Never mind "This Is Us," it's "The Walking Dead" Season 7 that may get you sobbing this week, for multiple reasons.
Season 7, Episode 14, "The Other Side" airs Sunday, March 19. Here's AMC's synopsis:
"The Saviors visit the Hilltop unexpectedly, surprising everyone, with plans of taking more than supplies."
Daryl (Norman Reedus) is now at Hilltop, after leaving the Kingdom. Based on spoilers from The Spoiling Dead Fans, it sounds like a pretty emotional episode, as well as a tense one, as Daryl hides from the visiting Saviors, and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) and Rosita's (Christian Serratos) plan falls apart in a big way.
SPOILER WARNING: Stop reading if you don't want details on what reportedly happens this week.
According to TSDF's source, Maggie (Lauren Cohan) is basically taking over Hilltop, pulling a Carol (Melissa McBride) to teach people to fight with knives, and Gregory (Xander Berkeley) does his best to sell her out to the Saviors to try and reclaim power. Maggie has a nice bonding chat with Jesus (Tom Payne) at one point, where he talks about past "boyfriends," in the first acknowledgement that he's gay.
Here's the Maggie/Daryl part that might get you crying:
Do Maggie and Daryl have any kind of talk about Glenn?
Yes, they have a pretty emotional talk while they're hiding in the cellar from the Saviors. Daryl starts to cry and says it was his fault. Maggie says it wasn't and that Glenn thought Daryl was one of the good things in this world. And Glenn would know because he was one of the good things too. Maggie then hugs Daryl.
Anytime Glenn's (Steven Yeun) name comes up we get misty, and to have Daryl openly talk to Maggie about his role in what happened, and to hear Maggie say that about Glenn, and about Daryl ... just typing it gets us misty. COME BACK TO US GLENN WE NEED YOU. It's very Season 7 Maggie to both mother Daryl and to take the lead on how to process and move forward from Glenn's death. It sounds like the scene is more about Glenn than either of them, but the whole episode seems like a showcase for Maggie's strength. And it's about time!
Not getting us misty, but definitely getting us pissed, is the source's note about Eugene (Josh McDermitt). Sasha and Rosita reportedly go to the Sanctuary and try to rescue Eugene, but he just starts crying and says he didn't ask to be rescued. So he goes back inside. Sonofad*ck!
Rosita runs away from the Sanctuary at the end of the episode, but things sound really bad for poor Sasha: "We don't see Sasha captured, but she does run inside one of the buildings and we hear a crapload of gunfire."
So when we're done crying over another beautiful Glenn moment, we may cry with frustration over Eugene. The hell, man? Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) would be pissed.
"The Walking Dead" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on AMC.
