The brooding days of Rick in the first half of The Walking Dead Season 7 is finally over. With the recently unveiled synopsis and teaser photos, the action that viewers are eagerly anticipating for is finally in our midst.
Gone are the days where Rick lets Negan freely do his will, or so the synopsis for Season 7B says. This time, Rick and the group are “preparing for war” to finally “take Negan down.”
Just like what was promised by Andrew Lincoln, the actor playing Rick, the “thrill to fight” by his character is back again. And according to the synopsis for The Walking Dead Season 7, an “all-out war” is to be anticipated.
In order to stand a chance against Negan and the Saviors, “victory will require more than Alexandria.” This is where the “numbers of the Kingdom and the Hilltop” is needed.
Meanwhile, convincing Ezekiel and Gregory, who both “do not want bloodshed,” is teased by the synopsis to “take more than speeches.” Is it a foreboding of something about to come down for the Hilltop and the Kingdom by Rick’s doing?
Preparation For An Epic Cliffhanger?
Rick and company will also go to great lengths for supplies, weapons, food and “new fighters.” With the latest teaser photo showing Rick, Michonne, Aaron and Tara cautiously traversing across some greens, speculations of a possible visit to the Oceanside are raised.
There are also promises of meeting “new survivors in incredible places.” There will also be a “treachery from people we trust” that was stated in the synopsis. Moreover, Rick and the rest of the gang will be tested like never before.
It only shows that despite the singular goal of taking down the big bad wolf, the road towards their planned anarchy will not be “easy peasy lemon squeezy.” Still, many of them will “band together” while sharing the same objective.
But with the focal point on the “nothing short of remarkable” preparation for war, will that mean The Walking Dead Season 7 will, in fact, focus only on the groundwork? If that happens, it appears fans will once again be left with an epic cliffhanger without an actual war happening – yet.
