I thought id missed an episode there for a minute. Sasha just appears in the prison cell, all the gang is all the sudden on a beach. The whole thing where they join forces and heroically shoot all the walkers is about as dumb as it gets. According to the last several seasons, 2-3 of them with knives could have killed them easily. Ugh. I'll keep watching , but this show needs to be put down like a lame horse.
Couldn't have said it better myself. The writing is just god awful anymore.
Maybe I missed something during the season when I was bored out of my mind and probably doing something on my phone instead of watching...but why in the hell would Sasha go all kamikaze on the Saviors compound in the first place? I realize she wanted to kill Negan and thought it was the only way to end all the bullshit, and didn't care if she died in the process...but did she really think she was going to get to Negan? She saw him walk around the building surrounded by a bunch of his goons before rushing in. The chances of success were so astronomically low I don't see how any intelligent person could have looked at that and thought it was anything but needless suicide.
And then, as RS pointed out, they needlessly spend a good chunk of the ammo that they just secured on a bunch of walkers that have been rendered pretty much harmless at this point in the series. They really need a way to make the walkers a threat again. Find a way for them to evolve and become faster/strong. Something. Right now, they're not much more than props.
