Here’s What Tom Payne Has To Say About What Will Happen To Gregory…
Gregory’s “Leadership” Is On The Line
Gregory’s Hilltop leadership is a joke.
Nevertheless, he continues to tow the line, not knowing there are consequences for his actions. In the last episode, Gregory made a truce with Simon and threatened Jesus. Now he’s coming for Maggie.
In a promo (see next page) for the next episode, we see a brief clip where it looks like Gregory has a knife behind his back as he speaks to Maggie, outside the Hilltop fence. In the clip, he seems nice, but he’s certainly up to something.

How do you think Jesus and Maggie should handle Gregory?
