Review: The Walking Dead – Season 8 – Episode 8: “How it’s Gotta Be”

Oh dear… It started so strong, stumbled in the middle and, well, imploded towards the end. With its mid-season finale The Walking Dead left a clear message: all hope is lost. The show unfortunately seems more focused on drawing seasons out, padding them for a longer run and preventing any closure to storylines therefore restricting development and growth. What’s worse is all this meandering leaves the show feeling like a stale stew of left-over meat.

The episode opens with Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) and The Scavengers ditching Rick (Andrew Lincoln) once the Saviors inside The Sanctuary start shooting. Why he felt that getting them onside was important is beyond us. If his plan had played through like he intended, they wouldn’t need The Scavengers and considering they seem to side with the victors regardless, they could have been confronted once the war was won.

Elsewhere, Enid (Katelyn Nacon) and

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 8 – Episode 7: “Time for After”

“All you have to do to be on the winning side is stand down. Do nothing.”

This week’s episode should come with a pre-warning: beware this episode may contain unhealthy amounts of Eugene (Josh McDermitt). We have nothing against the nonsense spouting wimp in particular, honest, but of the myriad of characters the show has to offer Eugene would most certainly be at the bottom of our “a whole episode dedicated to” wish list. In fact we would have even preferred Any of the other lieutenants. And yes we hear you nit-pickers in the back purring – we know that Eugene doesn’t take up all of the screen time in “Time for After” but he is without doubt the protagonist and the majority of the episode is concerned with him and the decisions he needs to make.

Anyway, let’s take a look at the episode.

The Walking Dead: The Plausible (and Disgusting) Reason Father Gabriel Might Be Sick

In typical Walking Dead fashion, season eight episode "The Big Scary U" saved almost all of the action for the last few minutes. In addition to a mysterious helicopter and a heartbreaking revelation about Negan, Father Gabriel appeared to fall gravely ill. Actor Seth Gilliam would only reveal to Popsugar that his character is "Uh . . . sick," rather than any concrete details, but a fan on Reddit seems to have uncovered an interesting (and disgusting) reason for why the ill-fated preacher might be suffering. If the show follows the comics, we know that Father Gabriel won't meet his demise until much later. That being said, it doesn't mean they won't thrust the character right up against the edge of death to pump up the drama in the meantime.

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 8 – Episode 5: “The Big Scary U”

“Wanna’ know why people are gonna’ start dying in there? Because I’m not there to stop it.”

It was inevitable, and we’ve had a good run, but this week we slip into filler territory, and whilst this is somewhat disappointing, “The Big Scary U” at least offers some good performances and bit of character development. It also offers a much needed glimpse into the life of The Saviors, in particular Negan’s top lieutenants.

We open the episode with a series of flashbacks, another overly-used trope by the show. First, we witness Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) preying before the assault on The Sanctuary in episode 1. We then move on to the moments leading up to the assault yet this time from the point of view of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his trusted council. His council is made up of the expected – Dwight (Austin Amelio), Simon (Steven Ogg) and

‘The Walking Dead 8×05: The Big Scary U’ Review

While it may seem that the last few weeks has been all out war in The Walking Dead, we’ve also known that a Negan episode was on the way. This week we get back to his situation, and get a rare confession from the character….

With Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) trapped together, they learn some things about each other. The other Saviours looking for a way to save their leader, soon realise that they have even more problems closer to home. While all of this is going on, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) sees something that is more than a little surprising.

For fans of the comic book version of The Walking Dead, you’ll know that there is a one-shot comic called Here’s Negan. This features the story of the character giving an insight into his origins. This week we get to hear about the television show origins,

The Walking Dead season 8 episode 5 review: The Big Scary U

Ron Hogan Nov 20, 2017

8.5 The Big Scary U

Negan has been the show's longest-running villain, and there's a reason for that. Negan is one of the more popular characters from the comic book continuity, he's played by one of the better actors on the show, and he's running a massive network of thugs and murderers who keep the kinder communities under his thumb and keep his Saviors well stocked up on pickles and ammunition. He's also the only person holding that organisation together, and without Negan's presence, the Saviors will return to what they were prior to his arrival—squabbling gangs shooting at

[Warning: this story contains spoilers for season eight, episode five of AMC's The Walking Dead, "The Big Scary U," as well as major spoilers from the comic books on which the show is based.]

Given its premise, AMC's The Walking Dead is a series steeped in impossibilities — and with its latest episode, it just began a story most people would have found impossible beforehand: Negan's redemption.

The Walking Dead: What's Really Going on With Father Gabriel?

Warning: spoilers for The Walking Dead ahead. Father Gabriel opens The Walking Dead's "The Big Scary U" episode Sunday night with a prayer: "You've given me redemption," he prays, "and it's that redemption that makes me no longer fear death." Sounds like a harbinger. Is it? There's definitely a big reveal involving Father Gabriel at the end of the episode, but it's more complicated and uncertain than the opening scene implies. Popsugar spoke to Father Gabriel himself - actor Seth Gilliam - to get some insight on the episode. "Uh, he's sick," Gilliam said with a laugh when asked whether Father Gabriel was turning into a walker in that final scene. "That's as far as I can go."

