'The Walking Dead' Season 7, Episode 14: Who Did Rosita See?

However, the bulk of the episode is Sasha and Rosita's Thelma and Louise journey to take out Negan at the Savior's compound. Given Martin-Green's recent casting as the lead for Star Trek: Discovery it's quite obvious that this will be her final act and she'll either die in next week's episode or be the big finale death. At least a cowering Eugene would make it a clean death for her. Jesus and Enid catch her, and he tries to talk her out of her "mission". And Gregory's just drinking and remaining the toad that he's always been. She runs away, frustrated, until she spots the silhouette of Daryl. He had a similarly inspiring message for an equally shattered Daryl, too: "We can make it together. So I think if we get it right, it will be an incredibly satisfying ending to Season 7". And it's met with Maggie's statement that "Daryl is one of the good things in this world". Whew, the dust in the room! As it stands, Negan could kill Sasha before help arrives. Her emotional check out and PTSD after the loss of Tyreese and Bob was real and believable. Did she die? Probably, but they're not letting us know until next episode.

There are just two episodes left in Season 7, with the finale airing April 2. I do hope that AMC learned from its mistakes and that there won't be any monumental cliffhangers at the end of episode 16. Daryl is so wracked with guilt he can't even look at Maggie, even when the two of them are forced to hide from the Saviors in the Hilltop mansion's basement.

And Sasha is very much alive!

In light of that history, Sunday's moment is even more meaningful.

One photo shows Sasha crouched in a corner of a cell. I love working with them and I was excited I was able to for just a quick scene in this episode.

Maggie and Daryl scramble to a cellar, and Rosita and Sasha slip out through a secret tunnel and under the fence. "And I've got yours", Rosita replies. It was so contrived I was actually confused and wondered if Eugene has somehow spotted them and was trying to send them a message. I hate Simon so much and yet find myself laughing at some of the things he says and does. Sasha wants vengeance but also cares about protecting Maggie and helping the Hilltop.

Meanwhile, Rosita and Sasha's journey starts out just as slow and obnoxious as you could have expected; they leave when the Saviors arrive, Rosita is as unpleasant as ever, and they spend really long time trying to find a vehicle, which made me worry that the show was going to drag this dead-end storyline out. They have some brief zombie-killing adventures stealing a auto from an old used vehicle lot, and some tension over Sasha wearing a necklace that Abraham gave to her (which Rosita had actually made for him).

Enid tells Sasha she's going to tell Maggie - but doesn't get a chance. But she loves Maggie too. Not even the possibly endearing vision of Grembly-Gunk hanging out of your Matrix-style coat pocket can save you from the boos and hisses of your loyal Mullet Nation.

However, no matter how well executed their road to Negan was it's hard to overlook the stupidity in the plan to begin with. Except he didn't want to go back to a life of being called a coward and bullet making.
