The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 16 Recap: Wrath

Did the end of the war live up to the tremendous hype?

On The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 16, the fight against the Saviors reached a dramatic conclusion. 

When the episode got underway, Rick and the members of the AHK alliance were getting ready for the big battle at the Hilltop. 

Morgan struggled to get to grips with the fact that he was embroiled in another war, and worried that taking innocent people out was going to change him in a way he did not like. 

When Rick warned Morgan that it was best to stay behind and out of the fight, Morgan noted that each of them were horrible now and that was a result of the decisions they made. 

At the Sanctuary, Negan and his minions were preparing for the war, knowing they were going to have the upper hand because Dwight gave the Hilltoppers some fake news. 

Eugene was on hand with the bullets he custom built for the saviors. Negan and his team set off and even took Father Gabriel along for the ride. 

Negan admitted to Gabriel on the road that he was messing with Rick by putting some of his men in a place that Rick and the AHK alliance would find them. 

This would give Negan more time to laugh because it meant Rick would think the information Dwight gave them was the real deal. 

In true Rick fashion, he figured that it was all a ruse, and told his people it was time to change things up. 

Gabriel made a run for it, but Eugene appeared in the woods and held him captive until Negan showed up. While Negan wondered whether to kill Gabriel, he decided to keep him as a bargaining chip. 

Just when Negan thought he had the upper hand and his men were ready to fight the AHK alliance, their bullets blew up in their guns. 

Oh yes, Eugene was still working with his original alliance, and it was a plan months in the making. Negan tried to make a break for freedom. 

At the Hilltop, another round of Saviors tried to take over, but the Oceanside women were talked around to helping the AHK alliance. 

They chucked bombs at the Saviors and allowed Hilltop to remain under the spell of the good guys. 

Rick and Negan fought it out, and Rick eventually cut Negan’s throat. But that did not mean he was going to die, and Rick ordered Siddiq to save the villain’s life. 

Rick said that he was ready to put the past behind him and that everyone will stop the fighting. Maggie and Daryl were less than enthused by this, and seem poised to go after Rick. 

Finally, Negan woke up and Rick and Michonne admitted they were keeping him alive so that everyone knew they were building a civilization. 

It looks like Carl’s letter had a lasting effect on Rick, and that’s why the father wrote a letter of his own back to his son. 

Yes, it seems like The Walking Dead Season 9 is going to be very different.

The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 15 Recap: Worth

The end of the war is fast approaching. 

That much became abundantly clear on The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 15 as the final pieces were put in motion before the final battle kicked off. 

When the emotional episode kicked off, Rick had finally worked up the courage to read the letter from Carl. 

The kid wrote a lot about what life was like before the apocalypse, and how he would love if Rick and Negan put their feud aside. 

While Rick was against it, Carl’s letter reiterated that nobody had to forget what Negan did. All they had to do was stop the fighting. 

When the action moved to the Sanctuary, Dwight and Simon were shocked to the core by the return of Negan. 

Negan had a meeting with them and revealed he knew the truth about Simon’s act of betrayal by giving the kill order against the Heapsters. 

Just went it seemed like Simon’s brains were about to become Lucille’s next meal, Negan said that all was forgiven. 

Would Negan really let someone off the hook? It certainly seemed that way, but Simon continued to act out and coerced Dwight into joining in on his fight against Negan. 

Negan rounded his group up, and told them about his elaborate plan to take over the Hilltop and take out everyone who was against them. 

This gave Dwight his biggest lead yet to help Rick and Daryl know what was going on. Dwight sent Gregory off on a mission with a map to let them know the truth. 

Just when it seemed like Simon and Dwight’s plan was going to be the one to save everyone, Negan appeared during a meeting with the pair, and we found out that Dwight had already told Negan about Simon’s plan. 

Negan then decided enough was enough and challenged Simon to fight him to the death. In true Negan fashion, the villain brutally killed Simon. 

But the insanity was only just beginning. Dwight made his way back to the room after Negan was singing his praises. 

There was a gift waiting for him: Laura. She was the one who knew all about Negan’s plan to leave the Saviors behind and work with another group. 

Laura was the person Negan picked up on the road during The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 14. and told Negan everything. 

Negan decided to let Dwight live, but what does he want in return? We’ll find out soon enough!

Finally, Michonne called Negan and told him about Carl’s letter pleading for peace. Negan said that he was not ready to put the past behind him and that the final battle was looming. 

Yes, it sure sounds like a big battle is going to be occurring on The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 16, and it’s about time.
