The first half of The Walking Dead is coming to a close and the Episode 8 trailer has us worrying that Negan and Lucille will claim another life. Take a peek at "Hearts Still Beating" below
The world got a whole lot bigger in this season of The Walking Dead, especially now that Jeffrey Dean Morgan's Negan is a key player. Along with excitement over Negan was the Kingdom, King Ezekiel and Shiva's highly-anticipated introduction. Each episode in Season 7 so far has jumped around from the different communities - the Kingdom, the Sanctuary, the Hilltop Community, and of course Alexandria, to progress the story in different ways. We even learned of a hidden community near the sea. What all these communities have in common is that they are under Negan's control, but it looks like the mid-season finale may show the first steps that the Kingdom, the Hilltop Community and Alexandria take to band together and fight back. Check out the trailer for Episode 8 ("Hearts Still Beating") below.
The trailer begins with Rosita staring at the bullet that Eugene made her, but unfortunately for her, Negan and the Saviors are back in Alexandria. Ezekiel's right-hand man Richard is seen saying, "I know what the Saviors are, and I know what they do. They cannot be trusted." To which Morgan replies, "What exactly are you asking?" Richard declares, "If we don't do something now, things will go bad, and when they do we'll lose everything." We then catch a glimpse of a clean shaven Negan sitting at a table with Carl and Olivia who has Judith in her lap. Unsurprisingly, you can cut the tension with a butter knife.
Meanwhile Daryl has managed to escape from his cell and is running through the halls of the Sanctuary. We'll also learn more about what Michonne is up to. The trailer ends with Negan carrying Lucille with a bit of blood splattered on his face. Uh-oh, whose blood is that? Rick is seen behind him and we get a close up of his tear-filled eyes. It looks like someone's going to die in the mid-season finale. Tell us your predictions for Episode 8!
