In all likelihood, it probably is a a false swerve, but then I think about where can the book go?
They've restarted civilization, they can handles the walkers (even steer herds away from the towns), they're productive and secure. The only real threat left is their fellow man and do that again so soon after the Negan war just doesn't make sense. The walkers have practically been delegated to bit players. So what's left?
How about thinking walkers that communicate between themselves? It just adds a whole new dynamic and gives the series new life.
I'm kind of hoping it's not a swerve.
