Meanwhile. Cinema Blend’s Corey Chichizola, speculated that the character will likely have a mental breakdown.

“It looks like Rick Grimes will be at the precipice of yet another mental breakdown in Season 7,” he said in his report. “I’m sure his gross beard will somehow magically grow back so the audience can see just how broken Rick is after losing one of his own, and half of their supplies, to Negan.”

The “Walking Dead” season 6 finale entitled “Last Day on Earth” showed how Rick Grimes and his group have survived after losing a battle to The Saviors. The season finale episode also showed Rick in the mercy of Negan and Lucille, who has more power when it comes to weapon and resources.

“Scott Gimple and I spent many months going over exactly how to stage it and how to adapt that scene,” he answered.  “Many options were discussed. I do strongly believe that when you watch the Season 7 premiere (if you do) you will see the two halves of the story and it will all make sense why we did what we did.”
