Like all Walking Dead fans, I am not sure I am ready for these final eight episodes. On the one hand, let’s find out how this series will end but on the other, definitely not prepared to face the fact that this series will be over in November. I didn’t start watching until mid-season 3, but since then, I have dedicated much of my life to this series. Thankfully we will have numerous spinoffs to keep the fandom going and the careers of so many TWD family actors to follow.
On October 2, 2022, at 9 p.m. ET on AMC, the first of the last eight episodes will premiere on AMC and AMC+, which will also have the second episode of part 3. The story will pick up where it left off in the mid-season finale when Deputy Governor of the Commonwealth Lance Hornsby, brilliantly played by Josh Hamilton, used his power and army of soldiers to take over the communities of Alexandria, Hilltop, and Oceanside. He was last seen flipping his coveted coin to determine the fate of the Oceanside residence.
Hornsby is a formidable villain as he has a trusting face and that used car salesmen vibe that somehow draws people in. But, his true nature is slowly being revealed, and the trailer shows that he makes some type of mistake and is captured. It will be very cool if it is Carol (Melissa McBride) that he is talking to in the scene where he says, “Thank you for coming. I hoped you would. I have a lot to say.”
The final episodes look to rejoin our survivors who have been scattered about in parts 1 and 2 of this season. They will come together for one more fight against the evils of the Commonwealth. Although several of our group’s fates are already known there are still many, we could lose in this battle.
The Walking Dead final episodes
As we count down to October 2, fans are scouring the internet for any new information, save spoilers, that have already started to leak. It’s always great to learn new tidbits that don’t entirely spoil what’s to come.
Here are the newest photos released by AMC for the final episodes.
