      But the Saviors started it when they started extorting places like Hilltop.

    And this is the lesson they learned for playing heroes in the apocalypse or instigating a war with an enemy they knew nothing about.

    Rick's group brought it on themselves. They began murdering people willy nilly and are now shocked they're fighting back.

    Rick's a bad leader.

    The saviors are evil...but they didn't pick this fight.

True, they got over confident. They never dealt with an organization larger than their own.

I've always thought Rick was a bad leader. He's a military/war leader, not a peace time leader.

Not sure what they could have done different. Letting gangster extort people wasn't an option, because they need to trade to survive.

And the Saviors would have eventually come knocking on Alexandria.


It is a lawless world and they have had more then enough exposure to evil humans, The Governor and Terminus being big examples.

So they feel the Hillop people need to be helped and Hilltop in turn would give them supplies.

The problem was the lack of overall intell on the Saviors. What they attacked appeared to be more of an outpost then a main base. Then they got spotted and had to deal with the hostage takers.

The Saviors I suspect knew of Alexandria or swiftly found out after the attack.

The Saviors are gangsters extorting and killing as they please and they do not listen to reason. That group that intercepted Daryl, Abraham and Sasha were going to kill them if Daryl didn't end them with a missile. (LOVE that scene!)

So now they have to live under the "peace of the gun" as it were and keep paying protection money as it were to stay alive.

Rick must unite with Hilltop, the Kingdom and any other communities and form an army to take down the Saviors. They need numbers and they need intel to form a plan.
