The Walking Dead makes room for Rosita and Sasha to embark on their plan to assassinate Negan. It’s been a thread in development since Glenn and Abraham first met their grisly ends at the beginning of this seemingly never-ending season 7. And it’s a thread that has already come to a head once, when Rosita took her shot at the king and missed – or, more accurately, nearly took out his beloved baseball bat. Still, the show loves the run-up to confrontation almost as much as it loves cliffhangers, so the plot to kill Negan seems destined to take up an entire episode without going anywhere in particular.
But who knows, maybe The Walking Dead will surprise with ‘The Other Side.’ There are just a few episodes left in season 7, and while the war that was promised hasn’t yet arrived, the series remains adamant that it is just around the corner. And while the circumstances of Rick’s battle with Negan has already had numerous inciting incidents, perhaps Rosita and Sasha’s plan will serve as the event that finally sparks a much needed fire with regard to the season’s plotting.
At any rate, if you would like to discuss the events of ‘The Other Side’, this is the place to do it. Feel free to begin a conversation about the show in the comments section, as those participating will do so understanding that it is for those who have seen the episode.
The Walking Dead continues next Sunday with ‘Something They Need’ @9pm on AMC.
