    I don't believe there is a thread out here for general speculation about Season 7. So, here we go, speculate to your heart's content.

    So does that mean we get a bottle episode for him. If so I hope it's better than the governor ones.

    Don't think this is the original article, but it includes the relevant quotes. I don't think we'll get in depth Governor-like bottle episodes. It sounds like they'll include details, but they have no plans to flesh out his entire background. It might be done during the Sanctuary bottle episodes.

    Sorry if this has already been discussed and I am being redundant.

    I found myself wondering about the book on Rick's nightstand in every Richonner's favorite scene in East. I googled and found an interesting bit posted on TSDF by a user named Sissy:

    Something I noticed in the episode 15 EAST. There was a book sitting on the night stand next to Rick and Michonne when they were in bed together. I think this book was a little clue. So, I looked up the plot summary.
    Ok, here are Seven points about the Plot of the book "The Indwelling" . It's very interesting.

    PLOT
    1. It's the midpoint of the seven-year Tribulation. A renowned man is dead,
    and the world mourns. (Could this represent DARYL?? Oh say it isn't so)
    2. In heaven, (ALEXANDRIA??) the battle of the ages continues to rage until it spills to earth and all hell breaks loose. (The saviors coming to Alexandria for war?)
    3. The members of the Tribulation Force, three in the safe house and the rest scattered about the globe, face their most dangerous challenges. (The Group scattered around looking for Daryl and Carol)
    I actually think this could be in reference to the group splitting between the 3 communities (Hilltop/ASZ/Kingdom)
    4. Rayford Steele (RICK?) must escape.
    5. Buck Williams must find a friend. (Morgan looking for Carol and/or Glenn looking for Daryl??)
    6. Chloe, Buck's wife, despairs for the life of her baby. (Maggie? Could she loose the baby?)
    7. David, Annie, Mac, and Abdullah are toiling inside the very lair of the evil one, (Glenn, Michone, Daryl and Rosita trapped in the woods by the saviors? And is Neagen the evil one?)

    Is the Zombie Apocalypse actually the 7 year tribulation?????


    I know this goes back to Lucille spec, but also touches on the baby, Carol... I'm going to look for more clues.

    hmmm.....

    I'm curious what you smart people think about this? Anyone familiar with this book or Assassins? Both are a part of the Left Behind series.

    ****** Assassins (the book on Michonne's nightstand) is the book before The Indwelling.
    The Indwelling is the SEVENTH book of the series.

    just added a little edit that this is the 7th book of the series. Assassins (the book on Michonne's nightstand) was the 6th.

    Great find, App! A lot of this seems to line up with series. I may just add this to my summer reading list since it's sorely lacking.

    I think they may just be very loosely basing some of the plot on these novels. It's something interesting to speculate on at least!

    I think season 7 is going to focus on how isolated and alone Rick is. All of his friends will be gone or giving him the cold shoulder.

    Carl will be disappointed in him.
    Daryl will be dead.
    Glenn will be at Hilltop with Maggie (after losing their child).
    Michonne will be captured by Negan, held up at Sanctuary.
    Carol and Morgan will be LARPing it up over at the Kingdom.

    Like, all Rick will have is Gabriel, Eugene, and Aaron. :gabe: (As I think Rosita, Spencer, Abraham, and Sasha will be pissed at him too). Eugene and Gabe will be sympathetic to Rick b/c they understand the tactical significance of playing possum/cowardice.

    Rick is going to have to win everyone back over. It's going to be rough as fuck. And he'll be wrestling with his withered confidence and waning mental stability solo.

    For once, Rick will have to pull himself up by his bootstraps instead of relying on his friends.

    What does it say about me that I'm completely looking forward to this scenario? I really love the idea of Gabe, Aaron, and Eugene trying to console/cheer up Rick: it sounds both sweet and hilarious. And it means that Rick won't be truly isolated; he'll have support but just not of his inner circle/closest confidants.

    Now I am just imagining Eugene, Gabe, and Aaron trying to bring a depressed Rick over for game night. :lol:

    I love this scenario too even though it'll hurt like hell to watch. I really do wanna see Rick come out of this on his own.

    Tbh... Sasha, Abe, Rosita and especially Spencer would need to chill TF out. Abe and Sasha came on their own accord when Rick was like nah. So I guess angry at no vengeance yet? But the last time they just ran up without thinking it didn’t end so well...

    I wonder if Rick, if your spec is true, would be scared Rick without his group and Michonne or possum Rick, keeping everyone out to keep them safe.

    (For my own sanity I hope the later, but I'm filing my nails early just in case.)

    I've been thinking about these Negan episodes and I think one of them will show his side of things during the week leading up to LDOE. Maybe we'll get to see something with Dwight and how he joined up wit the Saviors again or got back in Negan's good graces.

    I want to see what he did to Dwight's face.
