The Walking Dead season 8 finale: 9 biggest WTF moments

The Season 8 finale answered a lot of questions we had about how things would wrap up, and how the future would be introduced. Except when Rick et al got to that spot expecting to ambush Negan they heard his familiar whistle seemingly coming from all sides. On the Sunday, April 15 episode, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) finally came face-to-face with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). He died paying respects to a woman he never knew.

Of course fans lost it over this. 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. They are let in. The gang headed out into battle, Rick and Michonne (Danai Gurira) hand-in-hand. Eugene brings him some bullets. The two engaged in some long overdue hand-to-hand combat, and just when Negan had Rick in his grip the script was flipped. By saving Negan, Rick has betrayed Maggie in the single worst way possible. On one of those decoys, Rick will find a map showing where Negan will be; however, it will be a trap, as Rick and his group will be surrounded by Saviors and won't survive the attack. Negan called dibs on the priest, and made it clear that this was his last day on Earth. Then the sound of Savior birdcalls filled the air. The Saviors lined up to open fire, and Every! As the Hilltop survivors prepared to do battle with the Saviors, they spotted a herd of walkers on the horizon that's bigger than any they've seen before. He's still a good guy! He met Rosita. And those people infected him with humanity. She still punches him, for puking on her when she tried to take him away from the Saviors. Things were not going to end well for Simon, and that was proven at the end of this past episode. Rick watched Negan bleed out under the tree for a moment before calling for medical help. "We have to make it right", Maggie says with tears in her eyes. He knew it, too. Was Rick in charge-in charge? He was trying to prove to Siddiq that he could trust him.

Letting Negan live caused Maggie (Lauren Cohan) to break down - craving vengeance for her husband - and her decision to plot against Rick was joined by, among others, Daryl (Norman Reedus), potentially placing the show's most significant players in conflict.

"This is a conclusion ... in some ways of issues and stories that have spanned eight seasons", showrunner Scott M. Gimple told USA TODAY, declining to even hint at who will die in the carnage that is sure to rain in the episode. This leaner approach allows the series to feel nimble and unpredictable where The Walking Dead can be bloated and lumbering-especially in recent seasons.

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 went off on his own. Even Carl had something to say about it.

To get testimony, a total of 226 witnesses were examined during the trial , and a total 411 documents were exhibited. Then after that, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) took the case in its hands from the CBI in 2011.

When it comes to Negan, I'm with Maggie: he should have died.

In the woods, Dwight is with Daryl. Dwight was sorry for what he did, but was willing to accept his punishment. Dwight drove to his and Sherry's house and found that she'd left a note for him that said "Honeymoon (infinity symbol)". Also, we learned that Jadis' real name is Ann ... so there is that. She tells Jesus that they will bide their time, then wait for their moment and show Rick and Michonne just how wrong they were. Uh oh. Maggie looked like Michael Corleone there.

"I can see men come up to me and size themselves up, like they are going to take a swing at me because I maybe hurt one of their favourite characters on television, which I always find slightly amusing". "You made me remember".

The episode was very final.
