Negan showed sympathy for carls death, WOW

I think that this side of negan us something u wouldn't believe to see from him, i was so surprised about that scene, anybody else feel the same way?

    I did. Happy how they did it. Negan really believes in his cause. He's got a dictator mentality about it but does aim at keeping people alive.

    And u know what we call that, keeping people alive, its saving them, the saviors are good, but they want to be strong figures and kings, thats why they kill people and make them work

    It's good to see this side of his character. I still hate him tho

    In both the comics and the show, Negan has a connection with Carl, seeing him as the son he never had. Strangely, it happened when Carl bust into the Sanctuary, looking to kill Negan. It really earned Negan's respect.

    Yup, man-sized balls is what Negan said Carl had, if I remember correctly. Still think Negan doesn't live up to his Comic version. But he's pretty good.

    But damn, sometimes i get feelimg like fuck negan, and then i get the feeling like, nope, he cant die, he is the best

    I think he did that because he knew Rick was extremely angry and he didn't want to make him any more mad. He knew Rick was coming for him and he didn't want to give him more reason to kill him.

    @Tommy78 I disagree. Negan is so cocky in his own abilities and the abilities of his saviors that he doesn’t care about that. He actually enjoys enticing rick.

    He legitimately cared for Carl. And wanted him to join his ranks.

    I can't see how they will get away not killing Negan off,it wouldn't make sense to the plot,after all of that he lives.If Carl's letters save him I think that would be a poor reason,just my thoughts on it,even though I love watching Negan he's hilarious ☺

    One never knows where they stand with Negan. He is a bi-polar narcissist, although I love the character.
    In Rick's "visions of himself as an old man", Negan is present.
  • MadPuppyMadPuppy Moderator Posts: 2,829
    Those are/were Carls visions of what he thinks/thought the future could be like.

    Agree on Negan. The character works better in the comics I think. This actor is just a bit too likable I think. Need someone that actually feels dark at Negan's dark moments. This actor feels like he's... well, acting dark.

    But I think that’s what they wanted. They wanted him to be able to act like a human at times. Then bring the character back when he needs to. Hed be too much like simon if he was dark all the time. I think that’s the great difference between them. Negan actually has feelings and some form of humanity and Simon was just a ruthless killer with no remorse for human life whatsoever

    I think the whole Negan character is too unreal to take seriously. You can't flat out murder people in horrendous ways and then say that you care about people. Those two ideas are at serious odds with each other.

    I love the show, or used to. I really don't want to crap on it, but the things that play out leaves me no choice.

    What's special about Carl that Negan suddenly give two shits? Nothing. He was a main character and it was in the shows best interest to have him cared about. Do we believe that Carl was the the only decent person in the entire TWD universe? No. Some of the ideas and storyline that takes place is just not believable.
  • MadPuppyMadPuppy Moderator Posts: 2,829
    Negan has some trauma going on that causes triggers. It's believable enough for a story IMO. Although, as usual, TV doesn't do a very good job getting the nuances of the source material across.

    Negan is a secret softie underneath all the bashed in heads and barbwire bats 😍
