At least Carl didn't die in vain.

In Sunday night's finale to The Walking Dead season 8, the All-Out War between the survivors and The Saviors came to end.

As Negan had planned, Rick's group massacred the decoy Saviors at a road block that had been on Dwight's fake map, but Negan had planted another map on one of the doomed Saviors. After Negan bashed in the skull of her husband with Lucille at the beginning of season 7, she has wanted Negan dead more than anyone else.

This week on the Season 8 finale of The Walking Dead, everyone freaked out for a few minutes when it looked like Rick killed Negan.

As the episode opened, Negan held all the cards, having duped Rick & Co. with fake battle plans that made them think they had the drop on the Saviors. But that change of heart might have had as much to do with Morgan's vision of dead Savior Jared, who told Morgan he couldn't kill his way out of things, as anything Jesus said.

Rick, Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) fell for it, eventually finding themselves surrounded by Negan's forces.

Right after the group spots an enormous herd of walkers in the distance, they hear whistling in a field. All their guns exploded in their hands, courtesy of defective ammunition designed by Eugene (Josh McDermitt), who had secretly switched allegiances again.

After cruelly slashing the throat of a Savior who was trying to surrender, Morgan took some advice from Jesus and started merely knocking out his foes instead of killing them.

In the battle with Negan, Rick calls for a truce and gets Negan to drop his guard. But, a swift kick, a tearful invocation of Carl's philosophy of peace and a precision dagger swipe to the throat felled Negan.

In his dying appeal to his dad, Carl asked Rick to do some soul-searching, and find his way back to a more hopeful place. Gaping neck wounds tend to be of the lethal variety, especially on The Walking Dead, but Rick had a second surprise in store: He ordered Siddiq to save Negan, who was still clinging to life.

Negan has been the show's biggest villain since his introduction in the Season 6 finale (and his Saviours before him), and while the cartoonish nature of the character hasn't always worked (despite Morgan's commitment to the part), he's been so full-on as a bad guy, right down to his last moments, that a death was more than earned. We finally got some closure: the Rick/Negan war is over; Eugene finally showed his true colours, and, yep, I think everyone is sorta done with the show now.

The remainder of the episode played out in mostly peaceful terms. Maggie makes it clear that Alden and the rest of the prisoners will not be fighting alongside them, and they will stay at the Hilltop.

A serene Carol (Melissa McBride), realizing the value of community, returned to the Kingdom.

The Season 4 premiere episode of Fear the Walking Dead concluded with Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) pretending to be injured in order to capture Morgan (Lennie James), John (Garret Dillahunt), and Al (Maggie Green). Rick looked teary. Even Negan seemed to get misty. But is redemption even possible for a character like TV's Negan?

The Walking Dead will return for season 9 in the 2018-2019 TV season on AMC. Pamela seems stern, but she's also compassionate.

Throughout season eight, lots of people said lots of things. He says Dwight is there to watch, and Gabriel is there to die too. Daryl emerged from the shadows saying, "Yeah".
