The latest trailer for AMC’s The Walking Dead brings us right back into the action. Both sides have taken casualties, but the hardest battles lie ahead.

The band of survivors might have put a dent in Negan’s stronghold, The Sanctuary, but with Alexandria in ruins, and The Kingdom’s strongest dead, the sides have had equal hardship.

The February 25 mid-season premiere will mark the final goodbye to Carl (Chandler Riggs), who was revealed to be bitten in the mid-season finale. There was some controversy regarding Riggs’ departure, and the young actor was called out for a tweet that seemed to dis the show’s writers. While riffing on his brief appearance in the trailer, Riggs slipped in what seems to be a jibe,

In the comic book, Carl is a major player despite being much younger than his on-screen counterpart, making his hardships more shocking and in turn, more entertaining. Riggs has grown into a competent fighter, but the fact that he is pretty much a man makes that transformation expected. Additionally, there is a chance Carl dying will save another character.

Showrunner Scott M. Gimple spoke about Carl’s death to The Hollywood Reporter, assuring fans that it is for the greater good and that the decision did not have anything to do with the actor, as rumor suggests,

I can’t get into it too much because it really has to do with the story. That kind of says it all. It’s all having to do with the greater story of the season. It will be very apparent, the relationship of this awful incident — this very intense story turn — to the greater story. I don’t even need to answer because I know as you’re watching it into the next half of the season that you’ll get it. It has everything to do with what happens throughout the rest of season eight.

It has nothing to do with real life in any way. All the real-life things were of no concern. In fact, that’s the only thing that made it difficult — a real-life relationship with Chandler, how much we love to work with him and how talented he is. The story went in that direction. If people watch the whole season, they will see how incredibly critical it is to the telling of the story.

The battle continues on AMC February 25th.
