The Walking Dead returns this Sunday with the all-new episode “Something They Need.” It appears Rick and company are on their way to Oceanside. In the episode “Say Yes” we saw Tara talk to Rick in private, no doubt to inform him of the weapons at Oceanside. Given the stance Oceanside has with outsiders, it’ll be interesting to see how Rick and company go about making contact. We can see an explosion going off in the preview at Oceanside but it would seem unlikely that Rick would be trying to hurt anyone there. With the Saviors history that Oceanside has, they would be very valuable allies in the coming war.
At the end of last week’s episode “The Other Side,” we saw Sasha lock the gate on Rosita and head into the Sanctuary alone. While this was initially planned as a suicide mission, Sasha seems to have been captured. Some have speculated that Sasha will suffer the fate of Holly from the comics while others think the show may have something different entirely in store for Sasha. One big question is if Eugene will factor in somehow. Could Sasha’s death at the hands of the Saviors convince Eugene to go against the Saviors? Perhaps even more interesting…could Eugene convince Sasha to join the Saviors?
The other big mystery from the Walking Dead last week was the shadowy figure Rosita ran into. The general consensus is that it’s Dwight, who is finally ready to take a stand against Negan. While Dwight maybe ready to go against the Saviors, he certainly won’t be getting a warm welcome in Alexandria. In addition to being a very unfriendly character on a number of visits, he tortured Daryl and killed Denise. It’ll be exciting to see how it all plays out.
