'The Walking Dead' Season 10: Will Negan become his old self? Promo shows him as a Saviour with baseball bat
In the latest promo of 'The Walking Dead', Negan is haunted by the memories of his old self.
Glenn (Steven Yeun) and Abraham's (Michael Cudlitz) brutal murder, being clubbed to death by a baseball bat at the beginning of Season 7 premiere will never be forgotten by the TWD loyalists. We've reached Season 10 now and even though their murderer Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) has worked hard to redeem himself, certain scars will never go away.
In the new trailer that AMC dropped for 'The Walking Dead''s six Season 10 bonus episodes, Negan fears that he is becoming a shadow of his old self. He sees the full Saviours version of himself, saying “Little pig, little pig, let me come in". Elsewhere in the promo, Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohen) speaks about Glenn's death to Daryl (Norman Reedus). She says that her son Hershel asked how his daddy died and she says a 'bad man killed him'. Her son asks, "Did he get what he deserved?" This means that Maggie is going to take her revenge sometime soon and that Negan's death could be the next on the cards, though without the help of a baseball bat.
Is Negan going to go back to his old ways?
The showrunners have attempted to follow the comic-book storylines and reform Negan, but perhaps, some crimes cannot be forgotten. Negan saved Judith Grimes (Cailey Fleming) during a snowstorm in Season 9, but his path to a better life was taken in Season 10. He infiltrated The Whisperers, won the demonic Alpha's (Samantha Morton) trust and then slit her throat and later stuck her head on a plaque. It was all part of a bargain with Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) and Negan carried Alpha's head back to her. Later in Season 10, Negan saved Daryl from The Whisperers. He also saved Sasha from being raped too. A strange mix, Negan doesn't condone rape but has managed to emotionally traumatize women on that show for a long time.
In other scenes of the promo, several other things are happening, including Aaron, threatening to put a gun to his head. What?!
Nevertheless, you can expect more zombie-killing, drama, unpleasant confrontations when the show returns on February 28, at 9 pm on AMC.
