'The Walking Dead' finale recap: 'The First Day of the Rest of Your Life'

  'The Walking Dead' finale recap: 'The First Day of the Rest of Your Life' Hang on to the world as it spins around/ Just don't let the spin get you down/ Think of moving fast/ Hold on tight and you will last Sasha listens to Donny Hathaway's Someday We'll All Be Free when the season 7 finale begins, her face illuminated only by the glow of her iPod. She's no longer in the cell at The Sanctuary; the rumble of the road accompanies the melody as she slips into a flashback, featuring a surprise return of Abraham. He wakes her from a nap before they bring Maggie to Hilltop, a trip that leads to his death. If it's true that life flashes before one's eyes in the face of death, then this is Sasha's moment of reflection. It's also a moment for the show to look back on all that's come before and, hopefully, move forward. This flash of Abraham and another of Maggie frame the extended finale of a season marred by the character's demise. In the morning, Negan brings a pancake breakfast, complete with a blueberry smiley face, for Sasha. Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life, he says, giving the episode its title. He explains that it's up to her to get things with Rick back on track after a little birdie revealed to him his plans for rebellion. (We'll get to which little birdie in a moment.) At Alexandria, the group is struggling to accept the surprise aide of Dwight, who claims he wants to help kill Negan.

Carl Weathers wants to work with Idris Elba.

The 69-year-old star - who played the loud-mouthed pugilist Apollo Creed opposite Sylvester Stallone in four 'Rocky' films - is a huge fan of BBC police drama 'Luther' and thinks Idris is incredible as the tough detective.

'Chicago Justice' star Weathers would love to drop into the show as an American criminal who Luther has to bring down and he's hoping his comments will lead to him getting a call from the team.

He told BANG Showbiz: ''I'm such a fan of 'Luther', it really is brilliant and I've got to give props to Idris because what he does with that character is really riveting. I would love to play a character in that whose very, very American but who comes to the UK, for whatever reason, and is involved in something he needs to look into. I love the BBC, I think the BBC creates some really great programming and I've seen enough of those shows to welcome a part. It certainly wouldn't be bad to have to live in London for a while.''

Meanwhile, Idris previously teased a 'Luther' film could happen.

He said: ''A film is on the wish list. I think John Luther could transfer really well to a film. We haven't quite got there yet, but yeah man, it could happen.''

And if a movie doesn't get the green light then the 'Jungle Book' star is happy to shoot another series for BBC One, despite his huge success in Hollywood.

When asked if he wants to return to the character on the small screen, he added: ''I'd like to. The audience loved John Luther and I don't think the story's over yet.''
