AceShowbiz - It's just hours before "The Walking Dead" long-awaited season 8 arrives on AMC. Coming through the hit zombie apocalypse series' official Twitter account, a sneak peek at the upcoming season 8 premiere has found its way out online.
The clip opens with a close-up shot of Rick Grimes. He is later seen standing under the scorching sun in front of two tombs. Later, we are given a glimpse of people preparing for battle.
Meanwhile, Dwight gets terrified as someone shoots an arrow, which comes together with a piece of paper note, at his wheel. "That bigger world is ours, by rights. We come together for it, all of us," Rick tells his group while standing on top of a truck. "It's ours by right!?"
Rick continues his speech, saying, "For those who use and take and kill to carve out the world to make it theirs alone, we end them!" He concludes his emotional speech by declaring his vow to kill presumably Negan. "There is only one person who has to die. And I will kill him myself. I will, I will!" he says.
The clip also features cane and flowers in a dreamy sequence. Fans assume that it's from the flash forward of Old Man Rick. Judging by the hints throughout the teasers, it's almost certain that Rick will survive the "All Out War" and make it out alive. However, whether he stays intact after the war remains to be seen. Meanwhile, other characters' fate is unclear, so far.
The upcoming eighth season of the AMC series is said to be more intense than the previous seasons. "It's a f**king in-your-face-action-packed IV of adrenaline," said Austin Amelio to Entertainment Weekly. "Season 7 was the ramp-up and now this is the blastoff. The stuff that's happening is insane!"
A crossover event between "The Walking Dead" and its prequel series "Fear the Walking Dead" is also scheduled to arrive next year. "Are we going to see an interesting backstory of the 'Walking Dead' character showing up in 'Fear the Walking Dead?' Or are we going to see a 'Fear the Walking Dead' character show up in 'The Walking Dead', and see a future version of a character? What could happen? Is it going to be something completely different than that?" comic book creator Robert Kirkman previously teased.
"The Walking Dead" returns for season 8 on October 22 on AMC.
