Take a look at more new images, plus footage and synopsis from "The Walking Dead" mid-season premiere episode "The Last Stand", airing February 25, 2018 on AMC:
"...all out war has had a devastating impact on every person involved. The communities themselves are fractured. 'Alexandria' has been destroyed, the 'Hilltop' finds themselves pinned...
"...and the 'Kingdom' is shattered — half of them dead, the other half controlled by the 'Saviors'.
"At the very center — 'Rick', having been distracted by the conflict, has just returned home to learn that 'Carl', who heroically shepherded the 'Alexandrians' to safety during an attack by 'Negan' has been bitten by a 'walker'.
"Once his sole motivation in this otherwise stark existence, Rick is forced to deal with this reality. Carl has always been a beacon of hope, a symbol for the remaining thread of humanity — lessons that the survivors around him would be wise to take with them as this war surges onward.
"But Rick isn't the only person who's living in peril. 'Aaron' and 'Enid' are in a dire situation at 'Oceanside' — unclear if they’re in friendly territory, or if they’ve just made new enemies. 'Father Gabriel' will do his part in attempting to smuggle 'Dr. Carson' safely back to the Hilltop...
"...and a pregnant 'Maggie' is wrestling with the many moral gray areas that come with leadership during war.
"In a standoff with the Saviors, she must decide how to proceed with the dozens of 'POW' lives she's currently in control of, as well as new complications that come with being a leader.
"In addition to the war, Negan continues to deal with struggles within his ranks as workers, traitors and others’ thirst for power cause conflict at the Sanctuary. Having gifted the Saviors a major victory, the loyalty of 'Eugene' is repeatedly tested as new obstacles present themselves.
"As all-out-war consumes us, the line between good and evil continues to blur. People fighting for what they believe in. Everybody working together for something bigger — to feel safe and have a world worth living in..."
