Where’s Negan In The Premiere?

The trailer for Season 8 of The Walking Dead tells us a great deal, but there’s still a lot to learn and presume. More than likely, the premiere will begin with Rick’s gang attacking the Saviors on their home turf.

What’s interesting about the trailer, however, is that we don’t see much of Negan and we don’t see Eugene at all. It’s possible that Negan no longer trusts Eugene after what happened with Sasha.

Either way, we predict Negan won’t be in the Sanctuary.

More Outposts, More Saviors To Come

When the series returns, it’s likely we’ll discover that Negan actually has several other outposts full of armed men. It’s likely that he will head to one of these in order to lead his men from afar.

There were also some rumors going around that actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan wasn’t on set a great deal for the first few episodes. With that in mind, we’re thinking we’ll see less of Negan in Season 8 while Rick takes out his pawns.

There will also be some major casualties when the show returns.

If Season 8 of The Walking Dead follows the comics, it’s possible that both Shiva the Tiger and Aaron’s boyfriend Eric will be killed right away. In the trailer, we even see two instances where it looks like this happens.

Carl is fighting off a walker in the woods, but he appears to be laying on top of something that looks an awful lot like a wounded or murdered tiger. Later, in a shootout, it’s possible that Eric is one of the men to get killed.

Both of these actions will drastically change the characters of Aaron and King Ezekiel, which will cause both of them to grow. It’s also somewhat possible for the King to be killed later this season.

What else do you think might happen in the season premiere?
