TWD season 8 poster

The Walking Dead’s 100th episode was a nice start to season 8. Directed by Greg Nicotero, the season premiere focused on the beginning of Kirkman’s comic titled All Out War. Alexandria and the Hilltop are all ready for the battle against Negan and his Saviors. It seems like it was forever since I last saw the cast and crew grace the NYCC stage, and with the anticipation and after effects of that, I know the events of last night’s episode will set the tone for the entire season.

The story continues as Rick, Eziekial, and Maggie lead the fight for freedom. The episode was exciting but nothing out of this world. This season opener was a little low key compared to past season premieres. The best part was seeing a future Rick and the idea that age was creeping up on him. The scene came in the form of  a vision (this was how Rick saw his future.) Rick saw his family, Michone, Carl and maybe 8-year-old Judith; she looked around 8.) living a happy life. He also visualized the expansion of Alexandria. I know the festival they were referring to was in the comic books, so it was nice to see that reference in the vision.  I have a feeling that this season will take place over the course of hours and days when it comes to the war. I think that they already know where they want to take the show and how long it will last. I got a Better Call Saul feeling when I saw older Rick. I think the show will last until season 10. I hope it lasts longer, but I can’t imagine the actors playing these characters past 10 seasons. We will have to wait and see.

Now the end of the episode was very interesting because Gabriel left Rick to save Gregory and Gregory left Gabriel to die in the middle of the herd. Gregory is a piece of crap and should have died a long time ago. Gabriel was put in a bad situation and soon found himself in a trailer in the dark with Negan. This cliffhangs the episode, so we don’t know what is going happen, but I really hope that Gabriel opens fire on Negan and goes out the best way he can. In the scene Gabriel allows Negan to talk way too much, but at this point, it may be too late for him to react. I would be surprised if the two work together as a team to get out of there alive. What if Negan throws Gabriel out to get the Walkers attention and then makes a run for it? This could go so many ways, and I’m so excited to see what will happen next week.

Overall the episode was good, and it was great to see all the cast members interacting in one episode. I know it will be a great season!!

Happy 100th TWD
