The seventh season of AMC’s The Walking Dead continues this Sunday with its fifth episode, “Go Getters,” which will keep the action in Alexandria while Rick and co. try to figure out the best way to deal with The Saviors. To whet our appetite for what comes after though, the network has released synopses for the following three installments, and piecing together these tidbits with what we know goes down in the comics may just signpost some pretty major spoilers.
Episode 6 is titled “Swear,” and in it “someone stumbles upon a brand new society, and this society is unlike anything seen before.” The only characters that are currently on the road are Tara and Heath (remember them?), so chances are they’ll be the ones that find this new society, which many fans believe will turn out to be the Oceanside community.
Next, we have “Sing Me A Song.” This is almost certainly a reference to Negan forcing Carl to belt him out a tune after the young Grimes lad stows away to the Saviors’ compound and guns down several of ’em. The synopsis makes no mention of this, however, and reads as follows: “A deeper look at the Sanctuary and the world of the Saviors; members of Alexandria look for supplies.”
Finally, there’s “Hearts Still Beating,” in which “Negan’s unwelcome visit to Alexandria continues as other members scavenge for supplies; things quickly spin out of control.” Again, no reference is made in the synopsis but there’s a very good chance that this episode will see the end of Spencer, who does something to piss Negan off in the comics and winds up with his guts all over the pavement.
There’s no guarantee that all or even any of this will happen of course, as The Walking Dead does stray from its source material sometimes, but I’d say that most of it’s a pretty safe bet.
