Christian Serratos as Rosita on AMC’s The Walking Dead.
**Nominated by Luke from QuizUp. Thanks Luke!**
When Christian Serratos was first introduced on TWD as Rosita, I thought she was strong-willed and stubborn with a guarded heart. She was a bad-ass and someone I was always confident in to save the day.
Over the seasons, Rosita has not always gotten the spotlight she deserves, as her character became entangled in some interesting love triangles that seemed more like plot fluff.
When Rosita became a mother, I was really excited because I thought that this might bring us some new layers to her character. Rosita has this spark within her and I have been waiting for it to light up the screen and it looks like it has finally happened!
**Please note spoilers are ahead if you are not up-to-date on the series.**
Christian Serratos’s performance in season 10 episode 8 was so real and heartbreaking. Rosita puts the needs of her baby first, but I cannot possibly imagine what she was going through when she had to take down undead Siddiq.
Rosita has always put up a strong front previously and she channels some of her rage by playing Fight Club with the walkers outside the gates. Rosita loses her cool a few times and ends up needing to be saved by Eugene, which is a wake-up call for her.
Rosita starts to realize that she may die, which never scared her before, but now she wants to be there for Baby Coco. Rosita now wants to live more than ever and I could almost see the strength emerge within her eyes. The grief and the heartbreak will still be present, but Rosita understands that she needs to keep fighting for herself and for her child.
We are finally seeing a lot of character development for Rosita, so I hope that this doesn’t mean that we may lose her. TWD has a tendency to give us these brilliant moments only to brutally rip these characters away from us, but I’m going to continue rooting for Rosita.
She’s strong and resilient, but she is also now finally lifting the guard around her heart to let others in and to truly be there for her child.
What’s next for Rosita? We’ll have to wait and see, but it looks like a potential romance with fan-favorite, Eugene, may not be too far off anymore. While I kind of just want Rosita to get away from all of this romantic drama, I know that Eugene selflessly cares for both her and Baby Coco so I’m willing to give this a chance, but I want to see Rosita continue to fight and transform into the warrior I know she can be.
Either way, I am really happy with season 10 so far and part of that is because we are finally getting some worthy character development from characters who have previously taken a back seat in other seasons.
I can’t wait to find out what happens next in the second half of the season and I am beyond excited to witness Rosita’s journey even more!
Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!
