The Walking Dead 8x11, "Dead Or Alive Or", brought along a few big developments: Father Gabriel and Carson escaped the Sanctuary, with Gabriel leading the way through blind faith, while Savior insider Dwight ultimately proved his loyalty to the Alexandrians.
Elsewhere, Eugene found himself promoted, and Negan laid out a dangerous plan for the future: the Saviors will begin using gore warfare as they'll now be utilizing tainted weapons, setting an even more ominous tone for the war as it continues to unfold.
Father Gabriel is suffering from a severe infection, and is at risk of permanently losing his eyesight.
"Dead Or Alive Or" tested the priest's faith as a series of seeming miracles continued to unfold, leading escaped Savior prisoners Gabriel and Dr. Carson towards safety — until the duo found themselves once again captured by the Saviors, who killed Carson and returned Gabriel back to the Sanctuary.
Now serving as a worker under newly appointed outpost leader Eugene, who is tasked with making bullets, a sickly Gabriel is at even more risk of dying from his undefined illness.
Tara is quickly becoming insufferable! Dwight risked a lot to help them yet she can’t just let it go! Girl, turn it down a notch because there are enough other ass hats running around! #twd #thewalkingdead pic.twitter.com/ynQkssTlFZ— Beth Hannel (@bethhannel) March 12, 2018
Tara v Dwight: Dawn of Justice for Denise
Tara is lusting for revenge against Savior-turned-mole Dwight, who struck and killed Denise with Daryl's crossbow back in Season Six.
Tara should understand letting Dwight stick around. Even though she wanted no more to do with it & bailed, she was welcomed after she left the Governor's crew. #TheWalkingDead— Jennifer Lodge ⚜️ (@jlodge28) March 12, 2018
Remember when tara tried to kill the survivors when she was with the governor but realized she was on the wrong side? Now she wants to kill dwight for doing the same shit,.i hate her. #twd #thewalkingdead— RICKY DICKY DO DOG (@Trentja15887140) March 12, 2018
Speaking of Characters We're Over...
Eugene, the mullet-sporting former Alexandrian turned Savior general, found himself in hot water with Negan following the escape of Gabriel and Dr. Carson from the Sanctuary.
"Do you care?" Negan asks when Eugene inquires about the going-ons at a freshly bombed Alexandria.
His loyalty tested, Eugene is now tasked with a new position and his very own outpost, where he'll make enough bullets for the Saviors to wipe out Rick and his "merry band of pricks."
2) my man Eugene is a straight up Alcoholic! Talking about "will there be wine?" We okay Eugeneeee, my man trying to throw a Siesta at the new out post?... #TheWalkingDead #TWD #FanBite pic.twitter.com/uqvFyl6Lqg— Ben Dover (@WhatchamacallJO) March 12, 2018
Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
Henry — the young Kingdom wannabe warrior in search of vengeance over his murdered older brother, Ben, who was killed last season after taking a shot from rat-faced Savior Jared — is headed down a dark path.

ANOTHER kid that took a shine yo #Carol is crazy and has a bloodlust. He'll probably be dead soon. Who could have possibly seen this happening? #TheWalkingDead pic.twitter.com/OGeEw6AfJE
I love that the Saviors are creeped out by the little brother. That kid is a sociopath in the making. #TheWalkingDead— Summer Breeze ? (@IamBatMILF) March 12, 2018
So a Doctor and a Blind Priest Walk Into a Trap
A near-blind Gabriel was at his most confident while navigating his way through miracles, having even miraculously executed a walker that had nearly killed Dr. Carson — only for Gabriel to have his faith shaken when the pair were recaptured by the Saviors and Carson was accidentally killed.prevnext
The Hilltop — namely Enid, Maggie, and Carol — learned of Carl's death, news that brought a distraught Enid to her knees.
Poor Enid... #TheWalkingDead— Jolene Stegner (@JStegner82) March 12, 2018

I feel like Carl just died all over again. #TheWalkingDead— Maribel Crespo (@cubancontessa) March 12, 2018
Carl was someone Enid loved. She lost everyone and she was finally happy with someone, and she lost him too. #TheWalkingDead— emz (@buchanangrimes) March 12, 2018
