Best “walking cities” to travel to in the world

ADVERTISEMENT


Sometimes the only way to really get to know the city you are visiting is to take it all in at your own pace. That means strolling around the streets, getting a feel for the people and atmosphere of the place. While some cities are not ideal to walk around because of their hills (hello, San Francisco), others can be enjoyed under the power of your own two feet. We’ve done the hard part and trekked across many of the world’s cities to give you our definitive recommendations on which of them to wander around.

New York, USA

Let’s start with a biggie, New York City. Taking a taxi or a bus around this city just won’t do it the justice it deserves. Walking around the streets of Manhattan really lets you see all that is going on. You can grab a pizza on the corner of a street, or head into one of the many bars, restaurants, or cafes to give yourself a quick rest before you march on through the city. Of course, you will have to get out and walk through Central Park, so why not extend your walk? No trip to New York would be complete without walking around several of the huge department stores the city has to offer.

London, UK

London is a huge metropolis, but unlike many cities, its streets are narrow and intertwining. This means that if you take a bus or taxi tour, you are going to miss things because they can’t fit down all of the streets. Down some of these little side streets are many little pubs and historic buildings. You’ll want to get a closer look at some of the ancient architecture that you just don’t get to see from the window of a moving vehicle. We recommend getting up at daybreak to really take in the city at your own pace before the working residents start bulldozing their way around the sidewalks and walkways.

Paris, France

Paris, the city of love. What better place to go for a romantic stroll than the French capital city? Take your partner and go for a long walk along the river Seine before ending up frolicking through the Tuileries gardens. The gardens are located beside the Louvre art gallery so make sure you stop by after you’ve experienced the beauty of the gardens. Walk through the streets and enjoy the smell of bread and coffee as you walk past some of the finest cafes Paris has to offer.

Prague, Czech Republic

Prague is a historic city; its streets are a reminder of how we used to live hundreds of years ago. The cobbled stones and narrow alleys can be found all over the city, helping to transport you back to the medieval times. Prague doesn’t get too hot, even during the summer so you can comfortably walk around the city without getting burnt or sweating buckets. With several concert halls and clubs, walk around this city will fill your ears with the sounds of the Czech culture.

These are some of the best cities to stroll around at your own pace. You can just drop yourself into the city and absorb the culture through the sights, smells, tastes, and people that surround you. To get a sense of the history of these places then take a guided walking tour to learn more when you visit. If you are looking to visit a city for your next vacation, then consider walking around one of these cultural hotspots.

Review: Ye Is an Uneasy Look at Kanye West’s Life as a Walking Contradiction

Kanye West’s projects since he teamed up with his now-wife Kim Kardashian West in 2012—the abrasive Yeezus, the sprawling The Life of Pablo, the series of personal appearances punctuated by top-of-the-head singles—have had varying stylistic contours. The one thing they’ve consistently focused on is contrast: Light and dark, ugly and beautiful, self-aggrandizing and self-loathing.

West is perhaps uniquely qualified to grapple with this. In the public mind of 2018 he is “Kanye,” shorthand for an outspoken black man who says a lot of outré things in a world still struggling mightily with its racial politics, who Barack Obama has called a “jackass,” and who’s married to a similarly polarizing figure. (Among other things.) He’s also Kanye West, rapper and producer born in Chicago, happy when he’s eating ice cream. The back-and-forth between “Kanye” and the public can be excruciating to watch unfold in real time, particularly when it deals with topics like mental illness and opioid edition, and even moreso when it touches even more volatile third rails like President Donald Trump. It’s perhaps most disheartening when it crosses onto platforms that take the wink-and-nod approach to any subject they tackle—your TMZs, your 24-hour news networks, your drive-by Tweeters looking for an excuse to blow off steam—and erase the humanity at the star’s nucleus.

But West didn’t reach his exalted position because he went on a reality show with no interest in making friends. He was an innovative producer who minted hits, both for himself—the Ray Charles callback “Gold Digger,” the dreamy “P.Y.T.” flip “Good Life”—and for others, like former confidante Jay-Z and pop megastars Rihanna and Paul McCartney. This year, in addition to his gossip-blog-poking appearances, he returned to music, “chopping samples from the sunken place” (as he said on Twitter—he apparently meant Jackson Hole, Wyoming) on albums for himself, as well as other artists in his G.O.O.D. Music stable.

Ye, West’s eighth solo album and the second in this pre-summer flurry, was launched at a splashy listening party in Jackson Hole on Thursday. West collected boldfaced names and influencers in order to hear the record around a campfire. It opens in the dark; the first track is unnervingly called “I Thought About Killing You,” and it opens with West in monologue, his voice stretching and shifting as he talks about murder and suicide over watercolor synths. “I think this is the part where I’m supposed to say something good to compensate it, so it doesn’t come off… bad,” he says, then chuckles mirthlessly before his voice is pitched to an even lower point, so as to emphasize the “really, really, really bad things” knocking around his brain. (Think American Psycho where the exalted business cards are flaunted on Instagram.) Those impulses recede, but linger over the rest of the record.

Sonically, Ye resembles Pablo but, perhaps appropriately given its terse title, more stripped-down, with the occasional pitch-shifted voice dropped in to add uneasiness. Ye doesn’t deviate too much from the lyrical concepts of Pablo—it blends the trivial and the life-or-death like on the darkened-club “Yikes,” where he declares his bipolar syndrome (which he calls out on the scrawled-on-iPhone-pic cover) to be his “superpower” and compares the U.S.-North Korea tensions to his long-simmering beef with Wiz Khalifa. “Wouldn’t Leave” is a love song that doubles as an apology to his wife; closing track “Violent Crimes,” which features a shoutout to and cameo by fellow stratosphere-dweller Nicki Minaj, draws from the “I respect women more now that I have daughters” well that’s simultaneously frustrating and a relief. But it wouldn’t be a Kanye album without fundamental contradictions to the very end.

The royal wedding is days away, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set to wed on Saturday at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

While the average wedding run up is stressful enough, Meghan Markle is having to deal with much more than most, with her father Thomas Markle caught in controversy this week as it was reported that he had colluded with photographers in a series of publicity stunts.

It was even reported that the father of the bride had pulled out of the wedding – four days before the nuptials – due to embarrassment over the scandal, with Kensington Palace issuing a statement asking for ‘understanding and respect’.

‘This is a deeply personal moment for Ms Markle in the days before her wedding,’ announced a palace spokesman. ‘She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this difficult situation.’

With Thomas seemingly set to be absent, speculation was surrounding who would be filling his shoes and walking Meghan down the aisle, with rumours that it could be her mother Doria Radlan or brother-in-law Prince William.

According to recent reports however, it looks like Thomas Markle might be attending after all, with Mr Markle reportedly telling TMZ that Meghan had changed his mind.

Given that his health improves – he is apparently suffering with a heart condition – he should be there on Saturday to walk his daughter down the aisle.

‘Fear the Walking Dead’: Morgan Helps Nick Find Peace

SPOILER ALERT: Warning, this article contains spoilers from the Season 4, Episode 3 of Fear the Walking Dead. Proceed at your own risk.

There are a lot of parallels between Nick and the Morgan from three or four seasons ago in The Walking Dead. Both spent a chunk of time being a solo savage on in the open, both took it so far they lost themselves, and both tried to right the ship by going into a self-prescribed exile — the season started with Morgan locking himself up in Jadis’ junkyard and Nick on a long stint of refusing to leave The Diamond.

“You try to do the right thing, and you end up doing the worst,” Nick tells his mother Madison in a flashback to when the Vultures still had The Diamond under siege. He went out hoping to help his mom find food, and when a mustachioed Vulture – and Charlie, who continues to stab the group in the back – arrive at their spot and take the supplies before them. Nick nearly kills the man.



Morgan notices early that they’re kindred spirits. After Al’s botched escape that dumps the SWAT truck into a ditch, everyone but Nick and Morgan head off on a mission find something to pull it out – a mission that only amounts to the two groups earning a bit of good will from each other – and the two left begin to bond. Nick offers Morgan half a protein bar after seeing the man’s sweet skills with a staff, and he secretly sees Al’s tape of Morgan’s story. The bonding comes to a screeching halt when the two see a blue Camino drive by – the same the mustachioed Vulture drove in the flashback – and Nick takes off after it.

The two end up in a small town, and take cover in a drugstore. Nick confronts Morgan about why he doesn’t kill – because almost every character has to at this point. He already knows the answer – “I lose people, and then I lose myself” – because he watched Al’s tape, but it doesn’t stop him from prying.

“You don’t kill, but I bet you did,” he tells Morgan. Morgan tries to talk him out of finding the man in the Camino, but Nick takes off to look over the town. He eventually finds the car, and the Vulture from the flashback. The man is surprised to see Nick, but Morgan – who stumbled across the man first, and was trying to get him to leave – stops him from killing the Vulture. The man heads off and Nick tells Morgan the only way to stop him is to kill him, so Morgan lets him go and Nick gets himself some sweet, bloody revenge.

“I know where you are Nick, because I was there,” Morgan tells a blood-soaked Nick after he kills the man. He brings up his time with Eastman, and lets Nick take his Art of Peace book. Morgan seems ready to pay-it-forward the way Eastman did for him.

Nick wanders off to read the book, and pulls a blue bonnet – picked from a field him and Madison found where she told him to try to find something good every time they leave The Diamond – from his pocket. He looks at peace, and seems ready to let Morgan help him. And that’s when Charlie shows up and shoots him in the chest.

Yep, the show’s new direction seems hell-bent on brushing a lot of aspects of what made FTWD interesting for three seasons – different time period, visually unique setting, it’s characters – under the rug as quickly as possible. Charlie shot Nick for killing the Vulture and runs off just as the others arrive with the SWAT truck. He dies choking on his own blood surrounded by his sister Alicia, Luci, and Strand.

The last scene cuts from his bloodied, dead body to one of him laying in a field of blue bonnets. Maybe Morgan helped him find peace after all.

Some unanswered questions:

– How long ago was the Vulture’s siege on The Diamond? The guy Nick kills seems genuinely shocked to see him.

– Where is Madison? Dead? Taken by the Vultures?

– Hopefully this week’s episode wasn’t Frank Dillane — one of the original cast member’s — last. If the season continues with flashbacks, he should still be around.

– Was there some chemistry between John and Luci?

‘The Walking Dead’ star Jeffrey Dean Morgan Is Calling For a Negan Spin-Off

With Fear the Walking Dead proving a success – it’s now on Season 4 – it’s perhaps no surprise that Walking Dead bosses are talking about expanding the universe further. One of the major characters to make a big impact on the main show has been villain Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Fans both love to hate and love to love the charismatic bad guy. So the prospect of a spin-off focused on Savior boss Negan is very alluring – and not just to fans. Jeffrey Dean Morgan would love one too.

“I would like to see Negan before the zombie apocalypse,” he told FANDOM while doing publicity for his latest film Rampage. In the movie, Morgan plays a character called Agent Russell, who bears more than a passing resemblance to the Walking Dead bad boy. So much so, in fact, that the actor also discussed the similarities between the two characters, along with the chances that Russell is Negan, and the idea that Rampage could be a prequel to The Walking Dead. You can watch him talking about this here.

More Negan Required


Negan-The-Walking-Dead
Negan was captured by Jadis — and manipulated her into releasing him by tugging on the heartstrings.

“Now, if he’s this guy, Agent Russell, I’d like to see that,” continued Morgan. “But [Walking Dead creator] Robert Kirkman has done a little bit of thought on the Negan pre-zombie apocalypse, and I would be more than happy to see that. I would like to take part in some filming of that. I think that would help explain this character a great deal. Because, unfortunately, the way things go with so many characters and storylines, we don’t see enough — and I think that that is needed, especially when you have a character like Negan.”

The main show has only revealed glimpses, up to now, of Negan’s backstory. And what we’ve learned has been very much according to Negan himself, who is not necessarily a reliable source. Especially when the moments when he’s let details slip have been during periods where he’s been vulnerable. Notably, when marooned in a hut surrounded by walkers with Father Gabriel, and also when tied up by Jadis. He’s certainly been able to manipulate both by spilling some secrets about his past in each instance. So we surely have to take what we’ve learned so far about Negan with a pinch of salt.

Backstory Reveal


The-Walking-Dead-Negan-Gabriel
Negan recounted elements of his backstory to soften Father Gabriel and bend him to his will.

But while Morgan definitely feels Negan’s story could be better explored in his own spin-off series, he did tease that there could be more Negan history revelations to come in The Walking Dead.

“[We’ve had] a little bit more this season, which is nice, but I’d like to see more. I think it’s important not only for the development of the character but I think the show. So we’ll see,” he said.

When FANDOM interviewed show boss Greg Nicotero recently, he told us that he’d love to work on a frozen zombie spin-off – which Morgan would also love to be a part of.

“Why don’t we just go up to Canada or upstate New York where I live? That’d be great,” he said. “I’m sick of shooting in Georgia in the middle of summer. That’s rough. I like the idea of shooting some frozen zombies. That would be cool as hell. Literally and figuratively.”

Rampage is in cinemas now.

