With the dynamic between the two survivors – victim and executioner – being the most anticipated by fans of the series since the former Hilltop leader returned to find that Glenn’s killer was now a free man, the series team has bet for leading the survivors on their own adventure apart from the rest of the group and forcing them to interact.

On his mission to Meridian, Negan empathizes with Maggie and the community she helped build and later lost completely as a result of her war against the Reapers. “I remember when my house was invaded and my people were killed. My men suffered a loss that I could not heal. And I had to explain to them why their leader had failed in the mission to protect them,” he snapped at Maggie, reminding her of that first attack in the that Rick and his men killed a good handful of Saviors while they slept.
You killed people who had families. And you did it in front of their families
Maggie’s response, in clear reference to Glenn (Steven Yeun), makes the viewers’ hair stand on end when they remember that fateful moment in the season 7 premiere. A moment that none of them will be able to forget and that will always mark Negan as part of the group no matter how much it has been redeemed years later. The former leader of the Saviors did not deny what he did, but he did justify it: “The world is different now, Maggie. Fewer people to fight for and with. There are fewer things to fight for.”

Although many followers of the series believe that there is a certain ‘feeling’ between the two survivors, the truth is that no matter how much they survive together, the chances of reconciliation between them are quite slim. They spoke about it themselves in statements to SensaCine at the beginning of the new season: “I don’t know if we will achieve an easy solution without consequences, to be honest, and I don’t think it’s possible to just let it be.. […] It is a challenge how these two characters are going to get along in the long term and how their relationship is going to be, “explained Cohan.
For his part, Norman Reedus would solve it with a good kiss, although to get serious immediately afterwards he offered a more interesting reflection: “Negan has done some good things but for our characters, he will always be the bad guy, and there are many things in this world. that make you look like the bad guy even when you do good things. “Time is passing and I think I would let them figure it out themselves.”
