The Walking Dead Fans React to Sasha's Fate and a Possible New Ally

In "Something We Need," the TWD drama ramps up ahead of the season 7 finale.

It’s almost go time. In the penultimate episode of The Walking Dead’s seventh season, titled “Something They Need,” Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the rest are preparing for the epic battle against Negan and the Saviors, while we see what happened to Sasha in the Sanctuary. Plus, the Alexandrians find a surprise supporter of their cause. Fans took to Twitter share their thoughts.

SPOILERS AHEAD! STOP HERE IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN SEASON 7, EPISODE 15 OF THE WALKING DEAD.


LISTEN, TARA HAD TO TELL RICK ABOUT OCEANSIDE

You knew it had to happen. They’ve got a crapload of guns, and Tara (Alanna Masterson) had to break her promise. Off Rick and the gang went to grab the weapons and ammunition with hopes they didn’t have to kill anyone to do it, all while perhaps convincing the women to join the fight.

Leader Natania (Deborah May) didn’t want to fight even though many of the others did, but they wouldn’t buck Natania — not yet, anyway. Still, people enjoyed the Alexandrians’ take-charge approach.

Oh, and we loved the barnacled zombies on the beach – as did the fans.


HILLTOPPERS CHANT “MAGGIE, MAGGIE, MAGGIE” AS GREGORY CRUMBLES

Maggie (Lauren Cohan) was definitely emerging as the leader of Hilltop, and Gregory (Xander Berkeley) wan’t too keen about it. But to actually stab her in the back while she wasn’t looking? Oh, hell no.

Gregory wussed out, of course, and then needed her help when he was attacked by a walker. Please. No one likes that idiot.


VIEWERS LOVE SASHA, THOUGH — AND EVEN APPLAUD NEGAN

Last week’s episode left us wondering what happened after Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) ran into the Sanctuary to kill Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), leaving Rosita (Christian Serratos) behind.

Unfortunately, Sasha did not succeed. Instead, she was captured. Thing is, Negan actually did something good for once when he thwarted a rape attack by one of the Saviors guarding Sasha — and then killed the guy for breaking the rules. Fans felt conflicted over the major moment.


COULD SASHA JOIN THE SAVIORS?

Negan also admired Sasha’s “beach ball-sized lady balls,” as he is wont to do, and offered her a spot on the Savior team. Eugene (Josh McDermitt) came to visit her and explained he’d gone full Negan because the coward felt safer being under Negan’s wing. Then he tried to convince Sasha to do the same. As if.

Sasha played Eugene to try to get him to bring her a weapon to “kill herself.” He brought her a poison pill instead. Wah-wah.


THEN THERE’S THAT LAST SCENE

Fans dug the fact Rosita returned to Alexandria and brought a very important ally with her: Dwight (Austin Amelio). Actually, we weren’t all that surprised Negan’s right-hand man was willing to be a turncoat, even if Daryl is wary.

We can’t wait to see how it’s all going to shake out in next week’s extended season 7 finale of The Walking Dead.


The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on AMC