‘The Walking Dead’: Treachery Within the Saviors Exposed

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from the Season 8, Episode 15 of The Walking Dead, entitled “Worth.” Proceed with caution.

Last week’s episode ended with Negan miraculously escaping from Jadis’ captivity. On the way back to Sanctuary, he picked up a mysterious passenger. Armed with the knowledge that Simon ordered the massacre of the Scavengers, Negan was determined to expose the treachery within his ranks.

Negan Is Back



With Negan presumed dead, Simon started to feel comfortable as the big man in charge. He even enjoyed having Gregory underneath his heel. Dwight — who has been working as a double agent — began feeling safe as well. Then, Negan’s whistle broke the silence.

At first, it seemed like Dwight was exposed. However, Negan reassured Dwight, reminding him he needs to do the right thing “when the time comes.”

Negan then held a meeting with his inner circle. Simon started to convince him that he only did what needed to be done. “I’m gonna need you on your knees,” Negan said while wielding Lucille. It seemed like lights out for Simon right then and there but Negan surprisingly declared, “all is forgiven.”

Negan then outlined his plan to bring down the Hilltop once and for all — by surrounding the community with outposts and sniping anyone who leaves for supplies, dwindling them down.

Simon’s Mutiny



Simon, motivated by his brush with death, decided to overthrow Negan. He and his loyal followers met Dwight outside. Once more, Negan’s whistle sound. Dwight had tipped the Savior leader off to Simon’s mutiny. Negan then ordered that Simon’s followers be gunned down, but spared Simon’s life, offering him the chance to fight for control.

With the leadership of the Saviors at stake, the two men squared off in Sanctuary’s main hall. An enraged Simon seemed to be getting the upper hand, but in the end, Negan knocked him down with a leg sweep and choked Simon to his last breath. Thus, Simon’s short-lived mutiny ended.

A Traitor Is Unmasked



While the fight was happening, Dwight handed Gregory the map with Negan’s plan. He told the former Hilltop mayor to deliver it to Rick. Gregory bolted out of Sanctuary as fast as he could.

After the fight, Negan awarded Dwight the position as his “right hand man.” Before Dwight could express his gratitude, Negan had something to show him. Negan opened the door into the next room. Laura – the woman who witnessed Dwight’s betrayal – was inside.

Negan began to put the pieces together of Dwight’s betrayal – calling him a “nothing” and a “nobody.” Dwight was still trying to process what had happened. Negan revealed to Dwight that those plans he showed were fake. At first, Negan thought about killing Dwight but figured he was more useful alive.

A lot of questions have been answered in this week’s episode of The Walking Dead. Dwight and Simon received Negan’s punishment like most fan’s expected. But what does Negan really have planned for the Hilltop? What role will Dwight play in the final battle? And will Rick and the others be prepared for what’s to come?

The season-long “all out war” will end with next Sunday’s finale.

‘The Walking Dead’: Jadis’ Plan For Negan Revealed

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from the Season 8, Episode 14 of The Walking Dead entitled “Still Gotta Mean Something.” Proceed with caution.

Fans finally learned Jadis’ plan for Negan Sunday night.

The leader (and sole survivor) of the Scavengers captured the Savior leader after his scuffle with Rick. She took his clothes and his barb wire-wrapped bat, Lucille.

A flashback revealed how Jadis survived the massacre orchestrated by Simon, Negan’s top lieutenant. As the Saviors were mowing down the Scavengers, Jadis fled. She found a body and covered herself with blood, playing possum. After the massacre, she mourned and cleaned herself up.


Jadis
Jadis took Negan prisoner and his bat, Lucille.

Negan — who didn’t know about the massacre or that Simon ordered it — pleaded with Jadis. “That was the work of someone not following the program,” Negan said. “I’ll own this. I am sorry for this.”

Jadis chained Negan to a trolley, and then wheeled out another trolley with a walker tied to it. It appeared to give Negan a chance to fight for his life gladiator-style, as she did Rick earlier in the season.

A still tied-up Negan was able to get a gun and flare, as well as some of Jadis’ personal photos. He threatened to burn the photos with the flare. Jadis tried to wrestle the flare away, not only to save the photos, but signal a helicopter flying overhead.


Jadis
Jadis had a timer set for the helicopter pick-up.

The flare went out, and by the time she retrieved another one, the helicopter flew away. She threatened to burn Lucille as revenge, but Negan begged her not to (revealing Lucille was the name of his dead wife).


Jadis
Who is piloting the mystery helicopter?

She decided to spare both Lucille and Negan. Negan offered to join forces with her again, but she refused, retreating back into the heaps of garbage.

Meanwhile, Morgan continued to lose his sanity, setting up his departure from the show. He and Rick went after the Saviors that escaped Hilltop, brutally killing them all.

Both Rick and Carol told Morgan he was someone who saves, and not kills, but to no avail. When Rick asked why Negan saved him all the way back in Episode 1, Morgan said, “because my son was there.”

Later, after discovering Henry (whom he considers his son) was still alive, Morgan wept.

It was also revealed that the arrow that struck Tara was not tainted, so she will not turn.

5 Reasons Why Season 8 of ‘The Walking Dead’ Has Fans Fleeing

Ratings for the eighth season of The Walking Dead have dropped to first season levels, the lowest in the long-running franchise’s history.

And while the show is still among the most-watched on cable, what’s causing audiences to flee?

FANDOM breaks down five reasons why season eight of The Walking Dead has struggled.

1. Never-ending Conflict

AMC has branded the conflict between Rick Grimes and Negan as an all-out war, but it feels like a drawn-out war. That storyline lasted two full seasons, with both sides taking losses and no end in sight.

And while fan-favorite Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan has been fun to watch, his character is, well, problematic. Negan’s debut was savage and strong, but he’s basically become a caricature. If he had a mustache he’d be twirling it. Getting rid of Negan is the fastest and best way to get The Walking Dead back on track.

2. Too Many Characters

The all-out war has involved numerous factions: The Saviors, Alexandria, Hilltop, the Kingdom, the Scavengers, and Oceanside. And while it makes sense that a war has many players, jumping back and forth between each only drags out the plot. Take Oceanside for example. While we love the idea of an all-female community surviving on its own, the multiple visits have netted nothing but guns – guns that could’ve been found in a stash. And don’t even get us started on the Scavengers, who we can’t even understand.

3. Not Enough Zombies

The title of the show is The Walking Dead, but walkers have taken a back seat to human conflict. On one hand it makes sense. As time passes, communities come together, build walls, and amass weapons to fight the dead. But there’s been more attacks among the living. The undead threat, the horror element that once drove the show, is now gone.

4. Carl’s Death

War has many casualties. So when Carl – one of the original cast members – died of a walker bite instead of in a blaze of glory against Negan, fans felt cheated. Moreover, Carl represented two important things. The first was hope – the fact that a kid could grow up in a post-apocalyptic world and become a leader. The second was family. As Carl lay dying, Rick said everything he did was for him. Now that his son is gone, Rick has lost that motivation.

5. Broken Families

As we just mentioned, family and bonds are important to The Walking Dead. Carl’s death not only ended a father-son relationship, but also the caring mother-son relationship he had with Michonne, and his burgeoning romance with Enid. These were relationships the show built up and fans were invested in. The same could be said about Glenn and Maggie. Even relationships between newer characters – like Aaron and Eric, and Tara and Denise – ended before they are developed. When the show loses those bonds, it loses viewers.

5 Frustrating Things About ‘The Walking Dead’ That Make No Sense

The Walking Dead is one of the best programmes on TV. Watched by millions of fans around the world, the hit show from AMC has become a global phenomenon. However, things don’t always go to plan (anyone remember that deer?). So let’s look at five of the strangest and most unrealistic aspects of The Walking Dead.

Excellent Dental Hygiene


TWD - Negan Shave
Dental (and overall) hygiene is pretty spectacular for a zombie apocalypse.

The Walking Dead takes place in an apocalyptic world. We often see Rick and the rest of the gang move from place to place, scavenging for food and supplies for survival. Food and water are pretty scarce, so it’s strange that every single character has perfect teeth. Seriously, every person on the show has teeth as white as milk.

While everyone is trying to survive and find food, they must stop off and pick up a load of Oral-B ultra white and Listerine: Complete Whitening mouthwash. Either that or they have absolutely horrendous breath.

We’ve never, ever seen Rick and his gang of survivors pick up a load of dental hygiene products. I mean, do they even have toothbrushes anymore? If so, we haven’t seen them. Its an aspect of the show that just makes no sense. We need answers!

Unlimited Supply of Petrol


TWD - Rick and Vehicle
Just where do they get all this petrol from?

In every series of The Walking Dead, we have seen Rick, Daryl, and a host of other characters drive around in vehicles to get from point A to point B. In all eight series’, there has never been a time where petrol was an issue.

There seems to be a never-ending supply of petrol and diesel for the various vehicles the characters use. Where does all this come from? Do they siphon it from other cars? If so, which ones. It was more believable in Series 1 when our gang of survivors were on the road and came across abandoned cars all the time, but now, nope.

They’ve only got a handful of vehicles they use and they can’t go about sharing fuel from one to another and I highly doubt they pop over to the local petrol station to fill up (just leave the cash by the register, folks), so how do they never run out of fuel?

Characters Never Wear Armour


walking dead rick on horseback riding through zombie horde
Characters never seem to protect themselves even though a single scratch is deadly.

In The Walking Dead, a single scratch from a walker is deadly. A single scratch. So why do the characters never seem to protect themselves? You could argue that armour is hard to come by, but the folks over in the Kingdom seem to have loads available, so why not use it?

Remember that time Carol was rescued by survivors from the Kingdom? They were protecting themselves pretty well. Once all the communities came together, did they not share? Rick, Daryl, Michonne, and everyone else just ride into battle wearing jeans and a t-shirt. But why?!

Never mind the danger of getting shot by The Saviours, what happens if you come across a walker? Sure, chances are that a walker will be shot or beheaded, but why take the risk? If all it takes is a single scratch to die and let the virus take over, surely it would be wise to suit up?

Why Is the Grass Not Overgrown


TWD - Prison Aerial Image
Who exactly cuts the lawn? Why is it not an overgrown mess?

Gardeners in The Walking Dead must be super busy throughout the year. Every location we visit on the show seems to be pretty well looked after. Take the prison for example. It’s filled with walkers, the interior is dark and damp, and there’s a sense of misery surrounding the place.

Then you look outside and it’s almost perfectly preserved. The grass is always perfectly mown. Perhaps the survivors use grass cutters every day to keep it tidy, but considering survival is of paramount importance, it’s highly unlikely that lawn styling is at the top of their to-do list.

What about lawnmowers? These machines are so noisy that they would attract attention in a heartbeat. Rick and the gang of survivors should be climbing through jungles at this point. Considering no-one looks after the environment, it seems pretty well kept.

Accurate Headshots. Every. Single. Time.


TWD - Rick aiming pistol
Running? Sprinting? No problem! Perfect headshots all the time.

Almost every episode of The Walking Dead features some kind of combat, either between groups of survivors or against the reanimated dead. This, in itself, is to be expected. What’s not to be expected, however, is how good everyone seems to be at shooting.

All of the survivors seem to have insane skills when it comes to bringing down the enemy. It’s hard enough to hit a target when standing still, so the fact that Rick and the other group members can run and hit their target in the head perfectly is just so unrealistic.

It goes even further. Many people don’t have the training and skills to handle weaponry and are thrust into the story simply by chance. Yes, they must have been able to stay alive and survive by having at least some skill, but the fact that everyone can shoot a walker or another human in the head perfectly is silly.

The Walking Dead has reached its eighth season, and while it remains excellent television, the show can often leave you thinking “Really?” It doesn’t have to be perfect, but it should offer at least some explanation for things that seem impossible.

‘Fear the Walking Dead’: The Best Weapon to Have in a Zombie Attack

The world of Fear the Walking Dead and its sister show The Walking Dead is a very dangerous place.

Threats lurk around every corner, whether in undead or human form. So what’s the very best weapon to arm yourself with during the zombie apocalypse? Turns out one stands out among the rest: the axe. Madison Clark carried a hatchet in Season 3 of Fear the Walking Dead, and Rick Grimes uses a handaxe in the current season of The Walking Dead.

An axe is a powerful slashing weapon that only requires one hand to wield (unlike, say, Michonne’s katana). It has greater reach and force than a short blade (like a dagger). There’s also the utilitarian value as well, chopping wood, rope, etc.

Whereas knives may be easier to find, they made not be able to penetrate bone or armor as well as an ax. Whereas a knife can stab and slash, axes are generally more effective. Axes do have the danger of getting lodged, but with enough momentum, an ax should be able to cleanly slice through.

Live to Fight Another Day

Sometimes it’s not about fighting the undead, but getting away from them. The professional bodyguards over at Draken Security recommend putting as much distance between you and your assailant as possible, with a well-placed shove or even better, a kick.

And if you want to really get range on your enemies, try a projectile weapon like a recurve bow. Unfortunately, bows require ammunition, light/visibility, and have a minimum range. The last thing you want to have is a zombie closing in close and being unable to let an arrow fly, or worse, run out of arrows.

Check out some more zombie fighting techniques in the video above, and be sure to watch Season 3 of Fear the Walking Dead, on available now on home entertainment.

