While fans of the show may be begging for the old Carol to return and for Morgan to come to his senses and dole out the punishment, these psyches are not what the characters want. Is there an opportunity to see Jesus and Aaron couple up given their flirtation? She is straight up one of the strongest people I know. Group home. This isn’t like that though.
“I don’t feel like he’s playing a game”. He’s always had a hard time getting close to anyone, he says, “neighbors, friends, boyfriends…”
Maggie was supportive as ever. and anyone who’s not better keep it to themselves, because Rovia is not one to be messed with.
Abraham may have been the master of one-liners, but he did Rosita and Sasha a great disservice when he dumped the former after becoming fixated on the latter. Sasha calls her “the future of this place”. In the final scene, Sasha charges in, to the sound of bullets, while Rosita waits nervously outside. until she sees the unmistakable silhouette of Daryl behind her. She decided it wasn’t Rosita’s time yet, choosing to potentially sacrifice herself instead.
“The first episode was a trifle traumatic, for you guys and for everybody here”, he noted, explaining that the point of the angsty first half of the season was “to get from that point to a point where these characters can smile again.” .
It’s a heroic moment and this show doesn’t necessarily reward its heroes with a long life. Daryl wanted to kill that Savior snooping around in the cellar but if he did… it would have caused massive problems. Things are going to get even more tense. As they set up a sniper’s nest outside the perimeter, they spot Eugene – and start to worry that if they take out Negan, they’ll be endangering the life of their former comrade. Then was her brother, who was bitten by a walker.
I can’t tell you that. Someone else might not be so cooperative. It’s her choice. If it’s going to be one of them, she certainly is not going to choose Rosita. “As long as there’s no shenanigans afoot”. It was satisfying to see the two women finally moving past the man who divided them and viewing each other as true equals.
Speaking to a fan who asked Lincoln what he’d like his final scene to consist of, the actor said: “I’m gonna say this now, this is how I want Rick to die”. They eventually make it into the Saviors’ compound, but Sasha leaves Rosita behind. “Maybe it’s the last thing I say”, he offered as the audience burst into laughter. “People gotta be in or out”. Dr. Eugene Porter has gone to the dark side, and he’s taken his bullsh*t fake personae with him.
Where do Daryl and Rosita go from here? . The root cellar also has a secret space, which allows Maggie and Daryl (Norman Reedus) to hide during a surprise visit from the Saviors, and Maggie’s cool head and sharp instincts about when to fight and when to hold your fire restrain Daryl from making a fatally rash move when a Savior comes down to scope out the cellar.
Daryl has an emotional breakdown and cries as he blames himself for Glenn’s death. Maggie says it wasn’t his fault. She had chose to give her all for the people she loved – and, in particular, to avenge Abraham. “That’s what Glenn thought, and he would know, because he was one of the good things too”. The new world has been good to Simon too, offering him a level of bourgeois consumption he never got within sniffing distance of before. We have to win. Gunshots ring out as Sasha runs into the sanctuary.
When she finds out she tucks it back into her shirt. All the pieces will be coming together soon enough!
