Last week, we got the first look at Season 7 of The Walking Dead in a new poster that featured Jeffrey Dean Morgan‘s Negan, who entered the series at the end of Season 6 as its new villain, holding his beloved barbed-wire-wrapped baseball bat Lucille in front of his captives — Rick Grimes and his group. But who exactly is Negan’s intended victim?
We don’t know yet, but AMC has decided to tease us some more with character posters, with each one showcasing one of the victims getting a close-up look at Lucille.
SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale Episode 516 “Conquer.”
AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale — Episode 516 “Conquer” — aired on Sunday night and thankfully, we didn’t get the usual heartbreaking shockers that typically accompany these final episodes. Instead, we got, what I felt was, a perfect ending to a great season, especially these last few episodes.
The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which centered on the town meeting, where Rick’s fate was to be decided. AMC has also released two behind-the-scenes featurettes — one is a 3-minute “Making of” featurette on the booby trap scene, while the other is a 5 1/2-minute “Inside Look” at what was going on at the Alexandria Safe Zone, as well as what Daryl and Aaron came up against on the outside.

Warning – Spoilers for The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale – Episode 516 “Conquer.”
For tonight’s Season 5 finale of AMC’s The Walking Dead, the showrunners promised us blood. They promised us loss. And we got both of those things in Episode 516 “Conquer.” But, for this final installment of the season, we also saw redemption, forgiveness, and enlightenment, as well as a look at some of the real horrors that await the residents — both original and new — of the Alexandria Safe Zone.
It’s well known that fans of The Walking Dead have every intension of rioting if one of the main, fan-favorite characters dies. The show has made it a habit of shockingly killing off some of the beloved people who we’re just not ready to say good-bye to. Thankfully, for the season finale, they didn’t pull that gimmick. Instead, we see the culmination and resolution of some of the biggest, most contentious relationships and situations of this season.
Last night’s Episode 515 “Try” of AMC’s The Walking Dead saw Rick’s group in danger of losing their place at the Alexandria Safe Zone. They should feel safe and contented there, but they’ve been through too much to get comfortable, especially Rick, who we saw is a lot more damaged than we thought. He’s worried and he’s got a right to be, he’s just not going about getting his point across in the proper manner.
Next week marks the 90-minute Season 5 finale of The Walking Dead. AMC has released the first sneak peek of the season finale, Episode 516 “Conquer,” which sees Maggie coming to Rick’s defense to Deanna, but a decision must still be made.
Watch the sneak peek video here below, along with a teaser promo.
