What happened? Who died? How can we make it three more months?
The answer, of course, is that there’s no answer. No one knows. We’ll just have to wait.
AMC has released the first-look photos for Season 7, and, of course, none of the 11 characters who were kneeling before Negan when Season 6 ended appear in any of them, leaving the mystery as …well, a mystery.
What do the images show us, then? Well, some familiar characters making a return, as well as some new faces that could, conceivably, get us excited for the new season. That is, if we could think about anything other than who’s going to die.
And we can’t.
(Okay, fine, maybe we can take a moment or two to rejoice about Carol. But just a moment. And then we’ll return to our previously scheduled worrying)
You probably can’t either. But here are the pictures anyway. Just in case you’re better than us at compartmentalizing. In the meantime, we’ll be here counting the days till the premiere and mentally calculating the odds of our favorite making it out alive.
Because that’s what The Walking Dead has reduced us to. And, as much as we complain, we wouldn’t have it any other way.
The Walking Dead returns October 2016 on AMC.
