The countdown to The Walking Dead season 8 midseason premiere has begun and now fans have a synopsis to build excitement about the show’s return.

AMC released the official synopsis for the second half of season 8 of The Walking Dead, and the February 25th midseason premiere can’t come fast enough.

The upside of the midseason finale was that all of the various stories were brought to the fore by the time the episode ended. The downside, of course, is that Carl is going to die and there’s no avoiding that. The synopsis gives fans a sense of what to expect coming out of the the hiatus, and there’s no question that 8B is going to be intense.

Take a look at the official synopsis from AMC:

"All out war has had a devastating impact on every person involved. The communities themselves are fractured. Alexandria has been destroyed, the Hilltop finds themselves pinned, and the Kingdom is shattered — half of them dead, the other half controlled by the Saviors.At the very center — Rick, having been distracted by the conflict, has just returned home to learn that Carl, who heroically shepherded the Alexandrians to safety during Negan’s attack, has been bitten by a walker. Once his sole motivation in this otherwise stark existence, Rick is forced to deal with this reality. Carl has always been a beacon of hope, a symbol for the remaining thread of humanity — lessons that the survivors around him would be wise to take with them as this war surges onward.But Rick isn’t the only person who’s living in peril. Aaron and Enid are in a dire situation at Oceanside — unclear if they’re in friendly territory, or if they’ve just made new enemies. Father Gabriel will do his part in attempting to smuggle Dr. Carson safely back to the Hilltop and a pregnant Maggie is wrestling with the many moral gray areas that come with leadership during war. In a standoff with the Saviors, she must decide how to proceed with the dozens of POW lives she’s currently in control of, as well as new complications that come with being a leader.In addition to the war, Negan continues to deal with struggles within his ranks as workers, traitors, and others’ thirst for power cause conflict at the Sanctuary. Having gifted the Saviors a major victory, Eugene’s loyalty is repeatedly tested as new obstacles present themselves.As all-out-war consumes us, the line between good and evil continues to blur. People fighting for what they believe in. Everybody working together for something bigger — to feel safe and have a world worth living in."

There’s a lot to look forward to in the second half of The Walking Dead’s epic eighth season. Things are much different now than they were coming into the season premiere and no one is safe.
