The second half of season 7 of ‘The Walking Dead’ is only weeks away (thank God). When the hit series returns Rick and the group will be making their case to both Hilltop and The Kingdom for why they should all band together and rise up against Negan and his Saviors.
Images and teasers are already beginning to find their way to fans including a new image that teases new characters and a new location. We have already filled you in about one new group that the gang will be meeting, but we have no idea if that’s who the image is of. Take a look. Rick clearly has that posture that he gets when he’s feeling like a badass, you can almost imagine him saying, “You looking at me? Well are you, punk?”. The good news is Rick and Daryl are back together and they’re pissed.
Synopsis for 7B:
The first half of Season 7 saw Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the group broken by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), forced to fall under his will and brutally convinced to live under his rules. The second half of the season will focus on preparing for war and gathering the supplies and numbers to take Negan down once and for all.
Rick’s group will find out yet again that the world isn’t what they thought it was. It’s much bigger than anything they’ve seen so far. While they have a singular purpose – to defeat Negan – it won’t come easy. More importantly, victory will require more than Alexandria. They need the numbers of the Kingdom and the Hilltop, but, similar to how Rick felt, Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Gregory (Xander Berkeley) do not want bloodshed. To convince them otherwise will take more than speeches. The lengths Rick and the group will have to go to in order to find weapons, food and new fighters is nothing short of remarkable.
We’ll meet new survivors in incredible places. We’ll see Rick and the group tested in ways we’ve never seen before. We’ll see treachery from people we trust. Rick is confident as he will see his group and many others band together with the common goal of taking down Negan. But no amount of planning will prepare the group for all-out war with Negan and his army.
We’ll fill you in when we know more. ‘The Walking Dead’ will return on Sunday, February 12th. Don’t miss it!
