The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 16: The First Day Of The Rest Of Your Life
Sunday night marks the end of The Walking Dead’s seventh season. The AMC series will air its Season 7 finale.
Episode 7×16 is titled, “The First Day Of The Rest Of Your Life.” The official synopsis for the finale episode reads, “The stakes continue to grow higher as paths cross; The group enacts an intricate plan.”
Based on the previews for the coming episode, it’s safe to say that Negan and Rick will come face to face for a showdown. In Episode 7×15, Negan made Sasha and the audience aware that a “little birdie” told him Rick is up to no good. He is on his way to Alexandria to straighten this issue out. Given the expectations for Sasha to bow out, it seems like she might not be alone in a finale sendoff.
The Season 7 finale is directed by Greg Nicotero, who also helmed the Season 7 premiere, Episode 7×02, the midseason 7 premiere, and Episode 7×12. Nicotero is often tasked with emotional episodes which involve major character growths or endings. With the groups looking ready to unite for the first time against Negan and the Saviors, Sunday night’s episode might have a touch of both in the extended, 85-minute conclusion.
Eugene returns to the Safe-Zone for the first time since joining Negan. Dwight’s true allegiance will be explored. Carol will return to kill-to-survive form. The episode promises to have all the elements fans of The Walking Dead love.
Episode 7×16 rounds out a controversial season of the zombie drama. What started as Negan bashing the skulls of Abraham and Glenn, followed by seemingly endless oppressing of Alexandria, became Rick finding his bravery and leadership in an effort to rally the Hilltop, Kingdom, and new friends at the junkyard against Negan. Whether his plan will pay off or a war will ensure will likely be revealed in Sunday night’s finale.
As for the ratings of Season 7, the season started with over 17 million people tuning in to watch the highly anticipated premiere on October 23, 2016. Since, the viewership has dropped down closer to 10 million per episode live but never dipping below eight digits.
