The Walking Dead Season 7
While people are throwing a lot of shade on The Walking Dead after Season 7's anthological approach, it might be the case that the season would have shined as a single bingeable experience.
It's a Sasha-centric POV episode as we experience her very non-linear perspective leading into a face-off in Alexandria between Rick and the Heapsters coalition vs. Negan and the Saviors.
For the first time in quite some time, several storylines intersect, including a return to the remote Oceanside community.
We get a look at what's been going on at the Hilltop with Maggie's pregnancy and the citizen training. However, the bulk of the episode is Sasha and Rosita's Thelma and Louise journey to take out Negan at the Savior's compound.
A boiling point is reached between the Saviors and the Kingdom on their specified tribute day, but Morgan discovers that the outcome was rigged by someone inside. Carol decides to leave her safe haven once the truth catches up with her.
Michonne and Rick go to a carnival (for real) in their search for more guns for the Heapsters. While there, they kinda get engaged and come to an understanding about what the future holds for them.
The timeline reverts back to when Eugene was taken by Negan from Alexandria. We see at the Saviors compound, there are repercussions for Dwight in the aftermath of Daryl's escape. And we get to see how Eugene settles into his new reality as Negan's resident smarty-pants.
The Walking Dead midseason sets up some major changes to come for Rick and his family.
