Instead of a direct preview for the next episode of “The Walking Dead,” AMC has opted to compile an “in the weeks ahead” trailer. The clip consists of footage from the next three episodes, all leading to the mid-season finale. The reluctance to give next week’s outing, titled “Swear,” a specific trailer could mean that viewers are in for some huge reveals when this extended 70-minute episode airs November 27. Watch the preview trailer for Season 7, Episode 6 above.
The next episode will direct its focus on Tara (Alanna Masterson) and Heath (Corey Hawkins), who have not appeared since leaving for a two-week supply run late last season. AMC’s official description of “Swear” (written by David Leslie Johnson and directed by Michael E Satrazemis) states the following: “In this episode, a familiar face stumbles upon a brand new society. Their rules, location, and setup are unlike anything we’ve seen before.”
It’s unclear if the group of people is friend or foe, but Tara is seen hiding from a woman in the woods, with Heath nowhere to be found. Considering Tara closes the clip by bashing someone with a rifle, fans can surmise she gets the upper hand on at least one of her pursuers.
Elsewhere in the preview, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) preaches to his flock while Daryl (Norman Reedus) remains his prisoner. Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Aaron (Ross Marquand) are on a mission outside of Alexandria. There is also a tense moment between Morgan (Lennie James) and a member of The Kingdom regarding the issue of trust.
Has Rick finally decided to search for weapons? Will Carol (Melissa McBride) finally join The Kingdom’s fight against the Saviors? And will Tara and Heath survive their two weeks away from the group? There are only three more episodes to answer our questions before the winter hiatus.
