Finale of Walking Dead will be 'painful and heartbreaking'

Gimple and the show's latest fatality broke down Sunday's season seven finale of the AMC zombie drama during Talking Dead, opening up about the "All-Out War" arc that kicked off what will be the central focus of season eight.

Sasha was properly buried and Maggie gave her a voice-over eulogy.

Jadis' people were pretty much made extinct, but Jadis fired a flare that found her people locking Rick's group in and setting off bombs.

For his part, Morgan said Negan always wants the strong-willed soldiers on his side and grouped Sasha in with Daryl in that capacity. She had to take her path with Rosita, of all people, which led her to that epic final moment.

To say more would be to spoil the elegant plot twist, so instead let's talk about all the fond words Martin-Green's co-stars lobbed her way on the after-show. When he got to say, "We're not gonna be afraid of losing each other anymore; what we're doing is so much bigger", he nearly [encapsulated] the entire show, where everybody was, at that point.
