The Walking Dead S11E08 Preview Images; The Reapers' Ultimate Weapon

For those of you still catching up, we'll keep the wording for our preview for the "Part 1" finale of AMC's The Walking Dead Season 11. But what you need to know about "For Blood" is that the final war between our heroes and the Reapers as Pope (Ritchie Coster) suspects Maggie's (Lauren Cohan) the one behind the waves of walker hordes. Meanwhile, Alexandria tries to survive in the midst of a raging storm, a downed wall, and a walker attack. All of that and more are on display in the following preview images, followed by an episode overview and a sneak preview where Daryl (Norman Reedus) learns that the Reapers have their own weapon of mass destruction:

The Walking Dead Season 11 Episode 8 "For Blood": The Reapers defend Meridian from an incoming herd; Pope suspects Maggie is behind the attack, while Daryl treads carefully; Alexandrians scramble to protect themselves when a violent storm leaves them vulnerable to walkers. Directed by Sharat Raju and written by Erik Mountain.

Here's a look back at the epic first trailer for the return of The Walking Dead that was released during Comic-Con@Home (make sure to stay through to the very end)- and if you think the Reapers look like a different and very dangerous group? That's because they are…

AMC also released four mini-teasers for the long-running series' final run, with "Survivor", "Outnumbered", "Guarded", and "Threatened" offering a greater sense of just how different our heroes' world is about to become:

Previously on "The Walking Dead," our survivors confronted past demons and combated new threats, with friendships and relationships suffering from the mounting collateral damage that is the apocalypse. Alexandria is severely compromised, left a former shell of the home it once was from the carnage and devastation left behind by the Whisperers.

Now all who live in Alexandria struggle to refortify it and feed its increasing number of residents, which include the survivors from the fall of the Kingdom and the burning of Hilltop; along with Maggie and her new group, the Wardens. Alexandria has more people than it can manage to feed and protect. Their situation is dire as tensions heat up over past events and self-preservation rises to the surface within the ravaged walls.

They must secure more food while they attempt to restore Alexandria before it collapses like countless other communities they have come across throughout the years. But where and how? More haggard and hungrier than ever before, they must dig deeper to find the effort and strength to safeguard the lives of their children, even if it means losing their own. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to those at Alexandria, Eugene, Ezekiel, Yumiko, and Princess are still being held captive by mysterious soldiers who are members of a larger and unforthcoming group.
