Somehow Rosita is made aware and she tries to escape. Rick is enraged and starts shooting at Negan’s army. She’s probably not going to be able to kill Negan on her own, so the most likely outcome is that she’ll be captured and/or killed by the Saviors. She’s looking at the end goal more than anything else.
This recap contains spoilers for The Walking Dead Season 7, episode 14, titled “The Other Side.” . It’s far too hard to do so! Negan killed Abraham. That guy has got to go. After the outcome of the previous episode, Carol and Morgan returned to their fierce personality and vowed to take down the Savior’s empire along with King Ezekiel and the Alexandrians. So long as Gregory is there, you can’t have confidence with a straight face in just about anything that those people have got going on. An emotional Rosita reveals that she regrets never telling Abe she was glad he was happy, and it’s a sort of catharsis for them both.
With only two episodes remaining this season, Kang and Satrazemis do a good job of milking the tension and drama of what’s becoming a slow-motion trainwreck for our heroes. Per usual, there was a lot of chit-chat about nothing much – that crew is notoriously tight-lipped, but we did glean a few tidbits… And not only did Mags reassure Daryl that she didn’t blame him, she gave him a sense of objective: “We have to win”, she said. Nothing completely out of character or egregiously stupid happened in the first two-thirds of this entry.
Sasha and Rosita’s bonding trip to the Sanctuary was the A-storyline this week, as they put their shared histories with Abraham behind them in a shared desire to avenge his death.
“You’re one of the good things in this world”, she insisted. First you get good at spotting the obviously awful parts of your work-the bad sentences, the clumsy plot swerves, the crummy jokes.
And that was Dwight’s first sympathetic moment too, because up to that point he’s done all these bad things and you suddenly take a step back…
Whatever the case, this is crunch time for The Walking Dead. It has style and tone and mood to spare. But, as always, things didn’t go quite as planned.
That caught us up to the present, and a surprise visit from the Saviors that sent Maggie and Daryl scurrying for a hiding spot in the root cellar – keeping in mind that if either of them is found, they’ll be in all kinds of trouble. I love those moments because really.it’s something that Rosita made for Abraham. One of ‘The Walking Dead’s main characters just confirmed his sexuality by coming during a heart-to-heart convo with Maggie.
Sasha is pretty tough too. Did we really need a heartfelt scene with Enid?
Appearing on the show’s panel at PaleyFest in Los Angeles (via Comicbook), a fan asked Lincoln how he would write and direct the final moments of The Walking Dead.
Amid the chaos of the Saviors arrival, Sasha takes Rosita through a secret passageway hidden in the log pile.
So I was all set to dismiss this entirely until the finally ten or fifteen minutes.
