'The Walking Dead' Season 7 Finale: A Major Twist Uproots Everyone's Plans

(She also almost accomplishes her mission of taking Negan out after turning into a walker and almost biting him.) In the end, Maggie - in a season of devastating losses - winds up having to be the one to put Walker Sasha down for good as she is poised to take over as the leader at the Hilltop.

Rick defiantly told Negan that he still planned on killing him. We got several more Sasha flashbacks along the way of both Abraham and Maggie, who also lost her love that same day in Glenn.

It was the last sacrifice made by Sasha as she did what she could do to save Rick, Rosita, Maggie, Michonne and the rest of her crew from certain death. After the fight with Negan subsides, everyone goes looking for her in the areas surrounding Alexandria. In the seventh season, Sasha's character arc had come to a complete circle with her coming to terms with Abraham's death and realizing her goal.

When Negan finally goes to open the casket to show Rick and Alexandria that she's alive, Sasha has always been dead and is already a walker.

Following the gunfight, Negan lines Rick and his son Carl up on their knees in a callback to the season seven opener in which Abraham and Glenn (Steven Yeun) were killed off. The group effort delivers a victory for the good guys as the Saviors as well as Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) and her Garbage People retreat. It won't have much in the way of spoilery content but shows just enough to get you totally excited.

What will come of the second poison pill Eugene made? Morgan has already announced that he will return next season as the series takes on Kirkman's "All-Out War" arc. With Rick and the Survivors recruiting other communities to join their fight against Negan, we'll see the steps toward that war come together in the finale. The song was released in 1973, and it gained added significance years later when Spike Lee used it over the credits of the biopic Malcolm X.
