group worried he might one day harm someone else — and the fact that everyone turned on him so quickly has to have hurt.

At this point, the only thing that could turn Silas around is tangible proof that he wasn't responsible for Tony's death — and there's still a chance for that to happen. Percy's (Ted Sutherland) body hasn't been found yet, and if he's somehow still alive, he can let Silas know what really happened that night. As for Elton, things aren't quite so cut and dry. He's going to have to find it in himself to forgive Hope, somehow, and with the CRM closing in on Hope and the rest of the group, by the time Elton changes his mind, it might just be too late.

The synopsis for the ninth episode, entitled, 'The Deepest Cut', reads, "A series of setbacks cause a member of the group to reevaluate their role in the mission; someone makes a surprising discovery; a startling revelation casts everything in a new light." That episode is immediately followed by 'In This Life', whose synopsis reads, "A divided group struggles to reunite; others set their sights on the greater good."

'The Walking Dead: World Beyond' two-episode Season Finale begins on November 29 at 9 PM ET, on AMC.
