The Walking Dead Recap: Did Maggie Kill Negan?
Ever since the brutal murder of Glen on The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 1, the love of his life, Maggie has been desperately trying to find a way to avenge his death.
Sunday’s episode of the AMC hit found Maggie arming herself to murder Negan, the former leader of the Saviors who carried out the deed.
Jesus was on Maggie’s side, insisting that Rick was in the wrong for allowing Negan to breathe another day, but was another murder the way forward?
“I am,” she claimed after Jesus asked whether she was the right one to make the decision. “I’ll be back when it’s done.”
As Maggie set off on her fateful mission, Rick was learning a whole lot of bad news from Eugene.
The bridge the communities were trying to restore was damaged beyond repair thanks to a storm, making all of the efforts a waste of time.
Eugene felt awful that he couldn’t salvage the bridge and felt like if he had studied some different things he could have helped.
It was a bad news day all round for Rick as he learned that Carol was taking her people back to the Kingdom and that Maggie was gearing up to kill Negan.
Rick sent a message to Alexandria to keep Maggie away from the villain and set off to get there to deal with the situation.
In a surprisingly silly move, Rick accepted a ride from Daryl, who took him in a different direction. That’s when Rick realized that his leadership was being called into question.
The two men found themselves in a ditch and trying to get to the root cause of their issues, but Daryl admitted he would be ecstatic if Maggie took Negan out of the equation.
“I’d die for you, and I would’ve died for Carl,” Daryl concluded. “But you’re chasing something for him that ain’t meant to be, man.”
While the men were hashing out their differences, Negan was trying to get closer to Michonne. Negan was having some sort of protest that found him refusing to eat food.
“The hunger strike ends today,” Michonne complained, but Negan continued to imply that the two of them were very similar and that they would work well together.
“Behind walls, bars, we die,” he said, before saying she was likely happy that she lost her son.
“Because you know all he woulda done was make you weak,” the villain said. But Michonne was done listening to him.
As if that was not enough action for one outing, Carol caught up with the Saviors and realized they knew all about the Oceansiders offing their people.
The most surprising thing here was that Carol was retreating because she was leading her people home.
“You’re a weak little woman who got in a lucky shot,” Jed laughed at her, and that’s when Carol opened fire.
Back in Negan’s little cell, Michonne returned to make him aware that they couldn’t be more different, and that while he has nothing to live for, she has her daughter and will battle for the life she deserves.
In the end, Rick had to do battle with herds of walkers and found himself falling off his horse and out cold.
Rick’s final episode airs on AMC next week. Could he be turning into a walker?
