Why You Should Watch: During the course of Season 7, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) eventually abandoned his attempts to negotiate with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) when it became glaringly obvious this latest nemesis was a raging megalomaniac who was beyond reason. As Season 8 opens, Rick has begun rallying neighboring communities for a high-stakes uprising against Negan and his Saviors, assisted by Maggie and King Ezekiel (Lauren Cohan, Khary Payton). Before this deadly face-off is resolved, though, Rick’s gallant crew will see some painful losses.
