'The Walking Dead' Fans Are Worried Maggie Is A Villain

'The Walking Dead' Fans Are Worried Maggie Is A Villain

It ended with a showdown between Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his greatest adversary yet - not the ever-growing horde of zombies marauding across the show's landscape, but baseball bat-wielding psychopath and fan favourite Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). He was also a former soldier, and he went on to become the leader of the reformed Saviors in the comics after Negan was toppled as leader. But Rick called for Siddiq to save Negan, much to Maggie Greene Rhee's anguish and fury. Though they question it, they create their strategy accordingly. Maggie let Alden (Callan McAuliffe), a redeemed former Savior, remain at the Hilltop, and Daryl (Norman Reedus) banished but spared Dwight (Austin Amelio), who had treated him so poorly at the Sanctuary. A counterpoint to Rick, perhaps, and a reminder of how not to do things. Fans of the Walking Dead comics probably got a surprise as well. The good news: There's a definitive answer to Negan's fate.

How awesome was it seeing Gabriel "Lady Bird" himself out of Negan's auto?

In "Wrath", Negan's plan to ambush Rick's ambush seemed to be working perfectly as Rick's team was surrounded by gun-toting Saviors. I guess this was supposed to convince us what a badass Savior Eugene now was since he pointed a gun in Gabriel's face and threatened to "crack your cranium". But that change of heart might have had as much to do with Morgan's vision of dead Savior Jared, who told Morgan he couldn't kill his way out of things, as anything Jesus said.

Right after the group spots an enormous herd of walkers in the distance, they hear whistling in a field. "Michonne, too", Maggie said. Negan's hand gets injured, and he immediately knows that Eugene messed with the bullets. Rick was on the ground; Negan was about to brain him with Lucille and Rick asked for a 10-second reprieve "for Carl". Eugene later admits to Rosita that it's her words that got through to him, and they reconcile.




While the war was between the survivors and The Saviors, the real battle came down to Rick and Negan. "No, he killed Glenn!" He tells Rick that maybe if he had killed him, Carl would still be alive. Rick pursues him and eventually confronts Negan underneath a tree with two pieces of stained glass swinging from its branches - the same tree The Walking Dead has been showing glimpses of all season. Negan counts down and, for a brief second, thinks that maybe Rick is right. This is the kind of emotional intra-community conflict that we haven't really seen since Shane, and which the show has been sorely lacking. "And anyone who can't live with that will pay the price, I promise you that". Rick says everyone needs to live in peace and fairness. As we've seen with the Saviors, just because some of them can be turned away from the dark side, not all of them will be. He believes that there has to be something afterwards. And do you want her on Fear The Walking Dead for many seasons to come? All their guns exploded in their hands, courtesy of defective ammunition designed by Eugene (Josh McDermitt), who had secretly switched allegiances again. Morgan went and visited Jadis as well, offering her an opportunity to return to the community if she so chose.

Except when it's not, since Morgan himself doesn't want to be around people anymore. When we last saw them, Madison, Alicia, Nick, Victor, Luci, and Daniel were all separated, namely by the explosion at the dam. The two boys agreed with her.

So long Dwight: While the Hilltoppers were practically singing "Kumbaya" with their former enemies the Saviors, Daryl couldn't let his beef with Dwight go. Daryl emerged from the shadows saying, "Yeah". Daryl just tosses vehicle keys at him.
