Sasha asks about her past in the Army and Rosita cuts her off unless she wants to talk about the mission.
Sasha and Rosita's bonding trip to the Sanctuary was the A-storyline this week, as they put their shared histories with Abraham behind them in a shared desire to avenge his death. Thankfully, by the end of this episode, both women felt a little closer to actual people again.
Rosita eventually finds a auto to hotwire as they head towards the Saviors complex.
War is coming to The Walking Dead, and with only two episodes remaining in Season 7, things are escalating quickly - in last week's episode, Morgan took a life and Carol finally got back in the game, so you know that shit is getting real. "The end of this season is very much the end of a chapter; it's a conclusion that promises this epic story ahead". The Saviors are short a doctor, so Negan has chose to take Dr. Harlan Carson out of Hilltop. Besides, Gregory's people are already turning against him, and this is just another nail in the coffin of his leadership.
Consequently, their interactions as they sit and ponder their past, a sniper rifle perched on laps, are far more moving and believable than it would have been if merely compressed into a few episodes; it's moments such as these where you realise you care for these characters more than you initially realised. But each of those scenes says as much about Maggie as it does about Daryl, especially when she begs him not to kill any of the Saviors after they arrive at Hilltop, and pleads with him to help her win.
I have a feeling this was Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) saying goodbye to The Walking Dead.
White House defends budget cuts
As is becoming customary with this administration, the document billed as a budget is really more of a preliminary sketch. Corporation for Public Broadcasting: The CPB supports PBS, NPR, and public television and radio around the country.
If so, it's a parallel with what happens with Rosita and Sasha this week, when they show up at the Sanctuary. On a show that kills off this many characters, that's probably the best you can hope for. You've got a little bit of good footage, but there's a lot of slowly-paced filler to get you there. But eventually you reach a point where you realize that "basically fine" isn't good enough, that even if a scene is believable and reasonably entertaining, it can still be a drag on the overall narrative if it doesn't serve a greater point. It has style and tone and mood to spare.
"I'm going to say this now, this is how I want Rick to die", Lincoln began.
That makes it easier to watch, but it also makes it harder to pinpoint when things go wrong, because it's not a single, isolated event. Simon tells Gregory that he's looking for Daryl without mentioning his name. Likewise, giving Daryl and Maggie a moment to remember Glenn certainly has some value. Neither character has really gotten the screen-time they deserve this season.
Enid tries to create a diversion by offering vegetables to a Savior. Having a major role on a new show could definitely be an indication that Sasha wasn't long for this world, though the show offered up plenty of reasons for her death to be plausible as well.
"In my opinion there should be more awesome gay people in fiction because there are plenty of awesome gay people in real life", Robert Kirkman, who created The Walking Dead comics and is an EP on the show, said past year.
