The Walking Dead season 8 review: "Drawn out and insignificant"

'The Walking Dead' big finale question: Will Rick kill Negan?

But "Wrath" brings both groups out into an open field for the battle between the Saviors and Rick's group - or, rather, the battle between Rick and Negan.

And after a climactic battle in which many of Negan's followers, the Saviours, were wiped out by their own defective bullets, Rick seemed willing to do just that. 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 handsome sense - but not for long. Through his escape, it appeared as if Eugene had thrown in with Negan once and for all, but what seemed to be confirmation of Eugene's turn to the dark side was, in fact, just a ruse.

The all-out war with Negan is finally over. "Carl didn't know a damn thing", croaked a bleeding Negan. Negan has been the villain for two full seasons now, which have also been two of the most tiresome the show has ever delivered. "So I think it is ultimately a story about restraint rather than revenge and love rather than hate, which has always been integral to our show". "I hope that they are intrigued with these new characters, that they want to know more about them and they really like the way that they see the OGs interact with Morgan, who is an OG himself, and the new characters".

That's when Rick whipped out a knife and slashed Negan across the throat with one swift stroke. When Jesus asks what she's going to do, she says that they will build the Hilltop back up and make it work better than before. But by the end of the season 4 premiere, we see that all but Daniel are together again, and we're spared the trudging story of when and how they'll find each other.

Rick hasn't been the greatest leader, it's true, but if Gimple and company think the way to win back fans is a survivor mutiny I think there's trouble ahead for more people than Rick.

Is "The Walking Dead" going straight from All Out War to Civil War? When we last saw them, Madison, Alicia, Nick, Victor, Luci, and Daniel were all separated, namely by the explosion at the dam. Rick tells him that Carl wanted something bigger, and Negan is going to be a part of that too.

Tonight's The Walking Dead Season 8 finale on AMC should theoretically be unlike any season finale before it.

"Rick was wrong to do what he did".

"We are worse than we were", Morgan (Lennie James) told Rick near the finale's outset, a reference to their lost humanity, but also a fair description of where the show stands - commercially as well as creatively - compared to its dizzying apex. The Walking Dead season 8 finale might have wrapped up all the storylines it had with a tidy, twee little bow, but that doesn't stop it from feeling disappointing anticlimactic.

Of course, the two biggest obstacles in their way are Rick and Michonne. Until then, check out what we learned about Fear the Walking Dead's new character Althea from star Maggie Grace, and then head to our midseason premiere schedule and our summer premiere schedule to see what other shows are on the way.

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.
