A batch of photos shows glimpses of The Walking Dead season 7B

The Walking Dead

We are now just three weeks away from the return of The Walking Dead, with the second half of the show's seventh season scheduled to start airing on AMC on Sunday, February 12th. To help us get through the rest of the agonizing wait between 7A and 7B, Entertainment Weekly has shared a batch of eight pictures which don't give away much, but do give small glimpses of the sights we'll be seeing on The Walking Dead in upcoming months.

Featured in these images are Andrew Lincoln as Rick, Chandler Riggs as Carl, Danai Gurira as Michonne, Norman Reedus as Daryl, Alanna Masterson as Tara, Christian Serratos as Rosita, Ross Marquand as Aaron, Khary Payton as Ezekiel, Jason Douglas as Tobin, Jordan Woods-Robinson as Eric, and Steven Ogg as Simon. We also get a look at one messed up corpse... and finally the one image that might be considered something of a SPOILER.

So before we discuss that image, let's take a look at the 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.

In the final image we have a "mystery character, a mystery group, and a mystery location". Who is this person Rick Grimes is giving such a Rick Grimesy look? Showrunner Scott M. Gimple isn't saying, but he does say that "Rick is going to meet this person and/or persons pretty quickly. The answers are just around the heap. I cannot wait for people to meet this character and to see this actor. There is some formidable fun coming up."

Given the fact that this new group appears to hang out in a junkyard, fans are already referring to them as the Garbage Pail Kids.

I have no idea what these Garbage Pail Kids are up to, but I look forward to finding out when The Walking Dead returns to the airwaves. Executive producer Greg Nicotero has also teased that 7B will feature "one of the most ingenious walkers". "It's something that we've never done before. The minute that you see it, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about."
