What will happen in The Walking Dead season 8, episode 16?
The official synopsis from AMC is: “The communities join forces in the last stand against the Saviors as All Out War unfolds.”
While not many details are included in the description, fans can be certain that the final battle that has been brewing all season will play out in the episode.
Showrunner Scott M. Gimple said that the episode will be the conclusion of many season’s worth of storylines.
“This episode isn’t just like these 15 episodes coming to a conclusion, but Angela [Kang, showrunner] and myself and the writers had always talked about this in many ways being sort of the conclusion of the first eight seasons,” he told Entertainment Weekly.
Scott added that filming the finale and this season in general has been “intense” for everyone involved.
“I was there, and it was an intense vibe. It was a very hard season.
“And kind of everybody is in this episode. It was just intense. People were pretty to the limit this year emotionally.”
The Alexandrians are then seen running in formation against an unseen enemy.
There’s Walkers, explosions and a shot of Michonne (Danai Gurira) wielding her signature sword while Rick brandishes an automatic rifle and Morgan impales someone with his spear.
So it looks like a bloody and violent battle will be fought.
