The Walking Dead Season 8 Finale Ending Explained: Rick vs. Negan

16 Avril 2018

Fans will likely remember that whenever Morgan is in the junkyard at the beginning of the Season 4 premiere, he's got plants growing inside a bathtub. Keep reading at your own risk. Finally, Negan asks that Gabriel ride along so he can confess his sins. Find out more in The Walking Dead Season 4 premiere recap below, and be sure to watch the promo for next week's Episode 4.02, titled "Another Day in the Diamond", as well as a sneak peek in the players below! We were treated to not one but three montages of Rick and a young Carl walking hand in hand, hearkening back to Carl's farewell letter to his dad.

He doesn't even have a great deal to contribute to the plot, so would anyone really miss him?

Maggie, however, wasn't on board with sparing Negan, telling Jesus that Rick and Michonne were wrong.

It was confirmed that this season would see the war between Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) be resolved one way or another. Except when Rick et al got to that spot expecting to ambush Negan they heard his familiar whistle seemingly coming from all sides. How did Rick's group survive the trap Negan had laid out for them? "We have to end it, Rick". But this is him finally realizing that he has to choose a different way.

Eugene similarly aligns with his comic self, finally revealing himself to be #TeamRick.

As the heavily armed Saviors, whose firepower was bolstered by turncoat Eugene's round-the-clock bullet production, closed in, Negan gave the order to shoot - and everything changed. They visited Morgan at the Heaps, trying to get him back with them.

While Eugene and Rick fall back in line with their comic selves, others spin off. Maggie is the most interesting example of this, as her characterization feels pretty similar before it takes a surprise turn. And compared to Carl's untimely death midway through what's been a problematic season, the idea that the show would kill off a character many viewers are growing exhausted of, Negan's death made some attractive sense - but not for long.

Later, as she sits in her office at The Hilltop, she sows her discord with Daryl (Norman Reedus), an intriguing development, and Jesus (Tom Payne) which... why? Later, he heads to see Jadis and invites her to go to the community. And Morgan starts a new journey leaving Alexandria behind. "We're going to bide our time, wait for our moment and then we're going to show him", Maggie tells Jesus and Daryl. In the new season, he said Kang is taking the show to places it has not been before.

For many, The Walking Dead universe is getting stale.

"Timeless", 10 p.m. (KING): Wyatt and Rufus are forced to bring a 17-year-old John F. Kennedy with them to the present, where he escapes to San Francisco; the team must rescue him and return him to the past. The move is clearly a step in the right direction, though.

Alden seems to be angling to stay at the Hilltop, despite the fact that Maggie doesn't really want him there. He talks about how the communities have good people, and Al becomes curious as to why he left them, then. Negan's voice echoes as he taunts them. Pamela seems stern, but she's also compassionate.

There are a lot of deaths on television, but we're going in for the saddest on television.

And what happens to Negan?

As Negan had planned, Rick's group massacred the decoy Saviors at a road block that had been on Dwight's fake map, but Negan had planted another map on one of the doomed Saviors.
