The focus of the Season 7 midseason finale of The Walking Dead will once again be on Alexandrians and Negan, the leader of The Sanctuary, who has managed to make Rick forget that he was once a leader of the community. Ever since the gruesome deaths of Glenn and Abraham in the Season 7 premiere, Rick's focus has been on bringing back goods to please Negan.

The finale is titled Hearts Still Beating and the synopsis reads: "Negan's unwelcome visit to Alexandria continues as other members scavenge for supplies; things quickly spin out of control."

Season 7 episode 7 of The Walking Dead saw Negan giving Carl a tour of The Sanctuary, and in turn asking Carl to take him around Alexandria. As the hour ended, we saw Negan telling Carl that he might kill him off along with Rick and claim Alexandria as his own. Negan is on the porch with Carl and Judith waiting for Rick, and the former officer isn't going to be too thrilled when he gets back home.

According to actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays Negan, the midseason finale is going to be big. "It's creepy, man. It's creepy. We'll see where that goes. Mid-season finale, you know it's going to be big," he told Entertainment Weekly. However, it is not immediately known if it will feature yet another death.

Morgan also opened up about Negan's fascination with Carl, saying his character would have loved to have a child like him.

"I just think that if Negan were to have a kid, he would want him to be this kid," Morgan said. "He respects this kid and maybe he sees a bit of himself in him. His initial read on Carl as a little future serial killer is not only a great line, but there's something he sees in Carl. Carl never has backed away from Negan. His dad has been in tears and no one else will make eye contact, yet Carl never breaks eye contact with Negan during the lineup or anything else, anything we've shot. He's always pissed and I think there's just a lot of respect there that Negan has for this kid to grow up in this world as he has and survive as long as he had. Negan just simply respects him."
