The Walking Dead Season 7B: First Look Photos!

at . Comments

The official synopsis for The Walking Dead Season 7B and a few photos now exist.

Who's excited?

Looking at them, especially in a group setting, is kind of like playing a game of who will die next. Good times!

In the Mansion - The Walking Dead

Since AMC went to a lot of work to write their synopsis, you're getting it verbatim. Here's the official scoop of what to expect.

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. 

“The Walking Dead” is executive produced by showrunner Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, Dave Alpert and Tom Luse.

Well, guys, it looks like Rick is going to remain kind of hot and sweaty, with that look on his face that sort of combines outright fear and a burning desire to kick someone's ass.

This set of photo seems to remind us that the heart of the show is, and will remain, those we've come to know best. 

There are no photos of Negan, Ezekial nor Gregory, despite their presence weighing heavily in the narrative.

As long as the gang is at their mercy whether by living in their protected compounds or being held as slave labor in return for their very lives, it's impossible to pretend they don't exist just because their photos aren't present.

How many people in the photos above do you think will make it to the final episode of Season 7? 

Do you expect all three of the others guys mentioned, but not included in the photos to make it, as well?

Could Rick's team mount an all-out assault that would mean the demise of Negan?

The seventh season of The Walking Dead returns Sunday, February 12, at 9/8c.
