Is "The Walking Dead" also a time-travel show, with flash-forwards and sideways like "Lost"?
Season 8 premiered last night, and fans seemed happy with the start of All Out War, but confused about the multiple timelines. There was the timeline right after the Season 7 finale, with all the speeches; then a jump forward several years to Old Man Rick and what looked like a maybe 5-year-old Judith (with Michonne looking pretty much the same). In the middle was weepy-eyed Rick, in whatever timeline that was.
Timeline answers will come later, but fans really wanted to know what's up with Judith and Maggie. Maggie has been pregnant with Glenn's child since the end of Season 6, but she is still not showing. Meanwhile, Judith just showed up in the current -- not even the years-later -- timeframe looking older than we last saw her. (See top photo.) She appears to be a real toddler now, not just Baby Judith.Fans were confused, and shared their confusion in the best way possible -- through hilarious memes on Twitter:

How is Judith looking years older but Maggie's bump is non existent? #TheWalkingDead

OK, calm down, everybody. We don't need to exaggerate *quite* that much.
Time will tell when it comes to Maggie's pregnancy, but since she still looks pretty much the same as when Glenn was alive, we have to imagine it has only been a month or so for her since his death. Right? No? Eh.
TWD Season 8 continues Sundays at 9 p.m. on AMC.
