The Walking Dead 8.1 FAQ
What’s it called?
Teleplay is credited to longtime showrunner Scott M. Gimple.
What says AMC?
“Rick and his group, along with The Kingdom and Hilltop, have banded together to bring the fight to Negan and The Saviors.”
Does the episode open with a flashback?
Maybe? In truth, there’s a lot of time-shifting this week. A lot.
How does it start?
“10:28,” says Tara.
What’s doing with Mullet Boy Eugene?
Still hanging with Negan.
The big news?
Expect an enormous time jump.
What else is AMC not telling us?
This episode is dedicated to the late George Romero. (Every episode should be, if you’re asking me.)
This episode doesn’t waste a lot of time and crams a lot of story into its first hour back. Daryl Vs. Cigarette Boy. Rick putting Negan’s axe to work. “I was in a meeting.” Tara. Yankovic. The bold time-jumps.
What’s not so good?
Once again, the good guys hold guns. There is nothing between those guns and Negan’s skull. Why are there no bullets in Negan’s skull?
How does it end, spoiler boy?
“We’ve already won!”
9 p.m. Sunday. AMC.
