Warning: Contains spoilers for The Walking Dead deteriorate seven.
Sasha and Rosita ventured onward on their goal to take down Negan, in an partial which shifted moving tools for the arriving spectacle.
Last week’s Bury Me Here saw the show breakaway from the slow-burning rut with startling deaths and engaging impression switches. While The Other Side wasn’t utterly the same well-rounded drive, it was a estimable follow-up which indicates The Walking Dead may have rediscovered its mojo forward of the crucial, final hours.
Opening with an glorious dialogue-free method showing events heading up to Rosita and Sasha’s purloin exchange, residents at Hilltop were set into panic when the Saviors done a warn visit. It was radically an instigator, heading Rosita and Sasha to shun outward the walls while Daryl and Maggie retreated subterraneous for some moving fastening time.
The latter span were forced to confront any other for the first time given Glenn’s death – heading to a heart-tugging moment where they’re reduced to tears while recalling his brutal demise. It was simply good to see Maggie’s Lauren Cohan given some room to excel, having played a much smaller partial in the infancy of deteriorate seven.
Her position as intensity successor to Hilltop however competence be a rough road, with Gregory now villainous siding with Negan’s men and melancholy Jesus. It’s startling Gregory has survived for this long, but this new transparent devotion begs the doubt either he could also be gunning for a place at the Saviors bottom now their alloy has been pinched.
The best moments of this partial however concerned the simmering tragedy between Rosita and Sasha. As they shared unrelenting glances and clashed with assassination tactics, the span finally aired their unaddressed adore adversary over Abraham – ensuing in both Sonequa Martin-Green’s and Christian Serratos’ glorious moments as they relapse in an deserted post circuitously Negan’s base.
It was an glorious stage which positively spells doom for at slightest one of the pair. As they opt for Rosita’s ground-based tactic after a unsuccessful sniper attempt, Sasha closes the spiny handle behind her preventing Rosita from entering, asserting ‘it’s not your time’, before venturing alone to take down Negan.
Could this be the last we see Sasha alive? It positively sounds like an culmination note before a potentially hideous reveal. With the consummate of the partial also showing a crossbow-wielding conformation to presumably support Rosita, all is indicating towards a thespian break-in into Negan’s stronghold.
So while The Other Side was character-shifting setup for the final two episodes, it was an effectively romantic build with some standout performances. It’s been a while given The Walking Dead’s carrot-stick teases haven’t been met with tired sighs, but as the show shifts into the final widen – we’re back counting down the days until the next dose.
The Walking Dead continues on AMC Sundays, and front in the UK on Fox Mondays at 9pm.
