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

Lennie James Thinks Morgan Will Return To 'The Walking Dead'

Lennie James Thinks Morgan Will Return To 'The Walking Dead'

The eighth season of The Walking Dead has been a long, slow build toward a final confrontation between Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), but their relationship is rather complicated. Furthermore, one of the best things about Negan's imprisonment in the comics is the way it offers the opportunity to deepen his relationship with Carl, one of its most unlikely but strongest by that stage, which again can no longer happen. Things are going to have to change pretty significantly, however, now that Carl has died.

Meanwhile, the rest of Team Family and everyone at Hilltop was prepping to go to war.

Just as planned, Rick kills the decoy group, and Ezekiel finds the map to lead them to Negan.

Of course, the two biggest obstacles in their way are Rick and Michonne. As Negan was starting to listen, Rick reached out and slashed his throat with a piece of broken glass, wounding, but not killing him. He let Rick know that they were trapped and he had some of Rick's friends captive including Gabriel and Dwight. One problem: Eugene made a decision to sabotage the Saviors by making bullets that would backfire instead. Even Negan ended up being injured. At this point, Gabriel throws himself out of the vehicle, but Eugene and Negan find him in the woods and load him back up. And Jesus, you know, he would not have killed the surrendering Saviors, but he's not Morgan.

The Saviors did indeed look to have the upper hand as they suddenly appeared over a rise, outnumbering Rick's group. Rick was on the ground; Negan was about to brain him with Lucille and Rick asked for a 10-second reprieve "for Carl". Maggie was not pleased to hear this, and started to freak out, both screaming and crying. Michonne holds Maggie back as she screams that they have to make it right and that the war isn't over until Negan is dead.

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. Negan's reign is over. It was revealed that Daryl was also in the meeting and in on the plan. The Saviors are happy to rebuild and find a new way to work with the other communities. As the convoy of Saviors approaches, those who remained at the Hilltop start evacuating while Tara and Alden choose to hang back and fight to buy them more time. And yet, Rick agreed - reluctantly - to take Morgan into battle, where he continued to kill indiscriminately. It would betray that character if she were depicted similar to Alpha, who is remorseless and uncaring, the kind of mother who would allow others to abuse her daughter.

Dwight ends up leaving to go after Sherry, after being driven out by Daryl and being told never to come back.

I really loved the last season of Fear the Walking Dead, so I was a bit unsure about this episode.

"When I read the script, I was a bit concerned when I slit his throat, because up until now, Jeffrey Dean Morgan has been incredible, 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".

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).
