With only a few days from ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7 premiere, fans have finally managed to get a hold of the official details about the upcoming episodes.
This week, AMC officially released the titles of the first three episodes of the new installment, which gave rise to various rumors about the storyline.
In a report by Digital Spy, ‘The Walking Dead’ season 7 premiere will be titled “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be.” This points towards an episode in season 1 when Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the survivors cross paths with Dr. Jenner at the CDC.
Jenner initially wanted Rick and his group to kill themselves but then agreed to let them go. In response, Lincoln’s character tells the doctor that he is thankful, but Jenner only responded with: “The day will come when you won’t be.” He then revealed to Rick that the zombie virus has spread and everyone infected will eventually transform into such being at the time of their death.
It seems that such morbid day has fallen on Rick and company as ‘The Walking Dead’ season 7 premiere is expected to be the most “intense and emotional” episode of the show. Moreover, fans get to see Rick’s point of view throughout the seventh installment, showing that the lead character won't exactly be thankful for what has happened to his group of survivors since they walked out of CDC in season 1.
The second episode of ‘The Walking Dead’ season 7 will be titled ‘The Well,’ and the synopsis states: “For a number of familiar faces, a new, well-established community seems too good to be true.”
This has brought ‘The Walking Dead’ fans to speculate that the second episode will feature a first look at the Kingdom and Ezekiel. Carol and Morgan are believed to be held at this community, thus the possibility of their prominent presence throughout this episode.
The third ‘The Walking Dead’ season 7 episode has been titled ‘The Cell,’ and the synopsis states: “A new group of survivors seem to have it all in their impressive community. However, there is a price.”
While the “impressive community” could be referring to Ezekiel’s Kingdom, it could also point towards Negan’s home, the Sanctuary. If the Sanctuary is being referred to in this summary, the cell could be the location where the Saviors’ prisoners are being held.
Despite limited information, fans expect that there will be more than one from Rick’s group of survivors who will be murdered by Negan. Many viewers speculate that Glenn (Steven Yeun) and Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) will be the ones to be killed off in the upcoming episode.
In addition, fans have feared that Rick could lose his right hand; in a ‘The Walking Dead’ season 7 clip, Negan speaks about his right hand man and later asks for the hatchet, pulling Rick into his vehicle afterwards. It has then been questioned whether the series will stick with this comic book storyline or merely tease a twist that is not supposed to happen on the show.
‘The Walking Dead’ season 7 premiere has been set on October 23, Sunday, at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
