And on Sunday night, The Walking Dead might have given Sasha fans even more confirmation of her impending demise. Proceed with caution, survivors.
"I'm ready to kill him, but I need to make sure you know what this means", Sasha says.
However, when Alexandria presents these weapons to Jadis and the Scavengers (63, to be exact), she lets them know it's not going to be enough.
But back to Rick and Michonne, because that was the heart of this episode. After briefly believing Rick to be dead, the two had a talk about how they may lose one another, and the people they'd lost already. But the madness of Negan quickly put the kibosh on the afterglow, and in the first half of this season two people who had just found each other soon appeared like a exhausted old couple with serious marital issues. Later, they find the remains of a fairground and army hold-up with a bunch of stored food, and a lot of walkers wandering around with guns strapped to their backs. I was giving The Walking Dead credit for functioning the way a TV show is supposed to.
It's that moment where she is incredibly vulnerable, she's shocked by what just happened and how much she feels for Rick and how undone she is by what just happened, by essentially seeing him die. I think that's basically their relationship: They become more human, more whole, with each other; he said and added that Michonne will lead the team in Rick's absence. "You wanna go?" "Nah, we can do this". Getting a little cocky there aren't we, kids? "I want to stay in this flawless state with you as long as I possibly can".
On the upcoming episode of "The Walking Dead" Season 7, "Bury Me Here", it has been reported that the intense fight between Rick and the Saviors will be starting.More news: Deutsche Bank is looking at raising $8.5 billion
The next morning they went to kill all the walkers in the carnival so they could collect their guns but a dilapidated old ferris wheel caused Rick to fall right into a mob of walkers. These two had more sex (or should we call it the nasty - because who knows what's been crawling around in that warehouse-turned-lovenest) in this episode than we've probably seen in the entire series. Is she just stringing them along till she gets what she wants?
While Rosita is wise enough to realize she can't take Negan an his men out alone, she does think one extra well-trained body will be enough to carry out an assassination mission. Albeit an unorthodox one. Will her betrayal mean the seaside community's destruction, or their chance to get much-needed revenge against The Saviours for the deaths of their menfolk? All I can say about Tara is that the toddler who plays Judith was clearly very uncomfortable in their scenes because she had to share the camera with such a bad actor. Because we want to stop the people that are hurting us?
Benjamin H. Smith is a NY based writer, producer and musician who grew up in the 1980's and thus has a deeper understanding of zombie movies than most other people.
As I expected at some point during this Walking Dead episode, it's implied near the end that Tara tells Rick about Oceanside.
In the meantime, I'm slowly starting to care again-after many months of numbness-about who will live or die on this show. Sonequa Martin-Green has to go join the new Star Trek series, so Sasha can't be long for this world. As Rosita discovered in her sulking, guns aren't something that can just be found littering the ground. Will Eugene? Is it really possible that Rick or Michonne could, per their conversation at the end of this episode, make the ultimate sacrifice?
