AMC has now released three promotional photos and a synopsis that sheds light on what will be coming in the final 8 episodes of The Walking Dead Season 7.
When we left off in Season 7A, a large portion of the group reunited at Hilltop with the intention of finding a way to take Negan down... once and for all.
With the Saviors being such a big, complex group, all of our favorite characters are going to to need to keep their wits about them if they have any hope at surviving.
If you watch The Walking Dead online, then you probably knew that the show was gearing up for a war against the saviors and the official synopsis teases just that. Here's the official scoop.
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.
It sure sounds like we're in for a wild ride as we close out the season, but can we really get to the end without any more of our favorite characters dying?
Either way, we'll be along for the ride.
The Walking Dead returns Sunday, February 12, on AMC.
