Last night’s episode of The Walking Dead, Some Guy, was the most violent and emotionally devastating of the season so far; we even saw the demise of a fan favorite side-character. Hopefully, this is the darkness before the dawn, because things are likely to get even more intense in the coming weeks. This Sunday’s episode, The Big Scary U, will be a return to The Sanctuary. Peep the trailer and synopsis below.
Official Synopsis: The Walking Dead Episode 8.05 – “The Big Scary U”: “With war raging all around him, we get a close look at Negan and the lives of the Saviors during the conflict through a familiar set of eyes.”

Season 8 synopsis: “Last season, 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.
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 season, 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.”
