Return to The Walking Dead with Season 7

What to expect in the second half of season 7 of The Walking Dead

Sunday will mark the return of the second most popular TV show of 2016; The Walking Dead, and after a relatively slow first half of season 7, the second half should see the action picking up significantly.

When viewers last seen Rick and the group at Alexandria in the season 7 mid-season finale this past November, they were reuniting with fellow group members at the Hilltop Colony [I still get emotional at that part.]

Upon reuniting with Daryl, Jesus, Maggie and the rest of the group, Rick was also reunited with his beloved revolver, which is significant because it means the Rick Grimes of old, is back and ready for war!

Wait war? Oh yes, after dealing with the Saviors for a while now, Rick and the others have reached their limit and will turn their focus on taking down Negan and his cronies which is where the second half will start.

*possible spoilers*

In the second half of The Walking Dead, Rick and the survivors will be aiming to unite with various groups, two of which include the Hilltop and the Kingdom, in preparation for All Out War with the Saviors.

[All Out War should sound familiar to Walking Dead comic book fans because that’s the name of the Saviors and Survivors conflict/war in issues 115-126.]

While Rick and the group marches toward war with Negan and the Saviors, the Saviors will be in preparation mode as well, especially after they took Eugene, the one who manufactured the bullet that almost killed Negan in the mid-season finale.

The Walking Dead returns at 8 p.m. Sunday on AMC.
