Whether you loved it or hated it, there's no denying that The Walking Dead Season 7 had viewers somewhat divided. The hit series came under fire last year for many reasons and fans took to social media to voice their concerns, commenting on a wide range of issues, including the controversial storytelling method, the extensive violence, the continuity errors and the questionable CGI. To be fair, that deer was pretty bad.
The eighth season of #TheWalkingDead premiered this Sunday and, as expected, viewers could hardly wait to tell us exactly what they thought about the jaw-dropping episode. Using GIFs and emojis to display their emotions, which ranged from happiness to devastation, fans of the hit #AMC series took to Twitter to let the world know how they felt about the show's return.

After a slow seventh season, fans of #TWD were hoping that Season 8 would pick up the pace and we can confirm that their wish was granted in tonight's episode. The season premiere was full of action and delivered in every way possible, leaving many social media users in shock. Fans could hardly contain their excitement and took to Twitter to express their joy (and their fears) for the all out war storyline. Check out their reactions below:

Being the good Samaritan that he is, Father Gabriel decided to risk his life to save Gregory from flesh-eating zombies. However, Gregory did not return the favor and stole Gabriel's vehicle, leaving the preist stranded in a sea of walkers. Not cool Gregory. As you can imagine, social media users had a lot to say about this. Check out the best reactions below:
