Skybound has released a video showcasing every death — about 224 of them — seen in the front half of The Walking Dead season 8.
The three-and-a-half minute NSFW recap runs through deaths big and small across the eight episodes, including the brutal death of King Ezekiel's beloved pet tiger, Shiva, and the surprising death of former ally turned enemy Morales, who returned early this season after disappearing back in the series' first season.
This half season also saw the loss of Aaron's boyfriend, Eric, and almost all of the Kingdom's military forces, who were massacred by the Saviors' .50 cal machine gun.
The montage features death by explosion, gun fire, crossbow bolt, knives, tiger, RPG, katana, machine gun, sword, axe, bō staff, and, of course, death by zombies.
Using a ratio supplied by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman in issue #10 of the comic book — the ratio of walkers to humans is 5,000 to one — SourceFedNERD's Matt Lieberman estimated 0.0002% of the world's population, or just 1.4 million people, were still alive when the outbreak went global.
In the 600+ days since the outbreak, even more people have died, dwindling those numbers even further: Lieberman estimated there were less than 400,000 survivors in the entire world.
Minus the additional 300 lives, give or take, lost between seasons 7 and 8.
Leading man Andrew Lincoln said the death of his son is Rick Grimes' "worst nightmare being realized."
“The back half [of the season] is him trying to live through the unbelievable pain, in the middle of a war, and trying to reconcile this loss with what he’s fighting for,” Lincoln told EW.
Director Greg Nicotero calls the mid-season premiere "one of our most powerful episodes that we’ve ever produced."
“When I watched the first cut of this episode," Nicotero said, "tears were coming out of my eyes 20 minutes into it."
The Walking Dead returns Sunday, February 25 on AMC.
