Welcome to another edition of The Walking Lulz, where we collect all the best The Walking Dead memes from each episode of the show into one place for your viewing pleasure. And according to you guys, the most compelling battle in this season so far was the all out war we just witnessed between Rick and Daryl.

The Walking Dead’s Carl is in danger in a tense new trailer for season 8, episode 6

Carl Grimes looks to be in a bit of a pickle in the trailer for next week’s Walking Dead episode. The fate of Chandler Riggs’ character for this season has been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks – even the actor himself addressed the rumours that he could die on social media – and it doesn’t help that in this promo, we catch a glimpse of Carl struggling against a couple of walkers. Although if Carl does indeed meet his demise right here, we’ll probably riot. Elsewhere, it seems a large part of the next episode ‘The King, Read more »

The Walking Dead star responds to that potential Eugene twist

The Walking Dead star Josh McDermitt has responded to that potential Eugene twist in the latest episode. Despite him seeming fully Team Negan since season seven’s ‘Hostiles and Calamities’, ‘The Big Scary U’ hinted that Eugene might actually be secretly working against Negan, possibly alongside Dwight (Austin Amelio) without even knowing it. A bag of guns stolen from the Saviours’ armoury was marked by something red, either a spot of blood from Eugene’s blister on his thumb or red paint from Dwight’s chess piece. While he didn’t exactly clear up the situation, McDermitt had his say on the tense scene Read more »

‘The Walking Dead’ Doesn’t Have To Be This Bad — 7 Ways It Can Improve

‘The Walking Dead’ Doesn’t Have To Be This Bad — 7 Ways It Can Improve

The Walking Dead is five episodes into what may be the worst season yet of the show, though Season 7 is right up there. That hasn’t stopped fans and many critics from singing its praises, but ratings continue to slide and I continue to watch as one of the most promising shows on television spirals ever further into a tangled, ungainly morass of its own making. I used to really love The Walking Dead, warts and all. It was always one of those shows with annoying ticks, but it had such great characters in such a gritty, tense post-apocalyptic world Read more »

6 questions I have after watching The Walking Dead season 8 episode 5, The Big Scary U

6 questions I have after watching The Walking Dead season 8 episode 5, The Big Scary U

Revelations! Callbacks! Helicopters! The Walking Dead season 8’s episode 5, The Big Scary U, was full of surprises and fan servicing setups, making it one of the stronger outings in an otherwise disjointed season so far. It wasn’t without its hiccups, and some of the events played out in cringe-worthy fashion at times, but I enjoyed many of the episode’s isolated moments, even if the sum of its (many) parts still leaves me wanting. And I’m not just wanting, either, but asking too, as the episode poses yet more questions for the show as it gears towards its mid-season break. Read more »

The Walking Dead Villain Watch season 8, episode 5: The Big Scary U

The Walking Dead Villain Watch season 8, episode 5: The Big Scary U

The Walking Dead is back, and for us here at The Verge that’s an opportunity to examine just how effective the show can be in creating a complex villain. As played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, big bad Negan has always been violent. But thanks to his man-baby antics, he’s stubbornly remained a comic book thug, never becoming the nuanced character the show so sorely needs. Each week, I’ll be analyzing the show through its presentation of Negan: how he acts, how he delivers his jokes and threats, and most importantly, how his character develops in contrast to our supposedly-virtuous heroes.

‘Walking Dead’ Might Have Fixed One Hell Of A Plot Hole

‘Walking Dead’ Might Have Fixed One Hell Of A Plot Hole

Buckle up, peeps, because a lot happened on Sunday night’s “Walking Dead” episode, “The Big Scary U.” We learned some crucial aspects of Negan’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) backstory, as it was revealed that his one big regret was not being able to kill his wife when she turned into a zombie. Then Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) went all fisticuffs after the latter wanted to use the explosives they found to blow a hole in the Savior headquarters. (The explosives end up going off, so that debate settled pretty quickly.) Finally, Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) and Negan had Read more »

‘Walking Dead’: Rick Faces Heaps of Trouble in New Season 8 Preview

Alexandria’s best hope takes on the trash in a new look at what’s ahead in ‘The Walking Dead.’ A wise man once said, “The negotiations were short.” This man was clearly not speaking about the ongoing conversation between Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) of Alexandria and Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) of the Garbage People. Rick faces off again with a phantom menace of sorts in the next episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, called “The King, the Widow and Rick,” as seen in the trailer for the coming outing. At the end of this past week’s episode, Rick was walking off on Read more »

The Scavengers Are Coming Back On ’The Walking Dead’ Season 8 Episode 6, & Why

It’s hard to believe that we’re already five episodes into The Walking Dead’s Season 8. But man, have those five episodes ever delivered on the season’s promise of “all out war.” And now, it looks like there’s another side getting sucked into the war, as the promo for next week’s episode, “The King, the Widow, and Rick,” shows Rick meeting with the Scavengers to propose a deal — again. While the end of this week’s episode, “The Big Scary U,” showed Rick approaching an unknown compound, walking alone with only one gun, the promo for the next episode seems to Read more »
