'The Walking Dead' Season 7 Episode 4 to Run for 85 Minutes
EW is reporting that the fourth episode of the new season for AMC zombie mega-hit will have an 85 minute runtime, as opposed to the usual 60 (or 45, if you count for ads). While the upcoming third episode is Daryl-centric (yay?), the fourth will feature Negan making his first arrival in Alexandria.
The logline for the fourth episode reads as: “The remaining members of the group try to keep it together in Alexandria; they receive a sobering visit.” Andrew Lincoln, who stars as Rick in the series, gives his word on Alexandria's reaction to what's happened.
“All I will say is that this is a rocky road. It’s a shocking beginning to a season, but it is the beginning of a season. That’s what people have to remember. This is where we begin, after the quake. This season is about rebuilding and about characters dealing with the trauma and grief of this brutal attack, but also this new regime that they are now a part of. And each react in their own individual ways. It’s more Lord of the Rings than Lord of the Flies this season.”
