The Walking Dead has killed off several big characters in the past, so it was no surprise when the show went there once again on The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 3

If you watch The Walking Dead online, you will know that Aaron essentially forced Elliot into joining the fight against Negan. Aaron was not the type of person to sit around, so he joined Rick and the others.

Unfortunately, Elliot became a casualty in the war. We already knew he had been shot at the close of The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 2, but there was no resolution. 

Aaron got him to safety by a tree and thanked the lord that there was an exit wound, but Elliot did not want Aaron to let the others down. He sent his boyfriend back to complete the fight. 

It was heartbreaking, but it proved that Elliot believed in Aaron. They may have had their differences, but deep down, they were on the same wavelength and that it made it all the more heartbreaking when Aaron returned after the outpost was taken.

Elliot was nowhere to be found and was subsequently found as a zombie walking to join the large pack of walkers making their way into the woods. 

He broke down, and another team member showed up to reveal that Elliot was gone, and it was time to win the war, but Aaron was broken. 

Elsewhere, Rick continued to reason with Morales, but the man was not having it. He continued to call in reinforcements, but Daryl showed up and shot him before it was too late.

But Rick and Daryl then had to go to war with all of the saviors who had just shown up to take Rick to Negan. Surprisingly, both men emerged unscathed, but they did not find the guns. 

All they had to show from the gunfight was baby Gracie, and Aaron decided to take her under his wing to help come to terms with what happened in the fight. 

Rick and Daryl were ambushed by a savior, but he eventually surrendered and let them know that the weapons had been moved and that he could help find them.

Daryl took him out of the equation by way of bullets, and Rick could only look on in horror. 

Then there was Morgan who went to war with Jesus after some of the saviors escaped. It was a horrible scene that solidified the fact that there’s something seriously wrong with Morgan. 

Everyone just looked on as the two men fought it out, but Morgan ultimately decided to walk because he realized how silly he was being. 

When the prisoners arrived at Hilltop, Maggie was struggling to make a case to keep them, and Gregory felt the same way. Tara threw in her two cents, and it left Maggie with a big decision.

Finally, Carol and Ezekiel’s crew emerged unscathed and got ready to check the outpost for the guns, but then a savior sniper started picking them off. 

Who else died? We’ll need to wait to find out!
