Warning: There are spoilers ahead for Sunday’s “The Walking Dead,” “Alive or Dead or.”

Sunday’s episode of “The Walking Dead” showed Daryl and the Alexandrians make it safely to the Hilltop, an unexpected death, and Father Gabriel get caught by the Saviors.

It also had a showdown between Dwight and Tara that fired up the fandom.

Last chance to head back before spoilers.

While Daryl and Rosita cleared the swamp of walkers to make a safe passageway for the Alexandrians through the forest, Tara and Dwight hung back in the woods.

That wasn’t great news for Dwight. Tara hasn’t been a big fan of his since he killed her girlfriend Denise back in season six. Even though Dwight has switched sides from Negan’s camp, Tara has been suspicious and untrusting of Dwight and has let everyone know she plans to kill him at some point.

Well aware of the situation, Dwight took the opportunity to apologize to Tara for killing Denise.

“I’m sorry about Denise. I truly am,” he told her. “I don’t expect you to forgive me. I don’t deserve it. I just wanted you to know, that’s all.”

Tara didn’t take it too well.

“You don’t get to switch sides and make it OK,” Tara said as she pulled a gun out on Dwight.

She then proceeded to take a shot at Dwight and chase him through the woods while leaving the rest of the group unprotected. 

That line didn’t sit well with fans who were quick to call out Tara’s comment as hypocritical.

As you may remember, before joining Rick’s group, Tara was aligned with The Governor. She was a part of his group when they marched up to the prison and slaughtered Hershel right in front of his children Maggie and Beth. 

Despite that, Glenn saved Tara’s life and Maggie welcomed her into their group of survivors. 

Fans weren’t happy that Tara was so quick to unaccept someone when she was previously afraid of whether or not Rick’s crew would welcomed her after aiding their enemies.

On the bright side, actress Alanna Masterson, who plays Tara, said on aftershow “Talking Dead” her mind may be starting to change when it comes to Dwight.

After seeing him sacrifice himself over to the Saviors to rescue the Alexandrians, Tara’s beginning to think that maybe there is some good in him.

It only took Dwight putting his life on the line again for her to buy it.