‘The Walking Dead 8×03: Monsters’ Review

In last week’s episode of The Walking Dead we saw a character from the past come back to haunt Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and this week we find out his purpose. Just what is the line between the Saviours and Rick’s group? Is there even a difference anymore?

With the Saviours moving in for a counter-attack Rick and his allies have to fight back. His blast from the past though raises interesting questions that relate not only to Rick, but also to people like Tara (Alanna Masterson) and Morgan (Lennie James).

What we see this week for Rick is a wakeup call that he has had in the past. When he is compared to The Saviours and Negan, no matter how he argues against it, the truth is there. His actions hint at the fact that he is going too far, even if the methods he uses are needed.

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 8 – Episode 1: “Mercy”

The Walking Dead returns, and it’s decidedly more to-the-point in a momentum shifting opening episode.

Season 7 ended on the dissatisfying cliffhanger of Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the gang’s failure to usurp Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), testing many a fan’s patience in the process. The season was compiled of plenty of slow-burning episodes that teased a payoff that fizzled out to not much more than a minor twist and a quick shot of a tiger mauling a dude.

So it is fair to say, after a series of mediocre seasons, that it is about time one of the biggest shows on television got its act together.

The opening episode to the show’s eighth season certainly demonstrates the show-runner’s intent to get to the point a bit quicker. We open the episode with the Hilltop, Alexandria and Kingdom crews coming together in preparation for all out war.

‘The Walking Dead 8×01′ Review

When a show reaches its 100th episode fans are often treated to something special. In the season finale of The Walking Dead we get to see Rick (Andrew Lincoln) as an old man, but all is not as it seems… After the events of last season, Rick and his group, along with members of The Kingdom and Hilltop plan an attack on Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and the Saviours. When the plan is put into motion, will the attack have the impact that Rick hopes it will?

Seeing Rick as an old man, enjoying moments with his family and Michonne (Danai Gurira) tease a look into the future. This future though is obviously not real. We also see a different version of the future, though with a younger Rick. This Rick looks broken, which hints at some kind of tragedy. It teases that Rick may dream of the perfect future,

‘The Walking Dead’ Showrunner on Why Rick Couldn’t Aim for Negan, and When Those Flash Forwards Will Be Explained

‘The Walking Dead’ Showrunner on Why Rick Couldn’t Aim for Negan, and When Those Flash Forwards Will Be Explained
[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers from the Season 8 premiere of “The Walking Dead.” Proceed at your own discretion.]

Advantage: Rick Grimes. As marketed for months, the “all-out war” between Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) finally began in the Season 8 premiere of “The Walking Dead,” and it does appear like the Alexandria/Hilltop/Kingdom alliance has an early lead.

At the end of Episode 1, “Mercy” (which also doubles as the series’ landmark 100th installment), Negan looks to be in a tough spot — stuck in a shipping container, with Gabriel (Seth Gilliam), surrounded by walkers. But the battle with the Saviors has just started, and it’s sure to get more brutal before it’s done.

Nonetheless, there’s a bit of hope in “Mercy,” thanks to mysterious flash-forwards that show a dream-like future in Alexandria, where life is peaceful. Rick, sporting his own David Letterman-esque longbeard, wakes up to Michonne, Carl and a slightly older Judith, bouncing to “Weird Al” Yankovic’s “Another One Rides the Bus.

‘The Walking Dead’ Review: ‘Mercy’ Celebrates 100 Episodes of Abject Misery

‘The Walking Dead’ Review: ‘Mercy’ Celebrates 100 Episodes of Abject Misery
Previously…

Last season, “The Walking Dead” had one of its biggest audiences ever for its worst-ever episode, and the show subsequently lost a number of viewers most shows would kill for, while still remaining a ratings powerhouse.

Rick and the others encountered new communities like the Hilltop (led by Gregory, who sucks) and the Kingdom (led by King Ezekiel, who rules). Both communities wound up rallying to Rick’s side, presumably because they were tried of Negan’s endless speechifying. Eugene went full heel, becoming a higher-up in the Saviors, while Savior lieutenant Dwight agreed to be a mole for the resistance. Finally, Sasha killed herself in a convoluted attempt on Negan’s life, because she had to go trek to the stars. Whew!

The Walking Dead season 8 premiere is a thank you letter to fans

The premiere episode of The Walking Dead season 8 is apparently a thank you letter to the fans.

The first episode of the new season is just around the corner, and fans are anticipating what the hit zombie show has in store for them this time around. The show isn’t quite as popular as it once was but the series’ producers want to thank those that are still with the show in season 8’s opener.

Executive producer Greg Nicotero has told Variety that the 100th episode is “a thank-you letter” for those that have stuck around since the beginning.

“There are probably two or three sequences in the first episode that I was particularly excited about doing that people will instantly recognize. It’s sort of a thank-you letter for people who have been with us all along and nodding to little things here and there. Some of them might be a little more obvious,
