Ross Marquand Elaborates On ‘Walking Dead’ S7 Premiere

Fans of AMC’s The Walking Dead have been analyzing the final scene in the season six finale for months but when the seven season premiere arrives, it will feature more than just the conclusion of that epic scene with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Dead cast members.

Ross Marquand, who plays Aaron on The Walking Dead, opened up about what else fans can plan on seeing during the premiere.

“I think it’s the complete emasculation of Rick and you get to see a huge power shift in the group. What you’ll see is that the entire way their society has been structured, the power and the leadership roles, will now be completely thrown on their head. I think people are going to have to adapt to that. People are going to have to look at that world and say, “Is this something that I can truly assimilate into or am I going to have massive issues with this new world that Negan has laid out before us?”

Truthfully Negan has a very simple premise that he’s put in front of these people. He says, “Give me half of your things or I’ll kill you.” For some people in the apocalypse or otherwise, namely Rick’s group and Rick specifically, that’s a hard pill to swallow. The idea of giving half of your things to someone who has not earned it and has earned it only through intimidation and fear and other violence and brutality, that’s going to be something that some people have a difficult time grasping and they’re going to have to decide how they’re going to work in this new society.”

‘The Walking Dead’ will return on Sunday, October 23 at 9/8c on AMC.
