Titled ‘Mercy’, season 8 episode 1 will feature some jumps in time as well as fill everyone in on the mysterious ‘old man Rick’ that was teased at the end of the Comic-Con trailer in San Diego this year.
The episode description is not quite as interesting as one would hope it would be, as it gives very little away as to what to expect in ‘Mercy’. Here is the synopsis shared on the website:
"“Rick and his group, along with the Kingdom and Hilltop, have banded together to bring the fight to Negan and the Saviors.”"
This has already happened at the end of season 7, but it isn’t shocking that AMC doesn’t want to give fans too much in the way of spoilers or expectations heading into the big season 8 premiere episode.
