At long last, the fragmented approach to The Walking Dead Season 7 is giving way to an actual story, if only in time for this weekend’s midseason finale “Hearts Still Beating.” We’ve seen one clip, but a second look finally brings us back to Carol and Morgan, while yet another sees Aaron and Rick undertaking a risky voyage.
Even as The Walking Dead keeps Carl alive as a symbol of hope for the future, it stands to reason Chandler Riggs will eventually leave the series behind. That prospect got more immediate with word Riggs would soon be attending college, for which the Walking Dead star says of the balancing act “It wouldn’t be easy but I think that could be possible.”
‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7 wants to “Sing Me a Song” of Negan’s bizarre fascination with Carl, but is Season 7 anywhere closer to finally fighting back? Or at least calling out Spencer for his whining? Find out in our full review!
You’d be forgiven to question who, if any of The Walking Dead’s main cast is in danger of dying these days, but certainly Andrew Lincoln’s Rick and Chandler Riggs’ Carl have been largely protected. That said, recent rumblings have questioned Riggs’ future with the series, for which co-star Tom Payne asserts “I think Carl is the guy at the end on the last page.”
‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7 finally delivers on its “Swear” to return Heath and Tara, but does the addition of yet another mysterious new community bring us anywhere closer to a central story? Or at least tell Tara of poor Denise? Find out in our full review!
‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7 has “Go Getters” looking to fetch a more compelling arc, but does a long-awaited return trip to the Hilltop at least keep things moving? And what became of poor Maggie’s medical troubles? Find out in our full review!
The Walking Dead isn’t known for elaborate fan-sleuthing (save a dumpster-dive or two), thought it seemed impossibly coincidental that placement of a Morse Code chart and an unusual Rick-Daryl interaction weren’t intentional this past week. Well, sorry to burst your Reddit bubble, but showrunner Scott Gimple says it might just have been a sunny day.
Four episodes into The Walking Dead Season 7, and little has happened beyond Negan inflicting the worst of horrors on even those who survived the deadly premiere. Things may get worse before they get better, as the full set of titles and synopses through midseason tease that Negan won’t stay away from Alexandria for long.
We live in an age of fan-theories, where Westworld twists might be unlocked on Reddit after one episode, though as The Walking Dead proved with #DumpsterGate last year, it isn’t always worth the wait. Some clever fans have observed at least one background detail that might put this past Sunday’s “Service” into perspective, however, and tease Rick’s plan to strike back.
‘The Walking Dead’ makes Season 7 too real performing “Service” to Negan’s victory, but does the first trip to Alexandria spark a sense of rebellion, or languish in grief? And will anyone tell poor Tara about Denise? Find out in our full review!
