THE WALKING DEAD Prepares for War in Season 8’s Opening Scene

THE WALKING DEAD Prepares for War in Season 8’s Opening Scene

This Sunday, The Walking Dead‘s eighth season will begin with an adaptation of the long-awaited “All Out War” storyline. Now, the opening scene for the new season is online, and it features Rick Grimes seizing his Independence Day moment as he addresses the survivors from Alexandra, the Hilltop, and the Kingdom to declare that the world is theirs. Also, Rick fully intends to kill Negan himself.

The Walking Dead is playing with its audience by showing us the ending of this story just as it is getting into high gear. Did you notice the cane and flowers in that video? That’s from the flash forward of Old Man Rick, years after the events of this war have played out. We can say this because AMC has already spoiled it: Rick Grimes will make it out alive. Whether Rick stays intact remains to be seen, and nearly everyone else’s fate is unclear. A few of the characters have already outlived their comic book counterparts, but their luck won’t last forever.

There is something empowering about seeing the expanded cast finally reunited after they were kept apart for most of the seventh season. Even Dwight is somewhat welcomed into the fold, as he receives a critical warning about when Rick’s group intends to strike.

The Walking Dead season 8 will premiere this Sunday, October 22, on AMC.
