Following the season 7 finale, ‘The Walking Dead’ showrunner Scott Gimple was quick to tease what’s in store for season 8, the season people are calling ‘All Out War’ from the comics – which he initially said would ‘melt peoples minds’.
Gimple said it isn’t looking good for Eugene after he declared himself ‘Negan’ in front of everyone:
“[Eugene] said he’s Negan in front of everybody, he has still not found the strength to get over his fear. He’s still Negan after seeing everything Sasha is doing. I don’t think it looks good for Eugene. But with everything Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) said to him, maybe his courage is just lying dormant.”
When asked of how this war is different from ones Rick had fought in before (Terminus, The Governor, etc) he said:
“It’s essentially for the whole world as far as their experience. It isn’t just their little corner. It’s the Kingdom and the Hilltop too.
“The Governor just wanted them dead. Negan would be happy if everyone was alive and well and working for him. There’s a very basic political idea at play here. They want to live in a fair world instead of having it just be Negan’s. To that end, that idea feels to me like the beginning of civilization is at stake, this new civilization they want to build rather than live this strange half-life serving a despot.”
He also teased of how Sasha’s death will set the tone for season 8
“As things were coming into place we saw that Sasha would do anything to make sure Maggie (Lauren Cohan) is safe and Sasha wanted to make sure she took care of this to make sure Maggie wouldn’t have to do it.
“Sasha’s sacrifice is the momentum with which the characters go into season eight. It’s tragic but much less traumatic than the first episode because this was a character going out on her own terms.”
