Sasha's Fate Revealed in New Walking Dead Season 7 Photo
After Sunday night's episode of The Walking Dead, AMC released a new preview, clip and photos for next week's episode, Something They Need, which is the second to last episode of The Walking Dead Season 7. While these previews and photos don't often reveal too much, both images for Sunday night's episode seem to reveal exactly what happened to Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), after the episode's surprising ending. Be warned, if you haven't watched this week's episode of The Walking Dead there will be SPOILERS below, so read on at your own risk.
The bulk of last week's episode, The Other Side, focused on Sasha and Rosita (Christian Serratos) preparing to find and kill the nefarious Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), with both ladies eventually bonding over their love for the late Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) along the way. When Sasha couldn't get a clean shot at Negan with her sniper rifle, they both decided to enter The Sanctuary and kill him up close. After finding Eugene (Josh McDermitt) and telling him they're there to free him, Eugene says that he doesn't want to be freed, before running off. Rosita was in for a much different surprise, though, when Sasha closed off the fence, essentially locking her out, telling Rosita that it wasn't her time quite yet, before going off to find Negan on her own. We saw Sasha kill one member of the Saviors before running into a building, where we heard more gunfire exchanged, although we didn't know quite what happened to Sasha, until now.
The photo released by AMC should look quite familiar to fans, since it appears to be one of the same cells that Daryl (Norman Reedus) was locked in during the first half of Season 7, before making his daring escape thanks to the aid of a mystery benefactor who left him a key and a note. The good news for Sasha fans is that she doesn't appear to be injured in any way, with no blood stains seen on her clothes, but it's worth noting that she is wearing different clothes than when we saw her last, but still, she appears to be unharmed. The second photo released from tomorrow's episode is possibly even more intriguing, though, with Eugene seen standing next to a door, with a hand-written sign on it that says "Training Center."
When Daryl spent his time in captivity, he spent his days in a cell like Sasha's, where he was played the same song over and over again, in an attempt to break his mental psyche. Over time, the music, along with a photo of Glenn (Steven Yeun), did cause Daryl to break down in tears, although he eventually did escape. While it isn't known for certain if the cell both Daryl and Sasha were in was this "training center," it certainly would make sense to call this cell a "training center," since the object appears to be to get the subjects to obey every command Negan has to give. If this is the same cell, it's possible that Eugene and Sasha might have an interesting conversation ahead of them in next week's episode.
Eugene was taken by The Saviors at the end of the mid-season finale, when Rosita tried to kill Negan with a bullet Eugene made for her, which resulted in Negan killing Spencer Monroe (Austin Nichols). Over the past few episodes, Eugene has interacted with all of Negan's wives, who he learned were trying to have him killed, and managed to find a niche for himself within this community, which is likely why he didn't want to leave. Take a look at the photos from next week's episode of The Walking Dead, Something They Need, which airs Sunday, March 26 at 9 PM ET on AMC.
