New Trailer For The Walking Dead Raises Some Real Questions
So the eighth season of AMC's The Walking Dead is almost upon us. The first episode is premiering late this October, which is pretty bloody exciting.
Bloody being the operative word after last season's absolute bloodbath.
They've released a trailer, which is all well and good, but it's the last 15 seconds that are messing with people's minds...

What does that mean? Has the whole series been one big dream? It looks like Rick has managed to live to an old age, but has he actually been out and about or has he just been getting old while in a coma?
Surely, the writers have more sense than to end it with: "And it was all a dream. The end." Imagine how p*ssed off the fans would be...
Anyway, they've released an accompanying statement with the teaser trailer, which reads: "Last season, Rick Grimes and his group of survivors were confronted with their deadliest challenge yet. With the comfort of Alexandria, they let their guard down, only to be reminded how brutal the world they live in can be.
"Feeling powerless under Negan's rules and demands, Rick advocated the group play along. But seeing that Negan couldn't be reasoned with, Rick began rallying together other communities affected by the Saviors. And with the support of the Hilltop and Kingdom, they finally have enough fire power to contest the Saviors."
It continues: "This season, Rick brings 'All Out War' to Negan and his forces. The Saviors are larger, better-equipped, and ruthless - but Rick and the unified communities are fighting for the promise of a brighter future. The battle lines are drawn as they launch into a kinetic, action-packed offensive.
"Up until now, survival has been the focus of Rick and our group, but it's not enough. They have to fight to take back their freedom so that they can live. So that they can rebuild. As with any battle, there will be losses. Casualties. But with Rick leading the Alexandrian forces, Maggie leading the Hilltop, and King Ezekiel leading the Kingdom - Negan and the Saviors' grip on this world may finally be coming to an end."
I guess we'll just have to watch it to find out what the craic is.
