We were promised an all-out war, and war is at least partially what we got. The Walking Dead’s season 8 premiere went to battle in audacious fashion, with Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) facing off. In the process, the show corrects the course of the last year, even just a little, and offering some intrigue for the future, too.
what are we to make of all this? Is it a flash-forward? A dream sequence? An optimistic fantasy? An alternate reality in the Walking Dead multiverse? A weird soft-focus flight of fancy, like that weird Glenn-and-Abraham dinner party from last season? Lincoln and the showrunners have promised answers soon; for now we’ll have to accept it as Rick’s promise of tomorrow, a hint of what post-Negan life could look like.
