In the final moments of The Walking Dead‘s 7th season, we see the characters we’ve grown to love uniting and finding power and camaraderie in a common goal. Negan can no longer stand as the relentless ruler, and he must be stopped – there’s not a moment more to waste.
Season 8 of TWD is going to be an all out war, and AMC provided fans with the first look at the series today at San Diego Comic Con. There are moments of surprise, moments of hope, and moments of power. In those moments, the truth proves again that strength truly lies in heart and togetherness.
It’s time to fight and only one side will come out victorious.
We’ve been waiting for this moment since, well, season 7 ended. After the heartache and the ups and downs we saw play out in front of us leading up to the true war against Negan – we’re confident that this is where the tables truly turn. Rick says it best, ‘This world is ours.’
‘When I first met him, Jesus said my world was gonna get a whole lot bigger. Well, we found that world, we found each other, that bigger world is ours by right. Those who use and take and kill – we end them. With everything we’ve beaten, everything we’ve endured, everything we’ve risen above, everything we’ve become…no matter what comes next, we’ve won. We’ve already WON.‘
Selfishness and greed won’t win a war, yes…it’s helped Negan and the Saviors win battles in the past, it’s helped them strike without warning and take without asking but they’ve never been up against a group this united. There’s a quiet whisper of confidence in the wind at Alexandria, there’s the desire to take back what’s theirs.
From the Hilltop to the Kingdom and Alexandria – we’re placing our bets on good overpowering evil. Are you?
