We’ve two Walking Dead episodes left in 2016, and it looks like next week’s penultimate “Sing Me a Song” might finally break with Season 7's piecemeal approach. Not only will Negan and the Saviors return, but our first clip sees Michonne out on the road, doing her best impression of The Wire.

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7 finally delivers on its “Swear” to return Heath and Tara, but does the addition of yet another mysterious new community bring us anywhere closer to a central story? Or at least tell Tara of poor Denise? Find out in our full review!
It’s no secret that Seasons 6 and 7 of The Walking Dead have proven more divisive than usual, between the buildup to Negan’s arrival, the months-long wait to identify his victim(s), and subsequent brutality. Season 7 hasn’t felt the same since, and according to ratings data, enough viewers have subsequently tuned out to reach a multi-season low.
The Walking Dead finally returned us to the Hilltop with Sunday’s “Go Getters,” in the process mounting one of the more inventive action scenes of zombie carnage in several seasons. The staging itself left more than a few fans scratching their heads by the end, for which star Tom Payne now reveals that several sequences were missing from the final cut.
It’s been a good long while since The Walking Dead fans have seen either Corey Hawkins’ Heath or Alanna Masterson’s Tara, but Season 7 is finally delivering on its initial trailer promise with next week’s “Swear.” See for yourself, as our first clip sees the pair acknowledging just how long they’ve been away.
‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7 has “Go Getters” looking to fetch a more compelling arc, but does a long-awaited return trip to the Hilltop at least keep things moving? And what became of poor Maggie’s medical troubles? Find out in our full review!
The Walking Dead isn’t known for elaborate fan-sleuthing (save a dumpster-dive or two), thought it seemed impossibly coincidental that placement of a Morse Code chart and an unusual Rick-Daryl interaction weren’t intentional this past week. Well, sorry to burst your Reddit bubble, but showrunner Scott Gimple says it might just have been a sunny day.
Four episodes into The Walking Dead Season 7, and little has happened beyond Negan inflicting the worst of horrors on even those who survived the deadly premiere. Things may get worse before they get better, as the full set of titles and synopses through midseason tease that Negan won’t stay away from Alexandria for long.
We live in an age of fan-theories, where Westworld twists might be unlocked on Reddit after one episode, though as The Walking Dead proved with #DumpsterGate last year, it isn’t always worth the wait. Some clever fans have observed at least one background detail that might put this past Sunday’s “Service” into perspective, however, and tease Rick’s plan to strike back.
A good number of Walking Dead favorites played bit parts in this past weekend’s “Service,” but will next week’s “Go Getters” finally catch us up with Negan’s subjects? At the very least, our first clip reveals Michonne and Carl playing major roles, even if they’re not totally in sync.
