19 Major Things We Know About The Walking Dead Season 8 Thanks to the Trailer
The Walking Dead is set to return this October, but before it does, we have lots to talk about. Season seven is all about making alliances leading up to All Out War, and from what we can tell, the war is on between the Saviors and Rick's army in season eight. While it takes some time to get to the action, the trailer is packed with hints about what we're going to see in the new episodes. There are explosions, people are captured, and Negan is cranky. We've pulled out every important moment from the trailer, some you may not have even noticed, because the trailer moves so quickly.
Gabriel Has Been Captured . . .
. . . by Negan
Negan hopes Gabriel has his "sh*tting pants" on.
Dwight Finds a Note That Says "Tomorrow"
Possibly referring to the plan of attack?
There's an Important-Looking Gun
I count 43 tally marks.
Someone Is Inside a Storage Container
Rick's Crew Is Setting Traps
Jesus is the one covering this gasoline tank.
Carol and Tara Are Casually Surrounded by Walkers
They honestly don't seem bothered.
Jesus Is Either Learning to Fight From or Actually Fighting Morgan
Enid Is Asking to Help Aaron
This F*cking Guy Is Still Around
Go away, Simon.
These Dumpster Divers Are Still in the Picture
OK, I guess we need them to defeat the Saviors, but I still don't like them.
Maggie Is Becoming the Leader She's Meant to Be
Maggie is seen giving a Rick-esque rallying speech, presumably to their army. She's fulfilling her comic-book destiny as the group's new leader!
Carol Is Back and Taking No Prisoners
Carol has basically been forced out of seclusion — did you really think she would just knit in her cabin forever? — and is fully helping in the effort to take down Negan.
Daryl Is in Charge of Explosives
Remember the gasoline? Later in the trailer, Daryl is seen riding around and shooting at various points, triggering explosions. I'm not sure what part of the plan this is, but I support it.
Shiva Is Ready to Fight
We got see Shiva take out some bad guys on the season seven finale, but the fierce girl is back!
Negan Is a Sassy Baby
He's clearly interrogating someone in the trailer, and he's not happy with an answer. Aw, poor Negan needs a nap.
Someone Is Definitely in the Storage Container
Is that Rick? Stripped down to his skivvies?
Rick Is in a Serious Brawl
There are two points during the trailer when we see Rick in a physical fight with this bearded guy, but who is he?
Rick Is Old and Back in a Hospital
We have plenty of questions about the final shots of the trailer, which show a cane leaning up against a wall, some flowers, and Old Man Rick laying in a bed. Has it all been a dream? Is this the future? What's. Going. On.
