After weeks of fan fervor, “The Walking Dead” has finally revealed whether or not Glenn (Steven Yeun) died after falling off of the dumpster in episode three of Season 6.

We see in the opening minutes of this Sunday’s episode that … Glenn lives!

After pulling himself out from under the dumpster, he runs into Enid (Katelyn Nacon), who fled Alexandria after the Wolves attacked. After a brief struggle that sees Enid pull a gun on him, Glenn convinces her to return to the community.

Back in Alexandria, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) is contemplating how to get the walker herd away from the walls. He also confronts Morgan (Lennie James) about Morgan’s unwillingness to kill the Wolves.

He asks Morgan if he really thinks he can live in this world without getting blood on his hands, and it turns out Morgan is grappling with that very question.

On the road back, Glenn and Enid grab a stash of balloons that the group used to mark the path for luring the walkers away, as they could be used as a distraction. Glenn tells Enid she can do more than just survive, that being among the living is the best way to honor the dead.

Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh) also shares her plan with Rick for the expansion of Alexandria. Rick says such plans are unnecessary now, but Deanna encourages him to think of the future.

Morgan then recruits acting-doctor Anna (Merrit Wever) to tend to the wound of the Wolf that Morgan imprisoned. Carol follows him and learns the truth, but whether or not she revealed it to anyone else is unknown.

As episode ends, Maggie is ecstatic when she sees a cluster of balloons released on the horizon, as she knows it is a signal from Glenn. But her joy is short-lived.

The church just outside the walls, which has been slowly crumbling throughout the episode, collapes, taking down a massive portion of the wall with it.
