All's fair in love and war, and we should see a bit of both in "The Walking Dead" Season 7 finale.

Season 7 is putting itself out of its misery ending this Sunday, April 2 with an emotional supersized finale. We should expect some death. According to AMC's synopsis for Episode 16, "The First Day of the Rest of Your Life":

"The stakes continue to grow higher as paths cross; the group enacts an intricate plan."

We know the plan is to use the guns Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) just got from Oceanside and use them to take down Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and the Saviors, with help from any members of the Scavengers, Hilltop, Kingdom, and Oceanside who are willing to jump in. (Plus Dwight.)

Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene Rhee) teased what's ahead to Harper's Bazaar:

"You're certainly in for a lot of emotion," she says after having a quick rhetorical debate with herself over whether or not to go as far as calling the finale "poetic." Eventually, she lands on describing it as "incredibly bittersweet, beautiful, and heartbreaking."

Greg Nicotero directed the Season 7 finale, and recently told Entertainment Weekly:

"I think it's one of the best scripts that we've ever produced, just in terms of pure character arc. And it really sums up the trajectory of the second half of the season perfectly. A lot of the questions, and a lot of the things that we spent time cultivating over the first half of the season and the second half of the season, definitely come to a head."

Nicotero had previously told ComicBook.com of the finale:

"It's an amazing script. It was written by Scott [Gimple] and Angela [Kang] and Matt Negrete. How can you get along with those three? It's everything that you would ever want. It's thrilling. It's emotional. It's powerful. Everything that's -- when our show fires on all cylinders, you can't stop it."

The two photos shown above are from Episode 16, including Eugene (Josh McDermitt) and Negan. Keep an eye on what's behind them, as it may be important.

After this episode, TWD will be done until Season 8 starts in October. They should begin filming for Season 8 in early May, as usual.

"The Walking Dead" finale airs Sunday at 9 p.m. on AMC.
