Kindness & Empathy
Rosita’s kindness and ability to feel for others allows her to keep a level head. She is often seen calming down members of her group when things get heated. Those close to her are able to express their fears and concerns (which must be a lot in the apocalypse) to her and receive comfort in return.
In the face of the zombie apocalypse, it is kind of expected that people will lose their cool. But not Rosita! From the comics, we know she is less psychologically damaged and more emotionally stable that those around her. This might be because she is a stronger individual.
(We Hope) To See Some of Her Culture
Just because it’s the end of the world, doesn’t mean you forget where you came from! Rosita’s background is rarely explored in the comics. We don’t even know her ethnicity beyond ‘Hispanic-American.’ No está bien! So we are suggesting, why don’t the producers of The Walking Dead do a background episode on Rosita? Before the apocalypse, what was she up to? We would love to see an episode that explores her culture!
(We Hope) She is Badass
There are not enough women who kick zombie ass on The Walking Dead! Why do the men get to have all the fun? We want Rosita to join the ranks of characters like Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and take down some walkers! They can form a group called Ladies Who Kick Ass. Maybe she will even get her own cool character weapon too, like Michonne’s katana.
Though her entrance to the show has yet to be announced, Rosita is slated as a recurring character for season 4. She even has the possibility of becoming a Season 5 regular! We can’t wait to see what they have in store for this chica!
The Walking Dead airs every Sunday on AMC at 9/8c.
