The Walking Dead Season 7: Episode 1 sneak peek teases no mercy for "the ones that are left"

Rick could lose Daryl
Written by

The Walking Dead Season 7 premieres this month and AMC isn't about to let us forget that this is going to be one of the toughest opening episodes in history of television, as a recent sneak peek teases danger for the remaining survivors...

The Walking Dead Season 7 premieres on October 23, and our emotions at this stage are a mix of numbing dread and eagerness to finally get the answer to the question we've been asking ourselves for six months: Who does Negan kill? Prepare yourself, as even special effects master, director and executive producer Greg Nicotero revealed that the premiere will be the most emotional episode we've seen yet. We've now got a taste of what's to come thanks to a sneak peek of the premiere recently released by AMC called 'Right Hand Man'. The clip is taken from the first few moments after Negan has killed at least one survivor with his weapon Lucille, and humours Rick by listening to his death threats. That is until Negan drags Rick by the collar into the RV for a proper talking to. Despite Rick staring into the face of death, he still doesn't seem to understand that Negan is the leader now.

Despite this sneak peek from The Walking Dead Season 7 showing Rick and Negan's first conversation (if you want to call it that, we're not sure Rick even knows where he is at this point). This is not the most important part of the clip, as when the camera pans out we see the bloody remains of Negan's victim, and a piece of material that worryingly looks like the one Daryl had around his neck in the Season 6 finale. Although, we have our suspicions that he won't be the one looking at the wrong end of Lucille in the Season 7 premiere, since a recent teaser hinted that Daryl may be in need of an escape from Dwight's torture, rather than burial arrangements. Either way, the cries from the survivors who are left in the line up signal the end to The Walking Dead as we know it, and the beginning of Negan's reign of terror. What did you make of this sneak peek?
