There will be some big changes in the last half of the current season of ‘The Walking Dead’ and now it sounds like some “closure” will be included as well. We’re not talking about Carl Grimes dying either. First, there will be a huge increase in action for the second half of season 8. Secondly, from Rick’s plans falling apart to Carl being bitten, to the various factions and ruined communities, there is a lot going on right now. Negan is on the loose and Norman Reedus says all of this is coming to a head.
It also matches up with the actor previously stating that Daryl’s story “wraps up in a very poetic way” which could be a hint that his time killing Walkers might be coming to an end.
According to Reedus:
“It’s all resolution. It’s all the tying up of these ends of what’s laid out in front of us in all these different directions. There’s a lot of closure coming in the back eight, which is great. There’s been all this action and all the fighting and all these different factions that have been splitting off in these different directions, and it all kind of comes together in the end with closure in several different avenues. Some wrap up the way you think. Some wrap up not the way you think. It’s all kind of a surprise where it all comes from.”
We were previously told that this “All Out War” would come to a close during the events of Season 8 so we won’t have to wait too much longer to see how this resolves. For fans of the comic, the statement that “some wrap up not the way you think. It’s all kind of a surprise where it all comes from” sounds as if they’ll be taking further liberties with the source material.
I can’t imagine it has anything to do with that helicopter we saw recently.
