#Fear The Walking Dead #The Walking Dead

Judging by the preview image above, we could be looking at the end of Rick's (Andrew Lincoln) tenure on The Walking Dead.

This post contains spoilers from The Walking Dead Season 8, Episode 16 entitled "Wrath". The war with the Saviors meant fighting a very human enemy that favored all-out assaults with assault weapons. Then he got all teary-eyed; Rick got teary-eyed, too, and then he slashed Negan's throat.

Did you like the season 8 finale? Between laughter and the occasional typical TWD tears that fans usually cry, the Season 8 finale turned #SurvivorSunday into #WTFSunday in less than 75 minutes. He ordered Siddiq to save Negan, which caused Maggie (Lauren Cohan) to melt down and cry "it's not over 'til he's dead!". Morgan says he needs to go so they can finish it. "We are worse than we were", Morgan told him. Rick thanks him after.

Morgan's still not right: Somehow the sight of former Savior prisoners coming back to the Hilltop from a zombie-killing run got Morgan so worked up that he almost put his bo staff through young Henry's neck. He darts at Henry.

Jesus (Tom Payne) suggested that Morgan use one end of his stick for the dead and one for the living, which Carol (Melissa McBride) thought was a cool suggestion. The prisoner Saviors come to the gate.

Rick tells the rest of the Saviors that they can put their hands down. The first group is leaving in 20. Morgan said that he was going to stay at the Heap, though.

Except when it's not, since Morgan himself doesn't want to be around people anymore. She and Morgan shared one of the finale's more touching scenes when the latter visits her in the heaps and tells her she's welcome to join Rick and the other communities. I guess this was supposed to convince us what a badass Savior Eugene now was since he pointed a gun in Gabriel's face and threatened to "crack your cranium".

Over at the Sanctuary, Dwight (Austin Amelio) was a prisoner in the place he used to help run and Eugene (Josh McDermitt) delivered his bullets to Negan. His treachery disabled the Saviors at a crucial moment and won him his friendship with Rosita back. He tests them out. He says he sent a decoy group of Saviors to the original spot that Dwight told Rick about. Finally, Negan asks that Gabriel ride along so he can confess his sins. He has some things to confess.

Alden and the captured Saviors head outside the Hilltop walls to clear the walkers for when the group will roll out to battle. Rick has repeatedly pledged to kill the leader of the Saviors, and Negan's last words to Michonne were that he planned to return the favor. Rick looked teary. Even Negan seemed to get misty. That is the real trap. And then there was a ridiculous distraction that had Gabriel jumping out of the auto as it swerved to avoid a walker and running through the woods, except his eyesight was so bad he was running into trees, so of course he got caught. He bumps into a tree. He didn't waste any time getting on the road and on the hunt for his lost wife Sherry, and his story came to a close on the hopeful note of him finding a message from her. Laura comes out of nowhere. Negan is behind him. They load him into the auto. As they walk to the next location, Jesus speaks with Morgan about the struggles he's been having. They realized their unfortunate situation when they heard eerie Saviors' whistling, a callback to an earlier trap that resulted in the bludgeoning murders of Abraham and pregnant Maggie's husband, Glenn. Negan's voice echoes as he taunts them. Negan tells them that today is possible thanks to Eugene.

Outside, everyone is preparing for the battle on the Saviors and Negan, based on Dwight's intel. They all shoot but their guns backfire. They fight for each other, against each other, and against a legion of the dead to somehow build an existence against the crushing pressure of lives coming apart. Suddenly and an explosion occurs in the area she plans to shoot.

Rick, of course, wasted his last bullets firing on Negan from a distance.
