So as I'm watching the Walking Dead for the millionth time, I'm still left wondering what the purpose of The Wolves was to the story? They had left marks around the area that our main cast was at, but nothing really materialized until they attacked Alexandria, and by that point, they had all been killed except for about 6 of them I believe.
My question is, what was the point of their storyline? Was it just a mere distraction or just a "bad guy" to fill up time until they figured out who their next bad guy was going to be? It was so short lived, that it seems kinda sloppy and just thrown in there for some action.
I've seen the entire series so far, just re-watching it, so I know everything that happens after this, but maybe I'm missing a connection that I just didn't really see.
