The Walking Dead season 8 finale: is there a future for Negan?

Wrong again! Just as that band of bad guys was about to attack, Aaron and the women of Oceanside showed up and started hurling molotov cocktails their way. The only thing Lincoln is pretty sure will happen is that there will be lots of in-fighting between the different communities.

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.

Unlike the divisive finale of season 6, which ended just as Negan offed an unidentified member one of Rick's gang, season 8 mainly ended happily. They visited Morgan at the Heaps, trying to get him back with them. ComicBook.com asked star Andrew Lincoln about that and the man who's played Rick Grimes for the past eight years revealed that, while he hasn't read about it in the comics, he is familiar with the Whisperers and would be interested to see them in the series.

While we still don't know which character will be crossing over along with Morgan, several media outlets are speculating the involvement of characters like Norman Reedus' Daryl, Corey Hawkins' Heath and Lauran Cohan's Maggie. "And anyone that can't live with that will pay the price". "They're coming for us, unless we stand together", he said.

Some fans even interpreted that as a threat on Rick and Michonne's lives, which doesn't seem to be what Maggie is saying. Welcome back to society, criminal justice system!

You want a new story with a brand-new narrative, as Scott Gimple described it? That was the night Glenn (Steven Yeun) and Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) were killed. We have to end it. Later in the episode, Maggie, Daryl and Jesus began to plot against Rick & Michonne, possibly with the intent to kill them.

It was clear she hadn't stopped grieving and possibly never will. Rick's decision to spare Negan has split fans down the middle and may have unintentionally split his family. Make it thrive for the people who live here. "The ability to defend ourselves better".

We last see Negan in bed at Hilltop with a bandage around his freshly stitched throat, as Rick and Michonne explain the unique role he'll play in building the future of their "new world". After some more needling, he also begrudgingly agrees to travel with the two while he heals up from wounds suffered by the bandits.

Instead we got a moment that was so GIF-ably hilarious it might rank with some of the greatest slapstick of all time. I'm going to lead this place and make it work.

"Her", of course, was Dwight's wife Sherry. But Carl's letter has been weighing heavily on his old man. Featuring a rebooted narrative and the debut of Morgan from "The Walking Dead" (Lennie James), Sunday's premiere was clearly created to attract "TWD" fans who were not regularly watching "Fear".

After almost killing Henry with his bo staff and seeing visions of Jared, it was clear he was a danger to those around him, those he truly cared about. He then told Carol it was time for him to go. We're talking about this stuff now. When asked if Strand is a good person, Domingo responded that he's not sure on that front, but doesn't want the character to die because he's awesome and very good at producing soundbites.

"He's wiping his eyes and I said to him: 'That's the moment I knew The Walking Dead was something special'".

Maggie and Alden are totally going to hook up, right? Rather than allowing her prisoners to take up residency in permanent jail cells, Maggie reintroduces corporal punishment to The Walking Dead universe.

Could that horde be hiding the next group Rick's people go up against in the comics, The Whispers? Negan has been the villain for two full seasons now, which have also been two of the most tiresome the show has ever delivered. "The fact that it's nice to see something like that in an age when everything seems so combative and so aggressive was just the frosting on the cake".

Granted in today's rating climate where decline is the norm for nearly everyone except Game of Thrones, the Season 8 finale results are a continuation of a trend that started in Season 6 for TWD, with the double killing Season 7 opener as a notable exception.
