War is brewing in the world of The Walking Dead, and it's only a matter of time before every character will have to decide whether or not to join the fight against The Saviors. We saw a wide range of characters on the move in the mid-season 7 premiere, and new photos from AMC show that we'll spend some more time in The Kingdom—and take a field trip to Carol's house—in the next episode, "New Best Friends."
The Walking Dead Episode 710 airs on Sunday, February 19th at 9:00pm ET on AMC. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for more updates, check out the new photos below, and in case you missed it, watch preview videos for "New Best Friends."
The Walking Dead Episode 710 – "New Best Friends": "A mysterious community is discovered."
Season 7b synopsis: The first half of Season 7 saw Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the group broken by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), forced to fall under his will and brutally convinced to live under his rules. The second half of the season will focus on preparing for war and gathering the supplies and numbers to take Negan down once and for all.
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” is executive produced by showrunner Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, Dave Alpert and Tom Luse."
