Naturally, you will find Season 8 spoilers within this post.
After last night’s mid-season finale, we can pretty much guarantee that “The Walking Dead” is going to be making a devastating return next year. We saw at the end of the episode that Carl had been bitten by a zombie earlier in the season, but it won’t be until the second half of Season 8 that we really begin to feel the weight of his loss.
Carl, after all, isn’t yet dead. But his time is extremely limited.
When “The Walking Dead” returns in February, the war between Rick and Negan continues, and you can expect that Rick is no longer taking shit from anybody. Not that he’s been in much of a shit-taking mood for quite some time now, but the death of his son is sure to set Rick on a warpath the likes of which we’ve never seen before.
Check out the teaser for the back half of Season 8 below.
The series returns to AMC on Sunday, February 25 at 9/8c.
