The Walking Dead Fans React to an Emotional Confession, an Ill-Advised Road Trip

In "The Other Side," Maggie and Daryl share a moment, while Sasha and Rosita embark on a girl-powered road trip (that fans fear they won't survive).

There are just two weeks left of The Walking Dead season 7, but episode 14, “The Other Side,” took its time in exploring what, exactly, Rosita (Christian Serratos) and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) planned to do to get rid of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) once and for all.

Fans were plenty anxious as they awaited Rosita and Sasha’s big move, but they also got emotional watching several touching moments back on the Hilltop.

SPOILERS AHEAD!
STOP HERE IF YOU HAVENโ€™T SEEN SEASON 7, EPISODE 14 OF THE WALKING DEAD


The episode began with six minutes of no dialogue; instead, a montage showed the daily, relatively peaceful life on the compound โ€” and was sure to reveal that Maggie’s (Lauren Cohan) baby is doing well. But Rosita and Sasha realized it was time to act on their “kill Negan” plan.


But when the Saviors made their way to the Hilltop, prompting Maggie and Daryl (Norman Reedus) to hide, they decided to take the doctor with them. (That doesn’t bode too well for the pregnant Maggie.)


After their close call with the Saviors, Daryl and Maggie had a heart-to-heart that saw Daryl apologize for causing Glenn’s death โ€” and Maggie tell him that he wasn’t responsible.


Maggie also had a heart-to-heart with Jesus (Tom Payne), in whichย he casually revealed that, like in the comics, he is gay.


Meanwhile, back on Rosita and Sasha’s great road trip…


The women managed to find Eugene (Josh McDermitt) went in toย rescue him, but he didn’t want to leave.


The women didn’t let that hiccup get to them, and both wanted to move on with their plan (which, at this point, still consisted of nothing more specific than “kill Negan”). But when Sasha climbed inside the hole in the fence they’d made for Eugene, she closed it back up and locked Rosita outside, presumably sacrificing herself in an attempt to take Negan down solo.


But that doesn’t mean Rosita was safe. In the final moments of the episode, she caught sight of someone withย a crossbow lurking in the shadowsย โ€” but who?!


At the end of the episode, some fans who were feeling the absence of Rick Grimes and co. made their displeasure known.

With just two hours left in the season, every second of screen time counts.

Most of all, though, people areย pumped for more.

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