The Walking Dead season 8 returned last week with the death of a major character. On Sunday, episode 10, “The Lost and the Plunderers,” continued the story of the survivors – grieving and still at war.
SPOILER ALERT: THIS ARTICLE REVEALS DETAILS OF EPISODE 10 OF SEASON 8 OF THE WALKING DEAD.
Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) found herself and her garbage squad on the wrong end of Simon’s (Steven Ogg) very bad day. The resulting slaughter was Biblical. And the Walkers were many, trapping Jadis — and later Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira), who escaped together and left her to face the swarm on her own since she is a dirty, no good, double-crossing scoundrel and is now no one to them without her numbers.
We later find out that Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) specifically told Simon not to kill every damn person there. This can only go one way, right?
Finally, Rick and Negan closed out the episode with a chat about Carl (Chandler Riggs) that had some suggesting that the episode — at 80% on the Tomatometer with 10 reviews immediately following the airing — is a character-driven highlight of the season.
Here are a few of the best moments from the episode and how fans reacted on social media:
By the end of the episode, all anyone could talk about was that moment: when the dead Garbage Pail Kids horde ambled into Jadis’ auto shredder–escape plan and splashed out of the other end as beef tartare.

Jadis speaking in complete sentences is a bad sign. #TheWalkingDead

Tell me one good reason why Simon left Jadis alive? There is literally nothing good that can come from him killing every single Garbage Pail Kid, yet leave her alive. #TheWalkingDead

: Walking Dead time. Awesome to see Michonne slice and dice some zombies. #TheWalkingDead

Michonne is all “how do we get out of here?” while stuck at the garbage dump. Just climb over the garbage mountain? Lol #TheWalkingDead

Rick and Negan’s walkie-talkie exchange also got some social play. With most grousing that Rick really does need to take Negan’s advice — if nothing else than to move this story forward from the war-and-retaliation rut some think the series is stuck in.
Negan: “Just give up. Give up because you have already lost.”

Tonight’s episode of #TheWalkingDead reminded how much I love this series. Rick and Negan’s interactions are must see tv

Darryl: "He wrote Negan a letter? Negan?!! I've know that little prick for 8 years, what am I not cool enough to get a letter? This is bullshit!" #TheWalkingDead

Aaron and Enid: Just survived Oceanside. Nbd.
But does anyone care?

When we were introduced to Aaron, he was playing the role of recruiter for Alexandria. It makes sense that he stays behind to try and recruit Oceanside now. Don't ask me what kind of wizardry he's going to use on them, though. #TheWalkingDead #TWD #TWDFamily

Many viewers still miss Carl — and aren’t likely to get over it soon. (Remember, Glenn?)
Rick's group raids Oceanside, taking all their guns, kills one of its beloved people. Then still try to bully them into joining their war. Carl's dying speech about making peace to Rick, may honestly be one of the best things to happen on #TheWalkingDead
