‘The Walking Dead’ Fans Devastated By the Mid-Season Finale’s Big Final Scene
(All the spoilers ahead for the mid-season finale of AMC’s “The Walking Dead”) “The Walking Dead” left off with a pretty brutal final scene as it went into the mid-season break for Season 8, and plenty of fans are devastated. The mid-season finale saw the Saviors escape from their base, the Sanctuary, which has been surrounded by walkers for most of the season. With the forces of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) free, the war that Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his allies have been winning suddenly went another way. The Kingdom fell to the Saviors and King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) was captured,

New Promo For The Walking Dead Teases What’s To Come Next Year

After two months of building conflicts between the Alexandrians and their allies and Negan and his Saviors, things came to a head this week as The Walking Dead season 8 reached its explosive and emotional midseason finale.

In “How It’s Gotta Go,” all the ongoing plotlines from the front half of the season converged in some exciting ways. For one, it didn’t all go down quite as Rick had been hoping for. Despite his best efforts to run a tight ship, Andrew Lincoln’s leader has had to deal with a rogue element these past few weeks in Norman Reedus’ Daryl, whose gambit to ram a truck into the Sanctuary totally backfired. Instead of setting a horde of walkers on them, it freed them from their confinement, teeing up this week’s showdown as Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s villain set off for Alexandria wanting blood.

27 People Who Were Not Emotionally Prepared For The Walking Dead's Shocking, Fatal Twist

Gigantic spoilers for The Walking Dead below! Like, Huge spoilers! Well, you guys, it happened. The Walking Dead finally took my last remaining nerve, put it inside a blender, and hit "liquefy."

What are we going to do without that hat? Or the eyepatch? Or that Hair?! The Walking Dead is never going to be the same.

The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln Not Ruling Out A Rick/Morgan Reunion

The first crossover between The Walking Dead and its sister show Fear The Walking Dead is now on the horizon, with Lennie JamesMorgan Jones recently revealed to be the character set to leave the parent series and join the cast of the spinoff. It’s an announcement that has proven bittersweet for fans, who are simultaneously excited for the crossover and sad to see Morgan exit Twd.

Someone else who’s already missing Morgan is Rick Grimes himself, Andrew Lincoln. As the leading man of the zombie drama, the actor has had to say goodbye to many cast members over the years, and James’ upcoming exit is hitting him hard as he really enjoys exploring Rick and Morgan’s relationship.

Andrew Lincoln Wanted A Nude Scene On Last Week’s Episode Of The Walking Dead

Some actors might be uncomfortable about baring it all on screen in front of millions of viewers, but Andrew Lincoln isn’t one of them. In last Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead, Lincoln’s Rick Grimes was called on to strip down to almost nothing. But if the actor had his way, he would have filmed the scene stark naked.

To jog your memory, season 8, episode 7 “Time For After” saw Rick left in nothing but his underwear by the Scavengers as he was forced to do battle with an armoured walker. “I got to wrestle in boxer shorts all day. It was a really fun fight,” Lincoln commented about the scene. He just has one big regret.

“I was desperate to be naked. But they wouldn’t let me be naked! I said, ‘One take,’ I said, ‘Please, with just the cowboy boots. Let’s do that.’ And for some reason,

The Walking Dead’s Josh McDermitt On How He Wants Eugene To Die

People die so regularly on The Walking Dead that the cast of the zombie drama know full well that their role could disappear at any point. It must be tempting, then, to imagine the ideal way for your character to exit the show if and when the big moment comes.

At least, that’s what Josh McDermitt has done. The man behind turncoat survivor Eugene revealed to EW that he’s informed Twd director/producer Greg Nicotero about how he’d want his character to leave the series, and it’s at the hands of Andrew Lincoln’s Rick.

“I don’t know that there is anyone more fun to watch do a physically intense fight scene than Andrew Lincoln. I told him and Greg Nicotero (resident badass) that If Eugene were to die, I want to be choked out by Rick. Most actors have a “thing” — a look they can shoot to the camera,

‘The Walking Dead 8×07: Time for After’ Review

In the last season of The Walking Dead, Eugene (Josh McDermitt) became one of the Saviours, to pretty much protect himself and to stay alive. There was that hope though that he would still have some connection to his friends. This week, The Walking Dead looks at Eugene now, and just what he is willing to do to survive.

With Rick (Andrew Lincoln) still in the hands of the junkyard dwelling “Heapsters”, a group of his close friends look to take action of their own on the Saviours. Eugene makes it known to Dwight (Austin Amelio) that he knows the truth, and makes it clear that it has to end, and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) makes it clear to Eugene just how much he means to him.

Josh McDermitt has the power to make you feel for Eugene, but he is also able to play that other less likable side,

Chandler Riggs’ New Haircut Fuels Rumors That Carl Is Going To Die On The Walking Dead

In a show as heavily scrutinized as The Walking Dead, any apparently insignificant move by one of the cast members results in fans coming up with some new theory about what it could mean for the future of the series.

The latest example centres on an update Chandler Riggs – who’s played Rick’s son Carl Grimes since the very beginning of the hit AMC show – gave on his social media, sharing some photos (seen below) that revealed he’s cut his hair for an upcoming role in an unknown movie. Fans will know that this is Riggs’ first major change in appearance in years, as he’s let his own hair grow out with the character’s for a while now.

So, the news that he now has a mullet, for a different role, no less, suggests that he’s putting Carl behind him. As if this wasn’t

New Walking Dead Promo Teases Action-Packed Midseason Finale

The latest installment of The Walking Dead aired tonight and continued Rick Grimes and his allies’ all-out war against the Saviors, with several of the major ongoing storylines being moved along.

In “Time for After,” Andrew Lincoln’s survivor had to bargain his way out of his imprisonment at the hands of the Scavengers, as he attempted to recruit new soldiers for the fight against Negan. Elsewhere, Daryl carried out his rogue mission to plow a truck into the Sanctuary, allowing walkers to pile inside, but Michonne and Rosita proved to be not as on board with the plan as he and Tara thought. Meanwhile, inside, Eugene had to deal with the zombie problem as well as struggling with the knowledge of Dwight’s betrayal.

All in all, this was another solid hour of television for the show, and the plot of season 8 is continuing to move along nicely, leaving

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 8 – Episode 6: “The King, the Widow and Rick”

“People who aren’t leaders always think they know best”

Last week’s pit stop from the war between The Saviors and everybody else continues this week as the allied forces communicate to the various communities what has transpired so far – mainly that The Saviors are all but defeated. These stalling episodes are a much maligned trope of the show but the traditional war narrative has always welcomed time for the reflection.

The episode opens with troops returning to their respective communities and handing out notes, detailing the events that took place in the previous episodes, to those who remained. The Kingdom mourn their dead, having taken the heaviest casualties and we learn that King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) has become a depressed recluse.

We then jump over to Rick’s (Andrew Lincoln) subplot for the episode and it turns out that that long road he was heading down at the