Power of Walking Away: Tamron Hall Talks Life after ‘Today’

When Tamron Hall walked away from the Today show early last year, fans were shocked, appalled, and disappointed that the first black woman to hold an anchor seat on the show would be leaving. There were reports that she was blindsided by news that her 9 a.m. slot would be given to Fox’s Megyn Kelly, and NABJ got involved, citing the decision as a measure of “whitewashing” NBC News’s offerings. (Forbes even reported that Kelly would get close to a whopping to $ 20 million—a heftier salary than Hall’s, whose earnings disqualified her from the magazine’s 2016 list of highest-paid show hosts.)

Her social media posts thereafter reflected her journey into me-time: vacations, charity, and red-carpet sightings. But what about her passion and career? What about the newly landed Weinstein Television deal for a new talk show? How would she surpass the win of landing one of the most-coveted seats on TV?

Yesterday, the award-winning journalist made a stop in Norfolk, Virginia, at Old Dominion University and talked about just that, setting the record straight. “I knew I had worked hard. I would do the Today show for three hours, 45 minutes in between, go to MSNBC, and every weekend I’d tape Deadline Crime,” Hall said. “I don’t begrudge anyone for taking a job offered to them. That’s not my journey. For me, [it’s] a universal feeling: We all want to feel appreciated—at work, in our lives, in relationships—and so that’s just what I felt. I didn’t have a chip on my shoulder. There were reports that I abruptly left, and that’s a lie.”

The award-winning journalist, who hosted MSNBC Live with Tamron Hall, and Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall, also spoke candidly about her journey in choosing her next best boss move, revving up her advocacy for domestic violence victims, and how being “unapologetically black” is non-negotiable:

On rebounding after the Harvey Weinstein scandal and deciding her next career steps:
[The offer for a new TV talk show] came last summer, and at the time, I’d never met Harvey Weinstein. Of course, I knew who he was…and he came to me and my team with a great idea—something that was already in the works…. People have asked me why don’t you [think] about it? I say, “Listen, I think good common sense leads the day.” My record standing for women speaks for itself. … In reality, the Harvey Weinstein situation, thankfully, did not have an impact on my ability to return to TV and I’m very grateful for that.

I’ve been offered a lot of jobs that I don’t want and that I can turn down because when I come back I really want y’all to be proud of me. I want you to be proud of what I do next, so I’m trying to thoughtfully make that transition to where I feel I need to be.

On what keeps her passion strong in domestic violence awareness and victim advocacy:
Ten to 11 years ago, I was invited to MC an event because the original person who was supposed to MC canceled. The organization was called Day One, and they teach domestic violence awareness in public schools in New York. … One young lady after the next started telling their story about being a domestic violence survivor… I’m standing there hearing all these stories knowing that my sister was murdered. … Finally, I just blurted it out, when I got up to the podium, I said, ‘My sister was murdered.’ I knew that there were signs of domestic violence in the home. I lived in Chicago, [and it was] specifically this moment [that] I knew: I heard a commotion in my house. I ran downstairs and my sister and a significant other was there. She had a huge knot on her head, the table had been knocked over—it was just a horrible scene. I said, “What’s going on here!” And he said, “Oh she fell over the table.” I knew that was a lie. I grabbed her, and I got a broom and started to threaten him, like, Get out of my house. … I went upstairs and nursed my sister, put her to bed… I woke up the next morning and he was back in my house, in bed with my sister. I kicked them both out.

For me, it was a very selfish thing. I alienated my sister. We reconciled… we just pretended it never happened. … I’ve met a lot of families who experienced that same thing where you just say, “We’re just going to pretend it didn’t happen. It’ll get better. And it won’t happen again.” Well, it did. And it cost us her. … It is why I’ve dedicated my life to sharing that very painful story as much as I can, because if I can find the courage to share it, then maybe someone else can be helped from it.

On handling naysayers and being fearless:
I try never to get into Twitter fights—-I just don’t have the temperament for them… but I said the other day in an interview that I am unapologetically black. I’m not anti-anyone but I am certainly proud of the Southern black people who raised me. So on Twitter… this white male writer…someone I don’t know… says ‘Oh why’d you have to say that?’ … I said to him on Twitter, “First of all, why did that bother you?”

It should never bother someone that you are unapologetically who you are. I am unapologetically Texan, Southern, a black woman—I come from my culture, but I am inclusive.

When I look back on my life at 48, and the thing I’m trying my best to hold on to—not my youth…it’s that I was fearlessness. I think we all go through that where we take on more responsibilities—life, the savings account—we lose some of that fearlessness that allows you to take those leaps of faith. My spirituality means the world to me, but God is not going to help me unless I help myself. Having that fearless energy going in and shaking hands, meeting people and asking for the job. When you don’t get it, ask again, and again because no is nothing. No is a yes waiting.

The Walking Dead Introduces Compelling New Characters

It’s an exciting time to be a Walking Dead reader. The series is again venturing into uncharted waters as Michonne and her friends make first contact with the largest and most advanced colony they’ve encountered since the start of the zombie outbreak. Issue #177 loses some of the series’ recent momentum, but it still offers a compelling taste of the conflicts to come.

As he occasionally does, writer Robert Kirkman takes a more ensemble-minded focus to this issue. The narrative constantly bounces between scenes set at Alexandria, at the Hilltop and at the Commonwealth. That approach allows Kirkman to touch base with a number of characters, both old and new. Unfortunately, this is another case where the constantly shifting narrative gives the book a jumbled quality. The script never settles in with any one group of characters for very long before moving onto the next. The script also suffers from Kirkman’s tendency to overwrite dialogue. Certain conversations could really benefit from being pruned and streamlined in order to create a more natural flow.

We Need to Talk About Jadis’ Artwork in ‘The Walking Dead’

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from The Walking Dead Season 8, Episode 10 titled “The Lost and the Plunderers.” Proceed with caution.


The Walking Dead doesn’t mess around. Losing Carl in Season 8 Episode 9 wasn’t easy for fans, but it was time to close one arc so another could begin. And what better time to start telling new stories than the middle of a season? As everything burned behind Carl, Rick, and Michonne in the mid-season premiere, new stories were seeded to grow and become a new chapter.

Thanks to Jadis and Simon, the latest developments were also the most shocking moments of Season 8 Episode 10, “The Lost and the Plunderers.”

Jadis Says

It’s been a while since we were intimate with Jadis. Back in Season 8 Episode 7, “Time For After”, we all scratched our heads at Jadis painting in the nude, taking NSFW Rick pics. Since then, we’ve watched her double cross both Rick and Negan while speaking in weird pidgin english devoid of pronouns, quietly wishing she’d just STFU and help Rick beat The Saviors. But Jadis had a different idea of what success looked like for The Scavengers, and it didn’t include saving their lives.

It did, however, include a meat grinder.

After Simon murdered her entire colony and they turned to zombie, Jadis lured them all to a giant meat grinder and turned them all into mush on a conveyer belt.

Before pulverizing her new zombie colony, Jadis explained the origin of The Scavengers to Rick and Michonne while wearing a white dress, splattered in blood.

I used to come here to find things to paint on. Metal sheets. Fabrics. And then after everything changed, I realized this whole place was a canvas – but we were the paint. We could create something new. We could become something new. We did. This was our world, apart from everyone else, in every way. — Jadis

If post-apocalyptic leaders are opportunistic colonizers, Jadis was certainly the most creative. More importantly, Jadis started speaking in complete sentences for the first time, making this the most shocking moment of the episode.

Meanwhile, The Whisperers have been rumored to be making an appearance in The Walking Dead TV Series. Left alone to her own vices, this shocking plot twist may have just set the stage for Jadis to create and lead them.

Was this episode our last glimpse of Jadis, or are her complete sentences indicative of her next art project?

Idiots Rule

Simon has always had crazy eyes, but his allegiance to Negan always seemed to keep his loco in check. At every turn, Simon appeared to be Negan’s best Lieutenant. A lawful evil character in nature, Simon was scary because he did what he was told without asking why. Turns out that was fake news. Simon showed his true colors in Season 8 Episode 10 and went full Chaotic Evil.

Simon is a natural born killer, and he clearly doesn’t worry about following the leader.

Will he lead a coup within The Saviors to oust Negan, or will Negan set him up on a Tinder date with Lucille? Let’s hope for the latter, because Simon is scary af right now.

Negan, Just Admit It

It was bound to happen. While Simon went full evil, Negan went full lovable and fans don’t want him to die. Ever. When Rick told Negan that Carl is dead and left him a note, Negan’s backstory became more relevant than ever. Like a teacher who lost a student too soon, Negan is clearly heartbroken, and now we’re all crying with him.

Rick’s obsession with killing Negan is no longer his best source of power. It might be time to follow a different path, and consider Carl’s advice to stop fighting with Negan. Is Rick too consumed with vengeance to give peace with Negan a chance?

Ocean Size

Although it was the biggest snoozer of the entire episode, the ladies of Oceanside decided not to kill Enid, and we’re proud of them for making the right decision, so she can read the letter Carl left for her.

How will Enid react when she finds out about Carl?

You Win Or You Die

Ultimately, The Walking Dead Season 8 seems to have gone full Game of Thrones, with a twist. For many seasons now, members of colonies wind up dead en masse after poor decisions by leadership, but the leader is usually left standing – forever changed. Each leader rules their colony with a different governing philosophy, and believes they have done everything humanly possible to protect their people from flesh eating zombies and evildoer humans.

But with Simon making moves and Negan making us all cry, who are the leaders now? Is Jadis the Mother of Whisperers? Is Simon the new Ramsay Bolton of The Sanctuary? What about Negan – is he more like Jamie Lannister or Jon Snow ? Either way, there’s a battle amongst leaders which continues to end in the deaths of the people who trust them. Fans can only hope a leader with good character alignment wins long enough to keep Carl’s dream of peace alive in Alexandria before Jadis returns with The Whisperers in tow.

Why ‘Walking Dead’ Fans Are Agog At The Surprise Cameos In Carl’s Dream

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from the midseason premiere of Season 8 of The Walking Dead, titled “Honor”. Proceed with caution.

Fans of The Walking Dead finally got some answers in the Season 8 midseason premiere. And we don’t mean the long-awaited reveal of Carl’s fate. Although, following the shocking ending to the midseason finale, which showed us that Carl had been bitten, we did finally discover that yes, he does die. And that no, he doesn’t hold the secret to the cure. At least, there was nothing to suggest that he might.

But while we learned the nature of his demise, it was another revelation that had fans most stunned. Cast your mind back to the season’s opening episode, and you’ll recall seeing grey-bearded ‘Old Man Rick’ in a soft-focus sequence, living in harmony with Michonne and an older Judith within a rebuilt community. Was it the future? What was the meaning of the scene’s inclusion? Where was Carl? And why was Weird Al Yankovic’s “Another One Rides the Bus” soundtracking the scene? All questions that the sequence provoked were addressed in the midseason finale.

The scene was revealed to be Carl’s vision of the future, recounted to Rick on his deathbed. As for that song? During his speech, Carl says he saw Judith growing up listening to the songs he used to listen to – and so, it appears that Carl’s a closet Weird Al Yankovic fan. But most jarringly, Carl’s vision included both turncoat Eugene and mortal enemy Negan.

In it, Negan is a part of the community. He’s shown tending a vegetable patch. A 6-year-old Judith approaches; he greets her with a huge smile, saying: “Good morning to you, darling”. And the internet just can’t get its collective head around what it saw.

Some thought it was hilarious:

Others just straight up loved it:

And while there’s no guarantee that what Carl envisioned will play out, for fans of the comic books, it confirmed the tack the show will take (or at least gave a nod to what happens in the comics):

But it seems that while fans were left open-mouthed at Negan’s cameo, reactions weren’t overly hostile. When it came to Eugene’s appearance, however, fans reacted angrily:

It seems that fans are more willing and prepared to forgive villain Negan his misdemeanours than they are Eugene — who they might never forgive for betraying his own.

QUIZ: How Did These ‘The Walking Dead’ Characters Die?

It’s no surprise that there’s a fairly high kill count on The Walking Dead. New characters or original fan favorites (RIP Glenn), the series has proven that no one is safe. As we head into the second half of Season 8, it’s impossible to predict who will make it out alive.

With a constant threat at the remaining survivors’ doorstep and a revolving door of characters to care about who will only break your heart when they go and die on us, there’s a long list of dearly departed on the show. But how well do you remember the final swan song of these characters that met their end at the hands (or teeth) of walkers or other fellow survivors?

*Note: the questions in this quiz relate to the TV series only, not the comics. Also, “death” is considered once the living character passes, not when they reanimate and become undead.

Ireland’s border country: walking the line and in love with the landscape

Since the Brexit referendum, the Irish border has again become a source of tension but on the ground it remains a fascinating wilderness of low mountains and fantastic hiking country

Today I’m hiking from Thur Mountain to the Cavan Burren along lanes and among prehistoric relics. This is north-west Ireland, not far from the sea but far enough for me to call it midlands. My route goes from Co Leitrim into Co Cavan, staying close to the border with Northern Ireland. For so long associated with violence and up against the appeal of the west coast, Ireland’s borderland has been ignored by travellers. Yet its history is fascinating and there are many beautiful stretches. Word is starting to get out, but this still feels like Ireland’s undiscovered region.

