Warning! Spoilers for The Walking Dead’s eighth season lie below!
AMC is set to bring back The Walking Dead this October, and season eight will leave its midseason finale on one fiery note. Fans got their first-look at the series’ comeback at San Diego Comic Con with a season trailer, but one fan-site captured footage of The Walking Dead’s recent set antics.
As you'll see, the AMC series will bring out explosives next season which would make even Michael Bay jealous.
The Spoiling Dead took to Facebook to share its recent findings about The Walking Dead. “The midseason finale already sounds like it’s going to be fire!” the page wrote.
Since The Walking Dead is filming in Atlanta, the fan-site staked out the show’s set in Georgia. The page has stressed their observations aren't all confirmed, but The Spoiling Dead shared what juicy tidbits it could about season eight's midseason finale. You can check out the details below!
The Walking Dead's sibling series Fear the Walking Dead returns September 10. The Walking Dead will return for its eighth season on October 22, 2017. The Season 8 premiere will mark 100 episodes overall for the popular AMC series. For complete coverage and insider info all season long, follow @BrandonDavisBD on Twitter.
Alexandria In Flames
The biggest anecdote to come from The Spoiling Dead has to do with Alexandria. The safe-zone is one of The Walking Dead’s three major communities, and Rick Grimes convinced its citizens to go to war against Negan and the Saviors. However, it looks like the community is not going to fare well under Rick’s care.
As you can see in the video below, Alexandria will go up in flames during the show’s midseason finale. “This was the night of many BOOMS! Alexandria is getting beat up,” The Spoiling Dead wrote. “There were multiple loud, fiery explosions. They took place by the solar panels, church, and Brownstones.”
There’s no telling how The Walking Dead will introduce the attack on Alexandria, but fans do have their suspicions. Previous rumors have suggested The Sanctuary will come under fire by the Militia, so the Saviors may turn their eye to Alexandria to get revenge.
Carl v Negan
If Alexandria’s fiery demise was not enough to hype fans for the season finale, The Spoiling Dead saw how the episode will treat Negan and Carl. The site’s set description can be read below:
“Carl is on the platform. Negan shows up at the gates with his Savior army. Negan starts yelling loudly. Carl gets down from the platform and at some point when he is by the gates there is gunfire.”
Continuing, the site says Negan and Carl confront each other later with Michonne and Tobin close behind. A line of dialogue was heard presumably between the two characters as Negan tells Carl, “Your daddy isn’t here.”
The soft threat is a chilling one, and it does not bode well for Alexandria. The safe-zone does rest under the care of Rick, so his absence is concerning. The lead may simply be out on another mission when Negan drops by, but he’s hopefully just hiding somewhere to scope the situation out.
