As Season 8 begins, Rick and the survivors know bowing down to Negan isn’t an option anymore.
“It’s taken Rick Grimes eight years to come up with a good plan,” says Andrew Lincoln (Rick) in a new behind-the-scenes video detailing the Season 8 Premiere. “Ladies and gentlemen, this one is a goodie.”
His first order of business? Show up at the Sanctuary with an armored caravan — and a horde of walkers — to bring down the Saviors.
Even Negan is proud to see Rick back on his feet.
“When Rick shows up with his chest puffed out, firing that AK-47, I think Negan’s a little amused by it,” says Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Negan). “Don’t get me wrong, He’s pissed off and this isn’t going to end well, but I think I’m a little bit proud of him.”
Though the survivors come out guns blazing, the group knows there’s a bigger picture at stake.
“Their ultimate goal is to bring down Negan, but not die while trying,” says Executive Producer Gale Anne Hurd.
