The finale of the current season – entitled The First Day of the Rest of Your Life – aired in the US last night (April 2) on AMC, and will be broadcast in the UK on Fox tonight (April 3). With the event of this season leading up to Rick and his Alexandria group uniting with the other survivor groups against Negan’s band of Saviors, many fans expected that war between the two forces would break out – resulting in the death of at least one major character.


The finale ultimately saw the end of the road for Sasha, who succumbed to the poison capsule that Eugene had slipped her in the previous installment of the show. Events also saw the Kingdom finally joining the fight against Negan, while the junkyard survivors – led by the mysterious Jadis – turned on Rick’s group.

In an episode that saw many twists and turns, fans and castmembers from The Walking Dead registered their shock and overall delight with how things panned out.
