Rick and the gang struggled mightily in the first half of The Walking Dead Season 7. The impact of incredible loss and suffering was made more intolerable by the sadistic Negan. However, the group seems ready to fight back. With the help of Ezekiel and his followers in the Kingdom, the folks of Alexandria may stand a chance against Negan’s Saviors. Obviously, it’ll be no easy task. According to the synopsis for the last half of Season 7, a war is on the horizon.
“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 addition to teasing what’s ahead, AMC also released a new set of photos.
The rest of The Walking Dead’s seventh season will certainly be trying and action-packed. The show returns Sunday, February 12 on AMC.
