It’s a wrap for season 7 of The Walking Dead and it went out giving fans some hope. Season 7 was a tough one for fans, we had to watch our favorite group of survivors bend to the will of Negan and his ruthless saviors and it wasn’t pretty.We lost some favorite characters along the way but it’s good to know we got something to look forward too come season 8.
Rick and the group have finally decided enough is enough and that Negan and the rest of The Saviors have to go. We watched them all season along build alliances and round-up as much weapons as they could for the final showdown with Negan.
Tonight’s season finale opens with Sasha, she is currently riding inside a coffin enjoying some tunes courtesy of an iPod given to her by
Eugene, I mean Negan while on her way with the Saviors back to Alexandria.
She is to be used as a pawn in Negan’s plan to thwart Ricks uprising, Sasha wants nothing to do with that plan of course if any of her friends have to die. Meanwhile in Alexandria, everyone is getting ready for the epic showdown. Dwight who has convinced Rick and a very reluctant Daryl to trust him and to let him help them take down Negan. The scavengers also have rolled into town via garbage trucks and bicycles to help as agreed upon. It looks like the plan is all coming together Rick and co!
Maggie is now the defacto leader of The Hilltop now that Gregory is gone. She has decided she will take a group to Alexandria to help aid in the fight against Negan and The Saviors. Not to be left out are the good folk of The Kingdom. With a rejuvenated Carol on the team, they also decided it’s time to fight. Led by King Ezekiel and his pet tiger Shiva they head for Alexandria. Will they get there on time though?
We zap back to Sasha in that coffin, we are treated to scenes or hallucinations of her and her dead boo Abraham. We eventually learn that scenes with her Abraham were just helping her come to terms with what she was about to do. Last episode Eugene gave her a poisonous pill to take so she could end her suffering. Sasha put that pill to use and during her journey in the coffin she took her own life. Hmmmmm what is she up too?
The Saviors on their journey to Alexandria were delayed a bit due to some obstructions in the road thanks to Dwight. Eugene decides it would be a good idea if he went ahead to and try to convince Rick and everyone to not go through with the ambush. Eugene arrives and insists Rick gives up, but Rick isn’t about that life and decides that Eugene has to go. Rick gives the signal for Rosita to trigger the explosives that was set up for the Saviors when they arrive. Rosita presses the button but nothing happens, then the garbage pail survivors turn their guns on Rick and people of Alexandria.
Yup they have been double crossed.
Negan pops out of the truck to take in the look of disappointment on Rick’s face. Looks like everything is going to shit now for Rick now. Negan heads over to the coffin to reveal Sasha and this happens:
Sasha is now a walker and in her death she gives Rick and everyone an opportunity to save themselves. An all-out gun battle between the remaining Alexadrians and Saviors ensues while Walker Sasha is taking a bite out of a Savior.
The mini-uprising is soon quelled by the Saviors and the Scavengers as their numbers are just greater. The Saviors are back in control of the situation and Negan is now pissed, someone has to pay!
Negan decides that not only will Rick lose his hands, but he will also lose his son Carl as he intends on introducing his skull to Lucille. As soon as Negan winds up to knock Carl’s block off this amazingness happens:
The cavalry in the form of The Hilltop and The Kingdom has finally arrived!
With their own set of reinforcements and a cool Savior ass kicking tiger on their side they push out all of their enemies from Alexandria.
But I was really sad to see Michonne ain’t shit without her sword and got her ass beat though.
The coast is now all clear, Rick and Carl go check on Michonne and they find her pretty beat up but still alive after she managed to dispatch her attacker. The aftermath though had her looking like Martin after he fought Tommy Hearns.
Rick and co are licking their wounds, but now they have true allies in the fight in against Negan. They are going to need it because Negan is preparing for all out war come season 8. I CAN’T WAIT!
Tonight’s season finale was definitely intense, peep the memes that followed to help usher off The Walking Dead’s seventh season in the gallery below.
