RECAP TWD: S07E14: The Other Side

Hey, did anyone miss Gregory? LOL And still another episode where he was not taken out! I'm starting to hope that it is Simon that does it! Also I'd like to note that it appears to me that Simon is just toying with him over this whole taste in booze. And I do hope this is some kind of trap: Simon giving Gregory a pass to the brothel?
I think what stood out to me the most in the episode was Jesus coming out. I was very interested that he chose to tell Maggie. He is working on a strong bond with her. I was wondering, though, if something is coming up where that information being told will be useful.
Sasha grabbed my feels more then once this episode. She was preparing to never see these guys again, as this mission would certainly seal her fate. The crew has became her family and she wanted to take in as much of them as possible before leaving out on the mission to kill Negan.
The Saviors come roaring up to The Hilltop. We have a lot of people hiding there. The Saviors have not come to look for Daryl, who does go hide but stays poised and ready to stab someone. The Saviours came to take their doctor, the brother of the one Negan just throw into the fire pit. And in return Simon gives Gregory a giant case of aspirin. Really?
Before Daryl and Maggie leave the storm cellar, Daryl breaks down and starts crying and apologizes to Maggie for getting Glenn killed. Maggie tells him it is not his fault and that she does not โ€“ did not โ€“ blame him. A huge weight is lifted from Daryl.
Sasha and Rosita get out of The Hilltop safely through a tunnel Sasha made.
On their journey, Rosita still has that chip on her shoulder. At one point while they are checking out a car to hotwire, the necklace Sasha now wears in dangling down, Rosita sees it and tells Sasha she made it for Abe. Finally, when they are set up in a building across from The Sanctuary, Rosita lets down her wall, and talks to Sasha about men (learning different lessons and from different men), and about loving Abe. Negan finally comes out of the compound but Eugene's big mullet keeps getting in the way, she cannot take the shot. When Negan goes back in, Eugene is heard over the walkie talkie that the girls have that Negan will be occupied for a while. Well, thanks for the heads up there, pal! Change of plans, they ARE going inside! But first let's save Eugene and get him out of here...maybe not! Now I am wondering about that! Is he, indeed, comfortable in his new role or is he intelling and working on his own plan, or is he still just doing what cowards do best? And then our girl Sasha prevents Rosita from coming with her. Interesting call!

Did you guys spy Eugene's pal hanging out of his pocket? ๐Ÿ™‚ I pondered something else right there at the end of the episode. It shows the silhouette of a man with a bow, everyone is shouting Daryl came to help the girls, but what if that is Dwight?? AND that leds me to wonder if he will turn her in or conspire with her???? And while we are on the topic of "I SPY", did anyone else notice that Daryl has washed his greasy hair and has on a fresh outfit, WITH SLEEVES. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
