In The Walking Dead season 11, episode 7, Negan made a bold statement about his actions in the season 7 premiere, but was he really wrong?
Warning! SPOILERS ahead for The Walking Dead season 11, episode 7.
Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) made a bold statement in The Walking Dead’s latest episode when he told Maggie (Lauren Cohan) that he should have killed the whole group. Apparently, the former Savior now believes that the deaths of Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Maggie and everyone else would have better than the original outcome.
Over the past few seasons, The Walking Dead has looked back quite a few times on Negan’s decision to murder Glenn (Steven Yuen) and Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) in the season 7 premiere. This particular moment in his life has been especially relevant in The Walking Dead season 11, now that Maggie is back, with revenge on her mind. While it’s true that Negan has changed since those days, the series has indicated that the character doesn’t wholeheartedly regret all of the wrongdoings he committed as the leader of the Saviors. He has expressed remorse over certain decisions, but he’s also defended both himself and his community for the way they handled the war with Alexandria, the Hilltop, and the Kingdom.
