Rick’s War With Negan Will…
The war is on. Rick’s been double-crossed over and over, but now it looks like he’s got everyone he needs on his team. Maggie’s Hilltop and Ezekiel’s Kingdom showed up just in the knick of time.
Back at the Sanctuary, it looks like Negan’s lost his faith in Eugene, but he’s gathering the troops for war regardless. Whether or not he’s ready is one thing, but with Rick’s numbers, things are looking a little more even for both sides.
The war will start when the series returns.
The series won’t return until around October, but there are certain predictions that can be made based on the comics. The “All-Out-War” story arc lasts for 12 issues, but Season 8 will likely slow down the pace of the comics.
In addition to the battle scenes, we can also expect lots of casualties on both sides. We just lost Sasha and several other unnamed characters, but in the comics, we do lose Aaron’s boyfriend Eric (Jordan Woods-Robinson) and the tiger, Shiva.
Beyond these two deaths, Season 8 will also involve Dwight helping Rick.
Deaths, Betrayals, And Beyond
Another character that could be killed is Morgan. He has gone back and forth over and over again, and now he seems to be living in vengeance. Morgan died a long time ago in the comics, so he’s due for death in the near future.
Finally, there’s Eugene.
It’s been unclear which side he is truly on, but it seems to be whoever treats him the best. Many fans have written off Eugene (and when it looked like Rosita was going to kill him, I wasn’t surprised), but Rick needs him.
Eugene’s ability to manufacture bullets, plus his general knowledge of all things tactical make him useful for both sides. It’s almost strange we haven’t seen him making bullets for Negan yet, but that’s likely just around the corner also.
In addition to these possibilities, there’s also a time jump on the horizon.
Can you make it until October to see more Dead?
