Synopsis Teases “Out of Control” Negan in Upcoming Episode of The Walking Dead
< >
Though The Walking Dead ended on a rather gimmicky note last season and has even continued to take advantage of the show's popularity and enormous fan base this season (i.e. wasting a feature-length episode on one utterly predictable visit from Negan), there have been a few upsides, such as the introduction of Ezekiel and the Kingdom. However, AMC just released the synopses for three upcoming episodes of The Walking Dead, and it's possible that things could get even more interesting, as one of them teases an "out of control" visit from Negan.

Opening quote
Episode 7.06 – Swear

Someone stumbles upon a brand new society, and this society is unlike anything seen before.

Episode 7.07 – Sing Me a Song

A deeper look at the Sanctuary and the world of the Saviors; members of Alexandria look for supplies.

Episode 7.08 – Hearts Still Beating

Negan's unwelcome visit to Alexandria continues as other members scavenge for supplies; things quickly spin out of control.
Closing quote

Though Jeffrey Dean Morgan has put on a phenomenal performance as the villainous Negan, the story has been suffering, and it seems as if the show is relying on Morgan's charisma and the character's hype to make up for the subpar narrative. And though the tease of an "out of control" Negan may sound enticing, the show has had more misses than hits lately when it comes to delivering on climactic moments (i.e. the season premiere). However, it is interesting to hear that someone will be stumbling "upon a brand new society" in episode six, hopefully meaning that Ezekiel and the Kingdom could be back in the mix soon. Then again, the vagueness of the synopsis could also make it possible that "Swear" features an entirely new group, which could add a new dimension to the story.

The Walking Dead returns on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
