You know The Walking Dead is cooking something up when its promos become especially vague and the only photos that are offered in advance of its airing are two close-up shots of a third-tier character. But in an effort to give fans something to discuss and speculate upon, the series did drop one particularly intriguing shot of some surprisingly well-fed zombies shambling down a road. As is life on the internet, there has been plenty of guesswork being tossed around as to who or what these zombies are.
Questions about the image have suggested that Tara and Heath will be crossing paths with the Whisperers, meaning the dangerous group will have made an appearance long before they did in the comic books. That’s in keeping with what has been said recently about the group and the series’ plans to introduce them. But as it turns out, there’s another new group of survivors the show is interested in introducing.
There will no doubt be plenty from the episode that you’ll want to share before the others have had a chance to see it, so feel free to do that here. Comments and discussions made here are posted under the assumption that everyone reading has already seen The Walking Dead season 7, episode 6, ‘Swear.’ That means it’s going to be full-on spoiler central. If you haven’t yet seen the episode, this might not be the place you want to hang out.
For an in-depth look at episode, be sure to read our review, which will be up soon. Feel free to discuss all aspects of ‘Swear’ right here.
The Walking Dead continues next Sunday with ‘Sing Me a Song’ @9pm on AMC.
