"The Walking Dead" does have some iconic moments -- Sophia in the barn, Carol going Rambo at Terminus, etc. -- and it sounds like a new scene may join the list early in Season 8.

Tom Payne (Jesus) recently talked to ComicBook.com at Walker Stalker Con in Nashville, saying he did not want to be one of those hype guys ... but he couldn't help it. He got specific, though, beyond saying -- as Ross Marquand (Aaron) recently did -- that Season 8 will trump everything they've done to date. They are only about three episodes into Season 8 right now, and apparently they just shot something pretty "iconic."

Here's more on that, from Tom Payne to ComicBook.com:

"I think the episodes that we're shooting now are some of the best that have ever been shot. There was a sequence that was shot last week that I think is one of the iconic sequences of the show. I'm super excited. It's a sequence that was shot which has never happened before in the show, and I'm really excited to see it myself and for the audiences to see it."

Hopefully he's not over-hyping the "iconic" part, or overstating how it's never been done before. For context, Payne is the guy who warned viewers last year that the Season 7 premiere would be "very tough and pretty graphic and horrible" and "very brutal and a huge downer." He was not wrong.

Unlike Marquand, Payne said he hopes the Season 8 trailer coming at San Diego Comic-Con does NOT top the Season 7 trailer introducing Shiva the tiger, because there's stuff this year -- like the sequence shot last week -- that he doesn't want people to see in advance. Keep your friends close, and your big spoilers closer.

"The Walking Dead" Season 8 premieres October on AMC.
