One of the producers said on Talking Dead that Karl didn't want to kill his followers.

He did kill two of them but by not killing Negan, someone will pay the consequences.

Megan makes his followers kneel and be grateful for the few crumbs he tosses out to them. He gives them points for showing loyalty.

But if he's oppressive enough, I don't know how some of them don't conspire to kill him. It's not like he's some intimidating figure with his inability to fill in those skinny jeans.

While he's liquored up and screwing his harem, he could be so easily got.

Did anyone else notice how Negan hid, cowardly, behind his guys outside of the truck ? Not that it would do much good if Carl did decide to unload on them.

Also, Daryl leaned over very quickly and whispered something to Carl after Carl got out of the truck. He couldn't have said more than a couple words though as quick as it was.

BTW, Morgan referred in an interview to "years" of a relationship between Karl and Negan.

Ugh.

This is what bothers me the most about this story line. The two people closest to Neegan have easy access to guns (Dwight) and Neegan (the wife), they both despise him, and have tried to escape once before, so they obviously don't care about the "protection" living in Neegan's compound provides. It would be very easy for Dwight to slip her a weapon, she kills him at night, and they both get away in a truck loaded with supplies before anyone knows what happened. The ensuing chaos would give them a good headstart should any of Neegan's lieutenants take over and try to retaliate and prevent them from getting away.

Way too much Negan. I can take him in smaller doses. But 90 minutes of almost all Negan was too much. Also this situation makes me think of the Pixar movie A Bugs Life. When the ants realize they have the numbers against the bigger and stronger grasshoppers and rise up. I hope the ants rise up soon. Don't know how much more Negan rambling I can take.

Problem is, the producers and the rest of the cast think Morgan is killing it as Negan, how his performance is charismatic enough to become as big a draw as any other character on the show.

They like to feature that poster of him with the bat and the grinning face.

Like I said before, they have nothing on the GoT writers on creating great villains.

Based on the pacing it seems like they'll wrap up Negan and the Saviors end of this season.

This line intentionally left blank.

I found this a very tedious episode.

They set up the Carl on the truck bit episodes back. Now he finally gets there and freezes at the prime moment of action... only to kill the underlings instead.

We all know that they plan on Negan being around, so they should use the time to add some much needed intrigue, rather than assassination attempts we know will fail.

So now he is away from his castle, with less protection. Perfect time to off him. Something tells me that it ain't going to happen

For me, it's not just the rambling.

It's that little lean back, then lean in thing he does every time he says literally anything at all. It's as if he has to catch a cheese ball in his mouth, then chew it before he talks.

It's like he thinks he's John Wayne, pausing at the doorway before saying his last line prior to exiting the scene.

If you use FF to skip every second he's on the screen, you won't miss a single bit of the story. What an incredibly boring character and a horrible waste of screen time. It's becoming apparent the writers are using him so they don't have to actually write any story.
