    I have always made that connection that gone unchecked this could be Shane.

    They do have the same potty mouth.

    Plus, Kirkman loves his parallels if we have Rick/the Governor, then I would not be surprised if there is a Shane/Negan comparison.

    Plus plus, Kirkman did say that Negan and Rick are two sides of the same coin. During season two Shane and Rick were at odds about how to lead the group, they were two sides of the same coin too.

    Yes indeed. Doing this more often would add a lot of continuity and characterization to the show. It would increase the quality of the episode.

    This....ALL of This!! You summed it up perfectly. My only negative thought, is somehow this takes away from him learning about Andre. Unless it is "understood" that he already knows.

    I agree.

    He needed to "shut Michonne's shit down"! He had to reach deep to make her stop.

    He confessed TWO things in telling her about Judith
    1. Judith is not his child
    2. Sometimes you have to lie to the world in order to protect your love ones.
    At the end there was a look almost of relief on his face when she finally agreed "to try" and not kill Negan and every single last saviour.

    THIS.

    (I couldn't just click "like" and move on. Had to get tissues for the reread, reread a few more times with tissues in position, calm down, and repost.)
