The Walking Dead’s eighth season has wrapped, the war between Rick and Negan finally coming to an end (for now). The hour-long finale featured some massive scenes, the Saviours being betrayed and the future of the show hinted at. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Scott Gimple revealed some of the scenes that failed to make the final cut. “There was some really cool stuff with Negan at the Sanctuary sort of addressing the troops and seeing some of his own conflicts about what they’re facing,” he told the publication. “There was a lovely exchange between Rick, Michonne, and Maggie that was about the future. There was some great stuff [we had to cut] but I would say not only for time but also for flow.” TV preview 2018: Everything to look out for 16 show all TV preview 2018: Everything to look out for 1/16 Starring: Krysten Ritter, Rachael Taylor, Carrie-Anne Moss, David Tennant Start date: 8 … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead season 8 finale: Showrunner reveals deleted scenes
Walking dead season 6 finale
The eighth season of The Walking Dead has drawn to a close in earth-shattering fashion as All Out War - an arc which has shaped the show for the past two years - comes to an end. Rick has battled Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) for two agonising seasons after he mercilessly bludgeoned both Abraham and Glenn to death in the traumatic season 7 premiere. *Spoilers follow* Negan is alive and well in the comic books, even earning Rick's trust years on from events depicted in the TV series. As we just witnessed in the season 8 finale, the leader of his fallen faction The Saviours finds himself locked away as Rick's prisoner following the culmination of All Out War. He remains there for an unknown number of years, living proof that the Alexandrians were always in better stead to rebuild the world in a way that doesn't involve constant blood-spill.

Another The Walking Dead season finale, another series of scenes featuring our band of heroes surrounded by the enemy facing an uncertain fate. Only there's been a change in the wind - this is a very different show to what it was two action-packed if intermittently arduous seasons ago, and it shows. 'Wrath' puts the 'final' into finale and does so rapidly, an episode serving as the pay-off to the multitudes of introductions fans have contended with. The chapter of The Saviours and Negan - as we know them, anyway - is over. 'Wrath' ties its disparate plot points together by bringing all characters together for one final showdown which we were initially led to believe will either end with either every single Saviour or Alexandrian dispatched of. After two seasons, the culmination of All Out War - an arc in which the writers' willingness to place all its cards lost the show a number of fans - had no choice but to live up to unprecedented expectation, and its thanks … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead season 8 episode 16 spoiler review: Puts the ‘final’ into finale
The Walking Dead may have just wrapped up its current season but that doesn't seem to have prevented the writers from lining up next year's villain. Despite contending with a small matter of the final showdown between Rick and Negan, keen-eyed viewers noticed a little addition in the background which may be hinting at the anticipated addition of an even more terrifying faction than The Saviours. The scenes showing Rick lead his army toward The Saviours featured a moment in which they look out from the top of a hill and spot a huge horde of walkers in the distance. Continuing along the hill, the gun-toting warriors pass a series of poles which to the uninitiated seem like nothing at all. (Brandon Davis via AMC) In Robert Kirkman's comic book series the show is based on, poles similar to these are used as a territory-marking device by The Whisperers, a group led by a character named Alpha. Marking them out from the others is the way they disguise themselves as walkers, living among them … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead season 8 episode 16: Fans think finale set up The Whisperers as season 9 villains
