Carl Grimes, Rick Grimes, Maggie Greene, Dwight, Morgan, Jesus, are just some of the names that have found themselves dead or away from The Walking Dead. Now another huge character, Negan, potentially could be off the show.
It’s pure speculation at this point, but what we do know for sure is the character that plays Negan, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, is going to reprise his role on episode 300 of the show Supernatural. I can’t say I know about the show much to be able to speak on it effectively, i know he is the father of Sam and Dean. Is this episode a one off episode for the character? Perhaps he is being brought back again full time, only time will tell and we don’t have enough information on that.
So what might that mean for Negan and the Walking Dead?
Currently Negan is back at the Sanctuary, which we don’t know what that might actually mean for him. Does he have plenty of time to get the Saviors back in order off screen so he can film episodes of Supernatural? Absolutely, could he do it for a number of episodes? I would say in theory yes, as that is what the Maggie character is doing as Lauren Cohen is on Whisky Cavalier.
Could it mean an early departure for Negan? It’s very possible, he has had some arcs via the comics that have already passed, with Dwight and Maggie, but in the comics he does have a large arc with the Whisperers that could still come into play. It’s also extremely possible they find a new way to write him out of the script, maybe in some sort of way protecting Judith because of his previous like of Carl, and his respect to Rick for saving his life?
As of right now nothing is OFF the table, but I’m curious, and a bit sad to think that my favorite show could be losing one of my all time favorite characters in a role that he is best at. A borderline like able bad guy. I think the show for sure could use him for some heavy lifting against the Whisperers.
What do you think? Is the end of Negan near?
