The Walking Dead season 8 certainly kicked off with a bang. There were explosions a-plenty in the season premiere, a few interesting teases, and more zombies than you can shake Morgan’s stick at. Of course, this left the internet doing what it does best: ranting and raving. Did they enjoy it? And what did they make of that Rick scene? Read on to find out… Spoilers for The Walking Dead season 8 premiere
There’s only one place we can start. Old. Man. Rick. Oh, and Weird Al for some reason.
Old Man Rick

What if these “old man rick” sequences are just what he wants his heaven to be like & this is foreshadowing of his death 🤔🤔 #TheWalkingDead23 October 2017

I’m just as confused as you are why “Another One Rides the Bus” was featured in #TheWalkingDead season premiere, but I’m extremely honored! pic.twitter.com/CzCqcQOiie23 October 2017
If seeing Old Man Rick listen to Weird Al wasn’t enough elder abuse for you, the leader of the Hilltop, Gregory, also got thrown down some stairs – and proved what a coward he was.
Run, Gregory, run

WHY DID FATHER GABRIEL TRY TO HELP DICK HEAD GREGORY WOW #TheWalkingDead23 October 2017
Oh, and now Gabriel is with Negan. Praying might not be enough… If only Rick was a better shot.
Our father, who art with Negan

There was even time for a big death. That’s right, one of the original cast members has gone to the great parking lot in the sky.
RIP the RV.... thanks for being there since S1 🙏🏼 #TheWalkingDead #AllOutWar23 October 2017
In fact, there was so much going on that it left people a bit befuddled. Not least of all why Rick took a photo of Negan, and where he got that camera from.
WHAT IS GOING ON
I guess I don’t understand military strategy. Cause I don’t know WTF just happened for the last hour. #TheWalkingDead23 October 2017
The real question is where tf did rick get the Polaroid camera from? #TheWalkingDead23 October 2017
Is anybody else wondering what the hell is going on??? #TheWalkingDead23 October 2017
But, don’t worry, there was some d’aww moments to keep us all warm and fuzzy inside. And that was just Tara eating Twizzlers.
The gang is back
Tara, this is a red vines family, spit out that twizzler. #twd #ParksAndRec23 October 2017
#TWD I want Daryl and Carol to be together so bad but I'd be lying if I said I didn't want her and King Ezekiel to get it on #TheWalkingDead23 October 2017
We got our once a season Carol/Daryl hug tho #TheWalkingDead pic.twitter.com/4NEqahihV323 October 2017
Not only did Old Man Rick hint at a time jump (or something else entirely), Judith is now a little bit older, and Maggie still isn’t showing signs of her baby bump. Time is a flat circle. Or something.
Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
How is Judith a teenager and Glenn’s sperm hasn’t even reached Maggie’s egg yet? #thewalkingdead #twd #Demdeadz pic.twitter.com/oXefKG9qEa23 October 2017
But what was the internet’s overall opinion of the episode?
The Walking Dead season 8 premiere: yay or nay?
#TheWalkingDead is back, and the premiere was MIND-BLOWING... really. What a way to start another great season! #TWD100Nite pic.twitter.com/Wr0MV2o4kW23 October 2017
100 episodes in, I have 0 idea why anyone watches The Walking Dead. What a depressing, boring, miserable, no good, bad show. Don't @ me.23 October 2017
in true Walking Dead fashion the season premiere had a million problems and was an utter mess but was still a damn fun hour of television23 October 2017
Basically, a lot of questions, and a whole lot of memes. No memes here, but there are 9 questions we have after watching The Walking Dead season 8 premiere.
