The Walking Dead looks to be wrapping up its midseason with a bang, as episode 8 will be extended in length.
Instead of the usual hour, the episode will be 88 minutes long in the US including adverts.
Taking away commercials, that means the midseason finale will probably be around 65 minutes (compared to the usual length of 42 minutes).
It's unclear at this stage what will happen to justify the added length, as we have only just seen episode 3 of the season. But it seems safe to say that the all-out war between Rick's militia and Negan's Saviors will still be raging on.
Perhaps we will be treated to a cliffhanger or a shock death. (Last season's midseason finale saw Spencer Monroe getting his chest sliced open by Negan, who also captured and took Eugene back to the Sanctuary.)
Episode 3 'Monsters' saw the death of longtime recurring character Eric, after he was shot in the gut.
Actor Jordan Woods-Robinson said that he was happy with how the death turned out, as it managed to focus on his relationship with Aaron (Ross Marquand).
"I was really happy that they were really focusing on the relationship for this... I thought it was just beautiful," he said.
"I was just really happy that their relationship was so important, and in many ways, the relationship is still there."
Eric wasn't the only notable death. Morales's shock return didn't last long, as Daryl remorselessly put an arrow through his head.
The Walking Dead airs Sunday on AMC in the US, with FOX and NOW TV airing the show a day later in the UK.
