The Walking Dead is setting up for the grand Season 7 finale, which will show the communities come together to take on the ruthless Negan and his Saviors. The show is very gradually putting all of the pieces in place, but the payoff should be epic.
Sunday's episode, "Say Yes," raised a lot of questions about the rest of the season and beyond. Let's take a look at some of the biggest ones we're now asking.
5. What Did Tara Tell Rick?
Ever since Tara met the Oceanside community, she has stayed relatively quiet about her encounter with the women-run community. Early in this episode, she was talking to baby Judith about how she wants to tell Rick about Oceanside, but there would be no good outcome — most likely, both groups would start shooting at each other.
At the end of the episode, it was clear that Tara decided that she was ready to tell Rick about Oceanside anyway. She will probably inform him that they are peaceful people who don't want to go to war against Negan, but that they have guns. We will most likely see Rick, Tara and a few others show up at Oceanside's door, peacefully pleading for help. Given that, be prepared to see the Oceanside very soon!
4. Will Rick And Michonne Have A Baby?
"Say Yes" dialed in on the fact that Rick and Michonne have a long future ahead of them. In one scene, we saw Rick kiss Michonne's stomach, and the Internet exploded as that eludes to the possibility that they could be pregnant. One could say Rick wouldn't want to have another baby after what happened last time — his wife gave birth during the zombie apocalypse (R.I.P. Lori) — but at the same time, Rick cares about the future of his people, and having another child is definitely a way to keep it going.
Whether or not this will happen, though, is still up in the air. Plus, we've already seen two main characters undergo a pregnancy on the series; we don't necessarily need to see a third.
3. What Will Happen To Rosita And Sasha During Their Mission To Kill Negan?
Rosita and Sasha don't have the friendliest relationship on The Walking Dead, but it looks like they are going to have to work together to defeat one common enemy: Negan. They both were traumatized when they watched Abraham get his skull crushed in by Lucille during the season premiere, and they are ready to get revenge. Rosita stole one of the sniper rifles that Rick and Michonne found, and they want to use it to kill Negan.
Rosita and Sasha are both walking into this situation with an "I've got nothing to lose" mentality — and they are aware that they could easily die at any moment when trying to assassinate the deadliest and most powerful man around. I am almost 100 percent certain we will see one of these two characters (if not both) kick the bucket by the end of the season during an attempt to kill Negan. Most of us know Negan's not dying anytime soon, so definitely expect Sasha and/or Rosita to be killed.

2. Will 'Richonne' Last?
The obvious highlight from this week's episode was Rick and Michonne's fantastic couple moments. When they first became a thing last season, I wasn't too fond of the idea of Rick and Michonne dating. Now, they have become the best couple on The Walking Dead as they aren't cringe-y to watch and they have an amazing, fun chemistry — but will the relationship last?
Every woman whom Rick has loved on The Walking Dead has perished, and many fans are wondering if Michonne will continue the trend. She would have to go down pretty brutally as she is one of the strongest characters on the show. Not to mention their relationship follows that of Rick and Andrea in the comics, which has a very long runtime. Considering the odds, it's safe to say that "Richonne" isn't going anywhere.
1. Will Rick Actually Die?
In this episode, Michonne (and the audience) believed Rick died for a minute, until it was revealed that he pulled a Glenn and crawled under a "dumpster." Later on, Michonne told Rick that she couldn't live without him — but he disagreed and told her if he doesn't make it, she will have to take his spot as the leader of Alexandria. Did The Walking Dead actually just hint at killing its main character?
Most of us have learned that anything can happen on The Walking Dead, but it would be extremely risky to kill off the main protagonist. However, there is an abundance of other main characters who are just as great as Rick and could easily take his place. Rick's death could totally switch the direction of the show and bring it in a new direction, and truthfully, that is what the show needs.
Sure, Season 7 is running pretty fantastic right now, but who's to say it won't slow down again in Season 8 and continue to repeat the same themes and arcs? I doubt they would kill Rick off, and if they did, it would be towards the conclusion of the series.
The Walking Dead airs Sundays on AMC.
