SPOILER WARNING: The following article contains potential spoilers for "The Walking Dead" Season 7.
As the seventh season of “The Walking Dead” goes on, fans are still trying to figure out just how the Negan storyline will play out, especially after having just seen him arrive in Alexandria for the first time.
With fifth episode of the show airing this Sunday, Nov. 20, AMC has released the synopses for episodes 6, 7 and 8, and they all tease some major moments to come.
Episode 6 is titled “Swear”, and the brief synopsis reads:
"Someone stumbles upon a brand new society, and this society is unlike anything seen before."
A fairly cryptic description, but not one that doesn’t have it’s rumors. According to rumors, this episode will follow Tara and Heath as they continue their supply run from Season 6 until they eventually find some new characters on a beachside environment, aka Oceanside. While there is some basis for this in the comic, it doesn’t seem like the show is there yet. This could also be a tease that Rick will finally make his way to the Kingdom, although the Tara/Heath rumor feels more plausible.
Episode 7, titled “Sing Me A Song”, is almost a dead giveaway for fans of the comics. The synopsis is as follows:
"A deeper look at the Sanctuary and the world of the Saviors; members of Alexandria look for supplies."
For those unfamiliar with the comics, there's a moment when Carl sneaks into the Sanctuary to kill some of the Saviors. Of course, Negan captures him and they have a moment together, complete with Negan taking Carl’s eye patch off and forcing Carl to sing a song for him. It’s a fairly iconic moment in the comics, and it seems like we’ll be getting that moment on the TV series as well.
Episode 8 is called “Hearts Still Beating”, and the synopsis gives us a tease at some crazy moments:
"Negan’s unwelcome visit to Alexandria continues as other members scavenge for supplies; things quickly spin out of control."
Things will unravel fairly quickly in Alexandria, as the show once again appears to be looking to the comic. Specifically, the issue where Negan shows up in Alexandria and speaks to someone who isn’t too fond of Rick. Negan, with his twisted sense of honor and justice, doesn’t appreciate the underhandedness, and, well, some gory things follow. Judging by past midseason finales, it's likely the show is gearing up to end the first half of the season with a bang, and bloody violence at the hands of Negan certainly hits that bill.
Airing Sundays at 9 pm ET/PT on AMC, "The Walking Dead" stars Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, Chandler Riggs as Carl Grimes, Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon, Melissa McBride as Carol Peleteir, Steven Yeun as Glenn Rhee, Lauren Cohan as Maggie Green, Danai Gurira as Michonne and more.
