On the eighth episode, "Hearts Still Beating" - written by Matt Negrete and Channing Powell and directed by Michael E. Satrazemis - with members out scavenging for supplies, Negan's unwelcome visit to Alexandria continues. With tensions high, things quickly spin out of control. A marathon of the first seven episodes of season seven will air Sunday, December 11th beginning at 12:47 p.m. ET/PT leading into the mid-season finale.
The first half of season seven sees the group fractured, broken, bereaved, and picking up the pieces while living under the thumb of oppression.
