After an explosive first half that dealt with the fallout of Negan’s actions, The Walking Dead’s 7th season is set to return with even more chaos, discourse, and zombie action. With the airdate rapidly approaching, AMC revealed the title of season 7’s 9th episode, “Rock In The Road.” and the official synopsis is, “Rick is introduced to a new community.”
Earlier this month, the synopsis for the rest of the season was revealed by AMC and in it, it was teased that Rick would meet a new band of survivors. Perhaps the title of the episode references the name of the community? Rick is expected to take a trip to the Kingdom to meet King Ezekiel and Shiva once the show returns. While we await the return of the award-winning show, take a look at the upcoming season’s full synopsis below.
Rick’s group will find out yet again that the world isn’t what they thought it was. It’s much bigger than anything they’ve seen so far. While they have a singular purpose – to defeat Negan – it won’t come easy. More importantly, victory will require more than Alexandria. They need the numbers of the Kingdom and the Hilltop, but, similar to how Rick felt, Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Gregory (Xander Berkeley) do not want bloodshed. To convince them otherwise will take more than speeches. The lengths Rick and the group will have to go to in order to find weapons, food and new fighters is nothing short of remarkable.We’ll meet new survivors in incredible places. We’ll see Rick and the group tested in ways we’ve never seen before. We’ll see treachery from people we trust. Rick is confident as he will see his group and many others band together with the common goal of taking down Negan. But no amount of planning will prepare the group for all-out war with Negan and his army.
The Walking Dead will return on February 12th at 9 p.m ET on AMC.