I spent last night in a B&B in Glenfarne, a thinly spread community of farms and homes. Clancy’s (doubles from €89 B&B, walking packages available) appears to be the area’s heart, a string of businesses along the roadside, under one roof. It’s a B&B, a cafe, a shop and a post office.

‘The Walking Dead’: Where the Characters Stand Before the Midseason 8 Premiere

The second half of The Walking Dead Season 8 will see plenty of heartbreak and perhaps the end of the “all-out war” between Rick Grimes and Negan.

During the midseason finale, fans discovered that Negan’s Saviors were not so easily defeated by Rick’s Militia. Alexandria was burned down, with its survivors fleeing to the sewers. It was there were Rick reunited with Carl, only to learn that his son was bitten by a walker — a death sentence.

Here’s where the major characters stand before the midseason premiere.

Negan


the walking dead season 8 negan

Negan has had more lives than a cat. Seemingly pinned down with Gabriel by a walking herd, he survived, rallied the remaining Saviors, and attacked Alexandria. He waited for Rick to return to ambush him, and the two exchanged blows before Rick fled. He is unrelenting in his quest to display the heads of “the king” aka Ezekiel, “the widow” aka Maggie, and Rick.

Carl


the walking dead season 8 carl

Over the last eight seasons, Carl has gone from young man to brave leader. But despite becoming hardened after so many losses, including his mother Lori, Carl still learned compassion. He tried to sacrifice himself so that Negan would spare Alexandria. He helped the mysterious Siddiq to safety, getting bitten by a walker in the process. A bite is a death sentence. If Carl asks Michonne to help him end his own life, it will be the second time she’s had to assist a friend’s suicide — the first being Andrea.

Rick


the walking dead season 8 rick

Rick has vowed to kill Negan, and will surely be emboldened to do so after the death of his son and destruction of Alexandria. He will also want revenge against Jadis and the Scavengers, who promised to help him but fled.

Michonne

Michonne, who thinks of Carl as her own son, will also be emboldened after his death. She has served as Rick’s partner and conscience, and the two may embark on a quest of revenge together.

Maggie


the walking dead season 8 maggie

Maggie’s top responsibility is to protect her people. “The Widow” vows that the Hilltop will be the last stand of the all-out war, and previews show the remaining Kingdom and Alexandria survivors taking refuge there. Perhaps her pregnancy will finally begin to show as well.

Ezekiel


the walking dead season 8 ezekiel

Like Maggie, Ezekiel’s responsibility is to protect his people. With Shiva dead and the Kingdom defenseless and overrun, Ezekiel surrenders himself to the Saviors.

Dwight


the walking dead season 8 dwight

Dwight finally sided with Rick’s Militia, leading his fellow Saviors into an ambush setup up by Daryl, Tara, Rosita, and Michonne. The continue to question his loyalty but allow him to join them in the sewers. Unfortunately, his betrayal was witnessed by Lauren, who will undoubtedly tell Negan what happened. Negan will be very unhappy to learn of his top lieutenant’s betrayal and will want to take care of him personally.

Eugene


the walking dead season 8 eugene

Eugene made his choice (perhaps out of self-preservation), creating the ingenious iPod plane that led the walkers away from The Sanctuary. Although he helped Father Gabriel and Dr. Carson escape the Savior stronghold, it’s pretty clear where his loyalties lie. Short of killing Negan himself (which he’s had several opportunities to do), it’s unlikely Rick will ever welcome him back.

Morgan



Morgan is a wildcard. He gave up his pacifistic ways and became a ruthless killer, gunning down many Saviors. He was last seen hiding at the Kingdom. His character will be joining the sister show, Fear the Walking Dead, after this season. The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has said that Season 8B leads directly to Season 4 of Fear, so it’ll be interesting to see how that will play out.

The Walking Dead Season 8 returns on February 25 in the U.S., and the U.K. the following night.

The appy wanderer: smartphone walking in our cities’ green spaces

Go Jauntly is a new walking app that uses photographs rather than maps to guide users on routes around woods and byways. We put it to the test in south London

The business of social walking is setting off into a largely unexplored area of navigation. A community-based group in the wooded hinterlands of south-east London has developed a system in which the conventional map of coloured lines and contour patterns has been replaced by photographs of the way ahead.

An app created for the purpose leads walkers from starting point to finish by means of a chain of photos, each image taking over from where the previous one leaves off. This means that in a stroll of, say, two hours, there will be between 20 and 40 guiding pictures. The group is called Go Jauntly and it is run by Hana Sutch and Steve Johnson, both of whom have careers in interactive design; more importantly, both have young children, whose energy and curiosity they wanted to channel into an exploration of the outdoor world.

‘The Walking Dead’: One Fan Theory Bites the Dust in the Mid-Season Finale

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from Season 8, Episode 8 of The Walking Dead, entitled “How It’s Gotta Be.” Proceed with caution.

The mid-season finale of The Walking Dead Season 8 ended with a shocking twist. We all anticipated a major death to leave us all feeling mightily downbeat ahead of the holiday season — and while we wait for Season 8 to start up again in February. But what actually transpired knocked us for six.

If you’re still reading, we’re assuming you’ve either seen the episode or you don’t care about spoilers. So we’ll go ahead now and say it – Carl revealed he’d been bitten. The internet is generally pretty upset about this turn of events, and many have already said adios, even though he’s not gone just yet. But what some are mourning even more than his loss is the sad demise of a popular fan theory. Namely, the ‘Old Man Carl’ theory, which, in one fell swoop, has just been debunked. Or so it may seem.

The theory revolves around the notion that the events of The Walking Dead are actually Carl’s recollections of what happened through the zombie apocalypse, and that the end of the show will reveal Carl as an old man recounting his tales retrospectively. If Carl has been bitten by a walker, his life is about to end – which puts the ‘Old Man Carl’ theory well and truly to bed. RIP ‘Old Man Carl’ theory.

But will events play out like we expect? Let’s look at the evidence.

The Case For

When people get bitten by walkers in The Walking Dead, they transform into the undead themselves. No exceptions. Unless, like Hershel, they get bitten on a limb that’s amputated immediately. Or they get shot or stabbed in the head before they turn. Carl’s bite is on his torso and can’t be amputated. Plus, he’s surely been concealing the bite for too long for any attempt to cut it out to save him.

And as showrunner Scott M. Gimple told The Walking Dead aftershow, Talking Dead: “It will play out as bites play out on the show.”

He followed up with: “It’s very important to Carl’s story and the entire story — what happens in the next episode – so I’m just focused on the fact that right now Carl’s alive and he has some business to attend to. That is a one-way ticket, but I’d like to think that the things we see in the next episode are so important to his life and the other characters’ lives.”

Let’s also draw attention to a deleted Facebook post Chandler Riggs’s father reportedly wrote which stated that Riggs had been fired from the role of Carl in the show… and also an interview Chandler Riggs gave to the Hollywood Reporter in which he says Carl is “going to die.”

The Case Against


carl-the-walking-dead
Is this or isn’t this the moment that Carl got bitten?

It seems remiss to pay heed to an emotional Facebook post by a third party, that’s since been deleted. And there’s always the possibility that it’s part of a fake-out. And let’s also imagine that Riggs’s interview is part of that fake-out. A tall order, maybe. A lot of fans would be very angry.

But let’s look again at Gimple’s quote. He’s been pretty non-committal about what exactly happens. He doesn’t refer to a “walker” bite specifically, just “bites”. And when he says “one-way ticket” that doesn’t necessarily mean death as a direct result of a walker bite.

When Gimple talks about what happens in the next episode being very important to the entire story, could he actually be referring to the introduction of the Whisperers?

The Whisperers is a group from the comics about whom there’s been incessant chatter with regard to their arrival in the show. They wear the skins of the dead and also adopt their behaviour. This allows them to move among the walkers, undetected.

It’s possible that Carl was bitten by a Whisperer, and not a walker which would mean his destiny – at this juncture anyway – isn’t necessarily undead. If you look at the wound, this would seem to support this. It’s a perfect imprint of teeth clamped down on flesh – there’s no attempt to tear flesh away, which is the instinct of zombies in the show. They’re compelled to eat flesh; it’s their sole driving force. We’ve seen the results of a zombie attack enough times to know that they’re usually more savage than this. That doesn’t mean to say he won’t die, of course, but maybe it plays out in some other way.

But what do you think? Is the ‘Old Man Carl’ theory truly dead and buried? Is there a chance we’ve just seen the start of the Whisperers storyline? Let us know via our social channels @getfandom

‘The Walking Dead’: A Rebellion Crumbles in ‘How It’s Gotta Be’

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from the Season 8, Episode 8 of The Walking Dead, entitled “How It’s Gotta Be.” Proceed with caution.

In last week’s episode of The Walking Dead, the show went deep (maybe a little too deep) into the mind of the show’s number one coward Eugene — which ended in him becoming a full Savior.

This week, Season 8 arrived at its mid-season finale with this latest episode entitled “How It’s Gotta Be.” This episode brought everything to a massive high as Daryl’s attack from last week put all the communities in grave danger, reversing all the progress Rick, Maggie, and Ezekiel made.

All the Colonies Are in Danger



Alexandria, Hilltop, and the Kingdom went under siege as Negan and his forces began to retaliate after the attack on Sanctuary. Thanks to Eugene, the Saviors escaped the walker hordes and each of Negan’s lieutenants decided to pay their colonies a friendly visit.

Maggie and her people were put under pressure by Simon while they were on the road. Simon and his men had Jerry hostage, demanding for Maggie’s cooperation. At the Kingdom, Ezekiel tried to hide from Gavin, who is searching thoroughly for him. Gavin eventually caught up to Ezekiel leaving the once king’s fate unknown. Later, Rick arrives back to Alexandria and finally came toe-to-toe with Negan in his own home. After a brutal brawl, Rick escaped the skirmish leaving Negan alone for the time being.

The damage has been done heavily to each of the colonies, so the question is: will the resistance be able to bounce back from this? Just how will Rick and his forces continue the fight? As of now, things don’t look so good and who knows if they’ll be able to recover.

Enid & Aaron Try to Reach out to Oceanside



After leaving the Hilltop, Aaron and Enid set out to Oceanside to try to convince them to join the fight. Instead of things going smoothly, it lead to Enid shooting Natania on accident because she thought a Savior got the jump on Aaron. This turn of events may have soured things a bit for the negotiations.

Oceanside could have proved to be the resistances trump card when things went wrong (which they already have). However, because of Enid’s rash actions, what could happen to both Aaron and herself? Could they still salvage a possible partnership even after what just happened?

Eugene Shows Remorse



After Eugene’s firm decision that he made to Father Gabriel — telling him he would never go along with rescuing Doctor Carson — he then decides to go back on his word. Eugene offered Gabriel and Carson a way out, which Gabriel thanked Eugene for doing the right thing. However, Eugene didn’t seem fully convinced about whether or not his actions could be considered “right.”

This seemed to come out of nowhere as it’s hard to figure out where Eugene truly stands. Has he truly become a Savior or was it too quick to judge him in the last episode? He did play a role in letting the Saviors escape, so that’s also something to take into account. Eugene still proves to be an enigma and it’ll be interesting to see what fate has in store for him.

Carl Is Bitten



Throughout this whole episode, Carl really pulled through by demonstrating heroic features and leadership abilities. As Negan came right up to Alexandria’s doorstep, Carl decided to take charge, using himself as a decoy as Daryl and the others escaped.

He and Negan then had a showdown where he told the Savior leader that he would offer himself as a sacrifice to stop the bloodshed from continuing. After the others break through Alexandria’s walls, Carl hides away which angered Negen, causing him to rain hellfire onto the town.

Unfortunately, Carl couldn’t escape unscathed as he revealed to his father and Michonne underneath the towns sewage system that he’s been bitten off-screen by a walker. This is a sad reveal as viewers were beginning to see the potential that Carl could have as a leader which could make him a more central character in the series if Rick were to pass on.

Though it may have ended with him in a bad state, it’s still an unknown if this bite will mark the end of the young hero. It’s possible that some other force could cause him to lose his life, perhaps even by Negan’s own hands.

Fans will just have to keep guessing as what will happen next, as The Walking Dead will be off for a while. After this mid-season finale, it’s safe to say that the series still hasn’t lost its touch by dropping a major shocker to keep viewers thoroughly engaged.

‘The Walking Dead’: Will Negan Die and If So, Who Will Kill Him?

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from Season 8, Episode 7 of The Walking Dead entitled “Time For After“. Proceed with caution.

The mid-season finale of The Walking Dead Season 8 is imminent, and preview footage suggests that Negan regains the upper hand. But he can’t possibly win out over Rick and the gang, can he? In the comics, we’ve seen that there’s still plenty more to come from Negan. But if we’ve learned anything, it’s that the TV show doesn’t always follow the comics, having diverged from the comic narrative on numerous occasions.

There’s plenty of fans of The Walking Dead that want to see Negan dead, and they’re not alone. So do plenty of the characters in the TV series – and they’re not all on Rick’s side.

