Can You guess what episode from Season 8 was voted the best?

Rick’s Got A Crazy New Weapon In These Walking Dead Season 9 Set Pics

Season 9 of AMC’s The Walking Dead is beginning to take shape. And fast.

Ever since production kicked off late last month, both Andrew Lincoln and Black Panther‘s Danai Gurira have been spotted on the streets of Atlanta (where it’s shooting) multiple times over, with numerous set pics hitting the web over the past couple of weeks. But today’s batch of photos are perhaps the most interesting ones we’ve had yet, as they show Lincoln’s fearless survivor, Rick Grimes, with a crazy new weapon. One which actually kind of resembles Negan’s Lucille.

As you’ll see in the gallery down below, he’s got some sort of club with him, which has pointed spikes on its end. How he got his hands on it or what exactly it’ll be used for remains to be seen, of course, but you can bet that this

Alliances were tested, emotions were high, and viewers were treated to one hell of a boss battle. Read the recap below to discover the shocking way the war was ended, and how a new confrontation might be brewing.

Preparing for Battle – As Hilltop gears up for war, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) mutters “I remember” to himself. He sees a flashback of holding a young Carl’s hand as father and son walk down a country road. Back in the present, Rick tucks in Judith and examines himself in the mirror. He seems to be asking himself if he’s lived up to his son’s memory. Siddiq (Avi Nash) walks in on him, and Rick implores the new recruit to give the full story about how his son died.

‘The Walking Dead’: Who do You think Negan found by the roadside? [Poll]
The Walking Dead” ended Sunday’s episode “Still Gotta Mean Something” with a cruel cliffhanger. Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is on his way back to The Sanctuary to let his men know that he isn’t dead when something in the road makes him put on the brakes. He spots a familiar face and opens his door to give the figure a lift.

The camera doesn’t allow the viewer any glimpse of the strange subject. But given that Negan later tells the guard at The Sanctuary that he has some big surprises to roll out, it’s safe to assume that whoever hops in the passenger seat spills some major tea or proves an asset to his war effort. Based on the evidence, there’s only a few characters who could fill this mysterious role. Read through the most likely candidates below and let us know who you think

‘The Walking Dead’ episode 14 recap: Survivors of the war try to heal in ‘Still Gotta Mean Something’
After an action packed episode last week, “The Walking Dead” Season 8 turned inward and quieter in Episode 14. The survivors of this “All Out War” struggle to cope with their losses and find peace with their emotions. Even so, “Still Gotta Mean Something” found time to include a zombie herd, a major moment with the mysterious helicopter, and a cryptic cliffhanger.

Sole Survivor – In a flashback to the junkyard massacre, we discover how Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) survived. Saviors hunt her down through stacks of garbage, and she quickly moves a body of a fallen comrade, laying down in his pool of blood and playing dead. She listens to the screams of her people as she lays motionless, waiting for the horror to be over. We later see Jadis in a secret bedroom. The space is immaculate and minimalist, fresh off the pages of an Ikea catalogue. She packs a suitcase, grabs the baseball bat Lucille,

‘The Walking Dead’ death watch: 42% of fans think Simon is doomed, while 14% say Maggie [Poll Results]
We recently asked our readers which “The Walking Dead” character wouldn’t survive Season 8, and fans have responded loud and clear.

A whopping 42% of respondents believe that Steven Ogg’s Simon is about to meet his maker. A chief lieutenant to Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Simon has benefited from increased screen time and character development in Season 8. But the focus on his character foretells doom in the eyes of Gold Derby readers. Simon recently led a coup against Negan, leaving the leader for dead and wresting control of The Saviors for himself. Simon survived the lethal battle at Hilltop Colony, but if Negan finds him before the season ends, he may not be so lucky.

‘The Walking Dead’ death watch: Which character won’t survive Season 8? [Poll]
Season 8 of “The Walking Dead” has been full of bloodshed. Shiva was devoured alive, Eric bled out and joined the undead, The Scavengers were massacred in a hail of bullets, and Carl (Chandler Riggs) took his own life after suffering from a zombie bite. And with just three episodes left in the season, the worst may be yet to come.

