What That 'Walking Dead' Finale Twist Could Mean for the Show's Future

17 April 2018

What will this mean moving forward?

You'd be forgiven if you did a double-take as Fear the Walking Dead's Season 4 premiere began.

Season 8 of The Walking Dead ended Sunday night with the zombie-apocalypse drama's two warring factions facing off in a field. Not to mention that, given The Walking Dead has basically turned from Rick's show into Negan's, he's really outstayed his welcome already, and the prospect of seeing more of him in whatever wounded state he takes isn't an enticing one. She's been with the series since Season 2 and has taken on more responsibility over the past year, so Kang is up to speed with the story and where it's going. The girl is Alicia, (Alycia Debnam-Carey) who quickly pulls a blade on Althea as Nick (Frank Dillane), Victor (Colman Domingo) and Luciana (Danay Garcia) burst from the ditches to hold Morgan and John at gunpoint as the episode ends with Althea curiously asking them, "So what the hell is your story?" One of the only other shows now airing which does the 16-episode format is Suits, and even that goes for a 10/6 split to make for rollercoaster ride of a final stretch to a season.

They likely won't get it. That Georgie bartered for music suggests the new Walking Dead may not only be calmer and more expansive in its view of the world, but also more strategic and more cultured. Heck, an 18-month break might even work wonders for both the cast and crew, who look to be going through the motions thanks to the hectic workload. As they were walking along a hill, they looked out over a vast landscape and it was revealed that behind a spiked fence was a massive horde of walkers. They visited Morgan at the Heaps, trying to get him back with them. However, Jesus has constantly preached peace over violence, so it's a mystery as to why he would support making a move against Rick and Michonne. That's interesting. That's new.

Fear the Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on AMC.

As the episode opened, Negan held all the cards, having duped Rick & Co. with fake battle plans that made them think they had the drop on the Saviors.

Maggie entering the second trimester of her pregnancy (I think, just how long has it been?!), it remains to be seen whether she'll have a massive role to play - but she's too engaging to be left in the shadows while the men do all the heavy lifting. Rick repeated Carl's vision for the future as he and Negan stared deep into each other's eyes and stood uncomfortably close.

So "All-Out War", an often frustrating tale, is finally over. It was before Eugene was taken, we had had that storyline.

Here's something fans of The Walking Dead can always agree on: everything means something. Here's how the season 8 finale's ending could really play out, according to the comics.

Seriously. It's a exhausted trope now. "So, we're gonna bide our time, wait for our moment, and then we're gonna show him".

Yes, I'm contradicting myself slightly, but following the comics in this instance (by simply introducing the Whisperers, but not copying their entire arc) would only help the show.

Rick and Michonne tell an injured Negan in "Wrath" that he will be evidence of civilization.

You want a new story with a brand-new narrative, as Scott Gimple described it? Rick said he was doing this to honor his late son Carl, who envisioned a better life for everyone. It's time for someone else to step up and send us into a brand-new era for the show.

"It was a very long time ago".
