This Sunday night will feature the mid-season finale of season 7 of The Walking Dead and AMC has released a brand new trailer for the upcoming episode which showcases a beard-less Negan with blood on his face and a horrified Rick Grimes. Check out the trailer below!
In the last episode we saw Negan arriving at Alexandria with Carl and waiting for Rick while holding Judith, a situation we can’t imagine Rick will be too happy with. We know that Rosita has a bullet, made for her by Eugene, and a gun and there’s one particular bat wielding antagonist that she’s waiting for. The trailer ends with Rick having the same horrified look on his face that he had after Abraham was beaten in the season premiere, could Rosita’s attempt to kill Negan go horribly wrong leading to another death? This is all speculation for now but we’ll find out on Sunday!
We also saw a quick glimpse of Jesus on top of of the truck that Negan left his compound on but another look at the top of the truck showed that Jesus had vanished and actor Tom Payne has given us some hints about where he went…
“Well, he’s not on the truck. He can’t be many places because there aren’t that many places to go. I think if you noticed, you saw that Daryl noticed that he was up there. We did actually have a shot, but we didn’t get around to it. We saw each other, so he’s seen that Daryl is there and maybe wants to try and help out. We’ll see.”
In the final shot of Daryl in his cell, a note was slipped under the door with the words ‘go now’ written on it and a motorcycle key attached. Was that Jesus? Payne comments…
“Well, that’s a maybe,” Payne said. “I wish he could’ve done that, as well.”
If the mid-season finale takes place primarily at Alexandria then we may not get to see any more of Jesus until the mid-season premiere next year but hopefully we’ll see a successful escape attempt from Daryl on Sunday!
