Season 7 of the post-apocalyptic drama deals with the aftermath of the previous season's ending: Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) kills two beloved characters and breaks Rick (Andrew Lincoln) spiritually and Daryl (Norman Reedus) physically. Ultimately, the group of survivors can't do anything else but agree to work for Negan and his Saviors. Meanwhile, Morgan (Lennie James) and Carol (Melissa McBride) find themselves in the Kingdom, a community run by King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) that seems safe and welcoming. At Alexandria, people try to live their lives as always, though Negan's barbaric rule worries everybody. Elsewhere, Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) go to the Hilltop to recover from the ordeal and to check on Maggie's pregnancy. The rest of the season is all about the three communities coming together and taking on Negan's army in an all-out war.
