Rick and the gang weren’t doing so hot when we last left them on the midseason finale of “The Walking Dead.” While Alexandria was finally coming around to the idea of mounting a rebellion against Negan and the Saviors, it was clear that they’d all have their work cut out for them.
In advance of the hit show’s return next month, AMC has released a preview synopsis for what to expect in the coming episodes, along with a handful of teaser images to whet your appetites. And then there’s the phrase “all-out war,” which mirrors that of the Image Comics series’ massive storyline of the same name that ran from Issues #115-126, pitting Rick’s crew, the Kingdom and more against Negan’s army of Saviors.
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.
Starring Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, Danai Gurira as Michonne, Tom Payne as Paul ‘Jesus’ Rovia, Chandler Riggs as Carl Grimes, Sonequa Martin-Green as Sasha Williams, Lauren Cohan as Maggie Greene, Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon and Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan, “The Walking Dead” shambles back to television February 12 at 9PM ET/PT on AMC.