So who are the most likely characters to finish off Negan? Let’s take a look…

Rick


Rick Grimes Walking Dead
Rick at his lowest ebb, broken by Negan.

Rick has vowed time and again that he will kill Negan. And it sort of feels like if it’s anyone else that finishes him off, Rick will have been robbed of the chance not only to avenge the deaths of Abraham, and Glenn in particular, but also to repay him for the threats he made against son Carl. Oh, and for forcing him to the point where he was about to cut his own son’s arm off. As viewers, we want Rick to get his very satisfying revenge for all Negan has put him through, including reducing him to a shell of a man after pushing him to breaking point.

However, Rick seems to be softening. In the season premiere, we saw Rick red-eyed and deeply upset – over what we don’t yet know – but he was also muttering about mercy prevailing over wrath. Echoing the words spoken by new character Siddiq, he seems to be re-evaluating, and trying to find an alternative to killing in order to survive. He wants to preserve his humanity, and has already demonstrated he’s against Daryl’s plan to attack the Saviors in a way that results in the death of innocents. This suggests he might yet be lenient when it comes to Negan. If he’s faced with the opportunity to kill a defenceless Negan, right now it feels like Rick might not take it.

Daryl

Daryl has his own personal reasons for wanting revenge against Negan. The ruthless leader of the Saviors imprisoned him and subjected him to torture in an attempt to break him. He had to listen to that earwormy “Easy Street” song on loop for goodness’ sake. Enough to drive anyone to murder? It’s no surprise that Daryl is taking a hard line when it comes to the Saviors right now. He’s lived under Negan’s rule, and knows it ain’t pretty. For Daryl, there is no mercy and if he gets half a chance, he’ll take it.

In a face-off between Negan and a Daryl hellbent on retribution, we don’t fancy Negan’s chances much.

Eugene


The Walking Dead-Eugene-Tanya-Frankie
Eugene is asked to make suicide pills by Tanya and Frankie.

In Episode 7, we were reminded that Eugene was asked by Tanya and Frankie, two of Negan’s wives, to manufacture suicide pills which they planned to use to take Negan out. It would likely have worked, but when Eugene discovered their true intentions he refused to hand them over. He later gave them to Sasha, of course.

But was the reason he wouldn’t hand them over because he was scared? Probably. Eugene has always been a big scaredy cat, afraid to step out of line. Episode 7 spent time focusing on Eugene, and exploring where his head is at right now. The outcome? Yes, he wants to survive and is partially driven by selfish motivations, but he is also keen to save others. We saw him sticking his neck out in order to save people – he was ultimately prepared to risk Dwight shooting him in order to press ahead with his plan to lure the walkers away and save the many. He’s certainly a tortured man, haunted by what happened to Sasha. He’s a man that’s turned to drink in order to quiet his mind and sleep through the night. There’s still a chance that this man in turmoil could do something unpredictable.

If it came to it now, could he end Negan’s life? “I am Negan” may trip off his tongue but if it was for the greater good, could he redeem himself by killing Negan? Quite possibly. He’s definitely braver, more capable, and more confident in his capabilities than he used to be. And maybe he’ll need to sacrifice himself to do it.

Dwight

Dwight has gone from Negan’s right-hand man, and a man we detest, to a sympathetic character prepared to stab his leader in the back. Or head. Ahem.

But will he need to be the one to kill Negan in order to prove once and for all to Rick and co. – Daryl and Tara especially who have very specific reasons to hate and distrust him – that he’s on their side? That he’s not the villain they thought him to be? And if he is, will he have to lose his life in order to get redemption? He did kill Denise after all, and he’s been wearing Daryl’s leather gilet since forever. If those aren’t grounds for dying in order to be redeemed we don’t know what are.

Rosita

Rosita, like Rick, has also sworn to kill Negan. In fact, she tried once and came a cropper. It turns out she’s the unluckiest assassin ever. The bullet, which she had Eugene make for her, was on target – but it rebounded off Lucille. Rosita is still understandably mad at Negan for brutally murdering Abraham, the man she loved, and she has vowed revenge. And though she ruled herself out of Daryl’s reckless plan that flies in the face of Rick’s wishes, she could still prove to be a thorn in Negan’s side when push comes to shove. And she’d probably be willing to sacrifice herself in order to avenge the death of Abraham, right?

Carl

Because of Negan, Carl has almost lost an arm at the hands of his father and almost lost his life too. Were it not for Shiva jumping in at a critical moment, Carl would be dead right now. Not only that, he’s seen his dad driven to breaking point by the cruel dictator, and has even spent time in his company at the Sanctuary – where Negan made fun of his missing eye. Carl has been made to feel small and powerless by Negan, and has more reason than anyone to seek revenge. Having already once gone on a mission to kill Negan, Carl could easily do so again – especially if the people he loves are under real threat.

Catch the midseason finale of Season 8 on December 10 in the US and a day later in the UK.

ENTERTAINMENT UPDATE:

The Latest ‘Walking Dead’ Was All About Powerful Women, Especially Rosita

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from the Season 8 Episode 6 of The Walking Dead entitled “The King, The Widow, and Rick.” Proceed with caution.

The Walking Dead celebrated women for Thanksgiving, and the Internet approved. The sixth episode of Season 8 was about friendship, survival, and the strength of femininity. While Ezekiel was still in mourning (RIP Shiva), Maggie, Rosita, Carol, Tara and Michonne swooped in to remind fans The Walking Dead is an inspiring story of survival.

Naked Jadis

“The King, The Widow, and Rick” roared right away. Immediately, fans were exposed to the naked female leader of the Scavengers. Yes, Jadis is back, and apparently she likes to sculpt in the almost-nude while surrounded by piles of trash. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Rick’s Polaroid Fail

Poor Rick. He’s been taking Polaroid photos of dead Saviors for Jadis the whole time to no avail. He showed Jadis his photos to try and convince her to join his team, and she told him to talk to her sculpting hand.

Jadis’ lackeys took Rick prisoner, leaving the women in charge back at camp.

The Widow

Maggie Rhee assumed the leadership of Hilltop, and former major Gregory finally got his comeuppance. It’s extremely satisfying to watch him whimper as the widow queen took control of the colony he almost destroyed.

Maggie’s decision to put Gregory in the same pen as the Saviors was satisfying, but her uterus was the talk of Twitter. Where’s her baby bump?

Meanwhile, Nostalgia

The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 6 also reminded fans aboutcommunity. To maintain a safe circle of trust during the zombie apocalypse, three questions are asked. It’s been awhile since we’ve heard them, but Carl Grimes puts his dad’s tradition to good use when he met Siddiq, and fans approve.

Carol’s Maternal Instincts

In the spirit of nostalgia, fans are reminded why children should never, ever approach Carol Peletier, unless they’re willing to accept the consequences of survival.

No, You’re Crying

Carol mentions Sophia, her daughter who died early on during the outbreak, and now we’re all calling our moms to say “I love you.”

DON’T CALL ME BABY

During a mission with Michonne, Rosita Espinosa reminded everyone why it’s never a good idea to doubt a woman’s strength, especially when she’s holding a rocket launcher in the middle of all out war. Rosita is every woman, we are all Rosita, don’t call us “baby girl,” and yes we’re really going to “use that thing.”

Vengeance Is Sleeping

Speaking of not f-ing with badass women, Tara doesn’t trust Dwight, hates Negan, and wants revenge. Dwight killed her girlfriend Denise, and the Saviors are going to pay. Tara is a woman on a mission, and she doesn’t have to twist Daryl’s arm to enlist his help.

From the first scene with a nearly naked female body to it’s final moment, The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 6 belongs to women everywhere who have been doubted or mistreated, and the Internet is grateful.

What do you think? Will Alexandria and the Hilltop win their war now that women are in charge? Should Carl trust Siddiq now that he’s asked the three questions? Are Tara and Daryl taking revenge to the extreme? Will their obsession with vengeance bring harmony or more war? Let us know what you think @getfandom on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram .

A ‘Walking Dead’ Sacrifice Will Make You Ugly Cry

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from the Season 8, Episode 4 of The Walking Dead entitled “Some Guy.” Proceed with caution.


The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 4 will turn you into a cat person and make you ugly cry. If you don’t want a spoiler, now is the time to turn away. Shiva, Ezekiel’s beloved tiger, sacrifices herself to save his life. She’s devoured by walkers, and, just like Ezekiel, all we can do is watch. Although so many plot points are covered in the latest episode of The Walking Dead, “Some Guy” belongs to Shiva.

In the world of The Walking Dead, destruction is everywhere. Shock is the norm, and survival is redefined. A sense of family, camaraderie, loss and deterioration grows with every arc in the story. In Season 7 everyone got a big cat & fell in love with her roaring meow. She’s gone, and now we’re all ugly crying.

Ezekiel Almost Dies First

Before Shiva appears, Ezekiel is almost killed by a Savior. As usual, The Walking Dead avoids predictable moments, but an Easter Egg clearly signals Ezekiel is now on borrowed time.

R.I.P. Shiva

Ezekiel lives, but Shiva dies a horrible death that can’t be unseen, sacrificing herself for Ezekiel. No matter how many losses we’ve experienced up to this point in the story, losing our CGI pet is too much to bear. Nobody was ready to say goodbye to Shiva.

Remembering Shiva

ICYMI, fans have been in love with Shiva since the Season 7 finale, when saves Rick Grimes’ son, Carl.

Nobody is Smiling RN

Ezekiel opens “Some Guy” with a passionate speech that isn’t often given by just any guy. His leadership qualities fill the first 2 minutes with positivity and hope. He tells the Kingdom to smile, in the face of fear.

He guides his kingdom toward saving themselves, an omen for what’s to come.

In “Some Guy”, Ezekiel’s comrades die to save him, including Shiva. Nobody is smiling anymore.

Just like the comics, Shiva dies because of her fierce loyalty to Ezekiel. Shiva is every fan’s cat, and all our cats are Shiva. After watching “Some Guy”, every cat in the home of a Walking Dead fan is getting wet food and a toy. Every animal companion is getting extra treats and love. After witnessing the most painful death in The Walking Dead, we remember all our pets who have sadly taken a trip to rainbow bridge while we hold our furry friends close. Tonight, we are all Ezekiel’s friend, because we’ve lost our tiger, too.

The zombie apocalypse has finally breached the heart of the Kingdom, but most of the major plot points are overshadowed by a loss we can’t unsee. Did you watch “Some Guy”? Did you notice the Ezekiel Easter Egg? Did you cry too? Let us know @getfandom on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.

An Ominous Episode of The Walking Dead Questions Who the Real Monsters Are

Warning: This post contains spoilers for Season 8 of The Walking Dead.

Following Morales’ return, the third episode of The Walking Dead‘s eighth season saw the lines between the “good” and “bad” guys become more blurred than ever. After attempting to reason with his former companion, Rick seemed conflicted over the kill-or-be-killed mindset of his group — perhaps foreshadowing the, “My mercy prevails over my wrath,” flash-forward from the premiere.

“Look at us, Rick. Look at us. We’re two a—holes who will do whatever we have to just to keep going and the only difference is I’m the one holding the gun,” Morales said. “That doesn’t make me any worse than you, Rick. That just makes me luckier. ‘Cause let’s face it. If it wasn’t me, if it was you holding the gun, I’d be brains out on the floor right now.”

It was then that Daryl snuck up from behind and shot Morales without a second thought, giving Rick even more cause for concern. “I know who it was,” Daryl told him. “That don’t matter. Not one little bit.”

And Daryl wasn’t done showing how little compassion he has for Negan’s followers. After Rick gave a lone survivor his word that he could take one of their cars and leave if he told them where the outpost’s guns had been taken, Daryl shot the Savior in the head after he gave his answer.

Several other characters were plagued with similar moral crises in “Monsters,” with the conflict between Morgan and Jesus coming to physical blows. “I’m not right. I know that, I’m not right,” Morgan said of his desire to kill the Saviors they took hostage. “But that doesn’t make me wrong.”

The episode also saw the death of Eric, who bled out after an emotional goodbye with Aaron.

The hour ended on a cliffhanger when Ezekiel’s celebration, in honor of taking an outpost without losing a single soldier, was cut short by a sniper who began firing on the group.

“Some Guy,” the fourth episode of Walking Dead‘s eighth season, will air Nov. 12 at 9 p.m. on AMC.

‘The Walking Dead’: 6 Incredibly Inventive Ways to Whack a Walker

Surviving the zombie apocalypse often calls for creative means to escape the ever-advancing clutches of death. Survivors on The Walking Dead are adept at disposing of zombies with guns, arrows, and knives. But what happens when they run out of ammo or can’t reach a trusty blade?

That’s when the most-skilled survivors get truly innovative. Those with an undying will to survive utilize anything they can to obliterate the approaching undead. Here are six ingenious ways characters have killed walkers on The Walking Dead.

Recycled Ammo



In Season 2 Episode 5,”Chupacabra,” while searching for Carol’s missing daughter, Sofia, Darryl falls from his horse down a hill into a lake bed. During the fall, an arrow pierces through Darryl’s side. He attempts to climb the hill, only to fall again and pass out. He then awakens from a vision of his missing brother, Merle, to find a walker munching on his boot.

