The Walking Dead First Look: Rick and Maggie Appeal to Gregory to 'Rise Up'

When AMC’s The Walking Dead returns for the second half of Season 7 (Sunday, Feb. 12, 9/8c), Rick, Maggie and a whole lot of other folks will be ready to “rise up” against Negan. But what our heroes are likely to find even more difficult than defeating the formidable Saviors will be convincing the most lily-livered of their potential allies — in other words, Gregory — to march into battle alongside them.

In the above image released exclusively to TVLine, Maggie’s Hilltop visitors — among them, Daryl, Michonne, Carl and Tara — appear to be appealing to that community’s weaselly leader to pledge his join the rebellion. And, as you’d expect, he’s giving them a look that suggests his main concern is — same as it’s always been — protecting his own sorry ass.

What do you think? Shouldn’t Maggie just unseat the coward from his position of power and take over the Hilltop already? Hit the comments with your hopes for Season 7’s second half.

    Hahahaha, Gregory is such a punk!!

  2. Jason says:

    Maggie can’t just unseat Gregory. She’ll need to convince the people of Hilltop to do it themselves. And that’s not going to happen overnight. It may well be the end of the season before that happens.

    • Carla says:

      Jason you are right. Remember she is suppose to be dead. The extra grave at Alexandria. They told Nagen it was her. She died from a broken heart. SO IF mag takes over Hilltop and the Negan crew comes to collect again then what?
      They deal with Gregory the lame. Megs the bold wouldn’t give them their monthly cut. Causing the entire reason for her hiding to be for nothing.

      My though is that Gregory will never around for a while longer. The Alexandria crew will gain support from the other communities. Oceanside will come in play with their weapons.

      The boot person is probably one of the ocean people scouting. POssibly the leaders graddaughter.

      Also. How does Carol and Morgan come into the mix again is they get word of Glens death. Or Judith., remember back she always protected the baby. So when she hears Negan was in the house after killing GLen and Abraham she thinks back to her abusive relationship with her hubby. Thus reigniting her hatred of abusive men. IM betting when it’s time Carol takes out Negan.

      • Mimi says:

        I agree with your theory Carla… I believe the boot person the granddaughter of the oceanside.and i hope carol come to her senses after she finds out what happen

  3. Iris says:

    If Rick, Michonne, Daryl and the gang are the main characters again and ready to fight, my enthusiasm for the show will find its second wind.

  4. Allie says:

    Maggie and Jesus should run hilltop and Daryl should run the Saviors in a different (better) way than Negan did. I’m hoping all the torture-porn is done and we won’t have to watch Negan brutalize people. The deaths of Glen and Abraham we’re beyond what I want to see on TWD. Too much time listening to Negan blab. I want to see Beth come back and I want to see her help Daryl get back to normal (or as normal as Daryl can be) and I’d love to see she and Aaron help Daryl run the Saviors. I want to see Carl grow into the strong young man he can be. I want to see Rick and Michonne continue their relationship and I like the idea of Morgan and Carol together. The only new character I like is Jesus. The rest are yawn-worthy.

    • Ramona says:

      Are you talking about what you wish happened if Beth hadn’t died in Season 5? I kinda feel like the existence of Enid now wouldve made Beth redundant. If Dwight lives I think he’ll lead the Saviors. Not really a shipper but I love Morgan and glad to see them repair that friendship. My fav new character is Ezekiel. I think Daryl and Carol will likely get together by season 8 but not sure where they will settle.

      • Gaara says:

        @Ramona: Nah, in the TWD fandom there are actually some people that keep deluding themselves saying Beth’s death is this big great conspiracy and she survived her gunshot through the skull and she will return in season 5 B / 6 / 7 / 8 (the goalposts never stop moving), and only thanks to her upgraded badass persona she will help defeat the Wolves / the big zombie herd / Negan / the Whisperers (idem), and it will be revealed that she is immune to the zombie virus and her blood holds the cure for humanity, thus becoming the main star character of the show and the network (did I mention that AMC changed their logo to yellow because that’s the color of Beth’s “iconic” polo shirt?). Aaaand, of course, she will have this torrid sexy epic love story with Daryl, because why on earth would Beth come back if not for making their shipper’s dreams come true??

        … Yeah, I wish all this was a joke too.

        • Annie Sisk says:




          Waitwhatnow??

        • Gina says:

          There are also people who keep deluding themselves thinking that Carol and Daryl are going to be together, even though they have said too many times to count that they are not romantic. So let’s not pretend like delusions are exclusive to one fan group

          • Gaara says:

            Somehow we’re living in a reality where shipping a gray haired woman with the hot male of the show (who is 3 years younger than her) is seen as delusional as making up the biggest conspiracy ever around this teen blonde hope that will rise from the dead to save all humanity, relieve Rick of his leadership/main character status and go make babies with Daryl. Things that make you go “mmmhhhm”.

