Although Negan surprises Rick and the group in this preview for the next episode of ‘The Walking Dead,’ he also brings along a very familiar face: Daryl.
Well, that sucks. Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) shows up much earlier than Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the rest of Alexandria were expecting, and just to rub it in he brings Daryl (Norman Reedus) along with him. Ouch.
As you can see, Rick is hesitant to let Negan inside Alexandria… but what choice does he has? Negan faces Rick and even Rosita (Christian Serratos) upon his arrival, but gets distracted by a walker who appears after all of the noise from his arrival. Not only does Negan have Daryl with him, sticking by Dwight’s side, but he has maybe a dozen or so of his men. This seems to throw Rick off, but apparently Negan has plans for Alexandria… and he didn’t think a warning was necessary after taking both Glenn and Abraham’s lives in front of the small town’s leader.
So, what is Negan up to? Is he just there to check things out, or is he looking to raid the town for things he needs/wants? Could he just be there to light a fire under Rick’s you-kn0w-what? Or is this just another way to torture Daryl into submission? I guess we’ll just have to wait until Sunday, November 13, to find out.
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — Do YOU think Negan will ever release Daryl back to Rick, or is there no chance of him ever being free again? Comment below.
