The Walking Dead Season 5, Episode 7: [SPOILERS] Die!

The Walking Dead Season 5, Episode 7: “Crossed” aired tonight, November 23, and next week we’ll be tuning in for the midseason finale. After weeks of separately checking in with various factions of our larger group, Episode 7 focused on everyone, even though they weren’t together. Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Noah (Tyler James Williams) rejoined the church group — Rick Grimes’ (Andrew Lincoln), Father Gabriel Stokes’ (Seth Gilliam), Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), Tyreese (Chad Coleman), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs), and baby Judith — and formulated a plan to get Beth Greene (Emily Kinney) and Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) out of Grady Memorial Hospital.

Meanwhile the formerly D.C.-bound bunch — Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun), Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan), Tara Chambler (Alanna Masterson), Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz), Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt), and Rosita Espinosa(Christian Serratos) — struggled to find their footing in the aftermath of Eugene’s truth bomb. Abraham had the toughest time of all, but ultimately realized he still wanted to live.

Before long, Rick and his crew used Noah as a pawn to lure some of the cops out, and it worked. Though Daryl almost died at the hands of one officer, Rick and the others captured the three of them and planned to use them to negotiate with Dawn in an effort to get Beth and Carol back.

Back at the church sketchy Father Gabriel escaped through some floorboards and had a close encounter with a walker, but made it out alive.

Elsewhere, Eugene finally came to towards the end of the episode, Carol was still out like a light at Grady and Sasha was tricked by one of the hostage cops, who clocked her in the head with a gun while she was trying to take out one of his friends who had turned. We don’t know if Sasha is dead, but it isn’t looking good. Thankfully we have more hope for Carol and Eugene, but their fates are still up in the air too.

Are you surprised there were so many deaths (or in the very least, near-deaths) tonight? Vote below and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook!

The Walking Dead Season 5 airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