After brutally crushing the walker’s skull with a stick, he sees another approaching. With no other arrows available, Darryl pulls the arrow from his body to slay the oncoming walker. While using an arrow is nothing new, recycling one from his own body is a clever way to survive.

Water Is the Key to Life


Hosing down a zombie horde.
Water does a body good — unless you’re a zombie of course.

After their bus crashes on the way to Washington in Season 5’s “Self Help,” Glenn, Maggie, Abraham, Eugene, Tara, and Rosita search for another vehicle. They come across a fire truck, but unfortunately, it breaks down and they find themselves overwhelmed by a horde of walkers.

As the group struggles to survive, Eugene takes aim with the fire truck’s high-powered water hose and expunges the attackers. Using water to rip bodies apart is an incredibly creative yet gory way to kill walkers. In this case, water proved to be the key to surviving the undead.

Light ‘Em Up!



In Season 5’s “The Distance,” Rick runs out of ammo as he and Michonne fend off a group of walkers in the woods. In an enlightening and resourceful move, Rick pulls out his flare gun and fires a flare into the head of an approaching walker. The flare not only puts down the walker but also serves as a beacon to help the rest of the group find the pair.

Zombie Bowling


Finish him!

In Season 5’s “Crossed,” after an attacker pins Darryl down, he frantically searches for anything to defend himself. The only thing near him is a burned walker fused to the ground. In a move straight out of Mortal Kombat, Darryl sticks his fingers in the walker’s eye sockets and rips his head and spine out. He then uses the head and spine like a bowling ball to fend off his attacker. This innovative tactic illustrates why Darryl is one of the most resourceful survivors on The Walking Dead.

Cord Cutting


the walking dead rick michonne cars with wire strung between them
Flawless execution.

As one of the most inventive ways any characters have annihilated walkers on The Walking Dead, Season 7’s “Rock In The Road” saw Rick and company racing to Alexandria ahead of the Saviors who are looking for Darryl. On the way, they come across a herd advancing on the highway. In a well-orchestrated and quite ingenious maneuver, Rick and Michonne drive two cars with a cable strung between them down the road, quickly dispatching of the oncoming walkers. The move required perfect timing and execution by the two to ensure maximum carnage.

Taking Out the Trash


One man’s trash is another man’s weapon in the zombie apocalypse.

When Rick seeks to prove himself to the Scavengers in Season 7, Episode 10, “New Best Friends,” the Junkyard dwellers subject Rick to an odd trial by combat. They shove him into a pit walled with trash where he must face their armored champion walker, Winslow. Equipped with a spiked helmet and spikes all over his body, Winslow proves to be a formidable opponent.

Rick’s attempts to vanquish his foe with sheer strength fall flat as he can’t penetrate the armor. Michonne assesses the situation and suggests Rick use the walls of the pit. After pinning Winslow to the ground with trash, Rick uses a shard of glass to terminate his enemy. And Rick’s brains-over-brawn feat helped secure the Scavengers’ cooperation in the fight against Negan.

‘The Walking Dead’ Resurrects a Character in “The Damned” & Twitter is Confused

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from the Season 8, Episode 2 of The Walking Dead, entitled “The Damned.” Proceed with caution.

The Walking Dead season 8 episode 2 picked up exactly where episode 1 left off: all-out war. The episodes have almost nothing else in common. While season 8 episode 1 is about “Mercy”, episode 2 “The Damned” is all about tactics. From armor to sharpshooting skills and ethical dilemmas on the battlefield, season 8 episode 2 places fans in the middle of battle.

Through the din of war, Ezekiel’s propensity for Shakespearean tragedies provides levity, while Morgan is reborn, and Tara has a disagreement with Jesus. Season 8 episode 2 proves battle scenes can be rife with a storyline, but it’s the rebirth of Morgan, and the resurrection of a character from the past shaking Twitter to its core.

A Time For War

All-out war is not an exaggeration. It’s war, it’s hell, it’s happening fast and “The Damned” doesn’t waste time.

ICYMI King Ezekiel is the Thespian Everyone Needs

The battle doesn’t break the King. Ezekiel proves once again he can turn all the world’s apocalypse into a Shakespearean stage. The theater is his survival tactic, and it’s working.

Nobody Puts Baby In A Corner

Breaking character, Ezekiel explains his theatrical affect to Carol; it’s all an act. “Fake it ’til ya make it, baby” he explains, and he’s serious. Carol’s reaction gives Twitter life.

Oh S–t, It’s Morales

Morales is back! And he’s with the Saviors.  The initial surprise of his appearance created an all-out Tweetsorm.

Um, Wait, Who Is Morales?

Problem is, everyone forgot about Morales because 7 years is a long, long time ago.

Oh Right, THAT Guy.

“Who is Morales” almost took down search engines, while fans Tweeted answers.

Does Morales know Negan killed Glenn? If he knows, does he care?

A Time To Love

Morales’ arrival shook Twitter, but Carzekiel is coming and the Internet is ready. In a world full of walkers, love may spring eternal for Carol and Ezekiel.

A Time to Die (maybe)

Carzekiel may be coming, but Aaron and Eric are already in love and nobody wants either of them to die. Sadly, it doesn’t matter what anyone wants for either of them. All out war is hell, and the couple may find themselves separated forever.

Please don’t die Eric. Please don’t die Eric. Please don’t die Eric.

Morgan The Immortal

Eric’s future is currently unknown, and that sucks. Too bad he isn’t Morgan, because in the world according to Morgan, he can’t die.

During a battle, Morgan appears to take a bullet and drops to the ground.

Don’t worry, Morgan is right. He isn’t going to die, not today. Presumably saved by his armor, Morgan rises a changed man, without a scratch, but his code of ethic and morals is dead. Morgan is the harbinger of death in the middle of a post-apocalyptic battle. Watch out, Saviors. Morgan wants to kill you, and he’s got two guns.

ICYMI Shiva Knows Best

Saving the day is what Shiva does best. Meow.

Um, What About Father Gabriel?

Father Gabriel did not appear in this episode, so we’ll just have to wait another week to see if he really needed to change into his s–tin pants.

Tara vs Jesus

Just because two people are fighting for the same cause doesn’t mean they agree on how to handle the battle itself. Jesus wants to show mercy to saviors who seem to be willing to surrender, but Tara has a different idea.

The two argue but remain united in the cause. Twitter does what it does best: picking sides.

#TeamTara

#TeamJesus

So. Intense. O.M.F.G.

Real-time reviews are in, and in between googling “Who Is Morales“, Twitter approves of “The Damned.”

The intensity of season 8 episode 2 is muffled by the surprise of not one, but two resurrections. Walking into season 8 episode 3, Morgan has risen as a different version of himself, and Morales is back. Will Morgan lose his mind without his code of morals and ethics? Will Morales rejoin Rick Grimes and co in the fight for a better world? Morales appears to be guarding a baby named “Gracie” but the rest of the story will have to wait until next week. Once again, The Walking Dead leaves fans with a cliffhanger, and enough questions to keep everyone Tweeting until next Sunday.

‘The Walking Dead:’ The Most Irksome Moments from the Season 8 Premiere

It’s taken eight years for AMC to reach the 100th episode of The Walking Dead, and I can’t help but feel a bit let down. Don’t get me wrong, it was an okay episode, much better than some that have aired in the past (cough Season 2, Episode 4 cough), though it didn’t stop me from being peeved by those dumb moments that just didn’t make any sense. I hope you can bear with me here while I rant about some of the parts that just annoyed me.

When Did They Suddenly Become Ninjas?



Okay, this was sort of a minor issue, but it still got on my nerves. In the beginning, we see Rick, Morgan, and the others stealthily take out the Savior scouts along the road. Now, I don’t have personal experience sneaking up on someone and stabbing a giant sharp stick into their back or anything, but I feel that it’s not as easy as they showed it. The scouts seemed like oblivious NPCs from like Fallout 3 or Skyrim the way they were so easily taken out; it was a little ridiculous. Throughout the series, I always had a major gripe with how silent and ninja-like the zombies are when they’re constantly sneaking up on people (I mean, really, they’re loud walking corpses 😕).

How Fast Are Those Zombies Anyway?



Their whole plan throughout the episode was to attract hordes of zombies to Negan’s base, overrun it, and basically render it defenseless. We can see Daryl, Carol and the Twizzler girl (Tara) setting off a bunch of explosions to get the horde trudging in the direction of Negan’s base. Now, it’s a pretty good plan in theory, however when you mix in a bit of The Walking Dead “reality” there is one flaw with it: zombies are freaking slow. Seriously this isn’t World War Z. It would have taken them weeks to get as far as they did. I understand there was a time jump, so maybe they’ve been attracting those zombies for a long time to prepare for the moment they carry out their attack. Yet I still feel like that wouldn’t make sense, I don’t think Rick and the rest of the gang would have spent weeks gathering all these zombies and consistently keep on attracting them until they were close enough to reach Negan. I guess I don’t completely comprehend how these walking flesh bags work in the show.

Aren’t Bullets Scarce as Hell?

There are too many scenes in this episode where they just unload a crap ton of bullets for no reason. There is the scene where Carol and her cronies sneak up (again sneaked) on some Savior by his car, then proceed to unload on the one guy when he hides behind his car. Then, when they have their little showdown with Negan (I’ll get to that later, trust me), when Rick decides to start shooting, everyone begins firing. They go crazy shooting at these windows in Negan’s base and it was completely baffling. I was thinking to myself, “What the hell are they shooting at?” and “Are the Saviors shooting back at them?” Please help me understand, because in such a dangerous setting where supplies are so low and rare to find, wouldn’t bullets be the first thing you would want to conserve? They must have gotten their hands-on Herschel’s infinite ammo cheat.

WHY DIDN’T RICK JUST SHOOT NEGAN!!!???



Seriously! The guy was right there the whole time throughout his freaking monologue and all Rick had to was a line up a shot then BAM, problem solved! Rick could have also hidden a marksman in trees or bushes to get a clear shot at Negan and then put a bullet in the dude’s skull. Now, I know that it would’ve been anti-climactic to just kill the archenemy in the very first episode of the season, fans would’ve been pissed off by that and I can understand why. Though this whole scene with them having their little stare down was just so ridiculous. I was just watching that scene carry out the whole time and yelling at the screen, “Do it! Do it, Rick! He’s right there! Just do it already!” I felt like I was channeling Shia LaBeouf. But alas it didn’t happen, and we now have to wait another 18 episodes of The Walking Dead for that to hopefully happen because Rick couldn’t stop to think how easily he could have taken him out.

I know it’s the first episode of the season and hopefully it picks up a little momentum. It’s just that this premiere was filled with a lot of annoying irritating parts that made it kinda hard to enjoy. However, I will say though that I enjoyed the future/dream moments of old man Rick. I thought they were well done and I’m excited on what they will plan to do with that plotline next. It’s just because of those other head-scratching moments that I don’t list this as a top episode in The Walking Dead series.

‘The Walking Dead’: Rick’s Beard, Polaroid Camera Melt Twitter in S8 Premiere

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from the Season 8 premiere of The Walking Dead, entitled “Mercy.” Proceed with caution.

“All Out War” is here, and just like the Great War of Westeros, the build-up is insane. “Mercy,” the 100th episode of The Walking Dead, gives fans no choice but to sit on the edge of their seats. Amid intense fighting, there’s no shortage of material to obsess over. From Rick’s beard, his Polaroid camera, Weird Al Yankovic, and spineless Gregory disappointing everyone as usual (ugh!) the only thing anyone can do now is Tweet (until next week).

That Opening Scene Tho

While it isn’t news to superfans, a portion of the opening scene is one big Easter Egg. It looked familiar because it’s happened before.

Everyone Wants A Polaroid Camera RN

Rick busted out a Polaroid camera and it’s straight outta the 1980’s. Twitter is obsessed.

Here’s Why Rick’s Polaroid Pic Will Give You All The Feels

No, YOU’RE crying. Nevermind, we’re all still crying. 😭

Rick’s Beard Will Distract You From The Feels

Put those tissues aside and stop sniffling, because Twitter’s facial hair obsession is the distraction you need. Fans are entrenched in nail-biting suspense, but between battle scenes, there are flash-forwards to future Rick. It’s literally impossible to look away from his big gray bushy beard. Once beyond the beard, fans on Twitter can’t stop questioning where it fits in the timeline.

Beard aside, Rick Grimes left everyone wondering WTF because he didn’t kill Negan when he had the chance.

He’ll do it eventually, and we all know it.

Old Man Rick Likes Weird Al Yankovic?

Yes. Yes, he does. Old man Rick isn’t just sporting a beard, he’s dropping clue bombs. During the old man Rick scenes, there’s music playing in the background. It sounds like a cover of “Another One Bites The Dust” by Queen, but it’s actually Weird Al Yankovic’s “Another One Rides The Bus.”

 

Meanwhile, Gregory Still Sucks

Seriously. Gregory is so bad, he’s hard to watch. He’s the reason one of our beloved survivors is in trouble, but we’ll get to that later. Instead of lobbing objects at TV screens, everyone took to Twitter.

