Walking Dead Season 7, Episode 5 Preview Video Returns to the Hilltop
The Saviors return to the Hilltop Colony and uncover a big secret in a new preview for next week's episode of The Walking Dead, entitled Go Getters, airing Sunday, November 20 at 9 PM ET on AMC. We also have a clip from next week's episode, which features Carl (Chandler Riggs) and Michonne (Danai Gurira), along with new photos from Go Getters and last night's episode, Service. If that wasn't enough, we also have the most talked about scene from Service and eight new photos as well.
The preview, which comes courtesy of AMC, brings us back to the Hilltop Colony for the first time this season, where the Saviors learn that the Hilltop leader Gregory (Xander Berkeley) is actually alive and well. You may recall that, late in Season 6, the Hilltop members were tasked with killing Gregory, and bringing his head to them. Instead, Rick cut off the head of a walker and made it look like Gregory, before Rick and his group slaughtered a number of Saviors. This video shows the Savior named Simon (Stephen Ogg) telling Gregory that they need to talk.
Given Negan's proclivity to punish those who don't follow his rules, it remains to be seen what will happen when Negan finds out that Gregory is still alive. It's possible that Simon may just kill Gregory himself, since he is already thought to be dead, but even if Gregory survives, it's clear that Gregory has had enough of Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his group, stating that all Rick and his group have done is put the Hilltop at risk. We also see confirmation that Maggie (Lauren Cohan) is actually alive and well, after Father Gabriel Stokes (Seth Gilliam) tricked Negan into thinking she was dead, by digging a fresh grave for her, while Carl tells Enid (Katelyn Nacon) that he's done saving her, as we see her climb over the Alexandria wall once again.
The new clip shows Michonne packing a bag, telling Carl she needs to figure some things out, when asked why she didn't go with Rick. It's never said where Rick actually went to, but it's possible that that he went to the Hilltop, perhaps after the Saviors found out that Gregory was still alive. It's clear that Carl is at odds with his father on an unknown issue, perhaps regarding whether or not to fight back against the Saviors, but whatever it is, Michonne needs some time to think things through.
We also have last night's most talked about scene, which features Rick telling Michonne that they have to give Negan the rifle she had in the bag. This rifle wasn't part of the official inventory, and Rick could have easily kept it hidden from the group, but he decided to turn it over to Negan because he didn't want to lose anyone else. It's clear that he is still distraught over losing Glenn (Steven Yeun) and Abraham (Michael Cudlitz). Take a look at these new videos and photos, as we start the countdown towards this week's episode of The Walking Dead.
