After the events of The Walking Dead Season 7 premiere, there's no doubt that the survivors find themselves in a larger world where they aren't on the top of the food chain. But as the photos for next week's episode tease, The Saviors aren't the only ones living beyond the walls of Alexandria and the Hilltop...

The Walking Dead Episode 702 – "The Well " synopsis: "Following a number of familiar faces, we are introduced to a new well-established community that seems too good to be true."

Titled "The Well," The Walking Dead Episode 702 airs on Sunday, October 30th at 9:00pm ET on AMC.

"Up until this point, the survivors have lived through conflicts... Disease, hunger, scores of the undead, tragedy, betrayal, and unthinkable loss. Through this, they've become formidable. Powerful. Unstoppable.

To start Season 7, that power is taken away. They had found safety and stability. They had created a home. They thought the world was theirs. They thought they knew the world. They were wrong.

The first half of Season 7 sees the group fractured, broken, bereaved, and picking up the pieces while living under the thumb of oppression. Negan will have successfully brought the survivors under his control, brutally convincing them to live under his rules with a deadly and horrific example of what happens if they don’t.

Other characters are unaware of what’s happened, but have become separated from the group either by incident or choice -- they will learn that they can’t escape this new turn of their world, either. This half season is about these characters starting over.

The overall theme of the season is beginning again. The world isn’t what they thought it was. It’s bigger and it’s even more dangerous."

Keep an eye out for multiple interviews with the cast and creators of The Walking Dead to discuss the season 7 premiere, and in case you missed it, check out a clip from the next episode, as well as behind-the-scenes videos and photos from the season 7 premiere episode, which is now available to watch online for free in the US.
