walking dead episode 8 tara rosita

This Sunday night marks the mid-season finale of what’s been an insanely intense eighth season of AMC‘s The Walking Dead, and they’re going into the holiday break with 88 minutes of guns blazin’ action. Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and the Saviors are on the run after Daryl (Norman Reedus), Morgan (Lennie James) and Tara (Alanna Masterson) blew a hole in the front of The Sanctuary. But while it may seem like the war is at an end, with the Saviors cornered and on the run there’s no where that’s safe in Alexandria, the Kingdom or the Hilltop.

In a rare moment of humor in a season that’s been justifiably lacking in it (and an exclusive video from Entertainment Weekly), Tara updates Rosita (Christian Serratos) on the situation with the Saviors from an interestingly “optimistic” perspective. Tara thinks she should use their new cache of grenades to redirect the walkers, and Rosita is more than happy to hand them over – hand all of them over:

Here is AMC’s official synopsis for The Walking Dead Season 8:

“Last year, Rick Grimes and his group of survivors were confronted with their deadliest challenge yet. With the comfort of Alexandria, they let their guard down, only to be reminded how brutal the world they live in can be. The introduction of Negan and the Saviors broke our group.

Feeling powerless under Negan’s rules and demands, Rick advocated the group play along. But seeing that Negan couldn’t be reasoned with, Rick began rallying together other communities affected by the Saviors. And with the support of the Hilltop and Kingdom, they finally have enough fire power to contest the Saviors.

This year, Rick brings ‘All Out War’ to Negan and his forces. The Saviors are larger, better-equipped, and ruthless — but Rick and the unified communities are fighting for the promise of a brighter future. The battle lines are drawn as they launch into a kinetic, action-packed offensive.

Up until now, survival has been the focus of Rick and our group, but it’s not enough. They have to fight to take back their freedom so that they can live. So that they can rebuild. As with any battle, there will be losses. Casualties. But with Rick leading the Alexandrian forces, Maggie leading the Hilltop, and King Ezekiel leading the Kingdom — Negan and the Saviors’ grip on this world may finally be coming to an end.”
