'The Walking Dead' Season 7 Finale: [SPOILER] Just Died in the Most Awesomely Heroic Way Possible!

WARNING: We’re about to reveal the biggest moments from The Walking Dead's season seven finale! If you do not want to be spoiled, leave immediately, but watch out for wild animals and backstabbing allies! For everyone else, grab your guns and prepare for battle!
Zombies and tigers and pills -- oh my!
The Walking Dead just aired its most ferocious season finale yet (Heck yes, that was a Shiva pun!) and we're still in awe over the episode's most shocking twists and satisfying turns. As for the biggest moment of the night? That honor definitely belongs to Sasha!
As part of their deal, The Scavengers and their many guns joined Rick in Alexandria in an attempt to ambush The Saviors and defeat Negan once and for all. But what Rick didn’t take into account is that The Scavengers are the least loyal group of all time. They stabbed the Alexandrians in the back and promptly turned on them as soon as The Saviors arrived.
"Did you ever hear the one about the stupid little prick named Rick who thought he knew shit but didn’t know shit and got everyone that he gave a shit about killed? It's about you!" Negan snarled to Rick.
Earlier in the episode, we discovered that Negan concocted a secret deal with Sasha: He would return her alive to Alexandria (in a coffin!), but in exchange, Rick would have to choose one member of his group to be Lucille-d to death.
But what Negan didn't know is that while Sasha was riding alone in the casket, she took the suicide pill that Eugene secretly gave her and she happily kissed her life goodbye with a series of hallucinatory dreams about Abraham.
So when Negan went to crack open the coffin to give Rick a peek of Sasha, he was shocked to see a zombie-fied version of her lunging at him.
ET recently caught up with TWD star Sonequa Martin-Green at PaleyFest in Los Angeles, and the 32-year-old actress confessed that she's always hoped that Sasha would exit the series in a selfless way.
"This is how I'd want to go out: I always say I just want to be, like, in the middle of a bunch of oppressors --whether it's people, or walkers, or something," she explained to our cameras. "And I just want to slash through them in sacrifice for somebody else. Drop the mic. That's what I would love."
Looks like she definitely got her wish!
