Super Bowl, Schmuper Bowl. The real big Sunday action takes places this weekend with the February 12 midseason premiere of The Walking Dead. To say that you're pumped is an understatement. The only problem is that it's been two months since the last episode aired, and you're struggling to remember where things stand. Glenn got brained... and then what?

The good news is that there's still time to squeeze in a quick binge-watch before Sunday. Alternatively, you can consider this a handy cheat sheet to help refresh your memory. From Negan and Lucille's bloody rampages to Maggie Rhee's resistance and persistence, season 7 has already given fans a lot to digest. As the second half gets underway, take a moment to catch up on the main plot points and latest victims.

And remember: Andrew Lincoln himself has promised one hell of a finale. We're going to hold you to it, Rick.

Negan's killing spree continues.

We know you haven't forgotten how Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) brutally beat Glenn and Abraham to death with Lucille — in fact, you're probably still having nightmares. In the midseason finale, he added Spencer (Austin Nichols) to his kill list, then ordered for Olivia (Ann Mahoney) to be shot dead. Lucille may have taken a bullet, but we doubt that'll slow this brutal batter down.

Rick is fired up and ready to fight.

The days of trying to placate Negan are over. Thanks to a pep talk from Michonne and his digest at Negan's latest killings, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) is ready to unleash some whoop-ass. He's also reunited with Maggie, Daryl, Michonne, Sasha, etc. at the Hilltop Colony, setting the stage for a major showdown against the Saviors.

"You see a man in action again with some of the members of his closest family," Lincoln teased Entertainment Weekly about the episodes to come. "There’s sort of a freedom in him, a feeling that comes from losing everything, and also the thrill of the fight...He’s back in. All I’m saying is that the band is back together. It’s The Magnificent Seven in the back half."

Eugene is in deep shit.

Eugene (Josh McDermitt) was hauled off as a hostage after confessing to having made the bullet that struck Lucille. Nobody wants to be on Negan's bad side.

A mysterious creeper is watching everyone.

"I always feel like somebody's watching meeeee"... Rick and Aaron and Father Gabriel have all been peeped by a spy outfitted with boots and binoculars. The anonymous figure was last seen heading to Alexandria, and will certainly be exposed soon.

King Ezekiel is a major power player.

Will The Kingdom's leader break his truce with Negan to join forces with the Hilltop crew? Will the all-female Oceanside commune get involved? Expect some shifting alliances to take shape.

Carol just wants to be alone.

Perpetual buttinsky Carol (Melissa McBride) is now opting out of the whole zombie warfare thing, Per her conversation with Morgan at The Kingdom, she just wants to be left to her garden. That'll last long.

Maggie continues to be a badass.

The recently widowed Maggie Rhee (Lauren Cohan) has basically won the popular vote as leader of the Hilltop Colony. Now reunited with Rick and co. and pregnant with Glenn's baby, she's ready for war. The fact that Negan still thinks she's dead should prove crucial.
