The Walking Dead Season 8 trailer just hit Comic Con in San Diego and there are a lot of predictions that can be made based on the trailer, the comic book, and some other online fan prediction after Season 7 of the AMC series.

As such, we have “21 Predictions for Season 8 On The Walking Dead” based on the initial trailer from Comic Con. For our first prediction, let’s discuss the opening scene from the trailer, where Negan confronts Father Gabriel.

“I hope you got your sh*tting pants on,” begins Negan…

When this scene opens, it looks like Father Gabriel has got himself caught up in another mess. Like last year, when the Heapsters caught him in the pantry (well, he caught them, but they took him), he’s once again behind enemy lines as a prisoner.

Negan comes out from the dark and asks Father Gabriel about his pants, because “You…are about to sh*t your pants…” A smile then creeps across Negan’s face as Father Gabriel mutters “What?” and then gets quiet.

Outside, walkers surround the duo in the room they’re in.

There are a few ways to interpret this scene. It’s possible that Negan has somehow infiltrated the Safe Zone or some other area where Father Gabriel was hiding, but that’s the most unlikely scenario.

Most likely, Father Gabriel has somehow been captured again and Negan wants to use him as some sort of bait or tradeoff with Rick Grimes. Of course, the opposite of this could also be true.

It’s possible that Rick let Father Gabriel get caught to find out where Negan is hiding. More than likely, Negan is in one of the exterior barracks, like we saw in Season 6, rather than the actual Sanctuary.

Either way, this is likely bad news for Father Gabriel. Later, we see Negan slam Lucille on a table and this could be in the same room.

What do you think will happen to Father Gabriel next season?
