The Walking Dead Season 8 Preview

Andrew Lincoln was taken when he was told about the spectacle, which seemed to reveal a grizzled and old version of Rick Grimes. The scene, which also included a cane positioned alongside Rick's bed, appeared to mirror a significant moment in the comic book and should don't wish to know about it, then you should probably look away at the moment. And yes, this sounds like your spoiler alert.

But that occurs after the war with Negan, a war which only kicked off on TV at the season 7 finale. So to do this time leap now like the war is beginning, would not appear to make sense.
Only time — and season 8, which premieres Oct. 22 — will tell if the TV adaptation is moving ahead with some type of flash-forward approach to show current and future events in exactly the exact same time — like the Lost flash-forwards that started in the "Through the Looking Glass" episode.

Ah, but what do you need to say on the issue? What do you believe the Old Man Rick scene signifies?
