The rest of Rick’s group – Michonne, Carol, baby Judith, Daryl, Morgan, Father Gabriel, Rosita, Maggie, Tara, Enid, Aaron, Eric & Eugene (more on him later) all made it lớn the kết thúc of the year. Michonne took a serious beating at the hands of a Heapster, but won out. Rosita was shot in the battle but looks lớn be recovering (Christian Serratos’ real-life pregnancy may be behind that move). & the rest of them came close lớn death several times…

After he broke Negan’s no-fighting rule, provoking Glenn’s death, a grief-stricken Daryl was taken by the Saviors as insurance khổng lồ make sure that Rick complied with their demands. Daryl’s stay at the Sanctuary was harrowing. Tortured by ‘Bizarro-Daryl’ Dwight, he was kept naked và filthy in a cell, fed dog-food sandwiches và forced not only to look at a photo of Glenn’s mangled remains, but also to lớn listen to cheerily upbeat nightmare Easy Street on loop. Despite all that though, Daryl still refused to submit to lớn Negan. He was punished, humiliated và used as a dogsbody but through it all, remained Daryl Dixon. When Dwight’s ex-wife and Negan’s current wife Sherry decided enough was enough & absconded from the Sanctuary a second time, she slipped Daryl the means to lớn escape (to trang điểm for that time she and Dwight betrayed him and stole his crossbow and motorcycle). Daryl got out of his cell, killed Fat Joey, recovered Rick’s Colt Python, retrieved his bike, met up with Jesus and drove khổng lồ Hilltop where he & Rick shared a teary reunion.

Daryl’s guilt over Glenn’s death continued (he can’t even look Maggie in the eye in The Other Side, if you notice), until Maggie told him she would never blame him because, like Glenn, Daryl is one of the good things in this world.


Daryl joined Rick’s group on their visit to lớn the Kingdom, where they reunited with Morgan và asked Kingdom leader ‘King’ Ezekiel for help fighting Negan. Needing to lớn lay low from the Saviors, Daryl hid out there, getting to know Ezekiel’s pet tiger Shiva & trying khổng lồ convince Morgan to lớn lean on Ezekiel to join the fight. Daryl also worked out that Morgan had lied about Carol setting off on her own & tracked her down to the solitary cottage where she’d pulled a Garbo & said she wanted to be alone (a goal not really achieved thanks lớn multiple interruptions from Ezekiel, who seems sweet on her, his people, và Morgan).


*
Carol and Daryl’s reunion was almost as moving as the moment he shared with Rick at Hilltop. Over dinner, he tried khổng lồ protect her by lying about what had happened with the Saviors và not revealing that Abraham and Glenn had been killed. She later learned the truth from a clearly suffering Morgan after he’d broken his no-killing rule another time, which motivated her lớn leave the cottage to lớn him & go khổng lồ the Kingdom to lớn prepare for battle. Carol và Ezekiel shared an intimate moment when she was being nursed back to lớn health at the Kingdom when she called him out on his courtly fairy tale bullshit. He told her the truth – his name really was Ezekiel & he hadn’t tamed Shiva but was a zoo keeper at her enclosure and a thành viên of an amateur dramatics society who’d played a few kings in his time. He’d created the King Ezekiel persona khổng lồ give his people something to lớn believe in and follow. The tiger was mostly for the optics.

After killing a Savior khổng lồ save Carol’s life at the over of season six, Morgan remained steadfast in his pacifism until a plan enacted by Kingdom member Richard lớn draw Ezekiel into rebellion against Negan backfired, resulting in the death of Benjamin, a young man Morgan was training in Aikido và whom he clearly associated with his dead son Duane. Richard had deliberately hidden part of the tribute the Kingdom were forced to pay to lớn the Saviors khổng lồ provoke them into killing him, thereby provoking Ezekiel into revenge against Negan. The Saviors killed Benjamin instead, so Morgan, upon realising Richard’s plan, strangled him to lớn death in a brutal scene. Morgan later joined the Kingdom fighters in their assault on Negan at Alexandria, but it’s fair to say was not left in good mental health.

Over at Hilltop, the farming community housed in a colonial period museum, there was trouble for Maggie and Sasha. They’d gone there after Glenn và Abraham’s deaths to get medical treatment for pregnant Maggie, bury their men’s bodies và hide from Negan, who was told Maggie had died from her illness (cunningly, Father Gabriel showed Negan a nhái grave to lớn convince him she was dead). Hilltop leader Gregory tried khổng lồ sell out Maggie and Sasha to lớn the Saviors the first chance he had, but didn’t succeed. Jesus, Maggie, Sasha & Enid (the latter of whom had come to lớn Hilltop to put green balloons on Glenn’s grave in tribute to their season six adventure) all recognised Gregory as a threat, & it became clear that Maggie would make a far stronger và better respected leader for the community, especially after she & Sasha defended the Hilltop almost single-handedly from Walkers let in by the Saviors as a punishment.

