The Walking Dead and actor Andrew Lincoln returned last nightThe episode titled “Rock in the Road” was all about Rick forming the beginning of a resistance and laying more groundwork for an unholy war we’re all hoping to see unleashed on the enemy.But not everyone is immediately down to defeat them – and Rick still needs to get some key players to join in on his plan.Pacifist Morgan (Lennie James) tries to dissuade some of the others from attacking Negan and Saviors – suggesting that there will be unpleasant bloodshed resulting in the death of not just the enemy, but the innocent too.And despite Rick crucially trying to get King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) on side, the king responds: “I shall deliver my decree in the morn.”It’s not the first time the survivors have been up against a big bad in the show, but somehow the writers have managed to make this battle against the Saviors feel fresh and exciting – and the next few episodes should gradually roll out those willing to join Rick’s army.But first, the show picked up where we left off last year – with Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) on watch duty and an ominous stranger looking at him through a pair of binoculars.It turns out they had a good reason to be spying as Gabriel isn’t such a man of the cloth after all. Gabriel is seen doing a runner from Alexandria with a huge supply of food and weapons and even discarding his copy of the Bible.But where is going? And is he really as shady as the show would have us believe? It looks as though we’ll find out next episode – and at least for now it seems that Rick isn’t ready to write off Gabriel just yet.All in all, the episode was undoubtedly a return to form for the series. After what was a painful start (not just for us, but for the characters that died a gruesome death) the seventh season is well and truly getting its groove back.That’s down to seeing Rick and the rest of his crew get the fight back in their eyes, and stopping playing the victim to Negan and his thugs.While he may have had some wins and some loses in recruiting a full army (find out next week what King Ezekiel has to say) one thing is clear and that’s Rick is ready for war – and so are we.
