Two of The Walking Dead's toughest ladies were last seen with major question marks surrounding their current scenarios. Sasha Williams rushed Negan's Sanctuary on a suicide mission and Rosita Espinosa encountered a mystery man on the compound's outskirts.
Both of those question marks will turn into exclamation points in Sunday's new Something They Need episode, which not only sees Rick's group venturing to Oceanside, but also reveals Sasha's fate and Rosita's encounter.
Showrunner Scott Gimple opened up about the two characters, who both saw more growth than ever in their The Other Side episode a week ago. While he promises the aftermath of Sasha's choice will be coming, Gimple does reserve that certain answers may or may not be coming.
"So, we saw Sasha go in there and heard a lot of gunfire," Gimple said. "There was maybe even a shout you might have heard. So things either went really well, or they went poorly. Whatever will be known in any direction of these stories, there are only two episodes left. You will find out any questions that you had there will be answered. Actually put a big asterisk next to that, it could say, 'Some questions may not be answered.'"

As for Rosita, the character will continue to grow. After multiple seasons of serving as little more than a piece of Abraham's story, she unveiled details of how she became the hardened character fans have come to know.
"When I talked to Christian [Serratos] at the beginning of the season, or even earlier than that, I wanted this character to react to the events that occurred with a certain anger," Gimple said. "I love that Rosita is one of the toughest characters on the show. She's not one of the biggest, she's sort of petite, but I think she carries herself like Shaq. She's incredibly formidable and tough and powerful. She does not suffer fools or situations gladly. Now, this has been a function of some really traumatic stuff, she's been dangerously angry.
"But what happens here in this episode, she's seeing where this anger has led her. I don't think she's culpable at all for Sasha going in there by herself, but the conversation she had with Sasha was really important to her, and this journey was important to her and it will have a lasting effect.
"We'd broken the episode much earlier on and it was about how they're both on similar journeys. That said, Sasha was, by the end of his time in the story, closer to Abraham, and had finally achieved something with him that had eluded her. And to that end, the story moved more toward Sasha. And we knew that. But we also, I'd been looking forward to seeing Rosita and Sasha together for several months.
"These particular characters, with what they've been through not directly with each other, their connection with Abraham and awkwardness around it and yet needing each other and very much being on the same page now."
Given each characters current predicament, it's possible that their mission to the Sanctuary may have put them in a place where only one, if either, sees Season 8.