Meanwhile, Alexandria received several visits from Negan & his gang over the course of the season. Negan took special pleasure in humiliating Rick và his people, taking their mattresses, for instance, only to lớn set fire khổng lồ them on the road outside. They took what they pleased & emptied the Alexandrian arsenal, necessitating a season-long search for guns from Rick’s group. Through it all, Rick tried to keep his people alive by refusing lớn fight back, despite Michonne wanting to lớn stand up khổng lồ the Saviors. He took the punishment and followed the rules until Michonne finally convinced him of the need for revolt.

Carl was way ahead of Rick on that point, having earlier stowed away in one of the Savior vehicles on a solo mission lớn kill Negan. He was joined by Jesus but tricked him into leaving the truck before entering the Sanctuary, where Carl killed two of Negan’s men và was captured. Negan took a shine to Rick’s son, giving him a tour of his realm & demonstrating the absolute nguồn he held over his people. He forced Carl to lớn take off his bandage and made him cry about his disfigurement before apologising và genuinely seeming to lớn show remorse. Carl told Negan that he và Rick are his weakness & that he should have already killed them.


Negan took Carl back lớn Alexandria, where he discovered the existence of baby Judith & generally creeped everyone out while leaning backwards và grinning a great deal. Rosita, mad for revenge, took aim at Negan using a bullet she’d forced Eugene to lớn make for her và a gun she’d taken from a Walker và hidden. The bullet hit Negan’s bat Lucille instead, so Negan had a Savior cut Rosita’s face, kill Olivia as punishment, & take Eugene (who’d confessed lớn making the bullet) back khổng lồ the Sanctuary.

The second half of the season involved Rick’s tìm kiếm for guns to lớn wage war against Negan. After a mysterious new group followed Rick & Aaron after they retrieved a stash of goodies from a boat, Father Gabriel was taken hostage by the same group. They were the Heapsters, junkyard scavengers who later captured Rick’s group when he’d tracked down Gabriel. After passing a demo in which he had to kill a spike-covered walker, Rick and the Heapster leader Jadis made a deal. They would aid them in the fight against the Saviors in exchange for lots of guns.

Tara, meanwhile, who’d been absent on a supply run with Heath since the attack on the Savior Satellite Post in season six, had found lots of guns. After a Walker attack in which she was separated from Heath, she washed up on the shore of a beach community called Oceanside, comprising entirely women. The group had previously encountered the Saviors, who had killed all their men và boys over ten after a failed uprising, and were now living in secret, killing any strangers they came across for their own protection. Tara escaped, but promised not khổng lồ reveal their location khổng lồ her people. After wrestling with the decision, she relented và told Rick about the weapons. They went to collect the guns, promising lớn return them when Negan had been defeated. Oceanside refused to join the fight.

Over at the Sanctuary, Eugene unexpectedly found himself on easy street. Having resurrected the old scientist lie for Negan’s benefit, Eugene was given plush digs, orangey tinned pasta, a huge jar of pickles, a gremblygunk & power. He was made Chief Engineer of the Sanctuary and unlike Daryl, fell right in line with Negan’s demands, utterly capitulating to lớn his new lord & protector, that weasel.

When Sasha broke into the Sanctuary on her one-woman mission to avenge Abraham’s death, she asked Eugene for a weapon to lớn kill herself, & he delivered her the suicide pill he’d prepared at the behest of Negan’s wives, then refused khổng lồ give khổng lồ them as he knew they were planning lớn use it to kill Negan. That’s what allowed her khổng lồ pull off the stunt that, for a while at least, saved the Alexandrians.

Still at the Sanctuary, after taking a beating for Daryl’s escape và getting a Dear John lưu ý from his true love Sherry, Dwight made a move against Negan. First of all, he protected Sherry by telling Negan she’d been killed & framing Dr Carson for Daryl’s escape. Then he followed Rosita and offered to be a double agent for Rick’s group. Tara and Daryl wanted to lớn kill Dwight (he’d killed her girlfriend Denise and tortured Daryl) but the group ultimately decided lớn trust him. Dwight told Rick that Negan was coming và had captured Sasha. Dwight created a road-block lớn slow the Saviors down en route to lớn Alexandria, giving Rick time khổng lồ prepare his rebellion.


*

It all ended with a huge battle. Rick’s group attacked the Saviors, whose sneaky alliance with the Heapsters meant the pendulum swung against the Alexandrians. Then Sasha made her shocking appearance, swinging the pendulum right back in Negan’s face, before the Alexandrians were once again overpowered. Finally, the cavalry arrived, comprising Maggie và the Hilltop fighters, Carol, Morgan, Ezekiel và the Kingdom soldiers, with tiger Shiva. The Saviors and Heapsters were forced khổng lồ retreat, but it is on.

The Walking Dead season eight starts in the US on Sunday the 22nd & here in the UK on Monday the 23rd of October.