Don’t Touch The RV

Too late. it’s gone. Rest In Peace, RV. You will be missed.

Don’t Touch Father Gabriel Either

Father Gabriel suddenly feels compassion for Gregory, so he tries to help him. Minutes after getting help from Father Gabriel, Gregory does what he does best: betrays him. Naturally, Father Gabriel proceeds to do what he does best. He seeks refuge inside a building, shuts himself in, and takes a breath. Problem is, someone else is in the building and his name is Negan. Damn.

SO INTENSE

The Walking Dead season 8 premiere basically gives everyone a temporary case of restless leg syndrome.

 

It’s going to take all week to decode the timeline and figure out why old man Rick is so old. Is the entire story a nightmare in the mind of old man Rick? WTF is Father Gabriel going to do, trapped in a building with Negan? How does one find film for a Polaroid camera in the middle of a zombie outbreak? Despite the answers to any of these questions, one thing is certain: nobody will miss Gregory when he’s gone.

This recap contains spoilers for The Walking Dead Season 8, episode 1, titled “Mercy.”

The title for The Walking Dead‘s Season 8 premiere couldn’t be more appropriate; after last season saw our heroes being continually outwitted and oppressed by Negan and his brutal Saviors, this opening hour showed our characters and the audience some mercy, with the forces of Alexandria, Hilltop and the Kingdom banding together to fight back against the bat-wielding bully. 

The triumphant tone of the premiere fulfilled the promise of the Season 7 finale and leveled the playing field between Rick’s posse and the bad guys; ending with the Saviors’ base being overrun with walkers and leaving two unlikely characters — Negan and Father Gabriel — trapped in a trailer with no obvious way out. While you might expect Negan to want to kill the preacher outright (or at least use him as a human shield), it sounds like there’ll be a little more to their storyline in coming episodes. Read more…

‘The Walking Dead’: Why Dwight is the Most Important Character in Season 8

The most important character in Season 8 of The Walking Dead isn’t Rick Grimes. It isn’t Negan. It isn’t Daryl (gasp!) or even The Scavengers (aka The Junkyard Gang). As long as he’s alive, it’s Dwight.

Dwight is a member of The Saviors, the baddies who scare the 💩  out of everyone. Toward the end of Season 7, Dwight seemed to turn a corner when one of his wood carvings appeared after a shocking fight between the Alexandrians and The Saviors. The implication was that he’d be willing to help our favorite survivors of Alexandria and The Hilltop Colony. But Dwight is hardly trustworthy and has played both sides in the past. Will he pull through for the survivors, or remain loyal to The Saviors? To predict Dwight’s next few moves, we turned to the best method of character alignment analysis, tried and true: Dungeons and Dragons (5th edition, of course). 🤓

In most role-playing games like Dungeons and Dragons, every player must choose an alignment for their character. There are 9 alignments, and all include a combination of good and evil, law and chaos. To understand Dwight’s character alignment, we held him up to the ultimate test. Who are the evil characters in The Walking Dead, who are the do-gooders, and where does Dwight fit in? Yeah, we went there:

Morgan Jones



The best way to understand Lawful Good is to think of Obi Wan Kenobi. Like Obi Wan, Morgan fights evil with compassion. He keeps his word, uses Aikido to fight evil, and has a strong sense of honor and duty. However, while we know how things turned out for Obi Wan, we don’t’ yet know if Morgan will stick to his current style of taking down the big baddies. We’ve seen signs of change, but his sense of honor and discipline has yet to wane. Morgan is Lawful Good.

Rick Grimes



Rick Grimes has leadership qualities and comes off as a consistent do-gooder. But (and this is a real doozy when it comes to character alignment), Rick has been lured by evil decisions which have come back to haunt not only him but the people who trust him as their leader. The Saviors have wanted to kill the Alexandrians and Hilltop Colony ever since Rick and his tribe raided one of their compounds and mercilessly killed every single person in the building. Going into Season 8, Rick’s leadership qualities are back intact, only after he spent time disappointing all of his followers by giving into Negan’s demands, and that makes him nothing more or less than Neutral Good.

Daryl, Carol, and Michonne





Nobody fights for a cause quite like a rebel who loves their friends. Whether good or bad, a Chaotic Good character has strong morals, but F society. Personal freedom is important to a rebel, but they will never walk away from fighting for greater good. Much like Kara “Starbuck” Thrace in Battlestar Galactica, Chaotic Good characters are the ones who will save us all, even if it’s at their own expense. Carol, Daryl and Michonne are all Chaotic Good, and we’d bank on at least one of them dying for their friends.

Walkers



Like the Grim Reaper, Walkers have one job to do and one job only: eat people, and brains. They don’t care if they eat the brains of good or bad people. As long as they have a head, they have a job to do, and they’re going to do it. No. Matter. What. Walkers are Lawful Neutral, even if we fear them the most.

Gregory 🙄



Gregory is a lot like Star Wars’ Boba Fett. Like Boba Fett, Gregory will do just about anything to please anyone. It seems evil, but it’s really just what True Neutral characters do best: nothing good, and nothing bad. True Neutral characters lack emotion and conviction. They do whatever they think is best to do depending on the moment. Gregory‘s inability to make real decisions makes him one of the worst leaders on The Walking Dead, and it’s incredibly hard not to throw things at the TV every time he’s on screen. Maybe with a little backstory, his character will become more interesting (?) but right now he’s just another True Neutral, making him the lamest character in the entire series. Gregory is a true True Neutral. Eyeroll.

Jadis



Jadis is the leader of The Junkyard Gang (aka The Scavengers) and is very likely the “little birdie” who told Negan about Rick’s plans to fight The Saviors. But can we blame her? With a Chaotic Neutral character alignment, this is to be expected. Jadis is a lot like Q from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Aside from sharing a most curious way of talking, neither Q or Jadis are actually evil, even when their actions appear to be cruel. Chaotic Neutral is often called “The Free Spirit” because they are anarchists. They do not believe in any form of government, and usually, stay mostly focused on their own well being. Chaotic Neutral characters do not take pleasure in the suffering of others, nor are they motivated by it. These anarchists are curious characters. Jadis is not likely to stay loyal to Negan if he impedes upon the well being of her gang.

Simon (is Negan)



Ugh. Simon. Just, ugh. He’s the worst, and he’s basically the Darth Vader of The Walking Dead. Lawful Evil characters are totally diabolical, but not independent. They will always follow their evil leader, whether it’s Negan, or the Emperor. They are totally loyal to their leader and have no regard for life. Known as “The Dominator,” they are the ultimate follower, making them the stewards of evil and destruction. Lawful Evil characters are obedient; they will follow the code of evil at all times. Yikes. And that smile is terrifying, ffs. Simon is Negan’s most loyal follower, and he DGAF if anyone gets hurt, including other Saviors.

Negan is Chaotic Evil



Negan. Is. Terrifying. If Ramsay Bolton were in The Walking Dead universe, he would be Negan. Chaotic Evil characters are selfish destroyers and have no respect for rules. The rule is whatever a Chaotic Evil decides it is. These evil characters are greedy and take from others. Whether it’s Ramsay taking Winterfell, or Negan taking from, well, everyone he can find on the Eastern seaboard, these are the baddies who deal in pure Chaotic Evil.

So, what about Dwight? Is he evil?



Dwight is the malefactor on The Walking Dead. His backstory shows that at one time he may have been good. When he first met Daryl, back before he looked exactly like Two-Face, he answered the infamous 3 Questions. He told Daryl he’d killed more Walkers than he could count but had never killed a human because “When you kill a person, there’s no going back.”  Later on in the story, we find Dwight with a half-burned face, killing humans without remorse. It’s clear that by deciding to re-join the Saviors in Episode 6 of the sixth season, he left behind any honorable qualities he may have once maintained. Dwight is Neutral Evil, which basically makes him the Littlefinger of Alexandria. He will work for both sides without any real conviction and engages in evil behavior if he thinks he’ll get away with it. Ew.

Dwight is the most important character walking into Season 8 because he is the malefactor in the story. He’s a wrongdoer, who appears to be willing to do right. But, as with all wrongdoers, he cannot be trusted. He’ll engage in mayhem and destruction if he can get away with it, and he lacks a moral code.

Will Dwight go back to who he was before he re-joined the Saviors and began killing humans? If he does, his alignment will surely shift. But for now, Dwight is Neutral Evil. He’s just a bad guy, willing to do bad things at any time, for either side. The side he chooses may benefit, because the survivors are on the brink of all-out war with the saviors, and it won’t be pretty.

What do you think? Are these alignments accurate? Do you trust Dwight? Let us know @getfandom on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.

This Walking Dead Fan Favorite Could Come Back for the FTWD Crossover

Life is looking up for fans of The Walking Dead universe. Not only is Season 8 rapidly approaching, but producers also recently confirmed there will be a crossover with AMC’s prequel series, Fear the Walking Dead. And now? Well, if the rumors are true, a beloved TWD fan favorite may be coming back to life.

More: A Walking Dead & Fear the Walking Dead Crossover Is Happening

Don’t worry — we’re not talking about reanimating in the walker way. Rather, rumor has it that the character who will be featured on the FTWD crossover will be none other than one of TWD‘s dearly departed stars. Of course, that doesn’t exactly narrow it down. Fans of the franchise have lost many favorite characters over the years.

So who could be getting their second coming? Get ready for the return of the best one-liners on TV, because it looks like we may be seeing Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) in the near future.

More: Did a Walking Dead Star Just Spoil the Season 8 Premiere?

Naturally, AMC and TWD‘s showrunners are keeping any substantial information about the crossover close to the vest. At New York ComicCon, creator Robert Kirkman did offer a hint, though, saying, “There is one character that is going to go from one show, that I will not name, to another show, that I will not name. Now, what does that mean? Because the timelines, like… how does that work? Are we going to see an interesting backstory of The Walking Dead character in Fear the Walking Dead? Or are we going to see a Fear the Walking Dead character show up in The Walking Dead and show a future version of the character?”

The former, apparently — here’s what we know.

Right after that ComicCon panel, Cudlitz tweeted, “Crazy shit is about to go down. See y’all on the other side.” Coincidence? Possibly. But, I mean, c’mon. See y’all on the other side?!

‘The Walking Dead’ Character Catch-Up Ahead of Season 8

We’ve already looked at where Season 7 of The Walking Dead left off here, focusing on both the key and most discussed characters from last season, and how they played into the season’s narrative. But what of the rest? Here’s our character catch-up to remind you where the other major players are and what we last saw them doing before Season 8 kicks off.

Michonne

Michonne saw out the season in a bad state in the infirmary at Alexandria. Thankfully, though, everybody’s favourite katana-wielding badass is alive to fight another day.

How’d she get in this predicament though? If you remember, she was involved in a fight with a turncoat Scavenger on her balcony post as Rick’s carefully laid plan went awry. As Michonne handed Farron a rifle after briefing her, the Scavenger turned the gun on Michonne, telling her: “We win.”

They fought, with Michonne seeming to come off worse, brutally beaten by her opponent. Farron pushed her towards the edge of the balcony.

Rick and Carl, seeing a body plummet, thought the worst — but on investigating they discovered Farron’s body, not Michonne. Finding a battered Michonne inside, they transferred her to the infirmary. Rick was seen holding her hand.

Carol


The Walking Dead-Carol-Morgan
Carol and Morgan have a deep understanding.

Carol spent much of the season in self-imposed exile from the group, holing up on the outskirts of Ezekiel’s camp. But in a tearful reunion with Daryl, she came to realise she needs them as much as they need her.

Carol’s season ended in the final episode when she joined Morgan and the Kingdom to fight the Saviors alongside Rick and co. And she arrived in timely fashion, pitching up just as it appeared that Negan had the upper hand. About to kill Carl, in jumped Shiva the tiger to maul one of Negan’s men, in turn frightening the bejeesus out of the barbed baseball-bat swinging bad guy.

Following the battle, Carol was seen at Sasha’s funeral, then sitting next to Morgan on the steps of a house. The pair looked at one another, seemingly putting any previous differences behind them.

Finally, she was present as Maggie, Rick and Ezekiel addressed the united communities.

Tara


The Walking Dead Tara
Natania holds a gun to Tara’s head, while Cyndie looks on.

Tara signed off from Season 7 after having discovered a new community – the Oceansiders – that proved crucial to Rick’s plans to attack the Saviors. Though leader Natania refused to allow her people to join the fight, she did give up their weapons so that Rick and his allies were fully tooled up. During the season, Tara also forged a relationship with Cyndie from the Oceanside community. It’s a friendship that may yet give more next season.

Tara was last seen in the season finale. We first saw her confronting Dwight, who had been locked in a cell in Alexandria. Dwight, of course, killed Tara’s girlfriend Denise. She urged Daryl to kill him, but he refrained because of Dwight’s protests that Denise wasn’t the intended target, and because he seemed ready to double-cross Negan.

The climactic shootout with the Saviors saw Rosita getting shot. Tara took on the responsibility of transferring her to the infirmary, where she was later seen sitting by her bedside. She was present at Sasha’s funeral and was last seen at the address to the communities by Rick, Ezekiel and Maggie.

