Ever since the San Diego Comic-Con premiere of the first trailer, season details, and announcement of the premiere date for the highly-anticipated seventh season, talk regarding The Walking Dead has just been ramping up more and more as of late. Despite fans still having legitimate problems with season six’s finale as well, the intrigue to see how the show handles the presence of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan (and other new additions) moving forward is an exciting kind.

The fallout from the mystery victim’s death should reverberate throughout the entire season like a bell as well, and it’s looking more and more like season seven of the show could be its most somber yet, which is saying something considering the depression a number of these characters have already gone through.

While speaking with Entertainment Weekly as well, Daryl Dixon himself, Norman Reedus, said that the death will impact the group in both positive and negative ways, and may create fractures that aren’t easily healed between some of the main members:

“It affects the group completely differently. You know, everyone, it affects them differently. Some relinquish power. Some accept it. Some fight it. There are people questioning it. There are people pointing their fingers. There are people blaming themselves. Other things happen that completely destroy people. The group is completely broken apart at this point. Negan has come in and completely shaken up everything. Loyalties are broken, belief in one another, belief in ourselves. Each individual is completely broken, and they don’t all handle it the exact same way.”

In addition to the group’s reaction though, the new season seems like it’ll be the show’s most expansive yet, and seeing how it works to balance all of the new storylines and characters with the old should be just as interesting to watch as anything else. Plus, the new season’s going to have a big ass tiger in its lineup this time around. If there was ever a reason to be excited about The Walking Dead, that might be one of the best.

The Walking Dead season seven will premiere on AMC on October 23rd.
