(opens in new tab) returns to AMC in just a few short days, and it sounds like there might finally be a sliver of hope for Rick and the rest of his group. We know the back half of the season is (opens in new tab) against Negan and the Saviors, and now AMC brings us the episode titles and synopses for the entire rest of the season, and it sounds like the stars are aligning for a violent confrontation. (Is there any other kind on this show?) Let’s take a look at the new info, but keep in mind, there could be spoilers ahead:
Episode 9: Rock in the Road. “Rick is introduced to a new community.”
Episode 10: New Best Friends. “While searching for a missing Alexandrian, Rick and his group encounter a mysterious collective, its inhabitants unlike any they have come across."
Episode 11: Hostiles and Calamities. "An Alexandrian discovers they must navigate the mysterious, confusing, and terrifying world within the Saviors' compound."
Episode 12: Say Yes. "The group scavenges for supplies; back in Alexandria, someone must make a morally challenging decision."
Episode 13: Bury Me Here. "Things do not go as planned when a group of Kingdommers delivers goods to the Saviors during a routine supply drop-off."
The synopsis for episode 12 pretty much sums up the series as a whole, doesn’t it? “Someone must make a morally challenging decision.” That’s what this entire show is built on, and it’s what keeps people coming back even after their favorite characters’ skulls are brutally bashed in with barbed wire baseball bats. Sounds like the group is about to team up with some much-needed allies, and they’ll need some serious help if they’re going to bring down Negan and his boys.
The Walking Dead season 7 returns to AMC on Sunday, February 12 in the US and on Monday, February 13 in the UK.
