Yes, it did. Warning: MAJOR "The Walking Dead" spoilers ahead!
Quiz: Would You Survive on Fear the Walking Dead? . Single! Gun! Malfunctioned! Eugene double-crossed the Saviors and made defective bullets that jammed the guns!
Morgan gave his Kingdom armor to Carol to give to Henry, saying to tell him he'd be alright.
The episode featured the final battle of the two-season "All-Out War" storyline that introduced Negan and his Saviors as a huge threat to Rick and his survivors.
Rick flashed back to walking with Carl, and then came to and saw all his people watching him.
By episode's end, Morgan had left Hilltop for the Scavengers' dump, where he convinced Jadis, a.k.a. Ann, to join Rick's group, telling her, "Everything is about people, everything in this life that's worth a damn".
Or, we could be looking at a soft reboot where Rick - and Negan - take Carl's goodbye letters to heart and attempt to form a new community together; as impossible as that may seem. Maggie let Alden (Callan McAuliffe), a redeemed former Savior, remain at the Hilltop, and Daryl (Norman Reedus) banished but spared Dwight (Austin Amelio), who had treated him so poorly at the Sanctuary.
In the woods, Dwight is with Daryl. He didn't waste any time getting on the road and on the hunt for his lost wife Sherry, and his story came to a close on the hopeful note of him finding a message from her. They load him into the vehicle.
But Hilltop leader Maggie could not accept that, screaming and crying that the Savior leader had to die - "It's not over till he's dead!" - even as Michonne held her back.
After cruelly slashing the throat of a Savior who was trying to surrender, Morgan took some advice from Jesus and started merely knocking out his foes instead of killing them. However, Rick was wrong in his decision not to kill Negan. When Jesus asks what she's going to do, she says that they will build the Hilltop back up and make it work better than before.
In a makeshift hospital room, Rick told a recovering Negan he would "rot in a cell", echoing the comic books.
"But Rick and Michonne?"
Later, it was revealed that Rick's plan for Negan includes locking him away and letting him live out the rest of his life in prison. He says that he remembers the past and them walking along a path when Carl was a child.
I am pleased with the ending of season 8. Now there's hope for a future, just as Carl pleaded Rick for. Viewing of "The Walking Dead" has already fallen off pretty dramatically, a byproduct of age, the overall gravity of a saturated TV marketplace and yes, missteps that the program has made along the way.
The Walking Dead Season 8 finale just aired, and it was complicated to say the least.
The Walking Dead concluded its eighth season tonight and Fear the Walking Dead returned for its fourth season; the sister series will continue to air Sunday nights on AMC. Between laughter and the occasional typical TWD tears that fans usually cry, the Season 8 finale turned #SurvivorSunday into #WTFSunday in less than 75 minutes. "So we're gonna bide our time, wait for our moment, and then we're gonna show him". He managed to turn Denise's murderer into a conflicted human who represented a crucial plight in the new world: how do you maintain your humanity when your survival requires you to abandon it?
