The Walking Dead season eight is back and it's continuing to bring us all the bloodshed we could have asked for.

Following a shocking casualty in this past weekend's episode, it looks like that isn't the last of the drama as the Saviors plot what their next move will be in the first look trailer for episode five - 'The Big Scary U'.

How good does that look?! NGL, I was starting to get a bit disappointed with the show as the seasons went on, but I feel like they could definitely still bring it around. I'm a huge fan of blood-shed though, so that could just be my personal preference.

Recently, one of the biggest fan theories surrounding Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead has finally been confirmed. For years, fans of the shows were convinced that they were set in the same universe after noticing little similarities between the two.

In a recent Fear The Walking Dead episode, there was a HUGE nod to Breaking Bad. Did you spot it? If you didn't, here it is......

When Madison (played by Kim Dickens) and Qaletaqa (Michael Greyeyes) go into the market, Negro y Azul: The Ballad of Heisenberg is playing in the background. Yup, the same one from season two of Breaking Bad. Starting to click yet?

Speaking to Digital Spy, showrunner Dave Erickson said: "I tried to be subtle with it,

"That was probably the moment when I fell the most deeply in love with Breaking Bad, when they did that cold open music video.

"As we were looking for pieces to incorporate into this world, it had the right vibe to it. It's a gentle nod of admiration and adoration to [Breaking Bad creator] Vince Gilligan."
