Last night we witnessed the season 8 finale of “The Walking Dead”. I will warn you, stop reading now if you want to avoid spoilers.
Last night Rick, the people from Alexandria and the Hilltop went battle against Negan and the Saviors. When the Saviors lined up to take out Rick and the group, they were in for a big surprise when they pulled the trigger and their guns blew up in their hands. It turns out Eugene wasn’t the traitor he appeared to be. Good for him.
Now comes the important part, after Rick and Negan fought one on one they shared a moment. Rick brought Negan to tears talking about what Carl had dreamed of. Then, Rick cut Negan’s throat. But don’t worry, Negan’s not dead. Rick has him at Alexandria. But, there’s a problem, in the last moments of the finale Maggie, Daryl, and Jesus talked about building their defenses and dealing with Rick and Michonne. Maggie mad it clear what Rick had done with Negan was wrong.
Just as we thought the finale would wrap everything up it turned some of our favorite characters into villains. It looks Rick will have to watch his back. The two most level-headed characters Maggie and Jesus) are no longer on the same side as Alexandria.
In my opinion, “The Walking Dead” has made a huge mistake by letting Negan live and by setting the stage for the group to being ripped apart and a war between them brewing. Now, they’ve turned neighbors into enemies.
Many former fans have declared via social media that they have now officially given up on the show and I get it. What do you think? Will you keep watching?
