With ‘The Walking Dead’s’ mid-season premiere on days away, AMC has released a new sneak Peek titled ‘Roadblock’.
The mid-season premiere picks up with Rick and the group on a mission to find allies for a fight against Negan and his Saviors. The residents of Alexandria, Hilltop, and and The Kingdom are fed up with living in fear of Negan and his cruel men. They are ready to “rise up”.
“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.”
In the new clip, Rick and the group run into a “Roadblock”, but that won’t stop their mission. ‘The Walking Dead’ will return on Sunday, February 12th on AMC.
