PaleyFest LA 2017: The Walking Dead Prepping for Season 8 and Beyond

PaleyFest LA 2017: The Walking Dead Prepping for Season 8 and Beyond

Recently, showrunner Scott Gimple teased that the finale is "quantum intense".

Was Sasha's attempt to bond with Rosita her way of settling any lingering, let's say "karmic debt" in case she doesn't make it out?

Possible TWD spoilers are ahead.

"Do you want to hear it?" I remember I once read that Norman Reedus has the best cry face, which I agree with.

Cohan, whose character is now in a position to usurp Gregory (Xander Berkeley) at the Hilltop, suggested that the tone leading up to the finale is hopeful, but that it's also brutal.

Season 7 episode 16, which is the finale, will be aired on April 2 and it's titled The First Day of the Rest of Your Life.

In light of that history, Sunday's moment is even more meaningful.

"All Out War" is the 12 episode arc that starts at issue 115 where Rick and his newfound army march to Savior HQ, and in this ensuing fight, the fortress's wall is breached by Holly, who ends up captured. Although because I'm working on season 8 now, the foot is on the gas again! I think that's an inspiring thing, and I think it's a very poetic thing: "two women, coming together for this mission". As Tom Payne told TVGuide.com at the show's PaleyFest panel in Los Angeles Friday night, "It's the end of the world".

Tara was the first openly gay character introduced in The Walking Dead during Season 4, revealed when she began a relationship with Alisha while the two were living in Caesar Martinez'scamp. "And I've got yours", Rosita replies. "It's very much a conclusion that promises this epic story ahead....it's about setting up this big epic tale to come".

If the shadowy figure is Daryl Dixon, that means he recovered from his teary talk with Maggie just in time to ride like a bat out of hell over to the Saviors' camp.

Daryl's clearly beating himself up over Glenn's death. "She found out the truth and went immediately to the Kingdom", Gimple pointed out to TV Insider.

Below are the episode's five major talking points. However, after Benjamin's death and killing Richard, Morgan is determined to kill Negan's men. It was a attractive bonding time for us.

As fans know, Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) and the Scavengers agreed to help Alexandria defeat Negan. I patch myself up, I don't die... And a fan asked if the series would end with Rick having been in the hospital the entire time. She fumbled her way through an apology, but Jesus was nice enough about all of it. Chances are they would have been discovered or the Hilltop would have suffered in some way. It's not a big deal.

And the creative team's tactic of splitting the sprawling cast up into different episodes so characters' storylines can enjoy a little more focus can pay dividends - it's just that this one feels more like filler aside from a couple of killer moments (literally, in the case of the Saviour taking a bullet to the noggin).
