“The Walking Dead” celebrated its long-awaited 100th episode on Sunday… and it was a doozy.
The eighth season of the zombie drama picked up where the seventh left off, with Rick and group’s plan to take down Negan — but what happened afterwards is not so easy to explain.
We saw Alexandria come together with Hilltop and the Kingdom to fight back against the Saviors, but while Rick (who strangely flashed in and out of an older version of himself) insisted “it’s not about me,” his actions seemed to suggest otherwise, when he put Father Gabriel in danger trying to snap of pic of Negan seemingly moments before death. Unfortunately for Rick (and moreso for Gabriel), Negan emerged from the battle alive and well — and ready for retaliation.
While Negan remains alive for the time being, the episode left us with several unanswered questions, like what’s up with old Rick? What happened to Maggie’s baby? And what happens next?
Lucky for you, ET’s Leanne Aguilera caught up with the cast at the AMC series’ 100th episode celebration and season eight premiere at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday night, where they did their best to clarify exactly what went down.
According to Andrew Lincoln, who stars as Rick, the milestone episode is “offering up alternative futures.”
“Basically there is a future that looks to be five years to seven years on, when Judith is grown up,” Lincoln shared, after admitting that he needs to remain somewhat tight-lipped about the meanings and implications of the scenes. “Then there’s another future that seems to be where Rick Grimes is dying. So I wonder what’s gonna happen.”
“The Walking Dead” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.