          • Annie Sisk says:

            +1 to Gaara.

      • Gina says:

        Carol and Daryl are not going to get together. They have said 679,323 times that they are not romantic . They have also said that had Beth lived, she and Daryl would have been romantic

        • Lola Peake says:

          which is kind of disturbing consider beth was 17 and daryl is mid-40’s.

        • josh says:

          Actually they said the exact OPPOSITE. Lol they actually emphasized how it didn’t not happen cause she died. That it would never of happened.

          • Gaara says:

            EXCUSE ME, how dare you using logic, basic reading comprehension or fact-checking when it comes to Bethus/Bethyl, you hater. Don’t you know Bethyl is more canon than Romeo and Juliet? (Lol)

        • DarioG says:

          You mean, when Robert Kirkman, the creator and producer of the show said the exact opposite?
          “Daryl loved Beth as much as he loved Sophia. There wasn’t a romantic relationship there, in my opinion. I think that there was a camaraderie, there was a friendship, there was an understanding, but, it’s not like there was this great romance that didn’t happen because she died.”

    • Brigid says:

      Um, Beth died, you can’t come back from a gun shot wound to the head.

  5. Allie says:

    Forgot to add that there are too many communities. I wish the show would focus back on the initial characters and Alexandria only. Now we hace the seaside ladies community and probably additional ones as S7 plays out. Get back to the beginning group. That’s what people watch for (and Daryl of course.)

    • Brigid says:

      How can you get back to the “whatever beginning group means” when you have Negan? They have to have other communities out there so they can band together and kill Negan. I am people and that is NOT why I watch.

  6. Snow says:

    I need more. There is only so much spoilers can do

  7. MelodyAZ says:

    I hope Gregory gets the same end the comic character got

  8. Musty says:

    I think what tick and the gang needs is to find d other community run by d king with d tiger and train those at Alexander also the women community found by *forgot her name* should be involved in d fight since de have ammunition and good snipers . To defeat negan won’t be easy so de need to set traps and keep their distance

  9. Jermey says:

    I hated the first half of the season, but now that the group is back together and ready to fight – I can’t wait for the new episodes to start.

  10. jp says:

    why is there a template for circles on his desk?

  11. Jax&Juice's Girl says:

    Can’t wait for the show to come back!!!!! Maggie IS going to dethrone Gregory, he’s going to die regardless anyways. He’s nothing but a ass-kissing coward!

  12. Chris says:

    I heard Glenn was alive in the icy at hilltop loll no one carrack about this train wreck

  13. Durra Whitacre says:

    That “Lily livered”Gregory needs to be talked to by Jesus who will appeal to all of Hilltop to join the fight.I just want to know where they get guns guns guns…Oceanside maybe?????

  14. LOVE “THE WALKING DEAD” AMC TV HIT HORROR/DRAMA SERIES SINCE START FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME I’NEVER MISS AN EPISODE ONCE THE NEW SEASON’S FINALLY START AS WELL I’LOVE TOO THE NEW AMC HORROR/DRAMA SERIES “FEAR THE WALKING DEAD” AND “BREAKING BAD” ALSO ” BETTER CALL SAUL” “HALT AND CATCH FIRE” WELL IN FACT I ‘LOVE AMC AND EVERY TV SERIES THAT THEY AMAZINGLY MAKE JUST LOVED 🌟🌟🌟🌟

    • Max says:

      Are you serious?! Fear the Walking Dead is the trashiest spin off EVER and is making TWD look like a piece of sh*t. Bad acting, plot, characters bad everything in general. I for one think they need to pull the plug on Fear asap otherwise ratings for the main show will slide further.

      • Alex says:

        Lol the poor dear has yet to discover Netflix most likely. When that show The Santa Clarita Diet comes along it will blow Fear the Walking Idiots out of the water for good and just focus on what matters for the main shows reputation.

  15. Karen says:

    Yes Maggie needs to just remove Gregory and take over!

  16. Luis colon says:

    Maggie should take over already Gregory is a coward he is not capable of being a leader. She has more balls than he has.

  17. Philip partakis says:

    Gregory needs to grow a set of balls, stand aside and Let the real men and women kick negan in to touch permanently #killnegan

  18. Nami Honore says:

    The end of Negan… so sad!!!

  19. Boriski says:

    Just who is it that belongs to the boots at the zombie lake watching Rick and Aaron taking the goodies?And did Rick give those guns over to the saviours when they got back as I don’t recall seeing them!

  20. josh says:

    Just throwing it out there Beth is DEAD. I can’t believe anyone missed that.

  21. Zee says:

    Hey! Leave my sweet Gregory alone! Lol 😂!! My favorite character this season. He’s just so weaselly and hilarious 😂😂

  22. Latrell Parker says:

    I hope that Rick and his people take over Negan and the Saviors because I don’t like how they enslave people and kill people like animals!!
