Fans finally got the episode they were waiting for for years. Negan’s background was revealed in that episode. They took 4 years to give us that episode. Negan has become one of the fan-favorite characters on the show. Negan helped Alexandria beat “Whisperers” to win his place in the community. But, all his efforts failed when maggie returned. Maggie did spare his life years ago. But, watching him after all these years brought some gruesome memories back. Negan has to win Maggi’s trust or else she will kill him.
All the other members of the crew have seen Negan’s efforts and try to redeem himself. But, Maggie has been gone for years. She does not know Negan is changed. She still thinks of him as a man who brutally killed his husband and friends years ago. It is not going to be an easy road for both of the characters. Carol tried to diffuse the whole situation by moving Negan to the nearby cabin. As she revealed in the episode “she does not want his death to be on her con”. But, we saw him returning back to the community with a smirk on his face.
Maggie’s and Hershel’s lives are in danger.
Maggie has returned after a long time. There is a group that is after Maggie and her community. We also saw them in season 10 before they revealed about the commonwealth. However, the group destroys every community they find. Maggie is afraid that they will follow her back to Alexandria.
Negan saved Alexandria from the Whisperers. Negan is clever and smart. He also has a soft spot for the kids. He had a good relationship with Carl when Rick was at war with the saviors. Fans think that there might be a scenario where Negan might save Maggie from Hershel. He might risk his life for either one of them. it is not confirmed yet how they will resolve things between both of these characters.
Look, Negan killed Maggie’s husband and burned down her house, so it’s not gonna be an easy road, I think, for either of them. And Negan’s been on this whole other journey while she’s been gone, but it’s sort of like Maggie’s coming in and she hasn’t seen any of that What she knows is she comes back and Hilltop is destroyed, and the guy she thought she’d left to rot in prison is out walking around with everybody else. I think these two have to figure out how to occupy the same space. It will hopefully be really fun.
These two amazing actors; we’ll try to write to their amazing abilities and see what happens.
