The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 2: 7 Things You Might Have Missed

Tainted Meat Pt. 2: The Revenge.

The Walking Dead Season 7 Tiger

Okay, so the second episode of The Walking Dead Season 7 wasn't a head-smashing romp. Instead it was a slow-burning tale full of intrigue, new locations, new characters, new ideas and a handful of little nods to previous moments in the show.

The Walking Dead creators love to craft a history behind the world they have constructed and Episode 2 provided fans with several moments that can be traced back to the good ol' days before fan favourites' brains were introduced to the cold, hard ground.

It was a far less rapid hour of television, but there was still plenty to soak up. Did you catch everything? Just in case, here's a full round-up of the blink-and-you'll miss it moments, throwbacks and hinted storylines that could come into play in the very near future...

7. Tainted Meat

The Walking Dead tainted pigs

"Tainted meat, TAINTED MEAT!" Bob Stookey, you crazy hero. Remember barbecued Bob? The cannibals seemed to thoroughly enjoy a spot of leg around the campfire until Stookey's bite revelation and subsequent hysterics about being a poisonous food source.

Is that what Ezekiel is trying to accomplish right now? And if so, why? His pigs are being fed and raised on walker meat which surely classes them as 'tainted' in the same way as Bob. There's a good chance Ezekiel thinks he can slowly poison the Saviours.

Unfortunately, if that is his plan, it's not going to end well. There's no proof to suggest that tainted meat actually is a nailed on way to kill a man, nor would Ezekiel stand a chance if Negan's men were all conveniently struck down by a mound of demon ham sandwiches. The only certainty is that the tainted meat question is once again open for theories.
