'The Walking Dead' recap: 'All-Out War' ends with Rick-Negan showdown

Michonne in The Walking Dead season 8 finale

Tonight's The Walking Dead Season 8 finale on AMC should theoretically be unlike any season finale before it. That's right, on The Walking Dead a man can have his throat slit open and survive. All their guns exploded in their hands, courtesy of defective ammunition designed by Eugene (Josh McDermitt), who had secretly switched allegiances again.

Morgan begins running. Carol chases after him. "You alive is gonna help show people that things have changed", Rick says.

Morgan went to see Jadis and invite her to go live with Rick, which she happily agreed to.

Maggie told Jesus that he and Rick were right about sparing the Saviors, but not about Negan.

At the Hilltop, Alden tells Maggie that most of the prisoners are heading back to the Sanctuary to make something out of it.

Daryl took Dwight out into the woods. He adds that if he comes back, he's going to kill him. They load him into the vehicle. Dwight drove to his and Sherry's house and found that she'd left a note for him that said "Honeymoon (infinity symbol)".

A serene Carol (Melissa McBride), realizing the value of community, returned to the Kingdom. "No, no, he killed Glenn!" she screamed, as Michonne held her back.


But when the Saviors prepared to start killing, all of the bullets backfired and killed them. Rick was wrong to do what he did.

Maggie lets Jesus and Daryl know that her plan for Hilltop is to build the community to be stronger, including making sure they can defend themselves in the future.

Rick and Michonne go to see Negan, who is recovering. Touched by Morgan's earnest advice to not be alone in this world, Jadis is moved to tell him her real name: Ann.

Later, it was revealed that Rick's plan for Negan includes locking him away and letting him live out the rest of his life in prison.

Rick sat at the tree, said "my mercy prevails over my wrath", and broke down in tears, finally mourning his boy. So she and Daryl are going to bide their time, and wait for the right moment, and then show Rick and Michonne that they were wrong. He says that he remembers the past and them walking along a path when Carl was a child. Now there's hope for a future, just as Carl pleaded Rick for. I was convinced after the previous episode that he'd completely gone "Negan", but in the end he did the right thing to help his friends. Viewing of "The Walking Dead" has already fallen off pretty dramatically, a byproduct of age, the overall gravity of a saturated TV marketplace and yes, missteps that the program has made along the way.

This is your last warning: if you do NOT want to be spoiled before watching The Walking Dead's season eight finale, stop reading. He managed to turn Denise's murderer into a conflicted human who represented a crucial plight in the new world: how do you maintain your humanity when your survival requires you to abandon it? The ending of the season premiere certainly set the Clark family (along with Strand and Luciana) up as antagonists to the newest members of Fear the Walking Dead, but there is little indication that they're playing The Whisperers, a group that disguises itself by wearing the skin of zombies.

It's no secret that Lauren Cohan has been looking for other work outside of The Walking Dead after she and AMC failed to agree on her contract renewal.
