Ahhh, finally. Some good news about "The Walking Dead" Season 7. The start of the season has been declared a graphic "downer" and the first half synopsis is about as pleasant as the prison flu. But at least Richonne shippers have something to look forward to, thanks to some new set reports from The Spoiling Dead Fans.
Season 7 premieres October 23, but the AMC show has been filming since May. At this point, they are deep into the second half. TSDF regularly shares sightings from the set, and on September 28 they reported about Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) filming at an abandoned school, where it looked like maybe a school carnival was happening when the apocalypse hit.
As TSDF wrote:
"Filming was back at the abandoned school on Monday and Tuesday. Rick and Michonne were filming again. We hear that they have a close call with walkers on the carnival set. There's also whispers that Rick and Michonne might share some *ahem* 'intimate' moments at the school... *Cue 80's porn music*"
Well! Never mind a "dang romance novel," TWD is now starting to sound like a dang high school prom. But we're not mad. The more Richonne the better. Apparently we're not alone in that thought:
So the good news is that Rick and Michonne are alive and -- if this is true -- pretty darn well in the second half of Season 7. Meanwhile, back when Episode 10 of 16 was filming, TSDF had a report about Daryl and Carol filming together. Not saying they were romantic, but that also qualifies as good news -- showing they are/were both alive, and reunited, in the second half.
Of course, we know at least one character dies right away in the Season 7 premiere, courtesy of Negan's bat Lucille, and word on Zombie Street has it that another member of our group dies right after that.
"The Walking Dead" Season 7 starts Sunday, October 23 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
