The next episode of “The Walking Dead” will take viewers back to Alexandria, where Rick and the others are dealing with the aftermath of Negan’s deadly game of “eeny meeny miny moe.” Season 7, episode 4 will also be an extended 90 minutes.
According to TV Guide’s synopsis of next Sunday’s episode of the AMC show, the group is trying to “hold together in Alexandria” but get a “sobering visit.” The synopsis doesn’t reveal who the visitor is, but several promos show that it’s Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). He most likely pops up at Alexandria to collect the supplies he told Rick (Andrew Lincoln) in episode 1 that he wanted them to have ready.
In one promo video, seen above, Negan announces his arrival to Alexandria by banging his barbed-wire bat Lucille on the metal gates. At one point in the clip, Rick is heard telling everyone that he’s no longer in charge and Negan is now the boss. “There is no way out of this,” Rick says.
The trailer also teases that something may go wrong during Negan’s surprise visit at Alexandria. Michonne (Danai Gurira ) is seen holding a rifle and looks ready to shoot someone’s head off. Rick is also seen staring at the ground with a terrified look on his face.
In a sneak-peek video for episode 4, which you can see below, Rosita (Christian Serratos) and Spencer (Austin Nichols) want to go on a scavenging trip but Eugene (Josh McDermitt) doesn’t hear them when they ask him to open the gates. Eugene is busy trying to fix a broken radio. However, it looks like Rosita and Spencer never get to go on their scavenging trip because Negan arrives.
“All I will say is that this is a rocky road. It’s a shocking beginning to a season, but it is the beginning of a season. That’s what people have to remember,” he said. “This is where we begin, after the quake. This season is about rebuilding and about characters dealing with the trauma and grief of this brutal attack, but also this new regime that they are now a part of. And each react in their own individual ways.”
“The Walking Dead” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on AMC.
