We think it's fair to say that The Walking Dead Season 8 has been polarizing for long-time fans of the series.
With the death of Chandler Riggs' Carl in the can, The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 13 was all about advancing the plot, and it left us with a startling revelation: Another character is about to die.
When the twist-filled episode got underway, the Hilltop was gearing up for the next round of their war against the Saviors. The villains were on their way to the Hilltop, so it was time to prepare for a fight.
We were introduced to Dr. Dana who admitted that Siddiq was all talk and of very little use to them as a medic. If you watch The Walking Dead online, you will know that Carl's dying wish was for Siddiq to find his place in the group.
But Siddiq used this to his advantage, and Dr. Dana changed her views on him. Why the swift 180? Did she want him to stop being so passive, and stick up for himself?
Maggie and Simon had it out over the walkie-talkie, and the former made it clear that she was not opposed to offing the hostages she had. This did nothing to faze Simon.
He was more concerned about the people who were not tainted by the Hilltop, and that it was time to bring this war to a grinding halt.
Dwight tried to reason with Simon because he knew there was a possibility that Negan survived the big fight with Rick. Simon continued with the stance that it was time to fight.
Daryl showed up in a blaze of glory and sent bullets towards the villains. But things took a turn, and Tara ended up being hit by an arrow. This was moments after Dwight refused to kill her.
Maggie cut the lights, and it seemed like the Hilltoppers made their getaway, but they didn't. It was all a ruse to get the Saviors into the open and to shoot them down.
Simon and his team left the compound, but not before Rick greeted them with some bullets. Rick's back, and ready to fight his way to the top!
The victory became a defeat when Tobin, Dr. Dana, and some others passed away. The Saviors had infected all of their weapons, and it meant that whoever got hit was going to turn into a walker.
As the characters battled the wave of walkers, it became apparent that Tara was about to die. Daryl swore that he was going to take down Dwight, while Tara realized she would soon be dead.
How will the series cope with the loss of another series regular?
