AMC’s “The Walking Dead” has had its fair amount of twists and turns over its 11-season run, while spawning several spin-off shows along the way. The loyalty and alliances of each of the characters constantly shift, based on whichever dire situation they are facing next. One such character, Father Gabriel Stokes (played by Seth Gilliam), is no such stranger to such moments. Gabriel, who originally appeared in Season 5 of “The Walking Dead,” has often struggled with choices he made in the past, regarding saving — or not saving — innocents. That decision has weighed heavily on the character’s psyche.
Meanwhile, there’s Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), no stranger to a guilty conscience himself. In the most recent episodes, the conflict between Maggie (Lauren Cohen) and Negan comes to a head, when Negan nonchalantly admits to letting Maggie fall behind — leaving her to the devices of the zombies — only for her to escape and put Negan back in the spotlight.
