When Greg Nicotero directs an episode of The Walking Dead, fans should pay close attention. And when it is a midseason finale, it amplifies the sentiment.
The Walking Dead has given fans over 100 episodes now that the popular AMC zombie survival drama is nearly a third of the way through season 8 and some episodes still stand out as being even more amazing than others.
Of course, some of the most powerful episodes are the midseason and season premieres and finales. AMC has brought fans to their knees and even elicited tears of joy from some of these key episodes in the series.
The season 8 premiere, the season 7 finale, the season 7 midseason finale, the season 7 premiere, are just some examples of the 22 episodes that were directed by special effects guru and executive producer Greg Nicotero through episode 804, and soon another big episode will be added to the resume.

On December 10, 2017, the season 8 midseason finale will air on AMC titled ‘How It’s Gotta Be’. This installment in the story will also be directed by Greg Nicotero, which should put fans on full alert about it possibly being a devastating and series-altering episode.
Even more big news that was previously announced involves the run time of episode 808. TheWalkingDead.com shares the news that it will have a runtime of 88 minutes, which means approximately 66 minutes of content for fans to watch.
Of course, this episode will feature more fallout and events from Alexandria, The Hilltop, and The Kingdom fighting against Negan and The Saviors in All-Out War and could be a major turning point in the war.
Everything is adding up to a huge midseason finale for The Walking Dead in season 8. A longer run time and Greg Nicotero at the helm is just the icing on the cake for what should be a powerful episode that fans won’t want to miss!
