After months of waiting, AMC finally aired the The Walking Dead Season 7 premiere last night, which revealed Negan's (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) victim from the Season 6 finale cliffhanger. As fans recover from this epic episode, the network has released a brief preview for the second Season 7 episode, The Well, airing Sunday, October 30 at 9 PM ET on AMC. This preview features two characters we didn't see much of last night, Morgan (Lennie James) and Carol (Melissa McBride). If you haven't seen last night's premiere, there will be SPOILERS below, so read on at your own risk.
Morgan and Carol weren't among the 11 members of Rick's group that were lined up by Negan in the Season 6 premiere, with these two running into two men on horseback, believed to hail from The Kingdom. The plot details for next week's episode hint that both Morgan and Carol will discover The Kingdom, and this trailer from AMC gives us our first true look inside this compound. Unfortunately, we don't get a glimpse at King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) yet, but this clip shows how hesitant Morgan is to tell Carol too much about King Ezekiel, stating that he "does his own thing."
Our report from last week also revealed that, surprisingly, The Well will be 10 minutes longer than last night's premiere, clocking in at 76 minutes. Aside from our first look at The Kingdom and King Ezekiel, it remains unclear what else this episode will delve into, but it will most certainly address the shocking events of last night's premiere. We learned last night that not one but two members of Rick's group were savagely beaten to death by Negan, Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz) and Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun).
There had already been hints that there would be multiple victims killed by Negan in the premiere, with the episode delivering a twist from the comics, while remaining faithful to them at the same time. In the comics, Abraham Ford was killed a few issues before Negan's introduction, with Abraham being swapped for Dr. Denise Cloyd (Merrit Wever) in the series. In the comics, Negan only kills one person, Glenn Rhee, but in the series, after Negan kills Abraham, Daryl (Norman Reedus) tries to attack Negan, which is not successful, but leads to Negan taking the life of another member of Rick's crew, Glenn.
In addition to this preview, we also have new photos from last night's premiere, and next week's episode The Well, which offers a new look at King Ezekiel and Morgan. The photos from last night's episode also include a shot from the "Sunday dinner" scene, where all of the characters have gathered together for a dinner that plays out in Rick's head. We also have new videos that go behind-the-scenes of this epic episode, plus a look ahead at what's to come in Season 7. Take a look at these photos and the preview for next week's episode of The Walking Dead.
