3Dr. Carson Traded For Crate Of Aspirin
In “The Other Side,” Simon and the boys came to Hilltop and took their most precious resource: Dr. Carson. In Simon’s attempt to make it okay, he basically traded their skilled doctor for a crate of Aspirin.
Gregory asked to speak with Simon alone and in order to further compromise, Simon said that Gregory could come into the Sanctuary whenever he wanted to visit the doctor. This obviously doesn’t help Maggie, seeing as she’s supposed to be dead.
At this point, Gregory will not be able to get Dr. Carson back, but Maggie is more willing to do whatever it takes.

While Maggie is still very early on in the pregnancy, she’ll need a doctor in six months or so. It’s unclear how long it will take Rick’s war to get up and going, and they also can’t let the doctor get hurt during a battle.
If they attack the Sanctuary (meaning, more than just Sasha), then there’s a possibility Negan could hold the doctor ransom, but both sides should try and protect the doctor, seeing as he’s the only one they have left.
So Maggie needs to separate him before this happens.
