Every week, The Walking Dead’s very own Josh McDermitt, who plays Dr. Eugene Porter, is taking EW behind the scenes of the hit AMC horror series. For each episode, McDermitt will share his thoughts on what went down and what’s coming up, plus walk us through the ins and outs of the show. This week, McDermitt dives into the 14th episode of season 7, “The Other Side.”
We see some cracks in Rosita’s armor as she starts to let Sasha into her world. Directed by Michael Satrazemis, “The Other Side” sees the story split off into groups of two who are moving forward with their agendas. We got an insight into a little bit of Rosita’s history, and more importantly, what was going on under that rough, hardened exterior she flaunts so effortlessly. We know that Eugene “knows things” but I’ll be damned… so does Rosita! I loved catching a glimpse into her history where we find out what she’s been doing to survive. We find out why she knows how to hot-wire a car or disarm bombs. We learned a little bit more about her relationship with Abraham. As angry and pissed off as she can be in the aftermath of Negan’s atrocities, it’s nice to see a vulnerable side to her.
