Spoilers for 'The Walking Dead' Season 10 extended episodes

It is finally here - 'The Walking Dead' Season 10 (extended episodes) finale 'Here's Negan' might be one of the best episodes this season. Not to mention, it is an episode that makes fans anticipate the final season (11) of AMC's zombie apocalypse thriller. So far this season gave fans many introspection scenes on their favorite characters such as Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) and Daryl (Norman Reedus), we even saw an amazing Princess episode and learned about Daryl's Leah. This episode though, the finale takes us through flashbacks showing us Negan's (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) pre-apocalypse, before his brutal Savior days.

It's hard to forgive Negan for all that he's done, both fans and the characters - especially Maggie (Lauren Cohan) - have a lot of resentment for him. 'Here's Negan' challenges us to feel a bit of empathy for the villain, as we see his days struggling to help his cancer-stricken wife Lucille (Hilarie Burton Morgan). Also, he digs out his infamous bat Lucille (named after his wife). His wife, we learn had killed herself, which is what birthed Lucille the barbed wire bat which he then burns later in the episode. Will Season 11 see the changed Negan, or his old "little pig, let me in" self?

Fans were overjoyed with this episode because if there were to be an introspection episode, we've always wanted it to be about Negan. There had to be a reason he turned out to be a brutal murderer and now we know why. In some ways, it's great to know he wasn't always like this. "And it truly gives you a glimpse of how the apocalypse changes people in different ways. Like Beta, we know he was a country singer but we didn't see him like that, now with Negan we actually get a chance to see he wasn't always a cold-blooded murderer #TWD," wrote one fan. Another added, "I had already come around on Negan but this episode is just making me like him even more. #TWD #TheWalkingDead." "My god.... @JDMorgan and @HilarieBurtoacting is incredible. this is by far one of the best walking dead episodes i’ve seen. and extremely relatable because i’m also going through cancer. so much love to you both <3 #heresnegan #TheWalkingDead #twd," tweeted another fan.

Some of course had empathy for the villain, but we haven't forgotten how he killed Glenn Rhee( Steven Yeun). "He clearly lost his mind after she died. Doesn't make the murders okay. #TWD," wrote one user. But another added a sentiment that we were all thinking writing, "Nobody will ever see negan the way lucille saw him #TWD." 



 

 



 


The chemistry between Negan and Lucille was definitely off the charts and it makes sense though considering the actors playing the roles are husband and wife in real life. Fans were very excited to have the finale episode show them some much-deserved screen time. Also, where's our much-needed spinoff?

"I just enjoy the chemistry that @JDMorgan and @HilarieBurton have. They are truly undeniably cute. You can tell that they really love each other! Can we please have a Negan and Lucille spin off limited series?! @WalkingDead_AMC @AMCTalkingDead #TheWalkingDead  #TWD  #HeresNegan," asked one fan. "Those scenes of Negan and Lucille during that montage were definitely made up of Jeffrey and Hilarie having fun and being in love and I think that's beautiful. #TWD #TheWalkingDead," added another fan. Another said, "Let me just put it out there that it is borderline -criminal- that we don’t get more of @JDMorgan & @HilarieBurtontogether on TWD. Wow, what an episode! Truly a masterpiece. Makes me want a Negan & Lucille spinoff #TWD "



 

 



 

 



 

 

Lucille (Hilarie Burton Morgan) in 'The Walking Dead' (AMC)

As of now, besides the spinoffs 'World Beyond' and 'Fear the Walking Dead', there is also an upcoming Daryl and Carol spinoff confirmed and a movie with Rick Grimes and Michonne. There hasn't been word on a Negan and Lucille spinoff, although that would be amazing for fans. Who knows? With 'The Walking Dead' universe expanding, creators of the show might give fans this gem of a spinoff - only time will tell.

The end of 'Here's Negan' sees him smirking at Carol when he heads back into Alexandria making us wonder if he's truly changed? That smirk has been his vicious trademark - along with his bat Lucille - for a while now and of course, we're at the edge of our seats for the final season. Negan's story isn't over, it seems.

The final season of 'The Walking Dead' will premiere on August 22, 2021.
