According to the source, the synopsis for the Eighth Episode of The Walking Dead Season 7 “Hearts Still Beating” reads as “Negan’s unwelcome visit to Alexandria continues as other members scavenge for supplies; things quickly spin out of control.”
Rick is still devastated with the deaths of Glenn and Abraham. He took it to hard to the point that he is blaming himself. He is again on a phase where he can’t control his emotion and acts like a puppet of Negan. Rick has had several chances to kill Negan but chose not to. And maybe this time, Rick might finally summon the courage to do so and kill Negan and take leadership back.
The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 8 will air on December 11, on AMC.
