The trailer for the final episode of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) in The Walking Dead has the return of Shane Walsh (Jon Bernthal), among other things. Lincoln's imminent departure has been threatened by the show since its ninth season began. Instead of moving away from the inevitable, AMC has treated every episode of season 9 so far as part of a countdown to Rick's big outing. Jeffrey Dean Morgan (who plays Negan) has indicated that The Walking Dead it will essentially restart after Rick is gone, but for now, the focus is on the final exit of the former sheriff's leader turned leader.
Tonight's episode ended with Rick in very bad condition, after his scared horse threw him to an exposed metal bar. With no one around and a herd of walkers nearby, it seems that this will be the end of the character. However, as evidenced by the new trailer for Rick's final episode, there are still many things to overcome before he officially says goodbye. The Walking Dead.

AMC has released a trailer for next week's episode (titled "What Comes After") that focuses mainly on Rick, while trying to survive with a gash in his stomach. Written by Matthew Negrete and Scott Gimple (directed by Greg Nicotero), the episode seems to change between reality and Rick's visions, visions that bring together Rick (and, by extension, show fans) with characters like Shane , among other things. You can see the trailer below.
According to the trailer, it's safe to say that Rick's current location will not be his final resting place. It is assumed that someone will come to save him and get him proper medical attention, as shown by the shots in Rick's trailer attached to a breathing machine. AMC developed the trailer so it is not entirely clear what the shots of Rick's hallucinations are and what is happening in real life, although, no doubt, the photo of Rick sharing a meal with the deceased Shane in a Patrol car is definitely unreal. The question is, what inspires that specific vision?
Who will come to rescue Rick is another fiery mystery. The trailer shows Michonne (Danai Gurira) assuring Rick that they do not die, suggesting that she is the one who finds him. However, given how The Walking Dead Setting up Rick's impending departure would make much more sense than Maggie (Lauren Cohan) save him. Both Michonne and Darryl (Norman Reedus) have had their own separate moments with Rick during this season; Maggie is the only one who has not yet shared a meaningful scene with him. This is especially important, given the unresolved tension between the two since Rick decided to keep Negan's life at the end of season 8. Give the couple time to at least come to an understanding after what happened with Negan would conclude Rick's story in a satisfactory way. It could also, ultimately, change Maggie's opinion about wanting to kill Negan, once she's had an honest conversation with Rick.
