The Walking Dead concluded its seventh season last night with a dramatic finale – see a selection of the fan and castmember reactions to the events of the final episode below.
Full spoilers from the final episode of the current season of The Walking Dead are posted below – proceed with caution
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.

sasha is probably the strongest character we've ever had on the show. @SonequaMG did such an amazing job, and it was so sad to see her go.
