1Father Gabriel’s Mysterious Getaway
The Walking Dead’s “Rock in the Road” premiere opened with Father Gabriel watching over his flock. In what appeared to be a panic attack, Gabriel decided to drop his bible, steal all of the food and knives from Alexandria, and leave.
At this moment, most fans were probably reminded of Father Gabriel’s cowardice when he revealed his backstory to Rick Grimes. In order to save himself, he decided to lock himself up in the church and left everyone else to die outside.
But once he got in the car, it was clear there was more to the story.

At the end of the episode, Rick found a note that said “boat” in the inventory book. Aaron and Rick didn’t tell anyone where they found the supplies, so they didn’t understand how Father Gabriel learned about the boat.
In the final moments, Rick Grimes’ crew was surrounded by a new group but it wasn’t clear why Gabriel had led them to this trap. Rick’s smile indicated that he had found his troops, but there’s still more to the story.
There was someone with Father Gabriel in that car…wait for it.