In the most recent episode, “Do Not Send Us Astray,” Tobin (Jason Douglas) fell victim to a Savior’s infected blade. His reanimated corpse wreaked havoc and death inside The Hilltop. But if this series’ history of including major deaths in last two episodes holds true, the grim reaper is still lurking behind one series mainstay. Let us know which “The Walking Dead” character you think is least likely to survive Season 8 in our poll below.

‘The Walking Dead 8×13: Do Not Send Us Astray’ Review

A world without Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) would be a world where the Saviours are out of control. In this week’s The Walking Dead we see just what this would be like, and the after effects of a battle with a secret silent new killer edge to it.

With Negan out of the picture, Simon (Steven Ogg) is in full control. Taking war to the Hilltop he battles to take out the survivors once and for all. The after effects of this battle are felt by everyone, especially those left at the Hilltop to contemplate the losses the Saviours have brought to them.

If there is one thing to take away from this episode it is that Morgan (Lennie James) is steadily falling off the deep end. Continually visited by the now dead Gavin (Jayson Warner Smith) he is reminded of the events that took place between them. Gavin

Hilltop Prepares – Hilltop enters battle mode as the troops take their positions. Survivors of The Kingdom have arrived, and Carol (Melissa McBride) is busy convincing Henry to stay out of harm’s way. Siddiq (Avi Nash) sets up shop in the infirmary but is interrogated by a female doctor who isn’t impressed with his lack of experience. I don’t know where this medical expert has been hiding all season, but Siddiq ultimately wins her over by standing his ground. Morgan (Lennie James) is in the woods on lookout duty.

‘The Walking Dead 8×11: Dead or Alive Or’ Review

The Walking Dead over the past few weeks has been dealing with how people deal with loss. This week though, it is back to life trying to survive. With reality of the situation starting to set in though, and vengeance still on some people’s minds, will Carl’s wishes ever come true?

This week Daryl (Norman Reedus) finds himself having to take a risky route to get to the Hilltop. This is further complicated by Tara’s (Alanna Masterson) need for revenge on Dwight (Austin Amello) who puts himself in danger to help the group get to safety. At the Hilltop, Maggie (Lauren Cohan) finds herself having to make tough choices to manage the growing number turning up at the gates.

Tara has become an annoying character, and this week I’ll admit I feared the worst. For most of the episode she did live up to my expectations

Lauren Cohan’s Walking Dead Negotiations Still Ongoing

Following hot on the heels of Carl Grimes’ recent exit, it looks like The Walking Dead may be forced to kill off another long-running character in the form of Maggie Rhee. The problem is that actress Lauren Cohan is currently engaged in a dispute over payment with AMC. The discussions are clearly not going well, either, as the actress has already signed up for a pilot over at ABC, which could see her leave the show.

From what we understand, the likes of Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira (Black Panther) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan have all put pen to paper – ditto for Melissa McBride, Alanna Masterson, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Seth Gilliam and Ross Marquand – but the standoff between Lauren Cohan and the Powers That Be over at AMC continues to fester.

At least, that’s according to creator Robert Kirkman, who was recently pressed for an update by Screen Junkies.

Lauren Cohan Is Reportedly The Only Walking Dead Star Yet To Sign On For Season 9

Will she, won’t she?

That’s the big question currently looming over Lauren Cohan’s future on The Walking Dead – or lack thereof – as The Hollywood Reporter brings word that all of the show’s major players have re-signed for the recently-announced ninth season…expect Cohan.

So while the likes of Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira (Black Panther) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan have all put pen to paper – ditto for Melissa McBride, Alanna Masterson, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Seth Gilliam and Ross Marquand – the standoff between Lauren Cohan and the Powers That Be over at AMC continues to fester.

Sources close to the situation indicate that Cohan was unhappy with the offer that AMC put on the table, and the fact that the actress is now committed to the ABC pilot Whiskey Cavalier has only raised more cause for concern.
