The new trailer of “The Walking Dead” season 8-B teases some major events. After the devastation the people of Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) faced last year, it is now the Scavengers' turn to face some tragedies.

The promo posted on YouTube shows Simon (Steven Ogg) meeting with the Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh), leader of the Scavengers, at the junkyard. There is a cost to be paid for going against the Saviors. Simon can be seen pulling a gun, preparing for what appears to be an execution.

The heavy-handed way in which Simon deals with people from other communities, like the Hilltop, will be used at the junkyard. Jadis is expected to accept the abuse and submit to the tyrants.

One of the scenes in the trailer shows Jadis after a devastating loss, sitting alone and crying. Will she finally understand that Rick is fighting for the right cause? So far, the Scavengers have been participating in the war half-heartedly. Will they now join the fight against Negan in all earnestness? Risk everything to decisively defeat the Saviors?

Negan is angry in the trailer. He is angry that Rick and the others escaped after his well-planned attack, and his enemies are out there planning a counterattack. The trailer teases another character death at the hands of Lucille, the barbed-wired bat that the deranged character prefers using to kill his victims.

The big moment in the next episode is expected to be the death of Carl (Chandler Riggs), an important character who was supposed to take Rick’s position as the leader someday. The trailer appears to show Carl’s dying words. The young man wants his father to return to the man he once was and try to focus his efforts on building a better world.
