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.
All in all, the
Say it ain't so!
No one saw it coming, but The Walking Dead just delivered one of its most shocking deaths yet.
Rip Carl Grimes.
Yes, on Sunday's season eight midseason finale, the teenage son of series hero Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), revealed he had been bitten in the ribs by zombies a few episodes back, and is just about to die.
The episode didn't feature Carl's death, but Chandler Riggs, the actor who has played the character since season one, assures fans he's not bouncing back from it.
"Yes, Carl is going to die," Riggs told The Hollywood Reporter. "There's no way he can get back from that. His story is definitely coming to an end."
Riggs technically has one episode left in his series run, the 2018 midseason premiere, which airs on Feb
Sunday's super-sized The Walking Dead midseason finale closed the book on season eight for the year with one of its biggest episodes ever.
The AMC zombie drama based on Robert Kirkman's comics of the same name set the stage for the shocking death of one of the franchise's most important characters: Carl (Chandler Riggs). The son of the show's central hero Rick (Andrew Lincoln) revealed in the closing moments that he had...
The Walking Dead leading man Andrew Lincoln wants viewers of the AMC zombie drama to know that he was just as surprised by the events of Sunday's season eight midseason finale as they are.
Yes, it's true: co-star Chandler Riggs — who has played Lincoln's on-screen son for more than 100 episodes — is being written out of the series as Carl revealed to his father Rick in the closing...

All season long, the AMC zombie drama (which crossed the milestone 100-episode threshold with its season eight premiere) has seen the survivors of the apocalypse steeped in "All-Out War," one of the most violent and memorable arcs from Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard's comic books on which the show is based. Through the vast majority of the first seven episodes, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his allies held the upper hand, devastating the likes of Negan...
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.
“This job is, as I’ve said before, glorious, wouldn’t trade it for the world, but there is a stinger. There’s the fact that, I seem to
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,
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,

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,
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
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

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

This week, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) makes a visit to the junk yard to try to get Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) to change sides again. Ezekiel is left in mourning and gets a pep talk from Carol (Melissa McBride), and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) makes a decision about the prisoners that Jesus (Tom Payne).
While Rick, Ezekiel, and Maggie may be the focus of the episode this week, there are also things going on with characters that were in the background during the war. This includes Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Rosita (Christian Serratos). The confrontation they have with two of the Saviours shows they aren’t ready to
