The Walking Dead Season 8 Finale Should've Killed Off SPOILER

The season four premiere of Fear the Walking Dead has been a much-anticipated kickstart for the series, as its timing with The Walking Dead's eighth season finale and its announced crossover character of Morgan (Lennie James) has interested fans with its bold departure from the norm.

Along the ride, Negan confesses that he's going to kill Rick and all of the communities.

At the Hilltop, Alden tells Maggie that most of the prisoners are heading back to the Sanctuary to make something out of it. "We're going to bide our time, wait for our moment and then we're going to show him", Maggie tells Jesus and Daryl. And yet, Rick agreed - reluctantly - to take Morgan into battle, where he continued to kill indiscriminately.

Madison may have her problems, but lack of affection for her children is not one of them (in fact, the biggest complaint about Madison through the first three seasons was how much she smothered her children). After the time skip in the comics, he became more emotional and self-deprecating, showing little concern for other people. And she's not giving up on making sure that Negan gets killed.

"Rick was wrong to do what he did". Two and a half seasons of Negan discussion in the real world has been plenty, and Negan's going to continue to be a major figure next season, because you don't keep an actor like Jeffrey Dean Morgan on the payroll and don't use him.

Unfortunately for her, Rick chose for his life to be saved and Michonne restrained her from doing anything. "They're coming for us, unless we stand together", he said.

In a shadowy room, straight out of the opening of The Godfather, de facto Hilltop leader Maggie firmly address right hand man Jesus.

In the final scene, Rick is "speaking" to Carl.

The resolution did not pass. 'It's about the last thing Trump should have said - take my word on this, ' Wallace said. And yet McKenzie did not rule out the possibility of future chemical weapons attacks by the Assad regime.


"When I read the script, I was a bit concerned when I slit his throat, because up until now, Jeffrey Dean Morgan has been unbelievable, and one of the greatest assets he has brought to the show is the fact that at the end of each season, he does a three-page monologue". When that didn't work, Rick straight up slashed Negan's throat with a piece of glass. This is him turning over a new leaf and deciding there's a different way forward....

Viewers now know that scenario is a possibility, although the finale shrewdly planted the seeds for future discord (this is a drama, after all), emanating from those who had been Rick's closing allies.

The Walking Dead season 8, episode 16, "Wrath," brought the end of the war against the Saviors - here's what went down! It was a solid plan but it failed because they didn't anticipate just how committed Eugene was to his work. "As Andy says, I don't think the story between, about the relationship between Rick and Morgan, is over yet".

The third season was probably the best season for both The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead. It was revealed that Daryl was also in the meeting and in on the plan.

The season finale for AMC's hit horror drama The Walking Dead aired in the United States last night, with an unexpected last-minute twist.

Rick gave a speech to the captured Saviors about how it's a new world for those who want to live in peace and fairness.

The Walking Dead will return for season 9 in the 2018-2019 TV season on AMC.

Granted, The Whisperers are introduced in The Walking Dead comics by ambushing members of The Hilltop, but aside from the ambush, the similarities stop there outside of what I think might have been a slight nod to the fan theory by having Alicia disguise herself behind her hair until Althea approaches her.
