Christian Serratos on Rosita’s Finale Fate

Warning: This story contains spoilers from The Walking Dead series finale. The latest and last victim of The living Dead didn’t want to get out of the zombie drama alive. Titled “Rest in Peace,” Sunday’s series finale sent the trio of Rosita Espinosa (Christian Serratos), Father Gabriel Stokes (Seth Gilliam), and Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt) on a mission to destroy the children’s home in the lower ward of the Commonwealth reach. After the Commonwealth Army led an invading herd of walkers away from Governor Pamela Milton’s (Laila Robins) gated community, Rosita, Gabriel and Eugene rescue Rosita’s daughter and the other kidnapped children, only to be overrun by the zombie mobs.

It was during their dramatic escape that Rosita, carrying daughter Coco in her arms, appeared to have been devoured by the walker horde as she fell from a pipe which she climbed to safety. But Rosita survived, seemingly unscathed, battling the walkers and climbing variants before jumping out of an overturned ambulance and scrambling into an open window.

Unfortunately, Rosita didn’t escape without a scratch or a bite. She later revealed a walker bite on her shoulder, which meant there could be no limb-severing, life-saving amputation. After a heartbreaking farewell, Rosita finally succumbed to the infection and passed away peacefully as the last death The living Dead.

“I didn’t want to survive the show,” Serratos said on Sunday Talk dead. “I thought the show needed a really emotional ending. I thought it made the happy ending that we had so much stronger to have our hearts broken one last time.”

Serratos, who played Rosita Espinosa since Season 4 in 2014, wanted Rosita to die the way she lived: for the family.

“It made sense for the character, too. She was so willing to die for her loved ones and the family she gained after making sure her child was safe,” Serratos explains. “And for me, as an actor, I wanted closure. I’ve been playing this character for a long time and I was never going to see her again. So I needed that closure.”

As the show entered its eleventh and final season, Serratos approached showrunner Angela Kang and executive producer Greg Nicotero about Rosita’s final story and a legacy that would live on even beyond. The living Dead finished.

“Well, Christian, I remember her coming into my office almost a year ago and saying, ‘Look, I really want something big for Rosita. I want something for my character to sink her teeth into,'” the episode director shared. Nicotero Comic in our postmortem “Rest in Peace”. “And she toyed with the idea of ​​proposing that, ‘Is she going to die?’ And she said, ‘I want to go out, I want it to be heroic, I want to save the kids. I want to do something that leaves a legacy to my character.'”
