We have months to wait until The Walking Dead returns to our screens, but at least we have a team up between Alexandria, the Hilltop Community and the Kingdom to look forward to, as teased in the Season 7B trailer
The Walking Dead's mid-season finale was a bit lackluster if we're being honest. Yeah there was a couple of deaths, but we were never really invested in Spencer and Olivia (whose name we only recently learned) anyway. However Episode 8 set things up for the highly anticipated team up of the different communities to take down Negan. Each episode in Season 7 jumped around from one community to the other, but Alexandria, the Hilltop, the Kingdom and the Sanctuary each played a part in the mid-season finale. We're happy to see that Rick has finally had enough of Negan's antics and is ready to fight back against the Saviors. And he's not alone; it was revealed that Ezekiel's right-hand man Richard also wants to take down the Saviors, as do Sasha and Maggie at the Hilltop Community. Another silver lining is that Darly escaped from the Sanctuary (yayyy!), although he brutally murdered Fat Joey in doing so.
The Walking Dead Season 7 won't be back until February, but when it returns viewers can expect to see a new fire lit under Rick and the gang's ass. We're not sure how Rick will come into contact with the Kingdom, perhaps Morgan will share with Rick that Richard also wants to take down the Saviors. But the Season 7B promo begins with Rick speaking to King Ezekiel at the Kingdom. He declares, "Alexandria, Hilltop, the Kingdom. Our communities have something in common; we all serve the Saviors."
We see a lot of action shots of the survivors on a mission to get out from under Negan's thumb. Rick goes on, "We already started this, and we're gonna win. Whatever it takes." But we all know that Negan and the Saviors are a force to be reckoned with and then there's also the problem of all those pesky walkers always getting in the way. Luckily Richard is on the same page as Rick and adds, "Together we can beat them. We set things right, the time is now." The trailer ends with Rick appealing to Ezekiel to join them in fighting. Do you think Ezekiel will join in?
