Click to follow

Have you started breathing again following last week's intense episode of The Walking Dead - the one which centred on Daryl's imprisonment at the hands of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan)? 

Well, you've only got a few days to muster up the courage to continue - and etch "Easy Street" from the pangs of your memory - as episode four is almost upon us.

This time we're back with Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and co for the first time since the traumatic season opener that saw the death of two main characters.

When's it on?

Episode 3 will drop in the US on Sunday 13 November with FOX airing the episode the following evening in the UK at 9pm

What's it called?

This week's instalment is titled 'Service' which we can only assume alludes to one thing - the work our crew must do for Negan and his Saviours.

What can we expect?

A return to Alexandria

Having spent episode two with Carol, Morgan and new addition King Ezekiel (not forgetting his pet tiger, Shiva), and episode three with Daryl at the Sanctuary, this week will see the majority of The Walking Dead's characters converge at Alexandria Safe-Zone - including a bruised-looking Daryl.

Lots of Negan

With Morgan now a part of the main cast, the writers are clearly relishing the opportunity to pen dialogue for such a fearsome character. 

More Saviours

Negan's brought an entire squad of Saviours with him for the journey, including Dwight (Austin Amelio). Quite why they're there, we don't know but we're sure it has something to do with the 'service' he expects from them; you know, the one in exchange for him not beating them all to death with Lucille.

Feature length

Oh yeah, this week's  episode is a feature-length special clocking up an additional running time of around 15-20 minutes. What this could mean for our gang, we're ont sure; the best case scenario? 15 more thrilling minutes. The worst... Well, see below.

The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 4 Preview


Call us pessimistic, but the feature-length running time suggests that another character could be about to bite the dust. Nothing would solidify Negan's rule more than him reigning Lucille down on yet another unsuspecting character - especially considering Alexandria is home to plenty of extraneous people. Watch out, Spencer (Austin Nichols).

The Walking Dead airs in the US on Sundays with a UK airdate following a day later at 9pm on FOX
