There were a number of callbacks and references to days gone by in "Mercy" that longtime fans can enjoy. Read on for some of the greatest callbacks we caught in the Season 8 premiere!

Carl Searched For Gasoline

One of the most iconic scenes of The Walking Dead to date came way back in the very first episode, when Rick ventured out into the wasteland of the zombie apocalypse in search of some gas. The camera panned over abandoned cars and scattered debris, including a child-sized bicycle. He peered into a car to take a look at a dead body propped up in the driver's seat. When Rick heard footsteps, he dropped down to his belly, took off his hat, and looked underneath a car. In "Mercy," a scene progressed almost exactly the same way, except with Carl as the Grimes in search of gasoline. There was even an abandoned kid's bike. Carl didn't have to shoot a zombie girl in the face, but the scenes were otherwise very similar.
