The Start Of All Out War

Fans didn’t really need any  incentive to watch the second half of season 7. But with such a huge prize on the line they will definitely be watching. Season 7B starts off the march to all out war. Rick and the survivors will be gearing up to take on Negan and the Saviors to win their freedom or die trying.

Negan’s oppressive rule has impacted all of the surviving communities but they may not all want to join Rick’s fight. Some of the communities have managed to escape the wrath of Negan so far. But Alexandria is directly in Negan’s crosshairs and will remain there. Rick and the survivors are the only ones that have directly challenged Negan’s rule. And he’s not going to allow that to continue.

When season 7 continues with episode 9 “Rock In The Road” Rick, Michonne, Carl and the others will begin getting ready for the biggest challenge they’ve ever faced. Will they be able to win against such a large and powerful force? Only one group will be standing when the war is over. Hopefully it will be the survivors.

For a chance to win the AMC Play Dead Sweepstakes be sure to tune in to The Walking Dead midseason premiere on Sunday, February 12th.