Carl

Carl was targeted once again by Negan in the season finale. The charming brute threatened to kill him, and then Shiva showed up and threw a spanner in the works. This followed the savage season opener, in which Negan tried to make Rick chop his own son’s arm off. Carl must be getting pretty peeved by now.

Season 7 has in part been about developing Carl’s character, and in the final episode, he showed his mettle. He took the initiative and led the attack against the Saviors and Scavengers during the affray when zombie Sasha emerged from the coffin.

After seeing a body fall from the balcony at which Michonne was posted, he accompanied Rick, prepared for the worst, only to see the Scavenger’s body on the ground. They found Michonne inside, badly beaten.

Enid


The Walking Dead-Carl-Enid
Young love.

Enid spent much of Season 7 with Maggie at the Hilltop, after a touching journey there with Carl involving the two wearing roller skates. They shared a kiss then Carl took off to hunt down Negan.

She joined the fight at Alexandria against the Saviors and Scavengers as part of the Hilltop faction, and then joined the hunt for zombie Sasha after the fighting had dissipated. She then attended Sasha’s funeral.

Morgan


the-walking-dead-episode-713-morgan-james-gun-1200x707
Morgan is basically a badass.

Morgan has had an eventful season. In it, he has saved Carol and introduced her to Ezekiel and the Kingdom. Having come to the realisation that sometimes you have to kill, relinquishing his pacifist ideals, he also strangled Richard to death in Season 7.

After initially vowing to go after the Saviors alone, Morgan allowed Ezekiel to convince him to fight together in the season finale. He joined the fight alongside the Kingdom regiment at just the right moment, saving Carl’s life. During the battle, he used both a gun and his sharpened staff.

Before seeing him at the speech uniting the communities that closed the episode, he was seen sitting alone on the steps of a house. Carol joined him – both seemingly now at peace with each other.

Father Gabriel

Gabriel was intrinsic to Season 7, solidifying his relationship with Rick and proving himself a vital member of the group. He’s come a long way from the scaredy-cat priest who betrayed his flock. He’s now fighting with the best of them, and playing Negan to boot, leading their ruthless enemy to believe — quick as a flash — that Maggie is dead early on in the season. He also told Spencer he was a “tremendous s–t”, which was surely one of his finest moments.

After having been captured by the Scavengers, Gabriel was critical to negotiations with Jadis and her group. And after the betrayal, he joined the battle in Alexandria.

We last saw him running Sasha’s funeral service, and then listening to the speech uniting the communities.

Ezekiel


The Walking Dead-Ezekiel
We’ve learned a lot about Ezekiel, but is there more to come?

We’ve learned a lot about Ezekiel in a short space of time. He’s only been in the show for a season, but already he’s established himself as an important ally to Rick and the gang. He’s forged tight bonds with both Carol and Morgan, and we already know some of his background — he used to be a zookeeper. Hence his friendship with Shiva, a tiger he nursed back to health.

Ezekiel and Shiva were crucial in the fight against the Saviors and Scavengers at Alexandria in the season finale. They arrived, with Carol and Morgan and the rest of the Kingdom people, at just the right moment. As Negan readied himself to execute Carl, Shiva leapt in and took them all by surprise as she began mauling enemies. Ezekiel fought alongside Carol until their foes fled.

Finally, he delivered a speech to the communities united at Alexandria alongside Rick and Maggie.

Jadis


The-Walking-Dead-Jadis-Junkyard
Jadis betrays Rick’s trust in Season 7.

Jadis came into Season 7 of The Walking Dead an unlikeable character; a tough negotiator who threw Rick into a fight arena with a spiked walker. She left the season even more detestable.

Having struck a deal off-camera with Negan and the Saviors, the leader of the Scavengers earned Rick’s trust only to betray him.

She also revealed she has her sights set on Rick romantically – something that made Michonne bristle.

After turning her gun on Rick and shooting him in the season finale, she pushed Rick off the platform they were both standing on. She coldly delivered Rick to Negan, making him kneel down beside Carl who Negan was gearing up to kill. Negan reneged on his deal with Jadis here – offering her ten of his men instead of their agreed twelve. Could this be the first sign that Jadis might switch allegiance next season?

Last seen escaping amid the haze from the smoke bombs she and her people set off.

Sherry

Dwight’s wife Sherry made an intriguing departure mid-way through Season 7. After freeing Daryl from the Sanctuary, she too fled.

Negan ordered Dwight to go and find her but instead, he found a note from her containing her confession to setting Daryl free, an apology and their wedding rings.

The incident led to Dwight approaching Rick’s contingent, telling them he was sorry for everything. Now that Sherry is no longer in Negan’s clutches, Dwight has nothing keeping him tied to his side.

Sherry hasn’t been seen since Episode 11, and could well return in Season 8.

Rosita


the-walking-dead-episode-714-rosita-serratos-fence-1200x707
Rosita is in a bad way, but she’s recovering.

Season 7 saw Rosita team up with love rival Sasha to avenge Abraham’s death at the hands of Negan, and also to free Eugene. Their mission resulted in Sasha being captured.

She was also responsible for Eugene’s capture. She urged him to make the bullet she uses against Negan after he kills Spencer. Olivia lost her life because Rosita insisted it was she who made the bullet. After this, Eugene confessed and Negan took him, seeing his usefulness.

Rosita was shot during the finale showdown, and was last seen recovering in the infirmary with Tara at her side.

Gregory


THe Walking Dead-Gregory
Xander Berkeley as Gregory in The Walking Dead Season 7, Episode 8 | Photo: Gene Page/AMC

Gregory was last seen in the penultimate episode of Season 7. After considering killing Maggie when her back was turned, he attempted to kill a walker but chickened out. When a second walker came at him, Maggie saved him, telling a watching group of Hillside residents it was his first time. This wasn’t what Gregory had led them to believe.

The previous episode saw him telling Negan’s right-hand man Simon that he might need Negan’s help at some point to quell insurgents. Simon gave him a note that will gain him access to the Sanctuary if he needs it.

Following the Maggie incident, Gregory took Simon’s note from his top pocket, then called for Hilltop guard Kal, telling him to pack a bag and prepare to drive him somewhere. This will doubtless have repercussions in Season 8.

The Walking Dead Season 8 premieres in the US on October 22 and a day later in the UK.

Walking the Alpe-Adria Trail

ADVERTISEMENT

Let’s be honest, we all love a good walk. But many people love walking so much that their summer (or winter) vacation consists of taking a hefty hike through the mountains, through forests, and through designated routes and trails that have been marked out for hardcore walkers. There are so many famous hikes across the world, including the Inca Trail, the Grand Canyon Rim-to-Rim hike, the Appalachian Trail, the Torres del Paine trail and more. But if you’re looking for something extra special, the Alpe-Adria Trail is truly breathtaking.

The trail

The Alpa-Adria Trail is a relatively new addition to the worldwide trail routes list – but has already stolen the record for the longest hiking route in Europe (what more could you want?) The 750 km trail takes you from the bottom of Austria’s highest mountain, the Grossglockner, through Slovenia, until you reach the Adriatic Coast in Italy. The trail will take you around 37 days to complete, although there is the option to take a smaller, circular route which will take you just 7 days. But where’s the fun in that? Hiking experts suggest that you divide the trail into daily targets, and cover 20 km a day. This gives you the chance to really pace yourself and see what the trail has to offer – because the views really are something else. If you’re looking to tackle the Alpe-Adria Trail, there are certain landmarks that you just have to take in. So here’s a few of them:

Pasterze Glacier – Austria

I mean, can you really say you’ve walked the Alpe-Adria Trail if you don’t see at least one glacier? The Pasterze Glacier is perhaps one of the most impressive. This glacier is officially the longest-running glacier within the Eastern Alps and is truly a sight to behold. The Alpe-Adria Trail takes you above and alongside the impressive glacier – and considering it’s so long, you won’t lose sight of it too quickly! A definite photo-opportunity.

Soca Trail – Slovenia

There’s no denying that Slovenia is one of the most beautiful places on Earth – and is definitely worth stopping to see what it has to offer. Luckily, the Soca Trail within the Alpe-Adria Trail takes you through some of the most breathtaking areas of the Slovenian mountains. You’ll pass rocky crevices, ancient towns, crystal clear rivers, dense forests and more. It’s the perfect mix of nature and civilization – to give you a true insight into the Slovenian way of life.

Brda region – Slovenia

Of course, there’s so much more to explore in Slovenia. The Brda region is like walking into the south of France. With rolling hills of green grape trees, vines, and steeples churches, this region is a lot quieter than the rest of the country. Many hikers often choose to stop off here for the night and partake in a little wine tasting to top off the evening. The best place to do this? In an old castle, of course!

Trieste-Hrpelje Narrow Gauge Railway – Italy

No, you don’t need to cheat and hop on a train, don’t worry. The Alpe-Adria Trail takes its walkers alongside the old railway tracks. You’ll be able to follow the tracks, walk inside the tunnels, check out the beautiful houses in the town of Bottazzo, follow the flowing water to the water mills and truly take in the incredible Val Rosandra landscape. If you fancy a little detour, you can even take a break and grab a taxi to the seaside. The incredible harbor towns at this stage are full to the brim with fishing boats, quaint little restaurants and homely bed and breakfasts’ to lay your head.

Are you looking to embark on your next walking adventure? Why not try out the Alpe-Adria Trail?

Which Original ‘Walking Dead’ Characters Are Still Alive?

Staying alive on The Walking Dead is tricky.

Aside from the flesh-eating walkers, there’s limited food and resources, and other humans fighting for the little that’s left. Even if you’re strong (like Abraham) or resourceful (Glenn), you may not survive.

Season 7 saw the deaths of series regulars Sasha, Abraham, and of course, the aforementioned Glenn. His death at the hands of Negan was particularly hard because he was one of the original cast members. He was also the moral center of the survivors, refusing to kill (until he was forced to during the raid on the Saviors) and risking his life to save others.

Of the original cast members (which we define as principal or supporting roles from Season 1), only five remain. So who’s still alive as the zombie drama heads into Season 8?

Rick Grimes

As the protagonist of the series, it’s hard to imagine the showrunners killing off Rick. But it’s happened on other shows before (ahem, Game of Thrones). Rick’s survived being shot (thrice!), stabbed, and beaten to a pulp countless times. Rick takes a licking and keeps on ticking.

In the comics, Rick loses a hand (ala Jaime Lannister) to The Governor. Negan nearly took Carl’s hand in the Season 7 premiere — will he take Rick’s limb if not his life?

Carl Grimes

Rick’s son Carl (Chandler Riggs) was mere inches away from having Negan bash his head in during the Season 7 finale. Thankfully, Shiva (a goddamned tiger!) and Ezekiel’s Hilltop fighters intervened. Carl is reckless and impetuous, which can sometimes land him in trouble (like that time he tried to take out Negan solo). The one thing Carl has going for him is that Negan really likes him, which could save him.

Daryl Dixon

If Daryl dies, we riot.

That’s been the mantra for Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) fans. A skilled archer and tracker with an aversion to sleeves, Daryl has survived the most harrowing of near-death situations. Viewers still haven’t gotten over the death of Glenn; if Daryl dies, it might be The Walking Dead’s jump the shark moment.

Carol Peletier

Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) has gone from meek and battered housewife to strong and assertive leader. She’s also more than capable on her own, having left the group multiple times only to return in times of need. Carol may have looser morals — she’s known to kill without remorse to ensure her survival — which makes her a survivor. One thing’s for sure — if Carol goes down, she’ll go down fighting.

Morgan James

Morgan (Lennie James) appeared in the first episode of The Walking Dead and didn’t reappear until the third season, finally joining the survivors in Season 5. Now that he is willing to take a human life, Morgan has become a huge threat to the Saviors, and when you’re a threat, you’re a target.

Will all of the original cast make it?

Catch the season premiere of The Walking Dead on October 22 in the U.S. and October 23 in the U.K.

You don’t need to visit a place to fall in love with it. As a small boy, growing up on the edge of London, I was captivated by the romance of the Highlands. The wild beauty of the glens and mountains offered a thrilling alternative to the tidy world of suburbia. That the Nicholsons had Scottish ancestors, and that I was half-Scottish by blood, persuaded me into the belief that I had a deep connection to the mountains. I toyed with the possibility that some colossal mistake had occurred: I should have been living in Scotland.

A walking tour of Bath: the ultimate spa break

With its imposing Georgian architecture, regal connections and the ‘healing’ waters of its Roman Baths, it’s easy to see why the city inspired Jane Austen

More UK city walks

What a difference a queen makes. It was the royal visits by Anne in the opening years of the 18th century that turned this sublimely placed town from relative backwater to fashionable Georgian gem and set in train its graduation to Unesco world heritage site. Look at the plentiful shopfronts on a bright, reflective day and you are staring the local industry in the face. It is you, curious visitor. Take heart; there are elegant, honey-stoned reasons for the place being such a centre of tourism and they declare themselves the moment you start this 2½-mile walk from the Bath Spa railway station.

Gorgeous Georgia: walking in the Svaneti’s mountains

New flights from the UK have opened up the country’s unspoilt north west, an area of mighty peaks, flower meadows and fantastic hiking country
